Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online
Ghost Recon Online is the newest entrant into the free to play first person shooter market. And it just may be the best of them all! GRO is developed by world renowned developer Ubisoft, which means they have the might and the muscle to make this game great. This is the first Ghost Recon game to be specifically designed for the PC and the fact that it enters as a free to play title makes this one to behold. Ubisoft plans to make regular updates to the game so i hope you plan on setting aside a great deal of time is you click play!
Wolf Team promises to offer all the fast paced action that you would expect from an FPS with one game changing element: players can transform between human and wolf at will. Giving players freedom to access this ability forces them to rethink the play styles to which they have become accustomed, offing a breath of fresh air in a genre that has become overly formulaic throughout the years. While humans have access to the wide variety of weaponry available in the game, wolves (deprived of weapons) find advantages through increased speed and stamina, and special abilities such as wall climbing. All that remains to be seen is: Are you Team Human, or Team Wolf? Try it out and let us know!
You know you're in good hands with EA, developer of the Battlefield series, at the helm of this quirky shooter. Offering an experience that is starkly different than the gritty, realistic Battlefield series games that we're accustomed to, Heroes takes a lighter approach to war with humor and colorfully-animated graphics. The game pits the National Army against the Royal Army and offers different classes of gunners. While each class has certain advantages through weaponry, they are all completely balanced statistically to offer an even playing field -- a quality that makes Heroes a great candidate for gamers of any experience level. Those looking for a more casual approach to the genre should feel right at home.
Offensive Combat is a game that knows how to have fun. Colorful, stylized graphics, vast gun collections and unique environments combine to create an experience that doesn't take itself too seriously -- and that's a good thing! This arcade style, browser based multiplayer shooting game offers diverse customization of gametypes and weaponry ensuring that no two games play alike. The game also manages to incorporate a fair amount of crude humor to break up the fast paced action, keeping the mood fun, yet intense! Offensive Combat is a game that would be well worth your buck. Luckily, you don't need to spend a thing!
Building off of the groundbreaking original, PlanetSide 2 is a free-to-play, massively multiplayer online first person shooter (MMOFPS). This epic shooter brings enormous maps, complex, hard-fought continent-spanning battles and still delivers the unrelenting, adrenaline pumping, FPS action.

Censorship Spells Trouble for League of Legends Patcher
Internet filtering has been a hot button issue for the past several years. With the slow gutting of protective measures like Net Neutrality, and with governmental powers seeking an end to online anonymity, it's rather harrowing to see the slow progression of political and social policing of the internet. Recently, after about a year of lobbying, the United Kingdom enacted a piece of legislation that many have come to call the "UK Porn Filter." What the filter requires is for British ISP's to implement filters and controls, which are on by default, that will block access to "violent material," not imited to "extremist and terrorist related content," "anorexia and eating disorder websites," and "suicide related websites."
