Alan Wake 2 Review: A Must-Play Psychological Horror Experience

Easily, the best horror game in years.

In 2010 Remedy Entertainment released Alan Wake, a game where a writer is pulled into a horrifying world seemingly of his own creation. Alan Wake was a game that I bounced off at least two times. Despite the game being well received by critics and fans, I felt like its gameplay was just a repetitive slog that even its unique story could not overcome. When a sequel was announced by Remedy, I found myself extremely indifferent to the news. Still...

Review: Starfield

A safe, if not soulless, journey through the cosmos.

Bethesda Game Studios releases are safe. They are familiar. You know almost exactly what to expect when a major new release from them rolls around. They instill a feeling of "I know this game won't be groundbreaking, but I know I'll have fun." Yes, there are some obvious differences, but the heart of each Bethesda game is almost universally the same. The recent release of Starfield is no different. To put it bluntly: Starfield is Fall...

  • Poll: Have You Ever Raged Because of a Game?

    Poll: Have You Ever Raged Because of a Game?

    Yes, I've raged. Full on broken controller & hole in wall levels of rage.
    Yes, I've raged but without any sort of property damage.
    No / can't remember. I'm as calm as a cucumber even when the odds are stacked against me.

    The poll is expired.

    Broken controllers, holes in walls, excessive yelling and swearing.

    While I'm sure we would all like to consider ourselves here calm, cool, and collected that might not always hold true when playing a frustrating game. Maybe you're having a particularly frustrating day, and nothing is going your way. Maybe your teammates (and totally not you) are doing terrible and you're losing a multiplayer game because of it. Maybe you just died for the 50th time to a boss that did some unblockable...

    The worlds are virtual but the savings are real.

    Valve announces that from July 18th through to July 25th they will be "celebrating the most overachieving category of 'interactive gaming' there is: Virtual Reality!" As someone that owns an older VR headset, I would be inclined to agree with that assessment.

    Irish Poker Drinking Game Rules

    Irish poker is a very simple drinking game that can be played anywhere. A standard deck of cards and some opponents are all that are required.

    It's important to note that Irish poker and the drinking game are two completely different games.

    Irish poker is played for money, whereas the game we're discussing today is played for fun. It's not a good idea to play for money when drinking is present.
