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...

    Everything we know so far about F1 22

    The latest F1 season is well underway and it’s been an exciting year with Red Bull and Ferrari fighting for both championships. It would be a mistake to write off Mercedes this early too — we’re only a few races into this season, and it looks like they’ve made a lot of progress with their car and are ready to start fighting at the front again. If watching the action on the track isn’t enough, then perhaps the new F1 game from EA will fulfill your needs.
