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...

    Official Formula 1 Game Shuts Down, Makes Worthless NFTs Even More Worthless

    NFTs were already worthless to begin with, am I right?

    An official Formula 1 racing game "powered" by NFTs and crypto, closed down last month. The game was F1 Delta Time and its closure spells bad news for those foolish enough to have spent even a penny on the ongoing scam that are NFTs.

    See, F1 Delta Time was one of the first officially licensed NFT games out in the wild. It closed down last month, specifically it closed on March 16, just one day after it was...

    Ghost Recon Breakpoint Will No Longer Receive New Content

    I'm sure dozens of people are upset by this.

    Ubisoft announced that they will no longer release any new content for Ghost Recon Breakpoint. This reveal comes several months after the release of the last piece of content for the game, Operation Motherland, which came out on November 2, 2021.

    Really, today's announcement was probably just a confirmation of what the remaining fans of the game already kind of figured out by now. Ghost Recon Breakpoint did receive about two...
