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...

    A changelog that rivals the length of a CVS Pharmacy receipt.

    Battlefield 2042 is in a sad state, even following the release of Update #2 just last week. We all knew that Update #3 was coming and that it would be far more substantial than Update #2 was. Today, DICE released the changelog for Battlefield 2042 Update #3 and it is a long one.

    What Are the Best CS:GO Teams in the World?

    What is the mark of a truly successful computer game? Most units sold? Biggest grossing franchise? Most dedicated fan following?

    However, the advent of eSports has taken gaming to a whole new level. With tournaments devoted exclusively to revealing the best CS:GO...

    In the newly updated FAQ page for their upcoming Steam Deck, Valve says that they are not interested in developers making Steam Deck exclusive titles.
