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...

    Can complicated gaming jargon put people off?

    The online casino and gaming world can be something of a minefield. If you are used to playing games in a traditional setting such as a casino then visiting some more 'modern' websites then it may become confusing. You might have been a big gamer in previous eras and want to get back involved but are put off by the language used by developers like Microsoft and Sony.

    Let's try to help you understand the jargon. We'll then look at the dangers of potentially over complicating...

    The Tomorrow Children to Make Surprise Return

    The long-forgotten PS4 exclusive is set to make a comeback.

    In September 2016, a unique and stylized game for the PlayStation 4 was released. It was called The Tomorrow Children, it offered both a paid and free-to-play option, and it had a very short life. The game lasted just 13 months before the servers were turned off in November 2017. Five years later, it looks like The Tomorrow Children is ready to return.

    The Scott concert took place on November 5 in NRG Park. According to CNN, at least eight people ranging in age from 14 to 27 have died, with several others injured. Eyewitness reports say that crowds surged...
