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...

  • Call of Duty: Vanguard Install Size to be Up to 50% Smaller than Previous Releases

    Well, at least at launch.

    If you have installed and played a Call of Duty title released in the past few years, you probably noticed that your PC or console has suddenly run out of room for, well, most anything else. That's because the install sizes for the past few Call of Duty titles have been absolutely massive.

    Let's not forget that there was a time where Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was no longer able to fit on a 250GB drive. Thankfully, that install size has come...

    Hey, so... DICE and EA put out a new trailer for Battlefield 2042 today and, uh, it's kind of bad. It's almost as if the marketing teams saw what Activision does with Call of Duty trailers in terms of tone and audience, and went, "yes, this is brilliant."
