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...

My new daily driver.

We are once again delving into the world of gaming headsets, this time with a spotlight shining brightly on Nacon's RIG 900 MAX HX.

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...

    Mid-Gen Xbox Series Refreshes Coming in 2024 Say Court Documents

    This includes a digital-only Xbox Series X refresh.

    If you were asleep last night or playing a game, as I was, you may have missed it when a waterfall of leaked court documents made their way online. Those court documents are from the ongoing court battle between the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Microsoft about the latter's bid to acquire Activision Blizzard. There has been a lot leaked from these documents, so expect to read more as the day goes on.

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?

    Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?

    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
    Other (describe below)

    The poll is expired.

    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...

    Payday 3 Early Access Begins

    If you paid more, you can play right now.

    Those who bought the Silver or Gold editions of Payday 3 are able to start playing right now, a whole three days ahead of its "official" release on September 21. This Early Access release of Payday 3 does grant full access to the game ahead of the 21st. Meaning that if you and three buddies all bought the more expensive versions of the game, you could be heisting right this second.

    There is a rather big jump in price...

    Let's just take a little glimpse at some of the games that came out this year that scored a 90 or higher. We had Baldur's Gate 3 in August, The Legend of Zelda:...
