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...

  • Mortal Kombat 1 is Another 100GB Title

    Mortal Kombat 1 is Another 100GB Title

    To think my friend in high school said an 80GB drive was more than enough.

    Mortal Kombat 1 was announced last week with a big, flashy CG trailer. Since then, the game started to appear on various storefronts, offering potential players a chance to pre-order one of the game's different editions.

    One of those storefronts is none other than Steam. As Steam is a PC-focused storefront it stands to reason that some system requirements for Mortal Kombat 1 were also shared, and...
