After Us Review (PS5)

After Us offers a glimpse of our future and a warning of things to come.

A gaming experience where you engage in thoughtful introspection, wordless encounters, and some platforming across Earth's many diverse locations to undo the devastation caused by global warming sounds like an intriguing idea on paper. Its execution in After Us, however, leaves quite a bit to be desired. Some awkward platforming, poor combat, and performance woes will ultimately leave you feeling a little less...

Redfall is Arkane's Worst Game Ever

It's also the worst "AAA" developed title in recent memory.

It was a struggle to finish Redfall. It was an absolute struggle thanks to performance issues, technical deficiencies, crashes, broken A.I., and uninspired quest design. It was the antithesis of fun and I pushed myself to complete the game out of pure spite.

Prior to playing Redfall, I saw Arkane as a studio that could do no wrong when it comes to their output. Dark Messiah of Might and Magic in 2006...

UK Blocks Microsoft Activision Merger

The CMA claims the deal would harm cloud gaming.

Cloud gaming. Cloud gaming is the reason why the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) in the UK voted to block the $69 billion deal that would see Microsoft taking over Activision Blizzard.

The decision didn't come down to concerns over Call of Duty exclusivity or anything that would make some measure of sense. No, it came down to the CMA being concerned that the deal would "undermine new and innovative" competition...

    New Hitman 2 Video Series Shows "How to Hitman"

    The first entry in a new HITMAN 2 video series was released today courtesy of WBIE and IO Interactive. The series, appropriately called "How to Hitman," begins with today's video, "Immersion."

  • The MP5 Finally Returns to Counter-Strike

    The MP5 Finally Returns to Counter-Strike

    Long ago, in a Counter-Strike far, far away there existed the MP5. Once Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released, the weapon was struck down by the MP7. Fear spread far and wide that we would never again see the return of the little SMG that could.

    Worry not dear players, for the MP5 is indeed back in Counter-Strike and maybe better than ever? I don't really know, I haven't tried it out yet and even if I did, I haven't played Counter-Strike in years so it might actually...

    It's called Daemonical and as you may have figured, it's a game of kill or be killed as a group of humans tries to complete a ritual all the while being hunted by a demon. It's a tale as old as time.
