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...

    Epic Games Not Done with Store Exclusives

    The exclusives have slowed but only because Epic is focusing on snagging bigger fish.

    If you believed that the period of Epic Games Store exclusives was a thing of the past, you would apparently be wrong. Timed-exclusive Epic Games Store releases were slowing down enough that it would be easy to believe that Epic finally decided to stop doing one of the most hated things to hit PC gaming in years.

    Sadly, that isn't the case.

    Resident Evil 4's Rain to be Fixed in Day One Patch

    The rain effects seen in recent trailers will be altered with a patch.

    Capcom says they are readying a day one patch for the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake that will, among other things, tone back the jarring rain effects seen in recently gameplay footage.

    Review: The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition

    An easy purchase for new players but maybe a hard sell for existing owners.

    It was not until I reinstalled the original PC release of The Outer Worlds that I was able to really appreciate the improvements made with the release of The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition. Initially, I believed that this looked exactly like the same game that I had played on PC back in late 2019 when it first came out.

    The release shifts from April to May.

    Though Hogwarts Legacy has been out for a little while now on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S, the last-gen release was nowhere to be seen.

    How to Fix Both Nvidia's and AMD's Broken Driver Updates

    Both companies just released new GPU drivers that could potentially harm your system.

    This hasn't been a good week for those of you who use video cards from either Nvidia or AMD. Chances are, that's probably all of you reading this. Both companies released new video drivers that could possibly cause either increased sustained CPU usage after exiting a game or, in the case of AMD, destroying your Windows install.

    2023 has been a banger year for new game releases.

    2023 has already been an absolutely incredible year when it comes to new game releases. In 2023 alone, Metacritic lists 25 game releases that have amassed an average score of 90 or higher. The previous best year, again according to Metacritic, was back in 2011.

    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:...
