Band Together in Terror: The Outlast Trials Review

The Outlast Trials proves that survival horror can be more fun with friends.

The Outlast Trials is a four-player PvE game taking place in the Cold War era. The game's opening moments and lore paint a gruesome and wicked scene that will be familiar to series veterans but disquieting to those new to the Outlast universe. Players work their way through a series of experiments, each of which plays out on various large maps like a police station, a courthouse, a carnival, and more. The g...

    Hidden mines that could cause future mods to behave erratically if cracked.

While Bethesda has recently stated they will officially add DLSS to Starfield in the future, it has been up to the community to implement this highly sought after feature.

    One of those community members goes by the name of PureDark and it is PureDark that put out...

    The CMA says they have "limited residual concerns" over the new deal.

    In April 2023, the UK's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) blocked Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard. Their major hang-up were over concerns about cloud gaming of all things.
