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...

    EA Fires Over 200 Apex Legends QA Testers via Zoom

    Of all the ways to let someone go, doing it via a Zoom call and after a night shift shouldn't be one of them.

    On February 28, EA tried to quietly lay off over 200 quality assurance (QA) testers from their Baton Rouge office. These QA testers were primarily working on the Respawn Entertainment developed battle royale game Apex Legends. The initial reporting about these layoffs came to light via Kotaku, who says that the layoffs happened via a Zoom call.

    Final Fantasy 16 is Probably Coming to PC but Not for a Very Long Time

    So is this PC version that "doesn't exist" actually announced now or...?

    Earlier this year, Final Fantasy 16 producer Naoki "Yoshi-P" Yoshida said that if you wanted to play the new Square Enix developed RPG you should just "buy a PlayStation 5." He sure seemed to indicate at that time that a PC release of the game just wasn't in the cards yet.

    Of course, this is assuming you ignore the initial trailer reveal of Final Fantasy 16 that included...

    To deliver you what is yours. Destined death.

    A day many of us have been waiting for is here: FromSoftware finally announced the first expansion for Elden Ring. The rather low-key announcement came via Twitter where the developer merely confirmed that the DLC is currently in development and that it's called Shadow of the Erdtree.

    They offered no other details outside of the name and the "yeah, we're working on it" announcement. There is no release date, but we...
