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...

    Battlefield 2042 Coming to PlayStation Plus in March

    The game is good now. Trust me.

    Battlefield 2042 is in a place where I would consider the game to be good. Great? Eh, maybe a little bit of a stretch. It's been an absolute blast to play over the past few months thanks to DICE's continued efforts to right the wrong that was the game's initial launch.

    It should then be good news to PlayStation Plus subscribers to learn that Battlefield 2042 can be added to their accounts at no extra cost. This is for both PlayStation 4...

    Valve says this is just one step in the ongoing fight against cheating.

On the official Dota 2 blog, Valve revealed that they have recently permanently banned over 40,000 accounts that were caught using third-party software to cheat. Valve used the cheaters' access to information "that wasn't visible during normal gameplay" to confirm their suspicions and dish out some...

    Capcom says that the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake will get PlayStation VR2 support added as free DLC. This news was shared by the Japanese Resident Evil Twitter account where Capcom says that development has begun on the VR mode.

    With VR development only starting now at Capcom, it seems highly unlikely that this will release alongside the base game's March 24th release date. Resident Evil...
