    Review: High on Life

    A fun little adventure that fuses crass humor with some DOOM-style combat.

    High on Life opens strong and just gets better the further into the game you go. It was a game that I remember being on the fence about for the longest time. In fact, I did not even remember submitting for a review copy, but I apparently did! So, it was with a fair bit of hesitation that I accepted the code, downloaded the game, and started the journey. Any worry I might have had was quickly laid to rest within...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
