Amnesia: The Bunker Review (PC)

Frictional Games plays it safe. Perhaps a little too safe.

Frictional Games is known for crafting some of the most memorable horror game experiences over the past 15 years. They began with the Prenumbra series, a trio of titles that gave us our first taste of Frictional's penchant for blending survival horror with physics-based environmental puzzles. The studio then saw a spike in popularity with their next release, Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Amnesia: The Dark Descent expanded upon the...
 

After Us Review (PS5)

After Us offers a glimpse of our future and a warning of things to come.

A gaming experience where you engage in thoughtful introspection, wordless encounters, and some platforming across Earth's many diverse locations to undo the devastation caused by global warming sounds like an intriguing idea on paper. Its execution in After Us, however, leaves quite a bit to be desired. Some awkward platforming, poor combat, and performance woes will ultimately leave you feeling a little less...
 

Redfall is Arkane's Worst Game Ever

It's also the worst "AAA" developed title in recent memory.

It was a struggle to finish Redfall. It was an absolute struggle thanks to performance issues, technical deficiencies, crashes, broken A.I., and uninspired quest design. It was the antithesis of fun and I pushed myself to complete the game out of pure spite.

Prior to playing Redfall, I saw Arkane as a studio that could do no wrong when it comes to their output. Dark Messiah of Might and Magic in 2006...

Watch YouTube, take notes, chat, and more.

Valve just released a new beta update for Steam that includes a wealth of new features, updated old features, and some under the hood changes.

Right now, you can opt into the new beta for the Steam client that makes some drastic changes to the In-Game Overlay. Now, you...
 

UK Blocks Microsoft Activision Merger

The CMA claims the deal would harm cloud gaming.

Cloud gaming. Cloud gaming is the reason why the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) in the UK voted to block the $69 billion deal that would see Microsoft taking over Activision Blizzard.

The decision didn't come down to concerns over Call of Duty exclusivity or anything that would make some measure of sense. No, it came down to the CMA being concerned that the deal would "undermine new and innovative" competition...

    Bungie Disables Heavy Grenade Launchers After Players Discover Damage Bug

    Heavy grenade launchers are off the menu for this weekend's raid.

    Just yesterday, Bungie released Season of Plunder for Destiny 2. The space pirate themed season has been a fair bit of fun thus far, but it's also had its fair share of issues right from the get-go.

    Before it was even obtainable, Bungie noted that they have disabled the new Titan exotic armor, Point-Contract Cannon Brace. No specific reason for it being disabled was provided. There's also no way for any...

    Swing through a neon-soaked city on Neptune.

    Earlier, Bungie showed off the first look at the next Destiny 2 expansion, Lightfall. The new expansion will be out on February 28, 2023 and will be the "penultimate chapter of Destiny 2's Light and Darkness saga." This expansion will obviously continue the overarching story that started back with the original Destiny.

    Plus, the first details on what to expect in Season 2.

    DICE released a new "Development Update" video today (seen below) for Battlefield 2042. During the video, the team talked ever so briefly about what was coming in Season 2 for the game, which is presumably expected to begin in early September after Season 1 comes to an end.

    The studio says that Specialists will be put into traditional Battlefield Classes in the future. The Specialists will also have a grittier...

    DICE to Bring Back Classes in Battlefield 2042 in Season 3

    Four classes, each with restricted loadouts to return to the franchise.

    Among the many shortcomings in Battlefield 2042, one in particular has stood out. No, I'm not talking about the bugs, nor the map design, nor the lack of maps, nor the lack of weapons, nor <insert anything from the laundry list of items here>. I am, of course, talking about the Specialists.

    Players have lamented the removal of the Battlefield staple of having distinct classes. With the Specialist...

    New Saints Row is Apparently a Broken Mess

    The reviews are in and critics agree: Yikes!

    If you were debating on picking up the new Saints Row game when it comes out on August 23, 2022 you should probably not get it. Just don't buy it. In fact, I'd probably wait maybe a year or so before picking it up. Not only will the game more than likely be out on Steam at that point for you PC users, but it will probably also be a lot less buggy. It will probably also be available for a big discount.

  • What June 2023 Games Releases Will You Buy?
    by Shawn Zipay
    It's a fairly stacked month.

    May and into June is usually when the mid-year lull begins for new game releases. Yet here we are in June 2023 and there are some big games either already out or coming out in the weeks ahead.

    There are several games coming out this month, many of which you might call "bangers" that you might just happen to have your eye on. This month's poll is simple and probably a retread of a poll (or several) that have been done in the past....
