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: RIG 900 MAX HX Wireless Headset

My new daily driver.

We are once again delving into the world of gaming headsets, this time with a spotlight shining brightly on Nacon's RIG 900 MAX HX. Priced at $249.99 (USD), the 900 MAX HX aims to be a more premium and feature-filled offering than the RIG 600 PRO HS we recently reviewed. Featuring the same dual-wireless connectivity as the 600 PROs, the 900 MAX HX sets itself apart thanks to Dolby Personalized audio support with Dolby Atmos 3D, plus a charging base station, a more...

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...

  • Project Leonardo Announced for PlayStation 5 - A Customizable Accessibility Controller Kit

    Sony joins Microsoft in offering players with disabilities a way to play games more easily.

  • EA Unable to Recover 60% of Corrupt Madden NFL Franchise Saves

    EA Unable to Recover 60% of Corrupt Madden NFL Franchise Saves

    Looks like EA really fumbled this one.

    There was a period of about 22 hours where, if you logged into Madden NFL 23, there was a chance your Connected Franchise Mode saves became permanently corrupted. The 22-hour long span took place from December 28 through December 29. Those dates happened to come just after EA told players they were good to log in and play. Oops.

    Now, the good news here is that if you logged into the game during this time there is a 40% chance that...

    Steam Users Chose Some Interesting Winners for The Steam Awards 2022

    Do you agree or disagree with each winner?

    The Steam community has spoken and the winners of The Steam Awards for 2022 have been selected. Like all of the nominees, the winners were picked strictly by the Steam community. Surely, the Steam users have a good head about them and wouldn't pick something like the actually terrible VR version of Hitman 3 for VR Game of the Year, right?

    Yeah, about that.

    Games to Look Forward to in 2023

    I won't lie. I fully expected there to be far more news to post today (January 2, 2023) given that it's the start of the week and the holidays are "technically" over. What I failed to realize is that a ton of people are still off work due to the New Year falling on a Sunday. Thus, here I am opting to do a little write-up about what games I'm looking forward to in 2023 instead of sitting around doing nothing. Who knows, maybe you're looking forward to these games as well. If I missed some games ...

    1 Button Games that are Fun

    One-button games have a kind of mystical quality. Given how straightforward their controls are, you would have assumed that these games wouldn't provide much in the way of gameplay. What can you really accomplish with only one button, after all. Nevertheless, despite this significant restriction, one button games may feature remarkably intricate game mechanics (just look at the fully-fledged RPG in this list). Additionally, certain one-button games, like Poto and Cabenga, may really provide players...

In addition, the games on this list are games that were released in 2022 unless otherwise stated for some specific reason. As I am the only one posting content on the site, this is as much a "Total Gaming Network Game of the Year" as it is my personal Game of the Year selection. ...

    by Shawn Zipay
    2023 has been a banger year for new game releases.

    2023 has already been an absolutely incredible year when it comes to new game releases. In 2023 alone, Metacritic lists 25 game releases that have amassed an average score of 90 or higher. The previous best year, again according to Metacritic, was back in 2011.

    Let's just take a little glimpse at some of the games that came out this year that scored a 90 or higher. We had Baldur's Gate 3 in August, The Legend of Zelda:...
