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...

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...

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Surpasses 1.8 Million Concurrent Players

    Eleven years later, CS:GO is more popular than ever.

    There have already been several monumental weekends just in 2023 for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The game, which turns 11 later this year, is seeing more popularity than ever before.

    Maybe it's the hype surrounding the Paris Major 2023 or for IEM Dallas 2023 later this month. Maybe it's because Valve launched the Paris 2023 Viewer Pass and autograph capsules this week. Maybe it's because people are getting...

    It was like "finding a needle in a haystack."

    The story of this bug and how Respawn arrived at the fix is quite interesting. Thankfully for all of us, they shared the entire story...

    The Head of Xbox assumes "full responsibility."

The Head of Xbox himself says that he takes "full responsibility" for that game and the everything that's wrong with it.

    Spencer's noble self-sacrifice here was shared during a lengthy interview on the Kinda Funny...
