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...

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...

    Skull and Bones Actually Received an ESRB Rating

    Ubisoft's high-seas adventure might finally be taking shape.

    Ubisoft announced Skull and Bones what feels like a lifetime ago at E3 2017. The game began development in 2013, starting first as a spin-off of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag before becoming its own stand-alone experience. Over these past nine years, Ubisoft restarted development several times, delayed the game indefinitely, and exceeded its budget several times over.

    Skull and Bones was expected to be released...

    Nintendo Direct Mini Announced for June 28

    This new Direct will focus on third-party partners.

    A new Nintendo Direct will air on Tuesday, June 28. This so-called Nintendo Direct Mini will focus on third-party titles, meaning Nintendo's first-party offerings won't be seen here. That means no Breath of the Wild 2 or whatever new Mario or Metroid the folks at Nintendo might be working on.

    This Partner Showcase is set to run for about 25 minutes. You will be able to catch all that third-party Nintendo Switch action...

    Epic Games Store Implements Unusual Rating System

    You can review games but only when Epic says you can.

    User scores are a real mixed bag. You have people that will fairly rate games based on their honest opinions. These sorts are rather rare. You have users that will rate on an "all or nothing" scale where only the lowest and highest numbers are viable options to them. You have those that will rate a game highly because it's a meme. Then you have those that will participate in review bombing of a title because of a variety...

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection may soon have microtransactions added into it some eight years after it was first released. 343 Industries publicly revealed that they are considering adding in microtransactions into the game that can be purchased via "Spartan Points" which can, you guessed it, be purchased with real world money.

    At present, cosmetic items can be purchased...

    Ubisoft failed to reach their financial targets.

    Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot will voluntarily take a $327,000 (USD) pay cut for the upcoming year. Ubisoft says that this "is a personal decision" by Guillemot and was done voluntarily as Ubisoft "had not reached the financial targets that it had publicly communicated to the markets."

    Guillemot waived his "annual variable compensation," which is just a bonus on top of his usual salary that differs...

  • Sonic Creator Confirms Old Rumor - Michael Jackson Composed Music for Sonic the Hedgehog 3

    The decades old rumor/worst kept secret has finally been officially confirmed.

    Sonic the Hedgehog creator Yuji Naka took to Twitter to officially confirm a rumor that has been kicking around for literal decades now: Michael Jackson composed some of the music for the 1994 release of Sonic the Hedgehog 3. It makes a lot more sense now as to why some of the Sonic 3 tracks in the recently released Sonic Origins package had to be changed.

    It's long been a theory that Jackson...

    This Midsommar Event is a limited time affair, though neither Torn Banner Studios nor Tripwire mentioned when exactly it will end. I suppose if you are interested in playing during this event, you should just go play it as soon as possible because...

    Team Fortress 2 Receives Substantial Exploit Fix Update

    No, this update doesn't directly tackle the bot problem.

    An update for Team Fortress 2 was released last night for the 15-year-old game. While this update does not tackle the game's horrific bot problem directly, it does fix a number of bugs and exploits. It's one of the larger patches released for the game in quite some time now.

    The update fixes some exploits related to being able to use sv_cheats on secure servers. That seems like a pretty important thing to fix. It...

  • 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....
