    Terminal Velocity Gets a New Lease on Life

    Time to party like it's 1995.

    In 1995, a little 360-degree combat flight shooter came out called Terminal Velocity. That game was developed by Terminal Reality and published by 3D Realms, and wow was it ever a great time playing that on school computers back in the day.

    The Day Before Delayed Again for Another Dubious Reason

    Just another excuse from developer Fntastic.

    The Day Before is (allegedly) an upcoming Unreal Engine 5 powered open-world zombie survival MMO. It's (allegedly) in development by Fntastic, a studio with a less than stellar reputation. Still, The Day Before ended up becoming one of Steam's most wanted titles for a while after its initial reveal and the small handful of subsequent media releases.

    The Day Before has already been delayed at least once, with the reason being...

    Critical Consensus: Forspoken

    I'm somewhere that's not what I would call Earth, I'm seeing freakin' dragons, and oh yeah I'm in a kind of bad game.

    The reviews for Forspoken started to come out today and wow, they are not good. They aren't exactly terrible, but for a game that has been sitting in the spotlight for so long, the scores this game is receiving cannot be what Square Enix was hoping for. Forspoken sits at a 69% average on OpenCritic, and what critics have been saying are not painting a very pretty picture...

    Don't worry, nobody knows what the other ending is just yet.

    Ahead of the January 27th launch of the Dead Space remake comes word that the game will feature more than one ending. This is wholly unlike the original game that gave you just one ending and that was that.

    by Shawn Zipay
    An announcement is expected to take place soon.

    For a little while now, rumors suggested that Xbox will begin to offer many of their first-party titles on competing hardware platforms.

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
