Trine developer's new game, Shadwen, sneaks onto PC and PS4 in May

Shadwen is a stealth game that is actually a stealth game. There's no other option. It doesn't subscribe to the Assassin's Creed-style mindset of "Now you've made a mess of things, time to clean it up." If the player is seen even...

People are flipping Quantum Break PC codes on eBay, effectively halving the price for everyone

One of Microsoft's selling points of Quantum Break for platform-agnostic people was that those who pre-ordered the game on Xbox One would get a bonus copy on Windows 10 PC. In an effort to bolster its PC gaming presence, Microsoft even...

Metroid Prime: Federation Force's site is open for business

The game no one asked for, Metroid Prime: Federation Force, now has a teaser site. What's that you say? It's a million years away so we don't need a teaser site? Well what if I told you that it's slated for a spring release window in t...

Grasshopper's weird survival game Let it Die still has a pulse

For the longest time, I didn't know what was going on with Let it Die. I still don't, to be completely frank, but the third-person survival-action title has resurfaced and it's looking much better. Ahead of a playable showing this month at...

Fallout: New Vegas, the superior Fallout game, gets a quick loot mod

Fallout 4 may not have been as impressive as past entries as far as the narrative goes, but it brought about a number of great quality-of-life changes. Of course, those can easily be modded into past games, which is just what Xilandro ...

 
Ratchet & Clank review
