You can expect Red Dead Redemption to be at the top of nearly every "game of the year" list over the next few weeks, but it would seem that TIME magazine, of all places, is going against the grain. The revered publication has... read
The audio work in Alan Wake is fantastic. It's probably one of the best aspects of the game. If you set up a good surround system it sounds like you're actually lost in a real forest. It sounds that way because that's where t... read
