The Evil Within's DLC teaser really wants Leslie


Arriving in March
Feb 17
Well, Leslie. That's quite the predicament you've gotten yourself into, Leslie. We can't wait to see how you manage to get out of this one, Leslie. It's just a teaser, but at least we know that The Evil Within's first add-on... read

ZeniMax details The Elder Scrolls Online's upcoming pay-to-play store


The road to hell is paved with novelty skins
Feb 13
The latest MMO to go the pay-to-play route is The Elder Scrolls Online. Last month's announcement was a bit of a shocker to some, as going subscription free is an indicator of bad news for MMOs. However, ZeniMax is trying its... read

We're talkin' E3 already, huh?

February snow's still on the ground. All eyes are trained squarely on the rapidly impending GDC. Lo, Bethesda comes out of nowhere and wants to talk about E3! Los Angeles is still so many months away; just settle down. Oh, Be... read

The Evil Within's first DLC has the answers we're looking for


Well, some of them
Dec 11
Oh, right -- there's a Season Pass for The Evil Within. The thought of paying $19.99 for three DLC packs when the game itself was just on sale for nearly that price is unappealing, but that's the situation. Part one, The Assi... read

I'm a total sucker for the holiday season. Christmas cards, particularly those featuring creepy-ass uncanny-valley videogame men wearing festive sweaters, are no exception. In the hope that I'm not alone, I had to share this ... read

Based on everything I've heard about The Evil Within, I genuinely do not know if I'll like the game. It could be one of my favorites this year, but I also wouldn't be shocked if I ended up hating it, all the same. I'll contin... read

You're gonna lose your head over this The Evil Within glitch


Lost his head, but kept his cool
Oct 20
"This is insane," are some pretty appropriate famous last words, especially when you're inside a carnival of horrors. That should've been the case for this player, but he took a lickin' and kept on tickin'. That's perseverance at its finest. That thing was just weighing him down, anyway. read

I'd prefer a little more evil
I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Game... read feature

Well, it's finally here -- the day when The Evil Within is upon us at last, and we get to see how this thing turned out. Not us, mind you; Bethesda wasn't so quick to forward us a copy for review. But, I can assure you ... read

Nope, nope, nope! Go away smiley-masked dudes in The Evil Within


Not keen on most of the others either

The first 30 seconds of this new The Evil Within trailer declares that the game's enemies are "demented, vicious, and deadly." Most of them look all three parts, but the ones with the smiley-face masks have really locke... read

Max would date a woman who gets that hype on Taco Bell
In the third part of our ongoing investigative series on what it would be like if heavy metal pioneer Ronnie James Dio was, in fact, a mage in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In this installment, we forget more lyrics, and Max's girlfriend gets home from work, only to find a very special surprise waiting for her. Is it tacos? (Yes. That's exactly what it is.) read feature

Make sure to set aside a whole lot of hard drive space for The Evil Within

The Evil Within players might experience something slightly terrifying before ever booting up the game -- the amount of hard drive space that Shinji Mikami's latest creation takes up. Bethesda just released the system re... read

That raccoon is probably Dio's pet in the netherworld
Continuing our adventures through Skyrim; Max lays out the lengthy tale of what he did the day Dio died. Max's romp involved bottomless mimosas, a 40oz of malt liquor with a condom taped to it, and a deformed raccoon named 'Scary'. I don't really remember what I did that day. Probably listened to Dio. read feature

We've been down too long in the midnight sea
Max and I decided to start a playthrough of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the late Ronnie James Dio, the heavy metal legend who had a music video that kinda looks like Skyrim. There's only one problem; Max can't remember any Dio lyrics correctly. It's okay though; we had good beer and bad tacos. read feature
