When the frame rate is so bad, it makes you ill

I hadn't really heard of Lichdom: Battlemage until our recent post about its new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports -- they're $49.99 a piece, or bizarrely enough you could just get the PC version for $1.99 in a bundle -- and now here it is ...

Meet Valkyria: Azure Revolution's Five Grave Sinners

While I am still somewhat bummer that the Valkyria Chronicles spinoff, Valkyria: Azure Revolution, is more action-RPG than strategy RPG, well, there is no "but" or "while." I'm still bummed. A combination of an update of Sega's official gam...

The Witcher 3's Blood & Wine DLC looks dreamy

I know people who are anticipating the next Witcher 3 expansion, Blood & Wine, more than just about anything else on the docket for this year (which is exactly how I am with Souls add-ons, so, I get it). Sometimes, it's easy to forget h...

 
Dark Souls III tips
Call me bad, but I actually found Dark Souls III a little harder than Dark Souls II and Bloodborne at first blush. Maybe I was just rusty, but my first few hours with the game were brutal. It took me more tries than I'd care ...   read

Wow, Runescape still exists and just got a graphics overhaul

My brief experience with Runescape must have been more than 10 years ago. A friend played, I guess, and was playing. Maybe he was showing it to me in the hopes that I, too, would play; with him, no less! Instead, what I did was take over t...
