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...

This Witcher 3 Yennefer cosplay makes me want to play it again

Maria “Hannuki” Hanna really knows her cosplay, and this photo shoot of The Witcher 3's Yennefer is no exception. My favorite part is probably the set design -- it makes me feel like the Witcher academy actually exists. Now I ju...

The Witcher 3 patch 1.12 smashes Hearts of Stone bugs

There's a lot to peruse in this 1.12 patch-notes-filled The Witcher 3 PDF. Much of it has to do with the new-ish Hearts of Stone expansion and fixing bugs therein, but rest assured that this patch isn't 15gb (a much more reasonable 1.4gb) a...

There are exactly 100 professional reviews culled on the Bloodborne Metacritic page. Of that 100, 99 are "positive" and 1 is "mixed," a lowly 7/10, which I'd suggest is still positive. Oh, so nobody dislikes this game? When I...   read

Use a money-making exploit in Witcher 3? Then a taxman's comin' after you
