One year later, the Sons of Anarchy game may have been a scam

Back in August 2015 it came to my attention that the episodic Sons of Anarchy game, released six months prior, had virtually no updates regarding a follow-up -- despite the fact that a Season Pass was sold upfront. The developer and publish...   read

New PS4 update for The Witness might help with motion sickness

It sure does feel odd to boot up The Witness again. I had intended to continue solving optional puzzles after earning the platinum Trophy, albeit at a much laxer, much more sane pace, but ended up stopping completely. Why go back now? A Pla...   read

Unofficial Kickstarter for Life is Strange sequel canceled in record time

Well, there's that. Much like the fabled Star Wars fangame, another one bites the dust. While most unofficial projects are usually worked on in secret and then torrented into the world (even if only in demo form), some go public immediately...   read

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter makes a great case for VR when it's not disorienting

I have yet to finish The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, which I picked up during its launch back in 2014, so I figured hopping into the brand new Oculus Rift version would be a good way to accomplish that. Barring some discomfort, it managed to...   read

 
 
Walking Dead review
  Watch Video Telltale was never going to top the Walking Dead series proper with their three part Michonne series. It was always presented as a sort of tertiary tale, a gaiden that followed in the footsteps of the star, partially tied to the comic series. The first episode reflected that spinoff mentality. So does the second, for that matter, to a greater extent.   read

Review: Adr1ft

  Watch Video I'm of two minds when it comes to modern walking simulators. On one hand, they satisfy the craving I have for obtuse, old-school adventure games, a genre that basically does not exist anymore. On the other, they tend to be a ...   read

Yep, Chase sure does look like a new Hotel Dusk
