This snuck right up on me, but the first DLC episode for Wolfenstein II is now available for download on all platforms. Season pass owners should already have the content, but if you want to purchase this separately it will set you back $9....

Review: Skyrim (Switch)

Skyrim was released in 2011. Six years later (almost to the day), it's still relevant. So relevant in fact that we thought it was worth a revisit with our review of the Special Edition, and worth covering yet again on Switch. Such is the po...

Review in Progress: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
