Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire lands on

That damn wampa! Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire gave me the creeps as a kid, and I can't help but wonder if it would still have that same effect today running on modern hardware. Probably not, judging from these high-resolution screenshot...   read

The original Corpse Party is coming to 3DS and Steam

Corpse Party came to the PSP at a great moment for me. I was relatively new at my college, and dreadfully hopeless at social interaction. Instead of trying to fix that I played through the horrific visual novel in an isolated spot on the se...   read

Night Dive's Turok re-release hits PC this week

I tried to play Turok once, and only once, back when I was still in grade school. My friend and I rented the game for N64 because 1) the box art was cool and 2) he was into violent games. But shortly after getting back to my house, I got...   read

Tacky old porn sim fluffed for PC re-release

I dislike this art sooo much. It doesn't look like an anime at all. But seriously, at least aim for Heavy Metal, right? This is 1998. Leisure Suit Larry did a better job 10 years earlier on noticeably more restricted tech. Hell, Softporn II...   read

Review: System Shock: Enhanced Edition

I've never played the original System Shock. I understand how important it was to the RPG and FPS genres as a whole, but I was five years old when it came out, which is slightly too young to appreciate it. I've played the second in the seri...   read

Review: STASIS

Generally, I tend to avoid both adventure and horror games, which makes my attraction to STASIS a bit perplexing, since it's both of these things. I've been invested in the game's development for years, anticipating its release. A big part ...   read

Turok and Turok 2 are being re-released for PC

Remember when Acclaim offered $10,000 to parents who named their kid "Turok?" I still get a good laugh out of that whenever I think of the series. Beyond that legacy they were actually fun little shooters, and now both Turok and Turok ...   read
