Review: Vanquish (PC)

Platinum might be a universally loved company, but not all of their games are. This is especially evident in the studio's era of licensed projects, with Korra operating as their most polarizing game to date, alongside of the contentiou...   read

Early Access Review: Dead Cells

You've probably played parts of Dead Cells before. Its DNA is familiar, a patchwork assembly of recognizable influences. There are echoes of Symphony of the Night and Super Metroid in the 2D action platformer. Rogue Legacy's persistent unlo...   read
