Dead Space 3 wasn't originally designed for microtransactions

Spooky Adventures in Babysitting with 2Dark

Two things I'm very weary of in life: kids and developers mostly remembered for big hits from 25+ years ago. Look, if you've ever played Amy, you'll understand where I'm coming from. Even so, someone thought I was the ideal person to play 2...   read

Review: Resident Evil 7: Banned Footage Volume 1

Review: Resident Evil 7 biohazard

I hope Capcom's new London Resident Evil publicity stunt goes better than the last one

Many years ago to promote Resident Evil 5, Capcom scattered "body parts" across London. Now, if you can't already see the issues here given that millions of folks don't know what Resident Evil even is, evidently Capcom had to issue a statem...   read

If Resident Evil 7 were an action game, Capcom would have had to add 'superheroes fighting in space'
