Review: Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is one of the PS2 classics I remember well enough to know I played it, but have let almost every other detail escape from my mind. Eurocom and THQ's Zelda-like set in ancient Egypt was a fun attempt at a new...

Review: De Blob (PC)

Man, the Wii had a ton of great games, didn't it? For every piece of shovelware there was a hidden gem like Zack & Wiki or Wario Land Shake It that fell by the wayside in favor of some of the console's huge hits. But alas, som...

Darksiders Warmastered Edition is a free upgrade on PC

Admittedly, I just wanted to write a blurb about Darksiders Warmastered Edition's launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One to rekindle the life-affirming goof that is #darksiders2. Someone had to! But there's another, arguably better reaso...
