Review: The Red Strings Club

Brandeis is plummeting towards the ground. It's silent as he falls; the city he worked so hard to save has gone to sleep, blissfully unaware that the hacker will meet his end face-down on the pavement. Though his life will be over shortly, ...

18 indie games to look forward to in 2018

First of all, these are only games with an announced 2018 release date. None of this "when it's ready" stuff (I'm looking at you, Into the Breach). In fact, if all of these games don't release in 2018...I'll play through Troll and I ag...

Review: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

Street Fighter V had a major identity crisis at launch. Capcom wanted to get it out quick so they could make the call for EVO 2016, and it broke records. A certain kind of record though, as the actual sales figures limped across internal ta...

Matthew Razak's personal picks for the best movies of 2017

[Ed. Note: We do awards a bit different at Flixist. Most of our writers do not get early screenings or award screeners of movies, which means it isn't easy to see some of the films that only get limited releases in December for many of us. ...

Meltdown, Spectre, cybersecurity and you

You've probably heard the terms "Meltdown" and "Spectre" a lot lately. Over the past few days the two security vulnerabilities have been everywhere in the news. Hell, you're reading about them on a video game website right now, that's usual...

The best games of 2017 you didn't play

This has become one of my favorite write-ups each year. You know that game that you love, but others don't even seem to know what it is? You rant and rave about how intricate the design is, or how beautiful the game looks, but no one s...

Review: Life is Strange: Before the Storm: Hell is Empty
