Review: Resident Evil 7: Banned Footage Volume 1

It hasn't even been a month since I reviewed Resident Evil 7, a game that I thought was solidly okay (that's a joke, I'm the jerk who gave it a 10), and a big ol' chunk of DLC came out last week. It's called Banned Footage: Volume 1&nb...   read

That promised high-resolution texture pack for Fallout 4 is here, and even though it's been a week since we learned this was on the way, I'm still reeling over Bethesda's beefy storage requirement (58GB!). Doable? Sure. Wild? I'd say so. Th...   read

The PS4 is really kicking off 2017 with some damn good exclusives. If you count the VR version of Resident Evil 7 (which you should, as it's fantastic), it also has Gravity Rush 2, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Yakuza 0...   read

Review: Candleman

Ten seconds. That's all you get in Candleman -- ten seconds of light to navigate an environment of near-darkness. It's a fascinating concept, one that turns a rudimentary platformer into an always-tense affair. It's maybe the most inte...   read
