Review: Mafia III

As I played Mafia III, I found myself thinking more and more about Assassin's Creed. Not the Assassin's Creed of today -- a series overrun with options and bloat -- but the original game. The trigger for my recollection is because Mafi...   read

This glitch makes all of ReCore's toughest challenges simple, and it requires visiting a dungeon that's not even supposed to be there

ReCore's optional dungeons are the purest parts of the game. They're self-contained challenges that put an emphasis on platforming, combat, or exploration. These are the three core tenets of the whole game, but these dungeons' lean nat...   read

Review in Progress: Mafia III

Mafia III begins with protagonist Lincoln Clay playing a part in a grand heist. It's not something we haven't seen before in video games, but it still feels kind of unexpected. This game's predecessor, Mafia II, spent far too much time...   read

Fuck up the KKK in Mafia 3

A lot of games have let us dispense of nazis with hot-leaded-justice, but what about groups that have since perpetuated the Nazi's occult-lunacy-derived racial superiority? Sure, the KKK existed before the Nazis, but Mafia 3 is set in 1968...   read
