#Role-Playing Games


Vampyr preview
  Watch Video At a cursory glance, Vampyr, developer Dontnod Entertainment's third game, could not be any more different from Life is Strange. One's an action role-playing game set in early 1900s London; the other is an exploration- and na...   read

Dark Souls III
The saga of the poise stat in Dark Souls III was pretty amazing. First, fans had no idea what it did, and much to their chagrin, From Software maintained a cheeky "it's a secret!" stance on it. Eventually though someone ...   read
