Why we should celebrate extra options in games

Right – let me start this article by exposing my biases. Namely, one of the first games I played to the point of obsession was The Sims, and as everyone knows, The Sims is a highly modular game. Since the very beginning, the Sims seri...

Prototype Mansion is a grainy, goofy nod to Resident Evil

Prototype Mansion presents itself as a bargain-bin disc. Its box art isn't art at all, really, it's just more a callback to the kinds of games you'd find at a thrift store or yard sale; a plain plastic CD case, conspicuously missing any fro...

Resident Evil 7's Not a Hero still looks oddly underwhelming

The last we saw of Resident Evil 7's free DLC Not a Hero, I couldn't say it was getting me all pumped up. I'm mostly baffled that Capcom and now Sony are so willing to spoil a possible twist for a game that isn't even a year old. Let's just...

Review: Yomawari: Midnight Shadows

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows begins with a simple instruction: "Focus only on this screen. From this point on, do not divert your eyes from this screen." My initial response was something like, "Suuuuure, okay, game." Six hours later, I reali...
