Blood and Wine, the "final expansion" for The Witcher 3, is dropping on May 31, 2016. I can't get over how gosh-darn gorgeous the setting of Toussaint is (never mind that man brutally sliced up into little pieces). According to game direct...   read

This Witcher 3 Yennefer cosplay makes me want to play it again

Maria “Hannuki” Hanna really knows her cosplay, and this photo shoot of The Witcher 3's Yennefer is no exception. My favorite part is probably the set design -- it makes me feel like the Witcher academy actually exists. Now I ju...   read

There are exactly 100 professional reviews culled on the Bloodborne Metacritic page. Of that 100, 99 are "positive" and 1 is "mixed," a lowly 7/10, which I'd suggest is still positive. Oh, so nobody dislikes this game? When I started writin...   read
