Review: Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has become an incredibly divisive game since its release in 2017. While it brought some hefty and frenetic gunplay with excellent presentation, the actual gameplay aspects took a backseat to a poorly written...

Deathloop is the new action game from the Dishonored studio

Arkane Studios' next game isn't another Dishonored, it's a new property called Deathloop. It should still feel familiar, though. Bethesda announced Deathloop at its E3 press conference with a stylish cinematic trailer (embedded above)...

Arkane is taking a break from the Dishonored series

We can expect Arkane Studios to continue making immersive games that prioritize "deep world building and environmental storytelling," but Dishonored? The series is on hiatus. Speaking to VG247 at QuakeCon, lead designer Ricardo Bare said th...

Arkane uses gross red eyes to tease Prey DLC

It's Prey Day, and you shouldn't feel bad if you weren't aware. That's because it's seemingly the first ever Prey Day, as it's an occasion that Bethesda now celebrates because March 15, 2032 is when Morgan Yu woke up at the very beginning o...

Review: Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

Billie Lurk is tired. By the time she takes Dishonored: Death of the Outsider's lead role, the street urchin-turned-assassin has fought harder and lost more than most. Lurk's actions have shaken the world's foundation; with the single flick...

New Prey update targets screen-tearing and stuttering on PS4

Prey has been sitting comfortably on my to-play list. I'm confident I'll like it, but I'm also certain I don't have much patience for weird technical woes and pesky bugs. Arkane has been working to get the game to a better place, and today'...

Prey was going to let players fly wherever they wanted

When we reviewed Prey, we praised (ha!) its open structure. Arkane created an environment where it's possible to do nearly anything and to go nearly anywhere. The Gloo Cannon is an essential tool to this end, as it allows for free-form trav...

Review: Prey

The heart of Prey isn't in an obvious place. It isn't in its scientific moral quandary or its inky aliens or its ever-escalating plot. It isn't in its retconned 1960s history that serves to justify this research center or in its numero...

Review in Progress: Prey

Prey has me shook. I've seen plenty of aliens and they're all intimidating, but at least they're an obvious threat. It's the ones I can't see that have me paranoid, inching closer to a desk that could very well be just a regular desk. ...
