Review: Metro Exodus

[Update: Since this review was published, I’ve encountered instances of game breaking save bugs that can spawn the player back into locations where they are “locked” in place. This effectively kills your autosave file. Thi...

Warface is jumping on the battle royale craze

Remember Warface? When Crytek launched the game a few years ago in the Russian market, I remember the company saying they were done with triple-A development and that free-to-play was the future. I'm not sure if that still rings true for th...

Review: Redeemer

Revenge plots are overused in our media. I’m sure off the top of your head, you could come up with about 15-20 films that have a character going on a vengeance streak for the wrongs done against them. You could probably also name a ha...

Steam's summer sale is apparently coming June 11

On a dark, humid night, you hear it. Slowly, it creeps towards you – clink. Clink. Clink. It sounds inhuman. You close your eyes, hoping the thing won’t find you… but it does. It always does. You can feel its ice cold bre...

amiibo is apparently compatible with Moscow's subway system

[Update: Our Russian friends in the comments are reporting that the people in the video are saying that the Samus Amiibo doesn't work with the Moscow Subway. I guess in Soviet Russia, green means stop and red means go.] Like this trailer f...

Russia brands Sims 4 18+ because of same-sex relationships

This trailer for Warside doesn't let up for a second
