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...

Review: Creeping Terror

When Paranormal Activity became an international blockbuster it ushered in a highly profitable era of B horror films. Since then cineplexes have been inundated with cheaply produced, easily marketable and quickly forgotten horror films. Blu...

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...

Freddy Krueger is up next for Dead by Daylight

I'm about eight hours into The Evil Within 2. I've just hit a point that, based off of my surroundings, looks to be an aesthetic departure from what's come before. It's jarring, but I'm eager to see what kind of mess former detective Sebast...

Ive never played Darkest Dungeon so should I go ahead and grab the complete edition on Switch or would the base version be preferable to a n00b like me? Question 2: Night in the Woods on Switch is it worth it at that price?
