If you’ve been reading my articles, you may have some idea about how much I love the old school Resident Evil games.

The Witcher 3’s downside is no Cyberpunk 2077 for the next few years

The Witcher 3 is great. At least, I assume it’s great. I haven’t played it or anything, but everyone tells me it’s great, and I have no reason to question them.

Kickstarter Roundup: Light Fall, Guardians of the Forest and Umbra

Yooka-Laylee and Bloodstained have stolen the show when it comes to Kickstarter projects. Talented developers splintered off from the big names they worked for to dabble in genres that are rare nowadays. However, I think it’s not fair to give these games so much focus when other, smaller projects are turning to Kickstarter to crowdsource more »

Watch a war of the words in Last Word

Do you know what game I just can’t get over? Twelve Tiles’ Last Word. It’s this fantastic investigative adventure with RPG elements that I keep coming back to.

CD Projekt Red’s new The Witcher 3 patch addresses graphics issues

You may have noticed that The Witcher 3 is a fantastic RPG, perhaps by being woken by the midnight hiss of its personal hype train. You may also have heard that it’s not perfect: many disgruntled users are crying graphical discrepancy, centering on an alleged visual downgrade from the version of the game that was promoted in 2013.

World of Warcraft is hosting a selfie contest

I don’t know how all of you feel, dear readers, but when Blizzard announced the addition of their S.E.L.F.I.E. camera to World of Warcraft back in January 2015, I thought it was ridiculously corny. The item, which is awarded from a level 100 Garrison mission, allows players to literally take selfies of their characters while more »
