Classified as a young snob for the way he prepares coffee, Edgar still resorts to a V60 dripper for preparing his favourite morning beverage. High on caffeine, Edgar spends his leisure time playing visual novels, but give him the chance and he'll talk your ears off about Resident Evil and Devil May Cry. He refuses to play mobile games and doesn't understand the appeal of Pokemon.
I think it's safe to say that Red Dead Redemption impressed everyone when it released back in 2010. It was nominated for numerous accolades, and won many as well - including Game of the Year. Nowadays, it's widely regarded as one of the best games of all time. But its zombie-infested follow-up Undead Nightmare deserves as much if not more praise for being one of the best DLCs ever made. It expanded a narrative already rich in lore and added a ton of new content.
We're at the dawn of next-gen consoles launching in just a few weeks. Whether or not Series X|S and PlayStation 5 surpass these numbers remains in limbo. But for now, we're travelling back, way back to October 2000, to take a look at the launch of the PlayStation 2 in the West, its launch lineup and the impact it left on the video game industry.
With Microsoft's pending acquisition of Bethesda Softworks, the future of the latter's IPs remains in limbo. Will new entries to games like Doom, Fallout and The Elder Scrolls come out exclusively on the Series X|S and PC? Only time will tell, but for now, it seems rather likely. In the meantime, players on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Stadia can purchase and download The Ancient Gods - Part One of the highly-anticipated DLC for Doom Eternal.
Halloween is fast approaching and for us horror fans that means lots of candy and rewatching classic horror movies like Evil Dead and From Dusk Till Dawn.

Today, Remothered: Broken Porcelain arrives just in time for Halloween and is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch and PC.
Do you know those games that rely on a single element of attraction? It might be a unique art style, a novel gameplay mechanic or even high difficulty. Hydrophobia is that game. It isn't a pretty game and it doesn't have the best narrative in the world. It's not necessarily fun or accessible to play either, but it totally dominates when it comes to water. Equip your rebreather because in this article we'll take a look at Hydrophobia and water. Lots of water.
Where do gangsters go when they die? They don't go to heaven where the angels fly. It's the year of remakes with the likes of Resident Evil 3 and Final Fantasy VII garnering great success earlier.

Welcome to the jungle, we've got fun and games. Back in 2007, even the most powerful PCs struggled to run Crysis on medium settings. It was the developer's way of future-proofing the game's visuals, making it aesthetically relevant for years to come. This spawned the prominent "Can it run Crysis?" meme. Following several delays, Crysis Remastered is currently out for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch and PC. That's right, even your Switch can run Crysis now.
I've been lucky enough to play every mainline entry in the series and sink hundreds of hours into most. And while the franchise has had its ups and downs, there's always something magical about booting up a new GTA game. Each entry abandons poor ideas, learns from them and continually develops upon the good ones. In this list, we take a close look at each mainline Grand Theft Auto entry, find out what makes it good and rank them in order, from the worst to the best.
*Dramatic movie trailer voice* From the developer of The Coma: Cutting Class and Vambrace: Cold Soul comes a new kind of horror experience.

Devespresso's second instalment in The Coma franchise - The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters - is currently available for download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch.

Wasteland is a legendary role-playing series which dates all the way back to 1988. It served as an inspiration to the original Fallout games and both series share the same developers. A remastered version of the original Wasteland released earlier this year and, while it has aged poorly, Wasteland Remastered still delivers a fun experience. After an unfortunate delay, the third instalment in the series -- Wasteland 3 -- is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Sports is a competitive genre. We've got the yearly instalments of FIFA, NBA and NHL bringing the big guns. And then, on top of that, a simulator based on most popular sports known to man. Even skateboarding is making a well-deserved comeback. But what about those of us who crave for something in the vein of FIFA Street? Maximum Games has the answer. Street Power Football brings the Beautiful Game to the streets across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch and PC.
If you've played video games long enough, then you've probably heard of terms like "Nintendo Hard" or "NES Hard". The original Battletoads released in 1991 is one of the prime reasons for the existence of these terms. Some of us probably still suffer from PTSD after trying to complete the punishing Turbo Tunnel level. Well, prepare to relive those childhood memories as the new Battletoads is now available across Xbox One, Game Pass, Play Anywhere and Windows PC.
Whether you celebrate them or not, most of us know about these all-important festivities. Christmas, Easter, Oktoberfest, Thanksgiving and, most importantly, the Jeff Goldblum Day. But there are other oddball celebrations, like May the 4th celebrating the Star Wars Day or November 7th paying tribute to the Mass Effect series. It just so happens that there's also a day celebrating underwear - the National Underwear Day on August 5th. To celebrate National Underwear Day, this article is comprised of weird and kinky games from the land of the rising sun. Enjoy!
Believe it or not, but skateboarding games are making a comeback. First of all, Session has hit Game Preview on Xbox One. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 is set for a September 2020 release and the long-awaited sequel in the Skate series - Skate 4 - is in development. Is there anything else an avid skateboarding fan could wish for? Why yes, yes there is - a game to fill in the gaps. That game's none other than Skater XL which is now available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with a Nintendo Switch release planned later this year.
Devolver Digital has become synonymous with unique gameplay experiences and has likely published some of your favourite games in recent years. From high-octane action games like Hotline Miami and My Friend Pedro to dungeon-crawlers like Enter the Gungeon. And don't you forget about the most awesome video game name in human history -- Genital Jousting. Available across Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, Switch and PC, Devolver and Phobia Game Studio's 2D horror game Carrion is the most recent addition to the publisher's portfolio.
Available now on Xbox, Game Pass and PC - a console-exclusive, mind you - Party Animals sees up to eight online players (local split-screen is also available) face off in a variety of crazy fighting matches.
Bluey: The Videogame is the first ever video game to feature the little pup, as Outright Games and BBC Studios come together for release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Party Animals is, in a word, promising. Whilst the launch version of this incredibly cute and colourful physics-based brawler is missing some key features that will boost replayability, the foundations are there for an excellent foray into the genre.
What starts off as a seemingly impossible challenge quickly becomes one of the best POWGI games for logical thinking. Word Web by POWGI not only ramps the difficulty up, but also the satisfaction of completing a puzzle.
Ad Infinitum is disturbing, confusing and horrific, much like the WWI setting. It tackles some interesting themes and tells a story that is hard to get a handle on. But the gameplay is solid, as are the visuals and brilliant soundtrack.
Overall I enjoyed my time playing HUMANKIND and would recommend it to both strategy game veterans and beginners. It can be extremely enjoyable however it is held back by some bugs and half-baked gameplay mechanics.
