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.

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. The month of October also brings an array of new horror games, one of them being a sequel to 2017's Remothered: Tormented Fathers. Today, Remothered: Broken Porcelain arrives just in time for Halloween and is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch and PC.
Drawing inspiration from Slavic folklore, Yaga certainly delivers in terms of its narrative and lore. But in terms of combat and environments, it feels underwhelming. Levels get repetitive quickly and the combat system leaves a lot of room for improvement.
Back in the early 2000s, Prince of Persia was the franchise to beat. Parkour-like traversal, intricate puzzles and intense combat: what's not to like? Earning flattering review scores and numerous awards, The Sands of Time established itself as the prime action-adventure game. But how does one follow up something so flawless? Two words: Warrior Within.
Even a whole decade later, many (my humble self included) consider the second entry in the series as the best. But is it really that good? Let's go back in time and find out what makes Assassin's Creed 2 so memorable all these years - and sequels - later.
Due to its long-standing history with the platform, Civilization is among those series commonly associated with the PC ecosystem. Developed by Sid Meier, the first game released way back in 1991. And since then, the franchise garnered great success with over 10 mainline instalments and multiple spin-offs. Today, courtesy of 2K, the latest entry in the series - Civilization VI - is finally available on Xbox One and PS4.
I still recall driving across the glittering streets of Bayview, listening to the excellent music and taking in the sights. And also, spending hours obsessively tuning my car in-between races. Fasten your seatbelts because, in this nostalgic article, we ignore the many failures that came after it and take a look at fast cars and spicy senoritas in Need for Speed: Underground 2.
In Yaga, you play as Ivan, a one-handed blacksmith on an arduous quest for glory and a new wife. Guiding Ivan, you'll complete quests within a beautiful, procedurally-generated 2D world and make difficult decisions.

It's available for purchase and download right now across all major platforms: Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. As well as handheld and mobile platforms: Nintendo's Switch, PS Vita (^_^), Android and iOS
Need for Speed: Heat hit early access on November 5th for subscribers of Origin Access and EA Access. But today, the most recent entry in the series is finally available on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC for everyone to enjoy.
If there's anything we learned over the years, it's that no game is complete without the word "definitive" in the title. And hence, continuing the tradition, Square Enix releases Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.
Are you still undecided on what to play during the All Hallow's Eve? In that case, look no further than Remothered: Tormented Fathers on the Xbox One, PS4 or Nintendo Switch, particularly now it comes in physical form.
It's that time of the year again - it's the All Hallows' Eve. It's time to carve pumpkin heads, jump-scare unsuspecting friends and decide which horror game to play during the adult hours. Some of us will return to the classics, like Resident Evil and Silent Hill; others might prefer something modern, like Dead Space or The Evil Within.
To assist your decision-making process, this list showcases 5 of the scariest monsters which, in one way or another, stalk the protagonist throughout the campaign. And to keep things more varied, I only considered one monster per franchise because otherwise, this list would consist solely of monsters from Silent Hill games.
Following the incredible success of Resident Evil 2, Capcom is once again enjoying time in the spotlight. But it's not mandatory to put all eggs in one basket. While Dino Crisis never boasted the same reputation, it still maintains a cult following. And with new consoles on the horizon, it's high time to revisit old beloved franchises.
