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. 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.
I've been on an emotional rollercoaster while playing Home Sweet Home; I was terrified during the first five minutes, somewhat disappointed after encountering Belle for the first time, and screamed like a wuss (multiple times) throughout the game's later chapters.
Before experiencing Dark Souls, I was not aware of having a predisposition towards masochism, or that I was one for saying: "Yes, mistress". It was a revelation. From Software's action-RPG successfully re-introduced punishingly difficult gameplay into mainstream media, which by itself gave life to a brand new sub-genre: Souls-like. Since then, many developers have attempted to replicate the game's success to a varying degree and Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is the latest indie addition to the flock.
Anodyne may easily come across as yet another Zelda clone, and while it does share certain similarities with Nintendo's legendary franchise - particularly in terms of aesthetics and overall gameplay mechanics - it manages to provide a uniquely enthralling experience, thanks to its obscure narrative and atmospheric musical score.
It probably goes without saying that Speed Brawl is a gorgeous game; it features charming Victorian-era characters and environments, along with sleek animations and an eye-popping colour palette. It’s almost like watching a cartoon from the nineties. Even the menus look stylish, but there is a lot more to the game than just appealing visuals.
Developed by EXE-CREATE and published by KEMCO, Revenant Dogma is a Japanese role-playing game in its most traditional sense; something not seen often within the Xbox ecosystem. After being available on the mobile platforms for several years, it has recently been released on the Xbox One, but can a mobile game deliver an adequate experience on Microsoft’s flagship console?
Currently in Early Access on PC, Merge Games have announced the full release date for their teeny tiny open-world multiplayer survival game - Smalland: Survive the Wilds. And as they do so, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 versions are confirmed.
