Vigilante 8 Box Art

Vigilante 8

The game's storyline is built around an alternate history, in which there was a worldwide oil crisis in the 1970s and the U.S. was on the verge of an economic breakdown. Strikes, riots and crime were rampant, and all available law enforcement were brought to the cities leaving the outlands vulnerable. A foreign multinational oil consortium, Oil Monopoly Alliance Regime (OMAR), was determined to monopolize the world oil trade. The…
Red Dead Redemption 2 Box Art

Red Dead Redemption 2

I've always been excited to explore new worlds and dive into fantastic stories. When Red Dead Redemption 2 was released, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I had heard so much about the game's incredible graphics, intricate storytelling, and vast open world. I also LOVED the first game and the Undead Nightmare expansion. However, after spending several hours playing and reaching midway through Chapter 4, I've come…
Starfield Box Art

Starfield

Hey, so I’m really into creating outposts, especially with linking cargo and all that. Spent a good bit of time messing around with them. But, I’m starting to wonder… what’s the real benefit of having ‘em?

Alan Wake II Box Art

Alan Wake II

The character of Alan Wake from the popular video game franchise of the same name carries a certain duality, specifically in the delineation between his visual and auditory portrayals. This division is facilitated by two artists - while the character model, motion capture, and facial expressions are provided by Finnish actor Ilkka Villi, his voice, contrastingly, is lent by American actor Matthew Porretta. The Spotlight on Ilkka Villi Ilkka Villi,…

The Last of Us Part II: Remastered

The Last of Us Part II, a title that already etched its legacy in the gaming world on the PS4, returns with a remastered version for the PlayStation 5. The question that looms large is whether this remaster was necessary, given the original game's already impressive visuals and the fact that it's been nearly four years into the PS5's lifecycle without a brand-new title from Naughty Dog. However, the remastered…
Helldivers 2 Box Art

Helldivers 2

The latest major order in Helldivers 2 had players inject a large quantity of this mysterious "Dark Fluid" into the core of the planet Meridia. This planed contained the largest super colony of Termanids. Destroying it was said to put an end to the plague of bugs. The mission was a success and in place of the planet we now have what Super Earth are referring to as a black…
