    'Cos Capcom ain't sayin' much

    Resident Evil 7 releases in less than a week, but questions are still circling Capcom's latest like a bad smell. Can you play the game without PlayStation VR? Is there a co-op mode?

    Review Xenoraid

    Star wars

    As far as "classic video game genres" go, top-down space shooters are a bread-and-butter staple of the medium. While gems of the genre once ruled arcades and home-consoles alike, in modern times they've become dime-a-dozen, mostly relegated to portable devices and mobile phones. Within that landscape, any game of that type will have to do...

    Review 2064: Read Only Memories

    Beds are Turing

    2064: Read Only Memories is a game about artificial intelligence. Indeed, it's a game about both the interpersonal intricacies of machine sapience, and its broader societal implications. It's also a game about gentrification, and the way capitalism chews up and spits out disadvantaged people. It's a game about all of these things,...
