Actual murder on the dancefloor
The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos is the game's second and final expansion. Just like Peril on Gorgon, it's another solid adventure that takes you to a whole new location. This time around, the crew of the Unreliable find themselves on the Grand Colonial — essentially a massive hotel complex that orbits the...
Welcome back, Captain
Bloody corporations, eh? They've only gone and done it again! Peril on Gorgon is The Outer Worlds' first expansion, and all told, it's a solid excursion.

As such, we were cautious when we first caught wind [Not that kind – Ed]...
How do you possibly review a game like Fallout: New Vegas? Isn't it our promise as a publication to see all of a game before we deliver a verdict? In New Vegas' case, that's impossible
It really is — there is no way we could possibly see everything the game has to offer and still meet deadlines and cover other games. New Vegas is like a vacuum, it...
