Bethesda reveals Fallout 76 ahead of E3, few further details

After Bethesda appeared to tease a new entry in the Fallout series yesterday, the internet flew into speculation mode. What was it? There’s no way it could be Fallout 5, it’s too soon for that. The general consensus was that Bethesda was going to announce a Switch port of Fallout 4 in the same manner as they’d announced the original game. And then, late last night, the proverbial vault opened once more to reveal a teaser for Fallout 76. Continue reading Bethesda reveals Fallout 76 ahead of E3, few further details

Games Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Switch, 2017): Return of the King

Reliving the opening moments of Skyrim always feels a lot like going home. The music, atmosphere and landscapes always bring me right back to my first moments with the game, when I first discovered how monumental and incredible the game truly was.

Games Review: The Evil Within 2 (PS4, 2017): Great survival horror that fights through its flaws

Video Games Review: Prey: (PS4, 2017) In Space, Nobody Can Hear You

There’s nothing quite like the fear and paranoia that Prey induces the moment you step into a room of the vast Talos I station. The tension I felt while playing Prey was palpable, thanks in no small part to the edge-of-your-seat atmosphere the game builds. Through the combination of a haunting score, brilliant level design and stellar voice-work, Prey hooks you in and keeps you riveted for the duration of the game. The design of the mimics is frankly spectacular, and while alien enemies in games have largely been overdone, Prey goes out of its way to make the Typhon a formidable and unique force.
