More STALKER 2 Info Drops

S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl ( and Call of Pripyat) have been gaining ground for years as PC cult-classics. The following was enough to inspire the developer, GSC Game World to announce a sequel last year.

I Definitely Don’t Need It, And Yet…

I like to think that I’m fairly resistant to the video game hype train these days. I’ve been in the gaming world for decades at this point, so I should have some sort of a resistance built up to it all by now. In practice though, I’m not so sure that’s true. I don’t pre-order…

Killzone Website is Retired

Sony and Guerilla Games have retired Killzone.com. If you go there right now, all you’ll find is a short notice explaining what services are still active for the most recent Killzone games: Killzone Mercenary and Killzone: Shadowfall.

Video game Christmas events come in all kinds of flavors. Some are sweet and savory, dripping in fun and Christmas cheer. Others though…others are bland and chalky, putting forth the barest effort and only marginally acknowledging that there’s something to celebrate.

Among Us is Coming To Xbox! Is PS Next?

Listmas 2020: Three Excellent Bonuses

You know, I’ve really been feeling like an old gamer lately. While there are still plenty of great games coming out every year, I still can’t help but notice more and more of the conventions I grew up falling away in favor of increasing monetization. These days, I’m finding myself wondering whether or not proper…
