Horror games are the underappreciated children of the video gaming community. For such a niche genre, only a few hardcore fans only really binge up collecting these types of games on their shelves. Why, you ask? Well, from my understanding people don’t generally like being scared. They’d much rather watch someone else get scared on Youtube instead. If you’re like me, and you have an appreciation for horror, then why not take a look at some good horror games to play? Halloween is just right around the corner after all. What better way to celebrate the holiday than with some fear?…

I really get this hunch that Lara Croft somewhat gets off to putting her life frequently in danger. What normal person would get her foot crushed in between rocks and then keep going for more? I know masochism is a thing but our enigmatic heroine has far crossed that threshold of safe practice. Suppose it does wonders for Lara since nothing she ever goes through makes her look any less gorgeous. Perhaps all that adrenaline keeps one young? Playing through, Shadow of the Tomb Raider I was left relatively unimpressed. Some parts of the game were good, some parts of…

Phantom Doctrine is a turned based strategy set around the Cold War era. Wrapped around conspiracy and deception, it takes for those behind the scenes to uncover the truth.

Bear in mind, that this is a consequence heavy game. There’s no shame in learning in fifteen minutes what you can get in fifteen…

There’s always the fascination with artificial intelligence that interests fans of science fiction. Many questions can arise: how intelligent can the artificial mind be? Is it smarter than us? Does it have some philosophical belief? And more importantly, will it ever turn on its own creators? Detroit Become Human tackles this topic in the form of androids. Androids that are tools of humanity that can pretty much cover any convenience we need, from attending to everyday work to more personal matters. Apparently, for some unknown reason, androids have begun acting up against their programming. They begin showing independent behavior and…

They say imitation is the best form of flattery. The same thing can’t be said for plagiarism. There’s a difference between copying what someone does and putting their work forward as your own. I like to say I got my skills by looking at what other people do and trying to imitate it to see if it works for me, but I never took their works and claimed it as my own. There’s a difference between copying the style and copying the property. The former helps you improve; the latter just makes you a thief. In the world of journalism,…

If you’re a PlayStation 4 player, chances are you’re not exactly lucky when it comes to finding any type of Battle Royale game. Surprisingly, there’s not much selection when it comes to the genre on this console. You’re either playing Fortnite or Realm Royale. There are others such, but there’s not much to choose from. Unfortunately, PUBG isn’t available to PS4 players as of the moment. H1Z1 Battle Royale just might be the closest thing to PUBG you’ll get to play on the PS4. Don’t mistake it for a rip off clone or an inferior model though. It is its…
