    The farming/life-sim genre is an increasingly crowded field these days. There is no shortage of games that offer the experience of building a small farm, raising crops and livestock, and making friends and relationships along the way. But every so often, a game in this genre comes along that really turns things on their head, taking well-worn tropes and expectations and making them feel fresh and new. Sakuna: of Rice and Ruin is such a game. It combines an in-depth rice-farming simulation with e

    December 2020: Major Game Releases For PS5/PS4, Xbox Series X/One, Nintendo Switch, And PC
    December is officially here, which means we're quickly coming up on the end of 2020. That doesn't mean there are no new games to look forward to before the year wraps up, however. Although this month is fairly light in terms of new releases, there are still some notable games coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC, Switch, and last-gen consoles over the next few weeks.Undoubtedly the biggest release is CD Projekt Red's highly anticipated (and long-delayed) Cyberpunk 2077, but it's not the only notab

  • Twin Mirror Review

    Twin Mirror Review
    With Twin Mirror, Dontnod abandons the episodic model it has experimented with since 2015's Life is Strange in favor of a six-hour standalone release. The result is a focused crime thriller with some great character work. However, Twin Mirror's exploration of its story and mechanics suffers somewhat from its brevity, relative to Dontnod’s recent work. It's longer than an episode of Dontnod's serialized games but still shorter than what it needed to be to explore characters with depth and t

The event, which played like a souped-up Disneyland ride, was a lot of fun, but it only added to the random jumble of themes that makes up the Fortnite universe.The event saw the entire lobby, along with Iron Man, Galactus, and other heroes, get sucked into what's called the "Zero Point" after Galactus tried to absorb it.
