Why Dark Souls III Needs an Easy Mode [Just Kidding]


Sorry. I’m just kidding. Dark Souls absolutely does not need an easy mode. You guys just need to, as the meme goes, git gud. No, really. This isn’t some impossible task.

Steam Controller Review – Round 2

Steam Controller Review

Until Dawn Screenshot

Developer: Supermassive Games Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Platform: PS4 It seems like it’s every day that we get a game that comes out screaming that player choice matters. So it’s rare that we get one where that’s actually the case. Until Dawn is a third-person horror game that feels like a marathon-length horror movie. Think Heavy Rain meets Betrayal at ...
