Origins_Lineup_001

Overwatch has been the target of another round of criticism this week. This time, rather than accusations of sexism (or misogyny as some people incorrectly label it) Blizzard has been accused of “cultural appropriation.” Though some of the other Overwatch Skins have been labelled offensive too, the specific skin under scrutiny this time is the Devi skin for the character ...

Horror Games, Atmosphere & Modern Sensibilities

Amnesia03

I don’t get how people can find horror games with unlimited saves/save anywhere systems frightening in the least. It’s similar to having an unlimited rewind button. If you can essentially rewind time, what suspense is left? How do your actions have any meaning? If mistakes become unpunishable, why bother having anything that allows mistakes in the first place?

Full disclosure, I am a Sony fanboy in recovery. There was a time I believed that Sony could literally do no wrong when it came to the video game industry.
