Steam gamers meet the Candleman this month

There is an old adage that simply states that if you're going to do something you should do it properly. This would evidently apply to killing off players. Why just make a level hard when you can also make it deliberately dark? This is the definition of doing it properly,...

REVIEW / Warframe: Plains of Eidolon (PC)



It's hard to talk about or review Warframe in its current state without acknowledging its roots. On release, Warframe could easily be dismissed as passable sci-fi action shooter experience with the potential for greatness. Watch any of the early release gameplay videos and you can see some desperate need for...

Monster Hunter World beta - First impressions



Capcom's most self-explanatory title is back after a lengthy absence.
