This sets in motion a chain of events that lead to New Dawn, set 17 years into the post-apocalyptic life of the same region. A new threat has emerged and taken control of the region, and once again it is up to us to ...

The Division 2 Looks to Build on Success

With the upcoming release of The Division 2, many people are looking back and trying to remember what happened to its predecessor. Don’t we all remember having a ton of fun running around an open-world console shooter, grabbing loot and taking down bad guys?

While The Division was certainly ...

Travis Strikes Again: NMH, in all of its raunchiness and straight-up adults-only dialogue, on the family-oriented Nintendo Switch? It just didn’t make sense. It still doesn’t. But you know what, that ...

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Review

Released last December by developer The Bearded Ladies Consulting and publisher Funcom, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a turn-based tactical RPG that utilizes elements of real-time stealth and an intriguing storyline to bring an experience that can only be described as a next-level XCOM.
