Quake Champions Goes Free-to-Play

After a successful free-to-play trial period earlier this summer, Bethesda’s Quake Champions has permanently adopted a free-to-play model.

Doom Review

DOOM is truly unique from other first-person shooters due to its ultra fast-paced gameplay and loads of extreme gore.

Rarely are players offered a less “hardcore” adventure in which to sail the seven seas in heated conflict. Well,...

Cally’s Trials Review

Walking into Cally’s Trials, I had few expectations. It looked like a typical platformer, with a standard 8-bit art style, and decent platforming. I figured the game would be either really easy or extremely difficult, and something would quickly steer it away from being fun. Well boy, was I wrong. Cally’s Trials is practically flawless, and...
