'Betrayer' Review: Black, White, And Sporadically Red

Last year, a handful of former Monolith developers decided to do what so many other industry veterans are doing — including Zombie Studios (Daylight), The Astronauts (Ethan Carter), and Tangentlemen (Daedalus), among others — and leave the ridiculous world of AAA video game development to… Read More

'Dark Souls II' Review: It Hurts So Good

It was critically acclaimed for its unforgiving nature, beautifully realized world and innovative multiplayer. It should have become a cult hit;… Read More
