Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus PC performance review

It is the best shooter of the year, but what is Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus’ PC performance like? Built on the current iteration of the notoriously difficult id Tech engine, it is easy to assume that a game so graphically intense is resource hungry and prone to slow down, crashes, and other system problems. We would not want you to leave things like these to chance, which is why we’ve put together this Wolfenstein …

King Oddball Review – Switch eShop

As ports of mobile games take up more and more online marketplace space, it’s easy – if not completely fair – to dismiss them as competition with first party or even console-specific indie titles. Viewed by some as shallow and disposable time killers at best, and at worst… well, you get the idea. The phenomenon that arguably started all this can be traced back all the way to a little physics-based puzzle game featuring a …

Just Dance 2018 Review – Switch

Just Dance is a series that likely needs no introduction; for the last nine years Ubisoft has regularly released a new version of its smash-hit franchise every October, helping the franchise’s sales to reach staggeringly high figures.

Gigabyte AB350N-Gaming WiFi Review – Tom’s Hardware

Lately, we’ve seen custom builds sporting huge AIO coolers, lots of fans, and enough RGB to keep significant others up at night.

AMD has placed this chipset right in the middle of its AM4 lineup where it supports both enthusiast-grade performance while shaving off enough features …

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Xbox One Review: A whirlwind of blood, emotion, and bullets

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is an exhilarating bloodbath that blends cathartic violence with moving storytelling, and the result is something truly special. Wolfenstein: The New Order launched in 2014 to some solid critical acclaim. Critics praised the game for its surprisingly emotional story, which added depth to the game’s hero, B.J. Blazkowicz. B.J., or, Terror Billy as he’s known in The New Colossus, helped popularize first-person shooters in the early 90s, and has since …

This Is The Police Review – Switch

Freeburg City is suffering. Far from a shining beacon of American civilisation, it bears closer resemblance to a wounded fighter on the ropes, reeling from hit after hit but too old and stubborn to give up entirely. The neon skyline of the ’80s is fading, giving way to a new decade painted in varying shades of grey. What liberty there is suffers constantly under the influence of powerful gangs, a corrupt city hall, and escalating …

See on the Xbox Store See on Steam Got to stop that mummy Back in the eighties and nineties, action and horror movies often received platforming videogame …

REVIEW: “Super Mario Odyssey” for Nintendo Switch

“Super Mario Odyssey” is excellent. Surprise! Hello! That is not a surprise!Nintendo It’s so good, in fact, that you should seriously consider buying a Nintendo Switch just to play it. Really! Here are just a few reasons why “Super Mario Odyssey” is so great: It feels brand new, despite starring a decades-old character. It looks far better than it should on the Switch, a console that’s not as powerful as its rivals. And it represents a …
