It’s always fantastic when a sequel to a game you love is announced. A chance to relive the magic of the first game with a new story, new mechanics or perhaps even a new set of rules entirely. Whatever the reason may be…
Resident Evil Zero HD is going to be a tough game for me to talk about because, like the original PS1 release that brought the T-Virus to our living rooms, I’m not sure whether I love it or hate it.
My first experience with ARK: Survival Evolved was not a particularly pleasant one. Going in completely blind, not knowing what I was doing, I started punching trees and rocks until my fists bled dry. Then a velociraptor came over to inspect the commotion…
