We're less than a month out from Capcom's Resident Evil remaster for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. I get the feeling it's going to do well for the company. Real well.

First look at Harebrained Schemes' return to Shadowrun and Kickstarter

Rust Cohle's GOTY games for 2014

Another year, another series of GOTY lists fueled by fanboyism and cognitive dissonance. We all know the AAA games get their fair share of nods and stick shakes. That's why I'm here to tell the world what my GOTY games are for 2014. Not that it matters; we're all living in our own linear perceptions, anyway. Show More Summary

Don't enable Valve and its world-ending ways. Read more...
