Watch: The video game theme parks that would be immediately shut down

Shogun: Total War and the art of a great video game story

Do you remember the first time a video game told you a story? By that I don't mean the first time you played a video game that had a story.

Samorost 3 audio recordings are more ridiculous than Samorost 3
