    White Knight Chronicles is a long-awaited RPG for the PS3 from Level 5. Having been announced around 5 years ago, some wondered if it would ever come out, and even then the question of American availability came into que... Read Full Review

    Divinity II: Ego Draconis

    Not a very good game but still oddly compelling.

    Divinity II certainly has an interesting premise. The idea is to create and customize your own character, down to the very last detail, and then take him on a very elaborate story involving Dragons and how to kill them. ... Read Full Review

    Left 4 Dead 2

    The new best horror franchise gets its latest addition.

    "Left 4 Dead is the new best horror franchise" is an odd thing to say, especially for me. After playing a metric ton of the first game, I was satisfied with it just being another zombie game that hadn't really reached it... Read Full Review
