    Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered

    A faithful creation of a third movie, but could have been much more

    Ghostbusters is one of the few franchises out there that doesn't get enough attention. With Ghostbusters 3 floating around for decades, most fans gave up hope completely. Then, what turned out to be the script for the th... Read Full Review

    I love Remedy's games and always have. From the first Max Payne all the way to Quantum Break there have been ups and downs, but Alan Wake still remains my favorite game from them. Control takes place in the same universe... Read Full Review
