Microsoft’s recent studio acquisitions have caused quite a stir within the gaming community. With Obsidian Entertainment and Double Fine Productions among the ever-expanding list of first-party game development studios, gamers fear that their future releases would be exclusive to the Xbox consoles and PC. Surprisingly, Xbox Games Studios (XGS)…

Plenty of exciting games have released or will release this year: Kingdom Hearts 3, Crash Team Racing, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Anodyne 2, Metro Exodus, Catherine, Borderlands 3, Pokemon Sword and Shield, Death Stranding, and of course, Truck Driver.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood Review-…

Sagebrush Review –…

Now, this was a gamble, I can assure you. It’s nothing to do with the developer, it’s due to the publisher pulling strings behind it. On Xbox One, Ratalaika Games’s name is synonymous with “cheap tat you can 1000g in an hour or two,” which honestly ruins the experience…
