The Evil Within

An exploding head is just about the last thing you’d expect to feel comforting, but somehow The Evil Within manages to convey a deeply nostalgic assurance with every skull you burst.

The Elder Scrolls Online

The Elder Scrolls Online isn’t Skyrim. It looks older, sounds older, and plays like it’s older than 2011’s award-winning RPG. It’s a different game from a different team, a team that would probably prefer its game to be judged as a separate entity. Zenimax Online’s Matt Firor has said on multiple occasions that TESO is…
