RAGE 2 REVIEW

The gaming landscape has changed over the years and with that, gamers now demand more. With the help of id Software, Avalanche Sweden has finally done it. Pulling resources from games like DOOM and Mad Max, both studios have come together to make one of the most entertaining Open World/First Person Shooters I have ever played: Rage 2. Let's dive in….

An Incredibly Fun Adventure That Shouldn’t Work as Well as It Does

Detective Pikachu isn’t a perfect film, and has enough story/pacing stumbles to hold it back from something greater. Don’t let that hold you back, however, as there’s more than enough...
