The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild feels very much alive, and brings what has classically been a very linear, restrictive adventure series into the open-world genre in a fantastic way. It stays true to many of the series’ tropes, borrowing heavily from established […]

Those with wrinkles on their forehead and grey hairs on their chins might remember a game called Descent, released in 1995 on PlayStation and PC. Developed by Parallax Software, it involved flying spaceships with six-degrees-of-freedom through a mine overrun by robots and blasting the living […]
