    ✔️ Completed  TheGamesDB integration broken?

    Just tried to add a new page in the Survival Horror forum, it gave an API error. This might just be because something is down temporarily.. or it may be broken on this side. Just reporting!

    RE6 is just the worst.. isn't it?

    I've not really thought about RE6 for a good while.. until recently, a co-worker told me that their favourite game series is Resident Evil. And I'm like.. Oo! LET'S TALK! He's played all of the more recent games in the series, and played RE5 with his partner.. they thoroughly enjoyed it. And...

    Quake 2 has had a remaster

    If you've owned the original Quake 2 game on Steam, you already own it. It just got updated with the new version automatically. It's not a remake, but it's been modernised and all the different versions of Quake 2 have been transformed into one cohesive package. So all of the mission packs and...

    Baldur's Gate 3

    This is like the hottest thing right now, and its been a long time coming. I know it doesn't fit our.. theme, but I've been playing a lot of it. It's crazy just how many iterations of play the developers thought of when constructing this game. It must be one of the most complex, 'background...

    Vampire Survivors

    Vampire Survivors is a top-down, 2D roguelite with a really simple gameplay loop. Avoid getting killed by waves and waves of enemies while your character automatically attacks. You earn experience by collecting gems from your fallen enemies and you use those to earn and upgrade your abilities...

    Does anyone here use Reddit? They're in the spotlight at the moment because (long story short) they're going to start charging a fee for using their API if your script uses more than 100 API requests. So basically anything that uses Reddit data to function.. will have to be paid for now. Unless...

    The Worst game ever

    The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has been in the gaming news a lot lately, being cited as one of the worst games of all time. Redfall is also another game which was recently released - which came out in a state so bad that the developer was forced to apologise for it. I don't think its fair to say...

    Do you like hot weather?

    It seems like people generally enjoy clear skies and boiling heat... It is associated with 'good' weather. I personally hate it when its hot. I find it really hard to stay cool but when its the other way around, its a lot easier to stay warm when its cold. So yeah... I prefer cold weather...

    System Shock is Shockingly Good

    This is not a review.. more of an overview and impression. System Shock was originally released in 1994 and was one of the most ambitious 3D games of its time. It has been labelled as a first person shooter, immersive simulator and a role playing game. While it wasn't a huge commercial...

    Metal Gear Solid Δ

    Anyone else excited for this? Snake Eater was always one of my favourites in the series, and I actually had the most fun playing the 3DS version out of all of em. It's a full remake of MGS3 which was recently announced. Metal Gear Solid Delta. They're also doing a package of the existing...

    Getting Old

    Is this a heavy subject? Nah... it's just something we all end up doing eventually! It sucks getting old! Since I hit 30 my visits to the doctor have (no lie) multiplied by 10x. I used to pride myself on my general fitness and immune system... Now that all seems to have gone out the window...

    ⭐ Review  DREDGE

    I heard about this game from word of mouth (can you even believe it?). It was presented to me as a quaint, bite-sized RPG where you take control of a boat, fish and then make money from doing so by selling said fish. After a while, the game opens up and you'll be doing quests (named Pursuits)...

    This is a great game that can be played in brief periods. It presents itself as a inoffensive, charming game where you are a fisherman, and you find yourself on a coastal town having crashed your ship in the night. The towns mayor helps you settle in to your new surroundings and you're sent on...

    Eresys is the second title by independent Greek developer Ares Dragonis and is self-published by Dragonis Games. The game is a co-operative horror game in which a team of up to four cultists must wander through a spooky world inspired by the cosmic horror works of H.P. Lovecraft. This game was...

    PC users, what keyboard?

    Beleive it or not, people are becoming more... 'keyboard conscious' these days. A lot of people can't just settle for whatever random keyboard landed on their desk. In fact, some will hunt down specific keyboard layout bases, add their own specific switches and then their own keycaps.. and...

    Those bottles in Resident Evil Remake...

    Have you ever thought.. what does it say on the labels, under where it says Acid Nitric? It's sweet.. and strange. It's not fully legible but it seems like one of the artists complimenting their girlfriend and sister. Can someone decipher it? I think its "Sanada, I have a ---- (lionheart...

    Resident Evil has ruined other games because….

    This is just for fun! What features in Resident Evil games have been so ingrained into your gaming habits that they may just disappoint you when you try them in other games and they don’t do what you expect…? Here’s my examples: - I shoot all birds and critters.. hoping they leave a pickup...
