The Inpatient PlayStation VR Review

Posted on by
In 2015 Supermassive Games attempted, somewhat successfully, to change the way horror games are delivered. Until Dawn took a great cast of friends, put them into a typical horror scenario and blended exploration and interaction with a script and styling that merged film like quality with gameplay. It was met with positivity from both critics and gamers and led to Continue Reading...

A colossal reimagining. 2005 may go down as one of my most memorable and favourable years in gaming.
