    That's definitely true. RPS has perhaps the main source of perpetuating the term immersive sim, especially in the dark age of the late 2000s. Back then Bioshock was the only such game and System...

    The core design philosophy of immersive sims is "if you can think it, you can do it". You haven't really played Prey until you use the blast power, turn yourself into a coffee mug, launch yourself...

    I played through the enhanced edition of the original System Shock which turned out to be pretty amazing. Sure, the actual shooting shooting is a bit rubbish and the cyberspace portions are weird,...

    The main problem is that this spring is a ridiculously competitive season for new games. I bought Nier Automata and backed Torment and I have not played either. The price point is slightly beyond...

    Well, I gathered all the achievements in the 8-Bit Bayonetta and probably acquired carpal tunnel syndrome in the process. There's one achievement that requires you to die with exactly 5700 points...

    I've only played about an hour so far and I only made it to the first (I think) boss. I'm using my pure pyromancer with Onyx Greatsword, Dark Hand, Crystal Chime and the flame of course. This build...

    I'm halfway through the ice world and at this point the game gets very challenging. You have tight budgets and one poorly placed piece can make all the difference between collapse and 50% stress. ...

    Capcom is porting a whole bunch of their classic NES platformers to PC.
    Sure, it's not exactly Halo or Vanquish but these are pretty good games in their own right. Capcom were just about the only...

    I have to say I'm not a big fan of the hydraulics. In theory they should be easy enough to handle but in practice they're incredibly fiddly. Getting them to do your bidding is much more difficult...

    Poly Bridge is a strangely compelling game. It's a tough sell because you do nothing but building bridges. Sounds boring, right? Of course, under the surface hides a fairly complex physics puzzler....

    The Marine/Navy/OSA is really just the classic fighter/rogue/wizard trichotomy. Keep in mind that while the marine gets the best combat abilities right out of the gate, System Shock 2 is notorious...

    Miracles are even worse than you think they are. Once you crunch the numbers it becomes apparent that healing spells have drastically diminished returns. The expensive healing spells waste an...

    I can't recommend Precursors at all. It's barely functional and incredibly janky to play. More than the sum of its parts this is not.
