Eldest Souls Review

Perhaps no modern game is more blunt about its influences than Eldest Souls. Despite having a name that would make a copyright lawyer sweat, this overtly FromSoftware-inspired action game manages to establish its own blend of addictive, brutal combat and gorgeous art direction that rivals its 2D and 3D peers.

Final Fantasy 14 Changes Sage Class Icon Because of Trypophobia Concerns

Square Enix has changed the Sage job icon in Final Fantasy XIV after learning that some players expressed concerns about trypophobia.

GTA Online’s Fake Car Culture Is the Real Thing

“The nods of recognition, the pointing, the fanboys passing out in ecstasy. Witnessing the big power ZR350 revving up to tear a hole through an underground parking lot never gets old. And when you burn these tires out, they’ll fight to see who gets to breathe in your polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons – because this much clout is seriously intoxicating.”

So goes the sales pitch for the Annis ZR350, a 30-year-old, two-door sports car that has never existed and never will – because...
