“A Way Out” Review

“A Way Out” Review

Whether or not you believe Josuf Fares purposely brought the attention that came with him to The Game Awards, his latest project A Way Out is definitely one that turned heads. A Way Out is an interesting take on both local and online co-op. It’s also one that barely scratches the surface on what a game like this can do.

“Far Cry 5” Review

The Far Cry series has always been known for its over-the-top violence, eccentric characters, and beautiful landscapes.
