WRC 9 versus Dirt Rally 2.0 on controller

Thoughts from an experienced sim racer

A legendary start

The first entry in the long-running Legend of Heroes franchise is a hugely satisfying and engaging story wrapped in solid game mechanics.

What's the deal with guitar effects these days?

The Typing of the Dead: Overkill Review

They're not zombies, they're mutants!
