<i>Oh...Sir!! The Insult Simulator</i> Review

Oh…Sir!! The Insult Simulator Review

While playing Oh...Sir!! The Insult Simulator, I feel like I can understand what the game is going for.

<i>Horizon: Zero Dawn</i>  Review

Horizon: Zero Dawn Review

Many games make the mistake of confusing innovation with improvement, thinking that new concepts automatically equal a better experience. Horizon: Zero Dawn on the other hand shows that you don't have to reinvent the wheel, particularly if you have a really fantastic wheel.
