[REVIEW] "Gang Beasts" is Zany Party Madness

[REVIEW] “Gang Beasts” is Zany Party Madness

Gang Beasts is a multiplayer party game where players control gelatinous characters and take part in slaptstick fight sequences. It’s a party game meant to be taken lightly, which is great, except that the player base is so small it makes the online matchmaking pointless. The concept and execution are relatively solid, however, unless you […]

[REVIEW] “Divinity: Original Sin II” Definitive Edition is Almost Perfect

Larian Studios’ Divinity: Original Sin II – Definitive Edition for the Nintendo Switch is quite possibly a perfect game.
