Hide And Seek The “traitor in your midst” is a very common trope in storytelling. It is a simple way to add suspense to almost any kind of story. In more passive entertainment media, such as in books or television, the use of this trope is a way to get its audience to be a

Review: Resident Evil Revelations 2

The last main entry in the Resident Evil series wasn’t received very well. Resident Evil 6 was criticized for trying to pack too many stories into a single game.

NeverDead, the upcoming game from Rebellion Developments proves that mashing up every popular genre in the industry can actually make for an amusingly campy trailer. Speaking of cheesy dialogue, one has to wonder if the rest of the soundtrack can live up to the game’s title Megadeth track. [x_video_embed][/x_video_embed]
