ELEX (PC) Review: It Gets Better After Season 3

Okay so. We’ve all had those folks that we know, who try and sell us on a TV show, or a manga, or something similar. And they warn you that it gets better, you know – once you get through the troublesome first season or first eight chapters or whatever. Alright, you might say. Can…

Torment: Tides of Numenera (PS4) Review

Torment: Tides of Numenera feels like a classic RPG from the late 90s. It’s a literary game replete with descriptive text and weighty, philosophical themes. inExile’s latest, doesn’t trade in flashy graphics and gimmickry.

EGX Hands-On: Adventure Box

Among all the great life lessons we’ve learned from Minecraft (namely that a man can carry 200 tons of stone and that a regular chest can hold 27 large chests), one lesson stands out.  The best ideas in gaming are often the simplest.  What started as a single voxel-based game has become a revolution, spawning…
