Prison Architect Review

Prison is a cruel place and time spent there is filled with harsh realities. This is true if you’re sent there against your will, as a prisoner.

Prison Architect entered Game Preview in March 2016 (check out our preview) but is about to make the leap to a full game. Prison Architect is a simulation game much in the vein of the Sims games, except the developer chose not to give you a whole town to work with, … Read More »

The recent gameplay shown at E3 for the upcoming Dead Rising 4 lacks that certain psychotic presence, but we’ve got to believe it’ll be there.

Still, these fresh psychos would have to be pretty special to out-crazy the craziness that came before. So in celebration of a new … Read More »
