Baldur’s Gate III Preview

I know the last few years have been rough for a variety of reasons, but one of the few indicators that we’re not quite living in the darkest timeline was last year’s announcement that Baldur’s Gate would be resurrected by none other than Larian Studios.

I was recently invited to Manhattan for a first look at Baldur’s Gate III, and based on what I saw, the pairing seems to be every bit as perfect as I’d hoped.


The Division 2: The Warlords Of New York Preview

This Is Not A Review – Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Ancestors: the Humankind Odyssey, available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, developed by Panache Digital and published by Private Division.
