Although women are traditionally the largest gift recipient demographic on Valentine’s Day, that doesn’t mean leaving the guys out entirely. The husbands, partners, boyfriends, coparents, men in our lives certainly deserve to be recognized! They fill our days with love and laughter and lots more, so we definitely want to find them something special.

Best Horror Game 2022

We had a big year for the horror genre when it comes to film, but horror in video games did not go unnoticed either.

My latest co-op multiplayer obsession is Raft, the game where you build a raft

Enlarge / Raft is developed by Redbeet Interactive and published by Axolot Games. (credit: Redbeet Interactive) My co-op gaming group has logged a few hundred extra hours in Deep Rock Galactic since I wrote about it a year and a half ago, but we're always looking for another game to fall in love with. We've tried a bunch of things in the last year, guided by a combination of positive reviews and "whatever is on sale in Steam at the time." We've logged time in Back 4 Blood, Payday 2, Warhammer: Vermintide 2, Sea of Thieves, Diablo III, Risk of Rain 2, and Borderlands 3, and...
