Why Animal Crossing calms you down, explained

People love to complain about grinding in games, until they decide that they love to grind in games. Or at least, in certain games.

FundamentalVR Brings Its Surgical Training Platform Home On Quest

FundamentalVR, a professional surgical training platform, is finally bringing its expansive platform to the Oculus Quest for use at home. Traditionally, Fundamental’s platform pairs with haptic feedback hardware to deliver precise tutorials on surgical procedures.

The Ethics Of Time Travel In Animal Crossing

Like previous entries in the series, Animal Crossing: New Horizons locks all kinds of progress and events to the progression of real world time.

HTC Vive Cosmos Elite And External Tracker Review: Still Not Enough

Here’s what we think of the new-and-sort-of-improved HTC Vive Cosmos Elite and/or Cosmos External Tracking Faceplate.

The Complex Review: It’s Not Very Complex At All

Right from the opening credits, The Complex seemingly refuses to consider itself a game. It’s blatantly referred to as “A Film by Paul Raschid,” which makes sense as there’s little actual gameplay. This isn’t a surprise, as this is the latest title from Wales Interactive, the makers of The Bunker, Late Shift, and The Infectious […]

Resident Evil 3 is the rare sequel that does less

Resident Evil 3 is haunted by the gargantuan expectations of quality established by its predecessor, the groundbreaking Resident Evil 2. That is as true for this year’s remake as it was for the original PlayStation game; Resident Evil 2 was one of 2019’s best games. In 1999, Capcom’s follow-up to Resident Evil 2 was both […]
