If you've enjoyed having your brain teased by a video game in the last 20 years, or enjoyed the layered mechanical riddles of an IRL escape room, you have Myst to thank. Wildly popular when it launched in 1993, the narrative adventure was a pivotal moment for puzzle-solving in games. Now, 27 years later, the classic is reborn in virtual reality--rebuilt, but almost completely unchanged. Myst is and will always be a treasure. Even after all these years, its puzzles will still test, and maybe even stump, you. For returning fans, seeing it in VR for the first time is a powerful nostalgia trip. B ... lees verder

My six-player Destiny 2 fireteam fired away as the Deep Stone Crypt raid boss, the toughest enemy of the Beyond Light expansion, teleported around the arena and roared with rage.

It was now or never--if we didn't manage to kill this thing immediately, it would kill us, and we'd be back to the start of the lengthy fight. And we'd sunk more than 12 hour ... lees verder

Novelizations of big movies were hugely popular in the '70s and '80s, and one of their most prominent writers was Alan Dean Foster. He wrote the adaptations of the original Star Wars trilogy and first three Alien movies, as well as Splinter of the Mind Eye, the 1978 novel sequel to the first Star Wars film. Disney now owns both of these massive franchises, and Foster has accused the company of not paying him the royalties he is owed on his books.Foster states when Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012 and 20th Century Fox in 2019, it bought the rights to his work. However, even though his Star W ... lees verder

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity occasionally lets you take control of a Divine Beast. It's a moment that should carry some weight for Zelda fans. The Beasts are colossal machines crucial to the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and while they're cumbersome to control, the levels in which you play as them effectively communicate their destructive power. If you've played Breath of the Wild, these moments take on a portentous air; the power fantasy of using lasers, bursts of lightning, and volleys of magma to level mountains and rack up thousands of Bokoblin, Moblin, and Lizalf ... lees verder
