MGS wormholes, becoming Batman & Resident Evil NOPE – the trailers of Gamescom 2016

Yes, much like June’s E3, the arrival of Gamescom means the internet doth overfloweth with more video game trailers than you can poke a sceptical stick at. I for one love me a good trailer, despite being fully aware that they’re often not representative of the final product and designed to generate hype. But oft...[Read More]
