Time now for a jog down memory lane, reminiscing about the times we totally showed that jerk from the opening act.

It's Time to Knife Some Cougars in Red Dead Redemption

Today in our adventures in Red Dead Redemption, we aim to become master hunters by knifing two cougars to death with our melee knife, then collecting their pelts.

Here they are for your viewing pleasure.

The 5 Scariest Things in The Evil Within 2 So Far

The 5 Scariest Things in The Evil Within 2 So Far

Back in 2014, The Evil Within did a good job of fuelling our nightmares for the next three years, but just recently we've been having some pretty restful dreams in which nothing chased us down a corridor with industrial implements. Luckily, The Evil Within 2 is on the way and, judging from what we've seen, it's going to sort that right out. We've played it, and here are the five scariest things we've seen so far.
