The Best News from the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct

This direct, needless to say, has gotten everyone very excited. Personally, I couldn't have imagined this game looking as good as it does, both graphically and gameplay-wise. There was so much revealed that I just had to make a list of my favourite parts from the direct! And so, without further ado, here they are, in all of their amazing glory...

Top 10 Games of the Decade

Yes, I know that it's the end of January and I'm very late to jump on the bandwagon. Cut me some slack though, at the beginning of this month, I moved to the big city and started my first full-time job.

Subnautica is Incredibly Immersive

Subnautica hones in on one truly natural and instinctive phobia: the vastness and dangers of being stranded in the middle of an ocean. If that weren't bad enough, the game takes it one step further and leaves you a sole survivor on an alien planet where dangerous creatures lurk the depths. It forces you to enter this world, to swim hundreds of meters deep for the simple aim of surviving; not just to survive the dangers, oh no, but also to survive the foreign plague that has newly infected your body...
