*Warning Graphic Content Ahead (Blood/Gore) The first person genre for consuming video games and cinematic experiences was arguably brought to life among the masses in December of 1993. December 10, 1993 was the release of the titular title Doom. The effects of this sole title's release can be seen through its core game-play aspects which have been adopted by the majority...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeMkgoH2iHQ With a thematic trailer of exploration and civilization combined with the powerful and moving orchestral score, Civilization VI has been revealed.

"Some day the flame will fade and only embers will remain." This exact quote has been rehashed and muttered by countless characters in the Dark Souls franchise. The climatic end to this trilogy is a spiraling descent into utter madness which forces the player to examine the game worlds darkest motifs. For the uniformed, the Dark Souls series is...
Statistically, a 95% chance to hit a target seems like superb opportunity to take a shot on a target. XCOM 2 has reinforced the opposite mentality.
