And from the looks of things, we haven't ev...

We're totally referring to this week's new releases on the PlayStation Store, which include Techland's Dying Light ($60), the Grim Fandango remaster ($15) and the debut episode of...

I've never been one to gravitate toward bow-and-arrow classes in MMOs, although I've dabbled in them from time to time.

It might sound like a bad thing, but my favorite part of playing Ubisoft's The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is logging into the game.
