Fortunately Arkane Lyon haven’t been resting, and are moving forwards with DEATHLOOP coming this holiday season for PlayStation 5 and PC. For me, DEATHLOOP was the highlight of Sony’s big PlayStation 5 unveiling, read on to find out why.

Revival Recolonization Deep Dive

Revival Recolonization Deep Dive

If you weren’t into mobile gaming back in the first decade of the 2000’s, you might not have heard of the Revival games.
