"We use the term 'crunchy' a lot," says combat designer Kate Salsman, which is the perfect word for the way Kratos' new toy feels. "Yeah, so if you freeze the frame, there’s a frame where Kratos’ axe is actually inside the enemy for a

Being a hero ain’t cheap in shopkeeping action RPG Moonlighter

Here's the setup: you are Will, owner of the Moonlighter item shop located in Rynoka village. It's daytime, so I can either open my shop and sell some items or head straight to the dungeons and explore. Days are flexible but I can't sell items at night until I hire a part-timer, plus monsters are more difficult and yield better drops in the dark, so night is generally lootin' time. I only just started, meaning not only do I have very little to sell, I'm not sure what I might want to keep for mys

The Walking Dead: Who Did Negan Pick Up?

Warning: This article will contain spoilers for AMC’s The Walking Dead up to the latest episode. This past Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead ended on a cliffhanger of sorts that has left fans wondering who Negan picked up on his way back to Sanctuary. One theory that we should debunk right off the bat is that Negan picked up Carl. The most likely scenario is that Negan picked up Laura, the Savior with the barcode tattoo who knows about Dwight’s double-cross. The Walking Dead airs on Sunday ni
