It’s almost the end of the month. Soon, we won’t be dining on cheap dog food! Nope, it’ll be gourmet canned dog food for a week or two! Ha! Still, you may have a few bucks left to spare.

A few times a year, Steam has their massive sales and causes PC gamers' backlogs of games to grow.

It's been a mere three weeks since Resident Evil was re-released for modern gamers. With a shiny coat of paint and the glory of nostalgia, Resent Evil HD Remaster was sure to do well. But it has done even better than expected.

Dying Light is, in some capacity, available for purchase worldwide now. I've been having good and bad times with it over the past few days, and hope to have my review out fairly soon. Some PS4 owners, however, are struggling to even get the game to download. It seems like the PS4 gets confused, but thankfully there's a neat little workaround already.
