This Week in Gaming: Styx, Nier & Silent Hill’s Birthday


The world of gaming never seems to stop. Just when you’ve caught your breath, a new game comes along that will demand your attention and tell you to ignore all responsibilities. If anything, there are too many games right now – my back catalogue is starting to spiral out of control.
