Our top pick of the week?

Resident Evil 2
25/01/2019

Resident Evil is a beloved franchise that brought horror and gaming to an entirely new level. Unfortunately though it started to loose its way as the sequels kept churning and it seemed to have lost what made it big to begin with.

With Resident Evil 7 pointing the series back in a more solid direction. So this was a great time to return to the franchises roots, but with an entirely new game that is a homage to one of the more overlooked entries in the games early titles.
