Sniper: Ghost Warrior has always seemed like the bastard step-child to the super Sniper Elite franchise. Polish developer CI Games’ last game, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 did little to change that perception. While the tactical shooter offered an open world, it offered little interesting or new and suffered from a raft of technical issues.

I honestly cannot recall what drew my attention to Discolored. Maybe it popped up in a feed somewhere or maybe it was a bored bout of browsing the Steam store. Whatever, the point is that the moment I saw the trailer, I had to play it. The smooth motion of the camera panning through interesting-looking rooms. The monochromatic environment pierced …
Need for Speed Heat may be a greatest hits collection of past success stories in an attempt to make up for the past, but it still pushes the pedal to the metal when it comes to being a guilty pleasure of pure racing junk food that’s hot off the engine block.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a story of endings and new beginnings, of the birth of legends and the consequences that come with creating a myth.
