We are approaching the final days before the launch of easily one of the most anticipated games of the year in Red Dead Redemption 2. As a sequel to one of the most well-regarded games ever, it has a lot to live up to. But it seems like developer Rockstar is up for the challenge, and in the process may just raise the quality bar for the entire game industry.
There had been almost no talk about the game before two months ago. Then, suddenly a tidal wave of info flooded the internet, hoping to fill in some (but not all) of the blanks regarding the next entry. We’ve rounded up some of the need-to-know items to help get you prepared for it.
Toys-to-life games, games that have both a digital and physical components, had quite a moment earlier in the decade. After the closure of the studio that made Disney Infinity a couple of years ago, the sub-genre has been on ice. Until now, that is!

Sloclap's kung fu simulator, Absolver, brought a fresh approach to hand-to-hand combat in video games when it launched last year. A new expansion, Downfall, is now available for free, so now is as good a time as any to get back into fighting shape or to jump in for the first time.

Space is the final frontier for several reasons. Primarily it's because there are floating chunks of rock out there holding really neat space elements that would be much more useful not buried in their cores.

But how to do it? With meticulously constructed space drones, of course!
