This week, we got to see some decent footage of games supposedly running on Series S, too - including Gears 5 at 120fps. … [Read more...] about Xbox Series S: the right product at the right time?

It’s a relief to see it not pan out a trope-ridden mess, but responses fellow queer critics has been mixed. Kotaku’s Riley McLeod was completely won over by the relatable awkwardness of returning home after transitioning, while Sam Greer and Dia Lacina both felt the game pulled too many punches in attempting to play its representation safely. … [Read more...] about Tell Me Why’s third and final act is out now
