Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps Review (PC)

Umbrella Corps - Box

I do like me a bit of Resident Evil. And this multiplayer only spin off might have even been worth it if it was included with, say, Resident Evil 7.

But even a multiplayer stinker like this has the potential to pull even the mightiest single player campaign down. Harsh words I know, but when a game with so little going for it actually plays poorly as well there isn’t much more you can say….Umbrella Corps - 1

Total War: Warhammer Review (PC)

Total War Warhammer - Box

So it has been a while since I got stuck into a game on the PC, mainly because of time constraints and the ease, and comfort, of console gaming. And according to I really do need to spend some time on the PC with a whopping 6136 hours to complete all the games in my Steam library. Luckily for me one of the last games I did spend time with on the PC was a previous title from the Total War series so diving back in should be easy, right?
