Some of the greatest movies of all time are prison films – The Shawshank Redemption, Cool Hand Luke, The Green Mile, The Great Escape and several others. There’s a reason prison stories appeal to us, other than the fact that they depict an incredibly harsh reality in intriguing and emotionally affecting ways.
Resident Evil has become a survival horror benchmark. With a franchise as popular as it is, there are bound to be some inconsistent entries in there. As a fan of the genre or the franchise, you would be totally justified in having your reservations about Resident Evil: Revelations 2.

“Zombies, zombies everywhere!” is something you might have muttered to yourself about the state of pop culture, or of the world in general. Even though we can pretty much agree that too many movies and games run to the zombie well for content, there’s still hope.

Do you remember playing Diablo III or Tomb Raider and thinking “Wow, it would be so amazing if they could make an isometric Lara Croft game!”? No? Well, you’re not alone.
Retro Review: Advance Wars Is as Accessible, Challenging, and Fun as Ever
Advance Wars for the Game Boy Advance has an unusual release history. Originally intended as a Japanese exclusive because Nintendo didn’t think Westerners would be into turn-based strategy (TBS), this classic game eventually released first in North America…on September 10, 2001.
