Tekken is a bit like riding a bike. Even if you haven't played in 20 years, you'll be able to pick up Tekken 7 like it was yesterday. And that's a beautiful thing.

Resident Evil 7 is in your face, behind your back, and under your skin horror, and it features the most suspenseful, terrifying setting I've seen since the Spencer Mansion. Disappointing boss fights and forgettable puzzles are overshadowed by atmospheric horror, enjoyable gameplay, and enemies you love to hate.

Beholder feels like it isn't saying much politically, while still shouting at the top of its lungs about what is and what could be. It's an interactive moral dilemma that will force players to rethink everything they thought they knew about themselves.
