Turok: Dinosaur Hunter — the cult classic Nintendo 64 shooter about killing dinosaurs, which first launched in 1997 — and its sequel are being remastered for PC, with updated graphics and “other improvements.”
Rovio laying off 260 more jobs. Can the Angry Birds movie save the company? Was F2P its downfall? Their games would be a lot more fun if they were a regular price and you could unlock everything in the games.

Minecraft Story Mode is coming and Kaleb is very interested after watching the trailer
