Fallout 4 is set in Boston, Massachusetts. Boston is pretty close to Salem, the town famous for the wrongful execution of women who were suspected of being witches. Naturally, Bethesda had to include Salem in some way in Fallout 4 — and they did!
Far Cry 4 can be a very silly game. It’s hard to keep a straight face when playing anything with exploding animals launching every which way. But that’s not all Far Cry is. Placed in the right hands, the shooter can be downright terrifying.
It might be an exceedingly violent game, but most of Shadow of Mordor has felt strangely… pleasant and lighthearted. That is until I come across an orc that giggles maniacally instead of saying anything. So scary. So, so scary.
