Surfshark VPN Review – IGN

By tracy
A great combination of user-friendly design, speed, and features, Surfshark has built an excellent reputation for itself in the short time since its founding in 2018. But is it one of 2020’s best VPNs? We downloaded Surfshark to see if it lives up to the hype, putting it through a battery of tests to see if it’s among the best VPNs for gaming, Netflix, and more.

Design and Features

Offering apps, plugins, and services for almost every bit of connected hardware you can think to protect, Surfshark supports Linux, Mac OS, and Windows on the desktop; Android and iOS for mobile devices; Xbox and PlayStation video game consoles; and Amazon FireTV and Apple TV for smart TV platforms. The only major bit of hardware omitted from this list is routers, though Surfshark does have a small tutorial on connecting VPNs to routers that may help. Still, the service lets subscribers protect an unlimited amount of devices, which can make it a great value in a highly-connected home.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time has been rated for PS4 and Xbox One by the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee.

The news arrives thanks to Gematsu, who first spotted the listing. The listing – which now appears to have been removed from the committee’s search results for Crash Bandicoot – offered official box art for the game, which can be seen in the tweet shared below.

The mask is one of the Quantum Masks and apparently knows Aku-Aku, Crash’s mask friend! With the Quantum Masks returning and a Quantum Rift appearing near our heroes, they decide to bravely head through to different times and dimensions to stop whoever is responsible.”

It’s also worth noting that the box art appears to confirm that the game will be playable on Xbox Series X too – in the bottom left of the box, it states

Evan’s Remains Review — A Middle-Ground Mystery

By tracy

Most genre hybrids take aspects of different game types and blend them into one seamless experience. In an action/RPG, for example, players usually can’t tell where the “action” stops and the “RPG” begins. Evan’s Remains is different; it combines a visual novel and a puzzle game, but each genre remains distinct and intact. It alternates between puzzle-solving sequences and story scenes, but never feels disjointed. Instead, Evan’s Remains is a stylish, side-scrolling indie that injects variety at the right moments, even as it struggles with its defining elements.

You control Dysis, a young woman who shows up on a mysterious island in search of a missing genius named Evan. That’s all you know at the beginning, but the narrative gets more complicated as you proceed, bringing in other characters and additional mysteries. Like a visual novel, the scenes unfold through text boxes and character portraits, though you also have plenty of opportunities to appreciate the excellent pixel art and animation. The story is well-paced, with a trail of questions to follow. Where is Evan? Who is this shadowy figure? What is the island’s secret? I enjoyed the pursuit of the answers, but the tale culminates in an absurd twist that
