Man, Dangerous Golf looks really really great

The sportsman in me wants to love golf, but the lover-of-exciting-things in me just can't be bothered. As a youth, the best part about hitting the links was wandering into the rough to try to recover balls that other golfers gave up on. Sl...

Nintendo won't lose money selling the NX

One constant in video game console sales over the past several years is that the cost of manufacturing the system almost always outweighs its final price. Traditionally, platform-holders take this loss to get the consoles in homes, and then...

Uncharted 4's future multiplayer maps and modes will all be free

It's not a new trend, but it's a good one. Xbox's flagship property did it last year in Halo 5, and now PlayStation's biggest name is doing the same in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. Over the course of Uncharted 4's lifetime, all added mu...

EVE Online
"It's super depressing," Andie Nordgren said with a sort of semi-defeated smile. She's the executive producer of EVE Online, one of the deepest and most complex sandbox video games in existence, and she's reacting to a key st...   read

Earlier this week, the Citadel expansion came to EVE Online. Two years ago, developer CCP moved toward releasing more frequent updates for the game, so this type of event is a relatively regular occurrence. Citadel, howe...   read

Fallout 4 finally gets Survival Mode on PC, along with a bunch of other fixes

It has been a long time comin', but Bethesda just added Survival Mode to Fallout 4 on PC. The new mode takes away almost all of the easy-to-lean-on convenience of Fallout 4. For instance, there's no fast travel, you can only save while...

Tropico 5 headlines May's free games on PlayStation Plus

Yesterday, Jordan told us to temper our expectations for Xbox's Games with Gold in May. That bar-lowering seems equally necessary when looking at PlayStation's gratis offerings for the month. Sure, there will be something for some people, b...

Halo mixed with Harry Potter is a goddamn beautiful mess

Grifball is one of Halo's most popular community-made game types. It's a bit like Rocket League but with a lot more killing. Two teams try to move a rugby ball-like bomb into the opponent's goal. Everyone's equipped with unlimited-use Grav...

Here's a live look at the Doom single-player campaign

Bethesda's lead-up to Doom's May 13 release has been largely predicated on the game's multiplayer component. There have been several videos released and beta events staged to show off that particular aspect. Today, we get a look at the oth...

It looks like Activision is remastering the original Modern Warfare

EVE Valkyrie will be cross-play between Oculus, Vive, and PlayStation VR

Give me a punk rock EVE Fanfest

This past weekend, I was at a small local concert in Colorado. My friends were playing, and that's more than enough reason for me to go see a show. Toward the end of the night, just before they went on, some punk rock kid came up and drunke...

Here's everything you're missing if you're not in the Gears of War 4 beta yet

A few days ago, Steven used his words to describe the Gears of War 4 multiplayer beta. That's fun because we live in an age where videos take so much precedence over the written word. Still, writing about Gears has a sort of ridi...

Trine developer's new game, Shadwen, sneaks onto PC and PS4 in May
