Asemblance is an X-Files-inspired psychological thriller

I haven't even watched a single episode of the most recent X-Files run despite all of my Twitter-hot-take-fueled morbid curiosity, and yet that series as point of reference is still enough to get an immediate click out of me. This is Asemb...

Finally, we have some Space Hulk: Deathwing gameplay to look at

I've told you before that I know very little about Warhammer, whether it's 40K or the regular universe. But that doesn't mean I'm not curious about Streum On Studio's (the team behind E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy) Space Hulk: Deathwing. A ...

Crytek releases The Climb for Oculus Rift

Even with full safety gear, reassuring floor mats, and those dorky little shoes, rock climbing indoors is something I find to be both scary and exhilarating. I can't even entertain the idea of free climbing out in nature, but virtually? M...

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

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's 101 trailer is strangely on the nose

Nioh amazingly lets you choose between visual fidelity and a consistent frame rate
