Atlas Reactor is dropping its free-to-play system

While the closed beta for Atlas Reactor has been reasonably well-received, Trion Worlds has decided to move out of the free-to-play realm with its multiplayer strategy game in favor of premium pricing. There's a specific breakdown of the ne...

SteelSeries has been my brand of choice when it comes to gaming headphones for years now. After breaking or being unimpressed with tons of other brands, the Siberia V2 was the first one that really clicked for me. It was the ...   read

Here's the first four-second look at the next Battlefield

There will be a new Battlefield game released this year, and Electronic Arts is announcing it tomorrow. With about 24 hours left before the reveal, the Battlefield Twitter account posted a brief video teasing the impending unveiling. C...

One last look at Doom's single-player before launch

I keep forgetting that Doom is releasing on a Friday (May 13). Good timing on the "Friday the 13th" front, for one, but also having a whole weekend to tear through a new game? Much appreciated. Bethesda has shared the launch details and if...

 
Goliath
Going by the towering monsters and robots gracing Goliath's menu screen, you'd be forgiven for thinking Whalebox's upcoming game involved clashes between sky-scraping beast. In truth, the game's scale is a little more Titanfa...   read

Steam has a whole bunch of Devolver Digital games on sale

Devolver Digital and Steam are making it easier to part with your money this weekend. The newest sole-publisher-focused Steam sale highlights Devolver games, and there are some real bangers up for grabs. Let's get weird. Downwell for a meas...

Both Star Wars: The Force Unleashed games are backward compatible on Xbox One

Microsoft has announced that the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed games are now available on Xbox One by way of backward compatibility. It's no coincidence that both of them are on sale for five bucks each. Since you can buy 360 games di...

People are doing some awesome things in the Overwatch beta

Overwatch is clearly built, as Cliffy B puts it, on the "mad libs of combat" principle. Blizzard created a "Play of the Game" mechanic at the end of every match to showcase particularly impressive players so that they can share it online an...

Dark Souls III

This player just one-hit KOed one of the toughest Dark Souls III bosses

After three playthroughs I'm fairly comfortable in crowning Dark Souls III as the easiest game in the series, but that doesn't mean it's not tougher than most action titles currently on the market. There were several zones and boss fig...

Ubisoft's Eagle Flight and Werewolves Within are on my radar

E3 2016
E3 has been winding down in recent years, especially with big-name publishers like EA holding their own events off the show floor, and Nintendo literally only showing Zelda at the conference in 2016. The rise of controll...   read

Star Fox Zero might have poor sales but at least it has these puppets

When Falco is bringing back frightening memories of Skeksis chowing down at dinner or sucking the life out of little cabbage patch kids, you know it's legit. These Star Fox puppets man, they're so good! And Nintendo is getting as much milea...

Yes, the new Zelda is the only thing Nintendo has planned for E3

With multiple publishers pulling out of the E3 show floor proper and holding their own events, it makes sense that Nintendo would ramp down even more than it has in recent years. But this ramp is basically a nub at this point. Nintendo has ...

Shadwen
Frozenbyte really doesn’t waste any time, does it? Less than a year after Trine 3 was released, the developer is back with timey-wimey stealth game Shadwen. Unfortunately, while it shows promise, maybe Frozenbyte is a bit too eager to get this one out.   read

These retro X-Men games are truly terrible

Bless 'em for trying, but the retro inspired mini-games 20th Century Fox cooked up to promote X-Men: Apocalypse are pretty damn terrible. Tenuously tied to the film as a throwback to the '80s when the movie is set, Retro X: Arcade is a set ...

Bazaar

Review: Bazaar

I see the term "tech demo" used derogatorily often, but it shouldn't always be an insult. Sure, if a game is 60 bucks and uses a half-assed gimmick, it deserves to be called out. But for bite-sized $10 experiences that are fun to play for a few hours, an afternoon of light fare isn't the worst thing in the world. Bazaar is basically the definition of that concept.   read
