What's this? An Age of Empires II expansion?

I had to do a double take when I heard that all these years later, Age of Empires II has a new expansion out. The Forgotten was originally an unofficial mod before its team collaborated with Skybox Labs for a commercial relea...

Yep, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is a lock for PS4

While the return of Blizzard All-Stars (now known as Heroes of the Storm) has me most anticipating BlizzCon 2013, there's another announcement today that can be considered good news. Blizzard has confirmed that the Reaper of ...

Star Trek Online to add Dyson Spheres, dinosaurs

I must confess: Star Trek: Voyager was my "gateway" Star Trek. So no matter how bad you tell me it was - or how bad I realize it was, the adventures of Captain Janeway and the crew of the Federation starship Voyager ...

Defending earth against new threats in XCOM: Enemy Within photo
Defending earth against new threats in XCOM: Enemy Within
by Steven Hansen

If you haven’t played the eXcellent XCOM: Enemy Unknown, you should. However, now there is a caveat to that. You should play it, but you should probably wait until November 12 to do so because that’s when the Enemy Within eXpansion comes out

Those who own Enemy Unknown on PC or Mac will need to plunk $30 down on the expansion and start a new XCOM campaign to eXperience the content. Console owners can nab a bundle of Enemy Unknown, all its DLC, and Enemy Within for $40, which is a particularly lovely deal if you haven’t picked the game up yet.

While things like new enemy types and cybernetic/biological modifications for your soldiers are cool, I recently got to go hands-on with some meatier content that has me satisfied XCOM fans should enjoy this shadowy expansion.

12 vs. 12 space battles are coming to The Old Republic

As an absolute sucker for space battles in the Star Wars universe, this new digital expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic is looking mighty fine. I've resisted the call of BioWare's MMO even with it going free-to-play, b...

Play Awesomenauts for free this week on Steam

Awesomenauts: Starstorm is one of the few Kickstarters I've backed. It's no secret that I'm a fan of the core game, and I'm hardly the only one on staff, either, but it's something I feel compelled to share. The campaign is s...
