The Sims 4 'Weirder' series tells the story of an incredibly not weird man

EA made a video series called "Weirder Stories" to showcase the wacky lives of some theoretical citizens in the upcoming The Sims 4, and then literally made the most dull character it could. Cribbing from Dos Equis' "Most In...

Over The Top Tower Defense coming to PC, Mac

It seems odd enough to do a sequel to Over the Top, the 1987 film starring truck driver/competitive arm wrestler Sly Stallone trying to win a life for him and his son. It's even weirder that it would take the form of a tower...

World of Warcraft's tenth anniversary will include a corgi

Oh, so that's how you get me to write about World of Warcraft -- corgis. Blizzard has a number of plans for the MMO giant's tenth anniversary this November. The notable one, at least to my eyes, is a Molten Corgi pet, obtaina...

Codemasters offering refunds for Colin McRae Rally on Steam

Colin McRae Rally popped up on Steam last week and if you had only glanced at the trailer or about-the-game blurb, you might've thought it was an HD re-release of the PlayStation and PC title Colin McRae Rally 2.0. It's not. ...

Yep, The Sims 4 will support mods

The Sims 4 won't "include every single feature and piece of content we added to The Sims 3 over the last five years," according to its developers, but modding? Yeah, that's not going anywhere. Sims VIP has recapped details ou...

Tropico 5 can't be released in Thailand, deemed inappropriate

The last two installments of the humorous Tropico simulation series made it to Thailand but this year's game, Tropico 5, will not see release in the country -- it's been banned. Following a coup in May, Thailand's government ...

Cheerful shooter Lovely Planet lives up to its name

Lovely Planet is described as "a game of jumping and shooting," which sounds so much more fitting than "first-person shooter." You do shoot your gun at cute little things from a first-person perspective, sure, but I don't wa...

Review: Gods Will Be Watching photo
Review: Gods Will Be Watching
by Alasdair Duncan

Gods Will Be Watching is a tough game. It puts the player in positions that they'd rather not be in and asks them to make difficult choices. In order to succeed at a mission, you may have to do unthinkable things, betray your morals, and become a monster just to survive a little longer.

It's also tough in another sense: the game is bloody hard.

Man, I wish I were playing Crypt of the NecroDancer right now

Are you playing Crypt of the NecroDancer? You should be playing Crypt of the NecroDancer. It's a rhythm-based roguelike in which you hop around dungeons to the beat of music, a novel mechanic that ends up being enjoyable -- n...

PC Port Report: OlliOlli

OlliOlli first showed up earlier this year on the PlayStation Vita, and it flip tricked and grinded its way into the heart of Ian Bonds, who gave it a 9.5/10 and called it a masterpiece "in the sweet spot of 'simple to contro...

There's a Shadowrun: Dragonfall extended director's cut incoming

Crawl is back with a new release date and an 'IRS MAN' monster

I absolutely loved the way Powerhoof handled its delay of Crawl due to some untimely tax issues that needed to be resolved before the game was released. The studio wasn't sure how long it would take to get back on track, but...

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required,...
