FK in the Steam: Deadly Premonition is out for PC

Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut coming to Steam -- even if it weirdly had to go through Greenlight for approval -- is a very good thing. What's not quite so good is the fact that this version is locked in at 720p. Afte...

I'm by no means an expert Dark Souls player, but I've played long enough that this mod by JITD, which alters enemy AI in such a way that they'll come to you more readily, sounds intriguing. Put enough hours into the game, an...

Heroes of StarCraft mod adds hero units to Civilization V

I love mods, probably way more than I should, and it is always amazing the things that creative people can come up with. The Heroes of StarCraft mod for Civilization V, along with a partner mod by the same modder, adds hero u...

Play as the 'older' versions of Left 4 Dead's cast

That's Francis up there. Yeah. At one point in time, he and the other three survivors of Left for Dead looked ... how do I put this politely? Iteration is important, let's just say. Valve has graciously released the original ...

This first-person Dark Souls mod is neat but unwieldy

File this one under "Nice idea that needs work." Soul Slasher on YouTube has uploaded a video runthrough of Dark Souls in a first-person view and it's, well, a bit on the disorienting side. There's also the whole lack-of-lim...

Oculus Rift + stationary bike + Kinect = Paperboy

Globacore has combined a stationary bike, the Oculus Rift, and the Kinect to create PaperDude VR, an homage to Paperboy. The video here shows off the game in action, and holy crap do I want this. It's probably not a good idea to throw actual newspapers when you play the game though.
