It's a wasteland, after all
Officially, Fallout 4 players will only be able to romance human companions. They'll also have to resort to violence to complete the story; no perfect pacifist runs, from the sound of it.
"You can avoid [killing] a lot," VP o...
Aqua League mod
I wasn't kidding when I said that funny goal gif convinced me to download Rocket League. Psyonix's driving/soccer game is brilliantly designed, and now I'm obsessed with it like the rest of you.
My infatuation even extends to...
'This game is a big testing ground'
As you could probably tell from my review, I was blown away by King's Quest: A Knight to Remember. I went in with very little in terms of expectations and at the end of it, I was looking at a Game of the Year contender.
A kingly modern classic
Not all revivals or remakes instill a sense of nostalgia within me. For instance, if we ever got that sequel to Kabuki Quantum Fighter we were promised in the original's credits, I wouldn't be all that excited.
Finally! We now know the exact details on the Rise of the Tomb Raider exclusivity deal that Microsoft worked out with Square Enix -- it took them long enough. But even with this information, the backlash that began with ...
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies bet...
Point camera, earn Gamerscore
We're inching ever-closer to the conclusion of Life is Strange. As we get nearer to knowing what the narrative holds for Max and Chloe, we find a bit of familiarity in the Achievements. Like always, episode four Dark Roo...
'Supporting all different play aspects'
The decision of whether your foes live or die in Deux Ex: Mankind Divided -- particularly in your boss battles -- will once again be yours and yours alone.
Talking to OXM, Deux Ex: Mankind Divided directo...
But all we have is a video for now
Those who play Fallout: New Vegas are used to an arid and hot landscape, but one upcoming mod based on Bethesda's 2010 game flips those tables. It's trading desert stereotypes for a frigid tundra environment, and it all...
The catacombs, specifically
While we still don't have a date on the Incinerate N' Detonate content update (personally hoping for late next month), Tripwire Interactive has teased an upcoming map: Catacombs. Instead of being beneath the Burning Paris map...
When Portal met Ghibli
First-person puzzle adventure gaming was reinvigorated with the release of Portal, and the genre has since become one of my favorites. The surreal Antichamber showed us how to think outside the box. The Unfinished Swan&n...
Beta players will get an 'incentive'
The first Street Fighter V beta didn't go over so well. Despite Capcom's best efforts, error messages were a frequent sight among participants. Players struggled to get into matches all weekend.
"After three days of testing, ...
We can't nail when it'll land
Up until this point, OlliOlli 2: Welcome to Olliwood has only shown off its sick tricks on PlayStation platforms. Impressive as they may be, developer Roll7 will soon prove the game has more up its sleeve than just PS4 a...
Watch the trailer
I miss Super Monkey Ball so much. Granted, I still have my copy, and I'm into Monkey Target now more than ever, but a proper new console game would also be nice, y'know? If it ended up being junk, I could always just return t...
StarCraft II is five years old today. Hooray?
Many of us are probably more concerned with how the standalone expansion Legacy of the Void is shaping up. I was about to move onto my next browser tab, but something caught my ey...
It'll be free, of course
Even if I don't end up starting a New Game+, I love knowing it's always an option.
I had expected the feature to be in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which I still haven't even begun (I'm only now on inFamous: Second Son, as far a...
Sets new record by going 18-0 in LCS
Following its victory at League of Legends Championship Series, professional eSports team Fnatic is celebrating not only a successful regular season, but a historic achievement. The group managed to do something no other...
Fighting for a chance at millions
The wildcard matches for the biggest eSports tournament of the year have officially begun! Dota 2's International 2015 tournament has already raised over $17 million, and four teams are about to fight for their shot at the pr...
Too little, too late?
Red Ash hasn't become an overnight success for Comcept. Unlike Mighty No. 9, the project is struggling to meet its $800,000 Kickstarter goal, having raised just over half that with 9 days to go.
With the clock winding down, Comcept is trying to turn the campaign's fortunes around, announcing a potential PlayStation 4 release and sharing some early footage of a pre-alpha prototype.
This guest has overstayed its welcome
Well, it's been a few months, time for another Five Night at Freddy's game I suppose.
I don't like to be cynical. I don't volunteer to review games, and pay for them out of my own pocket, hoping that they'll disappoint me and...
Here's how to get the voice pack
Hercules: The Legendary Journeys star Kevin Sorbo has lent his voice to Hi-Rez Studios' mythology-themed MOBA Smite. How this collaboration didn't happen sooner, I'm not sure.
Before crying "disappointed!" over microtransacti...
No dog sex
Bethesda has revealed more Fallout 4 information at QuakeCon today. There are 12 companions in the game (including Dogmeat, the dog) and Bethesda says they can all be romanced regardless of gender.
"The human ones," Bethesda'...
Death is lonely. Death wants some company. So naturally he would flood a plain filled with sheep and wolves, then float rafts requiring very specific numbers of dead creature souls at a time. Obviously.
Divide by Sheep is a math-based puzzle game and to that end it works well. What makes it noteworthy is the window dressing, a whimsical cartoon presentation of fairly morbid subject matter.
New screenshots of Doom (2016)
We're not at QuakeCon 2015, but folks who are can play the new Doom multiplayer. Early impressions have been mostly positive, though it sounds like hands-on opportunities are brief.
Oh well. At least we have this cool spooky scary skeleton wallpaper and some screenshots.
Spelunky by way of Macross...and Gundam
We've covered the "Spelunky by way of Macross" space shooting roguelike for a couple of years now and the follow-up from Skulls of the Shogun developer 17-bit is almost here, coming to PS4 August 4 and PC a few months down th...
Still hasn't been funded
The Red Ash Kickstarter isn't looking so good, but now it has another weapon up its sleeve to vie for your cash -- a console goal. If the campaign nets $1,000,000, the game will make it to PS4 as well as PC. A recent pol...
ESL bans performance enhancing drugs
Abusing drugs to enhance performance isn't just a thing that happens in professional sports, but up until now they haven't been tested for in eSports. Coming just a week after professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive&nbs...
It's going to be a hard sell
I don't know where I was on April 23, but I missed the first footage of Overlord: Fellowship of Evil. Until today, I was under the impression the new game was going to be Overlord III. Damn.
Codemasters has a Q&A up on it...
Surprise! But not really!
The new and almost certainly not final installment of Five Nights at Freddy's has released a couple of weeks earlier than expected. It's available for $7.99 on Steam.
Given the events of the last game, Five Nights at Freddy's...
No matter the length of race chosen, F1 2015 mandates at least one pit stop per outing. When pulling into the pits, control of the car is seized from the player and the steering wheel displays the words "pit limiter." Th...
