Fallout 4 Automatron DLC
I played a lot of Fallout 4 last year. Too much, too quickly, in retrospect. It was one of those games I loved in the moment, but whenever I stopped to think about the bigger picture, I couldn't get away from the nagging feel...   read

Oh god, the robots can now play Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

Well, bugger. That’s me out of a job. Some of you may remember a while ago when UK editor Laura and I played a fair amount of Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes on YouTube. We became a well-oiled machine, adopting new strategies to def...

Our mechanical overlords have mastered Mario

This is how it starts, I fucking know it. First it’s cute little tricks like playing football. Then it’s some actually kind of impressive stuff like this AI who has managed to learn and beat a Mario level in 34 tries. Then it&rs...

I didn't know I needed Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball in my life

I never got much into my high school's favorite rainy-day activity, dodgeball, but it was fun to half participate in, half watch. Our gym teacher would roll out carts full of fluffy, foamy, definitely-not-rubber balls and about twenty othe...

SteamWorld Dig is hitting the Wii U on August 28th, and if you happen to live in the EU, AUS, or NZ regions, you'll get a 25% off discount for owning the 3DS version. But wait -- why isn't this cross-buy discount available in North Ame...

Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser jets to Steam in June

Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser is pretty much love at first sight. A shoot-'em-up inspired by the cheesy animes of yesteryear, Vulkaiser takes place in an alternate 1977, where a bunch of kids in bizarre outfits and a giant robot are all tha...
