The Division

Seems like The Divison players spend most of their time playing alone

I love it when companies share things like this. Ubisoft shared the infographic above to illustrate how much has happened in the 30-some days since The Division's release. In just once month, players have killed more than 17 bill...

Star Trek Online brings back alien Nazis in its Season 11.5 update

Star Trek Online is pretty cool if you're a fan of deep cuts from Star Trek lore. Name an episode from any of the TV series over the last fifty years and there's probably a reference to it tucked away in the game somewhere. The k...

The Witness

New PS4 update for The Witness might help with motion sickness

It sure does feel odd to boot up The Witness again. I had intended to continue solving optional puzzles after earning the platinum Trophy, albeit at a much laxer, much more sane pace, but ended up stopping completely. Why go back now? A Pla...

Binding of Isaac + Bumbo

Binding of Isaac updates and a Bumbo tease

I'm both excited and terrified for Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+. I mean, more Isaac is always a good thing, but I'm STILL trying to collect all of the items and secrets that were included in the vanilla Afterbirth expansion. Creator Edmund ...

Halo 5 is running a beta for Warzone Firefight next week

343 Industries is going to let Halo 5: Guardians players try out the upcoming eight-person cooperative mode Warzone Firefight early with a beta. It's set to run next Thursday, April 14 at 10:00am Pacific until that same time on Monday, Apri...

Stardew Valley

Death in Stardew Valley's mines isn't quite so punishing now

Few games have me more excited to dig through patch notes than Stardew Valley. Left to my own devices, free of responsibilities, I'd be playing the hell out of it right now. I left off about a week ago trying to decide if I should get goats...

Starbound

Starbound's next big update takes it out of Early Access

I was quick to buy Starbound once it showed up on Steam Early Access, but I didn't stick with it for long out of fear that I'd tire myself with the basics before the game really came together. While the developers have made great strides si...

The Division's free April 12 update introduces Incursions

Ubisoft is preparing a free content update planned to hit The Division on April 12, 2016 that will add the game's first Incursion, "Falcon Lost," for endgame players to tackle. If you want high-level loot, and I know you do, first you'll ha...

Destiny

Here are Destiny's newly-updated Exotics

To promote Destiny's upcoming April 12 update, Bungie held a livestream to give players some indication of what's included. It's a fair amount of what you might expect -- new activities, missions, items, etc. However, Bungie also took to I...

 
Far Cry Primal update photo
Far Cry Primal update

Far Cry Primal is adding Survivor mode (and 4K textures on PC)

Aside from a few specific animal encounters that went real south, I didn't find Far Cry Primal to be a challenging game. By the end of it, with all of the skills unlocked, I might as well have had a metal endoskeleton buried underneath my c...

Fallout 4 update

Fallout 4's Survival mode sounds like a beautiful nightmare

Bethesda has released a beta version of Fallout 4's new Survival mode on PC. If you're ready and willing, you can now download the update through Steam (instructions here). With the mode enabled, you're only able to save after sleeping on a...

Street Fighter V

Street Fighter V's March update is coming next week, and there's a lot in it

Capcom's relative silence had many people wondering if the free March update for Street Fighter V -- a game in need of updates and additions -- would actually make its promised window. Turns out that it will, but just barely. Street F...

Destiny's Prison of Elders will be updated to endgame levels

Bungie's latest Twitch stream just ended, and it let loose some key information about the upcoming free spring update to Destiny. Previously hinted with a single screenshot of Guardians in specific gear, the Prison of Elders activity -- fir...

Stardew Valley is starting to flesh out its marital life

After making it through the first full in-game year of Stardew Valley (20-something hours, real time), I have cooled on it enough that I can get back to managing a decent night's rest. But things were looking spotty for a while there. I was...

The Division's Dark Zone is about to get better

Are you still out there in the Dark Zone, dividing to your heart's content? Are you cold and alone, wishing you could make a new friend out a neutral player by healing them? Or maybe you killed a sucker out there, but couldn't find enough a...

XCOM 2 patch brings balance and performance tweaks

I loved XCOM 2, but even its biggest fans could agree that it needed some serious patch-love. Bugs, hitches, and some nasty difficulty spikes all conspired to keep the game from becoming the instant classic it should have been. Thankfully, ...

Nice 'Big Head' mode you got there, Unreal Tournament

There's a newly-updated version of the Unreal Tournament pre-alpha with a Big Head mutator and, jeez, how the heck do I keep forgetting this is in production and also freely playable? Lookin' good. Epic Games and community creators have bee...

Just Cause

Just Cause 3 now has quicker load times

I'm not interested in the DLC for Just Cause 3 yet, even if it does come with a freakin' jetpack wingsuit, but more improvements to the core game? Bring 'em! The latest update is now live on PC (and, in a shocking twist, has already been av...

Mortal Kombat XL provides a strong reason to come back to the arena

Don't write a hot take about SFV... Don't write a hot take about SFV... Don't write a hot take about SFV... Mortal Kombat XL should make Street Fighter V ashamed of itself. Dammit.

Anti-lag measures rolling out across all Destiny playlists next week

Bungie will be applying anti-lag measures across all Crucible playlists in Destiny from next week.  Initially the settings were trialed in Iron Banner and Control, but from March 8, 2016, you’ll find it rolling across all other m...

Nintendo isn't done updating Splatoon this year

"It ain't over yet for Splatoon." As discussed during the Nintendo Direct presentation this afternoon, the inky shooter will continue to improve this year with more updates. First up, a patch is dropping on March 8 (March 9 in Europe) that ...

Here's what's coming in the PS4 3.50 firmware update

Update: Hmm... the video has been switched to "private". Hope you managed to see it before it was yoinked. Just as well I took 'em screencaps, eh? If you’re not in Sony’s beta test, here’s a behind-the-scenes tour of what&...

The second Awesomenauts expansion is out now on Steam

I never could have predicted Ronimo would be able to keep Awesomenauts going for this long. It's impressive! Today, the studio released another major update for the 2D MOBA as well as the second paid expansion, Overdrive, which adds three c...

Killing Floor 2 sends you to prison with a sexy lever action rifle

The Sharpshooter perk/class in the first Killing Floor was a fan favorite for many reasons. The two most important are that it made taking down big Zeds like Fleshpounds and Scrakes easier, and that the Lever Action Rifle was so damn f...

Garden Warfare 2 is going to bring Rose down a notch

If you've spent any amount of time playing Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 online, you undoubtedly see Rose when you close your eyes at night. There she is, way off in the distance, grinning. She knows you can't escape her homing shots...

You can dual wield anything you want in Minecraft's Combat Update

I haven't played Minecraft in approximately twenty-six years, but lately I've been thinking about getting a group of buddies together and playing it to see how much has changed since the year 1990. Mojang must have sent its Thought Thieves ...

Still playing Fallout Shelter? 'Cause it has a whole bunch of new stuff

Fallout Shelter has been out for almost nine months, but it's just now getting its largest update ever. That's probably a good thing for the people who are still playing virtual vault overseer. A little shake-up has to be widely welcom...

Mortal Kombat XL patch up on PS4 and Xbox One

The compatibility patch for MKX's XL expansion is live on both PS4 and Xbox One. Even for users who haven't purchased MK XL, the patch has a few goodies. Chief among them is a new stage (or rather a new version of an old stage), The Pit. Fi...

Subnautica's farming update is more my speed

Despite survival-game fatigue, I ended up getting Subnautica a few weeks back. The recent H2.0 update (hah) introduced a tool for scanning creatures and plants, and unsurprisingly, that did the trick. I couldn't hold out any longer for the ...
