Fallout 4 1.5 update and Survival Mode to hit consoles 'in coming weeks'

Bethesda has released some minor fixes in the Fallout 4 1.5 patch line on PC, for those who decided to opt into the beta, perhaps to try out the new, more challenging Survival Mode. Today's update (there are instructions on how to access th...

Kerbal update

Kerbal Space Program has a new interface and runs better

Kerbal Space Program is one of the most daunting video games I've ever taken on, but I am so glad I made an effort to dig in, actually learn a thing or two about real-world orbital mechanics, and gain a new appreciation for how scary-insane...

SFV Guile

New trailer reveals that Guile is still into Sonic Booms, hairstyle maintenance

Something about Guile's new look just seems off to me. He looks more like a pushy TSA agent who is way too into his job than a military badass. Maybe it's the lack of camouflage pants? In any case, he still has the moves. This new characte...

Street Fighter V's April update adds Guile and a 'rage quit' solution

For a guy in his mid-50s, Guile is looking ripped! He's next in line to join the Street Fighter V roster and will arrive later this month as part of an update that also introduces the Air Force Base stage, addresses rage quitters, and touch...

I'm slimey like a snail

Slime Rancher just added more cuteness!

I'm pretty sure I was right when I said Slime Rancher would be the next big indie hit -- although it is no Stardew Valley -- and now the game is getting even better. In update version 0.3.0 released today, players will be able to expl...

Far Cry update

Far Cry Primal adds Survivor Mode and 4K textures

A hella-of-a-lot of video games came out yesterday, from Dark Souls III to Ratchet & Clank, but perhaps you're short on cash, barely making rent, waiting on a tax refund (or, in my case, owe the IRS way too much). Maybe you want to take...

People aren't losing their Division characters after all

Some worrying news came out of the Incursions update to The Division yesterday. A good handful of folks playing on Xbox One logged in to find that their characters were missing, seemingly mysteriously deleted. It's unknown what percent...

Black Desert Online's getting two new classes

On April 20, Black Desert Online’s getting two new classes for you to kick ass with. The male Musa and female Maehwa (because Black Desert’s classes are still gender-locked for some reason) both rely on fast speed and technical...

Players can trade gear in The Division now, but no one's making money off of it

Any persistent game with rare loot drops will naturally have its share of players looking to take shortcuts. Titles like World of Warcraft and Dota 2 have entire economies that thrive on the sale of in-game items for real wor...

Division players best go convert all their materials tonight

People who play Tom Clancy's The Division would be wise to take a break tonight from saving New York City from looters and ne'er-do-wells. Instead, they should play the part of imaginary Jo-Ann's Fabrics employees, laying all the craft...

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...

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 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...

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'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...

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

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'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'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 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
