Starbound's combat update should make fighting more interesting


Secondary abilities, new weapon types
Dec 08
// Darren Nakamura
I'll admit: my hype for Starbound is nowhere near the level where it was two years ago. Being in beta for that long can do that. After my group exhausted the quest lines for the first iteration, we never really went back, des...

Fallout 4's first patch is boring, but probably necessary


Functional's good too
Dec 07
// Brett Makedonski
Sometimes, video game patches sort out or enable quirky features. For instance, The Witcher 3 had one earlier this year where severed heads no longer disappeared. That's a good patch! Developer CD Projekt Red was like "P...

Poor Luigi
Dec 01
// Jordan Devore
Nintendo keeps adding new levels with unlockable costumes to Super Mario Maker, and I'm loving it. The next Mystery Mushroom outfit is based on Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. It's a little weird looking, but that's part of the...

The Patriarch returns in the newest update for Killing Floor 2


Guess who's back, back again...
Nov 26
// Joe Parlock
The final boss of Killing Floor was an utter nightmare. Called The Patriarch, he was a giant mutant armed with a minigun and a rocket launcher, and if that weren't enough, he could also turn invisible, run away and heal himse...

Towers of Doom

Prior to playing the new Heroes of the Storm map, Towers of Doom, my only real exposure to it was reading the all-too-brief objective summary during the loading screen. Thank goodness I was only training with the AI. This map...

What's new in the latest Need for Speed patch


Get your motor running
Nov 24
// Vikki Blake
Ghost Games has detailed what's new in the upcoming Need for Speed patch, "Icons." Community lead Ben Walke stated in a blog post the developer was aware of issues with AI catch-up (AI cars that magically keep up with you when racing) and while the details haven't been specified, it has "made changes to the AI behavior which should improve your overall experience."

Good stuff for the hardcore community
Nov 19
// Brett Makedonski
Rock Band 4 launched in a state that felt kind of bare bones. Several features were cut from past games in favor of just getting you to simulate playing music in your living room again. A lot of that's getting added afte...

Destiny players experiencing 'Vulture' issues on Xbox One


These error codenames are rad
Nov 19
// Vikki Blake
Some Xbox One Destiny players have been encountering "Vulture" errors since the 2.02 update recently rolled out. You should only receive that error if you try to play co-op or PvP without a Xbox Live Gold (or PlayStation Plus, as the code is not unique to Xbox) subscription, but it seems players are triggering the problem even if their sub is active.

With today's 6.2GB "Battle of Shadow and Light" update for Halo 5: Guardians, Big Team Battle is in. My old favorite! The eight vs. eight multiplayer playlist supports Capture the Flag, Strongholds, and Slayer, and it's playa...

Nov 12
// Vikki Blake
If you're one of the "small number" of Xbox One players who are having difficult booting up after the new Xbox one Experience update rolls out today, don't panic. Yet. Microsoft has acknowledged issues with first boot, content installation, and accessory and accessibility issues after the update.
