BioWare has made some of the most critically acclaimed games of all time. Unfortunately, it's also made some of the buggiest. Dragon Age: Inquisition is no exception. It is a wonderful adventure and one of my favorite games o... read

I've never been much for official "best of" lists for any given year, but if you pinned me down and asked me what my favorite multiplayer experience was in 2014, I'd have to reply that it was had in Digit... read
This image. This real, developer-made image for Grand Theft Auto Online. Love it.
Rockstar is rolling out limited-time holiday content, like snowballs, festive clothing and masks, new vehicles, and presents. Depending on when... read
The fourth Assassin's Creed Unity patch released yesterday, and Xbox One users found that it was substantially larger than advertised. The update, which was meant to be 6.7GB, clocks in at 40GB on the Microsoft console. ... read
The Xbox One Twitch app has been updated and now console users can watch archived streams, manually select the quality level of broadcasts (!), follow specific games instead of just channels, and search for people. But what's... read
343 Industries is caught in a tough place when it comes to trying to fix Halo: The Master Chief Collection's broken multiplayer component. It obviously wants to roll out updates as quickly as possible. But, it also wants ever... read

Less than a week after release, Ubisoft's already planning and detailing the third of Assassin's Creed Unity's patches. This update is said to be "larger in scope" than the previous patches, and will focus on several problema... read
Coffee Stain Studios hasn't stopped supporting its wonky physics sandbox game Goat Simulator, thank goodness. The mobile version didn't entice me, but this fantasy-themed Goat MMO Simulator expansion is exactly the type of w... read
If I owned an Xbox One, I'd be digging into Halo: The Master Chief Collection right about now. Well, attempting to, anyway: the compilation has issues with multiplayer matchmaking taking forever or otherwise not working as i... read
There's this Discovery show called Naked and Afraid in which two nude strangers survive in the wilderness for three weeks. It's alright but the novelty wears off fast. Imagine how much more entertaining it'd be if there were ... read
Fighting games constantly strive for the fabled perfect balance that turns the contest into a pure standoff of skill rather than giving one player an edge based on character. Nintendo's taking more steps to inch closer to its... read
A reason to bring up Spelunky again? Yup, better jump on that. The PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita versions of the game have new updates that are worth a look.
Fast forward replays
Defender's Quest: Valley of the Forgotten is one my favorite tower defense games, right up there with Immortal Defense, but I haven't gone back to play it again. That'll have to change soon -- there's an HD re-release with ne... read
The Sims 4 was notably missing pools at launch, though something tells me many of us weren't playing the game then. As an on-again, off-again Sims player, I passed. If you're waiting for The Sims Studio to flesh out the game ... read
The Xbox One is a very different console than when it launched last November. Monthly updates to the user interface and operating system have made it significantly easier to navigate and have added a lot of requested features... read
Based on everything I've heard about The Evil Within, I genuinely do not know if I'll like the game. It could be one of my favorites this year, but I also wouldn't be shocked if I ended up hating it, all the same. I'll contin... read
The first post-release update to Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is a bit of an enigma. Nintendo doesn't give the specifics of it, just that it'll "make for a more pleasant gaming experience." We'll have to take your word... read

Remember when Hulk Hogan was an actor in movies like Suburban Commando -- side note: you must look this up, if you aren't familiar with it -- or the time his family got their own television series on VH1? Forget about all of ... read
Here we go. The patch that fixes -- or, at least improves -- how loot works in Destiny.
Chris already detailed the patch, which is out now, at length. But the short of it is that Legendary (purple) engrams will now always awa... read
Pools. Get to the pools! They were notably absent from The Sims 4 at launch but they're arriving in November as a free update. Sim deaths are going to skyrocket.
