How to stop sucking at The Last of Us multiplayer

Have you played The Last of Us yet? Maybe, maybe not. You probably should, though. It's really a lovely game. And it's now on PS4, which means there's an actual reason to use that thing as something other than a Netflix deliv...

Destiny had the 'largest console beta ever' for a new IP

Did you get in on the Destiny beta? I did, but only after access was opened to all. Managed to play for about an hour which, after the cut scenes and loading, wasn't enough time for me to get a true sense of how I feel about ...

Borderlands multiplayer moving to Steam, SecuROM DRM is out

The original Borderlands was one of the notable titles affected by the shutdown of GameSpy Technology at the end of May, but 2K said it would eventually use Steamworks in an effort to keep multiplayer going. That's still comi...

Heads up: Payday will be free on Steam in October photo
Heads up: Payday will be free on Steam in October
by Jordan Devore

It feels silly to tell you about a game that's going to be free months from now, but maybe, just this once, it'll prevent someone from buying said game right before the promotion begins. With that in mind, Payday: The Heist will be free for 24 hours on October 18, 2014.

This offer is connected to Overkill Software's Crimefest, a celebration of the Payday franchise's third anniversary happening in October. The studio has a goal of 1.5 million community member sign-ups on the Payday 2 Steam group, and there are milestones with rewards. The group now has over 1,050,000 members, hence the free Payday offer.

Even if you're done with the original game, I'd encourage Payday 2 players to take a look at that link -- the other rewards will be relevant to your interests. Looks like we'll get them all, too.

Crawl is back with a new release date and an 'IRS MAN' monster

I absolutely loved the way Powerhoof handled its delay of Crawl due to some untimely tax issues that needed to be resolved before the game was released. The studio wasn't sure how long it would take to get back on track, but...

AirMech Arena starts its Xbox 360 beta next week

Oh, that's right -- Ubisoft and Carbon Games are bringing AirMech to Xbox 360 this year with AirMech Arena. The original browser-based release (which has since come to Steam) was good fun. It's real-time strategy, but instead...

Everything unfolds and explodes in Rainbow Six Siege trailer

A lot of fine people said some nice stuff at E3 about Ubisoft's Rainbow Six Siege. We're more than a month removed from the big show, but Ubi wants to keep those good feelings rollin'. This trailer should serve as an ample reminder in case you've forgotten, or in the event that you haven't seen a friendly neighborhood hostage crisis yet today.

Team Fortress 2sdays: Between 2fort with UEAK Crash

Happy Tuesday! I absolutely love this "Between 2Fort" interview series. I've watched each one so far and have had a phenomenal time with each and every one. This is saying a lot, since I can hardly bring myself to listen to any podcast. Something about watching people have to answer questions while trying to not get shot, just rubs me all the right ways.

Gigantic is a MOBA-like game I actually want to play

I don't play most MOBAs, but Gigantic has my attention. It's not one, to be clear, but there are similarities, especially with something like SMITE. Here, hero characters are leveling up to gain new abilities, but instead of...
