Double jump through Toxikk's slick movement system

Even though I have never been big on classic arena first-person shooters, I have been fascinated by the little resurgence we are seeing with Toxikk and Reflex (though the latter canceled its Kickstarter campaign when it...

What is a Panopticon?

Ahead of Freedom Wars' October 28 release in North America, PlayStation Blog has listed which Panopticons will appear in the Western version of the PS Vita game. A what now? Think of a building designed in such a way that a p...

Team Fortress 2sdays: Hooray for new maps

Happy Tuesday, or as M. Bison would say, oh who cares what M. Bison would say, seriously. Is he even relevant anymore? I think not. More like, M. Forgottenaboutbecauseheslame. Anyway, welcome to another edition of Team Fortre...

Friday Night Fights: That new PC smell

Happy Friday! I recently (read: last month) built a new PC to play games on. My old PC was just shy of eight years old and hadn't had a decent upgrade in roughly four years. Needless to say, most of the games I have been want...

Your hard drive cries: Master Chief Collection takes up 65 GB of space

It kind of feels like beating a dead horse at this point, but each instance somehow still seems more noteworthy than the last. Nowadays, games are big. Really big. And, apparently when you pack four games into one, the result...

Payday: The Heist is free on Steam today photo
Payday: The Heist is free on Steam today
by Jordan Devore

We told you way in advance that Payday: The Heist would be free to download (and keep!) on Steam for 24 hours, but the original date has since been moved up to ... today!

Claim your free copy here.

You know what this game is already, right? If not, it's the one about committing robberies with friends while wearing really creepy masks. Definitely worth adding to the ol' Steam library but it's also a freebie you might consider, well, playing. I know, I know -- crazy thought.

On a related note, Steam is hosting a free weekend for 10 games including the sequel to Payday. That promotion is live now and will continue until Sunday afternoon. Better prioritize.

This Dreadnought video shows you how to actually play Dreadnought

As I learned at PAX Prime, actually knowing how to play Dreadnought is half the battle. It's an enamoring idea to rush in with the quickest ship and fire until either you or your target is dead. If that's your approach,...

If you happen to have EA Access, I highly recommend playing Garden Warfare

I keep forgetting about EA Access. Perhaps you can say the same. It's a $4.99-per-month service for Xbox One that gives unlimited access to select games from you-know-who along with other perks like early demos. One of my fav...

GOG.com is giving away Aliens vs. Predator 2000 photo
GOG.com is giving away Aliens vs. Predator 2000
by Jordan Devore

For 48 hours, GOG.com is giving out free copies of Aliens versus Predator Classic 2000 to people who register their email address for the GOG Galaxy beta test. Easy enough.

But what is Galaxy, exactly? It's an upcoming DRM-free online gaming platform, as previously described here. Think of Steam as imagined by the GOG.com folks, essentially.

For the beta, "You'll be helping us to analyze and improve the performance of the multiplayer component of GOG Galaxy," hence the free game with multiplayer. Note that keys will be sent in batches so there will almost certainly be some waiting required on your part.

AVP 2000 looks dated but it's possible to get past that after a while. The last time I played -- three or four years back, I think -- it held up fairly well. Still fun after all these years.

Team Fortress 2sdays: Dibs on the spycrab alien

We could've had Binding of Isaac poop hats in Team Fortress 2

When I clicked on this blog post for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, my eyes went straight to the second image -- specifically, the sobbing Heavy. Love it. Next, they shifted to the Scout wearing a hat that looks like a giant ...

Stop being dicks, online racers

I wouldn't call myself a fan of racing games, per se. Dale's a fan of racing games. I'm just kind of a curious bystander that likes to indulge every now and then. I think they act as sort of a palate cleanser for me, the pick...

I went on another adventure in Rust and everyone just kept killing me photo
I went on another adventure in Rust and everyone just kept killing me
by Jordan Devore

A lot has changed in the months since I last checked in with Rust, Facepunch's multiplayer survival sandbox on Steam Early Access, but much of the brutal experience remains the same.

The so-called reboot has become the default choice when launching the game on Steam, while the original version -- which remains playable, I should add -- is now marked as "legacy."

There's still plenty of humorous unfinished technical stuff, to be sure, but it's coming along.

(Warning: tons of pictures ahead and some of them show butts!)
