Overdog's a new service that puts you in games with people of similar interests

Playing videogames online with strangers can be a crap shoot. Sometimes you'll get matched up with interesting, engaging, and respectable people. Other times (maybe more often than not), you won't be able to stand the person ...

You can switch Dead Rising 2 and Off the Record over to Steamworks tomorrow

I have no memory of writing about the plan for Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record to drop Games for Windows Live in favor of Steamworks, but I did so last year and slipped in a gif of Resident Evil's Chris punchi...

It's easy to zone out in the open ocean of Windward photo
It's easy to zone out in the open ocean of Windward
by Darren Nakamura

The PAX East expo floor is one of the least peaceful places to play a game. There are sweaty crowds, children who haven't learned to use their inside voices, and booths blasting dance music and/or eSports commentary. And yet, at the back of the floor sat Tasharen Entertainment's booth, where I was able to don some headphones, relax, and lose myself in the high seas of Windward.

Before I knew it, half an hour had passed, a line was forming behind me, and I felt like I had hardly scratched the surface of the genre-blending ship game. I needed more time with it to get a really good feel for it. I started up the Early Access build the other day and the time melted away. I managed to get six hours of play in that same day.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 takes Raid online by end of month

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 has been a solid showing from Capcom thus far. The only real snag has been the approach to cooperative play, as it's not yet available for Raid mode. That'll change within a few week's time. ...

Dance the night away with custom taunts in TF2

Are you a taunter? I'm not. Okay, well, I try not to be. But then developers go and design achievements around taunting X amount of times, and it'd be rude not to oblige them probably. Or there's some jerk in Awesomenauts who...

Lineage II keeps on keeping on with latest expansion announcement

The MMO genre is not what it used to be. That doesn't mean, though, that there still aren't thousands of players that enjoy the endless farming and miles of endless walking that these games provide. With all the other options...

Homewreckers wanted for the upcoming Rainbow Six Siege PC alpha

I'm a total newcomer to the Rainbow Six series but I quite liked Siege's wall-blasting ways at E3 last year. Not so much for the tactical possibilities that destructible environments enable as the simple human desire to punc...

Evolve's free map DLC is doing that 'Xbox first' thing photo
Evolve's free map DLC is doing that 'Xbox first' thing
by Jordan Devore

It's great to see free maps in a multiplayer-centric game like Evolve, but -- there just had to be a but -- timed platform exclusivity? Considerably less good. When the maps Broken Hill Mine and Broken Hill Foundry debut on March 31, they'll only be available for Xbox One. Following that initial release, PC and PlayStation 4 players will be able to download the pair on April 30.

"Mine" is set in a cave system whose hidden pathways should thoroughly confuse untrained hunters (like me!), while "Foundry" is more of an industrial zone containing crates of bohrium that the beast can consume (though doing so will make enough noise to give away its position).

If Turtle Rock Studios can keep a steady flow of new content going, there may still be a decently active player base by the time I dig into Evolve. Speaking of which, I need to check in on Titanfall.

Titanfall turns one year old, gives away all DLC for free photo
Titanfall turns one year old, gives away all DLC for free
by Brett Makedonski

Titanfall celebrates the first anniversary of its launch today. There might not be a grand showcase dedicated to everything that's happened to the game over the year, but EA and Respawn haven't forgotten about it altogether. They're quietly handing out gift bags to anyone who still wants to party.

All of Titanfall's add-ons across all three platforms -- Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC -- have been made free. Users can simply queue up the season pass on their preferred system. It's currently unknown how long this freebie will last, so it's best to pick it up now instead of waiting.

The joy of painting: Splatoon's Splat Roller looks fun

Not to just gush about Splatoon every darn time we bring up the game and its delightful nonsense, but I'm feeling this short, no-frills showcase of the Splat Roller weapon. Got 20 seconds to spare? The oversized paint roller...

Affordable Space Adventures is the Wii U experience I imagined in 2012 photo
Affordable Space Adventures is the Wii U experience I imagined in 2012
by Darren Nakamura

When Nintendo first unveiled the Wii U, my mind raced with ideas for games that could be created with the two-screen interface. A lot of the cool stuff that the DS did could be transferred to the big screen. Better yet, titles like those that made use of Game Boy Advance-to-GameCube connectivity could surface in a more accessible format.

In practice, it has taken a while for developers to do really interesting things with the GamePad. A lot of the most lauded titles would work fine without the second screen. Affordable Space Adventures is one of the few Wii U titles that feels like it could not be done on another platform. It plays to the console's strengths, finally producing the type of experience the Wii U was made for.

We'll need Windows 10 (or an Xbox One) for Gigantic

Motiga's team action game Gigantic is looking fabulous in this new trailer out of PAX East. While that's no surprise, this is: the Seattle-based studio is partnering with Microsoft to bring the game to Windows 10 as "a key l...
