Fallout 4 is getting mods on consoles starting in May

Oh, right! Bethesda is planning to support mods in Fallout 4 on consoles. That'll happen sometime in May for Xbox One, and then in June for PlayStation 4, the studio has announced. PC players can mess around with the Creation Kit now while...

Severed trailer

Severed continues to look rad as hell in its final release trailer

Never thought I'd be excited about a Vita release in 2016, but Severed, the latest title from the developers of Guacamelee! is just about the coolest thing I've seen in months. Described as a mix of Mega Man, Infinity Blade, and Punch-...

 
HANDS-ON STE-VIEWS
I can't remember a single character from the original Mirror's Edge, a game I love a lot. DICE's (Battlefield) unexpected cult hit, now eight years old, was laudable. The first-person perspective offered a refined, grounded f...   read

Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 is huge, looks like a prequel story

Much of Red Dead Redemption's theme owes itself to its setting, not in the heyday of cowboy-ism, but nearer to the end of Manifest Destiny. It's why John Marston is working for government men in the first place. But it looks like Rockstar's...

Far Cry Primal adds Survivor Mode and 4K textures

A hella-of-a-lot of video games came out yesterday, from Dark Souls III to Ratchet & Clank, but perhaps you're short on cash, barely making rent, waiting on a tax refund (or, in my case, owe the IRS way too much). Maybe you want to take...

People aren't losing their Division characters after all

Some worrying news came out of the Incursions update to The Division yesterday. A good handful of folks playing on Xbox One logged in to find that their characters were missing, seemingly mysteriously deleted. It's unknown what percent...

 
Wasteland Workshop review
I'm assuming I'm the exact target audience for Wasteland Workshop. I'm the guy who never quite finished the main quest of Fallout 4 because I got too invested in establishing and kitting out every settlement I could. I'm the ...   read

Players can trade gear in The Division now, but no one's making money off of it

Any persistent game with rare loot drops will naturally have its share of players looking to take shortcuts. Titles like World of Warcraft and Dota 2 have entire economies that thrive on the sale of in-game items for real wor...

Fallout 4's Wasteland Workshop is out today

I put a lot of time into Fallout 4's settlement system, so on one hand I'm pretty excited for the home improvement focused Wasteland Workshop DLC. I can totally get down with nixie tube lighting, new signage, and new trophies to deck o...

Yep, No Man's Sky is going to be a big ol' time sink

Division players best go convert all their materials tonight

People who play Tom Clancy's The Division would be wise to take a break tonight from saving New York City from looters and ne'er-do-wells. Instead, they should play the part of imaginary Jo-Ann's Fabrics employees, laying all the craft...

Far Cry Primal is down to $35 on Amazon today

Fallout 4's Wasteland Workshop DLC drops next week

You may want to put the finishing touches on your custom-built robot buddy in Fallout 4, assuming you're down for the next bit of DLC -- it's coming to all platforms on April 12, 2016. Wasteland Workshop will let you capture and "tame" cre...

Starbound's next big update takes it out of Early Access

I was quick to buy Starbound once it showed up on Steam Early Access, but I didn't stick with it for long out of fear that I'd tire myself with the basics before the game really came together. While the developers have made great strides si...

Saints Row IV is playable on Xbox One, Mr. President

As of today, you can play Saints Row IV on Xbox One via backward compatibility. This was to be expected, considering the absurd open-world title is a part of April's excellent Games with Gold lineup (and Xbox 360 games featured in the progr...

Far Cry Primal update

Far Cry Primal is adding Survivor mode (and 4K textures on PC)

Aside from a few specific animal encounters that went real south, I didn't find Far Cry Primal to be a challenging game. By the end of it, with all of the skills unlocked, I might as well have had a metal endoskeleton buried underneath my c...

 
Tokyo 42 photo
Tokyo 42

Tokyo 42 is a damn cool take on Syndicate and classic GTA

As a modern take on the original Grand Theft Auto and Syndicate with some lovely pops of color, Tokyo 42 makes a great first impression. It's an open-world isometric game about an up-and-coming assassin "embroiled in all sorts of cyber-she...

Of course there will be a Shadow of Mordor sequel

The Internet's Big Thing Today isn't as exciting as The Internet's Big Thing Today usually is because today's topic is utterly predictable. The likes of Nintendo controller tree conspiracies and the arrival of virtual reality are inter...

Review: Windlands

Over the course of my childhood, I basically dreamed up the concept for Mirror's Edge. But it wasn't one of those fleeting dreams where you kind of forget it the next day -- it was one where I actually got up and made that dr...   read

Fallout 4 Automatron DLC
I played a lot of Fallout 4 last year. Too much, too quickly, in retrospect. It was one of those games I loved in the moment, but whenever I stopped to think about the bigger picture, I couldn't get away from the nagging feel...   read

P.A.M.E.L.A. is another open-world survival game with zombies, only in the future

I first wrote about P.A.M.E.L.A. when it was a Steam Greenlight hopeful and was pretty bummed to find out it was going to have survival elements. At the time, it was not clear just how deep those survival elements would run, but this ...

Some Division players already figured out how to be the absolute worst

The Division's opening safehouse is proving to be a far more frustrating experience for some players than you'd ever think imaginable. The culprit? Not an overpowered enemy and not some game-breaking bug. It's a guy standing in the doorway...

Frogwares' Cthulhu game is still alive, now called The Sinking City

Well, this is awkward. When it was announced Cyanide is making an official Call of Cthulhu game, we’d just assumed that it meant the previous one in development at Frogwares was no more. Turns out we were wrong. The Sherlock Holmes de...
