Worlds Adrift

Worlds Adrift has open-world swinging, flying ships


Fingers crossed for a Spider-Man mod

The thought of harvesting more trees and crafting more trinkets is unappealing, but I'll put up with those mechanics if it means getting to swing around in an open world. This is Worlds Adrift, an adventure game from Surgeon... read

Dying Light

You can beat Dying Light with no weapons, just punches and dropkicks


And with some patience
Feb 04
Not long removed from Dying Light's recent release, one boy decided to play through the entire game engaging only its best elements. That is, running around and drop kicking fools. It's dubbed the Jean Claude Van Damme run and its the only correct way to play a game that has drop kicks.  More games need drop kicks. read

Cute 3D platformer out now on Steam without Uplay

Maybe we'll review this trailer
Jan 26
Chris already briefed you on the Dying Light review situation. It's grim, bleak, and kind of desperate -- a lot like a real zombie apocalypse, I guess. Good job, Techland; you've achieved perfect thematic #synergy. Even thou... read

Damn, these 20 Just Cause 3 screenshots are so wonderfully Just Cause


Just 'cuz
Dec 11
Twenty Just Cause 3 screenshots surfaced today, and they look like absolutely anything you could ever want from a Just Cause game.
