It'll be free, of course
Even if I don't end up starting a New Game+, I love knowing it's always an option.
I had expected the feature to be in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which I still haven't even begun (I'm only now on inFamous: Second Son, as far a...

Fighting for a chance at millions
The wildcard matches for the biggest eSports tournament of the year have officially begun! Dota 2's International 2015 tournament has already raised over $17 million, and four teams are about to fight for their shot at the pr...
Too little, too late?
Red Ash hasn't become an overnight success for Comcept. Unlike Mighty No. 9, the project is struggling to meet its $800,000 Kickstarter goal, having raised just over half that with 9 days to go.
With the clock winding down, Comcept is trying to turn the campaign's fortunes around, announcing a potential PlayStation 4 release and sharing some early footage of a pre-alpha prototype.
This guest has overstayed its welcome
Well, it's been a few months, time for another Five Night at Freddy's game I suppose.
I don't like to be cynical. I don't volunteer to review games, and pay for them out of my own pocket, hoping that they'll disappoint me and...
Here's how to get the voice pack
Hercules: The Legendary Journeys star Kevin Sorbo has lent his voice to Hi-Rez Studios' mythology-themed MOBA Smite. How this collaboration didn't happen sooner, I'm not sure.
Before crying "disappointed!" over microtransacti...
No dog sex
Bethesda has revealed more Fallout 4 information at QuakeCon today. There are 12 companions in the game (including Dogmeat, the dog) and Bethesda says they can all be romanced regardless of gender.
"The human ones," Bethesda'...
Death is lonely. Death wants some company. So naturally he would flood a plain filled with sheep and wolves, then float rafts requiring very specific numbers of dead creature souls at a time. Obviously.
Divide by Sheep is a math-based puzzle game and to that end it works well. What makes it noteworthy is the window dressing, a whimsical cartoon presentation of fairly morbid subject matter.
New screenshots of Doom (2016)
We're not at QuakeCon 2015, but folks who are can play the new Doom multiplayer. Early impressions have been mostly positive, though it sounds like hands-on opportunities are brief.
Oh well. At least we have this cool spooky scary skeleton wallpaper and some screenshots.
Spelunky by way of Macross...and Gundam
We've covered the "Spelunky by way of Macross" space shooting roguelike for a couple of years now and the follow-up from Skulls of the Shogun developer 17-bit is almost here, coming to PS4 August 4 and PC a few months down th...
Still hasn't been funded
The Red Ash Kickstarter isn't looking so good, but now it has another weapon up its sleeve to vie for your cash -- a console goal. If the campaign nets $1,000,000, the game will make it to PS4 as well as PC. A recent pol...
ESL bans performance enhancing drugs
Abusing drugs to enhance performance isn't just a thing that happens in professional sports, but up until now they haven't been tested for in eSports. Coming just a week after professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive&nbs...
It's going to be a hard sell
I don't know where I was on April 23, but I missed the first footage of Overlord: Fellowship of Evil. Until today, I was under the impression the new game was going to be Overlord III. Damn.
Codemasters has a Q&A up on it...
Surprise! But not really!
The new and almost certainly not final installment of Five Nights at Freddy's has released a couple of weeks earlier than expected. It's available for $7.99 on Steam.
Given the events of the last game, Five Nights at Freddy's...
No matter the length of race chosen, F1 2015 mandates at least one pit stop per outing. When pulling into the pits, control of the car is seized from the player and the steering wheel displays the words "pit limiter." Th...
2K Games and Firaxis just released a couple screenshots for the new Mutons in the upcoming XCOM 2, and something jumps out right away. Is that a chainsaw bayonet?
Granted, it's not like anybody could "own" the idea of attachi...
You can pre-load the game on Xbox One
I don't think I ever bought a weapon skin for Gears of War 3, but plenty of folks did. Good job, old me -- you were prone to buying stuff like that in those days but you held strong.
Anyway, the skins are back for Gears of Wa...
While you probably already own most of the Fallout games on PC given how routinely they're discounted, here's a cool thing out of QuakeCon 2015. Bethesda is packaging Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3 Game of the...
Watch the launch trailer
The more time passes since playing The Talos Principle, the more I think it's going to end up on my personal games of the year list. Releasing late last year, it just missed the cut to be considered for 2014, so it will be g...
'Spoilers,' I guess
I came home to my pal Kenny playing Batman: Arkham Knight. Unfortunately for him (and me), he spent most of this time doing the Cloudburst, stealth-tank fight, and swearing. I'm actually second-hand mad at the game all over ...
Xbox console exclusivity lasts one year
Rise of the Tomb Raider will be shedding its Xbox exclusivity next year, coming to PC sometime in early 2016 and PlayStation 4 later on during the holidays, Square Enix just announced.
The title is currently planned for a November 10, 2015 launch on Xbox One and Xbox 360, which gives Microsoft a full year before Lara Croft's latest adventure winds up on a competing console.
Also, bloody Quiet tits
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain popped up on the Japanese PlayStation Store and weighs in at 25.1GB on PS4. On PS3, it is a svelte 11.7GB.
There numbers can vary by region (the addition of localization files, like those recently scrounged out of ICO) and platform (it's coming to PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360), but here's a decent ballpark.
Also, new poster below.

Konami has confirmed that Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 will run at 1080p on Xbox One.

Rocket League is inescapable. Everywhere I look, people are praising the game, a fusion of soccer and cars, for being accessible, rewarding, and endlessly entertaining. I have resisted. I'm not much of a gearhead, and the cl...

It was only a month ago that The Coalition boss Rod Fergusson took the floor at the PC Gaming show at E3 to announce that Gears of War: Ultimate Edition would release on Windows 10. That's still true, but it wo...
