Atari's buggy, unfinished Asteroids MMO is out now

Atari has taken a break from bullying indie developers to release Asteroids: Outpost, a gross and twisted cash-in on the beloved space shooter that first delighted arcade patrons in 1979. The "open world sandbox survival game...

State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition debut trailer, releases April 28

State of Decay was one of those pleasant surprises back in 2013. Sure, the sandbox/RPG-lite horror game was a little rough, but it was an intense experience full of free flow situations, base building, and likable survivors....

Lick the world: Goat Simulator releases for Xbox One and Xbox 360 in April

Oh, right, Goat Simulator is coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360. That's happening in April. This short new trailer says as much, but there's another reason to watch: a real goat stands on an Xbox One. It tickles me knowing they...

Terraria: Otherworld's GDC trailer drops more hints about its alternate universe

When Terraria: Otherworld was announced, it was difficult to tell from the trailer what makes it stand apart from its big brother Terraria or futuristic half-cousin Starbound. Developer Re-Logic's description gave some insig...

Terraria: Otherworld trailer shows an alternate dimension to the sandbox

Whoa. What's this? A new game in the Terraria universe? I have just recently been getting back into the similar-but-unrelated Starbound, so this is especially interesting news right about now. Re-Logic released the above alp...

Windward: RPG lootin' on the high seas

To a sailor, a ship represents freedom. It grants the ability to go anywhere and do anything. In Windward, players take on the role of a captain, dropped into a tropical archipelago sandbox. True to theme, there are many opt...

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is a prettier mash-up of aliens and sex toys

Saints Row IV is absolutely crazy. It is, without a doubt, one of the most off-the-wall sandbox experiences you can have on a console or otherwise. It's an excellent cooperative adventure as well, and it delivers the franchis...

Starbound update includes new race, new combat, new universe

Wow. It has been a long time. I thought that maybe I had missed a stable update somewhere along the line, but by Chucklefish's own admission, this is the first one since last March. To take a step back, development on Starbo...

Medieval contraption builder Besiege looks splendid

Word of Besiege has gotten to me slowly, but now that it's here, I feel obligated to pass the message on. This is a physics-driven medieval puzzle game about building killer contraptions, like this ingenious windmill on wheel...

Heh, Lucius II *would* release on Friday the 13th

  I liked the idea of Lucius. Not enough games place children in the leading role, much less children who happen to be the devil's offspring. But good games aren't built on potential alone. In his review for Destructoid,...

State of Decay Xbox One remaster hits April 28, upgrade plan detailed

Oh, right, State of Decay is coming to Xbox One. Rough as it is in spots, the third-person zombie survival game is worth experiencing (though preferably during a Steam sale). Running around town with your crew, fortifying bas...

Review: Saints Row IV: Gat out of Hell

There’s something about a series that doesn’t feel the need to make a ton of social commentary, or really feel grounded in reality. The Saints Row series is like if the worlds of The Naked Gun and Grand Theft Auto...

Build castles and blow them up with a trebuchet in Medieval Engineers

Keen Software has built a million-person-strong audience for Space Engineers, but I've stayed away from the work-in-progress construction sandbox game so far. Steam Early Access often has that effect on me. The studio's next...

Had enough yet? Terraria headed to PS4 and Xbox One next week

There's no stopping Terraria. I played, and I do mean played, the 2D sandbox game years ago on PC, and it was quite the time sink. Back then, I didn't imagine it'd come to any other platforms, but it has -- to consoles, handh...

GRAV is a survival sandbox set on alien worlds

I don't know when I'll be in a state of mind to play another "sandbox survival experience," but I do like the look of GRAV and its vibrant alien worlds. The dancing is a nice touch, too. This is a PC game in development at B...

Minecraft on PS Vita is the definitive portable version

You know what Minecraft is, your parents know what Minecraft is, and your grandparents just don't understand why that younger family member is on the iPad all the time. It's everywhere, but why has it never received a proper ...
