There's going to be a Bloodborne alpha

Seeing the words "Bloodborne" and "alpha" together instantly cured my morning grogginess, but the feeling was fleeting: the "small-scale test" is only meant for European gamers, currently. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe h...

Download Halo: Reach for free with Xbox Live Gold
by Jordan Devore

Now through September 30, Xbox Live Gold subscribers can download Halo: Reach for free through Microsoft's Games with Gold program. And those of you with an Xbox One still have the rest of the month to nab the excellent Super Time Force. Just putting that out there.

Reach has the distinction of being the last Halo game I was even moderately into, though my memory of it is mostly hazy. I do recall struggling quite a bit toward the end of the game. Funny how of all the things I could remember about my playthrough, it ends up being the painful part.

Image & Form goes to space with SteamWorld Heist

Image & Form isn't following up its mining platformer SteamWorld Dig with a direct sequel, as much as that would have been a crowd-pleaser. But the studio is staying in the same universe with SteamWorld Heist, "a game ab...

Is anyone else not playing Destiny right now?

The Tokyo Game Show is almost here. We're on the cusp of cool gaming news, and lots of it, but until then the week is off to a slow start. Well, aside from Microsoft's acquisition of Minecraft maker Mojang and the hundreds of...

Wolfire's cool, experimental FPS Receiver is free today photo
Wolfire's cool, experimental FPS Receiver is free today
by Jordan Devore

Wolfire Games' Receiver is a first-person shooter unlike any other I've played.

Instead of a quick button press to reload your gun, here, reloading is a much more realistic, multi-step process that requires effort on your part. As in, you'll need to actually practice. Also, levels are randomized and there are creepy drones out to get you. Good luck!

You can and should experience Receiver, if only for a few moments, especially now that it's free through the Humble Store. Offer's good for today only. Be sure to redeem your Steam key by September 29.

This Far Cry 4 trailer is all about the elephants

Even when Far Cry 4 was officially nothing more than message-board rumors, I was all about the elephants. It's nice to see Ubisoft give the people want they want, then, by putting out a trailer that's devoted to these animal...

Took long enough! Left 4 Dead 2 uncensored in Australia

It's sad that Australian gamers are only now getting an uncensored version of Left 4 Dead 2, but at least we finally have some closure. After resubmitting the cooperative zombie shooter for classification, Valve is now able t...

BioWare's multiplayer action-RPG Shadow Realms looks fast and fun photo
BioWare's multiplayer action-RPG Shadow Realms looks fast and fun
by Jordan Devore

BioWare had my attention with those live-action teasers building up to Shadow Realms, but I've not kept up with the four-versus-one "modern" fantasy role-playing game since it was proper unveiled. If you're in a similar boat, here's Max Scoville and Mike Cosimano talking about it at length.

My general reaction so far is "Huh. That could be cool." I'm not sold on the episodic nature of the game, but a guy in a suit fighting fantasy creatures? Yeah, that's all right.

I've discovered a new go-to game for relaxing photo
I've discovered a new go-to game for relaxing
by Jordan Devore

I play videogames for many reasons. Sometimes, I play for the story -- the chance to visit new worlds and live out someone else's life. Other times, it's the sense of competition I find most alluring, or the chance to master a game's rules and finally overcome its fiercest challenges.

But for every passing motivation to play games I have, I'll always been in need of one that can help me relax. Something to take my mind off life's problems, no matter how big or small they might be. Something I can get into for 15 minutes, or hours on end. Something that'll last.

Right now, Endless Ocean: Blue World is that game for me, and what a gem it is.

Consoles sporting nontraditional colors can be hit or miss, but I have to say, I'm liking this blue Xbox 360. It'll be available starting October 7 in the US at Walmart with Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Call of Duty: Ghosts, a...
