Final Fantasy XIII on PC already modded to support higher resolutions

Modder extraordinaire and part-time digital saint Durante has come to our rescue once again. This time he's set his sights on Square Enix's lackluster PC port of Final Fantasy XIII by releasing an updated version of his GeDoS...

PC port of Final Fantasy XIII will run at 60 FPS, weighs in at just under 60GB

The recently announced PC port of Square Enix's divisive JRPG Final Fantasy XIII launches on Steam today, and for those thinking about picking it up, or for those who have already pre-ordered, here are the latest system requi...

Geometry Wars 3 releasing in late November

I didn't want to stop playing Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions at PAX Prime. Part of that was due to the years-long gap since the last one released, admittedly, but more importantly the game ended up being a lot of fun. There's no...

Review: Neverending Nightmares photo
Review: Neverending Nightmares
by Nic Rowen

Mental illness is terrifying. Depression is a soul vampire that will suck the light right out of you. Obsessive compulsive disorder does not make you a supernaturally great detective like it does in the movies. It makes you paranoid and agitated, a raw nerve constantly scraping against a coarse world. The insidious, pervasive terror of mental illness can be far more horrifying than any chainsaw-wielding maniac could ever hope to be.

Which is exactly why Neverending Nightmares works.

Review: Heavy Bullets photo
Review: Heavy Bullets
by Caitlin Cooke

The security system in Highrise Hunting Grounds has gone rogue, and you’ve been sent to shut down the mainframe. With only six initial bullets, you must fight your way through eight levels of neon jungle rife with lethal spiders, turrets, bush worms, and feisty cat-balls.

It’s a good thing your bullets bounce back, because you’ll need them.

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies hits Steam

This trailer, haha. Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies would get a trailer like this. After a short beta, the free-to-play game is out now on Steam. It's like Counter-Strike 1.6 with a bunch of crazy, cobbled-together modes and, ...

Fenix Rage is a rad little take on Super Meat Boy

Fenix Rage was recently released by developer Green Lava Studios, and in short, it's basically a take on Super Meat Boy's time trial platforming gameplay. Every map consists of a cookie (band-aid) to pick up, and a goal ...

Review: Costume Quest 2 photo
Review: Costume Quest 2
by Alasdair Duncan

The original Costume Quest was a seminal game for Double Fine; it was the first game to come out of Amnesia Fortnight, a two-week period of experimenting with small-scale games. Costume Quest's success led the way for Stacking, Iron Brigade, and other download-only games. 

Now, Costume Quest 2 is here just a few weeks before Halloween and it's delivering the same fun as the original. It may be a little too similar in some spots, but there are plenty of improvements to satisfy fans.

A bunch of Disney games are now on Steam

Disney has added a number of games to Steam today and while many of them are movie tie-ins and not particularly great ones at that, there's some good stuff in here. Notably, Split/Second, a racing game with action set pieces ...

Enslaved is only $5 on Steam and you should play it

Enslaved is a really good game that no one bought. This led to Ninja Theory having to go mercenary and make DmC, which I liked, but a lot of people hated. Clearly the answer is this: give Ninja Theory money so 1) I get t...

Next Car Game now has an actual name

It's still listed as Next Car Game on Steam Early Access and the like, but Bugbear Entertainment has settled on a proper name for its demolition derby racer: Wreckfest. "As Wreckfest is all about the madness of colliding cars...

Review: Alien: Isolation photo
Review: Alien: Isolation
by Chris Carter

From the old school "20th Century Fox" opening to the first few seconds, Alien: Isolation wants you to know that it takes after the first film from the series it was based on. One alien, one spaceship, one chance at survival.

This is the game we should have gotten from Gearbox.

The Ouya's best game is finally coming to Steam

Before Goat Simulator, there was Amazing Frog?, a physics-driven make-your-own-fun sandbox game that's so damn funny I'm willing to put up with the irksome question mark in the name. It's a game most of us have not actually ...

Review: The Vanishing of Ethan Carter photo
Review: The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
by Alasdair Duncan

Perhaps the biggest surprise about The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is that the developers behind the game were members of People Can Fly, the studio responsible for Bulletstorm; the idea that some of the people who came up with the over-the-top and potty-mouthed first-person shooter would go on to also make this contemplative, supernatural mystery.

It's a beautiful-looking game where players are tasked with finding a missing youngster but are quick to find that there are dark things lurking behind the lovely surroundings.
