Steel Diver was ultimately a semi-bland experience for me, but it was a great grasp of the free-to-play market by Nintendo, as they showed that they can do it better than publishers who have been exploiting it for years.

They aren't done supporting the game yet though, as director Takaya Imamura posted a Miiverse update detailing the upcoming 3.0 update, slated for August. Apparently, internet battles are coming by way of registered friends (premium only), as well as two new stages for local and internet play.

New subs will also unlock if you've played a certain amount of games (it will carry over across versions, and will also only be premium content). There are also a number of small tweaks, new crew members, and it will now only require one Play Coin to play online per match. It's not a bad update at all even if most of it is gated behind premium.

Review: Steel Diver: Sub Wars

Steel Diver kind of came and went in 2011 on the 3DS. As a brand new IP for Nintendo it was a gamble, and one that seemingly didn't pay off with critics or fans. But they're back in 2014 with a free-to-play version title...more

Dirty Bomb aims high with its focus on hardcore FPS action

The folks at Splash Damage have been busy over the last two years. Since the release of Brink and a stint on Batman: Arkham Origins' multiplayer, they figured it was time to return to their roots with a heavy focus on PC...more

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more

Multiplayer-only Halo Online headed to Russia

Halo Online sounds like something you'd see scribbled on a homemade DVD complete with copyright-infringing cover art but, no, it's a proper PC game in development at Saber Interactive. Granted, it's a free-to-play, multiplaye...more
