How has floor-is-lava 'em up Hot Lava not been made already?

Asemblance is an X-Files-inspired psychological thriller

Finally, we have some Space Hulk: Deathwing gameplay to look at

I've told you before that I know very little about Warhammer, whether it's 40K or the regular universe. But that doesn't mean I'm not curious about Streum On Studio's (the team behind E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy) Space Hulk: Deathwing. A ...

Crytek releases The Climb for Oculus Rift

Fallout 4 finally gets Survival Mode on PC, along with a bunch of other fixes

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's 101 trailer is strangely on the nose

Nioh amazingly lets you choose between visual fidelity and a consistent frame rate
