Very Quick Tips: Civilization: Beyond Earth

Civilization: Beyond Earth is fantastic, but even though it does a lot through tutorial popups, missions, and the Civilopedia to help new players, it can still be daunting. With several new systems in place, even series veter...

Very Quick Tips: Alien: Isolation
by Chris Carter

That Xenomorph can be one tricky asshole in Alien: Isolation. One time it walked out of a room, waited a second, then turned back around to find me awkwardly climbing out of the cabinet I had been hiding in.

What a dick. Here's how to avoid that situation and more.

A quick guide to all four Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel skill trees photo
A quick guide to all four Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel skill trees
by Darren Nakamura

In case you have not yet heard, the full, interactive skill trees for all four of the Vault Hunters in the upcoming Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel have been released for public consumption.

Some of the mathematics governing the skill trees has been tweaked for the Pre-Sequel, so in contrast with Borderlands 2, these new Vault Hunters will be able to reach the end of two of their three skill trees before hitting the initial level cap of 50.

Most people looking forward to the title had already decided on which character to main, but now we can all make more educated decisions. In my case, I am sure I will eventually play them all. So after reading every skill carefully, imagining how it will all play out on the battlefield, and spending far too much time tweaking skill points, I have come up with proposed builds for how I expect to play each of the new characters.

Not-review: Brady Games Ultimate Street Fighter 4 Official Bible photo
Not-review: Brady Games Ultimate Street Fighter 4 Official Bible
by Jonathan Holmes

Fighting games are about more than competition. At their best, they are about taking the most simple of design concepts (be better at hitting someone than they are at hitting you) and using game theory magic to somehow evoke years of replayability and depth. 

For years, fighting game strategy guides didn't even come close to doing justice to the games they covered. No matter how insightful and knowledgeable the writers of those guides were, the limits of print excluded them from doing too much more than giving out some basic strategy, combos, and overview of how the game's system works. 

The internet changed all that. There are now countless places to learn just how deep most fighting games can go. If print strategy guides are to serve any purpose at all in the future we're living in, it's going to have to deliver something special. It's going to have to curate information with an expert eye, delivering only the information that you need, relieving you of the burden of wading through reams of irrelevant information online. It's going to have to be equally accessible to both veterans and beginners. It's going to have to give you insights that you just can't find anywhere else. 

With few exceptions, Brady Games' Ultra Street Fighter IV Official Bible does all that and more.

Very Quick Tips: Shovel Knight photo
Very Quick Tips: Shovel Knight
by Chris Carter

Shovel Knight is an amalgamation of a lot of old school 2D platformers, most notably Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and Mega Man. As such, it involves a decent amount of tricky jumps, boss fights, and some adventure elements that are a bit more cryptic than the average game.

Here are some basic tips to help you on your way to New Game+.

Here's how to get Hearthstone on your iPad if it isn't out in your region
by Chris Carter

I've seen quite a few people sigh at Hearthstone's recent iPad port rollout, because currently the game is only available in a select few regions, leaving a couple of major countries out of the loop (like the US).

But it's actually pretty easy to download it on your iPad in minutes, using a simple region change method that you can do entirely within your device.

Tips and GIFs: Tower of Guns photo
Tips and GIFs: Tower of Guns
by Patrick Hancock

Tower of Guns is a game of many secrets and intricacies, just as any good roguelike. Since I love to teach people things, I thought I'd lend a helping hand out to anyone who cares to look. Not just with text and those plain non-moving images though. What is this, 2001? We have pictures that move now! Just like Harry Potter's newspapers.

So please join me in "Tips and GIFs," a new idea I had about actually demonstrating the tricks I'm trying to convey with words to better reinforce the idea. Considering this is the first installment, I'd love some feedback, even if you can't use the actual tips themselves!

by Chris Carter

Deception IV is a unique release, mainly due to the fact that there aren't many trap-setting games on the market in general.

Because of that, it's often hard for people to acclimate if they've never played a past entry before (Trapt is on the PSN, by the way) -- so here are some tips to help you along.

Very Quick Video Tips: A guide to all the Ground Zeroes XOF patches photo
Very Quick Video Tips: A guide to all the Ground Zeroes XOF patches
by Chris Carter

Both Sony and Microsoft have their own platform-exclusive missions for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, and you'll have to do a bit of legwork to unlock them. Basically, you'll need to grab all nine XOF patches hidden throughout the main mission, then complete the main objectives.

Here in this video I'll show you the location of every patch, and pause for a second to also show it on the iDroid map. If you're wondering how to get the second patch at the start of the video, just go prone, and press in the left stick to roll from side to side constantly until it falls out.

XOF patch progress only saves at checkpoints -- so if you get a game over, you may need to recollect a few.

These are my favorite Luftrausers
by Conrad Zimmerman

I've been slavishly playing Luftrausers like a madman this past weekend, and I'm shaping up to be a fairly decent player. To help you get a sense of the different Rausers you can pilot, I put together this little video showing four of my favorite configurations.

I'm seriously addicted to this game. Only three absurdly difficult challenges stand between me and total completion, and I'll be damned if I'm going to let them get the better of me. Make sure you go and read our full review!

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is a pretty unconventional shooter -- and that's partially why I liked it.

Here are some quick tips to help you get acclimated to the world of Garden Warfare.
