Now this is how you delay a game

We only just got word that Crawl would arrive on Steam Early Access on July 17, but that's no longer the case. The four-person dungeon crawler is going to be late -- "it could be a couple days, it could be a couple weeks," re...

Play Mount & Blade: Warband for free on Steam this weekend photo
Play Mount & Blade: Warband for free on Steam this weekend
by Jordan Devore

If you've been on the fence about Mount & Blade: Warband, here's one way to spend your weekend. Now through Sunday at 1:00pm Pacific, the action game and its open-ended multiplayer battles are free to test out thanks to a promo on Steam.

Folks who get hooked -- the top user review for Warband literally has over a thousand hours of play time on record -- can then buy the title to keep for $4.99. That's a savings of 75 percent.

There's something for existing players, too. Steam Workshop support for mods (of which there are many) has been added, and the Mac and Linux ports of Warband are now out of beta.

I messed around in the bizarre, experimental reboot of Rust photo
I messed around in the bizarre, experimental reboot of Rust
by Jordan Devore

I first played Rust back in January. It was at times scary, confusing, and frustrating, which is to be expected in an anything-goes online multiplayer game about naked men trying to survive with rocks and crudely-fashioned hatchets while others possess pistols, assault rifles, and explosives.

Thanks to its players and their chaos, Rust was entertaining in a way that a scripted game could never be -- up until the point at which it wasn't. It eventually got old. I stopped playing.

More than that, I quit paying attention to all of the updates in the pipeline for this Steam Early Access game. At about 16 hours of play time, I had gotten my fill, thanks. So I left, impatient and somewhat unsatisfied, unsure if I'd ever truly return to the game.

But I have, now that Facepunch Studios is rebooting Rust. Work has ceased on the original version most players know while the team rebuilds the game from scratch in what it is calling an experimental branch. It's playable now and as janky as things are, it's promising.

Let's take a look! (Warning: there will be some butts.)

Review: 4PM photo

If you're like me, then you'll have staggered out of a pub, wandered home, and then tried to fill in the blanks but, like a favorite song of mine says, it's just the best bits that are colored in.

I can't honestly say there's been nights out where I've drawn a total blank but I know my mates and co-workers have repeatedly needed me to fill in the blanks ("You mean you don't remember swearing at the boss, then throwing up in the corner?") and that's never fun.

Caroline, the protagonist in 4PM -- a short interactive story from developer Bojan Brbora -- is having one of those days. What happened last night, why is the room spinning, and shouldn't she be at work?

Another fair comparison: 1001 Spikes is better than Game of Thrones photo
Another fair comparison: 1001 Spikes is better than Game of Thrones
by Jonathan Holmes

Believe it or not, there once was a time when many, many people thought that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was better than Advance Wars. Thankfully, those days are over now. According to my numbers, 89.6% of those who once suffered from the false belief that Kevin Spacey's upcoming AAA blockbuster competitive murder-spree is better than Nintendo's classic cartoon general simulator have been successfully converted to the truth. Though it's hard to be sure just how responsible I am for this turn of events, it's fair to guess that I'm largely responsible, because why not? You're welcome everybody. 

But a cowboy's work is never done. There are still many poor souls out there suffering from the delusion that a thing that they like is better than a thing that I like. Case in point -- Game of Thrones. Apparently, many of of you out there believe this show/book series is as good as, or even better than, the new death-trap stuntman 2D platformer Aban Hawkins and the 1001 Spikes.

Sorry Throners, but you're about to get pwned(ers).
