Still on a 1st gen here...
This week Dell and HP both refreshed the majority of their laptop lineups with the latest Intel 6th gen Skylake chips. Good timing for PC gamers who choose to do the deed on a laptop.
At HP, upgraded configurations of the Env...
Waitin' on PS4 deals...
You probably spotted the news earlier today that Microsoft's last holiday bundle for the Xbox One will be Fallout 4 - and thus far it appears to be the most exciting bundle of them all (sorry Lara).
At our count, we're seeing...
Hope you like spreadsheets
In preparation for Rock Band 4's release next week, I figured it's about time to start downloading the songs I bought on Xbox 360 for use on my Xbox One. There's no doubt in my mind that if I have friends over to play and all...
It doubles in price on October 6
It may seem counter-intuitive, but this is a rare example of a time when you might want to purchase downloadable content before a game comes out. I know, I know -- we usually rally against that hard, but bear with us just thi...
Rare reminisces about the N64 days
Rare has shared another behind-the-scenes video about Conker and this one sure brings me back.
Conker's Quest, as it was originally called before undergoing a name change to Twelve Tales: Conker 64, debuted at E3 in 1997. It ...
Without the Four Horsewomen
WWE is in the middle of something of a #DivasRevolution right now. The movement's aim is to give women wrestlers more of the spotlight to showcase their abilities. It's working to varying degrees -- usually fluctuating based ...
The Witcher 3's Heart of Stone DLC is coming on October 13, and will have 10 hours of content in tow. But before it drops, you can listen to the main theme above from composer Marcin Przybyłowicz.
Microsoft's wrapping up its week of Xbox One holiday bundle announcements with a bang, not a whimper. Fallout 4 is the last package, and it's probably the one that most fans clamored for. Well played, Microsoft.
Check out the changelog
Remember Shadow Jago? He's turning into much more than just a skin for Killer Instinct, and thanks to the Community Fund efforts, he's going to be a full-on character in the future. For starters, he's going to be faster than ...
Tony Hawk HD needed patch too
The last four Robomodo Tony Hawk games haven't gone so swimmingly. Particularly with Tony Hawk HD and the recently released Tony Hawk 5, there have been a bunch of bugs that have been causing issues for players, fro...
Another mystery pass
It seems as if every Season Pass these days is a mystery pass. That is to say -- you probably shouldn't buy it until you know what's in it.
Having said that, Rise of the Tomb Raider is the next game in a long line of AAA...
Are you gonna buy it?
Warner Bros. has confirmed that Batman: Arkham Knight will be back on sale for the PC later this month.
The PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight was withdrawn back in June when the game was deemed unplayable. A post ...
Will you explore it all?
The latest Just Cause 3 developer diary reveals the game's immense, 400 square mile map.
The video details the game's expansive territory of the Mediterranean island of Medici and offers sneeky peeks across the lan...
An expensive, but fun hobby
As I've talked about in the past, I'm usually the go-to person for the toys-to-life genre. I'm a kid at heart, and occasionally, I can enjoy a silly kids movie for the fun of it. No series has encapsulated that silliness more...
We don't know what's in it
Bethesda opened pre-orders for the Fallout 4 Season Pass today, but hold up for a minute.
We know it's $29.99, and that the game's first DLC is expected to roll out in 2016. We also know that there won't be platform-exclusive...
Not worth winning if you can't win big
It's not exactly a leap of faith, but NHL 16 has used its magical season simulating video game powers to predict that the Anaheim Ducks will win the 2016 Stanley Cup. By most accounts, Anaheim enters the season as the W...
More Gears and some Kinect
Microsoft's double-dippin' in more ways than one today. For its fourth Xbox One holiday bundle, it has actually announced two different packages. That's more than we expected, but one of them is kind of a retread from earlier...
'I'm a PC'
Minecraft: Story Mode officially kicks off on October 13 with its first episode The Order of the Stone. Though we previewed it recently at PAX Prime, there haven't been any trailers for it since the teaser back in July. With ...
Recently, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was dated, and Square Enix proceeded to launch a pretty bad pre-order campaign for it. It was called "Augment Your Pre-order," and basically, it unlocked tons of gated content if enough peop...
Oy bruv, you fancy microtransactions?
Ubisoft has announced, that like Unity, the upcoming Assassin's Creed Syndicate will sport microtransactions, which can be used to "save time and accelerate progress." Director Franc...
Double down this weekend
If you've been having difficulty joining the Rainbow Six Siege beta (*cough* which is everyone *cough*), I bring good news -- the beta is being extended until October 4, 2015.
The extension also heralds a Double Renown e...
Was shelved twice before this version
Scalebound is one of those games I've just been excited about since it was shown off at E3 last year. A new game from Platinum, the master of character action, about riding dragons into ancient combat while modern music blare...
The animation hasn't aged well
It's the 30th anniversary of national treasure Back to the Future and Telltale is using that as an excuse to bring back its adventure game series on Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Notably, Back to the Future: The Game...
You might not think of us as civil servants, but we do. We're here to inform and to remind and to prevent you from forgetting to download free video games. It's a tough gig, but we're always up for a challenge.

20 or so to half-ass it
A fair contingent of game-players equate the amount of #content in a game to whether or not it's a "good deal." It's a mindset that has always struck me as odd. I'll take a streamlined shorter game over an unfocused sprawl an...
And comes out very soon
What? You didn't think that all five of Microsoft's Xbox One holiday bundles were going to come packed with gallons of blood, did you? We have to take a minute to think about the kids. The kids!
As a quick detour from the lik...
Because it's all you're getting
Call of Duty: Black Ops III will have multiplayer and the usual star-studded Zombies mode on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but no campaign -- it's too "ambitious" for last-generation hardware.
If you want Christopher Meloni (and who doesn't?), you'll need to play on PC, Xbox One, or PS4.
Have it your way
Continuing along out Sesame Street-themed letter bent, "C" is for "Charisma" in the latest Fallout 4 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. video. That might mean persuading others to do your bidding, or simply persuading them to not stick a f...
If you're sick of hearing of The Witcher 3, you're going to have to deal with it for quite a while longer, as CD Projekt Red is in overdrive mode with this game, even months after launch. In addition to a ton of swift patches...
If you use multiple SEN accounts
Given that no one reads the overbearing startup messages for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, let me point out a worthwhile one.
Konami has identified "cases" of a new progress-killing bug affecting PlayStation 4 users. ...
