This is why it's good we aren't getting our GTA V mods taken away

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of modding. Those are our inalienable rights as human beings. Rockstar can't take those from us. Good thing it's not going to try. Besides, I'm pretty sure the right to bear mods is protected b...

Swery: D4 on PC is '100 percent bona fide D4'

To say that developer Hidetaka Suehiro -- or, Swery65 as most everyone knows him -- has a knack for creating unique and strange videogame experiences would be an understatement. He has a loyal cult following, as anyone that l...

Review: Vertiginous Golf

Golf has a centuries-old reputation as being a maddening game. It's simple in premise, but that simplicity is always lost in transition from theory to execution. "Put tiny white ball in tiny cup" sounds easy enough, but after...

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood's new video is a pipe dream

We haven't gotten our grubby little hands on a copy of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood yet. Chris expects to have to buy that at midnight. However, we did get our grubby little hands on this widely-available gameplay video i...

PLEX for Good: EVE Online players can donate to the Nepal earthquake relief fund, too

Doing good sometimes has a domino effect. That's the case with contributions to the Nepal earthquake fund. First, the Far Cry devs started matching donations. Then, Bungie sold t-shirts to help the cause. Now, CCP's hype...

Project Cars trailer can't seem to move at the right speed

I haven't yet had a chance to play Project Cars, but I have a fair amount of experience in the racing genre. Usually these games depict fast cars going reasonably fast. This trailer wavers a bit before finally nailing that. ...

It's official, David: Swery's D4 is coming to PC

Japanese developer Swery has done a great job curating an air of mystery around the plot of his games. However, he hasn't been as outstanding at keeping the games themselves a mystery. Such is the case with a PC port of D4: D...

Get some free Xbox Live multiplayer this weekend

At this point, I'm used to just ponying up some discounted rate of $60 for Xbox Live Gold every year. I've done it for so long that I often forget it's tied to all multiplayer situations on the service. When I think about it...

It's about to get weird in here: WWE 2K15 supports modding on PC

WWE 2K15 wasn't the best effort of recent titles in the wrestling series. But, a current hot topic in the games community might change that and make it a better game, at least to some degree. Or, everything's just going ...
