Invisible, Inc.'s tactical espionage action hits Early Access August 19

Invisible, Inc. is going to be one of my obsessions this year. Enough that I am actually going to play a game while it's in Steam Early Access (PC, Mac) rather than waiting for the hard launch. Plus, it will be priced at $16 while in Early Access before bumping up to $20 at launch.

Set aside five minutes for this Witcher 3 footage

An evil force is causing the villagers of Downwarren to sleepwalk into a nearby forest, never to come back, and it's up to Geralt to figure out what's going on. Yesterday's images looked as good as ever but there's no compar...

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor launches November 13

Blizzard has announced a November 13, 2014 release date for its next World of Warcraft expansion, Warlords of Draenor, which features customizable garrisons, better-looking player character models, and, uh, time travel. I know so very little about WoW, but damn do I love me some Blizzard cinematics.

What's Up: Life is Strange, eons of exploration in No Man's Sky, and the many skills of Claptrap

I've been buried in gamescom news this week, but I've surfaced to relay the stories I'm most excited about to you. Life is Strange is an unusual adventure game from the creators of Remember Me. No Man's Sky allegedly would take actual millennium to explore. And we finally see what Claptrap has up his sleeve in Borderlands The Pre-Sequel. Turns out, it's a whole bag of tricks.

Uh, why is that Looney Tunes hole stealing buildings in Donut County

I don't entirely understand Donut County, but I want it. You are the hole that goes from stealing donuts to stealing mountains. It reminds me a bit of Tales from Space: Mutant Blob Attacks, which was good. You, the hole, get bigger every time you swallow something. I am down with this game. It's coming to "home computers & touch devices."
