Some lunatic hit level 4,000 in Overwatch

Most anyone who has played Overwatch knows that it can quickly turn into quite the time-sink. Committed players start chasing victories, competitive rankings, and loot boxes. The hours can really pile up. One person is the new standard...

Skyrim's Survival mode is free this week

In late August, Bethesda's paid mod system (Creation Club) went into beta for Fallout 4. Even though the publisher gave people $1 worth of credits to play around with, the program was largely met with derision. Most of the mods were overpri...

So, is Cuphead tough enough for ya?

Last week was very stressful for me. I had 48-ish hours to play and review Cuphead. Tight deadlines suck, but they extra super duper suck when a game is difficult. Just throwing enough hours at most triple-A titles will usually get you thro...

Review: Cuphead

Beating Cuphead should come with a complimentary Mensa membership. It's a tough game, but Cuphead's difficulty lies more in exhaustive pattern recognition than anywhere else. Reactive shooting and jumping only go so far. Eventuall...

Gone Home headlines October's Xbox Games with Gold

Strolls, not spooks, are the theme for October's Games with Gold on Xbox. Halloween would be the easy and obvious route, but next month's freebies for Xbox Live Gold subscribers mostly ignore that. Well, big deserted houses can be kind of ...

The video game voice actor strike is (tentatively) over

For nearly a year now, SAG-affiliated video game voice actors have been on strike. Last September, 97% of members voted for a work stoppage if a new contract wasn't established. It wasn't, and the strike began in late October. Since then, m...

We're getting some Red Dead Redemption 2 news next week

News about impending news is arguably some of the worst that video game press has to offer. Lacking in any real substance, our hands are tied to the point where all we can do is to say "here's when you'll learn a thing." And we pass on that...

Mario + Rabbids is the Switch's best-selling third-party game

Contrary to what we've been led to believe, the Rabbids are perfectly welcome in the Mushroom Kingdom. Their invasion hasn't been chaotic and destructive, but prosperous instead. Turns out merging the two wasn't a bad idea at all. According...

Grab Outlast for free through Humble right now

It's too early for the spooky season, seeing as how autumn doesn't even technically start until tomorrow. And it's really not close to Halloween considering that's at the end of October. This promotion doesn't make a ton of seasonal sense, ...

Phil Spencer is movin' on up at Microsoft

Xbox head Phil Spencer has received plenty of praise over the past few years for the way that the Xbox One has changed under his leadership. It's not just external parties who have taken notice. Microsoft just rewarded Spencer in a big way....

GOG has another huge sale, and we have 460 games to give away

GOG's really making a splash in the PC sales market. Steam normally has this area cornered, but GOG has earned a reputation for itself lately for throwing big and relatively-frequent sales events. Another one is underway right now. GOG's Bi...

Review: Atomega

Atomega is devilishly simple. Its premise and its gameplay loop are exactly the same: Get big so you can get bigger. It's a race to the top of the food chain. There isn't anything to overthink. Sometimes less is more. But, sometimes mo...
