Two Worlds II gets an extremely tardy add-on next month

One of the more surprising under-the-radar stories of last year was that developer Reality Pump was working on DLC for Two Worlds II. It wasn't so much a shock that a game was getting supplemental content -- that has become a near-staple of...   read

Here's our first big look at the new Micro Machines

Size is relative. That's the concept at the core of the magic of Micro Machines. Try to stick with me: Cars are usually big, but this time they're very small and that's fun. It sounds condescending but it's honestly not meant to be. There'...   read

After 19 years, StarCraft has gone free-to-play

StarCraft originally released on March 31, 1998. It's tough to write about a game that's nearly 20 years old without it sounding like an obituary. StarCraft's legacy is probably already set in stone; at the very least it's a benchmark...   read

I've run out of good headlines, but this is a call for Podtoid questions

Go ahead and look through our Podtoid Questions tag. There's some real good stuff in there, and I can't top most of it right now. I could've said "Let's chat" or some lazy-ass shit like that, but that's a Total Steven Move. If nothing else...   read

We're probably done hearing about Scorpio until E3

It's hot stove season for video games -- that time right before any major E3-related announcements happen where everyone's left to speculate what major E3-related announcements will happen. Microsoft fueled the fire a bit last week wit...   read

Bethesda's letting console users play the first hour of Prey before release

11 bit coined the term 'society survival' to describe its new game Frostpunk
