Dang, XCOM 2 is only $12 in this Humble Monthly deal

Yesterday's news of the Long War 2 mod reminded me that I failed to snag XCOM 2 at launch and, dumber yet, while it was discounted in recent end-of-year sales. But actually, that indecisiveness has paid off -- the alien-blastin', bad-luck-c...   read

Poland joins Civilization VI and it's here to steal your tiles

Ah, Civilization VI. The game I love and, thankfully (for the sake of my free time and general well-being), I keep forgetting I have installed. "Don't believe its lies. It will eat your weekend." The so-called Winter 2016 Update is out thi...   read

2K's NBA VR game reminds me of the early Wii days

My experiences with virtual reality have reinforced the idea that these games are (almost always) better in person than they appear in trailers. For the longest time, Rigs: Mechanized Combat League seemed over-the-top cheesy and easy to wr...   read

Hangar 13 has a Mafia III patch out and says it isn't done 'improving the game'

Mafia III wasn't the critical darling that 2K was surely hoping for, but it is selling, and that gives developer Hangar 13 more of a chance to tidy up and support the game with free content additions into the future. We're getting a little ...   read

Turtle Rock Studios is done with Evolve, but it'll stay online 'for the foreseeable future'

Evolve had a rush of buzz going for it pre-release, but the four-on-one monster-shooting game was never quite able to bring in -- and, crucially, hold onto -- players to the extent that developer Turtle Rock Studios and publisher 2K hoped a...   read

Review: WWE 2K17

Look, I don't know what I expected. Whenever I talk to fellow pro wrestling fans about the WWE games, they often grimace before offering a handful of excuses. "It's not as bad as last year's" is a favorite refrain, although it rings hollow ...   read

Good luck getting past Gandhi in Civilization VI

For years, Mahatma Gandhi has struck fear in the hearts of Civilization players as a nuke-amassing warlord. He seems like a pleasant-enough guy at first -- someone who doesn't resort to violence, much less violence on a nuclear scale -- bu...   read
