Review: Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

Billie Lurk is tired. By the time she takes Dishonored: Death of the Outsider's lead role, the street urchin-turned-assassin has fought harder and lost more than most. Lurk's actions have shaken the world's foundation; with the single flick...

New Prey update targets screen-tearing and stuttering on PS4

Prey has been sitting comfortably on my to-play list. I'm confident I'll like it, but I'm also certain I don't have much patience for weird technical woes and pesky bugs. Arkane has been working to get the game to a better place, and today'...

Prey was going to let players fly wherever they wanted

When we reviewed Prey, we praised (ha!) its open structure. Arkane created an environment where it's possible to do nearly anything and to go nearly anywhere. The Gloo Cannon is an essential tool to this end, as it allows for free-form trav...

Review: Prey

The heart of Prey isn't in an obvious place. It isn't in its scientific moral quandary or its inky aliens or its ever-escalating plot. It isn't in its retconned 1960s history that serves to justify this research center or in its numero...

Review in Progress: Prey

Prey has me shook. I've seen plenty of aliens and they're all intimidating, but at least they're an obvious threat. It's the ones I can't see that have me paranoid, inching closer to a desk that could very well be just a regular desk. ...

How to get unlimited skill points in Prey

Neuromods are the lifeblood of Prey. The whole reason the TranStar Corporation refitted the game's abandoned space station into a research facility was in pursuit of neuroscience. Scientific breakthroughs led to the development of Neuromod...

Your PC shouldn't go into system shock trying to run Prey

Getting to Talos-I, the moon-orbiting space station in Prey, won't require a bunch of rocket fuel or alien technology. Nothing too powerful is needed to travel there, just the same rig that can run a bunch of other games. Alongside today's ...

Still curious about Prey? Play the first hour now

Look at that headline up there, being all coy about your feelings on Prey. Like it doesn't know that most everyone who has followed its development isn't curious about it to some degree. There are two realistic camps right now: People who ...

Here's some of the cool combat stuff you can do in Prey

On a space station overrun with aliens, the easy solution is to constantly use guns until the alien problem is no longer a problem. Just blast away until everything stops moving. Our video game training should have us well-prepared for thi...

Let's watch a long-ass Prey gameplay video

Actually, that headline's kind of disingenuous. You see, I am intentionally not going to watch this long-ass Prey video. Still, I'm posting it without any sort of vetting process. There could be hardcore porn spliced right into t...

Prey gets a soonish release date and a new trailer

The stories behind some games are just crazy. What began life as a direct sequel to Prey has now been rebranded as some totally different, yet still somewhat cool looking, sci-fi game. I'm not sure why Prey was chosen for this kind of exper...
