Steep is throwing an open beta soon

Ubisoft is about to roll out a multi-part beta for Steep, its open-ended snowboarding (and skiing, and wingsuit flying) game, and I'm genuinely curious to dig in after sampling it back at PAX. The dates to remember are coming up soon: Nove...   read

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 takes DBZ gaming to the next level

Ever since my early years, the Dragon Ball franchise has taken a significant part of my life, including its video games. Becoming a huge fan of the series, I played classics such as the Super Butoden games and Dragon Ball Z: The Legend...   read

In Infinite Warfare, it's kill or be killed (and that's how it has always been)

"We like to keep it simple: Kill or be killed." That's how Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's commander guy bluntly explains the battlezone fray, and, by extension, the game's multiplayer happenings. This trailer for the upcoming multiplayer...   read

Paladins will probably do pretty well for itself on consoles

With its open beta newly available on Steam Early Access, Paladins: Champions of the Realm has stepped into the spotlight. This is a team-based shooter from Hi-Rez, the studio behind SMITE and Tribes: Ascend, and I don't think it's unfair ...   read

I've wrestled free of Stardew Valley. I don't know how I got away from the soothing farm life sim, but I did, and I'm hesitant to so much as look at its listing in my Steam library unless I have no obligations left for the day. This isn't a...   read

DICE is tweaking Battlefield 1's Conquest mode

A whole mess of people played the Battlefield 1 beta. 13.2 million, to be more precise. While many of us just used the limited experience to find out if Battlefield's move to WWI was indeed a good one (and to have fun with horse-related hij...   read

Team Ninja has more changes in store for Nioh after the beta

Nioh would've been such a fitting end-of-the-year game for me. Based on everything we know about Team Ninja's brutal action-RPG and what we've played first-hand, I think it's going to be not only a time sink, but one that requires our darn-...   read

Hi-Rez Studios' familiar-looking team shooter Paladins hits open beta

Today marks my first time really looking at Paladins, the new team-based shooter from Smite maker Hi-Rez. So, excuse me if this is well-worn territory by now, but boy does it look familiar. The game comes across as a veritable hodgepodge o...   read

The Behemoth is running a beta for its weird strategy RPG soon

The Behemoth is taking a crack at turn-based strategy with Pit People, a game that, like the studio's prior work (Castle Crashers, BattleBlock Theater), is silly and best played in co-op. One day you won't have to hear it from me -- you'll...   read

I'm definitely going to be keeping an eye on Master X Master
