Serious Sam VR drops soon on Steam

Before watching this trailer, I imagined what Serious Sam might look like in VR. I pictured a headless, shirtless, screaming kamikaze man rushing toward me, and that's literally what the video depicts. Glad we're on the same page! I'm also...

This RoboCop mod ensures I'll play The Talos Principle

Darren's review of The Talos Principle intrigued me. Even if the game had turned out poorly, a philosophical puzzler from the studio behind Serious Sam was something I just had to see. Fortunately, it's good. Eight-out-of-ten good. But I wo...

The Talos Principle makes me feel smart and dumb

Back at E3 2014, I got a brief chance to get my hands on The Talos Principle while talking to one of its writers Tom Jubert (FTL: Faster Than Light, The Swapper). In the presentation, Jubert explained the intended approach to discussing phi...
