Sea of Thieves' new update changes a little and fixes a lot

The rough-and-tumble waters of Sea of Thieves are getting a bit more hospitable. Well, not from other players. They'll still kill you right dead. But the game itself keeps getting more and more polished. Rare has released update 1.0.5 ...

State of Decay 2 should really hit the spot

I'm very much looking forward to next month's State of Decay 2, but I know it'll only be a matter of time before the harsh realities of keeping people alive in a zombie-infested sandbox crash down on me. Painful losses are all a part of the...

Sea of Thieves update addresses stalemates and griefing

Today's update for Sea of Thieves targets a problem I've run into quite a few times now: stalemates. If your crew has ever set sail toward a skull fort in hopes of stockpiling loads of treasure, you've more than likely encountered other shi...

Rare drops its planned 'death cost' for Sea of Thieves

Rare planned to introduce a "small gold fee" for dying in Sea of Thieves, a change that didn't sit well with many players. The idea was that you'd be dinged for dying out in the world to skeletons or sharks, not against other players, and t...

Review: Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves is proving to be a divisive game. During my review-in-progress, I said that I fell in the middle of the pack: somewhere between the folks who find Rare's shared-world pirate adventure dreadfully boring and those who feel it's...

Review in Progress: Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves has an amazing foundation. That's clear from the outside looking in, and the feeling washes over you the first time you board your ship, chart a course, raise the anchor, lower the sails, and set off adventuring in a shared w...

State of Decay 2 hits Xbox One and Windows 10 in May for $30

State of Decay 2 has secured a May 22, 2018 launch for Xbox One and Windows 10. That still-a-ways-out release date is to be expected given that we haven't heard much about the co-op zombie survival title as of late, but the price point is a...

The Sea of Thieves beta is back for the weekend

It's almost March, and that means it's almost time for Rare's shared-world pirate adventure game Sea of Thieves. If yesterday's look at skeleton forts left you counting the days until March 20, some good news: there's another chance to mess...

That's one way to dodge a cannonball

Sea of Thieves is in beta right now (and it just got extended a few days) and that means all sorts of weird things can happen while developer Rare works out the kinks. For a lot of people, that means boring and frustrating stuff like ...

Sea of Thieves beta extended as players face technical issues

For some players, it's been a real challenge getting the Sea of Thieves beta to cooperate. There have been issues with the game mistakenly saying it's "too early" to play and locking folks out, and I've had (probably Windows 10-related) pro...

State of Decay 2 is still on for a spring release

Along with Sea of Thieves (and let's be honest, plenty more PUBG), State of Decay 2 is one of the cooperative games I'm most looking forward to this year. Undead Labs and Microsoft Studios have been fairly quiet about the zombie survival ga...

Rare talks progression and quests in Sea of Thieves

I'm on board with Sea of Thieves. I have been for some time now. But there's still one question hampering my excitement for Rare's multiplayer pirate adventure: how long will it last? Long-term player progression and motivation has been a c...

This Sea of Thieves trailer is a good refresher

While Rare has invited folks to test out its shared-world pirate adventure title Sea of Thieves and the studio regularly posts video updates detailing its progress, if you aren't going out of your way to stay current, the game's release mig...
