Review: Corsair VOID Stereo Gaming Headset

Still playing Fallout Shelter? 'Cause it has a whole bunch of new stuff

Fallout Shelter has been out for almost nine months, but it's just now getting its largest update ever. That's probably a good thing for the people who are still playing virtual vault overseer. A little shake-up has to be widely welcom...   read

Namco's Dark Souls mobile spinoff looks like rubbish

Ah, so this is what Bandai Namco trademarked: an endless runner. Some of you were spot on. Slashy Souls is a mobile title made possible in part by GameStop -- a company supposedly "not attempting" to be a publisher -- that will release on A...   read

Fallout Shelter convinced Bethesda to make more mobile games

There's going to be a RuneScape idle game

As far as incremental games go, AdVenture Capitalist was one of the most effective at reeling me in and holding tight. We had such a lovely capture bond for a while there. The team behind that title, Hyper Hippo, is continuing its work in t...   read

Final Fantasy IX is one of my least-played games in the series. I don't really have a good reason for that. Maybe when I was younger, a fantastic tale about a monkey-tailed horndog thief flirting with a princess (and every other woman ...   read
