Look at this big-ass Battletoad in Grounded!

As Obsidian so poignantly points out, if you're waiting for the biggest game of the year, look no further than Cyberpunk 2077. Grounded, however, is the smallest. This new trailer shows off a lot of the arachnophobic Honey, I Shrunk The Ki...

The Outer Worlds Switch will 'target' 30FPS, 1080p docked

Stop me if you've seen this before. A big-name game launches simultaneously for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, with a Switch edition "coming later." Given the reputation some games have as a "poor Switch port," some publishers really want to get it ...

Obsidian's Grounded gets a public demo in June

You always want to test drive a car before you buy it. Take it around the block, get a feel for how it moves, kick the tires a few times. You'll have that opportunity with Obsidian's Grounded, but this test drive mostly serves to clear up s...

If you aren't ready to leave Parvati and [your second-favorite companion] behind, heads up: Obsidian is working on DLC for The Outer Worlds – the good kind, I mean. The story-centric kind. "To all of those who voted for us in The Game...

The Outer Worlds now has a font size option

The Outer Worlds and Death Stranding are two games I'm very into right now, but they both contain lots of little words that can be a struggle to make out. I can't imagine what it's been like for folks playing on a responsible-human-sized TV...
