League of Legends' Xayah and Rakan are an unconventional duo

In an interesting turn, Riot Games has released two heroes at once this week in League of Legends, and they're intrinsically connected. Billed as "birds of a feather," Xayah and Rakan are lovers, and sport several promotions, like the abili...   read

Twitch is going to allow you to sort League of Legends streams by skill

Sorting through scores of League of Legends channels (one of the most popular Twitch games for years running) can be really off-putting, but Riot is making strides to change that as of this week. The publisher, alongside of Twitch, has...   read

Review: Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality

I don't know how I stumbled upon Rick & Morty, but I'm glad I did. More so, I'm glad it's getting a decent amount of play considering how bleak it is, and that it's branching out into more than just one series that we have to wait forev...   read

Super Rude Bear Resurrection jumps to life in early May

Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a game that we've had our eye on for quite a while now. We got our first proper look at Tokyo Game Show in 2015 and were quite impressed. Super Rude Bear Resurrection's one-two punch of insanely tough p...   read

Review: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III

I've been playing Warhammer tabletop for nearly 20 years, and I've seen what feels like hundreds of games based on the property come and go. Some stick with me, like Total War: Warhammer. Others fall by the wayside and are forgotten like Fi...   read

The composer of Jet Set Radio has new music for Hover

Two years ago, the future-set parkour game Hover: Revolt of Gamers rolled onto Steam Early Access, and to this day, it's still a work-in-progress on the platform. One of the things that put the project on my radar back when it was seeking K...   read

Terraria now has 4K support on PC

Another Terraria update? It's as if someone dared the developers to execute the best post-release support in the industry, and now they just won't back down. Seriously though, good on 'em! Today's PC update is less about content (though you...   read

Watching Double Fine make games is fascinating as ever

Double Fine is in the midst of Amnesia Fortnight 2017. If you're anything like me, these game jams are less about the end result -- four playable prototypes, some of which were ideas voted on and chosen by the public -- and more about the j...   read

Assassin's Creed players are gathering to resuscitate the long-dead multiplayer

One of the oft-overlooked aspects of the Assassin's Creed series is the competitive multiplayer. Brotherhood was the first installment to introduce it, and it was really great. Tricking other players and blending into the environm...   read

Episode four of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier lands Tuesday

Telltale is picking up the pace for the next episode of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier. Episode four, Thicker Than Water, will be out on Tuesday, April 25. That's a much more manageable wait, I'd say, considering the last installment only...   read

Relic releases a dev diary for Dawn of War III ahead of its open beta

I get the feeling that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III is going to be divisive to the fan base. A lot of people seem to be complaining about a supposed "dumbing down" of mechanics or how there isn't anything new on offer. I don't necessar...   read

Cities: Skylines - Mass Transit gives us sweet zeppelin action on May 18

I have been playing city-management sims throughout my life, and despite that fact, nothing I have created in them can be considered either efficient or beautiful. I shamelessly blame my inability to do so on growing up in a region that cou...   read

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment dated on Wii U and 3DS

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is a fantastic expansion, and previous owners of the base game are getting it for free. The only problem is that given the (likely lucrative) timed exclusive deal with Nintendo, developer Yacht Club Ga...   read

Castlevania-inspired roguelike Dead Cells hits Steam soon

Before long, Dead Cells will be doing its hybridized roguelike/metroidvania thing on Steam Early Access, and as much as that's the type of "die, die, die again" gameplay concept I'd rather wait on than attempt to play in an unfinished stat...   read

Here's our first big look at the new Micro Machines

Size is relative. That's the concept at the core of the magic of Micro Machines. Try to stick with me: Cars are usually big, but this time they're very small and that's fun. It sounds condescending but it's honestly not meant to be. There'...   read

After 19 years, StarCraft has gone free-to-play

StarCraft originally released on March 31, 1998. It's tough to write about a game that's nearly 20 years old without it sounding like an obituary. StarCraft's legacy is probably already set in stone; at the very least it's a benchmark...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare: Continuum

Although most people don't keep an eye out for Call of Duty DLC, Infinite Warfare's first pack, Sabotage, arguably topped the main game. It delivered a Jason-esque camp theme for its stellar zombie mode, and managed to nicely balance t...   read

Review: Full Throttle Remastered
