Doom's next update has a neat feature that's a callback to the original game

Doom did what most people thought was impossible when it captured the essence of the 1993 game and adapted it to 2016 standards. It was an undertaking that seemed preordained to fall flat, but id Software did an incredible job making D...   read

Fallout 4 beta update brings roadsigns and meat bags to settlements

If there's one thing I've always felt my settlements in Fallout 4 were missing, it was a mishmash of dismembered bodies hastily lashed together in a wire mesh and hung off the highest barricade to intimidate my foes. Also, delightful road s...   read

Firewatch's PS4 patch is live, makes things much better

Playing Firewatch last week was quite the polarizing experience for me. I loved a lot of individual components -- specifically the interactions between Hank and Delilah -- but I really didn't like the game as a whole. Something ab...   read

First Rise of the Tomb Raider PC patch mostly just makes sure you can go 'sploring

Rise of the Tomb Raider is quite the good showing from Crystal Dynamics. Good enough, in fact, that we awarded it our Best Xbox Game of 2015. But, when we put it through its paces on PC, we found performance to be lacking, not up to th...   read

The Witcher 3 patch 1.12 smashes Hearts of Stone bugs

There's a lot to peruse in this 1.12 patch-notes-filled The Witcher 3 PDF. Much of it has to do with the new-ish Hearts of Stone expansion and fixing bugs therein, but rest assured that this patch isn't 15gb (a much more reasonable 1.4gb) a...   read

Valve is undoing weapon tweaks that broke Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a finely tuned, tightly balanced game. While on the whole that’s a good thing, it does make the game a house of cards: when things go even slightly wrong it can throw the entire game out and make a ...   read

There's a Fallout 4 patch hitting PC next week

There's a ton of stuff coming to Rock Band 4 in December, including Rock Band 3
