Warface is jumping on the battle royale craze

Remember Warface? When Crytek launched the game a few years ago in the Russian market, I remember the company saying they were done with triple-A development and that free-to-play was the future. I'm not sure if that still rings true for th...

Review: Redeemer

Revenge plots are overused in our media. I’m sure off the top of your head, you could come up with about 15-20 films that have a character going on a vengeance streak for the wrongs done against them. You could probably also name a ha...

Russia fears Pokemon Go is a CIA psyop to destabilize country

Playing Pokemon Go in Russia could land you in jail. The country is not taking well to Niantic and Nintendo's global hit. The Moscow City Hall is even trying to substitute Pokemon Go fever with its own knockoff app about "catching" historic...

Steam's summer sale is apparently coming June 11

On a dark, humid night, you hear it. Slowly, it creeps towards you – clink. Clink. Clink. It sounds inhuman. You close your eyes, hoping the thing won’t find you… but it does. It always does. You can feel its ice cold bre...

 
 
Amiibo photo

amiibo is apparently compatible with Moscow's subway system

[Update: Our Russian friends in the comments are reporting that the people in the video are saying that the Samus Amiibo doesn't work with the Moscow Subway. I guess in Soviet Russia, green means stop and red means go.] Like this trailer f...

Russia brands Sims 4 18+ because of same-sex relationships

Look, The Sims can get villainous. You play god and can deprive a simulated individual of basic necessities or trap them in a swimming pool or whatever. But Adults Only? Due to a backwards 2012 law that restricts the promotion of same-sex r...

This trailer for Warside doesn't let up for a second

Talk about intense! D'you think the players in this trailer for Warside ever take their finger off the firing button? When I first started watching the trailer above, I initially though this was a 2D platformer/shooter in the vein of eithe...

Russia's budget-friendy, live-action PS All-Stars ad

I actually prefer this Russian live-action advertisement for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (via All Games Beta) over the short we recently got to see. While it is clearly lacking in production values, the commercial more than makes u...

Dishonored region-locked in Russia, just like Borderlands

Eastern European gamers are being diddled again, this time by Bethesda. Hot off the heels of Borderlands 2's controversial Russian-version region lock, it's become apparent that Dishonored is also using a locked version in Eastern European ...
