Job Simulator scores a free endless mode

Finally, a reason to revisit the excellent albeit fleeting Job Simulator. This slapstick virtual reality game is one of the first things I recommend new VR owners check out, but once you've gone through it a few times, there's not much ince...

Why Elite Dangerous is my nightly holiday

The other day I spent a couple of hours at work reading about sailboats. Like a ten-year-old with a new fascination after discovering Treasure Island or some other seafaring fantasy, I was obsessing over famous ships from the past, and the ...

Review in Progress: Gran Turismo Sport

Once upon a time, Gran Turismo was the undisputed champion of console racing simulators. It paved the way for many of the features we take for granted in modern racing games and developer Polyphony Digital has always striven to be at the to...

Q-Games is bringing Dead Hungry to PlayStation VR

I'll follow Q-Games wherever it goes, even if that means manning a food truck overrun by zombies. Dead Hungry, a game about cooking burgers and feeding the undead, launched late last year on Steam. Now, the virtual reality title is headed t...

Stardew Valley is 'approved' for Nintendo Switch

If there's one game I'd really appreciate having on my Switch right now (aside from Mario Odyssey), it's got to be Stardew Valley. Even just thinking about the laid-back farming sim puts my mind at ease. Switch owners have been yearning for...

Go green in Cities: Skylines expansion later this year

Aside from traffic, garbage is by far the biggest issue I've run into in Cities: Skylines. No matter how strategically I try to place landfills and incinerators, I always feel like I have an overabundance of pollution and too many garb...

Review: Dino Frontier

Any game that sincerely and repeatedly refers to you as "Big Mayor" is my kinda game. Following its PlayStation VR launch title Wayward Sky, Uber Entertainment is back with another virtual reality romp -- one that's just as charming if not ...

Experience a blast to the past with new Planet Coaster DLC

Since our own Patrick Hancock reviewed Planet Coaster last winter, the game seemed to fall off the radar. While the spotlight was off of them, the team has been hard at work, constantly adding new features and items to the already good game...

My Time At Portia might be my next obsession

There's something about games like Harvest Moon that really grabs me. Do a little farming, hang out with my neighbors; it's a relaxing escape. Just last year I lost a good six-month span of being productive to a little game called Stardew V...

The Escapists 2 tunnels out in late August

The Escapists 2 doesn't have time to wait for a parole hearing. It's bustin' out of this joint soon, blowin' this popsicle stand. Live free or die trying. On August 22, prison escape simulator The Escapists 2 releases on PC, PS4,...

Wild West settlement builder Dino Frontier is out August 1

I was immediately on board with Dino Frontier, a game that tasks you with raising up a settlement of humans and dinosaurs in the Wild West. It's such a fun idea. You play as Big Mayor, watching over and interacting with your citizens from o...

Review: Elite Dangerous

The other day my son came downstairs long after bedtime. He didn’t want a drink of water or another story; he heard me jumping into hyperspace and wanted to watch. At three he is already a space nut who can name every planet in our so...

Tracks: The Train Set Game announced for Early Access

When I was a young boy, some of my fondest memories were playing with my wooden Thomas the Tank Engine railroad toys. As I grew older, I turned to various video games to try and scratch that nostalgia itch, with no success. However, it woul...

PSA: Chroma Squad is out on PS4 and Xbox One

It's time for us to pose in front of a colorful explosion, as Chroma Squad makes its debut on the PS4 and Xbox One. While there were some casualties with the game's Vita version, this won't stop Behold Studios' tokusatsu (live-action s...

Mass Transit makes Cities: Skylines even more beautiful

I feel like Cities: Skylines has just the right amount of complexity. I recently went back to Sim City 2000 by comparison (which holds up!), and was taken aback by how much I had to divine (or remember) on my own. Not that it's a ...

Surviving Mars isn't afraid to let you die on the red planet

Space used to be the place, but in recent years our collective focus has narrowed to Mars. It's likely that enough teens stricken with the millennium bug spent the year 2000 exchanging heavy pets in suburban movie theatres, subliminally ass...

I run into a lot of people who trust YouTubers and influencers more than they do the traditional media I understand that, but check it out: guess who EA flew in to test Battlefront 2s systems before launch? Where were your buddies then?
