Steam's most-played games of 2016 weren't released in 2016

Atop Steam's daily most-played list sits an unimpeachable handful of games. There are newcomers on occasion and that temporarily shakes things up. But, if you go back day after day and year after year, the same popular games never fall out ...   read

Tales of Berseria PC version will use Denuvo, which Bandai says is not disruptive

The idea of Japanese role-playing games releasing day one on PC is still pretty foreign to me, so I had forgotten Tales of Berseria  was doing just that. It's a good trend, but the bad news for some is that it will use Denuvo, Bandai N...   read

The best games of 2016 you didn't play

I said it about 2015 and I feel as if it's even more true of 2016: this was a great year to play video games. The general landscape of the industry seems to be trending in a positive direction, with more and more things to love. However it'...   read

More games on Steam doesn't mean more money for Valve

Steam saw an unprecedented influx of new games in 2016. Of all the titles added to the distribution service since its 2003 launch, 38 percent of them were added last year. Many of those games are very bad, sure, but there's no questioning t...   read

Review: HoPiKo

Have you ever wondered why a lot of modern platforming games have nothing to do with platform jumping? While I appreciate the amount of diversity that exists within the genre, why are most of the obstacles usually enemies instead of the lev...   read

Some of Codemasters' racing games have been delisted from Steam

In the digital era of games, not everything lasts forever. As crazy as it may sound, sometimes licenses for cars, music, or product placements end up rendering a game unsellable after a certain date. It looks like that has come to pass for ...   read

The winners for the first ever Steam awards are...interesting

I guess it's good that a lot of old games are getting their due with the 2016 (and first ever) Steam awards, but so much of is retreading on stuff we've already talked about many, many times, that they're only really worth skimming for a se...   read

25 reasons you need the 75-cent Doge game Montaro

Montaro is not a very good game, but had it been released in 1988 it would have been game of the year. Now, before you say this would be true of every disgusting game you own, Montaro is so simplistic that it could have been made on 1988-er...   read

Review: Space Hulk: Deathwing

Despite being a big tabletop gamer, I don't have any particular affinity for Warhammer 40K. Like most people, I found Space Marine to be an entertaining (if shallow) dalliance with the universe, but I never was able to shake the fact that I...   read
