Time to get sucked back into Stardew Valley

I've wrestled free of Stardew Valley. I don't know how I got away from the soothing farm life sim, but I did, and I'm hesitant to so much as look at its listing in my Steam library unless I have no obligations left for the day. This isn't a...   read

Tribes: Ascend gets a final patch and unofficial goodbye

[Header courtesy of Steam user Apoc Hedgie] Tribes 2 was one of my favorite games as a pre-teen. I would wake up super early so I could get some uninterrupted play in on my dial-up modem. That is a piece of technology I haven't thought abou...   read

Subnautica has more monsters for us to avoid

Yikes! I prefer to play Subnautica as a serene underwater exploration type of experience, but sometimes, the Early Access game has other ideas in mind for my lone survivor. Sometimes, there are horrible nightmare beasts, and you don't have...   read

Rocket League channels BioShock for its next update

Let me pitch you something: Cars playing soccer, but under the sea. Sounds pretty okay, right? That's what Rocket League has in store for its next update. Psyonix leans hard into the BioShock aesthetic for its AquaDome map. That ...   read

Orcs Must Die! Unchained is dropping PvP to focus on Survival

I loved Orcs Must Die! and its sequel. I haven't played Orcs Must Die! Unchained, the third game in the trap-laying, crossbow-firing tower defense series, and I get the sense that I'm hardly alone. The player-versus-player focus combined wi...   read

Fixes are coming for BioShock Remastered on PC

When I took a look at the BioShock remasters on PC this past weekend, I was pretty disappointed. Instability, a lack of graphics options, and poorly implemented mouse controls were all present and accounted for. The only real plus was that ...   read

CD Projekt isn't planning a PS4 Pro patch for The Witcher 3

I'm not expecting every big PlayStation 4 release to end up with a patch enabling it to take advantage of the PS4 Pro's more powerful hardware, but it is surprising to hear that a hugely successful game like The Witcher 3 -- a title that ha...   read

Rocksmith 2014 Remastered to release in 2016

Ubisoft has announced that Rocksmith 2014 Edition - Remastered will be releasing on October 4, 2016. No, that isn't some weird typo; a game with 2014 in the title will be released in 2016. While that certainly would be confusing for mo...   read

Overwatch's new castle map Eichenwalde is smaller than you'd think
