One of 2015's lowkey best games is getting better

I liked Kingdom a lot when I reviewed it last year. It's a gorgeous building game that is incredibly simple to play (movement aside, there is only one button) that belies its discoverable depth, even if I took issue with the late game. But...   read

(Update) Pokemon Go update adds tracking for some players

[Update: Turns out Niantic wasn't joking about the tracking test being for a subset of users as the below video demonstrates a new system that many players in San Fransico and some other major cities are seeing. On top of the new sightings ...   read

No Man's Sky's day one patch almost sounds like a new game

These days it's not uncommon for a big game to have a day one patch that irons out some odd bugs or even activates a feature or two, but it's still a rare thing to have a doozy like the one planned for No Man's Sky's opening day.  In a...   read

With the PC patch already taken care of, Blizzard has now added Ana, Overwatch's new sniping support character, to the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (though not without some bugs). The full list of changes should look familiar if you c...   read

Today's Furi patch addresses noisy PS4 fans and bugs

I need to give Dangerous Golf another look thanks to this update

I was very much on board with the idea of Dangerous Golf and its silly sports-based mayhem, but the experience of actually playing it, as described in Steven's review, was enough to put me off. With today's patch on all platforms, however, ...   read

Review: Street Fighter V: A Shadow Falls

I’m sure it’s difficult to write a compelling story mode for a fighting game. First, you start with a cast of disparate oddballs, karate-wizards and leggy Interpol agents, each with odd backstories that you have to find a way to...   read

Alienation adds four-player local co-op next week

I am so down with Housemarque's twin-stick shooter Alienation, and I bet if you played it, you would be too. The game's lack of local co-op has understandably kept some folks away, but the studio is addressing that omission with an update n...   read

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

I think the Arland trilogys on sale on Vita currently and people have been promoting it a bit on here, so why not give you some more reason to consider it? Those games are lovely and so are their soundtracks!
