The BioShock remasters finally get a patch on PC

[Photo by Ginger Troll] A few weeks ago, I spoke about how BioShock Remastered was pretty crappy on PC. 2K had announced it was working on a patch, but never gave out a specific date. Thankfully, the wait for a playable release is now over....   read

Blizzard talks at length about what's in the pipeline for Overwatch

14 minutes of game director Jeff Kaplan discussing the current state of Overwatch and what the development team is working on in the short and longer-term? Yeah, I'm down for that! A not-insignificant amount of the talk covers Symmetra, wh...   read

I've not once dipped into the Arena side of Heroes of the Storm, but perhaps Blizzard's rework of the mode into "Heroes Brawl" later this month will spur change. That, or the gold dangling on a stick (if you participate in three Brawls a w...   read

Stardew Valley adds more farm maps, buildings, and a quest

Stardew Valley is worming its way back into my life. News of a beta update put the farmer-life sim back on my radar last week, and in the days since, I realized that its soundtrack is accessible through Spotify. I've been chilling out to t...   read

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

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
