You can try out Evolve's new co-op mode right now

Evolve has had a complicated history since it launched in February of 2015. The concept is fascinating, sort of a cross between the best parts of Monster Hunter and Left 4 Dead, but somehow it never really shook out that way ...   read

Perhaps unsurprisingly, The Tomorrow Children will be free-to-play

The multiple beta tests for The Tomorrow Children have totally messed with my sense of how far along the game actually is and when it's coming out. Much sooner than I would have thought, it turns out! The PlayStation 4 game will first launc...   read

Behold Star Trek Online's console UI

Generally speaking, it's a good thing when a game is made available on both PC and console. Then again, it's not always an easy or smooth process, getting a game from one platform dynamic to the other, and many players are justifiably wary ...   read

Man rams car into game studio for 'ruining his life'

Review: Hawken

Hawken is a game I keep checking back in on. When it originally released back in 2012, it seemed ahead of its time, a free-to-play shooter with AAA production values featuring mech combat. For someone who is both cheap and a mech fan, it wa...   read

Warframe is adding a Quidditch-looking sports mode
