After six years, Star Trek Online releases its most sought-after starship

Normally, it's not news when Star Trek Online releases a new playable starship. After all, over six years in operation Cryptic's Trek-themed MMO has added hundreds of ships to shoot aliens with. However, this is no normal ship. It's th...   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

AdVenture Capitalist is setting up shop on PS4

As far as games about making progress for the sake of progress go, AdVenture Capitalist does the trick. That's not exactly an endorsement -- and in fact I would specifically recommend not playing it or other idle/clicker games, for the sak...   read

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

This happened last week, so it's not news, but since I also feel like driving my car through the ostentatious glass walls of several institutions just for the moment of ecstasy as the sun shines brilliantly against a billion pieces of shatt...   read

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

I don't know anything about Warframe, other than people really like it. I've been meaning to try it one day, but that day has yet to come. It's free-to-play nature, which is evidently not too intrusive, has garnered a rather big following a...   read
