Hangar 13 has a Mafia III patch out and says it isn't done 'improving the game'

Mafia III wasn't the critical darling that 2K was surely hoping for, but it is selling, and that gives developer Hangar 13 more of a chance to tidy up and support the game with free content additions into the future. We're getting a little ...   read

Ubisoft gives us a first look at The Division's Survival add-on

It's the middle of New York City, but it certainly doesn't look it. With all that inclement weather and desperation, this is more akin to the Antarctic research station from The Thing. And, staying alive through the night is an equally unc...   read

GTA Online brings the fight to the Game Grid with Tron-like lightcycle battles

The newest update to GTA Online doesn't carry the general vibe most people associate with Grand Theft Auto. This is more futuristic, more surreal, more Tron. Oops! (Listen, we all know it's Tron but don't call it Tron, alright? W...   read

Red Dead Redemption 2 teaser teases and not much else

Did you blink? The follow up to one of the best games of 2010, if not the decade, showed little beyond environments in its first trailer. Reminiscent of the first Grand Theft Auto V trailer which didn't explicitly tell us much, this trailer...   read

Watch Dogs 2 will be two weeks late on PC

Time has taught me not to expect day-and-date parity between console and PC versions of Ubisoft games, so it's not exactly unexpected to hear Watch Dogs 2 is facing that same situation. The PC version is now aiming for November 29, 2016, tw...   read

Review: Mafia III

As I played Mafia III, I found myself thinking more and more about Assassin's Creed. Not the Assassin's Creed of today -- a series overrun with options and bloat -- but the original game. The trigger for my recollection is because Mafi...   read

This glitch makes all of ReCore's toughest challenges simple, and it requires visiting a dungeon that's not even supposed to be there

ReCore's optional dungeons are the purest parts of the game. They're self-contained challenges that put an emphasis on platforming, combat, or exploration. These are the three core tenets of the whole game, but these dungeons' lean nat...   read

Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience is out, not definitive

Look, Konami doesn't have a lot of options. It's a bad place to work, and its most creative talent was loyal for much longer than necessary. So we're getting Metal Gear Survive, to re-use some assets and try to make some money. Also releas...   read

Review in Progress: Mafia III

Mafia III begins with protagonist Lincoln Clay playing a part in a grand heist. It's not something we haven't seen before in video games, but it still feels kind of unexpected. This game's predecessor, Mafia II, spent far too much time...   read

Fuck up the KKK in Mafia 3

A lot of games have let us dispense of nazis with hot-leaded-justice, but what about groups that have since perpetuated the Nazi's occult-lunacy-derived racial superiority? Sure, the KKK existed before the Nazis, but Mafia 3 is set in 1968...   read
