Review: Fallout 4: Far Harbor

Fallout 3's Point Lookout is one of my favorite pieces of DLC. The trip from the heavily urbanized core of Washington, D.C. to some backwater swamps off the coast of Maryland encapsulated everything I loved about Fallout. There were strange...   read

Fallout 4's Far Harbor DLC is having major performance issues on PS4

Bethesda's first major expansion for Fallout 4, Far Harbor, is having some real frame rate problems on the PS4. Almost the entire outdoor landmass of the new content plays below 20 FPS, like one big pre-patch Corvega factory. The culprit se...   read

Seven is an open world filled with loot and potential

I shouldn't like Seven as much as I did. The RPG comes from some of the guys behind The Witcher 3, a game that never really hooked me, and was heavily inspired by Thief, a game I'm terrible at. I don't know how they did it, but Imgn.pro and...   read

Mafia III devs want driving to have that 'Steve McQueen movie feeling'

A new 2K-released video about Mafia III details the developers' intentions with regard to driving. The very first words are "In Mafia III, we're trying to achieve something we're calling 'Hollywood action driving.'" The direction is c...   read

Fallout 4 is getting mods on consoles starting in May

Oh, right! Bethesda is planning to support mods in Fallout 4 on consoles. That'll happen sometime in May for Xbox One, and then in June for PlayStation 4, the studio has announced. PC players can mess around with the Creation Kit now while...   read

Severed continues to look rad as hell in its final release trailer

Never thought I'd be excited about a Vita release in 2016, but Severed, the latest title from the developers of Guacamelee! is just about the coolest thing I've seen in months. Described as a mix of Mega Man, Infinity Blade, and Punch-...   read

Mirror's Edge Catalyst: Free-running versus errand running

I can't remember a single character from the original Mirror's Edge, a game I love a lot. DICE's (Battlefield) unexpected cult hit, now eight years old, was laudable. The first-person perspective offered a refined, grounded feel when so man...   read

Red Dead Redemption 2 is huge, looks like a prequel story

Much of Red Dead Redemption's theme owes itself to its setting, not in the heyday of cowboy-ism, but nearer to the end of Manifest Destiny. It's why John Marston is working for government men in the first place. But it looks like Rockstar's...   read

Far Cry Primal adds Survivor Mode and 4K textures

A hella-of-a-lot of video games came out yesterday, from Dark Souls III to Ratchet & Clank, but perhaps you're short on cash, barely making rent, waiting on a tax refund (or, in my case, owe the IRS way too much). Maybe you want to take...   read

Some worrying news came out of the Incursions update to The Division yesterday. A good handful of folks playing on Xbox One logged in to find that their characters were missing, seemingly mysteriously deleted. It's unknown what percent...   read

Review: Fallout 4: Wasteland Workshop

I'm assuming I'm the exact target audience for Wasteland Workshop. I'm the guy who never quite finished the main quest of Fallout 4 because I got too invested in establishing and kitting out every settlement I could. I'm the guy who made su...   read

Players can trade gear in The Division now, but no one's making money off of it

Any persistent game with rare loot drops will naturally have its share of players looking to take shortcuts. Titles like World of Warcraft and Dota 2 have entire economies that thrive on the sale of in-game items for real wor...   read

Fallout 4's Wasteland Workshop is out today

Division players best go convert all their materials tonight

People who play Tom Clancy's The Division would be wise to take a break tonight from saving New York City from looters and ne'er-do-wells. Instead, they should play the part of imaginary Jo-Ann's Fabrics employees, laying all the craft...   read

Starbound's next big update takes it out of Early Access

I was quick to buy Starbound once it showed up on Steam Early Access, but I didn't stick with it for long out of fear that I'd tire myself with the basics before the game really came together. While the developers have made great strides si...   read

Red Faction: Guerrilla is the best open-world game ever and if you disagree you are wrong

Far Cry Primal is adding Survivor mode (and 4K textures on PC)

Tokyo 42 is a damn cool take on Syndicate and classic GTA

Review: Fallout 4: Automatron
