EVE Online developer has the right attitude about making sandbox games

Earlier this week, the Citadel expansion came to EVE Online. Two years ago, developer CCP moved toward releasing more frequent updates for the game, so this type of event is a relatively regular occurrence. Citadel, however, is a prett...   read

The studio behind Rust has a new Minecraft-style VR game

At first glance, Chunks just seems like a form of Minecraft designed with virtual reality in mind. You can create and destroy your overly-familiar-looking sandbox world as an all-seeing being in the sky, or mercilessly toss your little blo...   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

Most sandbox games treat their open worlds like pornographic films treat story. Despite the fact that games like Assassin’s Creed or Grand Theft Auto bill themselves as sandbox experiences, the actual open-world ...   read

The Tomorrow Children beta returns this weekend

I attempted to play the recent beta for The Tomorrow Children only to realize that, darn it, I was a few hours too late. After going through the brief tutorial section, I rode on a subway that was supposed to run to a town with other player...   read

Ark: Survival Evolved has more daily players on Xbox One than Steam

Several developers have put their work-in-progress games up for sale on Xbox One. How's that initiative working out? In the case of at least one game, Ark: Survival Evolved, very well. According to Studio Wildcard co-founder Jesse Rapczak, ...   read

Terraria: Otherworld is coming along

Re-Logic is keeping itself plenty busy with work on Terraria (content updates, mobile/console fixes, launching next year's Wii U version) and its new spin-off game, Terraria: Otherworld, which has shades of tower defense. It's being designe...   read

Minecraft is doing well on Wii U

We could have predicted Minecraft: Wii U Edition would be a hit. It may be a late arrival compared to other console ports, lack GamePad inventory management, and cost $29.99, but it's Minecraft. Even the knockoffs have done well for themsel...   read

Starbound's combat update should make fighting more interesting

I'll admit: my hype for Starbound is nowhere near the level where it was two years ago. Being in beta for that long can do that. After my group exhausted the quest lines for the first iteration, we never really went back, despite a big upda...   read

Reshape planets with a friend in Astroneer

It's morning still. I feel way too groggy to let out an audible "whoa!" while watching a trailer for a video game, but Astroneer managed to elicit one anyway. Two, actually. It was the player-controlled terrain deformation that did it both ...   read

The Tomorrow Children looks so dang cool

The Tomorrow Children was among the first games to make me want to buy a PlayStation 4 sooner than later. While Bloodborne ultimately pushed me in that direction, I'm still captivated by Q-Games' uncanny game about exploring, mining, buildi...   read

Dragon Quest Builders gets trailer, out January 2016

Square Enix showed off the opening cinematic for Dragon Quest Heroes and its director proceeded to explain block-building games as if Minecraft isn't also huge in Japan (it is). Builders is an in-house Square Enix project getting "idea...   read

Terraria hits Mac and Linux at long last

Several years later, Terraria is still going strong. After a round of open beta testing, the Mac and Linux versions of the popular sandbox game have launched. If you're a Windows player, you won't need to pay for these new ports, and all th...   read

More frequent updates are planned for Terraria

In an interview with PC Gamer, Terraria’s lead developer Andrew “Redigit” Spinks announced that going forward, there will be more frequent but smaller updates to the game. Talking about the recent 1.3 update, Spinks also a...   read

3DS and Wii U won't get Terraria until early 2016

Retailer listings suggested Terraria was destined for 3DS and Wii U and that's still the case. It's coming. Eventually. Re-Logic and 505 Games anticipate an "early 2016" release. Both offer touch controls. 3DS has support for four local pla...   read

Minecraft 1.9 is coming to cut your head off in The Combat Update, first snapshot released

When not diving into their Scrooge McDuck-style pools of money, the folks over at Mojang have announced they’re working on Minecraft 1.9, dubbed The Combat Update. Three guesses as to what it’s going to be about. Alongside the o...   read

Don't write off Dragon Quest Builders just yet

That first image of Dragon Quest Builders (PS3, PS4, PS Vita) didn't do much for me. "Huh? Dragon Quest through the lens of Minecraft? Uhh, okay." *closes tab* These latest screenshots are more substantial. The "Camp" bar in the HUD is intr...   read

Building, crafting, crashing, and laughing in Crashlands

I'm fighting the urge to do the lazy blogger "if X and Y had a baby" thing, but I don't know if I can help myself. Crashlands looks like what would happen if The Behemoth (BattleBlock Theater) were to develop Klei Entertainment's Don't Sta...   read

Terraria is coming to Wii U and 3DS

It's looking as though Terraria is coming to 3DS and Wii U, if a recent Amazon listing for the game is anything to go by. Now I know, Amazon has a pretty bad habit of just listing any game it can think of in the hopes it’ll event...   read

Terraria 1.3 has mine carts and a release date: June 30

Every time a new Terraria update trailer comes out, I find myself watching and rewatching it to try to pick out things that are new. The most obvious one in this 1.3 trailer is the mine cart. Now that it's here, it surprises me that it has...   read

GoatZ DLC brings fire-breathing zombie elephants to Goat Simulator

Zombies are coming to Goat Simulator and absolutely no one is surprised. The zombie-filled GoatZ expansion calls itself "the only survival game on Steam that isn’t in Early Access," which is only a little untrue. Either way, thi...   read

New Starbound update adds pets and teleporters

It seems like these are being pushed out more frequently now. The last stable update to Starbound came out about three months ago, but before that it had been nearly a year. That said, this update seems much less substantial than the last o...   read
