Overwatch
We all knew a support was coming to Overwatch, but I didn't expect Pharah's mom, and I especially didn't expect her to be in playable state on the PTR today. Yes, if you're so inclined, you can boot up your Battle.net client right now and try Ana out -- I suggest you do so, because she's a blast to play.   read

Ruiner is a slick-looking cyberpunk shooter

Reikon Games is taking us to 2091 with its upcoming top-down action-shooter Ruiner, and based on the cyberpunk imagery and snappy combat shown in this trailer, I am down. Where did this come from? It's being made in Warsaw by folks who pre...   read

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

As a modern take on the original Grand Theft Auto and Syndicate with some lovely pops of color, Tokyo 42 makes a great first impression. It's an open-world isometric game about an up-and-coming assassin "embroiled in all sorts of cyber-she...   read

I thought I was tired of roguelike platformers, but GoNNER suggests otherwise

As much as I don't think I need another super-tough platformer with roguelike elements in my life, maybe I do! I dig the unusual art and clickety-clackety sound design of GoNNER. Screenshots don't do the aesthetic much justice. This trailer...   read

Turok and Turok 2 are being re-released for PC

Remember when Acclaim offered $10,000 to parents who named their kid "Turok?" I still get a good laugh out of that whenever I think of the series. Beyond that legacy they were actually fun little shooters, and now both Turok and Turok ...   read

New Quantum Break trailer has a hobbit and military violence

ZombiU hits PC, PS4, and Xbox One next month

Early Wii U owners should know all about ZombiU. Depending on who you ask, it was a decent to great zombie survival game and a much-needed one at that. Years later, Ubisoft is bringing it to other platforms -- PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox O...   read

One last look at GTA Online heists ahead of next week's launch
