Your PC shouldn't go into system shock trying to run Prey

Getting to Talos-I, the moon-orbiting space station in Prey, won't require a bunch of rocket fuel or alien technology. Nothing too powerful is needed to travel there, just the same rig that can run a bunch of other games. Alongside today's ...   read

Let's watch a long-ass Prey gameplay video

Prey gets a soonish release date and a new trailer

The stories behind some games are just crazy. What began life as a direct sequel to Prey has now been rebranded as some totally different, yet still somewhat cool looking, sci-fi game. I'm not sure why Prey was chosen for this kind of exper...   read

Here are 80 ways to kill Kirin Jindosh

Like I noted earlier: Dishonored 2 makes killing fun, even it'd rather you not. The first is probably my favorite. There's a nut-shot that's pretty good, though. And of course I am partial to the way I did it: entering Jindosh's Clockwork ...   read
