Rust has boats and a tense new helicopter event

For me, Rust tends to bounce between two very different experiences. Sometimes, it's a nerve-wracking game about establishing a safe haven where you won't be found and promptly murdered in the night. Other times, it's a reckless game about ...

Rust is nearing the end of its run on Steam Early Access

The last time I played Rust was back in October 2014. To recap: I smashed a warthog to pieces and then got my own head bashed in by another player, like you do. I haven't been back since. It's not even that I'm bored of the humans-are-the-r...

Rustic: Rust generates avatar cock size by Steam ID

I committed the perfect crime in Rust

I've been playing Rust a lot this past week, slowly building up a fortified home and learning as much as I can about the world. It's a brutal, mean place, even on a server dedicated to player vs. environment play, in that it's just as easy...
