Horizon Zero Dawn is just as stunning and flawed on PC

It's hard to believe that Horizon Zero Dawn is over three years old at this point, but Sony has so many great new IPs this generation, it's hard to keep track of them all. Bringing Horizon Zero Dawn back into the limelight makes a whole lot...

Fallout 76: The Legendary Run isn't so legendary

[Update: Bethesda has since made adjustments to The Legendary Run from when I originally began writing this. They've now increased the amount of SCORE rewarded and the number of daily challenges each day. So, pretty much disregard the math ...

Magic: Arena's Core 2021 is a sensible set

It's time for yet another Magic: The Gathering set, which means that it's time for another Magic: Arena set. As the two formats — paper and digital — debut together, we enter yet another busy year with four sets to jug...

Gestalt: Steam & Cinder won me over with its first room

A single room with a pair of friendly NPCs, enough space to dodge-roll, and a wall to leap off of – that's all it took to convince me that Gestalt: Steam & Cinder, an upcoming revolver-firing, sword-slashing platformer, will be wo...

The half-hour demo for Grounded is such a pleasant surprise

Before today, I thought that Grounded, a shrunken-kids survival game from the RPG powerhouse Obsidian, had decent potential. It's not exactly the studio's bread and butter, but the pitch – a solo/co-op adventure in which you'll chop d...

Gloomwood is a fun blend of survival horror and immersive sim

When a developer takes the URL ThiefWithGuns.com for their game, you know they're onto something. "They" in this case is Dillon Rogers, David Szymanski, and New Blood Interactive, the minds behind Dusk. Their new game, Gloomwood, is worth t...

Apex Legends story mode has stepped it up a bit

A few weeks ago we checked in on the new story mode in Apex Legends Season 5, the "Broken Ghost." And the verdict there could be distilled to "neat, but shallow." Still, the model appears to be working well for Respawn, as it has ...

Borderlands 2 on Nintendo Switch is a surprisingly good time

I didn't set out to buy Borderlands 2 for Nintendo Switch, but it worked out that way over the weekend. Why? Well, it's been a while – I haven't gotten around to Borderlands 3 yet (or even The Pre-Sequel), and I'm not sure I ever will...

Connection errors didn't gum up Ninjala's second open beta

The first open beta for GungHo Online's Ninjala didn't go particularly well. A flood of connection issues kept most players from giving it a go. Its second beta, open to players around the world for several hours on Sunday, went a lot ...

The Ghostrunner demo is quick but well worth your time

The wall-running, mid-air-dodging, cyber-ninja parkour demo for Ghostrunner won't stick around forever – it's only playable on Steam until May 13, 2020 – so when you get a chance, play it. I can't remember the last time a demo s...
