The Outer Worlds and its expansions arrive on Steam and GOG

From the moment the initial trailer of The Outer Worlds dropped, where it brazenly declared that it was from the developers of "The original" Fallout and Fallout: New Vegas, it was a game that I knew I needed in my life. Then the inevitable...

Review: The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon

The Outer Worlds is a kooky sci-fi world I want to explore more of, and while I think (and hope) an eventual sequel could be a home-run, for now, Obsidian Entertainment is expanding Halcyon with DLC. The first of the two story expansions is...

Grounded's roadmap has me excited about the next few months

The future looks bright and bug-filled for Grounded. When the game was first announced, I liked the idea of a shrunken survival game well enough, but it wasn't until I played it that I appreciated just how much potential there is. Obsidian ...

With millions of players and a generally warm reception to the Early Access release of Grounded, Obsidian Entertainment is getting started on monthly updates for the backyard bug survival game. The first monthly update (0.2.0) went live to...

We fought off Grounded's monster spiders, but at what cost?

We built walls from blades of grass. The spiders tore them down. We constructed weapons and went to battle. The spiders defeated us with little effort. We fled to a new home. The spiders just followed us. Honestly, the spiders in Grounded ...

Early Access Review: Grounded

All of my favorite survival games tend to have an unspeakable horror to keep me on my toes, and Grounded – a shrunken-down solo/co-op adventure from RPG powerhouse Obsidian – is no exception. Even if you're the kind of person wh...

As revealed on the Xbox Games Showcase stream, that recent DLC tease for The Outer Worlds was leading up to Peril on Gorgon, a new slice of story set on the Gorgon Asteroid, "formerly the site of one of Halcyon's most ambitious and disastr...

Look at this big-ass Battletoad in Grounded!

As Obsidian so poignantly points out, if you're waiting for the biggest game of the year, look no further than Cyberpunk 2077. Grounded, however, is the smallest. This new trailer shows off a lot of the arachnophobic Honey, I Shrunk The Ki...

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...

The Outer Worlds Switch will 'target' 30FPS, 1080p docked

Stop me if you've seen this before. A big-name game launches simultaneously for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, with a Switch edition "coming later." Given the reputation some games have as a "poor Switch port," some publishers really want to get it ...

Obsidian's Grounded gets a public demo in June

You always want to test drive a car before you buy it. Take it around the block, get a feel for how it moves, kick the tires a few times. You'll have that opportunity with Obsidian's Grounded, but this test drive mostly serves to clear up s...
