Donkey Kong Country with classic Kong designs is unsettling

There are very few people out there who haven't at least tried the original Donkey Kong Country. Nintendo and Rare have made it fairly easy over the years, with many copies of the SNES original circulating out there, as well as Game Boy Col...

Sea of Thieves update addresses stalemates and griefing

Today's update for Sea of Thieves targets a problem I've run into quite a few times now: stalemates. If your crew has ever set sail toward a skull fort in hopes of stockpiling loads of treasure, you've more than likely encountered other shi...

Rare drops its planned 'death cost' for Sea of Thieves

Rare planned to introduce a "small gold fee" for dying in Sea of Thieves, a change that didn't sit well with many players. The idea was that you'd be dinged for dying out in the world to skeletons or sharks, not against other players, and t...

Review: Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves is proving to be a divisive game. During my review-in-progress, I said that I fell in the middle of the pack: somewhere between the folks who find Rare's shared-world pirate adventure dreadfully boring and those who feel it's...

Upcoming Sea of Thieves patch adds gold cost for death

So it seems there are some changes to Sea of Thieves that are coming in addition to the "day one [item] patch" joke very soon.  Tucked away in their 1.0 patch notes is a "coming updates" section, which explains a new mechanic...

Review in Progress: Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves has an amazing foundation. That's clear from the outside looking in, and the feeling washes over you the first time you board your ship, chart a course, raise the anchor, lower the sails, and set off adventuring in a shared w...

Sea of Thieves is holding one last beta this weekend

There's one more chance to try out Sea of Thieves before Rare's shared-world pirate adventure game launches on March 20. The final beta went live earlier today for everyone -- you'll only need Xbox Live Gold if you're playing on Xbox One --...

The Sea of Thieves beta is back for the weekend

It's almost March, and that means it's almost time for Rare's shared-world pirate adventure game Sea of Thieves. If yesterday's look at skeleton forts left you counting the days until March 20, some good news: there's another chance to mess...

Sea of Thieves has skull forts and they sound intense

Many a swashbuckler had a rip-roaring good time during the Sea of Thieves January beta. But, a common complaint is that there wasn't enough variety to guarantee an extended good time. Rare seems set on proving there's more to the...

There will be a couple more chances to play Sea of Thieves before it launches on March 20. Rare is planning to hold a "scale test" for its open-sea multiplayer pirate adventure game from Friday, February 16 at 2:00am Pacific until Sunday, F...

Your PC doesn't need to be a man-of-war to run Sea of Thieves

All sorts of schooner-steerers are welcome on the tranquil-but-usually-also-hostile waters of Sea of Thieves. Xbox One owners already know that their standardized ships will be perfectly adequate for living that pirate life. But, PC players...

Well, guess I'm horny for a hard drive

First a motherboard and now an external hard drive. Against all odds, 2018 is shaping up to be the year that I'm extremely into the aesthetic of certain hardware. Accompanying the recent reveal of the Sea of Thieves Xbox One controller...

We had a blast goofing off in Sea of Thieves

The number-one thing to know about Sea of Thieves? You can load yourself into a cannon and have your buddy fire you over islands and, presumably, onto other player-controlled ships if you're aimed well. The number-two thing to know? You can...

That's one way to dodge a cannonball

Sea of Thieves is in beta right now (and it just got extended a few days) and that means all sorts of weird things can happen while developer Rare works out the kinks. For a lot of people, that means boring and frustrating stuff like ...

Sea of Thieves beta extended as players face technical issues

For some players, it's been a real challenge getting the Sea of Thieves beta to cooperate. There have been issues with the game mistakenly saying it's "too early" to play and locking folks out, and I've had (probably Windows 10-related) pro...
