Conan Exiles is taking its snake-punching ways to Xbox One

A week ago, in light of some new screenshots surfacing for Funcom's Conan Exiles, I said I was feeling the sandbox survival game despite my general fatigue with the genre. That's still true today as I watch this trailer informing us of a J...


Q-Games' perplexing The Tomorrow Children goes free to play

Q-Games' hard-to-pin-down The Tomorrow Children has been out on PlayStation 4 since early September, but that was only if you ponied up $20 for a Founders Pack. Starting this week, as promised, the labor-centric cooperative town-builder wil...


Amazon Game Studios reveals three ambitious new PC games

I can't say I've given Amazon's move into game development much attention, so perhaps my expectations were low coming in, but I like the sound of two of its three newly-announced PC titles. Breakaway has the most to show and, unfortunatel...


Dragon Quest Builders has a demo out for PS4 and Vita

I can't remember the last time I downloaded a demo, but I'll happily take the time to nab the trial for Dragon Quest Builders (PS4 here, PS Vita here). I'm so curious about this game. What initially looked like a me-too sandbox constructio...


Review: Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

Ahh, the familiar loop of Dead Rising: leaving the safehouse, fretting about the finite time you have to rescue bizarre civilians, panicking when their braindead AI leads to them being eaten by actual braindead zombies, and picking yourself...


Review: Dead Rising 2

I didn't always like the Dead Rising series. Far from it, actually. My dour experience with the original wasn't exactly out of the ordinary given its rough edges. I liked the concept, particularly back in 2006, of an open-world zombie game...

Dead Rising photo

Those Dead Rising remasters look less blurry

Listings for the three recently-announced Dead Rising remasters have appeared on the Xbox Store, and on top of including the first round of rather compressed screenshots (DR1 is noticeably more crisp than the Xbox 360 original), they mentio...

Starbound photo

It's time to give Starbound another look

This is not the same Starbound I remember playing two-plus years ago. Not even close! As of today, Chucklefish's extraterrestrial sandbox adventure game is no longer on Steam Early Access because, well, it's finished. The full release vers...

7 Days to Die review photo

Review: 7 Days to Die

For better or worse, I didn't know what I was getting into with 7 Days to Die. I had heard that name before, and I was aware that it was a popular sandbox zombie survival game on Steam Early Access, but that's it. Prior to news that Telltal...

Starbound exits Steam Early Access on July 22

I played too much Starbound too early, and as we inch closer to the next major update -- the one that'll push it out of Steam Early Access at long last -- that sentiment keeps coming up. A bunch of us want to give the extraterrestrial sandb...

Landmark photo

EverQuest fans aren't too thrilled with Landmark

Daybreak Game Company couldn't make EverQuest Next work and formally canceled the MMORPG in March, but work has continued on Landmark. The online sandbox building game, at one time a precursor to Next, released today on Steam for $9.99. Dis...

PS4 open beta photo

The Tomorrow Children has an open beta running this weekend

The Tomorrow Children is a perplexing game. You and other players form towns, fight monsters, and gather resources -- all things we've done before in video games -- but the way it's presented is so utterly strange that it feels new. Q-Games...

Waste of Space photo

Goat Simulator takes to space

Goat Simulator's latest expansion takes place on a scam, crowdfunded space colony; an Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonator (narrating the trailer); a Star Wars: The Force Awakens joke; a 69 joke; a #MakeSpaceGreatAgain (picking up the mantle...

Project Spark photo

Rest in peace, Project Spark

As of today, Project Spark isn't downloadable on Xbox One or Windows. Microsoft made the call. Current owners can continue to play with the game-maker for the time being, but online support will cease on August 12, 2016. From that point on,...

Terraria photo

For real this time: Terraria releases on Wii U in June

Re-Logic's action-adventure sandbox game Terraria finally made it over to 3DS, but that elusive Wii U version? Still upcoming! Publisher 505 Games has locked in a release date at last, though -- it's launching at retail in Europe on June 24...

Chunks photo

The studio behind Rust has a new Minecraft-style VR game

At first glance, Chunks just seems like a form of Minecraft designed with virtual reality in mind. You can create and destroy your overly-familiar-looking sandbox world as an all-seeing being in the sky, or mercilessly toss your little blo...

Starbound photo

Starbound's next big update takes it out of Early Access

I was quick to buy Starbound once it showed up on Steam Early Access, but I didn't stick with it for long out of fear that I'd tire myself with the basics before the game really came together. While the developers have made great strides si...

Tomorrow Children photo

The Tomorrow Children beta returns this weekend

I attempted to play the recent beta for The Tomorrow Children only to realize that, darn it, I was a few hours too late. After going through the brief tutorial section, I rode on a subway that was supposed to run to a town with other player...

Terraria: Otherworld photo

Terraria: Otherworld is coming along

Re-Logic is keeping itself plenty busy with work on Terraria (content updates, mobile/console fixes, launching next year's Wii U version) and its new spin-off game, Terraria: Otherworld, which has shades of tower defense. It's being designe...

Minecraft photo

Minecraft is doing well on Wii U

We could have predicted Minecraft: Wii U Edition would be a hit. It may be a late arrival compared to other console ports, lack GamePad inventory management, and cost $29.99, but it's Minecraft. Even the knockoffs have done well for themsel...

CaimDark Reloaded

How important is elderseal against elder dragons and how do I know when its actually doing anything? Is it useful enough that high elderseal is better than a bit more raw damage?
