The best Kinja Deals aren’t on the products you’ve been waiting months for a price drop on (unless you’re a gamer), they’re on products you didn’t know you needed, or didn’t even know existed.
Pop quiz! Is Counter-Strike: A) a squad-based tactical shooter that pits terrorists against counter-terrorists or B) a fighting game about chickens whose eyes are alight with Kentucky fried fury? Like most questions in article ledes, that one was entirely rhetorical. Thanks to mods, either option is correct.
Star Wars Armada is a great game to play every once in a while. But committing to play a lot of it in the name of an organised campaign is another story.
There’s only one more boss left until we beat the futuristic Souls-like The Surge and we’re going to stream live on Twitch until we kick its robotic ass.
Here’s the always-incredible Alyson Tabbitha with an Attack on Titan outfit that was as simple to put together as it is impressive.
Today, Diablo 3 added a Necromancer class to its morbid ranks. It’s a blast—and literally. “Corpse Explosion,” a callback to Diablo 2, does exactly what it says. When a Necromancer explodes some corpses to kill a monster, and then explodes that monster’s corpse to kill worms it hosts, you know you’re playing Diablo.
At E3 in Los Angeles last month, there were several obvious points of distinction between Assassin’s Creed Origins and the 10 or so major Assassin’s Creed games before it. It’ll be the first AC in ancient Egypt. The first with stargazing puzzles and swimming hippos. One thing I heard about but didn’t see, however,…
Here is a thing you can do in Episode Prompto, the surprisingly good Final Fantasy XV DLC that’s out today. Impressions coming tomorrow.
Three times during our 15-minute E3 interview, Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene was approached by awestruck fans. I get the sense this happens to him a lot nowadays.
Coming soon to iOS and Android, Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion looks to be Ubisoft and Behaviour Interactive’s take on Fallout Shelter. Build an HQ and use it to train Xbox avatar-looking assassins like Ezio and Aguilar before sending them out on “epic missions.” Interesting.
You may be sick of hearing about fidget spinners by now, but that’s too bad. The toy is still blowing up on YouTube, where content creators are playing an Agar.io-inspired game called spinz.io for millions of fans. The game has only been out for a couple of weeks, but there are already over 260,000 videos dedicated to…
Tumbleseed was a difficult, tricky game. Outlast 2 was an uphill march through dangerous enemies. Recently, both have gotten easier thanks to patches and tweaks. Many games have had their difficulty reduced after release. While this makes them accessible to more players, it also raises questions.
Growing up as a kid who loved comic books, I spent many an afternoon running around the park pretending to be a superhero fighting all manners of evil. Fun as it was, the process of picking out which superhero I wanted to be always stressed me out for one particular reason that still bothers me to this day.
As the community anxiously awaits the post-launch PVP mode, some Ghost Recon: Wildlands players are getting crafty with their own in-game challenges.
I spent my free time last weekend playing Cave Story, a good game that first came out in 2004. The reason I’ve been playing it is simple: It just came out on the Nintendo Switch.
We liked what we saw at E3 of zombie survival sim State of Decay II. The sequel still involves leveling up a group of survivors, still has permadeath. Adds online co-op (with permadeath!) and hundreds more character traits. Can a guilt-motivated groundskeeper co-exist with a fight choreographer who snores? Spring 2018…
Lost Sphear, the next game from Square Enix’s Tokyo RPG Factory, looks to improve upon its predecessor in several ways. The combat system is more complicated. The enemies are more challenging. And—hope you’re sitting down for this one—there are inns.
A couple of weeks ago I was braving the big crowds of E3 to meet with the Nvidia team, and while I was ostensibly there to check out Destiny 2 on a PC, what I really wanted to know was what the hell Max-Q Design was. Nvidia announced its new design philosophy back in May, and I’d spent the intervening weeks unable to…
