UPDATE - 6/30, 8:04am: It’s official: BioShock Collection is coming out September 13 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It’ll include BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite, although the latter game won’t be remastered on PC.
Say goodbye to one-tile cities. The newest Civilization game is totally overhauling the city system from previous games, transforming cities into sprawling horizontal territories that take up multiple hexes on the map. It’s a totally new approach that should drastically change how Civ is played.
As America faces an uncertain future, there’s comfort to be found in looking to the past with Civ VI’s choice for the game’s US leader: Teddy Roosevelt.
For those tired of the first two Mafia games’ adherence to strict genre limitations (Italians in nice cars and tommy guns), may I present to you Mafia III.
Yesterday I complained about not being able to replay the animated intro and prologue mission in Battleborn. Now I can, thanks to a game update so stealthy I didn’t even have to reboot.
In 2014, 2K Sports promised that if their NBA2K Twitter account ever reached one million followers that players would receive a sweet bonus. Well, that day has finally arrived, and the bonus is...not sweet.
Given the tone of the game, when I played through XCOM 2 I customised my soldiers with “grim realism” in mind. Those who prefer to get a little silly with their cannon fodder, though, might enjoy the game’s new Anarchy’s Children DLC, which introduces new customisation options for your troops.
An XCOM soldier missing a nearby target? No way!
I used to be the slowest XCOM player on Earth. Then XCOM 2 happened.
If you ever look at your day job and think, self, I could be making more money, then maybe you oughta consider a career in video game sports tattoo litigation.
I used to think that it was just nostalgia, screwing with my memory. But when I did a side-by-side comparison, there was no comparison at all.
Mafia 3 made its first appearance this week at Gamescom, and beyond the scene-setting first trailer (which you can see below), the team at 2K Czech had a half-hour of city-roaming and third-person shooting to show off. I had mixed feelings about what I saw; its setting is great, the music and ambience are fantastic,…
2K Australia, a veteran studio that’s worked on everything from Freedom Force to Tribes to BioShock to Borderlands, was shut down today. Kotaku Australia has the story.
You can play Borderlands 2 and its associated DLC and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and its DLC today, just like you could yesterday. But this time, it’s all packaged together for the new-gen consoles in a definitive collection with some new features, like four-player splitscreen.
I've been playing a lot of Evolve over the last week and the questions I hear are all the same: Are you tired of this game yet? Is it really repetitive? The answer to each is, simply, no and yes, respectively.
When you start playing Evolve, you'll probably suck. Even as you get better, you'll still run into players who also suck. It can be frustrating. So, let's skip the learning through trial by (sometimes literal) fire, and get ahead of the curve.
Some Evolve players' progress is being wiped when they attempt to try to access their game's data from a second console, myself included. It's not clear why yet, but you should probably avoid playing between consoles if you value your time.
