You will not ride a majestic unicorn within the first ten minutes of Riders of Icarus, Nexon’s free-to-play massively multiplayer online role-playing game, which launches into free open beta tomorrow. That’s for 20 minutes in. First comes the pegasus.
Exploration has always been at the heart of the Pokémon series. A young person strikes out on a monster-collecting adventure, learning about the world around them along the way. My brief time with Pokémon Go felt like that, albeit on a slightly smaller scale.
Rollerblading healer hero Lucio is one of my favorite characters to play in Overwatch. The simple act of skating around feels great, especially when you’re riding walls like gravity’s just another rail ripe for grinding. This guy, though, he’s turned it into an art form.
Overwatch is a game about interplay between many different heroes, some of whom represent entirely different subgenres of FPS. Despite the potential for unbalanced chaos, it all clicks. The reason? Details like this one.
Whether you’re an itsy bitsy baby Overwatch player or that Junkrat who keeps using his exploding tire to hunt me and only me (I WILL FIND YOUR HOME), you’ll fare about the same against a room plastered with death lasers: poorly.
The latest Overwatch update didn’t just give Tracer a different, slightly more in-character butt pose; it also gave players a reason to fight until they can’t fight anymore (that isn’t butts).
Today’s big Internet controversy involves butts, as these things so often do. An Overwatch player complained about one character’s butt-centric victory pose, prompting the game’s director to say they’re removing it.
In major multiplayer games like Overwatch, what comes after a big patch is almost more interesting than what it’s in it. This is certainly a, um, standout instance of that.
Hi-Rez Studios kicks off a week of second anniversary shenanigans in its god-powered multiplayer online battle arena with an open invitation to PlayStation 4 owners to play. Plus daily special events, some dancing, and a ridiculously low price on every character in the game.

The console beta for Popcap’s Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is live this weekend, giving players a tiny taste of the new maps and modes in next month’s shooter sequel. My favorite part so far? The free-roaming playground that’s replaced the first game’s menus.
EA’s throwing a Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 multiplayer beta event starting next Thursday, on January 14. The beta, which ends on January 18, will be freely available on PS4 and Xbox One. Check out the GW2 beta page for more info, and eventual download links, if your interest’s piqued.
Blizzard’s team-based shooter is now in beta, and those who played on the Japanese-themed map Hanamura, could discover a location with a bunch of silly arcade cabinets.
This weekend, fans playing the beta for Star Wars Battlefront got the news that the open beta for the much-anticipated shooter was getting one more day. Seems like a rare, awesome gift from EA to everyone, right? Turns out it’s not all that rare.
