If you’re lucky, a tank will walk up to you and emote “understood.” You’ll serve them dutifully and wait for the…
On September 8, Star Trek turned 45 years old. Happy Birthday, Star Trek! Even though I hate you and your cheap-ass sets and lame vision of the future and hammy plots and silly aliens and...
Last week, Kotaku reported on No Mario’s Sky, a procedural game where you could make the plumber leap in a spaceship and explore different worlds. Two days ago, the team received a copyright takedown notice. Undeterred, they rebranded their game and pressed forward.
Four Sided Fantasy as a puzzle game by Ludo Land all about redefining boundaries. It is out now on the Playsation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Giving the player the ability to lock the screen in place, they can wrap around, fall upwards, and change what it means for a screen to end.
Made for Ludum Dare 36, No Mario’s Sky is the Last Mario You Will Ever Need™. Okay, that may be an exaggeration but it is full of mushrooms, coins, goombas, rocket ships, and more!
Indie game Pan-Pan offers players a world they desperately want to be in and then hampers their ability to enjoy it. The game’s take on exploration kept me pushing through frustrating puzzles. By the end of my journey, I’d worked through confusion all for the purpose of remaining in a fantasy paradise.
Perspective-shifting platformer Fez came out all the way back in 2012. It was first announced in 2007. Last week, a patch was released for it that brings nearly a decade’s worth of development on the title to a close.
Discord is a newcomer to the chat scene, but it’s made a big splash. The app provides voice and text chat for groups, with an emphasis on gaming. However, it’s so sweet I’ve already started using it for everyday chat.
There are no monsters in Near Death, a new video game about escaping an otherwise abandoned, wrecked and unbearably cold Antarctic research station. There are no bad guys at all. There is just the menace of weather: sub-zero temperatures that make it fatal to be outside for more than a couple of minutes, howling winds…
“We believe Bruce Wayne is just as important as the Batman,” a Telltale rep said at E3 this week as he began playing through a demo of his company’s new Batman game.

Here’s a World of Warcraft Horde wedding ceremony, in the heart of the enemy faction’s capital city, in Stormwind Cathedral.
Quel’Thalas was added in 2007, but never got the facelift that other, older zones received in 2010. And while there are no plans to revamp anything in these parts of Azeroth, YouTuber Hayven played with the idea for the duration of a short clip.
Duskwood, a World of Warcraft zone almost all Alliance players visit while leveling, got the Unreal Engine treatment by Daniel L, who’s slowly recreating all the classic Eastern Kingdoms zones.

The biggest change in World of Warcraft: Legion? No, it’s not the redesigned PvP system. There’ll be a new gold cap, increased from 999,999 gold to 9,999,999.
World of Warcraft: Legion comes out on August 30, which means we won’t see a new update in the coming months. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do in WoW. It’s the perfect time to prepare for all the gameplay changes.
Using lower case Ls and capitalized Is to create barcode names to remain anonymous sort of became a trend in competitive StarCraft II, and sometimes it results in perfect ladder moments like this one above.
Before this weekend, I hadn’t played World of Warcraft since a Saturday afternoon in late 2005. That was the only day of my life I spent playing one of history’s most successful video games. A WoW-free decade later and with an archaeological curiosity, I’m giving it a fresh try.
A new, revamped Challenge Mode is coming to dungeons in World of Warcraft: Legion, with multiple difficulty levels and some really nasty affixes. It’s something similar to Diablo III’s Greater Rifts.
