Most of the time, it’s not terribly difficult to slot games on Steam’s best-sellers list into categories. You’ve got your multiplayer survival game of the week, your triple-A hit, your discounted indie, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and so on. West of Loathing, though, defies categorization.

If Overwatch had a single-player story mode, it would be Agents of Mayhem. If a big-name developer devoted the time and energy to do a G.I. Joe game right, it would be Agents of Mayhem. If Crackdown had more personality and jokes about balls, it would be Agents of Mayhem. The Saints Row spin-off is a lot of things,…
There’s a long history of Civilization board games, from a 1980 title that kinda inspired the video game series to a number of versions (in 2002 and 2010) that have in turn been based on the video games. We can now add one more to the list, this time based loosely on Civilization VI.
Hey, remember when Blizzard callously killed the “Battle.net” name, a beloved moniker for its online service in games like StarCraft, Diablo, and Overwatch that dates all the way back to 1996? Well, the blue giant has now decided to un-kill it.
If I have one guilty pleasure series, it’s Assassin’s Creed. Normally, I’m not one to get excited about yearly releases, let alone broken games. But I’ve played and mostly enjoyed every game in the series. Recently, I returned to Assassin’s Creed II, and, much to my surprise, I realized just how much I’ve lowered my…
Sonic Mania is a celebration, a digitized block party of blistering speeds and bright worlds. Sega’s decision to hand their famous mascot over to fan creators and artists has paid massive dividends, creating a game that is not just a welcome return to form but a raucous, delightful experience.

The PC version of Sonic Mania has been pushed back from August 15 to August 29. Announced during a live stream this morning, the PC version apparently requires further optimization. Steam preorder customers will get a copy of the original Sonic the Hedgehog as compensation.

Wild Heart is a simple but fun strategy with a great concept: take a bunch of animals and let them duel using special abilities and smart positioning. It’s a light and charming affair full of fighting foxes and evil wolves. It’s this week’s indie pick.
When Valve first announced that it was taking a long-overdue crowbar to Steam Greenlight and replacing it with a new system called Steam Direct, people weren’t sure what would happen. Some thought Steam was about to get more exclusive again. Others feared that Valve was only widening the floodgates. Now we’ve got…
