You’re trapped in time. The same day won’t stop repeating itself, even if you ask it really nicely or, you know, die. You have absolute freedom. What do you do?
One game. Six overtimes. 88 goddamn rounds. Consensus says it’s the longest single game of pro Counter-Strike: Global Offensive ever.
A new starting area, tweaked visuals, sweeping profession balance changes—today the fourteen-year-old Anarchy Online received the biggest update its seen in ages, as well as the first $15 from me since I stopped playing in 2005. »
Large in physical size, not in storage capacity. Computer enthusiast Christopher Parish modified a vintage “DEC RL02” drive—as big as a decent PC case—from the 70s so it can connect to modern PCs via USB. Technically this might be the largest and the heaviest USB storage device in the world. »
I’ve been playing a lot of Assassin’s Creed lately. First Unity then Rogue, I’ve since moved onto (or returned to) Assassin’s Creed IV, and playing all three in quick succession has reminded me of one thing: Black Flag is a very good video game, better than most people gave it credit for when it was first released. »
The creators of Ratchet and Clank and Sunset Overdrive finally take the PC plunge with Slow Down, Bull, a delightfully simple game about a bull and his art. »
Heroes of the Storm is officially launching on June 2nd, following an open beta period beginning May 19th, Blizzard just announced.

My Summer Car is a game about chugging beer and tinkering obsessively with a beat-up old sports car. It is, according to its creator, the most realistic car game ever. »
Bizarrely, Mortal Kombat X has a sizable slate of classic Mortal Kombat characters that you can only fight against, not play as, Rain and Baraka foremost among them. Clever players, however, have figured out how to use them in the game’s PC version. »
It’s not perfect VR, as in this case the headset is simply recreating the mouse/thumbstick view from the regular controls (and not giving you full and proper VR support), but still. This motorbike ride looks like a lot of fun. »
The idea of 12K (11520×2160 resolution) gaming is nothing new. Even Microsoft has been talking about it for a couple of years now.
