Divinity: Original Sin 2 will get a full release on September 14. I played a ton of the first game in early access and wound up not finishing the final version. This time around, I’m waiting. Hope it’s as good as it looks!
Nier: Automata came out two months ago on PC. It’s a really good game, and a clear standout during an unusually strong spring. So why the heck is the PC version still loaded with basic bugs and other problems that haven’t been patched?
Many fans were happy to hear about Kaldaien’s “FAR mod,” a patch that fixes Nier: Automata’s technical issues on PC. Some people who downloaded the mod were surprised to find that it checks whether or not you’ve pirated the game, and the modder’s decision to include such a feature has proven controversial.
In 2013, voxel exploration game Cube World blew up, amassing millions of views on YouTube and video game sites. Despite the hype, Cube World’s creators became infamous for going radio silent, while the paid alpha for the game hasn’t updated since July 2013. Many fans have probably asked themselves, “What happened to …
Most big video games these days seem designed to work best with a controller. PC mouse and keyboard controls are often an afterthought. Prey is the unusual, welcome exception.
I’ve spent the past few weeks gaming, working and pretending to work on the Volta V, the world’s first commercially-produced handcrafted wooden computer. It feels like it’s part of the family.
While enthusiasts eagerly await to coming of the next-generation of high-end Radeon cards, AMD shores up its starting lineup with the RX 500 series, featuring small but significant improvements over last year’s RX 470 and RX 480 graphics cards.
In 1984 IBM introduced the legendary Model M, a beast of a mechanical keyboard that utilized a unique buckling spring key switch to make sweet love to the user’s fingers, along with a lot of noise. Unicomp’s Ultra Classic is the Model M’s direct descendant, and it’s almost as good as the original.
Last week Kotaku’s Nathan Grayson told us about PC Building Simulator, an indie game in which the nightmare of putting together a gaming PC follows us into the virtual world. This week I played the demo release, and it’s not nearly as difficult as it is in real life.
It’s hard to believe five years have passed since the March 2012 release of Mass Effect 3, which cemented the trilogy as something of a modern cult classic among RPG fans. Given the prestige associated with the series, it should come as no surprise that it received a new title and even less of a surprise that it’s…
If you play games on PC, you’ve probably at least considered building your own at some point or another. Problem: PCs are towering amalgams of chips, screws, and (ugh) thermal paste. The prospect of assembling one can be daunting. Enter PC Building Simulator.
The latest keyboard to come from Logitech’s gamer-focused G series is a compact little number built specifically for esports professionals. I am not an esports professional, but I know what I like.
Morphblade, a new PC game by Gunpoint developer Tom Francis, has the allure of ‘one more round’ that would make it a great mobile game. I’m glad it’s not, though, because I already miss my subway stops enough.
Some gaming laptops are legendary electronic beasts, brimming with the latest in powerful mobile computing tech, built to perform and priced slightly beyond that. Then there is the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop. You want to play games? It can do that. Just don’t go crazy.
If you’re into keyboard switches, you’ll appreciate news that the latest version of Razer’s BlackWidow gaming keyboard adds a third option—the silent, low-travel Razer Yellow switch. Me, I’m just excited about the magnetic wrist rest.
Many cheap retro controllers look the part, but fall down when it comes down to build quality. Thankfully the iBuffalo classic USB gamepad doesn’t succumb to these issues. It feels every bit as good as an original Super Nintendo pad does.
The Volta V is the first commercially-produced, handcrafted wooden computer, and if you’ve got the green, it can pack some serious gaming power.
I’ve played a lot of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Like, a LOT. My Steam counter just cracked 200 hours, and that’s not counting the first time I played the game on PS4. I figured I’d seen everything there was to see, but a mod I recently installed has proved me wrong.
