I played 20 minutes of Paradox’s new city builder, Surviving Mars, at E3. The demo showed off different phases of planet colonization, from early moments establishing a livable area to later on, when I had multiple inhabited domes to work with. The game draws on real-world science and seems complex. If, however, you…
If you have Overwatch and an Amazon Prime Membership, you can get a free in-game Golden Loot Box with a guaranteed legendary item today, plus 10 more standard loot boxes for free later on (five in August, five more in October).
OpenRA, the open source project that takes Westwood’s classic RTS games and makes them prettier (and better) on modern systems, has just turned 10. Here’s a new trailer to celebrate.
Bethesda’s Creation Club is a new program that’ll allow select development teams and modders to develop, polish, and release Fallout 4 and Skyrim content alongside Todd Howard’s magical toy factory. Modder CDante’s “Creation Club” is a different kind of club entirely. A golf club.
Since 2015, Elite Dangerous players have felt some kind of alien presence hovering on the periphery of their space trucking adventures. Recently, things came to a head, with players making direct contact with Thargoid ships on multiple occasions. Where is this all going? I spoke with senior designer Sandy Sammarco…
I played Half-Life remake Black Mesa, and really liked it! I also in the intervening years completely forgot that it wasn’t technically finished, since it ended on Earth and not, as the original game did, on the alien planet Xen.
After a difficult string of placement matches for the current Overwatch competitive season, the unthinkable happened. I dropped to a lower tier. I had spent multiple seasons comfortably sitting in the Platinum tier, and suddenly I was Gold. I have become obsessed with undoing this demotion.

Killer Instinct will be coming to Steam later this year. Announced during the game’s top eight play at CEO 2017 last night, no launch date or price point has been set yet for the former Windows 10 Store exclusive.
Stormblood launched in early access today, and the servers are getting bodied. As I see it, we wouldn’t have constant lag, frequent disconnects and players forming massive lines in a desperate attempt to get a quest done if Final Fantasy XIV didn’t make such attractive expansion packs.
Competitive first-person shooters operate on all sorts of sets of unspoken rules. Teams should be, more or less, evenly powered. Opponents should die occasionally. Everyone should be visible—at least, most of the time. Aftercharge aims to break those rules.
Remember, as fun as it is, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still a work in progress, so lots of things are going to not just change, but be added to the game as well. Stuff like climbing, vaulting and weather.
When I played Destiny 2 last month, the most striking difference wasn’t anything about the game itself. It was how it felt to play it on PC.
There are many important roles one can occupy aboard a pirate ship. You can steer, or keep the cannons loaded, or manage sails, or navigate. Me? I was the guy who rang the bell. In peace and at war, I held my post. Until I launched myself out of a cannon and into a shark, anyway.
Destiny 2, a video game that just got un-delayed, will hit PC on October 24, developer Bungie said today. The PS4 and Xbox One versions, meanwhile, will arrive two days earlier than expected, on September 6.
Cars? The Crew 1 had them. Trucks? Motorcycles? Been there. But The Crew 2, shown off for the first time at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference has added planes and boats.
Lawbreakers will officially launch on PlayStation 4 and PC August 8. Speaking during the PC Gaming Show at E3, Boss Key Productions’ Cliff Bleszinski said the price will be $29.99, “None of that $60 multiplayer-only bullshit.”
Total War : Warhammer II (aka Total Warhammer II) will arrive on PC September 28. Those who preorder the base game or the $150 Serpent God edition within the first week of availability get a free race pack for the original Total Warhammer.
