A couple months ago I reviewed MSI’s GT75VR, and even though I respect how hard it is to cram desktop-level components, ridiculously loud speakers, and a custom mechanical keyboard in a laptop body, gigantic 17-inch systems like that don’t really do it for me. That’s because weighing in at almost 10 pounds and…
Battlegrounds recently changed their female underwear texture to remove visible labia, and that’s great. I still have one gripe though. The bra texture in Battlegrounds is just egregiously, obviously bad.
World of Warcraft: Legion’s final boss, the mythic difficulty version of Argus The Unmaker, took players by surprise when he (un) made his first appearance in the game last week. Top guilds expected a cakewalk. Instead, they got thrashings. Hundreds of them. Finally, though, Argus has fallen.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was one of Black Friday’s best deals at $25, but if you failed to pull the trigger, you can get it for $35 right now on PS4 and PC, which is pretty good considering the game is still less than two months old.
Ralph McQuarrie’s original concept art for Star Wars still influences the designs and creatures we see in the films, in comics, and on TV today. His legacy in the shaping of the saga’s visual identity is unquestionable. But his work also paints a picture of a Star Wars we never got to see—one this fan film…
Look at those smiling faces. They’ve had their difference in the past, but now they’ve bonded over the shared trauma of being stuffed and sold to children at the mall. Bowser and Mario join Yoshi, Toad, Luigi and Peach in Build-A-Bear’s new Super Mario collection this weekend.
Lineage 2: Revolution, the mobile MMO that almost plays itself, has picked up a substantial number of players since its worldwide release last month. More than enough to participate in the regular 30-vs-30 Open Siege battles starting today as part of the game’s first big update.
Assassin’s Creed Origins got a horde mode this week, along with a really good improvement to its difficulty system. Who cares! The headline here is that they changed a blue box into a gold one.
For all the video game industry’s noisy hype about groundbreaking technology, it’s still rare that a device comes along and actually breaks new ground. In just nine months, the Nintendo Switch has done just that. The world of games feels different now than it did one year ago.
The Sims 4 has a new patch, and that means more hilarious patch notes. Here are some of the best ones.
A few weeks ago, a Twitch stream moderator and health professional who goes by “Badxan” posted on the Twitch subreddit about an experience she’d had with a viewer threatening suicide in a chat. “How does Twitch deal with suicide and self-harm?” she wrote. “Shamefully.”
Did you miss out on the $27-$30 deals on Destiny 2 during Deals Week? Congratulations, you now get a better price!
Resident Evil 7 embraced an unsettling horror presentation built around claustrophobia and dread. Players were fragile and death lurked around every corner. The game’s latest downloadable content switches things up. It’s all about making the monsters fear you.
Xenon Valkyrie+ is coming to Vita on December 19. The pixel roguelite that released on PC earlier in the year will get a few enhancements as well (notably dedicated buttons for each weapon), but otherwise it’s the same action platformer with beautiful backgrounds.
I need a break from open-world games. While I’ve had a blast with Breath of the Wild, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Ghost Recon: Wildlands, I’ve been craving something considerably more linear. In a happy coincidence, Electronic Arts’s Dead Space 2, one of my favorite games, recently showed up on Xbox One via backward…

For Monster Hunter fans, the way that you describe the game to others has never really lined up with how it actually looks to people who don’t know what’s going on. I’ll breathlessly describe epic, exhilarating, 35-minute face-offs against the series’ trademark towering beasts to a friend, but when I show them the…
