Civilization VI made some major changes in its summer update, and you can pick up the game for $30 today, the best price we’ve ever seen. Amazon lists it as the Mac version, but all you’re really buying here is a Steam code, so it’ll work on PC as well. Just be sure to place your order before Gandhi nukes the deal.
Psychological horror game SOMA is coming to Xbox One on Dec 1 with a new mode that removes the monsters. The idea behind “safe mode” is to let players experience “the atmosphere and story of SOMA free of harm.” Last year, a Steam user released a mod for the PC version that did the same thing, and frankly, it made the…
Eleven-year-old Titan Quest just got a new expansion pack. Titan Quest Ragnarok, available now on Steam for $14.99, is a Norse-themed expansion for last year’s anniversary edition of the classic action RPG, adding a new story chapter, the Runemaster mastery class, weapons, items and more.
Star Wars: Battlefront II frustrates me in ways I never knew I could be frustrated. It is both a lovingly crafted companion to the films and a tangled mess of corporate meddling. There is a strong heart at the center but finding it means peeling back layers of unnecessary and infuriating nonsense.
NCSoft’s all-star arena combat game Master X Master (MXM) will shut down on January 31 after only seven months in operation. The developer says the game “failed to connect with players.” Recent in-game purchases will be refunded, and all content will be unlocked until the lights go out.
When I first reviewed Crusader Kings II in 2012, I called it “one of the most challenging, entertaining and rewarding strategy games [I’ve] ever played.” Five years later, it turns out that was only the beginning of my long journey with the game.
Playing Outcast in 1999 was a revelation. Playing Outcast in 2017 makes me think it should have stayed there.
Hero-U is a new game from Lori & Corey Cole, the creators of the peerless Quest for Glory series. It’ll be out on Steam early next year.
Have you ever been a jerk or cheated in Counter-Strike? No? What about in other Steam games? Now, that might come back to bite you, thanks to CSGO’s “Trust Factor” matchmaking system.
The Humble Care Package Bundle is a little different than what you’re used to. There’s only one tier, it costs $30, and availability is limited. In fact, it could very well sell out today. But that gets you a whopping 27 different PC games, including gems like Pyschonauts, Shadowrun Returns, Stardew Valley, and …
Call of Duty: WWII mostly focuses on large battles and explosive confrontations, but the game’s best mission is quiet, intimate, and subtle.
When we last left Lego Marvel Super Heroes, the Avengers, X-Men and Fantastic Four had banded together to gather the cosmic doohickeys needed to finish story mode and get to the exciting free-roaming bits. Four years later, the X-Men and Fantastic Four are gone, but everything else is pretty much the same.
As the seconds counted down in a round of the unusual game The Darwin Project this past weekend, I was aware of three other players still involved in the match. One was my opponent, who, like me, had managed to outlast eight other players in this mix of cold-weather survival and competitive murder. Another was the…
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is about injury. From crippled heroes to resistance leaders grappling with PTSD, the game’s cast of heroes bears deep wounds that recall the all-too-real injuries of war veterans, victims, and those who would ignore them.
Getting Over It’s Steam description is brief. “A game I made for a certain kind of person,” it reads. “To hurt them.” Having watched multiple streamers howl in despair and rage-quit right at the end of it, I think it’s safe to declare the game an unmitigated success.
PC gamers have got a pretty great thing going. Interesting, experimental indie games? Yup. Complex strategy simulations? Totally. The shiniest, prettiest versions of big-budget console games? They get a lot of those, too.
Decksplash, the game whose future was riding on its ability to get 100,000 players during a free week, has been canceled. In the end, it managed to kickflip (and also paint, I guess?) its way past the halfway point, but still fell short. Despite disappointment, the Decksplash team is happy they tried. “Should we have…
