Final Fantasy XIV gets its biggest update since the Stormblood expansion tomorrow, with the launch of patch 4.1, “The Legend Returns.” Not only are players getting new player housing, NPC dungeons and a continuation of the main storyline, they’re also taking a trip to Final Fantasy XII’s Rabenastre, courtesy of guest…
It’s quite an achievement that Divinity: Original Sin 2 launched mostly functional despite how massive it is. That said, the experience had a few patches of pimples. Some quests were unclear or busted, it was too hard to talk your way through act 4, and most glaringly, chickens were way overpowered. Today, a big…
Video games are very good at teaching, even if they have to repeat the lesson over and over. Sometimes the lesson is “don’t fall into that bottomless pit.” Other times it’s “she’s just not that into you.”
Nour is an art game about the beauty of food and playing with what you eat. With a few slaps of the keyboard, a ramen bowl gets packed with noodles while boba balls leap into tea cups. It’s silly but gorgeous. It’s this week’s Indie Pick.
Forget the nemesis system, loot boxes, or the well of charisma that is Talion of Middle-Earth, the element of the new Shadow of War game that I’m currently most torn on is its ancient poetry mini-game.
Ever wondered how many different ways people can find to say, “this video game is hard”? Then oh boy, Cuphead’s Steam reviews are gonna be a treat for you.

In some, your character can flirt or have sex with other characters. In a handful, you can hold hands. I can hardly think of any,…
The Humble Monthly subscription plan delivers you a selection of new games (to keep!) every month, gives you 10% off everything in the Humble Store, and donates 5% of each month’s proceeds to charity, but if all that wasn’t enough to get you to sign up, how about a copy of Rise of the Tomb Raider?
Star Wars Battlefront II’s multiplayer went into a semi-open beta today for players who preordered. I’ve spent most of the day blasting away. A few small changes from the previous game makes it much more focused and exciting to play.
Do you have fond memories of playing the 2005 version of Star Wars: Battlefront 2? Do you wish with every fiber of your being that it had official online servers again? Well then, good news: your wish just came true, somehow.
It took 81 hours crammed into a week-and-a-half for me to finish Divinity: Original Sin 2's main story. It is, then, hard to not feel conflicted when I tell you that somebody just beat the game in a little over 30 minutes.
Humble’s newest bundle comes courtesy of Stardock Entertainment, with titles like The Political Machine 2016, Galactic Civilizations III, and Offworld Trading Company included across three different tiers. As always, you can name your own price, and a portion of the proceeds to charity, but you’ll have to pony up at…
Forza Motorsport 6's $20 VIP upgrade gave players exclusive cars, special online events and, best of all, double credit earnings for races. Forza 7's $20 VIP upgrade swaps the always-on double credit bonus for five limited-use “mod cards.” Boo. Update: Big changes coming in response to player feedback.
PUBG streamer Dr Disrespect found himself playing alongside a fan who didn’t realize he was the real thing, and decided to have some fun. “What do you think of the guy?” he asked the fan. “I just love him,” the fan replied. Doc baited him a little more: “He can get on my nerves.”
This Humble sale isn’t a bundle—you’ll have to pay a certain amount of money for each individual game—but there are still good deals to be had, including Kerbal Space Program for $24, Wasteland 2 for $10, and more.
Cuphead is a difficult gauntlet through a ton of bosses, from evil clowns to bossy queen bees. Surviving can be difficult, but some players are blasting through the game with breakneck speedruns or dangerous “no hit” challenges.
Nioh, a beloved samurai action game that came out earlier this year for PS4, is coming to PC this November complete with all the downloadable content that publisher Koei Tecmo has released so far.
If you didn’t take your first trip to The Wasteland until Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas and want to see where it all began, now’s your chance.
Where some RPGs are a little bit fiddly, Divinity: Original Sin 2 is downright daunting. It’s got systems inside of systems inside of paradox barrels, and it gleefully throws you into the deep end with a minimal amount of explanation. If ever a game begged for tips, it’s this one. We’ve got you covered.
