PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ Sanhok map is now available to all players on PC after a few months of testing, and it has mannequins. They’re terrifying.
For the first time in years, the Steam summer sale has a limited-time game attached to it. It’s called Saliens, and it’s, well, not very good. That hasn’t stopped dedicated groups of Steam users from trying to exploit the gooey-green alien crap out of it, though.
When hero shooter Paladins announced a battle royale mode, it felt a bit like a tacked on extra to a game struggling for identity. That battle royale mode has transformed into a standalone game, Realm Royale. While it’s still in alpha and rough around the edges, Realm Royale has a few good ideas that could help it…
Last week, Steam added new chat features that took a page from Discord’s book—pretty much the entire book, actually. Now, Discord has added a “games” tab that replicates some of Steam’s most pervasive features. And thus, the circle is complete.
Do you love video games and hate having money? Are you ambivalent on the idea of ever getting around to actually playing those video games? Well, GOOD NEWS: it’s Steam summer sale time.
Empires Apart is a game you play when you want to play Age of Empires, but not the actual Age of Empires.
If not for a few oversights on Blizzard’s part, the original Diablo’s source code would likely be lost to time. However, thanks to those oversights and some serious dedication from one coder, people can now see (and tinker around with) what makes Diablo tick.
Sometimes you go into a game demo, and it’s just absolutely not what you were expecting.
OK/NORMAL is an experimental arcade game by Toni Kortelahti that embraces the visuals of early PlayStation games. The game, which captures the strange and abstract worlds of mid-90s 3D, is one of several new indie titles that embrace a new form of “retro” aesthetics. It’s an oppressive, bizarre, and overwhelming game…
For the last year, I’ve been confused about Ubisoft’s upcoming pirate game. Perhaps you have been as well.
Scythe, one of the best board games in years, is now in Early Access on Steam. It’s a very bare-bones port, though, so you might be better off playing the Tabletopia version instead, at least for now.
Red Rover is a driving game on Steam that drops you in the seat of a very overpowered Mars rover and lets you explore the actual surface of the red planet.
In Mario Kart, red shells target your nearest rival and ruthlessly stop them in their tracks. Everybody hates them. Marketing company Red Shell, meanwhile, helps video game companies more accurately target potential customers with their ads. This fact has not sat well with some players who have recently discovered the…
Sea of Thieves is slowly expanding with new monsters and new events aiming to bring excitement and color to a game derided for repetitive content. A new event involving exploring and hunting down hidden thrones throughout the world shows one way the controversial pirate game could build a community.
In the universe of FAR: Lone Sails, the world is ending. The seabed has dried up, most people are gone, and you’re left to wander the wastes alone in a rickety old ship that’s constantly running out of fuel and breaking down. As depressing as all that sounds, though, the game is actually a nice little trip.
On Steam, “asset flip” refers to a game that’s haphazardly assembled from pre-purchased environments, objects, and sound effects for the purpose of making a quick buck. Or at least that’s what it’s supposed to refer to. Over time, the definition of “asset flip” seems to have devolved into “anything that ever uses a…
Here is a very good mod that takes the gruff military characters from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and replaces them with the cast of the Neptunia JRPG series. Even in the singleplayer campaign, even in zombies mode.
Movie tie-ins are a gamble that usually ends with a lackluster game. For every Spider-Man 2, there’s a dozen games that are clunky and not worth your time. Jurassic World Evolution falls somewhere in between. It’s not the most detailed park-building sim, but if you embrace some of its clumsiness, you’ll find yourself…
Around 15 years ago, there was a Half-Life mod released called International Online Soccer, which turned Valve’s classic shooter into a football game. Now, just in time for the 2018 World Cup, it’s back.
Last year, Valve put limitations on Steam trading cards to stop sketchy developers from makinge a living leeching money from the user-powered trading card economy. Now it’s doing something similar with Steam achievements.
