I love a good Cities: Skylines build, and this cinematic flythrough of a recreation of the Federal Territory of Putrajaya in Malaysia is something special to see. There’s real care taken by the creator, Gilbert Plays, to make something that models the feeling of an actual city. While I’m no expert on Putrajaya (and so…
Players digging through the animation files of Dark Souls have found some very funny falling animations for creatures that rarely fall in the game.
QUOTE | “The premium living room experience today is on Xbox One X, and we hope to continue that for years to come. But when you think about how we are going to broaden our business, we need to think beyond console to be successful.” - Microsoft GM of gaming cloud Kevin Gammill says the company isn’t leaving the…
Religion has been a powerful motivating force throughout human history, but some Civilization VI AIs are a little too into religion, at the expense of, well, pretty much everything else. It’s a real bug, and it’s all because of a typo.
It’s been an outstanding couple of months for mouse-based video games. In February we got PlayStation VR adventure Moss, and now we have the PC release of Ghost of a Tale, an action RPG about a mouse bard slinking through a dangerous fantasy world in order to save his true love. It looked outstanding in 2016. Now it’s…
I’ve played hours of the remastered version of Burnout Paradise prior to today’s release of the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. So how are the higher resolution textures and enhanced lighting effects? I don’t know, man. I’m just playing Burnout Paradise again, and it’s as wonderful as it ever was.
If you’re a fan of survival horror, you should absolutely pick up The Evil Within 2. Depending on the platform, Amazon has it priced at just $22-$24 today, only a hair above a $20 Gold Box deal they ran in January. Xbox One owners get the best price at $22, but the PS4 and PC versions are in the same ballpark.
Kingdom Come’s inconsistent adherence to hardcore survival and historical elements means that while some parts of the game are fine, you may find that others are an unnecessary drag. Luckily, there are already a ton of mods that can help with that.
Physicist Stephen Hawking passed away yesterday at the age of 76, leaving behind a legacy of illuminating observations about the cosmos. Well-wishers in EVE Online are honoring his life by dropping dozens of interstellar beacons to commemorate one of history’s greatest minds.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance was a grand idea. In a genre awash with fantasy epics, it sought to ground a role-playing adventure not in some distant and imaginary land, but in history. There would be no wizards, no dragons, no giant rats—just you, a horse, some mud, and a cast of flawed human beings.
It took more than a year, but the good, good anime boys’ roadtrip tour finally made a stop on PC. Have Steam reviewers accepted the sprawling, uneven fishing simulator in spite of its flaws, though? (Spoiler: Yes.)
Created by Her Story designer Sam Barlow, WarGames works like an interactive television show. It follows the story of Kelly, a hacker who goes from prankster to leader of a group exposing government secrets. As players choose what they see on screen, they slowly shape Kelly’s personality and make key choices that…
Landing on Mun for the first time in Kerbal Space Program is probably one of my top 3 all-time personal gaming moments, and I can’t recommend it highly enough at $15, one of the best deals we’ve ever seen. Just note that you won’t see that price until you get to checkout.
Darwin Project is the latest game riding the battle royale wave. It takes its inspiration from The Hunger Games series and turns every match into a game show where the audience can help determine who lives and who dies.
Iron Harvest, the upcoming RTS based on Jakub Rozalski’s art (that’s also seen in Scythe, a very good board game), is now up on Kickstarter. It looks like Company of Heroes, only with diesel-powered mechs.
This UtechSmart gaming mouse is perfect for MMO players (or even for general computing tasks), and you can pick it up from Amazon for just $29 today with promo code venus2k8. That’s still a decent chunk of change, but it gets you a 16,400 DPI sensor (!), Omron switches, adjustable weight, dynamic backlighting, and 18…
Surviving Mars is imminent, and so are remasters of classics like Devil May Cry and Burnout Paradise.
A solid Cities: Skylines build is always an amazing sight, and this timelapse of a Mediterranean-style castle is a chill viewing experience.
Battlefield 1’s easter eggs are normally big things like giant sharks or flying houses, but this small musical reload animation is just as funny as any of those spectacular ones.
Northgard is a different kind of strategy game. It is about map control, sure, and there are resources to be gathered and enemies to defeat. In many ways, though, its unique combination of mechanics and concerns generates a fresh context for those actions.
