It's been called the "scariest game in years." It's at the top of iOS and Android app stores, it has torn up the Steam charts on PC. It has racked up millions and millions of views (and screams) on YouTube. It has hundreds of earnest fan games, and dozens of rabid fan theories. The Five Nights at Freddy's hype train…
Hello there, fellow zombie hunters. Dying Light is upon us. Is the intense difficulty curve getting to you too? Here are the best techniques I've found to help get me through the night in the undead wasteland of Harran. Maybe even survive the whole next day, too! But let's not get ahead of ourselves.
Recently there have been accusations (some proven) of match-fixing and illicit betting in professional Counter-Strike matches. Valve announced their verdict against the trend, bringing their ban-gavel down on multiple bigtime North American players. Now, they've added some stern advice: pros should stop betting…
Under The Ocean spent more than a year on Steam Early Access, but—despite steady progress and a relatively fun experience—the survival game's creator yanked it from Valve's service. His reasoning? He's not sure if he can deliver on his promises anymore, and he wants to make sure he's not being dishonest with players.
PC Gamer has posted a list of things you should never do to your PC. The last two are especially important.
One of StarCraft II's most accomplished and well-known esports players is retiring from the game after two and half years at the very top of its competitive scene. Sasha Hostyn, or "Scarlett" to her many fans, recently revealed that she's stepping away to try playing Dota 2 instead.
4PM came out a while ago, but I only discovered this strange oddity recently. All you need to know is there's a horrible man in the game called Keith. Keith is a jerk. Keith is your boss.
You really need to check out Sunless Sea. The dread-drenched sewer ocean explorer has been on Steam Early Access for a little while, but now it's done. It's a mix between Sid Meier's Pirates and your darkest lovecraftian nightmares—in other words, fantastic. Not convinced? Read how I went mad and died horribly.
It can't be all that fun to be a character in a game called Darkest Dungeon. You spend all your time in caves and ruins, risking your life while fighting horrible monsters, watching your friends suffer and even die. The emotional toll must be high.
The system requirements for Mortal Kombat X recently popped up on the game's Steam page, giving us all a better sense of what it'll take to render all that spine-ripping in gloriously hyperbolic detail. Thankfully, it won't take all that much by modern high-end PC gaming standards. Huzzah!
The most pleasant surprises from Ubisoft seem to be coming in downloadable forms. Child of Light, Valiant Hearts, Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry. We can now add Grow Home to the list, an utterly charming experimental platformer about climbing higher and higher and higher.
When you have an issue on Steam, you typically send in a report, which Steam Support has to deal with. But one Steam user decided to take their problem to the man in charge of Steam itself, Gabe Newell. And amazingly, Gabe actually took time out of his day to fix the problem.
Besiege is a game where you construct catapults, trebuchets and other siege engines. But since it's a physics-based game, the best and funniest creations—weight benches, Metal Gears, doomsday bikes—are far from any medieval construct.
We highlighted a mod that let you kiss everyone in Skyrim a while back, but it was kinda embarrassing. Your character latched onto people like some kind of alien everything-sucker and made this cartoon smooching noise. This one, however, is a bit more like the real deal. Kinda?
You know the first rule of fight club, don't you? Well, these H1Z1 players broke it a bunch. But in the process, they herded other hapless players into a tooth-and-nail brawl to the death, and I'd like to think that having a fight club at all is more important than remembering to not talk about it.
Bulletstorm and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter lead Adrian Chmielarz recently confessed that he liked the idea of survival games more than any survival games he actually played. I feel similarly, but his remark got me thinking about why that might be.
Portal Stories: Mel, an upcoming mod for Portal 2, is starting to less like a mod in this new trailer, and more like a straight-up official Valve entry in the series.
DOTA 2 is one of the biggest games on Steam. It's also the centerpiece of one of the biggest annual tournaments in all of eSports. And yet, once upon a time its most dedicated players resigned themselves to the idea that they'd probably never make a cent off it.
