"The reader, having browsed the available articles, wisely decided to click on one that promised to discuss the masterwork that is The Stanley Parable."
The Pyro goes to work as a security guard at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. Naturally, everything goes horribly wrong (but probably not in the way you think).
Giant Spacekat, developers of space adventure game Revolution 60, announced this week they cancelled PAX East booth space due to safety concerns. The studio has since spoken with PAX organizers and responded to criticism over the fact that its head of development, Brianna Wu, still deciding to attend PAX East and…
"Knock-knock." "Who's there?" "Counter-Strike police. Open your door. We're here to inspect your computer for cheats."
This is the second time in two days I've seen a trailer for a game that's about building a castle by hand then trying to knock someone else's castle down. It's a...weirdly niche kind of genre, when you think about it, but if this is the latest thing people are rushing to try their hands at, then awesome.
Here's a short but intense Half-Life 2 fan-clip by animator Nathan Hibberd. His version of the game's annoying little enemy steals airboats, uses machine guns and acts like a crazy cartoon character.
In case this trailer doesn't show you within five seconds, here it is from the developers themselves: "We were primarily inspired by Rust & Chivalry in the development of this game".
And now, repeat after me the hallowed words of our people: "Aaaaagghhh nonononoooo! ...God damn it."
On today's Highlight Reel we have poorly-constructed dinosaurs in Besiege, Battlefield carpooling gone awry, asexually reproducing trucks in Far Cry 4 and more!
Get some popcorn ready, because the entire planet is about to throw down.
Not new-school, amazingly talented R&B-singing T-Pain either. No, I'm talking the T-Pain of yore—egregious amounts of auto-tune and all. This Team Fortress 2 player keeps the gag going, completely straight-faced, through an entire match, and it's glorious.
It looks like Fallout and seems to taste like Fallout (although that might just mean my monitor tastes like Fallout—which is... ominous), but it's not Fallout. CreepBOOM made this gorgeously mournful piece in Garry's Mod, along with copious others.
You might remember that roguelike FPS Paranautical Activity was yanked—with a large cane of plus 12 unceremoniousness—from Steam after its developer threatened to kill Valve head Gabe Newell. Now, amazingly, it's back. I imagine it helps that the dev in question is no longer involved.
Take one part deck-building card game, add one part Choose Your Own Adventure novel, and shuffle with a little light action combat—that's the deck composition of Hand of Fate, a unique twist on card-based role-playing now available on Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The scene: a battle royale (that is, last man standing) match in zombie survival MMO H1Z1. The goal: to convince a teeming crowd of bloodthirsty players to drop their weapons and survive encroaching toxic clouds together, hand-in-hand. The result: improbable success! Well, mostly.
Torrents are suddenly allowed in Steam chat again. No disappearing messages, no block pages. At worst, you'll get a warning that you're venturing beyond Steam's gilded grayblue cage. Valve has not explained why they made this sudden about-face after their recent spat of arbitrary blocks. Welp. As you were, then.
Achievements are gaming's version of badges of honor. And only the most elite of players earn certain achievements.
I've been playing a lot of Evolve over the last week and the questions I hear are all the same: Are you tired of this game yet? Is it really repetitive? The answer to each is, simply, no and yes, respectively.
