The Witcher 3 finally has official tools that modders can use to make cool shit from now until the end of time. There’s just one problem: they could be a lot better.
YouTuber Many A True Nerd did not rest on his laurels after beating Fallout: New Vegas on a single health bar last March. Instead, he upped the ante and decided to continue the run on New Vegas DLC. It seemed all but certain that he would die during this new portion of the run, given its challenge. Somehow, though,…
I’ve spent almost 100 hours in the Witcher 3, wandering the streets of Novigrad, galloping through Velen’s windswept woodland, sailing between the isles of Skellige. Yet in all that time, I never really stopped to enjoy the game’s quieter moments.
Every week, I play a lot of Steam games. Here’s what I think of a few I didn’t get around to writing up.
I mean, I’m not really sure what else I was expecting.
For years now, Mionix mice have been my primary go-to for both gaming and work. Partly for their specs, sure, but mostly for the things most important to me as someone who spends 10-12 hours a day using a mouse: build quality and ergonomics.
Wanna make Roach a unicorn? Now you can. CDProjektRed has announced that an official modkit—in partnership with Nexus Mods—is available starting today for the PC version of The Witcher 3.
Realistic/historical RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance discusses its first-person melee combat in its most recent video, also talking about the “thousands of hours” of research that went into developing it. Looks fun! The swordfighting, that is, not the research. Video’s embedded below, so make sure to give it a watch.
The Binding of Isaac’s Edmund McMillen has a new game coming August 18 called Fingered. It’ll only cost you $1.87, and it’s a “whodunit hyperrealisic police sim where you must finger the guilty and clean up this darn city using the descriptions of the local busy bodies.” Of course!
As a good American I was filled with a jingoistic fervor after the triumph of the Evil Geniuses at The International, the world championship for Dota 2, this past weekend. I like video games. I like sports. But I’ve never watched esports, not a single match of Starcraft 2, Dota 2, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm…
Are you part of a Steam group that’s doing something cool, ambitious, or unique? Tell me! I’m looking to highlight communities on Steam doing cool shit (kinda like this, though any game or feature can be involved), and I’d love to hear what you’re up to. Feel free to comment or mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Illuminascii definitely doesn’t look like other first-person shooters.
The Witcher 3 has had a bunch of us under its spell for months, but we’re at a point where several of us on staff have now finished the game. With our tears wiped away and the book closed on Geralt’s adventures (for now), it’s time to talk about the end. Well, ends.
Sentris, a game that lets you create music, is out of Early Access. Developed by my friend (and fellow music enthusiast) Samantha Kalman, the game’s puzzles task you with completing songs as you see fit. It’s refreshingly simple despite being kinda tough to describe. Read my thoughts on the Early Access version.
The Thief Gold HD Texture Mod has hit version 1.0 after a couple years’ development, turning Looking Glass Studios’ 15+ year old stealth-em-up a lot... well, I wouldn’t say prettier, ‘cause Thief’s universe is hardly pretty. But still, those are some impressive visuals. Might try this on my next playthrough.
Rocket League received its first new map yesterday, and while the layout is similar to previous arenas, it’s got a completely different feel that’s already causing headaches in the pro scene.
Are you a professional Counter-Strike or Heroes of the Storm player who likes to, as the kids say, indulge in the reefer? You’ll have to hold off during professional ESL tournaments, according to new rules posted last night by a representative for the eSport organization.
I hate spiders, and I hate it when games collect my real-world information. Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon should be my nightmare, but it somehow made me enjoy both those things.
