I’ve been playing Planetbase for a couple hours now, and I feel like I’m only scratching the surface.
A month or so ago, I would’ve told you I was done playing The Witcher 3. Turns out that’s not the case.
Players have been waiting a while for Valve to release another Half-Life game. It’s taken long enough that it’s easy to forget all the drama that circled Half-Life 2’s development.

In Pokémon, capturing and battling monsters was only a part of the experience. Serious training often meant breeding creatures that could create more formidable beasts. Soon, you’ll be able to do something very similar in Ark: Survival Evolved...but with dinosaurs.
Darkest Dungeon, Red Hook’s unique (and dark) dungeon crawler, one of the most popular (and darkest) Early Access games on Steam, finally got a release date for its full version: January 19, 2016.
