Spaceships? Weird characters? Endless amounts of cheesy cowboy music? Alright, Rebel Galaxy, let’s do this.
Feeling seasick? Don’t worry, Finn Asdair and the brave men and women of generic country’s Coast Guard are here to help. This bold new $19.99 simulation adventure on Steam is bold, new, $19.99 and on Steam. For more than that, watch me play.
When Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries raised $72,139 on Kickstarter, its creators hoped to kick off an episodic, sinister take on Red Riding Hood. But when the game was released, it bombed, and the developers filed for bankruptcy and cancelled some of the backer rewards. Then, out of nowhere, things changed.
For years, Payday 2’s developers insisted the game wouldn’t have microtransactions. That changed last week, and the community flipped out. The outrage got them to slightly change the way it works. But most importantly, the way they handled criticism—ignoring it–only stoked the flames.
With Fallout 4 due out in November, gamers are once again set to descend upon the nuclear wasteland. Although this time we also get to (briefly) experience life before the apocalypse as well as 200 years afterwards, when the main character emerges from the safety of a Vault into a world changed beyond recognition.
WARSHIFT is a new-ish game on Early Access that wasn’t quite sure if it wanted to be an RTS or an action game. So it ended up being both.
Ark: Survival Evolved is one of the biggest games on Steam. It’s also still in Early Access. Most importantly, though, it has dinosaurs. And poop.
Things get pretty messed up the closing chapter of the Life is Strange saga. At times, Polarized can even feel like a straight-up horror game—which is new!
We all strive to be more productive at work. We dream about having a perfectly crafted to-do list that you actually stick to. I’ve unlocked this achievement, but it wasn’t at the office. My perfect to-do list helps me get things done...in video games.
When the Resident Evil remake was re-released earlier this year, one modder had a specific change in mind: bring back the cringeworthy voice acting. In January, they’d only worked in a few scenes, but that’s changed in the months since. Now, the whole game has terrible voice acting!
It’s called One Life, naturally.
According to The New Yorker, Hideo Kojima’s last day at Konami was Friday, October 9. Kojima’s farewell party was reportedly a “cheerful but also emotional goodbye.” The publication says Kojima’s non-compete extends to sometime in December. For more details on what went down, you should read the piece.
The Dark Souls 3 stress test happened this weekend, and hey, at least I beat a boss. Tossing a firebomb at the last second was, uh, my plan the whole time.
In less than 24 hours, we’ll finally know how Life Is Strange ends, but I’m worried I already know what trick the developers are going to pull in the finale.
The Steam controller might make my thumb hurt, but there’s no denying its versatility. One of its lesser-known features? Full-blown motion control, ala Nintendo’s Wiis or recent PlayStations.
Valve fixed one of my big issues with Steam Machines... kinda. Games with their own launchers (e.g. Trine 3, Starbound, and Evoland) won’t, well, launch. Valve has removed the SteamOS-compatible tag from around 35 games. Some devs are working on new launchers. Fingers crossed that everything’s resolved by release day.
Nothing gets me ready for buttoning through endless expository dialog like the music from the opening of Tales of Zestiria.
A bleak landscape, battles against massive enemies which you can climb over...Prey for the Gods is as Shadow of the Colossus as you can get without actually playing Shadow of the Colossus.
Ten years ago today, Monolith Productions did not release a sequel to Shogo: Mobile Armor Division. Instead they embarked on a horror-filled first-person saga that would leave players questioning supernatural age of consent laws.
