Dota 2 has always led the MOBA pack in rad game modes and fun seasonal Halloween content, but they managed to outdo even themselves this year with “Haunted Colosseum.” It’s a new custom game mode that makes Dota much more...haunted. More in a ridiculous slap-stick way than a creepy one.
On a rooftop in Gotham City in the video game Batman Arkham Knight, I had to beat up six ninjas without getting hit. It took me 46 attempts, one after the other, during one frustrating hour.
Wow. GTA Online can be damn terrifying!
PC gamers have got a pretty great thing going. Interesting, experimental indie games? Yup. Complex strategy simulations? Totally. The shiniest, prettiest versions of big-budget console games? They get a lot of those, too.
Earlier this year, Valve gave Steam users unconditional refunds on a game called Journey of the Light, which claimed to have seven expansive levels, but actually contained just one unbeatable area. The game was then removed from sale.
When Warner Bros. decided to start telling Batman: Arkham Knight on PC again, you might have thought this disastrous story was finally over. Not quite, as it turns out. Despite months of patches, the game still has significant problems.
Most people just click through installations without actually reading what they say—especially if there’s some long, boring end user license agreement attached. But sometimes it pays to do a little reading, as some meticulous Steam players found out.
There’s a new PSP game out today. To some people that might come as strange news, but to a certain circle, today has been eagerly anticipated for over four years: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter (SC) is finally out.
Horror games have one simple purpose: scaring you. They’re fueled by long moments of tension which erupt in a brief explosion of fright, before it recedes and the terror sets in again. My favorite horror game ever, 2010’s Alan Wake, does things differently. It throws fright out the window, gives you every gun…
Few games shook me the way Outlast did in 2013, so it pleases me greatly that we’re finally getting a sequel next year.
Four months and several patches later, Batman: Arkham Knight on PC has resurfaced on Steam. Before Warner Bros. pulled it down, however, Steam users had pummeled the game with thousands of negative reviews. Now, those reviews have been flagged as “pre-release.”
Rocket League is getting an awesome-looking (free!) update in November called mutators, which introduces a bunch of new game types, including low-gravity mode, bigger versions of the ball, slow-motion, and more.
Fallout 4’s concept art looks hot. Take a peek at some of the stuff you’ll see in the official Fallout 4 art book here.
Out of all the games to get patched today, the last thing I was expecting to see was a 1GB patch for Quake Live.
For the last week I’ve been trying to enjoy a most unexpected game: Emergency 2016. I say unexpected because it’s a broken piece of shit, and yet...I can’t stop playing it.
Divinity: Original Sin is a really cool game, but it’s not all that interested in holding your hand. It can be complicated and challenging, and some early difficulty spikes may leave new players feeling a bit burned. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to make your first hours in the game go much more…
A new Steam update will make things significantly better for people with lots of games. The update just entered public beta, and it reduces Steam start-up time for people with large libraries and improves library performance in Big Picture Mode. My sale-engorged library just let out a whimper of relief.
The Park opens with a boat ride. The player travels a set path and is told a story they’ve probably heard before, interrupted by the odd jump scare. It’s excellent foreshadowing.
