Today on Highlight Reel we have rocket faces, Fallout 4 whack-a-mole, good snipes, deathclaws and much more!
When I talked to Valve about the Steam controller earlier this year, they told me they were manufacturing the divisive hunk of owl-shaped plastic in their own machine factory, one of the biggest in the nation. Here’s what the process looks like.
Look, sometimes you spend $709 on a gaming monitor and wind up really happy with your purchase. I’m not saying it happens every time, but it happened this time.
Normally, you can only attach a select number of mods to any given weapon in Fallout 4. This PC mod, however, gets rid of all those restrictions—which means that you can create completely ludicrous (yet amazing) weapons that would normally be impossible in-game.
Lately, Valve’s been putting a big focus on beefing up Steam’s security—sometimes with measures that players find annoying or limiting. As part of a new security measure’s roll-out, they explained why.
Up until this point, Dreamfall Chapters has taken place almost entirely in two sprawling cities, one in a fantasy world and one in a sci-fi world. In Book Four: Revelations we finally leave the cities and see some of the stunning locales the fantasy world has to offer.
Cedric Peyravernay is a French artist who has worked on games like Dishonored (indeed, we featured some of his paintings from that game a few years back).
“He lost his son, so he adopted the streets.”
Lately I’ve been playing a lot of Rainbow Six Siege. It’s really good, but I’m not feeling very optimistic about its long-term prospects.
Gaunter O’Dimm, one of the stars of The Witcher 3’s expansion Hearts of Stone, is a mysterious dude. Turns out he’s also a sneaky one, hidden so well in the background of the game that even its biggest fans couldn’t find him.
Today, Fallout 4 receives an update on all platforms that fixes a variety of different bugs, glitches, and technical hiccups. And according to a variety of reports around the web (as well as our own testing), the patch also gets rid of the infamous ‘infinite caps’ glitch available in earlier versions of the game.
Valve just released a big new patch for Counter-Strike. It includes a new revolver that can drop anybody, regardless of body armor. That’s, uh, pretty intense.
Last weekend, someone completed one of the most incredible Fallout 3 runs of all time. The rules for the permadeath playthrough were simple: One lifebar. No healing. No radiation treatments. No companions.
Elite: Dangerous will let players to roam planets in the Horizons update on December 15. It’s coming to PC first, but will arrive on the Xbox One down the line. The game’s coming to PS4 eventually, too. The expansion is pricey: $60 for new players (base game + expansion), $45 if you already own the game.
Now this is a treat. The Witcher 3 has easily been my favourite game of 2015 [Update: and now 2016 as well], so it’s a pleasure to showcase a big collection of artwork that went into the game’s development and promotion.
Lauren “Pansy” Scott is a professional eSports commentator with the ESL. Once upon a time, she was a pro gamer before you could really make a living off that sort of thing. Now she makes Counter-Strike and other games understandable for the masses. Despite what you might think, it’s not an easy job.
Remember Apotheon, that cool, slightly NSFW game about Greek myth that Stephen really liked? It’s now got a completely free (no microtransactions or ads) multiplayer spin-off on Steam. Give it a go if you’re looking for crunchy side-scrolling combat in modes like deathmatch, team deathmatch, and team elimination.
