Pony Island is not about ponies. It’s about escaping a demonic arcade game developed by the devil to capture the souls of the living. It just features strong pony themes.
The HTC Vive is in turnaround. After disappointing some people last year by setting the Vive launch date for well into 2016, the company’s back with a second generation developer model so good, it’ll win back our brains.
Most of us probably walked through the Glowing Sea, Fallout 4’s most irradiated area, decked in Power Armor or a Hazmat suit. Because we’re wimps, apparently.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to Steam and Windows 10 on January 28, Square Enix announced today. Well, that was quick!
As I mentioned in my Undertale review, the game’s fans can be a bit... insistent. “You can’t dislike it! That’s not possible!” That kind of thing. I get it. To an extent, I am one of those people. But, as these things often do, it’s resulted in some heated exchanges.
Shortly after the big Steam winter sale kicked off, intrepid users started sleuthing around, believing that they’d latched onto some kind of alternate reality game (or ARG, for short). Surprisingly, they ended up finding a secret search bar within Steam, as well as other hints. But... that’s it. And now it’s over.
Watch as one gamer blazes through the capital wasteland in the time it takes most of us to deliberate over a single SPECIAL point. Phenomenal.
I’ve never been keen on the idea of abandoning my tower case for a system with all the gaming guts piggy-backing a monitor, but when the monitor in question is a 34 inch curved ultra HD affair and the guts are full-sized and water-cooled I start feeling a bit swayed.
This holiday season, I received the most precious gift of all: a bit of free time. I ended up using it mostly to play an ungodly amount of Fallout 4 (it’s alright), but also to check out a handful of Steam games from last year that I never quite got around to.
Valve has finally apologized for last week’s Steam Christmas disaster, explaining in a lengthy statement today that the issues stemmed from a Denial of Service attack and wound up exposing the information of around 34,000 users.
If you’d have asked me at the start of the year what I thought my favorite games of 2015 would end up being, I would’ve guessed stuff like Fallout 4, Hotline Miami 2, and Just Cause 3. This year, though, a cool thing happened: most of my favorite games were ones I’d never even heard of until I played them.
In the 20+ years since the Fallout franchise was introduced to the world, all of the games have been met with praise—which means that ranking them isn’t easy. It’s especially difficult to pit the games against each other when you consider that the post-nuclear franchise underwent a genre change.
The world of Counter-Strike is a dangerous place. Lethality lurks around every corner. Think that birthday balloon won’t knock you dead? Think again.
Most of us probably spent hours in the first town of Fallout: New Vegas. Here, you can watch someone beat the entire thing in a ridiculous 20:47.
Four days after Steam’s Christmas fiasco, we still don’t know exactly what happened. We don’t know how many people were affected, how much personal information leaked, or if some friendly Team Fortress players saw our addresses and plan to stop by our homes for an impromptu New Year’s celebration.
By now, you’ve probably heard of a little game called Undertale. You may also have heard that it’s good. Good news: It really, really is.
Telltale’s episodic adventure series Tales From The Borderlands was one of 2015’s best surprises. That was mostly thanks to its funny script, well-developed characters, and killer voice acting. But the music definitely helped.
You might remember that, a few days ago, Steam had a caching issue that let users see each others’ personal information. It was kind of A Thing. Since then, Steam has been in a fragile—some would argue busted—state.
