Rainbow Six Siege is a tactical team-based shooter where lone wolf tactics are often punishable by swift, well-deserved death. But what happens when all your teammates leave a match and you have no choice but to go it alone? For most, it’s certain doom. For one player, it was an opportunity.
I’ve been wondering when a game would make me cry, and that changed over the weekend. A few games have made me teary eyed, but that’s about it. That Dragon, Cancer not only made me weep, but I had to stop playing it a few times.
Not at all a spoiler: I don’t get to Mars in my most recent playthrough of Tharsis, the extremely difficult and very fun dice-based strategy game coming to PC and PS4 on Tuesday. This is not a spoiler, because getting to Mars is very hard. Players will fail. A lot. Count on it.
As intrepid modders the world over continue in their quest to make dicking around in Grand Theft Auto V more fun and chaotic, we may have reached a new milestone.
These five gentlemen, collectively known as team Enemy, clawed their way into the 2016 Smite World Championship grand finals only to lose three straight games to Europe’s Epsilon, letting all of North America down. As punishment, they only get $230,000. I blame myself.
Valve’s Marc Laidlaw, who helped write the Half-Life series and the original Portal, has left the company after 18 years. The news originally broke on the Half-Life subreddit, and Laidlaw later confirmed the news to us. Why’d he leave? He wanted a “break from the collaborative chaos of game production.”
Giant cargo containers, silly physics and a grappling hook. The perfect tools for a Just Cause 3 version of Jenga.
The goal in a Smite Conquest match is to kill enemy players, destroy their fortifications and eventually take down the titan guarding their base. In the first match of the 2016 Smite World Championship, one team accomplished none of those things.
Roughly a fortnight after 24/7 eSports made a splash by recruiting Vietnamese Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team Skyred, following some impressive international performances earlier in the year, the Australian organisation has dumped their foreign superstars amid claims of match-fixing.
Undertale came out of nowhere and turned RPGs upside-down with its deft mix of emotions, dogs, emotions, and more dogs. It’s become one of the biggest games on Steam.
Counter-Strike’s new gloves look snazzy. Valve decided to ring in a new year of CSGO by giving your in-game hands a modern makeover. Players are already coming up with ideas for (pretty cool looking) skins, and other players are saying, “Shhhh, quiet! Valve will get ideas about monetizing glove skins!”
Crusader Kings II was released in 2012, and promptly became my Game Of The Year. And that was in its paltry vanilla state! In the years since, it’s gotten so much new content and so many big expansions that it’s practically become its own sequel.
Well, this sure is... uhhh. That is to say... er. Hm.
There are already a number of mods out there which alter the appearance of Fallout 4, but they don’t go quite as far as this tweak, which makes the game look like it came from Telltale (or Gearbox) instead of Bethesda.
Rainbow Six Siege just got a big update. 1.2 is not meant to fix all top issues, but it does improve hit registration (again), server tick rate, and matchmaking. Basically, if the game pissed you off with server issues or lopsided matchmaking (hi, that’s me), it might be time to give it another shot.
Today on Highlight Reel we have massive car crashes, awesome motorcycles, sad supermen, ground pound denial, and much more!
London police today confirmed that voice actress Sian Blake, who played the character Yugiri in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, was found dead with her two children in their home this week.
In the Just Cause series, your grappling hook is love, life, and all that jazz, but it does have limits. Making it infinite turns the game into (even more of) a demented, goddamn wonderful cartoon.
A lot of very nice words have (surprisingly, given Unity’s qualities) been written about the latest Assassin’s Creed game, but there’s one thing a lot of them overlook: just how pretty this video game is.
