Kent Sheely is playing through the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, only he’s doing it with one very strict rule: no killing.
I just got annihilated by a boss monster in a time somewhere between “the blink of an eye” and “the memory span of a newborn goldfish.” I should be fuming. Instead, I’m grinning like an idiot.
I saved the Ra’s Al Ghul mission in Arkham Knight’s Season of Infamy expansion because I had high expectations. My reward was one of the best moments from any Batman video game.
Jonathan Blow’s next puzzle game, The Witness, arrives January 26, and he’s announced it’ll cost you $40 on PS4 and PC. While a game’s pricing is not usually noteworthy—and Blow has been raising expectations on The Witness for a while now—I suspect this may come as a surprise for some people. Heads up!
Back in 2014, indie studio Interdimensional Games released CONSORTIUM, a neat little thing that blended adventure gaming with FPS and RPG elements. Today, in news filed under “unexpected but pleasant surprises”, they announced a sequel.
The next expansion for Paradox’s city builder, Cities: Skylines, is called Snowfall. Announced today, the addon will introduce a weather system and a temperature mechanic to the game, along with a couple new public transportation options, like trams. Snowfall will be out on PC “later this year.”
Counter-Strike plus drivable cars, customizable bases, and lots and lots of sand? This is no ordinary custom map.
Slime Rancher is a popular new Steam game where you adventure around, vacuum up smiley little slime creatures, plop them in a cage, and harvest their, um, poop. All the while, you try to stop them from growing miserable. It kills me to see them frown.
Fallout 4 was not always the game that we actually got to play. Like most games, it changed and morphed during development—and it’s fun to look back on what could have been.
Fallout 4’s latest update is en route, promising to bring a few changes and fix a bunch of bugs, several of which are related to dismemberment. Gotta get that dismemberment working right!
In honor of David Bowie’s passing, Square Enix is giving away Steam keys for Omikron: The Nomad Soul, which he starred in and wrote music for. The offer is “while supplies last” and runs through January 22. US players should use this link, European players should use this link. Both require the code “omikron.”
Subnautica, the underwater survival game in Early Access, has a new H2.0 update—and it looks pretty damn good!
As you’ve heard us say over and over and over, Undertale is brilliant. It certainly didn’t need 3D to achieve that. The prospect of an extra-dimensional Undertale, though? Innnteresting.
Titan had all the potential in the world, but they were never able to capitalize on it. Cheating-related troubles punctured their boat back in 2014, and now the org’s founder is claiming they ultimately capsized it. And yet, fans seem more mournful than angry.
Ark: Survival Evolved’s PC version just got a new dinosaur and, uh, dung beetles. The dimetrodon sounds like a cool protective creature, but the dung beetle is downright intriguing. Described as a “wondrous organic biofactory,” it can eat excrement to produce a special oil (note: not for sex stuff) that powers…
That Dragon, Cancer is a powerful story about a tragic moment in the lives of the Green family. Their son, Joel, was diagnosed with cancer at 12 months old. The conversation on the game’s Steam forums has focused on the morality of making a game about that. Interestingly, the developers are letting it happen.
Few games lend themselves to fan theories like Undertale does.
Cheaters are the bane of multiplayer games’ existence. Regrettably, however, some games go easier on them than others. For a while, Rainbow Six Siege was one of those games.
