Eat, sleep, kill the odd adventurer, repeat—that was my notion of what bear life was like before playing Bear Simulator. Now I know the truth: there’s also bunny killing and wearing ball caps.
James “2GD” Harding, an esports personality who was fired from his role as host of the Dota 2 Shanghai Major and renounced by Gabe Newell, has posted his explanation of the events that led to his removal from the event.
If you want, you can tunnel all the way to the center of Portal Knights’ floating island world. There’s just one problem: it’s hollow.
Obliteracers is an over-the-top kart racer (think Mario Kart meets Twisted Metal) that lets you play against 16 people. In the same room.
I’ve been playing a few Early Access games on Steam that I’m excited about. I thought I’d report in on them.
Samorost 3, the latest adorably cute game from the developers of Machinarium and Botanicula, is coming out on March 24 for PC and Mac. Here’s the trailer.
Ubisoft is seeking Canadian investors in an attempt to thwart the looming threat of a hostile takeover from Vivendi, the company that once owned Activision and is looking to re-enter the world of big video game publishing.
Valve will never release Half-Life 3. But what if other developers could take a swing at it? PC Gamer asked Cliff Bleszinski, Tripwire’s John Gibson and Bluepoint’s Kynan Pearson for their ideas, which range from VR adventures to time manipulation.
Remember Punch Club, the game about managing a starving kickboxer? It’s getting a free expansion. It’ll be about three hours long. The plot sounds great. “New storyline where you find a suitcase that pinpoints crimes in the city. Only logical thing to do is put on a mask and start fighting crime.” Truth.

Some games only need a single good idea to work. For example: Superhot, a punishing first-person shooter in which time only moves when you move. It’s a single, good idea. And it works.
It’s true, I’m one of those people: a save scummer. And I’m not ashamed of it.
The Steam Controller has rumble functionality now... kinda. A new beta update adds “experimental rumble emulation,” which reproduces the feel of rumble despite the fact that Steam Controller’s haptic tech is “a very different technology than rumble motors.”
The Flame in the Flood is a survival game that just launched on Steam. It’s not about building, or zombies, or pranking your friends. Just surviving and seeking civilization. That makes sense, given its background.
Fallout 4's revamped survival mode isn’t live yet, but players have already discovered how it’ll all work. Oh, the wonders of datamining.
During a boss battle introduced in the latest update to Final Fantasy XIV a song plays that sounds a lot like Powerman 5000's “When Worlds Collide,” so much so that the band is calling it “a straight up rip off.”
OutDrive has spent the past couple days near the top of Steam’s popular new releases section, and it only costs a few dollars. What could possibly go wrong?
