Adal, the setting for Absolver, is large and untamed, but it fits. Overgrown ruins dot the landscape. There are cracks in the ground, ships washed far ashore. Something happened, but there’s little in the way of exposition or grand story. You play as a prospect who enters Adal to fight their way to the final…

If you’ve never played XCOM 2, here’s my advice: Skip the vanilla version and start by playing the new expansion, War of the Chosen. It’s the best 2K’s XCOM series has ever been.
To say that No Man’s Sky had a troubled launch would be a massive understatement. Even as someone who generally had a good time with the game then, I had to admit that it was missing promised features and lacked polish. Over a year later, a lot of things have changed for the game, and all for the better. Even though…
Here’s a brief look at the upcoming social-survival PC game Frostpunk. You manage a city’s growth or decay amid frozen strife, choosing such dire things as whether to enforce child labor and put sawdust in people’s soup to make them feel full.

The latest patch for Friday the 13th The Game went live earlier this week on all platforms. It introduces smaller versions of the game’s three existing maps as well some new mechanics, graphical improvements, and a number of bug fixes. Unfortunately, it also introduces a slew of new bugs and glitches.
I’m a big fan of the Order of Battle series, and while that’s mostly down to its snappy turn-based strategy, it’s also because the games dare to visit theatres of the Second World War that competitors never even consider. The latest example: asking you to take a break from a war against Japan to go and arrest Gandhi.
