When former developers of BioShock and BioShock 2 put their spin on a first-person rogue-lite set in an Arabian Nights themed world, it’s bound to be full of systems that not only work against you, but bail you out of trouble too. Armed with a whip and a scimitar, City of Brass tasks you with racing to the center of…

Hate to break it to you, but Half-Life really stinks.
I’ve put 81 hours into Divinity: Original Sin 2 over the last 12 days. When I wasn’t playing, I was thinking about it, or talking about it. It’s brilliant and frustrating in turns, and occasionally both at the same time. I adore it, but for now I’m glad to be done with it.
One of the top Skyrim mods right now adds Elsa from Frozen into your game. Just in case you know a tween girl who is still singing that damn song and is also deeply into Elder Scrolls, you can download it here.
Danganronpa has had a hell of a journey over the past few years, telling stories in the form of visual novels, anime, and even a third-person shooter. The latest entry in the series, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, feels like a fresh beginning of sorts.
We’ve seen the art behind (and in) Dishonored 2, now let’s look at some of the work that went into the game’s new expansion, Death of the Outsider.

Anyone asking me to chauffer them around PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds had better be prepared to kiss any of the following things: a large tree, the ground, a wall or a puddle of their own blood. Thankfully, somebody has outclassed my worst Battlegrounds driving moments, and watching them royally blow it in a recent…
Avid gamers are most likely using the digital marketplace and multiplayer matchmaking app Steam to play their games library on the big screen, even if it’s just the battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. But Steam and its TV-friendly streaming console Steam Link (favored by users who aren’t playing on their…
Divinity: Original Sin 2 has a mode that lets players design their own Dungeons & Dragons-esque adventure inside the role-playing game, and in case you were wondering what kind of dweeb would port their homebrew D&D game into DoS: 2, the answer is me. My experiment was instructive and, I think, says a lot about the…
Every playable character in Team Fortress 2 is a dude. But the recent release of an artist’s old work shows that Valve at least toyed with the idea of introducing women into the game’s roster.
The Journey Down, a point-and-click adventure series blending sci-fi with “Afro-Caribbean vibes” that’s been running since 2010, is wrapping up with the release of its third and final chapter.

Valve has removed games from Steam before, but never this many, especially not all at once.
Divinity: Original Sin 2's devs have decided to remove the infinite damage combo I wrote about yesterday. Initially, writes PC Gamer, Larian planned to leave the combo in because it applauds “creative approaches to the game,” but have since determined that it’s an “unintended bug.” The studio plans to patch it “ASAP.”
In most games, the permanent death of a player character is a big deal, a matter of pomp, circumstance, and occasionally people arguing on forums for decades about how to get her back. In Niche, I watched the progenitor of my entire species drop dead after a few minutes of play. One second he was happy and healthy,…
