I’ll be honest, friends: I’m thick with cold and I’d like this day to end. Maybe you can help me make that happen. Once I’m done here, I’m going to crawl under a blanket and play something comforting that will distract me until bedtime. So I’m here to ask: what’s your comfort gaming for when
Last year, Epic Games intentionally broke Apple’s rules by putting its own payment processing system in the iPhone version of Fortnite, bypassing Apple’s 30% fee and giving players a V-bucks discount. Apple responded by kicking Fortnite off the iOS App Store, while Epic launched a lawsuit and PR campaign declaring the iPhone maker “anti-competitive.” The

Following the reveal of Lost Judgment, an interview with Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio director Toshihiro Nagoshi and producer Kazuki Hosokawa has surfaced on IGN.

As Charles Caleb Colton said back in the days of the Commodore 64: “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. But what must also be remembered is that without imitation we wouldn’t have innovation, and without innovation we wouldn’t have variety. Dwarf Fortress, iconic for its deep, emergent gameplay and ASCII graphics, actually innovated on games like
Minecraft Blackstone is to Cobblestone what Batman is to Superman. That is to say that it’s much cooler, edgier, and way more fashionable. It writes poetry in the corners of philosophy books, it gets embarrassed by its parents a lot because they just don’t ‘get it’, and it’s always talking about the abyss and the
Resident Evil Village’s titular small town isn’t the ideal bucolic getaway. I’d advise doing the opposite and getting away from it, as far away as you can, but first we’ve got a family to rebuild. With lycans, stinky fish men, and a 10-foot tall vampire on your butt, it’s not gonna be easy. Here’s a

The original Counter-Strike is still available to play, but its final
World’s End Club is a new survival adventure game, and it has some pedigree behind it.

The Outriders inventory wipe bug was one of several hugely annoying problems with People Can Fly’s divisive looter shooter at launch, but now, a little over a month later, it looks like affected players will get their stuff back. Not everything will be returned, but most of the gear that counts should be accounted for.
The list of lovely looking action-y games I was looking forward to this month took a big hit when Deathloop got delayed, but thank goodness action cat RPG Biomutant is still coming.

The Mass Effect Legendary Edition is dropping soon, and to celebrate, BioWare just dropped a ton of free Mass Effect content for fans to enjoy. From being able to craft your dream squad to chilling to some space beats, it’s a good week to be a member of the Normandy. So what’s free, you’re asking?
Looking for a list of the best platform games on PC? Back in the ‘90s and early ‘00s, there were countless platformers for console gamers, while the PC had a reputation as a sort of wasteland for this one particular genre.

Flashback was a cinematic platformer that came off as a blend of Prince of Persia and Another World when it released back in 1992. It’s a bit of a cult classic: it looked quite impressive back in the ‘90s and it still kinda does, with its fluid rotoscoped animation and colourful sci-fi backdrop. It was
Flashback 2, the sequel to 1992 rotoscoped platformer Flashback, has been announced and has original creator Paul Cuisset at the helm. In a press release, Cuisset notes that, “Developing a sequel to Flashback is an idea I’ve had for a very long time.” There is, oddly, no mention in the press release of the last

Wolfenstein: Blade of Agony is one of the biggest GZDoom wads ever made—it may even be the biggest. But “wad” is a misnomer really, because this 30 level outing looks more like an entirely new game. The project has been six years in the making, and during that time 15 volunteer modders from all over

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the best PC RPGs of all time, so the thought of modding it sometimes feels like garnishing a kingly steak with ketchup (and not even Heinz). But the best Witcher 3 mods really do make for an even better game—or at least a more convenient or different
