  1. Review: Broken Age Is a Better Kind of Boy-Meets-Girl Story

    It’s hard to pick up a game months after you last played it and know what the heck is going on. Most people would rather start over than try to figure out what they were supposed to do or where they had to go next. With Broken Age, players didn’t have a choice. The adventure game debuted in January 2014 as Part 1 of 2, so those who started playing it then (including me) had to sit back for over a year before we could see the second half of the story. The wait was definitely worth it.

  2. Review: Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Shows Us True Horror—and It’s 20 Years Old

    This Claire sandwich needs more kick.

    Revelations is supposed to bridge the two phases in Resident Evil’s history: the “classic” survival-horror style, with long mansion hallways and tricky puzzles, and the newer breed, where zombies move fast and bioengineered monsters grow gigantic pus sacs from every orifice. But all Resident Evil: Revelations 2 does is make me wish we could turn back the clock 20 years—that the good old days are still possible to relive. They’re not.

  3. How Adventure Classic Grim Fandango Holds Up 16 Years Later

    All that critical acclaim is intimidating.

    Re-releasing games tends to have little value outside of convenience. Sure, I could have hunted down Kingdom Hearts II and Birth by Sleep and paid for them individually. But that could have been more expensive than opting for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix in a single package. I wouldn’t be able to play them on a more recent system, and I wouldn’t own them on one disc. Grim Fandango is a big exception.

  4. Titanfall Currently Free-To-Play on PC for 48 Hours

    Yeah, okay, but I still want that Optimus Prime DLC.

    Despite being the distributor for some of the bestselling games out today -- Dragon AgeMass Effect, and The Sims, to name a few -- their digital online store Origin doesn't exactly have the best reputation compared to similar services like Steam. But you know what would be a really great way to convince people to jump on the Origin train? Giving everybody a free 48-hour taste of their games, starting with Titanfall. Smart move, EA. Smart move.

  5. Transistor Is The Game With The Red-Headed, Sword-Wielding Female Protagonist You’ve Been Waiting For

    I want to see as many Red cosplayers as possible this year, so get on it.

    The follow-up to Supergiant Games’ 2011 indie smash Bastion, Transistor is a sci-fi action RPG that looks just as lovely as its predecessor.You play as Red, a young singer whose voice is stolen by The Process, a baddie she pursues relentlessly with her intelligent sword, Transistor. And the launch trailer looks epic.

  7. Cyan, developer of Myst, Turns to Kickstarter to Fund Its Spiritual Successor: Obduction

    Game publishers considered a Myst successor too risky, but Cyan thinks it's a safe bet on Kickstarter.

    Obduction will be the next game from Cyan, the creators of Myst, but only if fans can raise $1.1 million on Kickstarter by November 16. We're betting they'll make it, since Myst was the best selling PC game of the 1990s and only lost that spot to The Sims in 2002. Now might be a good time to try this classic.

  8. Bill Gates Admits That Control+Alt+Delete Was A Big Mistake

    Next maybe he'll have something to say about the blue screen of death.

    The "three finger salute" of Control+Alt+Delete has been a part of Microsoft lore since it was first put into the Acorn computers in 1981 by developer David Bradley. It's also used to log in to Windows 7 and below, which annoys users to this day. Gates is real sorry about that, as it turns out.

    Somewhere, beyond the sea...

    The first DLC for Bioshock Infinite is now available! Clash in the Clouds isn't a continuation of the story as much as a glorified battle arena, but that's fine.

    Not sorry about that title.

    Love him or hate him, rapper Kanye West has become a fixture in American pop culture; you can't really ignore him even if you tried. So it's only natural that there's now a video game about him. Kanye Quest 3030, a new free fan-made PC game, is a beautiful, dark, twisted, and final fantasy befitting of its eponymous star.

  15. Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter Reappears, Still Just as Shady as Before

    This crowdfunding attempt is -- wait for it -- eternally dark.

    The Kickstarter for Precursor Games' Eternal Darkness successor, Shadow of the Eternals, has returned to the crowdfunding website after two disastrous attempts. This time they're asking for $750,000 to make the game, and they've dropped the episodic structure. They're pulling out all the tricks to make themselves look better, but the whole thing still seems shady.

    Grabbing your friends is mandatory.

    Ever wanted to play your very own BMO? Well too bad, but this new flash game on Cartoon Network's official website is the closest thing we're gonna get right now. It allows you to create your own little Adventure Time games that wouldn't be out of place next to Guardians of Sunshine and Bug Battle. Yes, you too can now make your own adventure for Finn and Jake to have. Don't worry, it's nothing like that one episode where they shipped the tiny versions of themselves.

    Azeroth? More like Casheroth, am I right?

    If buying expansions and paying a monthly fee to play the World of Warcraft wasn't enough fire to burn a hole in your pocket, then Blizzard has good news for you: Items you can buy with real money are on the way.

When pressed on the subject, Blizzard confirmed that microtransactions are in the works.

  18. Put on Your Horse Mask: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Trailer Isn’t Messing Around [Video]

    Even though 2's the right number, but whatever

    Hotline Miami was the little game that could of last year. Despite being a low-budget, $10 indie game, it managed to steal the hearts of a good number of those that played it, and it ended up on many Game of the Year lists -- including my own. It didn't hurt that it was inspired by the movie Drive, either. Now, Dennaton Games returns with a second and final installment -- Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number.

  19. Valve Strikes Back: You Could Be Able to Share Your Steam Library in the Future

    They're cribbing from Microsoft here, and we're actually okay with that.

Some code has been located in the most recent Steam beta that mentions a "shared library." That's right, you could potentially let your friends borrow your PC games in the future.
