Earlier Civilization games feature prominently in just about every PC gaming sale under the sun, but the price tag for Civ VI has been remarkably stubborn. Today though, Amazon’s offering it up for $40, the best price they’ve ever listed. Also available at Green Man Gaming. We don’t know how long this deal will last,…

Recently, a game called Necrobarista caught my eye. It’s about a cafe the dead return to for one last cup of coffee, and it’s got an art style that screams Persona. That’s no coincidence. Necrobarista’s developers told me the game arose from their “love-hate relationship” with anime and visual novels.
Earlier Civilization games feature prominently in just about every PC gaming sale under the sun, but the price tag for Civ VI has been remarkably stubborn. Today though, Amazon’s taking $12 off the base game (unlocks via Steam), or $20 off the Digital Deluxe version, which includes a soundtrack and four post-release…
When you’re buying a new gadget, you want the fastest, most powerful one you can get for your money. Benchmarks can help you figure out what devices have the most power, but sometimes they’re just a distraction.
Take a good, hard look at the computer you’re using right now. If it’s seen better days (or if you just have a tax refund to spend), Microsoft’s President’s Day sale is a great excuse to upgrade.
White Wolf Publishing released its first two World of Darkness video games in more than a decade this week. Vampire the Masquerade: We Eat Blood and Mage the Ascension: Refuge won’t scratch that Bloodlines itch, but as interactive fiction goes they’re very cool.
After years of saying they’d do it, Valve is finally getting rid of Steam Greenlight, Steam’s user-driven service for admitting smaller games to the Steam store. They’re replacing it with something called Steam Direct.
Nothing tests your resolve to identify a certain way like a big, bank-breaking purchase. In December, after five years of back-and-forth, I took the dive and bought a gaming PC. Until I was standing in the Micro Center checkout aisle with a big, stately “PowerSpec” box in my cart, I kicked and screamed the whole way…
Winter. The season where we cut open tauntauns in order to keep warm. And where we bundle up with a blanket, some cocoa, and games. Here’s a list of the numerous games coming out during these snowy times.
Before you step completely naked (server settings willing) onto the hot sands of Conan Exiles’ barbaric wasteland, there are a few adjustments to be made. Here’s a not safe for work trip through the game’s NSFW character creation, dick sliders and all.
I’ve been sneaking and shooting my way through Resident Evil 7 for the last day and loving it. It’s a big breath of fresh air that’s pretty damn terrifying. Here are some early thoughts on what works and what doesn’t.
PC gamers have got a pretty great thing going. Interesting, experimental indie games? Yup. Complex strategy simulations? Totally. The shiniest, prettiest versions of big-budget console games? They get a lot of those, too.
While playing Astroneer, I kept messaging my colleagues about cool ways it had killed me. It was a morbid thing to be excited about. But a satisfying death is the hallmark of a good survival game, and, even in its early stages, Astroneer has a lot of them.
Years of neglect are eroding gaming history. Cartridges rot in garages, companies horde demos that they will never release, and obscure titles fade into the ether. Some games may even be lost forever.
You just got a new PC game! Hoo buddy, you are excited. You’ve been looking forward to this one for years. You load it up and… oh, hell.
Dishonored 2 is a depressing slog of bodies and misery. It is confusing and jumbled, full of half formed ideas, and ready to break at the slightest touch. But, in spite of itself, it works.
I spent all of yesterday creeping through the shadows and stabbing people in the back in Dishonored 2. It’s a damn fine stealth game. Here are some early thoughts on what works and what doesn’t.
