This week in games: Revolver steering wheels and a game built around RTFM

I was hoping for more news out of Tokyo Game Show this week but apparently it’s not to be. Other than the last-minute delay of The Last Guardian (again) and a mediocre Watch Dogs 2 trailer (below), things have been quiet out of Japan. But hey, Zachtronics is bringing out a spiritual successor to TIS-100, American Truck Simulator is selling ... Read More »

This week in games: Mass Effect Andromeda on display, Deus Ex gets DirectX 12

Here we are, almost a week after Ubisoft sprayed farts into my nose, and I’m still feeling a bit sick. Was it actually farts? Or was it something worse? Maybe tuberculosis, or black plague, or anthrax. Or maybe they ground up the source code for Watch Dogs and shot it straight into my nose. That would certainly explain the feelings ... Read More »

It’s football season! These second-screen apps make NFL games even more fun to watch

According to the NFL, 70 percent of fans use a second screen while watching football.

We’ve rounded up ... Read More »

This week in games: Stranger Things becomes an 80s-style SCUMM, Duke Nukem returns from the grave

I had to take a break last week from wrapping up the week’s gaming news and putting a big floppy bow on it, thanks to a 103-degree fever (40 degrees for you not-Americans). But now I’m back! I’d say “Better Than Ever,” but I’d be lying. Anyway, this week we’ve got a Stranger Things adventure game, some sort of Duke ... Read More »

This week in games: Master of Orion, Endless Space 2, and Witcher 3 GOTY edition

Word is that No Man’s Sky is may be a disappointment, so I guess it’s time for everyone to transfer their unrealistic expectations and hype to some other game. Will you find that game in this news round-up? Maybe. This week, The Witcher 3 gets its Game of the Year edition, Rocket League puts on cartoon boxing gloves, BioShock gets ... Read More »

This week in games: Batman bows to Twitch, Hideo Kojima shows off space whales

Word this week is that anyone who bought a GeForce GTX 970 is entitled to $30 from Nvidia. That puts you one-tenth of the way towards buying a GTX 1070. Class action lawsuits are just the best, right? Oh right, we’re here for video games. Well, this week Hideo Kojima shows off space whales, Darksiders is getting remastered, and a ... Read More »

This week in games: Free PC games, free PC games, and more free PC games

Traditionally summer is a time for delving into the backlog, but this year game makers seem determined to add more games to the pile, courtesy of a heaping helping of freebies. In the “sort-of free” pile goes the new Need for Speed. EA’s letting you access a demothrough Origin, and the word demo is extremely generous here: It consists of ... Read More »

The finished product looks exactly as those leaked renders depicted it, complete with a “custom colorway pattern” that includes the five official colors of the Olympic Rings. As you can see, most of the phone is black, but there ... Read More »

This week in games: BioShock remastered, Machine Surprise rebooted, and more

Last week, it felt like July. This week, it certainly is July. Is it the maximum dull information length of thecomplete year? I don’t recognise. You inform me. This week we’ve were given: BioShock remastered, Machine Surprise rebooted, and Layers of Fear gettingsome…shocking…DLC. K, that Closing one’s a bit of a stretch.
