Resident Evil 7: Biohazard footage returns to domesticity

I've been avidly following the development of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard [official site], though I must say it's not been without some trepidation. Resident Evil 6 did so much to destroy the image of Capcom's venerable series I feared it may not be able to make a comeback. Fortunately, the team behind Resident Evil 7: Biohazard seems to realize that the only way to go…

Factorio plays Darude in this ridiculous video player build

I've had a go at Factorio [official site], and even managed to automate resource mining and production. I thought I had a good grip on the game until I saw what DaveMcW was able to create. Using just the components available in the base game, he managed to build what is essentially a video stream decoder and display program.

Screeps is an MMO that turns JavaScript into RTS commands

Every once in a while, I encounter a game that just doesn't fit any established genre. Screeps [official site] is a real-time strategy game, and it's an MMO, but not in the vein of any I've ever seen before. You see, unlike StarCraft or Age of Empires, your units in Screeps don't come with an AI or fancy control interface. Instead, you have to code…

Brief Karate Foolish will fulfill your dream of fighting as a half-nude Japanese man

The motto of Brief Karate Foolish [official site] ran through Google Translate is: "First of all, discard reason. Everything is from then!" This free "super real match fighting game," is all about the majesty and grace of brief-wearing Japanese men fighting to the death for a mystical pair of black briefs. That sounds like a typical Friday night for me, only I'd prefer to wear…

Monomi Park's Slime Rancher [official site], that wacky and wiggly slime wrangling game, this week received a significant update in the Slime Science Update, available now. In it you can find numerous slimes and the basics of Slime Science itself.

League of Legends’ next champion has knives for legs

League of Legends [official site] is forever adding new champions to its roster. Much like I add lip balms and perfumes to my dresser because I hoard them, Riot Games creates and adds new characters every so often because they can and people love to purchase skins for them. Hell, I don't even play that often and I'm tempted by Arcade Miss Fortune and Jinx.…

Fridges of the Pacific Northwest showcases real fridges of the Pacific Northwest in space

Fridges of the Pacific Northwest [official site] takes you to a galaxy of fridges. There are enough fridges in this game to comprise a galaxy. How is that even possible? It is.
