Northern Springs brings frosty adventure to Fallout 4

Fallout 4 just got a massive new sector for explorin' and craftin' and murderin'. As is the new normal for the industry, this stunning new bit of world and its storyline are all thanks to fan labour. A mod called Northern Springs, which is billed as being larger than any of the game's official expansions, is available now on Nexus Mods. I'd been so obsessed…

Terror terraforming tale Tether placed on indefinite hold

Tether is a game about terraforming Mars. Not for Elon Musk "because I have something to prove" reasons, but because the Earth is dying and the Moon got blown up. You know, it's surprising that Moon doesn't get blown up more. It doesn't do anything except regulate the tides and it's always just up there... taunting us... and we have so many missiles... Shut up,…

Duncan Jones is making a Rogue Trooper movie

Here's a surprisingly fine thing on an otherwise somewhat bleak Sunday: Duncan Jones (director of Moon) is making a Rogue Trooper movie. What's a rogue trooper, you ask? I mean, it's all in the name. He's gone rogue. He's a trooper. He's blue and all of his dead friends live inside of his equipment and he does battle on a ravaged planet called Nu-Earth where…

The Culling 2’s devs now face ‘some admittedly difficult discussions’

Alright. So this kind of thing isn't particularly fun. I love games and I love the people that make games and oh god do I want to make sure that (especially) indie creators get every chance to see their products treated well. No matter how you slice it, there's bad news regarding the newest game from Xaviant Games, and said news probably means there's a…

Silent Hills loses P.T. fan remake, gains a book and Fallout 4 mod

For a game that never released and a Playstation-only demo for said game that now un-exists, there's been a sudden rush of (mostly) good news regarding Silent Hills on PC. No, not for the game itself, because that ship has long since sailed. But if you were enraptured by the spirit of the whole hullabaloo, there's a lot of neat bonus projects suddenly at your…

A single typo wrecked Aliens: Colonial Marines and people are handling it fine

In what feels like The Games Story Of The Year, during the Steam summer sale the much reviled Gearbox title Aliens: Colonial Marines was marked down to a stupidly low three dollars. A modder happened to notice that in the INI file for the game, there is a single typo that is -- get this -- responsible for many of the awful AI choices that…

Earthfall launches its gooey assault on Earthnow

It feels like it's been a hot minute since we had a new Left 4 Deadish-type team-versus-hoard game, and Earthfall has just fallen out of the sky to fill that void. You and some buddies, or AI-controlled bots, can team up together to take down naughty aliens who just don't know their place. Earthfall looks like a great way to spend the upcoming season of...…

Resident Evil 4 fan remaster is almost finished

Capcom were nice enough to release an HD version of Resident Evil 4 back in 2014, but it only really updated the textures of some stuff and not all the stuff, so a team of dedicated fans has spent the last few years picking up the slack. The Resident Evil 4 HD Project has two co-leads who keep updating this personal endeavour, and a near-finished…

The Rose Garden is about roses and probably other, complicated things

Charlotte Madelon is a game designer from the Netherlands who enjoys making immersive art installations and her new game feels like an extension of that, in that I usually have to walk through a very pretty garden to get to an art museum. And this is a game about a very pretty garden. Will there be zombies for the plants to fight? Absolutely not. Do…

In roguelike chess adventure Chogue you hunt the king

I move the pawn on the far right side forward two spaces. That's my go-to starting move. It frees up my castle guy. I know many things about the Chess, including the names of all the pieces. Like Castle and Horsey and Pointyhat. I know things. That's why I know that something has gone wrong when the Kingperson piece on my opponents side of the…

The Eldritch Zookeeper is the Lovecraftian Theme Park you wanted(?)

Do you miss the Theme Park games of old, and how you could torture folks with a lack of public restrooms? Well, imagine that you could do such a thing, but with horrors from beyond the light of our universe, in a godless chasm of The Other from whence order has been long since abandoned? Oh hell yeah, that's the GOOD stuff. Made by indie…

Spiritual successor to the original Star Wars Battlefront gets gameplay vid

Not everyone loves the new version of Star Wars: Battlefront. Some people (and I'm just vaguely referencing the general concept of people, not saying that this is something that I PERSONALLY FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT) some of these people, well, they like the old SWBFs. When the cancelled Free Radical shooter developed Star Wars: Battlefront 3 had footage leaked to the internet, a group of fans…

Gone Vroom is Gone Home but you are a car for some reason

There's not much of a need to add to this news hit. Today, on the ole Itch.io site, I stumbled upon yet another great Ludum Dare 41 entry. If you remember, 41's theme is two game genres that should not be compatible. Jon Remedios took this to one of its most bizarre conclusions: that the walking simulator genre requires a good driving simulator that is…

Joseph DeLappe uses GTA to call attention to gun violence statistics

Joseph DeLappe is no stranger to using games to make big political points, and his newest art project is just as upsetting as its description sounds: using real gun violence data, a self-playing version of GTA V will run for one year (between 4th of Julys) and will visually display the accurate number of homicides involving guns each day. This is all streamed on Twitch…

You can solo run The Division 2 from start to finish

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is not a political game. We've heard this from Ubisoft, who insists that their title about an uprising set in Washington D.C. will avoid being political. No politics... in Washington D.C. and that's final. Sorry, I guess all of my coverage of the game needs to start with me shaking this scaldingly mild take off, like a wet dog covered…

The Forgotten City has me stoked to solve murder-puzzles, again

The Forgotten City, true to the spirit of its theme, is both a game that has yet to be released and is a game that has been available for years. While I've always been one of the few hold-outs that's been annoyingly "meh" about Skyrim, I fired up my copy this week to play through the The Forgotten City, which began as an extensive mod…

Fortnite burger mascot survives interdimensional journey

Uh. Okay. Where to start here? So, last weekend, you might remember that within the world of Fortnite (a video game) a one-time event occurred when a rocket was launched from a secret underground bunker and tore a hole in the sky (of a video game). What does that giant rip in the fabric of space-time mean for the game? No one knows. What we…

Devotion is hard to come by in Detention’s follow-up

By digging into the darkness of Taiwan's past, Red Candle Games' 2017 sleeper indie horror hit Detention managed to push some buttons that I didn't know I had. If you haven't given it a spin, go grab the deluxe edition on Steam, because you're going to want that soundtrack. You know, for when you need terror to inspire you at the gym, or when you…

Netflix’s Castlevania will make a mess of your Halloween plans

If you're like me, a recent playthrough (or two) of Vampyr has left with you a taste for something unholy... a taste for more complicated vampire stories that Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines can't seem to quench. Well, for my children of the night, excellent news has just arrived via a cloud of mist that transitioned into a press release and then back into a…

Dead Island 2 rises from the grave with tower defense tide over

Dead Island 2 is one of my favorite trailers of all time for a game I'd all but given up on seeing. Back in 2014, the studio Yager was developing the then announced title for Deep Silver, and in 2016 the production was moved to Sumo Digital. As a reminder, it is now 2018, so Dead Island 2 and its Santa Monica-ish muder-setting seem like…
