Sea Of Thieves gets a microtransaction store

Microtransactions have now come to Sea of Thieves as part of it's September update, introducing parakeets that'll set you back just under 500 Ancient Coin - that's digital piratespeak for about five quid, or alternatively however long it takes you to grind the Ancient Skeletons who drop the currency. Hey man, just because you're a pirate doesn't mean you can't partake in that crazy work-a-day…

GOG Galaxy gets a big ol’ client update for finding any game in existance

For the last couple months, GOG has been gathering feedback on the GOG Galaxy mega-games-launcher from its crew of closed beta testers. Today they've opened the gates and let out what they've been working on, the monolithic-sounding GOG Galaxy 2.0 Atlas Update. The update includes a whole lot of organizational possibilities, a Marie Kondo feverdream of clean, tidy sorting options and search tags.  GOG, it…

Remnant: From The Ashes gets a free Adventure Mode

It was just a few weeks back that the devs behind Darksiders III pushed their latest RPG out into the world, a shooty-uppy fantasy universe where magicdudes and RPGremlins have hurtled to Earth and begun trashing the place. Still covered in that talcum-fresh new baby smell, Remnant: From The Ashes has gotten a free update which lets you re-roll its dynamically-generated biome worlds. That means…

Klei’s Hot Lava turns the living room into a deathzone next week

After a year in open beta, Klei Entertainment's the-floor-is-on-fire first-person platformer Hot Lava is getting its official release on Steam. Starting next week, you'll get your chance to relive those salad days of childhood when life's biggest worry was whether or not you could make the nine-foot horizontal leap to your grandma's 1970s chesterfield without touching the ground. Ah, simpler times. These days any time…

After being delayed, Rune 2 finally has its release date

It's been a heck of a ride for Rune 2 this past year. So far the game has been renamed, moved over to the Epic Games Store, and delayed from its original summertime release date. Ah, but today is a new day, friends. Human Head Studios, the game developer I keep having to remind myself isn't a bit from Community, has announced its Hot Viking…

Get your first look at team-based combat in Resident Evil spin-off Project Resistance

Kicking off Tokyo Game Show this week, Capcom released a nearly-three-minute gameplay video for its asymmetrical team-based Resident Evil spin-off Project Resistance. And it turns out it's essentially an escape room challenge gone awry.  Mind you, I've never personally done an escape room challenge but I'm pretty sure laying bear traps on the floor is frowned upon by the better business bureau.

Steam’s new update will make your game recommendations more diverse

Steam has just gotten a meaty new update which is introducing some major changes to its mysterious discovery algorithm, along with a few bug fixes. The idea is to make game recommendations about more than simply what's popular, tweaking the Recommendation Feed, "More Like This" tag, and the "Recommended for You" sections of the store to allow for a little more precision and a lot…

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics is all about strategic nostalgia in gameplay trailer

Lately I find myself listening to a lot of the same music I listened to growing up in the early 90s. I don't know if it has to do with getting older - I'm turning 32 next week so naturally I'm growing more aware of my inevitable and impending death. Sometimes I wonder whether I'm just trying cocoon myself in the gentle safety of 90s…

Trials Rising now has a demo, and a new expansion’s off to the Amazon

I don't read many biographies, but a few years ago I picked up a book called One River by the anthropologist and botanist Wade Davis. One River is a historical account of the exploration of the Amazon river basin and the story of Davis' own experience on the river in search of medicinal, and often hallucinogenic plants. There are odd parallels here to Apocalypse Now.…

Control devs tease an Alan Wake crossover expansion

There's already been a lot of talk about the relationship between Remedy Games' Control and Alan Wake. Control is a game where alternate dimensions have begun creeping into our own, and among the many Easter Eggs that this narrative device allows for are a couple intriguing callbacks to our Alan. These come in the form of Altered World Events, or AWEs - those damned leaky…

The Sims 4: Realm Of Magic is out now on PC

A few months ago I put The Sims 4 back into my gaming rotation in anticipation for the new Realm Of Magic DLC. If you follow my Twitter account at all you might have noticed my predaliction for making Sims based off of 90s sitcom stars, then forcing them down a lucretive career path of non-stop professional gaming. Many die in the process. Jerry Seinfeld…

Alice isn't convinced by my methods…

Civilization 6 launches its dystopian battle royale mode Red Death

In the words of 60s rock group The Byrds, to everything there is a season. A time of love, a time of hate. A time to dance, a time to mourn. For game developers, this past year has been one long summer of Battle Royale season. Which I guess sort of puts the song into a different perspective considering it less a season than one…

I Love You, Colonel Sanders! is the KFC dating sim you didn’t know you needed

This crazy dystopian timeline of ours might already be heaving with surreal Subway adverts and ironic Burger King memes, yet I've always felt like something is missing. Today I've learned that perhaps the missing ingredient all along was...love? KFC - that glorious hut of chicken that glistens in my dreams like an oily fried mirage - have decided to get into the gaming business with…

World Of Warcraft’s Stormwind gets remade brick-by-brick in Unreal Engine

In a thousand years, when all the oceans have boiled away, when the continents have re-merged to form a single Pangea, this is how I imagine World Of Warcraft will look. YouTube user Daniel L. has released a mighty fly-over video of the streets of Alliance metropolis Stormwind, fully remade in Unreal Engine 4. It's just over five minutes long, opening over the Valley of…
