Have You Played… Anatomy?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Anatomy [official site] is one of the most memorable horror games I've ever played. It took me days before I could shake off the unease it gently placed on my soul. So much horror is about manipulating our fears, but Anatomy is the…

Have You Played… Rocket League?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. I think by this point we're all aware of the apocalyptic hellscape simulator as Rocket League [official site] — y'know, the one where the fates of nations are decided by which ones can drive RC cars the best? Rocket League is really, really…

Have You Played… Mount and Blade: Warband — Napoleonic Wars?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. There's some eras of warfare that seem impossible to recreate in a first-person shooter, and the idea of standing in rows and exchanging volleys with another group of gents also standing in rows seems like one of them. Yet, Napoleonic Wars [Steam page]…

Feature: Better With Age.

Have You Played… Runescape?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Runescape [official site] is a bizarre thing because it's one of the few MMORPGs that seems to be improving with age. Where most slowly fade and die out, Runescape is only growing prettier and more intricate. Oh yeah, then there's that bit about…

Have You Played… One Finger Death Punch?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. It's ludicrous to me how good One Finger Death Punch [Steam page] is. It's a stick-man fighting game that harkens back to my wasted youth spent on tasteless websites like stickdeath.com, but it's also one of the sleekest rhythm games I've ever played.…

Redwall-ish Ghost Of A Tale Squeaks Into Early Access

The Redwall series by Brian Jacques were some of my favorite novels growing up, so I'm absolutely giddy to try out Ghost of a Tale [official site], an action-RPG where you play a minstrel mouse. It launched into a few days back. With light elements of stealth, Ghost of a Tale lets you explore a medieval keep while you complete quests and interact with its…

Six Years Later, Developers Fix Munch’s Oddysee Port

You know that saying better late than never? It's an odd one, especially when you've kinda forgotten about a thing and then suddenly one day the developers are like, "Oh, remember that port of that game we released six years ago that wasn't so good? Yeah, we're fixing that now." That's exactly what's happening with Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee [official site] The farty platformer kinda stank…

Free DLC Coming To Total War: Warhammer This Week

Tomorrow Total War: Warhammer [official site] will be getting a new expansion that lets you answer the Call of the Beastmen to try and conquer your neighboring kingdoms. But the good news is that, along with a smattering of other freebies, you won't need to purchase the expansion in order to fight against them as AI opponents.

Rainbow Six Siege Expansion Aims To Squash Cheaters

On August 2nd, Rainbow Six Siege [official site] will introduce its next expansion DLC, Skull Rain, which introduces the usual two operators and a map. All that's great, but what's potentially better is a new anti-cheat system which will hopefully put 'cuffs on the perps ruining this lovely game with their cheating ways.

Overwatch’s Ana Can Stun You So Hard You Quit Playing

Overwatch's [official site] newest hero Ana has only been out for about a week, but players have already discovered a way to use her abilities in what is the most creative form of in-game trolling I have yet to see in Overwatch. A video posted to the Overwatch subreddit details the process, in which three characters play Ana and use their sleep darts to keep…

Halo Wars 2 Dev Diary Explores Threatening New Villain

I've always been a big fan of the universe that the Halo games are set in, and with Halo Wars 2 [official site] headed our way in February of next year, I'm keen on gleaning as much information about its story as possible. That's good for me, because Microsoft have released a short video documentary detailing some of the finer points of the story with…

Ghost In The Shell: First Assault Slips Into Open Beta

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - First Assault Online [official site] is a long name. Too long, in fact, so I'm going to call it by the more palatable acronym GITS-SAC-FAO for the rest of this article. Anyway, GITS-SAC-FAO has left paid Early Access and is in free-to-play open beta ahead of a full free-to-play launch this week.

Telltale Adds Multiplayer Voting Mode To Future Games

Playing The Wolf Among Us with my wife was one of my favorite gaming experiences ever, so I'm pretty excited that Telltale has seen the potential and will be adding a new multiplayer mode with upcoming releases, starting with Batman, that will let participants vote during decisions to decide the outcome of the story.

The Turing Test Gets Release Date, Asks Big Questions

It's hard not to watch the latest trailer for The Turing Test [official site] and see all the stark parallels between Portal and The Talos Principle. A science fiction first-person game where a robot sidekick guides you through various chambers full of puzzles with themes of transhumanism? Still, despite those on-the-sleeve inspirations, I can't help but feel drawn in by The Turing Test's atmosphere and…

Fart Bigger In South Park: The Fractured But Whole

South Park: The Fractured But Whole [official site] isn't just content to offer up another round of hilarious role-playing, it will also be improving on the fundamentals of The Stick of Truth—including some pretty epic farts that can tear a hole in the time-space continuum. In a recently released developer diary, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone talk about their lessons learned and…

Press Play Folks Build New Studio, Vehicles In Pioneers

I think there's a fundamental human reason why Lego is so popular. The fact is, we all just really, really like building stuff. From the looks of things, Pioneers [official site] is a game all about building stuff, and like Lego, there's a kind of childlike charm that is drawing me to it. Pioneers is the first game from Lightbulb Games, a new studio founded…

GTA V Players Have Solved A Beastly Mystery

The urban legends surrounding Grand Theft Auto V [official site] and its supposed myriad of secrets are just about as daft as people who actually think Bigfoot exists. But I guess the only people laughing now are 30 "codewalkers" who, against all odds, believed in their conviction and have solved a months-long mystery involving golden peyote, Bigfoot, and a 1985 teen comedy about a werewolf.

Black Ops 3 DLC Includes Dragons Because Why Not?

Yo, you know what would really spice up Black Ops 3's [official site] Zombies mode is some fire-breathing lizards because dammit, this is Call of Duty and they can do whatever they want. Apparently. Alright, I'll admit that as far as DLC goes, having giant swathes of mechanized zombies facing off against dragons in the ruins of Stalingrad does sound pretty cool.

System Shock Remake Kickstarter Is Live, Has A Demo

We've talked about it a lot recently, but the reboot of System Shock [official site] is coming — and it's going to need a bit of help through Kickstarter in order to make it. Developers Night Dive Studios are looking for a tidy $900,000 (about £675,000) in order to make their complete remake of System Shock a (hopefully) terrifying reality, and there's even a nifty…

Game Key Reseller G2A Offers Royalties To Developers

Last week G2A, a sort of eBay but for video games keys, and tinyBuild, the publishers of Speedrunners and others, had a bit of a tussle after tinyBuild accused G2A of facilitating the sale of $450,000 worth of fraudulent game keys. Both sides exchanged demands, and today G2A seems to have pulled back on their stance and is now rolling out a program that will,…
