How to Counter Every Hero in Overwatch

Overwatch [official site] has been out for just a few weeks and already forum boards and comment sections are exploding with new tactics and complaints about one hero or another. As unbalanced as you might think a hero is, each one has a hard counter that can shut them down with a little finesse and strategy. Yes, even Mei and Bastion can be made useless…

Have You Played…Tera?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Tera [official site] is that television program you turn on after first looking over your shoulder to make sure no one is home. No, I'm not intending that to be any sort of statement on the various states of undress all of its…

MMO Shards Online Brings New Ideas to the Genre

Shards Online [official site] isn't quite an MMORPG, and I think that's great. While it'll still have that familiar structure, Shards focuses on letting players build their own, smaller worlds to exist in instead of giving them one giant one. A new trailer to announce Shards Online's Steam Greenlight campaign shows there's still the basics like combat and questing, but things quickly get much more…

Final Fantasy XIV’s Revenge Of The Horde Update is Live

FOR THE HOR—wait what? Different horde? Well this is awkward... anyway, the new 3.3 update for Final Fantasy XIV [official site] is live today. It's called Revenge of the Horde but has surprisingly little to do with shamanism or the phrase "zug-zug!" Patch day is always a fun day because it means another hearty helping of things to dig into, and Revenge of the Horde…

Space Combat Sim House Of The Dying Sun Out Now

House of the Dying Sun [official site] isn't just an amazing name, it's also a great looking space combat simulator that harkens back to the days of Freespace and TIE Fighter. Oh, and it's out on Steam Early Access today with a lil' discount to make it extra appealing—just in case the idea of revisiting the glory days of zero G dogfighting weren't enough.

Counter Striker: Rocket League Gets CS:GO-esque Loot

As if I wasn't already struggling to not waste away my evenings playing Rocket League [official site], Psyonix continues to update it's cosmetic loot system to become even more like something you'd see out of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. I'm not even kidding, later this month an update will add even more rarities to randomly receive after competing in matches as well as a trade-in system…

Battlefield 1 Devs Talk Weapon Changes

Abandoning modern warfare for the brutality of World War I was a bold move for Battlefield 1 [official site], and now developers DICE have revealed more details on how that change in setting will affect what Battlefield does best: shooting. Along with a small teaser trailer earlier this week, DICE have posted a Q&A with weapon designer Julian Schimeck hinting at some of the more…

Pimp Your Space Ride With Galactic Civilization 3 DLC

Galactic Civilization III [official site] felt to Adam in his review like a good starting point that years of DLC and expansions would ultimately make more interesting. That's already happening: Stardock have released a Builder's Kit DLC that includes new ship parts, a new ship type, and a labelling system so you can name all your fancy designs.

If you're someone who loved the atmospheric point and click adventure Oxenfree [official site], then I have some good news. Last week Oxenfree received a free update that added a new game plus mode full of new story bits and locations to explore. The new content isn't substantial, but if you've been staring at Oxenfree in your Steam library, wondering if you should give it…

Witness The Witness Remade In 8-Bitness

In the great tradition of taking something cool and then reducing it to its most basic elements while simultaneously challenging what made it cool in the first place, someone has made an NES version of The Witness It's a curious thing, because at first glance The Witness is a game about tracing lines through grids so that you can trace different lines through different grids.…

Runescape Marks Anniversary Of 6/6/6 Glitchy Massacre

Ten years ago to this very date, the world of Runescape [official site] was devastated by an event so malicious, so evil, that of course it could have only happened on the six day of the six month of the six year of this millennium. I'm talking about the dreaded Falador Massacre—where thousands of Runescapians lost their lives and their items in the span of…

Feature: Heroic effort

Overwatch review

Overwatch [official site] is like going for an evening of speed dating and realizing everyone you meet is marriage material. I'll stare at the character select screen before each match, unable to decide which hero I want to play because I want to play them all. Do I play as Reaper and try to earn 'Play of the Game' with my deadly shotguns? Do I…

A Naïf In Neverwinter Nights: Exploring Roleplay In An Erotic Fantasy Server

Role-play has always been a curious concept to me despite spending half of my life believing it was little more than adults wearing fake armor and speaking in phony English accents. When I became obsessed with pen and paper RPGs, I forced three of my friends to try Dungeons and Dragons. Our awkward adventure was akin to four naive boys going on a journey, finding…

Could Gambling Kingpins Be Ruining EVE Online?

A year ago the Imperium was seen as an absolute—a kind of immutable law of the universe in EVE Online [official site]. They were the biggest coalition backed by the richest players armed with the most cunning diplomatic team. Around their central alliance, the Goonswarm Federation ('goons'), were staunch allies who would hold the line if anyone dared invade. Their capital in the region of…

Dual Universe Is An Incredibly Ambitious Sandbox MMO

I always felt that the real strength of MMOs was in how they could parallel our own lives, and the folks making Dual Universe [official site] believe the technology is finally capable of making that happen on a grander scale. It's ambitious as hell and years away, but Dual Universe has some interesting talent and technology pushing it forward.

It’s Time to Cut Loots With The Division 1.2 Update

Just when I thought betraying people in the Dark Zone was getting a tad boring, The Division [official site] gets a huge update that includes being able to cut the rope everyone attaches their loot to when extracting it. Oh sure, there's a new Incursion, some pretty cool gear sets, and a bunch of smaller tweaks and fixes. But really, if you're not cutting loot,…

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Launch Trailer Is Pretty Talkative

Mirror's Edge Catalyst [official site] might not be out for another two weeks, but that's not stopping EA from showcasing some cryptic cutscenes in this suave new launch trailer. It's got the standard dramatic swell of music punctuated by all-too-serious clipped together dialogue, but I actually like the way it blends in with the serene ambiance of the first game. You should probably just watch…

Blood and Wine, the upcoming final expansion to The Witcher 3 [official site], is due out May 31 and to get your blood pumping CD Projekt Red released this trailer showing off lots of story and dialogue.
