Feature: It's the most wonderful time of the year

Priceless Play – 7 December 2019

Year after year, there are many hallmarks which signal the nearing holidays (aside from the shortening daylight hours and the date on the calendar). Snowy romantic comedies on TV. Office cookie swaps. Mulled wine, Christmas markets, my friends' annual Hannukah donut party, and an increasing sense of obligation to return to my parents' house to see family. There aren't many games I'd be quick to…

This is your annual reminder to play Skeal this Christmas

Miseltoe and wine. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Hanging up your stockings on the wall. Children playing, having fun. Giving someone your heart. All these and more are sung about as signs Christmas is coming, yet these ancient tunes miss the greatest modern marker of Christmas: me posting about Skeal, reminding you to play this classic-to-be. Wrap up warm, strap on your skis, and…

Feature: Games to play when feeling low

Priceless Play – 30th November 2019

I have been feeling a bit low lately. It's likely a combination of the season (where did the sun go?), drop in temperature (yes it's 11°C in Los Angeles, and my home is built to get hot air out of it!), and another year coming to an end. 2019 really didn't have too much to offer me and I am psyched to see it go.…

Deathgarden shuffles towards the grave, but not without a celebration

Behaviour Interactive ceased development on the brutal survival shooter, Deathgarden: Bloodharvest Friday after nearly half a year of triage. The makers of Dead By Daylight are punting the idea of a dour funeral, though. Instead, every feature the team have been working on was pushed out the door for players to enjoy. It's Deathgarden: Bloodharvest's wake, and everyone is invited because the game has now…

Feature: 20 free games you can play right now

Priceless Play – 23 November 2019

I am floored by the sheer number of indie games available at the moment. If you look, there's a game about nearly everything under the sun -- multipalyer kissing, packing up an old apartment, baseball lesbians, haunted empty MMO servers, Bitsy poems about the sea, and alien art exhibitions. If you have only ten seconds to spare, five minutes, or two hours, there's a free…

Fortnite trades rifles for rods in this weekend’s Fishing Frenzy

Now here's an esport I can get behind. Fortnite Chapter 2 brought a pretty decent fishing mini-game to Epic's battle royale, and now it's time to prove who's the best at sitting patiently next to a puddle. Pack your sandwiches and put on those waders. Fishing Frenzy is kicking off a high-stakes weekend of baiting and waiting, with some real-life loot up for grabs if…

Warframe builds a battleship in the incoming Rising Tides update

Empyrean will add space battles to third-person slice 'em up Warframe. We've known that for good while now. But where do a rag-tag band of high-concept fashion ninjas get their hands on a massive spaceship anyway? Incoming free update Rising Tides answers that question, preparing for the galactic warfare to come by setting loot-hungry players loose across the solar system in a stellar smash n'…

Bad North is free on the Epic Games Store

The latest free game Epic are footing the bill for to entice people onto their store is Bad North, 2018's real-time tactics game about handfuls of units defending pretty wee islands against Viking invaders. It's nice! It has a roguelikelike edge too, with units carrying over on our trip across the procedurally-generated islands of the archipelago. For free, mate, get in.

Fortnite gets technical, adding DirectX 12 support in this week’s update

This week's Fortnite update is much like any other. A few bug fixes here, some rebalances there, clean the blood off the grass for another night's mass-murder. But one of patch 11.20's least noticeable updates may, in fact, be its most important. Epic Games have added DirectX 12 support to their massive battle royale, laying the groundwork for future graphical and technical flourishes while providing…

A new season brings a clean slate, resetting everyone's ranks and bringing some significant changes to the way climbing the ranks works. More importantly: TFT added three adorable new Legends to its lineup with a banging new music video. Welcome…

Rainbow Six Siege partners with Netflix for a free week of crime

Once stalwart agents of counterterrorism, two of Rainbow Six Siege's elite operators have decided to ditch their day jobs for a week on the other side. From today through Monday the 25th, Hibana and Vigil are joining up with the crew of Netflix's Money Heist for some crimson crime capers in Siege's first crossover outside of loaning characters to other Ubisoft games. There's no need…

CS:GO’s new battle pass adds character, but can’t leave loot boxes behind

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has never been all that interested in world-building. It's an esport: the pro players are the real characters, inhabiting faceless Terrorists and Counter-Terrorists in high stakes matches where every bullet counts. Operation Shattered Web mixes things up, bringing a host of new player skins with CS:GO's first-ever battle pass. Now, you can stride through time-worn battlefields as a gruff n' tough special-force…

Pick up Company Of Heroes 2 free this weekend, keep it forever

Relic used to make some absolute corkers, huh? They've finally found their way back in the spotlight with Age Of Empires VI, but if you were kicking about the RTS space in the 00s, they were akin to gods. Between Homeworld's space opera spectacle and Warhammer 40k: Dawn Of War's grimdark bombast, they somehow found time to make a little series of down-to-earth tactics games…

PSA: Download Strangethink’s procedural wonders while you still can

Hey, you, do you have the procedurally-generated treasures of Strangethink Software safely downloaded and ready to go? No? Then grab them now, because they're great and Strangethink will soon remove the downloads. They previously pulled their older games, leaving only Secret Habitat, Joy Exhibition, Mystery Tapes, and These Monsters left until these too fade. That's one game where you explore art galleries, one where you…

Feature: How I discovered I was living next to a serial killer's graveyard

Google Earth VR turned my neighbourhood into a real-world adventure game

There used to be a time when you could impress your family by loading up Google Maps, finding a childhood memory, and zooming in until it became a sort of pixellated memory lane. Your mum and dad would be amazed, and you would be lauded because you showed them their old shed viewed from a satellite on the same thing they use to look up…

Tiny Islands lets you pen the perfect archipelago

Maps are brilliant. Turning complex landscapes into a flat series of sharp lines and abstract symbols is an art, and I've come to love poring over a good atlas as much as slapping together a fictional world map of my own. David King's free map-maker Tiny Islands is a delightful little toy for penning your own coastline, using simple puzzling to help build a rustic…

Feature: Feeling weird about/with games

Priceless Play – 9 November 2019

I've been thinking a lot about "weird games" lately. When folks call things weird it seems to be a shortcut for saying, "this is different from what I usually experience, and was, therefore, unexpected." Sometimes it is dismissive, sometimes it is contentious, sometimes 'weird' is worn as a badge of honour. In a past life, I considered myself an art historian (this is because I…
