GTA Online teases Gunrunning update with first look

Gunrunning brings upgrades to the Tampa

Let’s pretend for a moment that the best part of GTA Online [official site] isn’t seeing who can go furthest when leaping off the Hollywood sign and deploying a parachute to scoot to victory before having a little bike race to the foot of a hill. Have I lost you already? Fine. I’ll wait for you to finish the bike race.

Back? Okay. So there’s apparently an update called “Gunrunning” coming. I’m tentatively interested but only because of the running part and not the gun part. Running with guns sounds unsafe. Even more unsafe than running with scissors. Read the rest of this entry »

Darkest Dungeon’s vampy expansion drips to June 19th

Splendidly cruel dungeon crawler Darkest Dungeon [official site] will welcome mosquito-like aristocratic vampires with the launch of its first expansion, The Crimson Court, on June 19th, developers Red Hook Studios have announced. For $10 it’ll add that dastardly strain of bloodsuckers, along with the whole new dungeon type they inhabit, a new hero for you to dust them with, and a fanatical vampire hunter who might murder you if he thinks you’re tainted. I am very much into the fine clothing and horrible proboscis noses of Crimson Court Members, a nice spin on your usual swanky vamps. Read the rest of this entry »

Side-scrolling MOBA Awesomenauts is now free-to-play

After commercial MOBAs exploded, most of the next wave were basically Lolbuts (‘like League of Legends but with…’) but Awesomenauts had an interesting take. It’s an action-platformer built upon the MOBA fundamentals of waves, bases, neutral enemies, and all that, an interesting rejiggling which casts off a lot of the MOBA baggage. If you fancy a crack, hey, it’s now free to play. Have a gander: Read the rest of this entry »

Platinum’s Vanquish rocketslides onto PC

Hold onto your butts! If you don’t, they’ll fall off as you rocketslide around a spacecity kicking robots in Vanquish [official site]. Almost seven years after its console debut, the third-person shooter from Bayonetta and Nier: Automata devs PlatinumGames has finally arrived on PC. It is a good video game. Did I not mention that you can rocketslide and kick robots? Our Alec is bumsliding around to tell us all Wot He Thinks but, for now, here’s notice that it’s out and some brief tech thoughts.
