2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

Path of Exile has expanded, with War For The Atlas bringing new content and mechanics to the post-story multiverse, and the Abyss Challenge League adding a (literal) fresh hell to explore.Check out the very extensive patch notes for the update here, or read on for a…

Path of Exile’s Abyss league promises groundbreaking action

Last week, I got to take an early peek at Path of Exile's upcoming War For The Atlas expansion, set to release free for all on December 8th. As impressive as it looks, it is geared heavily towards the more hardcore end of the playerbase: those who have conquered the main story and hunger for more challenge.For the less experienced or dedicated among us, there…

Path of Exile finally has an official (beta) trading hub

Path of Exile is an excellent ARPG built on top of an unusual economy, where every item - even the most throwaway of identification scrolls - has intrinsic value in both usage and trade. There's no gold or even premium currency used in-game at all, and to top it all off, there is no auction house. The only way to exchange gear is direct; player to…

Path of Exile launches expansion The Fall of Oriath today

The free-to-play Path of Exile [official site], Adam's favourite action-RPG, will launch its 'The Fall of Oriath' expansion tonight. This is a big'un, adding Act Five to finish the story and whacking in five more acts based on the regular five to replace the higher difficulty levels. That's a whole lot of monstermashing. The update is due to go live at 9pm so why am…

Path of Exile’s Fall of Oriath expansion hits August 4th

Fine free-to-play action-RPG Path of Exile will launch its next expansion on August 4th, developers Grinding Gear Games announced last night. The expansion, named The Fall of Oriath [official site], will introduce a new act sending players back to the land they were exiled from. Time for some frank conversations with the ruling powers, I'm sure. On top of that, the expansion boshes in remixes…

Clickbait! Path Of Exile: Ascendancy Expansion Today

Free-to-play action-RPG Path of Exile [official site] launches its fourth expansion today, full of new and exciting things to click on in new and exciting ways until they explode into showers of new and exciting belts, jewels, swords etc. The Ascendancy expansion brings new areas full of trials and traps, with new boss battles and, as a reward for besting all this, new character subclasses.

Path Of Exile Teases New Pets, Tortoise OP Speed Demon

An update due Wednesday (19 August) will bring six (6) new flavours of pet to Path of Exile [official site]. They include the fastest tortoise I've ever seen and a well-behaved lemur. Also a pukeko which I didn't know was a real bird until now. I'm mostly posting about this because it let me assess a bunch of digital pets.

Wakey Wakey, Axe & Stakey: Path Of Exile Expansion Out

Diablo III was pretty disappointing when it arrived, but Blizzard were allowed plenty of time to fix it up into its current pleasant state because many clickfans found themselves distracted by Path of Exile [official site] anyway. Grinding Gear Games have continued to improve their free-to-play action-RPG all the while too, of course. Today (this very minute, if all goes to plan) they launch The…

Path of Exile Expansion Launching Next Week

Where fellow action-RPGs Diablo III and Torchlight exulted in bright colors and a brazen use of particle effects, the free-to-play Path of Exile [official site] took a darker turn, wearing its grime like a king's crown. And it did well that way, honestly. Our very own Adam called it a "smart and content-rich RPG." And said smart and content-rich RPG will see its newest expansion,…

Rise And Shine: Path Of Exile’s Expansion The Awakening

Back when our Adam had a good play of free-to-play click 'em up action-RPG Path of Exile [official site], he called it "a smart and content-rich ARPG", saying "It doesn't rewrite the click-for-loot formula but it does tweak just the right parts to make the repetitious hacking and casting a more involved and intricate experience." Sounds good, that. It's soon to get even more things…

POE Face: Path Of Exile – Forsaken Masters

I was one of the first to walk to the Path of Exile but one of the last to submit a complete traveller's guide. Of course, the term 'complete' is meaningless when developers insist on releasing new (free) content for their (free) games. Lonely Planet guide writers don't have this problem - it's not as if a country would suddenly expand its borders to bring…

Die-aspora: Path Of Exile Adds Sacrifice Of The Vaal

Path Of Exile has expandamofied. The enormously successful online aRPG has been out of beta since October, with estimates showing approximately 13 billion people are playing at any one time. (These are my estimates, based on my inability to count.) And now there's more of it. Sacrifice Of The Vaal pours in a ton of new content to satisfy hungry, hungry gamers.

Hey, Path Of Exile Is Kind of Popular

I think that's an accurate assessment of the situation. Since going live earlier this year, the free-to-play indie action RPG has gobbled up roughly 4 million registered users. And while accounts don't translate directly to people clicking on things, Grinding Gear Games say that amounts to just over 250,000 daily users. Blimey! I thought it would do well, but that's an incredibly healthy number for…

Path of Exile Adds New Content, Expansion Coming In March

Path of Exile, aside from being the name of my freelance career thus far, is a free-to-play action-RPG which Adam liked a lot even in its early beta stages. It came out of beta just a few weeks ago, but its developers are already outlining the next four months of post-release patches leading up to the first expansion in March.A video explaining the additions of…

Pure Guild: Path Of Exile Gets Launch Day Mega-Update

After many moons spent slowly but surely grinding in the dank dungeons of development, Path of Exile is finally just about to launch. No more alphas, no more betas, no more gnawing uncertainty. You can just hack and slash 'til your hearts content and monsters' hearts are strewn across the floor. Everybody wins mostly! Better still, developer Grinding Gear has released a teetering demon beast…

Step Up: Path Of Exile Finally Launches

The journey along ARPG Path of Exile's beta has been a slippery one. It hasn't been salted, and no-one was around to prune the thorn bushes at the side. Repeated warnings from the Local Council of Blood and a visit from their emissaries, the feared Health & Safety of Ruin, proved ineffective. A meeting was called, in which the Neighbourhood Representatives of Anger unanimously decided…
