Star Trek Online players held a torchlight vigil for Aron Eisenberg

Deep Space Nine actor Aron Eisenberg passed away this weekend. He played Nog, the put upon nephew of Quark the bartender and the first Ferengi to join Star Fleet. In Star Trek Online, he's made captain. Nog's a wholesome character in a deeply wholesome show, which is partly why I found the in-game vigil players held for Eisenberg so touching.

Steam China will be a curated, separate store for the Chinese market

Steam is in an odd position in China. It’s like a pirate radio station, sitting offshore and letting the gamers access all that unfiltered content. With no official servers and awkward payment methods, the experience that the huge numbers of users have isn’t optimal. So Valve and local partners Perfect World are setting up a version of Steam for China, named Steam Platform. The first…

Remnant: From The Ashes out now from Darksiders devs

Forever revelling in the end of human civilisation, Darksiders III developers Gunfire Games today launched Remnant: From The Ashes. Set in a(nother) world where fantasy gubbins has smashed into our Earth with apocalyptic consequences, it's a third-person shoot-o-RPG of the sort that makes many people squint and halfheartedly suggest Dark Souls as a distant point of comparison even though they know explaining the differences will…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Remnant From The Ashes ends the world in August

Gunfire Games, the makers of Darksiders III, will return once more to the end of the world in August with Remnant: From The Ashes. I suppose surviving the collapse of THQ, as Gunfire founding members did after Vigil Games went down with THQ, could give you a bit of an doomy mindset. This time, we're not gods or avatars of universal forces as much as…

Star Trek Online doubles down on Cadet Tilly in Mirror Of Discovery

Star Trek Online is getting good mileage out of Discovery co-star Mary Wiseman. In their next big update on January 23rd - Mirror Of Discovery - players of the free-to-play MMO will be able to visit the mustache-twirlingly evil mirror universe in several new Discovery era quests. Yes, that means we get to meet Cadet Tilly's comically villainous counterpart, the feared Captain Killy. Yes, really.…

Star Trek Online expands into the Age Of Discovery and overhauls progression

I liked Star Trek: Discovery, and reckon that Mary Wiseman's performance as Sylvia Tilly stole the show so I'm rather chuffed to see that both have been beamed up into Cryptic's free-to-play Star Trek Online. Rolled out yesterday, the Age of Discovery expansion features that slightly gritty Nu-Trek look, a series of new quests to do at the behest of Cadet Tilly (voiced by Wiseman)…

Torchlight Frontiers trailer shows steampunk mechs, exploding goblins and a tiny train

Announced two weeks ago, we're finally getting our first peek at how co-op action RPG Torchlight Frontiers looks in motion. While there's still some big talk about the game being a "shared world" that new developers Echtra Games have yet to explain, the new trailer looks enough like Torchlight 2 to me, which is all I'm looking for in a sequel like this.  Take a peek…

Torchlight Frontiers taking action-RPG to ‘shared world’

Perfect World Entertainment today announced a new game in the action-RPG series Torchlight, nine months after shutting down the studio which created it. But some scraps of Runic Games have survived to make Torchlight Frontiers, as this new one is named, including Runic co-founder Max Schaefer and other unnamed former Torchlight folks at his new studio, Echtra Games. Weird. What a weird situation. Torchlight Frontiers…

Darksiders 3 devs announce co-op shooter Remnant

Gunfire games really like their post-apocalyptic hellscapes, huh? Not content with just developing Darksiders 3, they're diversifying their end-of-the-world portfolio with Remnant: From The Ashes, a third-person co-op "survival-action" shooter. Squads of up to four wander the "dynamically-generated" ruins of civilisation, shooting holes in a horde of invading tree-demons called The Root. Below, a moody and shooty announcement trailer.

Neverwinter goes gothic with a new Ravenloft expansion

Cryptic's free-to-play Dungeons & Dragons-lite MMO Neverwinter is one of those fun-looking games that I've only found the time to sink a couple hours into. As such, I'm a little jealous of the folks playing through some of the game's newer high-level modules, including a jaunt through the Underdark and a recently added jungle filled with undead dinosaurs. This week's module - the fourteenth to be added…

Star Trek Online boldly goes back to Deep Space Nine

Well, there's one way to remind me that I'm getting older: tell me that Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is 25 years old. Despite also being 8 years old, Free-to-play MMO Star Trek Online is still looking pretty good, all things considered. The TV show's anniversary today marks the launch of its first major expansion in some time, delivered as a free update. Victory Is Life brings us back…

A big, big loss: farewell to Gigantic, the moba-shooter from Starcraft’s lead designer

The cosmic ballet continues: just as MOBAs replaced MMOs in the popular consciousness, now battle royale games are flavour of the year, and sadly that, together with general multiplayer market saturation, means casualties. Not even a week ago, Epic's MOBA/shooter hybrid Paragon faced the axe, and now that same is true of Gigantic. Motiga's monstery multiplayer game was another lane-runner/face-shooter combo, and one whose development…

Torchlight studio Runic shut down, Gigantic devs also almost closed

The owners of Torchlight developers Runic Games, the Chinese free-to-play-focused publisher Perfect World Entertainment, confirmed today that it has shut down Runic's Seattle studio. Seeing as that's Runic's only studio, er, that's them basically gone - though their games will live on. This comes barely one month after Runic released Hob. Perfect World have also laid off most the team at Motiga, the studio behind…

Destroy all monsters! Gigantic released

Gigantic, the free-to-play multiplayer brawl-o-shooter where each team has the support of a honking great monster, has left early access and launched in full. It offers class-based 5v5 fisticuffs, and did I mention the big monsters? Matches climax with the two bigguns scrapping, see, each team trying to help their megafriend out. It's a bit MOBA-y, but what isn't nowadays? Here, have a look in…

Gigantic launching in July, escapes Windows 10

Five-on-five third-person brawler Gigantic [official site] will launch in full on 20 July, developers Motiga have announced. We first caught wind of the free-to-play game way back in 2014, and since then it's been chugging along under the watchful eye of James Phinney, the lead designer of both StarCraft and Guild Wars. So far the ongoing open beta has only been available on Windows 10,…

Cryptic are making a Magic: The Gathering MMORPG

Cryptic Studios, the creators of superhero MMORPG City of Heroes, are making a free-to-play "action MMORPG" [official site] based on Wizards of the Coasts' mega-hit collectible card game Magic: The Gathering. Publishers Perfect World Entertainment, who announced the game this week, don't have a name for it yet, they don't have anything to show of it (all the artwork in this post is from cards),…

Left 4 Dead creators Turtle Rock making F2P co-op FPS

Left 4 Dead and Evolve creators Turtle Rock Studios have announced a new co-op first-person shooter. Ish. A bit. They've announced they're making one. The mysterious game will be fantasy-ish and, y'know, you'll shoot enemies with your pals and oh, it'll be free-to-play. While Evolve switched to free-to-play a year after launching but this new game will be designed as F2P from the start, which…

Gigantic! Gigantic! Gigantic! Open beta hits Windows 10

You keep your Pokélads; I want a bigger monsterpal. I've had my eye on Gigantic [official site] for a while, fancying 5v5 third-person action where each team is supported by a honking great monster, and I'll be having a go this weekend thanks to the open beta that's now live. Our monsterdad can beat up your monsterdad.

MOBA Gigantic moves into open beta on 8 December

I was about to just use the lyrics to Gigantic by the Pixies as the intro to this post but then I remembered what they actually are and what they mean so the whole thing got a bit NSFW. Instead, here is the game news: Motiga's 5v5 third-person MOBA, Gigantic [official site], is going into open beta from 8 December on Windows 10 and Xbone.…
