In the annals of holiday lore it said that, every year, after circling the globe on a carpet-sized copy of Death Stranding, Geoff Keighley touches down for the briefest of moments in December to host The Game Awards. Last year, this led to an announcement that was curious indeed: a...

Total Tank Simulator Sure Looks Familiar

Total Tank Simulator Sure Looks Familiar

Total Tank Simulator is coming on PC for anyone who, like me, misses Battlefield Heroes dearly . And let’s get this out of the way first: it has nothing to do with Totally Accurate Battlefield Simulator.

Despite the name, premise, art style and colour scheme looking a lot like Landfall’s cult hit, this is actually coming from a different developer and publisher, so...yeah, that’s odd.

The Video Game Version Of Paranoia Makes Betraying Your Teammates Fun

The Video Game Version Of Paranoia Makes Betraying Your Teammates Fun

Paranoia is the ultimate backstabbing tabletop role-playing game. Created in 1984 by Greg Costikyan, Dan Gelber, and Eric Goldberg, the game is set in a dystopian future city ruled over by a computer AI and populated by horrible vat-born people all trying to betray one another for their own advancement. Paranoia: Happiness Is Mandatory, out now on the Epic Game Store, translates the...

Table Manners, A Video Game About Very Bad Tinder Dates

Table Manners, A Video Game About Very Bad Tinder Dates

This is Table Manners, a video game in which you sit down across from your date, pour them a glass of wine, thrust fish in their face, spill food all over the table then set everything on fire.

Or at least that’s how I envisage spending most dates in this physics title, which looks a lot like Surgeon Simulator , only with more steak. It’s due out on PC early next year.

Phoenix Point Is MIA On Xbox Game Pass

Phoenix Point Is MIA On Xbox Game Pass

Phoenix Point, the latest strategy game from XCOM creator Julian Gollop, was released last week on the Epic Games Store. It was also supposed to be out on the Microsoft Store and Xbox Game Pass, but it’s not, and Snapshot Games have basically had to admit “we dropped the ball”.

In a statement released on the company’s official forums, A Snapshot staffer writes:

The fact is we dropped the ball....

The Week In Games: Giant Robots!

The Week In Games: Giant Robots!

MechWarrior 5 headlines a week filled with smaller games and ports. I know a lot of folks are pumped for MechWarrior 5 and I hope it’s great!

I never played any of the MechWarrior games, but I did play a lot of MechAssault on Xbox. I also remember watching people playing MechWarrior 4 on G4, which was one of my very first experiences with televised esports. I found a clip of the show on...

In AI Dungeon 2, You Can Do Anything--Even Start A Rock Band Made Of Skeletons

In AI Dungeon 2, You Can Do Anything--Even Start A Rock Band Made Of Skeletons

Plenty of games offer players multiple solutions to problems. Fight or talk. Stick to the beaten path or explore. Stealth or charge in like a conspicuously bullet-resistant idiot. A game that lets you do anything, though? That’s harder to come by.

Released yesterday, AI Dungeon 2 purports to be one such game, and for the most part, I’ve found it to be true. Like its name implies, it’s an...

Halo: Reach, Bungie’s final entry in its second (of three, so far) series about armored space knights, is finally on PC. People are clearly excited, so much so that they managed to propel it to the third most-played slot on Steam earlier this week. But do they actually like the port?...

Sometimes, as borders erode, new fissures form in their wake. In 2019, more games flowed between PC and other platforms than ever before, but a single major division cracked the PC gaming landscape in half.

This year’s central throughline was undoubtedly...

Halo: Reach Launches On PC, Becomes Third Most Played Game On Steam

The remaster of Halo: Reach came out on PC today, marking the series’ return to the platform after 12 long years, and Steam users have given it a Spartan’s welcome, with over 100,000 people playing at the same time making it one of the top five games on Valve’s storefront.

The game’s only been out since 1:00 p.m. ET and already it has more concurrent players than PUBG, Grand Theft Auto V, and...

Phoenix Point Is A Bigger, Messier XCOM

Phoenix Point is a new turn-based tactics game designed by Julian Gollop, the driving force behind the original XCOM, released back in 1994. In 2019, he’s back to build on the experience he helped pioneer all those year ago.

Slight problem, though: he’s not coming in to fix anything that’s broke. XCOM 2 did so much right that, rather than throw everything out and start over, Phoenix Point is...

In a statement sent to Polygon, Campo Santo co-founder Jake Rodkin explains that since the purchase the In the Valley of the Gods team has basically melted away, with many of the developers instead choosing to work...

Destiny 2's Next Season Is All About Osiris, Saint-14 And... Time?

Rough time for our biggest Destiny 2 expert to be on jury duty, folks, but here we are with some unskippable news. Bungie just posted a trailer to hype the Season of Dawn, which will run in Destiny 2 from December 10 through March 9. Whoa, that’s Saint-14! [Googles “Saint-14”...]

Here’s the setup, spinning out of the Season of Undying that’s been running since the October launch of Destiny 2’s...

When it comes to video games, “exploration” is kind of a bullshit word, a sexier way of saying hey you’re gonna be doing a lot of running and stuff. “And stuff,” in this context, can be climbing, walking, riding a horse, swimming, or what have you. All the basic ways you get...

We are gathered here today to bid farewell to the Steam Controller, the little gamepad that could in some cases, but couldn’t in others, because it made people’s hands hurt. Its haptic pads are tickling the fingers of angels now.

Currently, Valve’s maiden foray into the world of...

There are more than 30,000 games on Steam. When Valve removes the odd offender for breaking the rules by, say, being a low-effort meme masquerading as a low-effort game or by being low-effort porn masquerading as a low-effort game, it’s like siphoning a drop from a bucket. Yesterday,...

November is almost over and the month is leaving with a final, quiet week. Not much releasing this month. But for fans of the Five Nights At Freddy’s games, I’ve got good news. The first four games in the popular horror franchise are arriving on Switch this week.

Old World Of Warcraft Glitch Created A Terrifying Instant Death Bear

World of Warcraft contains countless fantastical creatures with otherworldly powers. Legendary dragons, skyscraper-sized fire elementals, several different kinds of boar—the list goes on. One beast from the game’s distant past, however, put them all to shame. I speak of the Death Bear of the Arathi Highlands, though I fear that simply by uttering his name, I may have sealed my own fate.
