In Dustnet, You Explore The Ruins Of One Of Video Games' Most Beloved Maps

In Dustnet, You Explore The Ruins Of One Of Video Games' Most Beloved Maps
SteamedSteamed is dedicated to all things in and around Valve’s PC gaming service.  

Even within the internet’s vast digital memory, nothing is guaranteed to last—especially not games. Maybe a company runs out of money and has to cut the cord. Or maybe disinterest turns servers into ghost towns, with not even a pixelated tumbleweed in sight. Dustnet takes the latter idea to its utmost extreme,...

In Night Call, You're A Taxi Driver Who Has To Find A Killer

In Night Call, You're A Taxi Driver Who Has To Find A Killer

There’s a serial killer on the loose in Paris. The taxi that you drive is running low on gas, the police detective in your back seat is strong-arming you into gathering information, and if you don’t make rent, you’re gonna end up on the streets. This is Night Call, a slice-of-life mystery game that mixes noir investigating with a tireless nightly grind to earn enough to make ends meet.

Sea Of Thieves Gets Monthly Updates And The First One Is Pretty...Explosive

Sea Of Thieves Gets Monthly Updates And The First One Is Pretty...Explosive

Sea of Thieves, Rare’s chill pirate hangout game, has been on the upswing lately. After an expansive (and excellent ) Anniversary Update that brought story quests and cooking to its cartoony high seas in May, Sea of Thieves is upping the ante yet again with monthly updates. Log into the game now on Xbox One or PC and you’ll be greeted by the very first one, the Black Powder Stashes.

Dota Underlords' Meta Is In An Awkward Spot

Dota Underlords' Meta Is In An Awkward Spot
SteamedSteamed is dedicated to all things in and around Valve’s PC gaming service.  

Ideally, Dota Underlords, like its auto-battler kin, plays out as a game of slow-build strategy in which you amass an army of heroes based on synergies between them. Maybe that means a chanting brood of surprisingly survivable warlocks. Maybe that means a beefy team of brawny boys who are even beefier together...

Not too long after Islanders , there’s another peaceful, cute-as-hell city-builder on the way, only this times things are on a more planetary scale.

Islanders Is Almost The Perfect City-Building Game

When I first saw Islanders last month, I thought it was going to be very chill, but also barely a…

Cities: Skylines Map Becomes A Poop-Powered Calculator

Cities: Skylines Map Becomes A Poop-Powered Calculator

While it’s impressive seeing games like Minecraft being turned into weird little computers, there’s something about achieving the feat in Cities: Skylines that makes it seem so much more impressive.

Daniel Bali has, with the aid of some wind turbines and water pumps, managed to build a very small, very slow “4-bit adder” machine that is Turing complete.

To do this, he needed to build two types...

Assassin's Creed Odyssey's New Atlantis Expansion Is Jaw-Dropping

Assassin's Creed Odyssey's New Atlantis Expansion Is Jaw-Dropping

I’ve spent 20 minutes playing the new Judgment Of Atlantis add-on to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and already just as much time snapping pictures in photo mode. As a colleague said, Ubisoft’s art directors are just showing off now.

Everywhere I turn, I’m seeing something cool.

There’s this spot...

Okay, Seriously, Maybe VR Gaming Is About To Have Its Big Moment

Okay, Seriously, Maybe VR Gaming Is About To Have Its Big Moment

I keep thinking about a video game I played in Los Angeles a month ago that’s what you’d get if the renowned covert ops Splinter Cell series required your character to always be in a kayak.

The game is called Phantom: Covert Ops, and it’s pretty cool. The catch is that it’s all in VR.

Please, don’t go away. Keep reading! I’ve even got an interview to share with you involving the guy overseeing...

Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

There are many ways to play through Final Fantasy XIV’s Shadowbringers expansion. I am playing as a goggle-wearing Viera Dancer, dancing and damaging my way toward the finish line. I can’t cover all of the job class changes, role-based questlines, and side content before my review drops. But other FFXIV players can...

The Week In Games: Avengers And Everyone Else, Assemble!

The Avengers, their friends and some of their foes are hitting the Switch this week with the release of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. Pick your favorite hero and argue with your friends who is getting stuck playing with the right Joycon.

I really loved that first Ultimate Alliance game. Played a lot of it back in the day on 360. Never really got into the second game as much, for whatever reason....

Valve's Index VR Headset Ships In June, Full Set Costs $1,000

Epic Games Store Will Block Your Account If You Buy Too Many Games Too Quickly

Epic Games Store Will Block Your Account If You Buy Too Many Games Too Quickly

There’s a big sale on right now at the Epic Games Store , a time when many users—conditioned by Steam’s frequently generous discounts on a huge range of titles—go nuts and buy a ton of stuff real quickly. On Valve’s store that’s enough to get you a pile of shame, but on Epic’s it’ll just get your account blocked from making further purchases.

A Big Adventure In A Literal Sandbox

A Big Adventure In A Literal Sandbox

Supraland is a massive game. Cast in the role of the hero of a race of red humanoids in conflict with their blue counterparts, players travel sprawling fantasy landscapes battling enemies, climbing immense towers, and solving incredibly clever puzzles. It’s easy to forget the whole thing takes place in a young boy’s sandbox.

To be fair, it’s a very odd sandbox that German developer Supra...

Not Everything About The Open-World Lego Movie 2 Game Is Awesome

Not Everything About The Open-World <i>Lego Movie 2</i> Game Is Awesome

Anyone who’s played a movie-based Lego video game is familiar with the formula. A film’s tale is retold in a series of story missions, packed with bricks to break and characters to collect. At first, I was disappointed that The Lego Movie 2 Video Game did not follow that formula. But eventually, I came around on it.

Released on February 26 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Switch, The Lego...

Only One LGBTQ Person Allowed Per Team In LoL Tournament [UPDATE]

Only One LGBTQ Person Allowed Per Team In <i>LoL </i>Tournament [UPDATE]

Garena, operator of League of Legends in places like Southeast Asia, Taiwan, and the Philippines, is hosting an all-women eSports competition. Hurrah! There's just one problem: they've put a limit on the number of LGBTQ people allowed per team because they might offer an "unfair advantage."

It's a puzzling policy that could've, admittedly, been mangled a bit by the language barrier. But still,...

<i>Breath Of The Wild</i> First-Person Mod Kicks All Kinds Of Ass

Since time immemorial, Zelda fans have wanted to journey through Breath of the Wild’s gargantuan exploration paradise in first-person. But they’ve especially wanted to do that since the all-too-memorable time of last week, when Nintendo debuted a lackluster Labo VR mode for the timeless adventure . Now they can.

Like other Breath of the Wild upgrades , alterations , and hedgehog-centric fever...

<i>GTA V </i>Sure Has A Lot Of PC Settings (Which Is Nice)

It took its sweet time, but Grand Theft Auto V is now out on PC. And, in terms of PC ports of console games, it appears to have been worth the wait.

I’ve been playing it for a while now and yes, it looks great, and yes, it’s still the same great game, but what’s of most interest to PC gamers is how, well, PC this port is. Especially when it comes to the settings.
