Fallout 76's New Patch Brings Unexpected Changes And More Tedium Fallout 76's New Patch Brings Unexpected Changes And More Tedium

Fallout 76 is not in a good place. There’s pretty much a consensus among fans on this point. Last week, Bethesda pivoted on its messaging, posting an apology to players on the Fallout 76 subreddit for not being very communicative about its plans for updating and fixing the game going forward. After the latest patch w…

Command And Conquer Mobile Game Would Be Great If It Weren't Pay-To-Win Command And Conquer Mobile Game Would Be Great If It Weren't Pay-To-Win

Command and Conquer: Rivals, out yesterday, takes the beloved real-time strategy series into the controversial world of free-to-play mobile games, which tend to be fueled by loot boxes and microtransactions. This game is, too, and it goes to absolutely zero lengths to mask that. Worst of all, the game’s still fun…

Yesterday, professional Dota 2 player Carlo “Kuku” Palad was banned from a major tournament due to making what were seen as racist comments in a match last month. Prior to this move, Dota developer Valve had condemned Palad’s behavior but refused to inject itself directly into the matter, calling instead on teams to…

A Strategy Game That Finally Made Me Take Stealth More Seriously A Strategy Game That Finally Made Me Take Stealth More Seriously

I’m not very good at stealth games. I like the idea of trying to sneak around undetected, but as soon as I get caught all hell breaks loose. In real life I’m happy to be a wallflower, but in games I often want to be at the center of the action, or violently creating it when none exists. Mutant Year Zero successfully…

New Mod Lets You Play Game Boy Advance Games In HD On A TV New Mod Lets You Play Game Boy Advance Games In HD On A TV

The Game Boy Advance had some great games. In addition to portable versions of great console games like Mario Kart: Super Circuit, there were also lots of great original games like Metroid: Fusion and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Unfortunately, none of them have been ported to modern hardware. Thankfully, someone’s…

Modders Are Making Fallout 76 Less Frustrating To Play Modders Are Making Fallout 76 Less Frustrating To Play

Fallout 76’s launch has been plagued with problems. The game is buggy, despite two meaty patches so far, with another on the way tomorrow, and its multiplayer is a far cry from what was described when the game was revealed in June at E3. Fortunately, that hasn’t stopped the modding community from slowing trying to…

A Team Who Has Barely Ever Played Rainbow Six Siege Made It Into The Latest Tournament A Team Who Has Barely Ever Played Rainbow Six Siege Made It Into The Latest Tournament

A group of students in Norway thought it would be funny to sign up to compete in Rainbow Six Siege, a game they’ve barely played, at one of the region’s biggest seasonal esports events, DreamHack Winter 2019. The stunt worked: Due to a shortage of signups for the event, Minigolfgutta (“mini golf boys”) will now be…

Artifact’s Controversial Cards-For-Money System Has Been Good So Far Artifact’s Controversial Cards-For-Money System Has Been Good So Far

I’ve been having a lot of fun playing Valve’s new card game, Artifact, since it launched on Wednesday. It is surprisingly easy to learn and is an interesting take that borrows from Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering while doing something new. The game also treats its digital cards unusually, letting people buy and…

The Vita's Sleep Mode Is Pure Sorcery The Vita's Sleep Mode Is Pure Sorcery

Old Faithful. That’s what I call my Vita, or at least that’s what I would call it if I was the type of person who had nicknames for their video game consoles and, for whatever odd reason, felt compelled to utter them out loud. I’d call it that because no matter how long I go without playing it, the damn thing always…

The Elder Scrolls: Blades has been delayed until “early 2019,” Bethesda announced on the game’s Twitter account today. Revealed at this year’s E3, the city builder role-playing game was originally supposed to launch sometime this fall on Android and iOS.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is finally backwards compatible on Xbox One. The program has been steadily growing every month, but this 2012 fantasy RPG is a particularly nice addition, especially since a remaster doesn’t seem to be in the cards at this point. A little generic perhaps, but charming and fun nonetheless.

I Just Started Playing Artifact And I'm Already Tempted To Spend Money I Just Started Playing Artifact And I'm Already Tempted To Spend Money

Valve finally has a new game out. Can you believe it? A card game based on Dota 2, Artifact launched today on Steam. After having messed around with it for several hours, I can report that there is indeed a ton of stuff going on in Artifact, but that it’s also one of the more approachable card games I’ve played, at…
