Zynga Needed A New Strategy, And Country Escape Is A Good Start

Zynga hasn’t had the best time lately, with an exodus of executives and an underperforming IPO. But its latest offering for mobiles and tablets, FarmVille 2: Country Escape, show good signs — for both gamers, and Zynga.


TF2's Scout Shows Speed Beats All

Who would’ve thought the Scout was always the best of the classes? In this Source Filmmaker video, the Scout opens up a can of whoopass on everyone — even the rival scout. And all it took to wake him up, Popeye-style, was some hard liquor.


Titanfall Dropped The Ball On Longevity

Titanfall is a damn good game. I’m really happy Respawn was able to emerge through all of its legal challenges and produce a genuine competitor to Call of Duty.

Grab Battlefield 1942 For Free This Month

What’s so good about Good Friday? Here’s what. Turn-based tacticians can grab one of the best indie titles in the last few years for 80% off on Steam this weekend, as Frozen Synapse goes on sale — and for the duration of the weekend, you can play it for free.


Modder Who Fixed The Dark Souls PC Port Analyses Dark Souls 2

For any gamer who got into the Dark Souls: Prepare To Die edition, it was a bittersweet victory. After an online petition convinced From Software to bring the game to PC, fans of the superior platform rejoiced — only to later find out it would be tainted by Games For Windows Live, as well as suffering from a severely stunted resolution and framerate lock. That won’t be the case for Dark Souls 2, out on PC in a week.


Waste Time With This Browser-Based Maths Puzzler

One of the best games from the Cyberpunk Jam last month is online as a browser game, and you can play it now.


Prime World Goes Version 1.0

We hear a lot about games being made available on Early Access nowadays, but not a lot about games actually completing that period. Prime World is yet another MOBA, but with some key tweaks — and the fact that it has tweaks at all is a telling indicator for the genre.
