There was once a time when you had to cross your fingers and pray if you wanted a refund on Steam. How times have changed.


Star Citizen Got Me Blacklisted From Our Office Internet

Part of the fun of my job is that I legitimately have a business case for installing games on my PC. And on Friday, that’s what I wanted to do: I wanted to play Star Citizen.

But not long after opening the launcher and waiting for the game to patch, everything ground to a halt. Then the internet dropped out. But it wasn’t just a one-time thing — I’d been blacklisted from the company network.


I Was A 30 Year Old D&D Virgin

“What name are you going to go with,” someone asked my partner, as we were running through the process of picking names for our Dungeons & Dragons characters. She thought about it for a second, and then started Googling the names of those Nigerian princes you find in spam emails.

Last week at Gamescom, Konami showed its willingness to take it into unexpected places.

As far as tutorials go, No Man’s Sky has a very minimalist one. It teaches you to survive, but when it comes to thriving, you generally have to figure it out on your own. Here are just a few things that I wish I had known when I started this game.


Apparent PS4 Slim Leaks On Auction Site

Here Are Some Things You Can Do In Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

The newest Deus Ex game, Mankind Divided, comes out this week. It tells the gripping tale of a man with robot arms and his quest to steal alcohol from every apartment in Prague.


Despite Takedown, Pokemon Uranium Creators Say It's 'More Alive Than Ever'

There’s something about playing Pokemon Uranium that feels strangely illicit for a game about collecting cute critters. The developers behind the massive fan project took down the ‘official’ download last weekend to avoid any potential legal action by Nintendo, so the only way for me to play the game was to track down someone else who could send me the file.
