Steam's Most Popular (And Unloved) Games

Nobody ever releases digital sales numbers on PC. Least of all Valve. Still, that hasn’t stopped Ars Technica from rolling up their sleeves and getting the data themselves.


A New RTS That's As Old-School As They Get

It looked too good to be true, but it’s real, and it’s playable: Meridian is now available on Steam (Early Access), and it’s pretty much everything it promised to be.


That's A Perfectly Executed Slam Dunk... In Kerbal Space Program

Performing a Space Jam!-style ultimate dunk with an asteroid is not how you finish Kerbal Space Program, but that’s how it should end.


A Video Game About People Who Pretend To Be Aeroplanes

Here's The Launch Trailer For Hack 'N' Slash

Here’s the launch trailer for Double Fine’s fantasy hacking adventure, Hack ‘n’ Slash. Does it remind you of anything? ‘Cause it really should, at least if you’re old enough. Or you like retro commercials.


Atlus Revives Failed Earthbound-Inspired Kickstarter RPG

Last year, the developers of modern JRPG Citizens of Earth took to Kickstarter to raise $US100,000 for their project. Sadly, it didn’t work out. But now, thanks to Atlus, the game is going to be completed on time after all.
