If you haven't played it already, Scythe is an extremely good board game that blends strategy with massive mechs and the 1920's. And now there's a game set in the same universe.
Telltale Games' ongoing creation of its own unique Dark Knight continuity — which began with last year's Batman: The Telltale Series — has been fascinating to play through. The changes made to the people in Bruce Wayne's double life have been surprisingly dramatic and the best one may be yet to come.
If AMD was more of a threat, NVIDIA might be encouraged to rush their next line of GPUs, codenamed Volta, out the door. But in the company's latest earnings call, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang indicated that the Pascal-based GPUs are the best option for gamers over the holidays - meaning we won't see Volta until next year.
Every character in Pyre has a story. Some are about the nature of freedom. Others focus on religion. Others invite you to scrutinize systems that purport to offer justice while privileging a select few. But the story that helped the game find its voice and its heart was the unlikely story of a dog's mustache.
If Overwatch had a single-player story mode, it would be Agents of Mayhem. If a big-name developer devoted the time and energy to do a G.I. Joe game right, it would be Agents of Mayhem. If Crackdown had more personality and jokes about balls, it would be Agents of Mayhem. The Saints Row spin-off is a lot of things, and most of them are awesome.
Hey, remember when Blizzard callously killed the "Battle.net" name, a beloved moniker for its online service in games like StarCraft, Diablo, and Overwatch that dates all the way back to 1996? Well, the blue giant has now decided to un-kill it.
Every nerd loves a good tech war: Windows vs Mac, Apple vs Android, Intel vs AMD. They give us something to armchair argue about over beers with friends — or to rant over in the comments of illustrious tech blogs. After spending the weekend playing with AMD's new Vega 64 and Vega 56 graphics cards, I think I can safely say an old tech war is back on — even if AMD's latest salvo feels paltry. Nvidia might be leading the discrete graphics card industry, but AMD's two newest cards are cheap and fast enough to finally compete. And that can only mean good things for PC users.
Down in the cavernous cellars of Château Guillard, it's just me — playing as Mei — and an enemy Soldier 76. I freeze him, but at the last second he throws down an HP-restoring biotic field, negating much of my hard work. I freeze myself to heal, as well. Then, with our safety nets gone, we dart, dodge, and fire, narrowly missing each others' heads.
There's a long history of Civilization board games, from a 1980 title that kinda inspired the video game series to a number of versions (in 2002 and 2010) that have in turn been based on the video games. We can now add one more to the list, this time based loosely on Civilization VI.
With the release of the recent Atlas Rises updates, people are flocking back to No Man's Sky in the thousands. And while the new additions don't correct all the game's faults, it has been a good reminder that No Man's Sky can be one pretty, pretty game.
