Battlefield 1's upcoming DLC In The Name Of The Tsar will open up the Eastern Front with the addition of the Russian Army. In doing so, it will bring an underrepresented group to the battlefield: Women. Who will kick your arse.


The greatest tragedy in my life is that I am allergic to cats. I'd normally supplant my desire for cat ownership by getting one in a video game, but, a cursory look at the mods on Nexus shows me that video game cats in popular games like Skyrim and Fallout 4 aren't quite right. Here are the things Bethesda games get wrong about virtual cats, and the ways highly-endorsed cat mods on Nexus fix those issues.


There's no doubt that having a nice, shiny skin for your gun or player model looks cool, and feels cool. But I'm the kind of person who can never justify spending actual money on those things, and I'm always fascinated by those that do.

Microsoft held a big Surface event in Shanghai overnight. While the event was basically impossible to watch in America, with a broken liveblog and zero English livestreams, savvy viewers (and those fluent in Chinese) might have caught the big news: There's a new Surface Pro. It's been more than sixteen months since Microsoft's landmark tablet-laptop hybrid saw an update.

In the intervening time, Microsoft has seen a lot of competitors attempt to encroach on the 2-1 device space While some of those clones have been aesthetically delightful, few have approached the slick combination of design and quality the Surface Pro delivers. So a refresh is welcomed, and this year's refresh could fix some of the tablet laptop's biggest problems, even if the name is stupid.


Appealing to a new audience is a challenge that faces every developer. But when you have to draw new players into a crowd that has been playing the same game for over 15 years, the tightrope gets increasingly wobbly.

But how do you refresh an established formula without aggravating one of the most dedicated communities in all of gaming, a community that believes Quake is the undisputed best multiplayer game ever made?


Glitched out texts, lush water colours and abandoned towns: Yurei Station, a visual novel that came out a few weeks ago on itch.io, uses these elements to create a horror game that lingers with you long after you're done with it.


In Battlegrounds, players engage in a battle royale where they must scavenge weapons and gear, sneaking around to kill each other until only one of them is left standing. A new community-created game mode, popular with streamers, pits one squad against countless ravenous zombies for that turns the tactical shooter into a full- blown horror game.
