That awesome-looking mod for GZDoom that combines the best parts of Aliens: The Ultimate Doom with Alien Trilogy? Creator Kontra Kommando has released a beta you can play right now.
The recently revealed "Android O" may not have knocked it out of the park for Google, but there is a nifty feature coming to the upgraded platform that will appeal in particular to mobile gamers — graphic driver updates independent of full OS ones.
City-builder Cities: Skylines has accumulated a healthy number of expansions since its release in 2015 and developer Colossal Order has just added another... duck to the row? Egg to the basket? Basically it's got another one out called Mass Transit that, unsurprisingly, provides players with a bevvy of new transportation options.
Endless Space 2's exit from Early Access is a few days away and to gear up for release, developer Amplitude Studios has been putting out videos to highlight the game's 4X core (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit and eXterminate). Today we're looking at the second of those, showing off the varied ways in which different species can spread their influence.
Slime-San is the type of twitchy, lighting-quick platformer I'm happy to spend hours dying in. Filled with micro levels similar to Super Meat boy, the fourth project from the New York studio Fabraz takes the labyrinths of classic games like Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong Country and condenses them down into a single screen that pulses with obstacles and possibilities.
Since the end of last week, news reports have been circulating about Paul "Ice Poseidon" Denino, a streamer who got swatted while on an aeroplane and subsequently got banned from Twitch. In his eyes, he was booted unjustly, chewed up and spat out by Twitch's new "IRL" section. However, this isn't Denino's first brush with Twitch law, nor swatting, for that matter. Many people watch him because they want to see stuff like that happen. Some even go out of their way to cause it.
Games are complicated pieces of software and sometimes even the most cosmetic of changes can cause bizarre bugs. Take the recent introduction of "Mastery taunts" in Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm. Sounds alright — who doesn't like a new way to give opponents some attitude? Turns out the joke would be on you, with the developer forced to disable the new taunts as they were causing players to desync from matches.
Video game sequels often fix the problems of their predecessors thanks to, among other things, the iterative advancements of technology. That's on top of the fact that making creative work in the gaming medium is still an exercise in being an artistic pioneer. So you at least hope that the people making sequels know what their last game did wrong. This was a week to wonder if the folks making Halo did.
It took a few years, but Nordic's plans for de Blob, created by Melbourne's now-defunct Blue Tongue Entertainment, have finally come to fruition. Snagged back in 2014 during the THQ firesale it was unclear what was to happen to the popular franchise, but now we know — a revamped PC version, which you can pick up now from Steam or GOG.
Over the last few weeks, a YouTube channel has been uploading a Let's Play of a game called Petscop. On the surface, Petscop appears to be a peppy animal collecting game that was never officially released. Hiding underneath that, though, is a dark and bizarre game that references real-life child killings. Nobody can tell if Petscop is real, but it might not matter.
Dwarf Fortress is the insanely complicated and goblin-infested procedurally generated gift that keeps on giving. There are plenty of stories to be found in the world of Zach and Tarn Adams' decade-old, ASCII creation, but none are quite as fascinating as the mystery of the dead cats.
