  • Rockfish Games, the developer of rogue-ish space-’em-up Everspace, announced back in April that the game would break free from the orbit of early access on May 26. One of the bigger changes for Everspace v1.0 is the removal of scanning probes, an action that Rockfish elaborates on in the patch notes. “We watched a lot of streams and videos of people playing EVERSPACE and noticed that crafting/using scanning probes has become too obligatory. On the other hand, not being able to craft scanning pro

    Robot-based Stalker-like The Signal From Tölva is to get a small expansion later this year, developer Big Robot has announced. Free to everyone that owns the game, it will add “a new campaign scenario on the surface of Tölva”, providing “a few more hours of combat and exploration”. There’ll be “unique secrets and new robo-life”—oh and a nice big dusting of snow as well, as you can see in the above wintry screenshot. The announcement post also finds the time to reveal the contents of a new patch,

    The highsAndy Kelly: Wild open spacesAfter watching the trailer for Far Cry 5 and reading our first look , I am officially a bit excited. The outposts in the last few Far Cry games have been some of the most fun I’ve had in a PC shooter. Far Cry has always been a virtual photographer’s dream, and the brief glimpses we’ve had of the new setting so far hint at some pretty glorious scenery waiting to be snapped. A lot of major game series are being shelved or killed off lately, so I’m glad to see F

    The PC port of Vanquish, released yesterday, is rock solid and fun with it: “A great port of an entertainingly subversive cover shooter,” as Phil put it. “If you lock the framerate to 30FPS AR mode will activate after 6-7 seconds of taking enemy fire but if you’re playing at a higher framerate, like 60FPS, it will activate in just 1-2 seconds.” Animated GIFs are easy enough to fake, but a number of people have said in follow-up comments that they’ve had similar experiences with unexpectedly dead

    It would be a federal crime that there’s no Vanquish 2: Slide Harder and no Vanquish 3: With a Vengeance.

    Finding Paradise, the sequel to the 2011 tear-jerker To the Moon, has been delayed. “The other would be that the original projections were based more on To the Moon’s production value, but I’m finding that things with Finding Paradise have been a lot more meticulous. “It felt kind of like training with my hands tied; and now that I could transfer what I learned into a full-fledged game akin to To the Moon, I’m trying to bring the best of both worlds to Finding Paradise,” Gao said.

    A listing for Far Cry 5 that’s popped up on Steam has revealed that it will support two-player co-op action against cult leader Joseph Seed and his siblings, the Heralds. And unlike Far Cry 4, where co-operative play was limited to side quests, Ubisoft said the two-player action in Montana will be available across the entire campaign. And while the promise of “a world that hits back” doesn’t necessarily mean anything, it is intriguing, if only because the bad guys in previous Far Cry games have

    The Overwatch Anniversary Event got underway earlier this week, and sadly, not everyone is happy. The complaints stem from the loot boxes that contain all that sweet anniversary swag—108 pieces in total, which according to Reddit’s calculations (via USGamer) cost more than 56,000 credits to buy. To that end, game director Jeff Kaplan took to the Overwatch forums to acknowledge the problem and invite continued discussions about “rewards, loot boxes, and anniversary cosmetic items.” “I just wanted

    Episode 1 of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series did not make a super-good impression: “A meandering introduction” to a cast we’re already familiar with, we said in our review, and “a poor fit for Telltale’s simple quicktime events and stiff dialogue sequences.” Can the second episode, entitled “Under Pressure,” turn things around? Telltale announced today that June 6 is when we’ll find out. “In ‘Under Pressure,’ the Guardians just can’t seem to outrun the past (or their tab),

    “Oh my god, I’m going to vomit blood,” proclaimed streamer Sean “Day9” Plott nearly 25 minutes into a game of Hearthstone that had already gone to fatigue five minutes ago. The game, which you can watch in its entirety above, is one of the most ridiculous examples of a Hearthstone match I’ve ever seen. It’s a full 30 minutes long, but well worth watching the slow build of absolute RNG clusterfuckery. I don’t want to spoil too much more, because it’s really worth watching to see Plott navigate th

    EA may be taking a break from the Mass Effect series, but it’s not walking away from Mass Effect: Andromeda. The video briefing playing above says nothing about it, but the more detailed breakdown at masseffect.com certainly seems to be hinting at the Quarian arrival. “I strongly recommend sending Apex to investigate this Remnant observatory and hack its systems for more complete data. My analysis accounts for attempted auto-translation by Remnant systems and data fragmentation.” The Mass Effect

  • Now when you put on a Rift headset and walk around, your movements will be captured and duplicated in VR. Oculus has been working on adding room-scale motion tracking for some time now, ever since its Touch motion controllers went on sale last December. Then two weeks ago, Oculus added room-scale motion tracking to its 1.15 update, which at the time was available for public testing. That update is now available as a stable release for all Rift owners, and as such room-scale tracking is now an of

  • Nvidia is giving its GeForce GTX Battlebox certification program another go, and this time system builders are allowed to an AMD processor inside, provided it’s a Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 chip. Systems sporting a Battlebox badge have to meet a set of minimum requirements set forth by Nvidia. Certified Battlebox PCs fall into one of two categories—Essential and Ultimate.

  • The demand for 17.3-inch gaming laptops seems to have cooled a bit in recent years, but if you’re a still a fan of the form factor, there are still plenty of options out there. One of them is the Asus ROG Strix GL702VM-DB74, a relatively powerful 17.3-inch laptop with a GeForce GTX 1060 inside that is currently on sale at Newegg for $1,329.

  • Fallout 4 can be a bit spooky from time to time, and often startling when ghouls come lunging toward you, but it’s not a horror game. You can make it one now, though, using a mod called Pilgrim—Dread the Commonwealth. Pilgrim combines a horror-based ENB with an overhaul of Fallout 4’s weather system, citing as inspiration the 2015 film The Witch, directed by Robert Eggers. In the meantime, the mod transforms your pet pooch into a nightmarish hound with glowing eyes. “The ENB features lens emulat

  • “The timeline was: I quit my job in 2014 and then a month later Geneshift got Greenlit,” Johnson tells me. “A month into travelling I got an email from Steam telling me the game had been Greenlit and that started the wheels in my head. “Up until I got to Peru, the game was strictly multiplayer—it has single player now but before that it didn’t.

  • The goal of the survivors in Friday the 13th: The Game is mainly to escape the camp while Jason pursues—or at least live until the end of the round. But it is possible to kill Jason. The video above, which claims to be the ‘world first’ Jason kill (the devs have said it’s the first video posted, but not the first time it’s happened in testing) shows the kill being performed, but that’s hardly the whole story. Step 4: Female Counselor presses Q in Proximity of Jason. In the meantime, we’ve liked

  • Based on what I’ve played so far, Friday the 13th is great fun. Even though it can be a long wait, there’s always a good show to watch after you die. Before I settle down to really review Friday the 13th next week, I want to know a few more things. Now that Friday the 13th has officially launched, I’ll be checking for patches and fixes before the review goes out. I’m more nervous about screwing up my first game as Jason than I am fleeing from him as another counselor.
    Friday the 13th: The Game is hilarious and brutal fun so far

  • Sometimes you need a laptop so you can have a portable place to do work on, and maybe a little gaming. But sometimes, you need a laptop that’ll replace your desktop. The MSI GT73VR Titan Pro-003 is one such laptop, with great specs and a pretty good display as well. As for the specs, you get an Intel Core i7 6820HK processor at 2.7GHz, 16GB of RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080. The 17.3-inch display is nice, although a little lacking in resolution as it’s only a 1920 x 1080 panel.
