Figment is a beautiful isometric puzzler ‘set in the recesses of the human mind’

Billed as a "musical action-adventure set in the recesses of the human mind", Figment is the latest game from Bedtime Digital Games—a gorgeous hand-drawn isometric puzzle game with combat elements. Assuming control of Dusty—"the mind's former voice of courage"—it's your job to face your fears, do battle with nightmares as you explore fragments of the mind, and help restore the courage the mind has lost. Each scene unfolds against a score of animated music, each variation of which is said to be "

Will League of Legends ever conquer its support problem?

There’s just one problem: nobody wants to play support. Unfortunately, this is League of Legends, and nobody wants to play support. League of Legends offers a multitudes of ways to engage in the game, and no one wants to play support in any of them. In order to talk about the fact that nobody wants to play support, we’re going to have to ask ourselves why no one wants to play support. Autofill is one of those experiments: will people happily play support once in awhile if it means faster queues

Attentat 1942 is a ‘historically accurate’ game about the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia

Attentat 1942 is not your typical Second World War videogame. It's a "historically accurate adventure" about the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakian territory in 1942, told from the perspective of the survivors. "The game is built on personal memories, interactive comics, and authentic footage," the Steam Greenlight page says. "You will speak to eyewitnesses, live their memories, and discover the untold story of your family." Attentat 1942 is expected to be ready for release in the third quarter

Starved for the sport on PC, Old Time Hockey is a bit of a letdown

We haven't had an NHL game from EA since 2008, and we haven't seen many alternatives since. However, now that I've spent a good chunk of time with it, Old Time Hockey isn't the exhilarating, arcade sports game that it initially looked like. In your hands, Old Time is stuck somewhere between NHL 94's d-pad scheme and the modern NHL games' skill stick. I'd love to see a developer create a deep, engaging fighting system for a hockey game, but this sadly is not that. Old Time Hockey isn't the game P

Final Fantasy 14’s latest update removes the two-week trial time limit

Today's release of the latest patch to the Square Enix MMO Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, taking it to version 3.56, means players can now "experience the conclusion of the Heavensward main scenario."

Now you can play the free trial without a time limit! The full patch notes are available here, and you can d

MLG to experiment with banning Peacekeeper in For Honor tournaments

Ubisoft's medieval beatdown game For Honor has a Peacekeeper problem. However, when PK [Peacekeeper] is used these tactics are not needed as simply spamming light attacks can usually guarantee hits, even against experienced players," he wrote. The purpose of the message was to call for a ban on the use of the Peacekeeper class in MLG tournaments, and MLG, reflecting the seriousness of the complaint, agreed. "For online tournaments, we will try running a tournament with peacekeeper banned, and th

Buy a GTX 1060 and get For Honor or Ghost Recon Wildlands for free

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1060 price-to-performance ratio is reason enough to consider the card, but if you're looking for added incentive to upgrade, you can now score a free copy of For Honor or Ghost Recon Wildlands. Initially the free game offer applied to qualified purchases of a GeForce GTX 1070 or 1080 card, desktop system, or laptop. It later expanded to included the GTX 1080 Ti after it launched, and now the GTX 1060 is joining the party. "The GeForce GTX 1060 is the ‘Recommended’ GPU for bo

The Sim Settlements mod for Fallout 4 is so good it should be an official part of the game

I've been having a go at a mod called Sim Settlements, created by kinggath, (which I previously wrote about here). But with Sim Settlements, NPCs gradually improve their homes. This is why the mod should become an official part of the game: it makes your settlements feel alive, far more than the original game does. Soon, he'd added a chemistry table inside and would chill out in there most of the day. You can—and definitely should—grab Sim Settlements from Nexus Mods and give it a try.

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire sets sail for frontiers beyond mere tradition

Amid the Skyrims and Witcher 3s of the world, players hungered for a return to the classic roleplaying games of yesteryear. The first game saved Obsidian from drowning, and Pillars of Eternity 2 is ready to sail to a new world. “We had talked about it going all the way back to Pillars of Eternity,” Sawyer confesses almost shamefully. I begin to realise that, to Urquhart and Sawyer, Pillars of Eternity 2 is as much about the little things as it is the big. “I think a lot of people, whether consci

Mass Effect: Andromeda’s aliens are a missed opportunity

In our last conversation about Mass Effect: Andromeda, we had divided opinions about its first few hours. I’d read it as a critique of the wonder and optimism that comes with space operas, but this is Mass Effect. There was such a great opportunity to do the ‘aliens land on earth’ story in reverse, with awe-struck aliens reacting to the existence of humans. There was such a great opportunity to do the ‘aliens land on earth’ story in reverse, with awe-struck aliens reacting to the existence of hu
