Don't-Miss Game Stories

Homefront: The Revolution

Homefront: The Revolution review: A mess of a game with grandiose ambitions

Forget the alt-history Koreans—it's the bugs that are the real problem in Homefront: The Revolution. This revolution should not be televised.

Doom

Doom review: Glorious guns, gibs, and more guns

You’re on Mars. There are demons. The demons need to die. If that's not enough story for you, then too bad.

Doom

Doom PC impressions: A classic returns to glory in this ass-kicking fight through Hell

Two hours in, it's the best shooter since Wolfenstein: The New Order. Sorry I ever doubted you, Doom.

Stellaris

Stellaris review: Etch your stories across the stars in Paradox's latest grand strategy game

Freed from the chains of our world, Paradox creates thousands and takes grand strategy to space.

The Banner Saga 2

The Banner Saga 2 review: More of the same and another cliffhanger

It's not that the second part of a trilogy is always mediocre—but if there's a mediocre part of a trilogy, it's almost always the second part.

origin pc chronos

Origin PC Chronos review: Fast things come in small, loud packages

Origin PC's custom micro-tower crams high-performance hardware into an impressively small amount of space.

Day of the Tentacle

Day of the Tentacle Remastered review: Sludge-o-Matic sucker for love

Day of the Tentacle is on sale again for the first time in over a decade, wrapped in new artwork and music. But does it hold up?

Quantum Break

Quantum Break (PC) review: A time-bending adventure hobbled by technical mishaps

Microsoft's push into PC gaming continues to be hobbled by shoddy PC ports, as driven home by the otherwise excellent Quantum Break.

The Division

Tom Clancy's The Division review: Bow before the Grind

Tom Clancy's The Division is a grind in every sense of the word.

Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear

Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear review: A fitting end to a legendary game, 17 years later

Siege of Dragonspear feels like a long-lost (and polished-up) chapter of the original Baldur's Gate—like it belonged from the start.

The Samsung Studio Experience brings a VR roller coaster to SXSW

Watch a die-hard Apple fan get all shook up by Samsung's Gear VR thrill ride and admittedly cool waterproof Galaxy S7 Edge.

Velocity Micro Raptor Z40 review: It's a lean, clean small-profile gaming machine

Not every gaming machine has have more flashing lights than Las Vegas or be taller than an 8-year-old.

Hitman (2016)

Hitman review impressions: Freedom of choice

It's not quite Blood Money 2—not yet anyway—but Hitman's new episodic killing spree lands closer than we expected.

Need for Speed (2016)

Need for Speed (PC) review: Excellent port, uneven game

This is certainly the best Need for Speed PC port in years, but the game itself isn't that great. Come for the racing, stay for the dumb live-action scenes.

Shardlight

Shardlight review: A pixelated post-apocalypse point-and-click pleasure

Shardlight's post-apocalyptic point-and-click adventure is very grim, very adult, and very-in-need-of-a-new-engine. Much like Wadjet Eye's last game.

Far Cry Primal

Far Cry Primal (PC) review: Fantastic premise, familiar gameplay

Far Cry Primal starts with a fantastic premise but quickly falls into the same traps as its predecessors.
