Cross Platform MOBA Vainglory Is Coming to Consoles

Vainglory — a neat and surprisingly deep MOBA for mobile phones — is coming to consoles in “late 2019.” It’s also currently available (in alpha form) on PC and Mac. Although those versions are getting a major update early next year with the Vainglory 4.0 update. The patch will include “cross-platform…

Saving a 69 Joke is Bringing Warframe Players Together (Nice)

Warframe, the free-to-play loot shooter about robots killing clones, got a pretty major expansion recently. The Fortuna update added a snowy realm on Venus as a playable open-world zone—similar to the Plains of Eidolon on Earth. But despite being a multiplayer game with millions of users, not everyone gets to hang out together…

The Artifact Tutorial is Kind of Terrible

Dota 2 is an incredibly complicated game among incredibly complicated games. It stands to reason that a trading card game based on the popular MOBA would be just as complex. For my part, though, I wish Valve would have learned from its past mistakes. If you don’t know, Artifact is…

What’s Different About Red Dead Online?

Red Dead Redemption 2 is already one helluva big game. But its multiplayer component, the aptly named Red Dead Online, might be even bigger. It’s full of new activities, upgrades, and characters not found in the main game. And while there is a “story,” Red Dead Online is more about letting loose in the…

Fallout 76 Review: Time to Log Out and Pack Up

I can’t play anymore Fallout 76 — not like this, anyway. I don’t think I’ve “beaten” Bethesda’s multiplayer experiment, but I’m certainly done with it after so many stressful, bug-filled hours. I do not like this game on just about any level. Although I do enjoy it, superficially and fleetingly, from time…

Warframe Garuda Guide: Unlocking Garuda and Farming Toroid

Warframe: Fortuna is the latest free expansion to the massively popular free-to-play shooter. And like many Warframe expansions, it comes with a powerful new playable class: Garuda. The gore-themed machine is a fun new addition to any player’s arsenal. She’s also a huge pain to acquire. So we created this…

It’s currently scheduled for “early summer 2019.” Besides a few juicy details (new classes, a new playable race, etc.) Square Enix also dropped a new cinematic trailer. It’s…

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Impressions – Duck, Duck, Pig?

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a bit of an odd duck. It also stars an odd duck—at least partially. See, the “mutant” part of this XCOM-like tactics game refers to its playable characters. One of whom is a walking, talking duck man. And, whoa nelly, does the game ever…

Hitman 2 Review

The tagline for Hitman 2 is “make the world your weapon.” It’s much better than 2016’s “enter a world of assassination,” which ushered in Hitman, that year’s soft reboot of the murder simulator series. The previous slogan was hilariously overwrought. It also didn’t accurately describe what these games are about.…

Final Fantasy XV DLC Canceled as Game Director Leaves Square Enix

Game companies don’t usually hold events to announce cancellations. But that’s exactly Square Enix, the company behind Final Fantasy, did last night. The publisher has canceled three of its four upcoming Final Fantasy XV expansions. Even more surprising is the resignation of FFXV director Hajime Tabata. The developer is leaving the…

How to Capture in Monster Hunter World – Monster Capture Guide

Monster capture doesn’t have to be hard in Monster Hunter: World. In fact, it’s usually better to take your targets alive. Capturing monsters provides more crafting materials, lets you fight them without tracking them down again, and is just generally easier on your conscience. It’s not the easiest process, though.…

Diablo 3 on Switch Unlocks Its Best Mode from the Start

Diablo 3 on Switch is an absolute delight. I’d actually argue the game plays best on consoles in general (that dodge roll just feels right). But there’s one big bonus for playing the Switch version specifically—and it’s not just being able to play undocked. Although that’s nice, too, and should…

Marvel’s Spider-Man Review

Peter Parker is the heart and soul of Marvel’s Spider-Man. That should seem obvious. The perennially put upon hero only dons a mask to protect those around him. The man beneath the red, black, and blue is still basically human. His motivations certainly are—more-so than other ultra-popular superheroes like Batman and…
