Outstanding: StarCraft Universe Launches

By Taylor Cocke | PC News | Feb 19, 2013 10:22 AM | 0 Comments

Remember World of StarCraft? How about StarCraft Universe? If you remember one of those, you remember them both, because they’re the same game, just renamed after some legal disputes with Blizzard. Even if you don’t, you may be excited to know that an early version of the “MMO-style RPG” mod for StarCraft 2 is out on Battle.net, as Kotaku reports. Read More »

March of the Eagles Enters the Battlefield

By Taylor Cocke | PC News | Feb 19, 2013 9:58 AM | 0 Comments

Here’s one thing I won’t be doing in March of the Eagles, which launches today: invading Russia. I remember my history classes, and that never ends well. There’s way too many people there, it’s way too cold, and my Napoleonic-era soldiers aren’t anywhere near ready for that sort of fight. I think I’ll go ahead and let them do their own thing while I take the rest of Europe. Read More »

Nvidia’s GTX Titan is Crazy Fast, Costs $1K

By Mike Sharkey | PC News | Feb 19, 2013 7:41 AM | 0 Comments

From case to CPU, my PC ran me roughly $1,200, so it’s safe to say I’m not exactly the target consumer for Nvidia’s new monster of a GPU, the $1,000 GeForce GTX Titan. Still, I can’t help but salivate over the new card Nvidia says it designed for “gaming supercomputers.” Read More »

BlizzCon 2013 Set for November

By Mike Sharkey | PC News | Feb 19, 2013 7:11 AM | 0 Comments

BlizzCon is back. Blizzard unexpectedly canceled its annual show last year to focus on actually making games, much to the chagrin of purple-painted night elves everywhere. The convention hiatus will end in November when Blizzard opens the doors to the Anaheim Convention Center for the seventh BlizzCon. Read More »

Crysis 3 Review

By Matthew Rorie | PC Reviews | Feb 19, 2013 6:00 AM | 0 Comments

Let’s get this clear up front: Crysis 3 is a better first-person shooter than Crysis 2 in almost every way. Gameplay is more robust and varied, the storytelling is more mature, and it’s often visually stunning. Unfortunately, it’s also not very ambitious: it leans heavily on ideas already established by better games, and as such isn’t an especially remarkable experience. Its reach might exceed its grasp in a few key areas, but Crysis 3 is still a largely enjoyable excuse to take a trip to post-apocalyptic New York. Read More »

BioShock Infinite’s Elizabeth Gets Stormy

By Mike Sharkey | PC News | Feb 19, 2013 5:39 AM | 0 Comments

Gamers have learned not to expect much from co-op AI companions. Keep up, don’t block doorways, and throw out the occasional one-liner is about the best we can hope for. Irrational Games will attempt to raise the co-op AI bar with its time-and-space-tearing partner, Elizabeth, in BioShock Infinite, and as the latest trailer demonstrates, she will, at the very least, pack a powerful punch. And by “punch” I mean “tornado controlling super power.” Read More »

Players Demanded These Changes to Far Cry 3

By Taylor Cocke | PC News | Feb 18, 2013 2:10 PM | 0 Comments

One of my biggest problems with Far Cry 3 is the complete disappearance of enemies in areas where I’ve cleared outposts. I really like the sense of constant danger their presence provides. It seems that others feel the same way, as Ubisoft is implementing a patch that will allow us to reset every last one of them, a feature apparently requested heavily by players. Oh, and there’s some other stuff too. Read More »

Blade Symphony Hacking and Slashing onto Steam

By Taylor Cocke | PC News | Feb 18, 2013 1:05 PM | 0 Comments

It’s a good time to be a fan of sword fighting in games. We’ve got Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, War of the Roses, and now Blade Symphony, as spotted by Rock Paper Shotgun. While the former two are first-person “shooters,” Blade Symphony seems to take the Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast route to sword fighting goodness. That means flips, dives, and flying slashes. Soon, all that goodness will be on Steam. Read More »

Save Money: GOG Puts Classics on Sale

By Taylor Cocke | PC News | Feb 18, 2013 11:31 AM | 0 Comments

When I was but a young child, my father tried to make me understand the value of a dollar. I’ll cut out the middle of the story, but the result of the lesson is my ability to wait until games are on sale before I buy them. This week, GOG.com makes that waiting really pay off, because they’re dropping the prices on a ton of classic games like Myst: Masterpiece Edition, The Incredible Machine, and Outcast. Read More »

“Everything Has Been Redone” for DayZ Standalone

By Taylor Cocke | PC News | Feb 18, 2013 10:22 AM | 0 Comments

Look, Dean “Rocket” Hall. We love DayZ. We appreciate the mod, and think it’s pretty great. You really didn’t have to go through all this trouble of making the standalone product so darn awesome. The fact that you’ve been completely remaking the zombie survival shooter from the ground up is completely unnecessary. Oh, you went ahead and did it anyway? Well, you’re just the best. Read More »

Show Your Metal: A New Glimpse of GRID 2

By Katie Williams | PC News | Feb 17, 2013 6:44 PM | 0 Comments

Gosh — the cars in the upcoming GRID 2 are so exquisitely curved and shiny that I kind of want to stick my weathered old Honda Civic in there for “character.” Then again, I’m guessing my humble sedan can’t rev quite like the babies in this new gameplay trailer do. Read More »

Total War: Rome 2’s Next Faction is the Suebi Tribe

By Katie Williams | PC News | Feb 17, 2013 3:57 PM | 0 Comments

I like how this faction-by-faction reveal of Total War: Rome 2 gets a little more barbaric each time. We’ve seen plush feathered headdresses devolve into ankle-tattoos-on-shields and now? People are totally wearing dogs on their heads. Say hello to the Suebi, a tribe so barbaric that they seem a-okay with sauntering into battle shirtless. Read More »

A Curious Indie Game Has Docked at Pirate Bay

By Katie Williams | PC News | Feb 17, 2013 12:27 PM | 0 Comments

Huggable-looking 16-bit critters? Yeah, that’s not what I’d have expected to find on the front page of a certain famed torrent website either. Yes, it’s a videogame promo for Zelda-esque indie adventure Anodyne, but it’s also sort of an interesting remark on the state of videogame piracy. Read More »
