The Whiteness of Skater XL’s Mods Is A Major Bummer


Skater XL, the skateboarding simulator developed by Easy Day Studios, is one of two more recent genre entries that attempts to capture the zeitgeist of EA’s Skate. The game plops you in a myriad of selectable maps, each replete with various obstacles (such as benches and rails) to trick over,...

Warhammer MMO Gets Unreleased Cities Nearly A Decade After It Shut Down


Eight years ago, the MMO Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning shut down. But the fans of Warhammer Online won’t let the game die. A passionate team of fan developers has maintained an emulated version of the game on their own server since 2013. And they just announced they are adding new cities...

Surprising No One, Pathfinder Still Incredibly Confusing In Video Game Form


Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, the recently released character RPG developed by Owlcat Games, seems really neat. I like the writing so far and the character work seems solid. But holy shit, it has possibly the most overwhelming character creator I’ve ever touched. If your game asks me...

The Best Tales Of Arise Character Is This Cat


The Tales series of RPGs has long been known for starring a compelling cast of main characters. In that regard, the latest entry, last week’s Tales of Arise, doesn’t disappoint. All six party members are deeply fleshed-out, fascinating people. And like those of every previous entry, they’re...

Everyone Who Worked On A Game Should Be In The Credits


Deathloop is out, and by all accounts it’s pretty good! It’s a shame, then, that it’s also the reason we’re revisiting the topic of “video games people being weirdly shitty about who makes it into the credits and who doesn’t”.Read more

Wow, This Quake Clone Is Smaller Than A Word Doc


Games today are massive, taking up dozens of gigabytes. Some recent bigger games, like Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, cracked 250GB in total. That’s too big. But a new free mini-shooter out today, Q1K3, is a blast and only needs 13KB of JavaScript. It’s also part of a contest dedicated to devs...

Some Of The Best Rocks In Video Games Are Actually Real


I’ve spent years using free rock assets from the Unity Asset Store and the Unreal Engine Marketplace, but never thought too hard about where those assets came from. I just needed rocks in my games. Vox recently published a video about how game developers create photorealistic rocks, and I...

Epic, Bless Its Heart, Is Trying To Sell An Unreal Demo Fortnite Skin


Behold the Fortnite version of Echo Windwalker! Wait, sorry, Windwalker Echo. You know, the hero from last year’s Unreal Engine 5 demo? The one that was running on a PlayStation 5? Fortnite has been trying to convince me to add Windwalker Echo to my slowly growing collection of game skins since...

Fans Are Pissed About The Switch eShop’s Asset Flip Scourge


It’s no secret that the Nintendo eShop is awash in “shovelware,” low-quality games that seemingly only exist to take up space (and maybe turn a quick buck for the publisher). But over the past year or so, the eShop is facing an even more insidious publishing tactic: the so-called “asset flip.”Read...

Stardew Valley Creator Holding $40,000 Tournament To Separate Wheat From Chaff


Every game gets at least 15 minutes of esport fame. Stardew Valley’s competitive time to shine just happens to be coming five years after it was initially released.

Sonic Amateur Games Expo Features 150+ Free Fan Games


Yesterday, the Sonic Amateur Games Expo started, continuing a 21-year tradition of fans coming together to share new community-developed games, demos, mods, and engines.

RuneScape Composer Jailed For Sexual Assault Of Preteen Girl

Dev Reveals Exploitative Nature of Most Game Contracts


Receiving a publishing deal from an indie publisher can be a turning point for an independent developer. But when one-man team Jakefriend was approached with an offer to invest half a million Canadian dollars into his hand-drawn action-adventure game Scrabdackle, he discovered the contract’s terms...

Battle Royale Players Upset Their Early Kills Were Actually Just Bots


Naraka: Bladepoint, a parkour melee battle royale out today for PC, starts you off in a match against bots. It’s a classic battle royale design choice, one that’s meant to ramp you up to speed, familiarize you with the game’s core mechanics, and maybe even offer a nice if artificial confidence...

I Woke From A Coma Into A Fortnite-Obsessed World


First things first: In March of 2018 I was rushed to the hospital for a life-saving surgery. There were complications. I woke up in mid-April from a medically induced coma. One of the first things I remember anyone saying is, “Does he play Fortnite?”Read more

What You Should Know About Solar Ash, From The Makers Of Hyper Light Drifter


If you played Hyper Light Drifter, you got your ass kicked by Hyper Light Drifter. Heart Machine’s top-down action RPG was a bona fide gauntlet designed to run you through the wringer (a lot) before you acclimated to its resolutely unforgiving peculiarities. So you might be pleased to hear that...
