Burbank has been getting better and better times on the game’s lone Donkey Kong race track since the beginning of the year and shows no…

Ubisoft’s Personal Gaming Assistant Is A Great Idea That’s Not Quite There Yet Ubisoft’s Personal Gaming Assistant Is A Great Idea That’s Not Quite There Yet

Ubisoft’s personal gaming assistant, previously only available in Canada, is now out worldwide. Its name is Sam, a nod to Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell fame, although Michael Ironside doesn’t do the voice (sorry, Stephen). Embedded in the Ubisoft Club app, Sam sounds like any other AI that might reside on your phone,…

Switch Monopoly AI Refuses To Lose Switch Monopoly AI Refuses To Lose

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being about to win a video game and then having your opponent disconnect to deny your proper victory. It’s been going on in games for so long that we even have a special name for it: rage quitting. As humans, our emotions can get the better of us, but computers are supposed to…

We Just Got A Good Star Trek: The Next Generation Video Game We Just Got A Good Star Trek: The Next Generation Video Game

Wizard Of Legend Lets You Play As A Magical Jedi Wizard Of Legend Lets You Play As A Magical Jedi

Wizard of Legend is straightforward: go in a room, unleash your awesome spells to kill everything in it, and then collect the spoils before moving onto the next. There’s no armor to upgrade or stats to manage, just a ton of magic-fueled carnage. It’s all very repetitive, but the game’s action feels so satisfying I…

Gwent’s May balance patch is now live.

One Man's Quest To Climb To The Top Of Rust One Man's Quest To Climb To The Top Of Rust

I Love Complaining About Destiny 2 While Playing Destiny 2 I Love Complaining About Destiny 2 While Playing Destiny 2

I love the feeling of getting back into Destiny. No matter how long I’m away, picking it back up again is like slipping my hand into a well-worn baseball glove. After hundreds of hours exploring planets and killing everything in sight, things like the light double-click of the jump button to glide while sprinting as…

I Don't Know How Many Digital Games I Own I Don't Know How Many Digital Games I Own

I collect games like I do books: stacking them on shelves or in boxes, never quite finding the time to finish them but always enjoying simply having them around. Owning physical games provides a sense of history and future possibility and makes me feel like I have some sort of handle on this unwieldy hobby I’ve…

Wild Homebrew Console Looks Straight Out Of Fallout Wild Homebrew Console Looks Straight Out Of Fallout

The Ocelot is one of the most bizarre homemade consoles I’ve ever seen. It looks more like a piece of scientific equipment than something you’d play video games on. In all honesty there’s no reason for it to exist at all, but thanks to its determined builder, console modder Matthew Carr, it does.
