Red Sox pitcher pressured into giving up Fortnite

If you require further proof that Fortnite has taken over the world, may I direct you to Boston Red Sox starting pitcher David Price? What could be causing Price's carpal tunnel? Could it be his career as a pitcher which requires him to slowly destroy his arm with a violent and repetitive pitching motion? Reporters naturally asked Red Sox Manager Alex Cora about it, who didn't believe there was a link between Price's injury and Fortnite, but said he'd discuss it with Price. It appears that discu

Is Bethesda trolling us on Twitter? Or does that rocket mean Starfield is on the way?

Usually when you see a picture of a pink rocket on Twitter, some guy has just accidentally uploaded an inappropriate selfie, but Bethesda's tweet is legitimately exciting. Featuring a rocket splattered with a magenta paint, it's sent fans into speculation overdrive. Earlier today Bethesda posted another image, of London's Big Ben, also smeared in the pink paint, with the hands set to 5:14. Of course it could also be something to do with that Rage leak that happened yesterday , thanks to a Canadi

Days Gone: 5 things you need to know from that surprise reveal

Days Gone's creative director John Garvin also chatted to Game Informer about the world, the bike, and - perhaps most importantly - confirmed that there would be dogs in the final game. Deacon St. John is a good guyGarvin confirms that you'll only play as St. John, and he's one of the good guys. You'll need to keep your bike running smoothly too, because there'll be motorcycle chases, and you'll get points for doing stunts. St John can communicate with homebase when he's out on the bike too, so

Overkill’s The Walking Dead trailer introduces grandfather with a gun

A new cinematic for Overkill's The Walking Dead introduces the game's third survivor, Grant, a kindly grandfather-type with a penchant for storytelling who appears to be on a quest to reconnect with his granddaughter. He's clearly a man with a job to do, and he's going to do it. It's a cinematic trailer and so how (or even if) that translates into gameplay is an open question. Overkill's The Walking Dead is a "four player co-op action FPS" which sounds a lot like the Left 4 Dead games, and it's

This $200 enterprise-grade 960GB M.2 SSD costs less than even SATA drives

There are plenty of SSD options at every price tier—from basic $36 SATA drives to high-end NVMe M.2 cards with blistering-fast speeds. The latter tends to be fairly expensive, but Newegg currently has a 960GB Samsung model for just $199.99. That's over $100 less than the next cheapest 1TB NVMe drive, and it's cheaper than all the 1TB SATA SSDs at Newegg. It features up to 1GB/s sequential read speeds, and up to 820MB/s sequential writes (both 128KB). Random write performance (19k IOPS) is a litt

Sword of the Stars developers launch a board game project

The developers of the cult hit 4x Sword of the Stars, Kerberos Productions, are making a foray into board games, bringing their roguelike SotS spinoff The Pit to the tabletop. Launched today on Kickstarter , The Pit: The Board Game is a cooperative dungeon crawl for 1-4 players. First released in 2015, Sword of the Stars: The Pit was a relatively well-regarded and much-expanded-upon adaptation of the 4x’s campy sci-fi world into a roguelike. The Pit: The Board Game looks like it differs from the

APB Reloaded has a new owner with big plans for the future

We called APB Reloaded one of the best free-to-play MMOs available—in 2013. CEO Matthew Scott acknowledged that APB Reloaded needs a lot of work, but promised regular communication with players as that work progresses. Personally I don’t think Unreal 4 is going to have a big impact on the look or speed of the game. But for APB Reloaded to have long-term viability, transitioning to Unreal 4 is something we need to do." Can APB Reloaded be brought back to some kind of relevance by a new publisher?

Unleashed is a multiplayer tower defense game inspired by a Warcraft 3 mod

The folks at DeSync Studios liked the Line Tower Wars mod in Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne so much that they made a game based on it. That's not all their new tower defense game, Unleashed, has to offer, but for my money it's the most promising bit. For the uninitiated: Warcraft's Line Tower Wars mod turns it into a tower defense game where you build your own paths. As opposed to tower defense classics like Bloons or more recent fare like Sanctum, you don't just place towers on a pre-existing course

Procedurally generated puzzler Subaeria brings its stealth hacking to Steam

Subaeria is a puzzle-platformer built around roguelike elements like permadeath and procedural generation, and it's finally officially out on Steam. I say finally because we first wrote about Subaeria in October 2014 and I say officially because it entered Early Access nearly a year later in September 2015. Suffice it to say, Subaeria's been a long time coming. It's an undersea mix of platforming and puzzle solving that's centrally about fighting indirectly. "Each play-through is procedurally ge
