Why is every big game releasing on February 15?

Far Cry: New Dawn, Metro Exodus, Crackdown 3, and Jump Force all arrive on the same day. Oh, and Anthem, EA's answer to Destiny 2 and the PvE "shared world" shooter, will be available on the 15th too. Technically we're both right, because Anthem wouldn't be a modern, big-publisher game if it didn't have multiple, staggered release dates based on a complicated payment scheme. Fight through story missions and dungeon-style "Strongholds" with up to three other exosuited friends in EA's take on the

Degrees of Separation trailer showcases hot and cold co-op gameplay

Degrees of Separation is a co-op puzzle platformer, written by famed RPG wordsmith Chris Avellone, that follows the adventures of two very different characters named Ember and Rime.

"As Ember and Rime move between different worlds, the barrier between them, they gain various kinds of control over it. So it was definitely a new challenge for him, but I th

Metro Exodus is still just as dank and miserable as I hoped it would be

As far as I can tell, Metro Exodus is a continental post-apocalyptic train adventure, beaten into the shape of a first-person shooter. Related Metro Exodus takes time to truly make sense as an open world gameWhen I jump into Metro Exodus, the entourage has reached as far as the Caucasus. But I loved inhabiting the subterranean hellscapes of the first two Metro games: The setting works because they're among the most atmosphere-rich games that I’ve ever played. So when I heard that Metro Exodus wo

The best Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus cases

The unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S10 is nigh – about a month away, in fact. To begin, we're expecting three phones for Samsung's next flagship: the standard Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10 Plus and the S10 Lite, a lower-priced and lower-specced version. Assuming they're accurate, it shows the S10 Plus will have a 6.4-inch screen, the standard S10 a 6.1-inch, and the S10 Lite a 5.8-inch display. Rumor has it that the Galaxy S10 line will use a hole punch instead of a notch for their front-facing ca

GOG’s 10 year journey to bring old games back to life

It was Good Old Games, a new digital store aimed at selling only old games. This is the story of how Good Old Games began, and how GOG today tracks down classic games and makes them work again, in the words of some of GOG's key players. You won’t make any money out of it.’ Others asked us how we’d make the games work, because they didn’t have masters for them. But not everyone sees the appeal of bringing old games back from limbo.
