How William Gibson’s lost Alien 3 script became 2019’s strongest audio drama

Audible Studios’ new audio drama Alien III by William Gibson offers one of those alternate paths for the Alien series. Close your eyes, and it’s like slipping into an alternate universe in which this is the third Alien film, rather than the one we know. And as much as the Alien films depend on their striking imagery, Maggs’ audio drama works effectively on its own terms. That question has long shadowed Alien 3, and Alien III by William Gibson doesn’t really answer it. Still, Alien III is ultimat

The Sims 4’s Island Living expansion is an oasis of escapism

The newest expansion, Island Living, is different, focusing less on a mechanic, and more on the feel of a specific place. Island Living drops players into Sulani, the first Sims 4 world built with the game’s new terrain tools in mind. Much like the previous urban-based expansion City Living, Island Living is centered around executing a core concept in as many ways as possible. The Sims is at its best when the mundane and the wild are married together, and Island Living excels at this. All of the

Microsoft Flight Simulator will support ‘community content’

Microsoft Flight Simulator was one of the best things to come out of E3—and the prospect of soaring over realistic cities and snowy mountains just got even more appetizing. The game will support "third-party content development and community content creation", the development team confirmed in a blog post this week, and no doubt modders are already licking their lips. Microsoft didn't specify exactly how it would support community content, but my guess is that we'll see something akin to the Min

Bungie delays Destiny 2 shotgun nerf to reduce workload on dev team

Destiny 2's Lord of Wolves burst-fire shotgun is overpowered. In PvP, that means repeatedly dying to the weapon, which can shut down super abilities in an instant. Bungie intend to nerf the gun, but not immediately, according to creative director Luke Smith, who says a quick fix would put too much strain on the dev team. "To ask a team to do that back-to-back, full disclosure, is not a thing we want to do. In a later blog post, Smith said the weapon was particularly broken in PvP games on PC.

StarCraft: Remastered is getting a cartoon reskin

A few years ago a StarCraft 2 mod gave one of its maps the cartoon stylings of CarBot Animations, whose YouTube series StarCrafts has been turning the classic RTS into something much more adorable since 2012. Now they're doing something similar for StarCraft: Remastered, only this time it won't be tucked away in Arcade Mode. It's a reskin for the entire game, with even the cutscene talking heads turned cute and cartoonish. This visual overhaul was created with help from Blizzard and has taken ov
