Hit Coop Space-Sandbox Astroneer launches out of EA on PC & Xbox One

After two years of cooking in the program, Astroneer is out now with version 1.0 for PC and Xbox One. Early Access games are always a risky business, at not only for developers.

Wargroove uses a little-known Steam feature to great effect

I don't play many turn-based multiplayer games on Steam, which is why it took until Wargroove for me to discover the fantastic feature Steam calls Turn Notifications.

Directors the Russo Brothers have revealed their intention to make the longest MCU movie ever (by some distance) after a positive response from test audiences to the Marvel movie’s bumper runtime.
