Overcrowd, a metro station management game, moves into Early Access

Overcrowd tasks you with designing, building, staffing and managing a series of underground metro stations, and it's just pulled into Early Access. There are plenty of good games about subway systems but none that tackle actual station management, as far as I know, so I'm intrigued to see how it turns out. Next, you fill your station with staff, setting priorities and break schedules to make sure you're not caught short. In its current Early Access form, Overcrowd contains a five-station procedu

Splatoon 2’s final Splatfest is Chaos versus Order

After two years of ongoing support for Splatoon 2, Nintendo announced that events are coming to an end. You have one more chance to pick between Marina and Pearl in what is being called the biggest Splatfest yet. From July 18 to 21, players will vote between chaos (Pearl) and order (Marina.) As always, the Splatfest will bring with it a lively concert in the Splatoon 2 lobby, and players will duke it out in a new Shifty Station stage. No news on Splatoon 3 yet, but you gotta imagine it’s around

Graveyard Keeper, Party Hard, and The Final Station go cheap in the new Humble Bundle

In the case of the new Humble TinyBuild Bundle, however, I will make an exception. It's really good stuff, and for a buck it's well worth the price of admission on its own. Beat the average and you'll add Hello Neighbor, Streets of Rogue, Cluster Truck, Party Hard, and the Party Hard: High Crimes DLC, or max it out at $13 and tack on Party Hard 2 and Graveyard Keeper, the game that enabled Chris to plumb depths of depravity he previously didn't realize he was capable of. The Humble TinyBuild Bun

Observation review: a horror story through the eyes of AI

Set in the year 2026, Observation’s story plays out on a titular low-orbit space station left stranded in the wake of some mysterious catastrophic systems failure. You are SAM: the Observation’s semi-omniscient operating system, rebooted following the blackout and tasked with assisting Dr. Fisher in the station’s repairs. Which is to say, you’re not aboard the space station. You are the space station. The design of Observation’s UI is successful in immersing me within SAM’s extrasensory field of

Jaguar I-PACE: pushed to Lands End and back again, all with an app

The plan was to take the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE from London, over 300 miles, to Lands End in Cornwall. Can you just hop in and go without a tap-to-pay electric charging station card? In the end we had to call the number on the unit, wait on hold for 10 minutes (hopping) then speak to someone who helpful reset the charging station. In fact, it was amazing how an old building and an ultra modern electric car could look so perfect next to each other. When investing in an electric car, bear in m

I survived Elite’s most gruelling (and boring) rite of passage

They accept a mission in a nearby system to ferry cargo to Hutton Orbital, blissfully unaware of the sheer distance they have to cover to make the delivery. But I don't think that'll be a problem for me, because I'm a Euro Truck Simulator 2 veteran. I've also heard of players running out of fuel and getting stranded in deep space, but I don't think that should be a problem in my Asp. And so I fly to Alpha Centauri, line my ship up with Hutton Orbital, and begin the dreaded journey. Reaching Hutt

Plugable UD-CAM external docking station with Power Delivery review

At $129, the Plugable UD-CAM dock is more expensive than we’d expect, but you’re paying for product that can deliver 85W of power, comes with a VESA mount and has a power button. With that in mind, Plugable sent over its UD-CAM docking station for a quick spin. What separates this dock from the competition is that it is cheaper – $129 at Amazon – and much smaller, while offering power delivery. You will need the 100W PSU in order to get the docking station to work; there’s no “passive” mode yet.

Until March 24 (or while supplies last), just go here, click where it tells you, and they'll hook you up.
