Observer and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare are free on the Epic Store

Throw-It-At-You Thursday is once again upon us, which means it's time to pop 'round to the Epic Games Store to get our latest fix of free stuff. This week is a two-fer, featuring Bloober Team's cyberpunk horror game Observer, and Remedy's supernatural creepo-thriller Alan Wake's American Nightmare. Observer is an interesting game because it was generally quite well received—the Xbox One edition has an 86 aggregate score on Metacritic—yet we didn't much care for it. Or maybe you're like me, and y

Teardown is a heist sandbox where you can smash everything to pieces

It's a heist sandbox where you have to plan and pull off criminal capers in a world of destructible voxels just waiting to be beaten with hammers, crushed by cars and generally just wrecked. The actual construction system looks pretty basic—just sticking stuff together—but with plenty of room to get creative. There's no correct solution and Gustafsson says that he doesn't have a specific path in mind when designing them. Not unlike Hitman, the sandbox seems to encourage playful, silly experiment

Apple Arcade’s fixer-upper game isn’t short on irony

If a shop isn’t an authorized by Apple, it might not have official parts, either. Apple said in late August that it’ll sell genuine parts to more independent shops, though. This isn’t a puzzle game; it’s a story game, and the mechanics of fixing just enhance that. There’s some irony that a game about fixing stuff is exclusive to Apple Arcade, Apple’s new games subscription service. There’s no obvious critique of Apple in Assemble With Care, but it’s hard to ignore the irony of the game — especia

Fallout 76 perk loadouts and a legendary system are coming in 2020

There are some significant changes coming to post-apocalyptic West Virginia, with the Fallout 76 Wastelanders update promising all sorts of things that will make it more like a Fallout RPG. In addition to the big update, however, the team's also working on some quality of life improvements and new features requested by players. Perk loadouts are coming in early 2020, along with a public test server, hopefully leading to smoother updates in the future. The legendary system, initially planned for

Hideo Kojima unveils an hour of raw Death Stranding gameplay — yep, it’s still weird

There is so much of Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding that we still don’t understand, so much about the systems and the mission that we’re still trying to grasp. But after Hideo Kojima’s hour-long Death Stranding presentation at Tokyo Game Show 2019 — Kojima showed off 50 minutes of raw gameplay — we know a little more about Sam Bridges, played by Norman Reedus, and his life. Death Stranding apparently “encourages moments of tranquility and recuperation,” according to a post on the PlayStation

Heading into The Walking Dead season 10, Carol and Daryl are the only two remaining survivors from the show’s pilot. For those ‘Caryl’ stans and shippers, The Walking Dead showrunner, Angela Kang, has offered a glimpse of what we can expect from the pair this season. There’s funny stuff and then there’s stuff that gets pretty hairy. The Walking Dead returns for its tenth season on October 6 on AMC in the US and October 7 on FOX in the UK.

Get a new DualShock 4 and 2,000 V-Bucks worth of Fortnite stuff for under $45

It's called "Fortnite Jet Black" because it comes with a special bundle of in-game content and V-Bucks for Fortnite , not because Fortnite has its own special, Vantablack-like shade of darkness. The Fortnite content comes in three parts: the Neo Versa Outfit, Neo Phrenzy Back Bling, and 500 V-Bucks to spend on whatever you want in the in-game store. Epic Skins like Neo Versa typically cost 1500 V-Bucks (about $15) by themselves, so this deal gives you at least 2,000 V-Bucks worth of in-game stuf

The Red Dead Redemption PC emulation project has been halted

Work on Red Dead Redemption: Damned Enhancement Project, a fan-made effort to bring RDR to PC by way of the Xenia and RPCS3 emulators, has been halted. "Please note project halted," an update to the Damned Enhancement announcement post says. And will use [the] existing game with tweaked stuff and new textures and some updated models here and there," they wrote.

Stuff, not stories, forms the real heart of The Sims series

I’ve watched enough episodes of Eastenders to know how I should want life among my Sims families to go down. But, let’s be honest, that’s not how I really play The Sims. (Image credit: EA)If you’re using a Sim’s spare time or vacation days for relaxing, you’re doing it wrong. Those hefty bills don’t pay themselves, you know, and lifestyle creep is real. I’m not immune to the fundamental irony at play here, of course—my Sims spend their lives keeping up with the Joneses, except they don’t even kn
