Mattel’s Hot Wheels Augmoto AR is a frantic and fun new way to race

Growing up, I would drive my favorite die-cast Hot Wheels on some epic imaginary adventures around the house and on the racing track. Now, Mattel is helping kids imagine what they imagine their Hot Wheels races look like, through the help of an augmented reality (AR) racing interface. At this year’s Toy Fair in New York City, I visited Mattel’s showcase, where the company is celebrating Hot Wheels’ 50th anniversary. Plus, it adds some skill and interactivity to Hot Wheels’ non-RC tracks, which t

Vampyr has done what other RPGs couldn’t – it made me feel horrible about murdering innocent people

Vampyr changes all of that with the unique approach they have to these characters, turning them from nameless extras into supporting actors in Dr Reid’s story. Almost every single one can be changed, as Vampyr pushes you towards taking care of the characters milling around the streets with you. Whereas most of us have indulged in the odd quicksave massacre, Vampyr doesn’t give you that kind of scot-free gratification.

A VRChat wedding helped lead the way for good episodic in-game series

In late January, two VRChat streamers, Nuts and Chipz, married each other in front of their closest friends and 8,000 people watching on Twitch. Chipz and Nuts’ special day was one of the most anticipated events in VRChat, with the tale of their wedding spreading quickly through the virtual community. Their wedding was more than a gimmick or declaration of virtual love; it was a reminder that interesting episodic stories are being told in VRChat. He eventually stumbled upon a VRChat player who w

Unusual fighter Way of the Passive Fist coming next month

I saw Way of the Passive Fist at Day of the Devs last year, and came away impressed by its original take on the 2D fighter genre. Players do not have offensive moves, only defensive. It’s up to you to wear down opponents, before knocking them out with a feather-light touch. “This isn’t your typical action arcade brawler since button mashing won’t get you far and it’s all about timing defensive moves,” said Canam. Way of the Passive Fist from Household Games will be available for PlayStation 4 on

The dumbest armour in PC gaming history

We tried to pick the best of the worst from across PC gaming history, assembling an eclectic mix of armor that's hideous, hilarious, and nonsensical. Some 'fantasy' armor from the middle ages is a lot more fantastic than a lot of the armor that's depicted in these games. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines - Pimp my hideHang on, you’re probably thinking. As a grunt on the ground, you probably don’t want to hear that your primary advantage is ‘numbers’, especially when your boss jealously guards

Kingdom Come: Deliverance stole my boots, and I’m on a violent mission to get them back

In my case, just about everything in Kingdom Come: Deliverance has been put on hold until I get my damn boots back. On his feet: boots. This game stole my boots, and I'm determined to steal them back. I know it's risky, but I guess I'm still annoyed at having my first pair of stolen boots stolen from me, and so I have little faith or trust in authority at this point. So, yeah, he's dead now too.

Growing Ooblets, the gorgeous farm battler

The idea for Ooblets came from a desire to play a farming game with more RPG elements. Given that emphasis on self-directed play, I ask what happens if you want to focus on farming or on training ooblets. Could you treat Ooblets entirely as a farming game? Cordingley is optimistic that Ooblets can stand out, and sees the benefit of more attention being paid to that space. “Ooblets has a lot of personality and unique attributes that we think will set it apart in people’s minds.
