Tom Hatfield played Six Ages, a fantasy clan management sim that's also kind of a text adventure. Andy Kelly played The Fisherman: The Fishing Planet, a fishing sim that I'm sure the ad copy has already said has "depth". What it's also got are other players, sharing the same lakes as everybody chills out and reels in catch after catch.

The “dementor” bug seems to have arrived with the Fortnite Chapter 2 update that came earlier this week. We’re keeping a running list of th

Destiny 2’s new armor system is getting a few important tweaks

Bungie's weekly blog post series—This Week at Bungie—is often dense with information, and this week's This Week is definitely one of those times.
