Destiny’s Hard Mode Crota’s End raid has officially been soloed

Destiny has always been the college student with four digits in the bank, a new car, and perfect grades—that is to say, completely delusional.

The Order: 1886 reignites “short game” debate

Controversial developer’s game Paranautical Activity returns to Steam

Paranautical Activity got all the wrong kind of publicity in October when creator Mike Maulbeck went on a Twitter tirade, threatening to kill Valve co-founder Gabe Newell.

Make no mistake, Evolve is hunting your money

With the long-rumored Left 4 Dead 3 apparently idling away in software purgatory, Turtle Rock Studios’ Evolve should by all rights be a godsend. A new-gen co-op romp from the creators of the zombie take on the concept? And one in which a single player from each match will be cast as the final boss? Sounds brilliant. And more »
