Sometimes, it’s the little things in life that bring us the most joy. Other times, it’s big things, like cars, inside of things that should not be able to contain their screaming metal fury, like underground tunnels.
Lunatic Hai is far and away one of the best Overwatch teams in the world right now. Despite (or perhaps, because of) that, they’ve recently become a lightning rod for controversy.

Picture somebody playing a first-person shooter. You probably imagine them sitting stock still, staring ahead with an almost blank expression on their face, one that denotes quiet focus. You might, however, be missing one key detail: their eyes are moving all over the dang place.
Everything is now out on Steam. The game, in which you can take control of anything, from solar systems to subatomic particles, is one of my favorites of the year so far. You can read my review of the PS4 version here.
My name is Nathan Grayson, and I have a problem: I can’t stop dicking around in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
A Case Of Distrust is a stylized detective adventure influenced by games like Phoenix Wright and 80 Days. It’s set in San Francisco, in the year 1924. You’ll play as a woman private investigator who has to navigate mysteries, deception, and the issues of the time. The game isn’t done yet, but you can read more about…
One year ago, popular streamer Jaryd “Summit1g” Lazar dropped the proverbial ball off a cliff when, while subbing on a pro CSGO team, he managed to lose a round he’d basically won by walking into his own molotov. The moment became infamous overnight. Now, though, Summit has redeemed himself. With his face.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds just got its first big monthly update, making the game significantly more playable because frying pans block bullets now and also blah blah important performance improvements or something.
Of all the games with tens of colorful heroes and millions of people playing incessantly, Overwatch is the least overwhelming. Still, it’s not like anything else out there. It’s not a typical shooter, nor a MOBA, nor even a heartwarming point-and-click adventure starring a gorilla in glasses. Here are some tips to…
Over the weekend, we were treated to a UFC event light on pretense and heavy on action. The best fought the best, or at least the best available. Hardly anybody beefed. Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson fought a perfect fight. Refreshing as the event was, however, it felt like an island surrounded by bullshit-strewn…
In the world of video games, healing isn’t a glamorous gig. It’s hard enough to get people to do it when everybody’s on equal footing. And when they’re not? Well, then you’ve got a problem on your gnarled, pock-marked, and thoroughly un-healed hands.
Everything about The Sexy Brutale is great. Well, aside from maybe its name.
Steam has some damn good games. It also has some extremely bad ones. Which ones, though, have the lowest ratings on the whole service?
For quite a while, Brandon “Seagull” Larned has led a dual life. Sometimes, he’s a pro player for NRG Esports. Other times, he’s the most popular Overwatch streamer in the business. One guy with two time-devouring careers. Something had to give.
In Overwatch, you win some and you lose some. Other times, you win some, you lose a lot, and you seriously consider going to Blizzard’s headquarters so you can do that thing where at first you’re yelling but by the end you’re crying, and somebody gives you a hug and says, “there, there.”
Some secrets stay hidden for years. Others stay hidden for a couple weeks, but only because people collectively poured hundreds of hours into solving them.
Every Dark Souls game is actually two games: 1) the game itself and 2) an ongoing competition to beat it with every completely unsuited object known to man, up to and including the kitchen sink. Honestly, though, I think a sink would make for a more intuitive controller than bananas.
Want to make your next protest more effective? Paolo Pedercini and Harry Josephine Giles say games are the key. The two activists are building a list of “Casual Games for Protesters” that they think protesters should incorporate into their demonstrations. These games can serve as icebreakers, teach valuable protest…
