    Just Cause 4: Avalanche's Smartest Approach to Stupidity Yet

    Just Cause 4’s new weather systems began as a single, small idea – adding visible wind currents to the world, allowing perennial hero Rico’s parachute-wingsuit-parachute traversal to become even more useful. But, according to game director Francesco Antolini, once that was added the team then started thinking about how it could be pushed further.

    Sorry Fortnite, but Warframe just might be the best free-to-play game on Switch

    In 2013, developer Digital Extremes released two very different games. One was Star Trek, a licensed adventure game that hit the market in time for Star Trek Into Darkness. The other was Warframe, an original IP -- the company’s first since Dark Sector -- that would end up being the company’s first attempt at a free-to-play game. Neither title set the world on fire at launch, but where Star Trek fans moved on quite quickly from the game, people playing Warframe decided to stick it out. Because this was an all-or-nothing gamble for the 20-year-old company, Digital Extremes stuck it out with them.

    The Games That Australians Can No Longer Buy On Steam

    When Steam announced support for the Australian dollar, it came with the same pre-existing condition as every other currency: if developers didn't set a region specific price for that currency, their games couldn't be sold in those regions. Front-facing support for the AUD went live on Steam this morning. Naturally, quite a few developers forgot.

    To celebrate the release of Battlefield V, Microsoft and Electronic Arts partnered to give a Florida veteran a limited-edition Xbox One X bundle, delivered via an outrageous skydiving stunt.

Pastrana hit a peak speed of 140 mph during the dive, and the jump took less than 55 seconds.

    Fallout 76 player finds immortality bug

    A Fallout 76 player is exploring Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic world, with just one wish: to die. Brogadyn posted a story on Reddit yesterday about how their character has somehow acquired god status. No matter what the character does, she cannot die or be killed. “She can even eat a nuke blast to the face and be fine,” writes Brogadyn. “There is literally zero ways that she can die even if I wanted her to (which I very much do at this point).”

    The Hitman Series is Putting Out Half Games at Full Price

    My affinity for the Hitman series runs deep. From Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, which I poured many hours into on the GameCube as a kid, to one of my favorite video games of all time, Hitman: Blood Money, that I happily played and beat again on Steam last year. For a time, I wondered if the Hitman series would ever return after 2006’s Blood Money.

    The Best Video Games of 2018

    In recent years, members of the alt-right have, in blog posts and in YouTube videos, courted young men who share an interest in video games. (The wooers include Steve Bannon, when he was the executive chairman of Breitbart News, and the former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos, who churned out posts with titles such as “Feminist Bullies Tearing the Video Game Industry Apart.”) This scheme has proved effective. Last month, a YouTube user uploaded a clip from the recent blockbuster video game Red Dead Redemption 2, a cowboy playpen set in the late-nineteenth-century American Southwest.

But that’s our history and our world. In the world of Witchfire, witches are real. And you are the punishing hand of the Church.

    Atlas has become one of the biggest disappointments of 2018, and it hasn't gone unnoticed. It has an abysmal rating on Steam and Valve are now refunding the game even if someone played it for more than two hours, which doesn't occur often. Atlas has been called a cheap reskin of ARK: Survival Evolved and it pretty much is just an asset flip by Grapeshot Games. The start is identical, UI looks just about the same and gameplay seems to be pasted from ARK.

    Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition’s in-game ads have come and gone. The garish and intrusive ads, optional though they may be, no longer display in Capcom’s fighting game, and Street Fighter series producer Yoshinori Ono said the company is looking at ways to improve them. Sponsored content came to Street Fighter 5 in early December. While the initial pitch for in-game ads seemed tolerable at best, the implementation was ugly and comically bad. Ads for the Capcom Pro Tour were slathered over the flesh and costumes (and children’s skulls) of the Street Fighter roster.

    BioWare founders awarded the Order of Canada for 'revolutionary' impact on videogames

    Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka co-founded BioWare in Edmonton, Alberta, in 1995, shortly after graduating from medical school. Its first game, Shattered Steel, was a modest success, but the second is the one that put it on the map: Baldur's Gate was a major hit that led into an even bigger sequel, other much-loved D&D-based RPGs, two of the best Star Wars games ever, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and more.
