To celebrate the third year of Kerbal Space Program, developer Squad announced that the game will be on sale for 40% off until the end of Kerbal Kon on Friday, purchasable from Steam or the KSP website. The company will also be making a donation to Love Life Hope, a children’s orphanage based in Tapachula, Mexico.
Race the Sun, the procedurally generated dodge-racer greenlit back in early October, is now officially on Steam. The game’s new launch trailer shows off its trademark hyper-fast, minimalist flight and new Steam integration features.
The Survivor 2999 site may have been a hoax, but Fallout 4 is in development according to recently leaked documents which suggest that it will be set in the Boston area. Don't act surprised. Of course Fallout 4 is in development! It was never a question of if, but when.
The finished release of Kerbal Space Program will include official multiplayer modes, according to developer Squad. How exactly a multiplayer mode will work mechanically is undecided, but Squad says it's committed to building beyond the current singleplayer model.
Paradox Interactive announced that its Conquest of Paradise expansion for Europa Universalis 4 will release on January 14. The expansion, which focuses on the discovery of the American continent, also overhauls how you play with the Native American nations, as Paradox Development Studio Manager Johan Andersson details in this first developer diary video.
SOMA, the space-borne horror show being built by Frictional Games, isn’t due for release until sometime in 2015, but that doesn’t stop a steadystream of trailers and teasers from showing off brief moments of hopefully frightening gameplay. The latest trailer features in-game environments specifically designed to deliver a case of the heebie jeebies.
End-of-the-year lists are great for shining a bright light on stuff we've missed and stuff we might want to see again. After starting with a number somewhere north of 10,000, ModDB's Mod of the Year award is down to its Top 100, a list of upcoming and released mods compiled after more than a week of player feedback.
Look at the expression of the man in that picture. Can't make it out? Here's a clearer version. Can't make that out? Don't worry, we can zoom and enhance. That's the expression of a man who's learned that new story DLC will be out for Assassin's Creed IV: Go Go Power Pirates! next week, but who has still barely scratched the surface of the game. As somebody who's only a few hours into it myself, I can sympathise. Maybe you can too?
The Kühler H20 1250 is the latest in Antec's run of liquid-cooling setups. It’s a bulky, 240mm, closed-loop water cooler with a single water pump sitting atop each of the radiator’s fans. They reckon that doubling the water pumps should boost the cooling performance and increase the efficiency of that radiator.
I checked out the predecessor to the Kühler 1250 earlier this year in the paper edition of PC Gamer. The Kühler 920 suffered from a combination of issues, including awkward CPU mounts, buggy software and weak cooling performance. The biggest problem for the 920 was the length of time it took to return the CPU to its idle temperature - four minutes instead of the five seconds of the impressive Cooler Master Seidon 240.
GOG don't want to set the world on fire, they just want to impart Fallout in your (shopping) cart. The easiest way to do that, of course, is to make Fallout 1, 2 and Tactics completely free for the next couple of days, which is what they've done. Why? Firstly, because it's an apocalyptically good way to launch their Winter Sale. Secondly, because rights to the series are currently pending a change in ownership, which may see the classic RPGs removed from sale on the service.
Revealed in last week's class round-up trailer, Carbine Studios' latest DevSpeak video details the last of their WildStar character class reveals: The Engineer. Unlike real world engineers, this one has particle firing heavy weapons, robots and a mech suit. At least, let's hope that's unlike real engineers. (Note to self: find out what engineers are plotting.)
"Khaleesi"... "Car-leesy"... "Kaleeeessi". Oh, sorry. You've just caught me practising my Jorah Mormont impression. I want to get it perfected before next week, when Crusader Kings 2's brilliant Game of Thrones mod will launch its Essos update. That's because the arrival of the Eastern continent will also mean the introduction of its most famous inhabitant: Dany Stormborn and her three dragons.
In a completely unpredictable shock twist, Dota 2's Frostivus event has been cancelled. Again. So what holiday halting incident has hit the wizard-'em-up this time? It's the return of the King. Sort of. Wraith-Night is the newly announced seasonal event, and it's centred around the Skeleton King's transformation into Wraith King. He's got a new look, a new name, a new voice, and, most importantly, he's ballin' out of control.
Uber Entertainment has announced a substantial new beta build for Planetary Annihilation, which has been available on Steam Early Access since September. Last week, it also said that it's delaying the release of the game until "it's done."
Who would win a fight: Batman or Superman? It’s an age-old question for comic book fans, and the reason a game like Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition exists. We want to see our favorite heroes and villains beat the snot out of each other.
KerbalEdu, a cooperative, school-friendly version of space exploration sim Kerbal Space Program, will officially launch next Wednesday, December 18. The new program was created and will be managed by TeacherGaming, which previously saw success with Minecraft variant MinecraftEdu. KerbalEdu already has a small number of schools working toward setting up a program, and over 2,000 schools are in TeacherGaming’s established network.
Brace yourself. Today, Valve announced that it's ready to start shipping out its first batch of Steam Machines and Steam Controllers to the lucky 300 users selected to participate in the beta. If all goes according to plan, the machines will ship out of the factory this Friday, Dec. 13.
Kerbal Space Program has announced the full schedule for Kerbal Kon, the birthday celebration for the in-development exploration game, which starts tomorrow. In addition to showing details for changes to the game’s science and career modes, developer Squad will also host streams from some of KSP’s most popular YouTube personalities and former NASA astronaut Ed Lu. The action will start tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. central time, and the .23 update will come down to players next week.
After we unveiled the Large Pixel Collider to the world, one of the first questions we received was, "Where did you get the cash for that sweet rig, brah?" And while we can't reveal just how many of our own organs we've sold to black market buyers, we can tell you how much each part costs, in this handy dandy video. We even use Monopoly money to illustrate the point, because it may be the only money we have left.
