Here’s how to access Diablo III’s newest Cow Level

If you played Diablo II back in the day, then you remember the Cow Level. Sure, Blizzard had a good time telling everyone that it didn't exist, and still toys with the community to this day. However, despite what they say, the Cow Level exists, and there's actually a new one that you can only access during the month of March.

Quantum Break’s PC version will need an internet connection to see in-game videos

Microsoft is pushing to bring more Xbox exclusive game to Windows. While that initially seemed like a good thing, there are a host of good reasons why you don't want to go out and buy the latest title on the Windows Store. And now it seems like the Windows version of Quantum Break will need an open internet connection, in order to get all of the content.

Rock Band 4 is coming to the PC, if they can get the funds

Rock Band 4 is coming to the PC, if they can get the funds

My love affair with Rock Band has been well-documented here at SlashGear, since I first heard about the game back in 2007. I drove about 6 hours just to play the game for the first time, when Harmonix took the game on tour. Well, nearly a decade has passed since those days, and the team behind the game are working on something they've been wanting to do since the very first Rock Band came out.

The Star Wars Humble Bundle II is an absolute steal

The Star Wars Humble Bundle II is an absolute steal

The Star Wars excitement has died down a bit, since the release of The Force Awakens late last year. However, it's still a fantastic time to be a Star Wars fan. The Blu-ray release isn't too far off now, and if you want to play some classic Star Wars games to fill that void, now is the perfect time.

Print your own Firewatch map, just like the good old days

Print your own Firewatch map, just like the good old days

Remember the old days of gaming, when you actually got an instruction manual with your purchase? Sometimes, games with particularly large open worlds would come with their own physical map. You'd unfold it, and try to get all of the creases out before hanging it on your bedroom wall where you could reference it. Well, one developer wanted to give fans that same experience, despite offering the game digitally.

Peek behind the scenes of Portal, and hear how the voice acting magic happens

Peek behind the scenes of Portal, and hear how the voice acting magic happens

Voice acting is an interesting craft. While you might think that it's just as simple as walking into a booth, and delivering lines, there's a lot more to it. After all, you need to convey all of the emotion of a scene, using nothing more than your voice. If you've ever wanted a peek behind the scenes to see how the voices in Portal are done, then I've got a treat for you.

Sony announces PS4 update with remote play for PC and Mac, beta starts soon

As time goes on, gamers are slowly getting the ability to play their games where and how they want. Currently, Xbox One owners can play their games on their TV, or they can boot up a computer somewhere in the house and stream their favorite games to their desktop or laptop. PS4 owners haven't been able to enjoy this particular feature. But soon, that will be changing.

Don’t buy PC games on the Windows Store, not yet at least

Don’t buy PC games on the Windows Store, not yet at least

Over the weekend, Microsoft put up the listing for Quantum Break on the Windows Store. I'd give you a link, but the page has already been pulled, for some reason. It's probably for the best, as the more information that comes out, the more I'm unlikely to recommend that anyone purchase the game for PC.

Minecraft’s Combat Update adds off-hand items and cooldown timers

Since playing Star Wars Galaxies all those years ago, whenever I hear the term "Combat Update" for a game, I get horrible flashbacks. However, not every developer messes up a game as soundly as SOE did. Today, Minecraft is getting its own Combat Update, and it looks fantastic.

The Division won’t have microtransactions, except it will

The Division won’t have microtransactions, except it will

I'm pretty excited for Tom Clancy's The Division. I was cautiously excited until the beta, where my brother and I spent a good while mowing down enemies together. While it wasn't a perfect experience, it had all of the elements that I was looking for in a co-op MMORPG shooter. One of the biggest things I've been wondering is whether or not the game would have microtransactions, which can ruin any gaming experience.

Wooting One is the world’s first analog keyboard

There are many different types of keyboards that are available. Rubber domes, buckling-springs, scissor-switches, mechanical switches, and more are out there for your choosing. However, they all have one thing in common. Every keyboard out there is digital, and one company is looking to change that.

Want your own Dark Souls Estus Flask? Here’s what you have to buy

Want your own Dark Souls Estus Flask? Here’s what you have to buy

When big games are released, the publisher will often make some sort of "deluxe" or "collector's" edition available. When you cough up the dough for this special edition of the game, you'll get things like art books, music, and maybe some kind of cool collectible. Dark Souls III is no different, however, this is one of the first times I can recall a game getting a special version of a strategy guide with similar bonuses.
