Rocket League comes to Xbox One this month

I've personally never been much of a fan of soccer, whether it's watching it on TV, or playing it in a video game. However, developer Psyonix realized that what the sport needed was a bunch of rocket-fueled cars to liven it up. The game has been limited to the PC and PS4, however, that will be changing very soon.

The Division Beta extended until Tuesday

After being waitlisted for a day, I spent a fair bit of time over the weekend playing The Division. I'm saving my judgment for the game until the full release, but it's safe to say that I enjoyed it enough to keep playing it for a while. If you've been sad that the beta ended last night, I've got some good news for you.

GOG launches early-access program

GOG launches early-access program

Early-access games are essentially games that aren't finished yet, that you can pay money to play anyway. This helps the developer out by giving them additional funding during the development phase, and it also allows them to get feedback from people who are essentially testing out the game for them. While some people do take advantage of this concept, plenty of games have been made successful through this means. Unfortunately Steam has been the only place to realistically sell early access to a game.

In the 90's John Romero was a legend. He helped co-create games like Doom and Quake, which helped define the first-person shooter. After the massive failure of Daikatana, he sort of faded into obscurity. He's worked on a few games since then, but nothing as big as his early work. However, his next game might change that.

Dangerous Golf brings powerups and destruction to the game

Dangerous Golf brings powerups and destruction to the game

I have a strange relationship with golf. I've played a few games with friends over the years. It's enjoyable, but not something I go out of my way to do. Putt-putt, on the other hand, is something that I could do all day long. My relationship with video game versions of golf are similar. I can enjoy serious ones with friends, but give me something a little more silly, and I'll probably enjoy it a lot more. Which is exactly why I'm looking forward to Dangerous Golf.

Mod turns Jedi Academy into a 1v1 Star Wars fighting game

Mod turns Jedi Academy into a 1v1 Star Wars fighting game

Back in 1997, we were graced with one of the weirdest additions to the Star Wars franchise. No, I'm not talking about Sy Snootles getting a CGI makeover. Rather, I'm talking about the release of Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi for the original Playstation. It was a bizzare fighting game that frankly, was pretty terrible, with its only redeeming quality being that it was something new with Star Wars on it.

There was a time when Atari was the biggest name in video games. Sadly, the company has changed hands so many times that it's hard to even call it the same company we once knew and loved. But the games that they made back in the day are still fun to look back on, and soon you'll have a new way to play them.

Despite the fact that we've known about the Nintendo NX for quite some time, we actually know very little about it. We know that the company is partnering with DeNA for it, and that it may be some sort of mobile/console hybrid. And today's discovery presents us with more questions than it answers.

Original Doom gets a new level, courtesy of co-creator John Romero

John Romero might not be a name that gets talked about much these days. However, back in the 90's, the man was a legend, and even considered a god amongst gamers. If you're not familiar, Romero, along with partner John Carmack, created games like Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein 3D. In essence, those two can be credited with creating the modern first-person shooter. Well in a surprising move, John Romero has released his first Doom level in 21 years.
