You only get One Life in this new FPS

You only get One Life in this new FPS

The formula for an FPS game is pretty simple. You run around, shoot enemies, die, respawn. Rinse and repeat until the match is done. Right? Well, a new game is looking to change up that formula ever so slightly. The aptly-named title One Life (currently on Steam Greenlight) aims to give players one chance to play their game. Should you die, you will be forever locked out of the game.

Prey for the Gods looks like Shadow of the Colossus, for PC and Mac

When Shadow of the Colossus debuted in 2005, it turned a lot of heads. The game's minimalist landscapes and immersive gameplay have been identified by many who argue that video games are truly a form of art. Plus, who doesn't love scaling gigantic beings and bringing them to their knees? Well, the guys at No Matter Studios have taken some obvious cues from Team Ico, and released a trailer for their upcoming game, Prey for the Gods.

Humble Bundle is offering a monthly serving of games

It seems that the days of Humble Bundle being simply the best way to grab indie games is officially over. Well, it has long "evolved" from that original goal but now it is entering into a new stage of business. Now it will also have a monthly subscription service of its own. Called, what else, the Humble Monthly, the digital distribution platform is gearing up to offer a random and secret assortment of games every month for a flat fee of $12.

Need for Speed PC delayed to 2016 to add unlocked framerates

Need for Speed PC delayed to 2016 to add unlocked framerates

2016 is the new 2015. At least for the upcoming new Need for Speed game's PC version. EA Games and developer Ghost have taken to the game's website to announce a sort of good news, bad news kind of deal. The PC version of the hit PC game won't be coming until Spring 2016, while the PS4 and Xbox One versions are still on track for November. The unfortunate delay, however, is necessary to implement what is apparently a most requested feature: unlocked frame rates for the PC version.

Titanfall to get free-to-play version in Asia

Titanfall, the hit mech-based first-person shooter originally released for Xbox and PC last year, is probably the last title you'd expect to go free-to-play, but that's what's happening. But don't expect it to be showing up on your smartphone or tablet, where free-to-play games are a dime-a-dozen. Instead, Titanfall will be getting a special PC release just for the Asian market, where the free-to-play genre is huge, thanks to a partnership between the game's makers and Japan's Nexon.

Help is on the way: Arkham Knight PC interim patch in August

Help is on the way: Arkham Knight PC interim patch in August

Rumor has it that Batman: Arkham Knight for PC won't really be fixed until around September. Whether that is true, it seems that the publicity of that leak has spurned Warner Bros. and Rocksteady into action. Over at its Steam Community page, the publisher announced that it will be releasing a patch as early as August. But don't get your hopes up too high. This one was clearly labeled an "interim" patch, hinting that the main patch that will bring a close to this chapter is still to come.

Batman: Arkham Knight PC fix still months away

Batman: Arkham Knight PC fix still months away

Those are the words that no gamer wants to hear, especially after having invested, both financially and emotionally, on what should have been a blockbuster title. But alas, that seems to exactly be the case with Warner Bros. and Rocksteady's failed attempt to bring Batman to the PC. According to a leaked email from a retailer, a fix for the almost atrocious PC port is still a few months coming, which, for the sake of sanity and world peace, we'll presume to be September this year.
