Far Cry 4’s map was reused in Primal, and Ubisoft should have embraced it

Back in 2013, Ubisoft made an interesting move with the Far Cry series. Far Cry 3 did incredibly well, and the team decided that they'd have some fun and make a stand-alone expansion for the game that took a completely different turn that we were used to. The result was a retro-futuristic game starring a cyborg named Rex "Power" Colt named Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

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.

Lamborghini Centenario to make its digital debut in new Forza game

If you're into cars, you've likely already been following the Geneva Motor Show, which kicked off this week. And that means you've seen the new Lamborghini Centenario, one of the biggest highlights of the event so far.

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.

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.

Game developer Remedy's newest title, Quantum Break, isn't out for another month, but evidence has already been discovered that a long-awaited sequel to their previous series, the Xbox 360's Alan Wake, may be in the works.

At a .NET conference in Madrid, CEO Satya Nadella publicly confirmed that Windows 10 Universal apps are indeed coming to the Xbox One console, turning the already powerful gaming device into more than just a gaming and entertainment device.

Here’s your Fallout 4 Survival Mode guide

Here’s your Fallout 4 Survival Mode guide

Kids these days have it so easy. Back in my day, we played games like Battletoads and Karate Kid, and spent countless hours just trying to get back to the spot where we kept dying. Now they've got quick saves, difficulty levels, and the internet to help guide you through any game you'd like. But Bethesda wants to make Fallout 4 hard enough to satisfy even the most masochistic of gamers.

Bethesda outlines Fallout 4 Creation Kit release plans

Bethesda outlines Fallout 4 Creation Kit release plans

Fallout 4 was, and is, a great game. Sure, there are plenty of things to argue about, such as the never-ending missions that sent you off to rescue settlements. But overall, I enjoyed it a lot. I put it down a month or two ago, and have been letting it sit until Bethesda opens up mod support for the game. And now we finally have an idea of when that will be.
