OpenLara lets you play the first Tomb Raider in your browser

Tomb Raider's Lara Croft is easily one of the most iconic females in the gaming industry. And although she started out as a rather inappropriate icon, she eventually matured into something more befitting a modern female lead. But despite the advancements in the game's series and lore, the original Tomb Raider game still holds a special place in fans' hearts. And now you can relive those experiences, or live them for the first time, right on your web browser, thanks to the open source OpenLara project.

StarCraft gets its first patch in 8 years, finally goes free

StarCraft gets its first patch in 8 years, finally goes free

It isn't that uncommon for software to stop receiving updates years after it has been launched. After all, even Microsoft just recently did that with Vista. That is even truer for games, whose lifespans are a lot shorter than operating systems. Unless you're talking about StarCraft, which many loved and still love to play. While the game, which launched in 1998, formally stopped getting updates more than 8 years ago, Blizzard has restarted the development machine as it re-launches the real-time strategy game, this time for free.

The 1996 Tamagotchi is back, but in a smaller egg

Wish you could raise a virtual pet that didn't need to be involved in fights? Jealous of the portability of the Nintendo Switch? Have a thing for all things retro and pixelated?

Cult classic Planescape: Torment is getting an Enhanced Edition

Cult classic Planescape: Torment is getting an Enhanced Edition

Planescape: Torment has always been an odd duck even when it was released back in 1999. Although set in the universe of the popular Dungeons & Dragons RPG, Planescape is one of the franchise' most alien campaigns. And even among story-centric RPGs of its generation, Torment's dialogue-heavy flavor almost makes you feel like playing a choose your own adventure game. It's exactly because of those factors that Planescape: Torment has become one of the most notable titles in gaming history, and is now being honored with its very own Enhanced Edition.

Nintendo Switch’s Arms “boxing game” gets roster, weapons reveal

Nintendo Switch’s Arms “boxing game” gets roster, weapons reveal

Although the Nintendo Switch has quite a number of games available for it now, Zelda: Breath of the Wild is by far its still most popular title. That said, it isn’t one that’s exactly designed to take advantage of the Switch’s unique features, like the detachable Joy-cons. That distinction will probably belong to Nintendo’s somewhat odd Arms game. The game isn’t due until Spring, however, so we’ll have to make do with some videos that reveal the characters and weapons available for this game.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends card game lands on PCs, mobile soon

The Elder Scrolls: Legends card game lands on PCs, mobile soon

Well-seasoned gamers will probably remember The Elder Scrolls, particularly Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim, as first person fantasy RPGs. Getting with the times, however, TES, as it is fondly known, has branched out to other types as well, first with a still-running MMORPG and, now, a digital card game. In the same vein as Hearthstone, which is set in the world of Warcraft, Legends brings the lore, creatures, and unique flavor of the Elder Scrolls to a less adrenaline-rushing battle of wits on the PC and, soon, on tablets, Macs, and phones.

There’s an odd Pokemon mobile game coming soon

There’s an odd Pokemon mobile game coming soon

Although big among gamers, Pokemon really hit mainstream when Pokemon GO launched last year. Although the hype may have dialed down a bit, the latest big update might revive the fever. Not wanting to let the opportunity pass, The Pokemon Company, the real actual owners of the Pokemon brand, is teasing a new game that will be coming soon to Android and iOS. You might, however, want to set your expectations low, as the game seemingly revolves around none other than Magikarp.

Make your own bunk in Fallout Shelter on Xbox One, Windows 10

As promised, Fallout Shelter has made its way to Microsoft's gaming platforms, which is to say, the Xbox One and Windows 10 (sorry, Xbox 360 owners).

Get the Mega Man 2.5D fangame before it’s gone

Get the Mega Man 2.5D fangame before it’s gone

As beloved as certain games might be, even the biggest fan has, at one point in time or another, wondered what would have happened of the game had this or that feature or was made with this kind of technology. Such thinking has led to not a few fan-made "remakes" of popular titles. Like this "Mega Man 2.5D", which gives the popularly difficult platformer a half new dimensions. Considering the lukewarm, even negative, reception that the Mega Man Mobile launch received, fans of the blue bomber might be hungry for some thing new, refreshing, and daring.

Nintendo Switch titles: here’s what’s coming soon

Nintendo Switch titles: here’s what’s coming soon

Nintendo has just finished its hour-long spiel about how the Nintendo Switch is the culmination and the amalgamation of its gaming history, from the very first Nintendo Entertainment System all the way up to the Wii U. But while the console might be interesting, it will only be as strong as the games available for it. And the Switch definitely has a varied roster, with some bordering on the "meh" and others on the "take my money already!"

Mega Man Mobile is here, six games for $2 each

Mega Man Mobile is here, six games for $2 each

True to its word, Capcom has indeed released the mobile port of its first six Mega Man games, though it should have probably chosen a better time to do so. Mega Man Mobile’s launch is likely to be buried under the flood of CES 2017 announcements this week. But that might also work in its favor, considering the rather low rating the game is getting. Hate it or love it, Mega Man 1 to 6 is now available on Android and iOS, but you’ll have to pony up $1.99 to get each and every single game in the list.
