Myst 25th anniversary Kickstarter brings all 7 titles to Windows 10

Although it’s arguably not as iconic as, say, Doom, Cyan World’s Myst has a cult following that the 90s gaming market by surprise and have been referenced in pop culture and media time and again. Since its initial release, the game has produced 5 sequels and one 3D “remake”. Given its age, however, not all those titles have become available or work on the latest Windows systems. Now the developers have gathered all 7 titles into one to make them all work on Windows 10 in a 25th anniversary collection only available from Kickstarter.

Razer Game Store sells games with rewards for each purchase

Razer Game Store sells games with rewards for each purchase

Steam has totally changed the way the world buys and consumes games. While still in existence, physical discs and boxes have become more collectors’ items rather than essential installation media. Almost all major game publishers have tried to wean their customers away from Steam via their own stores with little success (except via exclusivity). Razer, most famous for its gaming peripherals, has also launched its own digital game distribution platform and it’s dangling perks for each purchase to get gamers on board.

World of Final Fantasy comes the PCs via Steam

Once upon a time, you needed to have a specific brand of console in order to play a Final Fantasy title. Today, you can find many of those even on smartphones and, of course, PCs. Aiming to spread its franchise to as many types of gamers as possible, Square Enix has released or re-released FF games on almost every platform, the latest one being last year’s World of Final Fantasy that will either make you cringe or fall in love with the game’s unique visual treatment.

GOG Galaxy goes out of beta, adds cloud saving

GOG Galaxy goes out of beta, adds cloud saving

When it comes to digital distribution of PC games, Steam is undoubtedly the most well-known name, though some, like EA, have their own stores and distribution systems. Steam, however, is hardly the only game in town, especially when it comes to older titles. That's where GOG, formerly "Good Old Games", comes in. With GOG Galaxy, however, it is becoming more like Steam but with one important caveat: the user is still in (almost) complete control of everything.

Square Enix brings back the Surprise Box in time for Spring

Square Enix brings back the Surprise Box in time for Spring

Subscription boxes have become quite the fad but not everyone actually wants random physical trinkets that pile up. Some, like gamers, prefer to go digital. Square Enix once had such an offering that blended the random whimsical fun of subscription boxes with its digital titles and now that “box” is making a comeback. The Square Enix Surprise Box has returned to keep you occupied this Spring season. Presuming, of course, you get lucky and don’t own any of the surprise games already.

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.

Steam finally lets you permanently delete games from your library

Steam finally lets you permanently delete games from your library

Valve's Steam has turned into a behemoth of a digital marketplace for PC games, selling just about any title that sees release today. That means some gamers have amassed huge collections, including games they may never play again, or never really wanted in the first place, whether they were bundle extras or redeemed gifts. Unfortunately, Steam has never really made it an option to delete a game from a user's library. Until today.

PC gamers be warned: Dragon Quest Heroes coming to Steam

PC gamers be warned: Dragon Quest Heroes coming to Steam

That may sound a bit ominous and that would be partly correct, considering how many hours might be sacrificed and lost to this title. For the first time in known gaming history, a Dragon Quest game will be made available on the Steam distribution platform. OK, it might not be exactly like a true fledged Dragon Quest game, but the ridiculously named "Dragon Quest Heroes The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below" will be as recent a DQ title as you can get, and now it's heading over to the PC as well.

Batman: Arkham Knight PC re-release set for October 28

Batman: Arkham Knight PC re-release set for October 28

Batman: Arkham Knight has become one of the most notable titles in the Arkham line, not because of how great it was, though it probably is to some, but because of how the PC version of the game was so horribly broken that Warner Bros Interactive pulled the game off shelves indefinitely. That was back in June and though a final fix for the PC port has been promised, no date was given. Well, now WB is giving a date. On 28th October, at exactly 10 a.m. PDT, Batman: Arkham Knight will finally be playable on the PC. Hopefully.

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.
