No Man’s Sky PC disaster reminds us why we should stop pre-ordering games

In case you missed the news, No Man's Sky launched on PC last week, and the version that appeared on Steam and GOG was in rough shape.

GoldenEye 007 gets HD remake as Source engine mod

First released in 1997 on the Nintendo 64, GoldenEye 007 became an instant classic.

Now, 19 years later, and with 10 years of work from dedicated fans, a complete HD remake is available on the PC, built with Valve’s Source engine.

New No Man’s Sky exploit lets players duplicate the rarest items

The highly anticipated game No Man's Sky was finally released this week, and now players have the opportunity to explore it near-limitless galaxy and estimated 18 quintillion planets. A big part of the game's focus is simply exploring these new worlds, cataloging the creatures found there, and collecting resources.

StarCraft might be getting an HD remaster

In the realm of real-time strategy games, next to nothing beats the original StarCraft (unless you happen to be more of a WarCraft fan).

Disney brings Aladdin and other 16-bit classics to PC, Mac, and Linux

If you're like me and grew up in the 16-bit era of video games, then you'll probably remember Disney's collection of platformers fondly.
