While people have been using Ikea stuff in the gaming space forever—right now I’m sitting on an Ikea office chair and using an Ikea desk—the Swedish company has never gone to the trouble of releasing dedicated gaming furniture before. That’s about to change Read more...
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous , the recently released character RPG developed by Owlcat Games, seems really neat. I like the writing so far and the character work seems solid. But holy shit, it has possibly the most overwhelming character creator I’ve ever touched. If your

Like a real-life Tomb Raider run sans picturesque vistas from an ancient civilization, a pair of YouTuber game hunters found themselves in an extremely messy room that had been locked for close to 20 years. But amid the filth, they found a treasure trove of factory-sealed video
Over the last few weeks, much hay has been made about the PlayStation 5, specifically a new revision of the Sony console that includes a smaller heatsink . Early reports criticized this change for leading to increased temperatures during operation, but fears that this would
Returnal , the PlayStation 5 time loop game that isn’t the one everyone’s talking about this week, might seem like it’s about escaping a temporally out-of-whack exoplanet. But really, it’s about getting your lunch money repeatedly stolen by malevolent tentacle monsters. Much
There I was, creeping along a cliff on the outside of a big castle-like structure when I saw a single enemy, completely alone. He was standing on the edge of the cliff with his back to me. This setup ranked high on my “kickable moment meter,” a situation which routinely leads
The Tales series of RPGs has long been known for starring a compelling cast of main characters. In that regard, the latest entry, last week’s Tales of Arise , doesn’t disappoint. All six party members are deeply fleshed-out, fascinating people. And like those of every previous
Oh my goodness, there is so much going on in Day Repeat Day . I went into it knowing absolutely nothing, and came out having learned an enormous amount and yet having so many questions. To be asinine, this exists on the midpoint between a Papers Please -like, and a lost phone

Next spring, yet another one-to-one scale Gundam will go up in Japan. This one will be located at a LaLaport shopping center in Fukuoka. I find this pretty exciting, but it turns out not everyone does. This particular incarnation is a ν (Nu) Gundam, but it’s a revamped version.
A few days ago Eurogamer closed their forums, bringing to an end over 20 years of community discussion. The site explained the move like sites and companies always do (only a few are still using them), and it made sense the way it always does (that’s a lot of money for not much
In 2020, popular figurine manufacturer Good Smile Company sued two former vice presidents, Guy Brand and James Young-sik Kim, for competing with its merchandise business while employed at GSC. In response, the former employees have filed a cross-complaint claiming that GSC
It isn’t April first, but nobody told Razer when it announced its gaming “finger sleeves.” Yes, finger sleeves: They are literally little sleeves that cap off your fingers to supposedly enhance their grip, and these particular finger sleeves are pitched at the gamer market.
Picture this: You’re playing Pokémon Unite as your favorite monster (Greninja mains, sound off in the comments), whooping some ass. But as the game goes on, you find that your team is seriously STRUGGLING. What do you do, choose the surrender option or stick it out until the
Nesting Games , a newly formed development studio based in Québec, Canada, today announced its co-ownership by Italian publisher Digital Bros . Nesting, officially established in August by former Ubisoft employees, wasted no time in distancing itself from the open world style
