Seven months after the release of Civilization: Beyond Earth, the game's first expansion pack has been announced. Called Rising Tide, this expansion pack revolves around water, water, and more water. Players will be able to colonize and explore vast oceans, while encountering new leaders and aliens, and producing unique units. Rising Tide will introduce an overhauled diplomacy system, adding even more complexity to your relationships, and also adds four new factions. One of these factions is called Al Falah, a group of nomad explorers who've descended from wealthy Middle Eastern states. Affinities... Read more...
It was being hunted... The monster had been avoiding a team of four hunters ever since it saw them jump out of the spaceship. But by the time the hunters’ feet had touched the ground, the monster was already distancing itself, jumping over large boulders and running through trees in order to get away from the human threat. Along the way, it would slay any of the indigenous wildlife in its path, to devour, in order to evolve and become stronger. Time passed, as the monster played a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the four hunters, while continuing to feed. Now, it felt strong enough to take... Read more...
Planning to call in sick to school or work tomorrow so that you can play Evolve all day long? Brace yourself, a 3GB patch is coming. Developer Turtle Rock Studios says you'll need to download and apply the massive patch before jumping into online play. By applying the update, you'll benefit from improved load times, better matchmaking, and network bandwidth optimizations, to name a few of the fixes. “What can you really add to Evolve at this point? It’s already gone gold!," Turtle Rock Studios stated in a blog post. "This question came up a lot over the course of the Open Beta weekend in January.... Read more...
2K Games and Gearbox Software has a magnificent duo of gaming releases to announce today, starting off with Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, which will be available for both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. The set will include both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which was released late last year. The Handsome Collection will also come with downloadable content for both titles. While that’s all well and good, there’s an even greater bundle available that will not only bring out your inner child, but will also empty your wallet. If you’re one of the lucky 5,000 people that... Read more...
After blowing out both of my knees, at least one of which is still in need of more surgical repair, I find it's safer and generally easier on my body (though not always my sanity) to drop dimes and take it strong to the rim in basketball simulations than it is to hop back on the blacktop. That's one of the reasons why I'm looking forward to NBA 2K15 by 2K Games. And the other? Face mapping technology. I'm short, white, and like to pretend I still have an athletic build. Creating an in-game character with those traits is pretty easy, but even after tweaking the hair and goatee, the resemblance is... Read more...
Gamespy's multiplayer servers are getting unplugged and going dark on May 31, and as the deadline approaches, game publishers are scrambling to find new homes. For 2K, the solution is simple -- send its more popular games over to Steamworks. That includes the first Borderlands titles and several Civilization games, which are all headed to Steam. "Beginning May 31, 2014, Borderlands 1 and select titles from the Civilization catalog will temporarily go offline while service is transitioned to Steamworks," 2K announced in a blog post. "During the transition, players will experience interruption of... Read more...
Well, we've gone and done it now. In an effort to advance civilizations through the wonders of science and technology through the years, mankind has ruined this hunk of rock known as Earth, which is no longer fit for human habitation. If our species is to survive, we'll need a new home, and it's with that premise that Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth takes place. You're part of an expedition tasked with finding a new home elsewhere in the universe. The next chapter of the human race is yours to write as you attempt to create a new civilization in space. No need to feel overwhelmed, though,... Read more...
Throw your controller across the room in a fit of rage, if you must. Hell, punch a pillow, kick a nearby door, or question the virtual referee's eyesight. At no point, however, are you to curse within earshot of the Kinect or PlayStation Camera while playing NBA 2K14, because if you do, there's a good chance you'll be hit with a technical foul for using foul language. I can attest that this same feature exists in NBA 2K13 (hey, things get heated out there, what can I say?). Still, some gamers are taking exception to not being able to swear in their own living room without being penalized for it,... Read more...
As sad as it might be for Borderlands 2 fans that the fourth and final DLC is to be issued soon, it seems extremely likely that it's going to be the best one yet. Titled Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, this DLC features the one-and-only super-energetic Tina, who forces the entire crew to play a board game called "Bunkers & Badasses". The premise sounds odd, but because of its design, this DLC will offer a lot of variety. As the five-minute gameplay video below will show, you effectively play inside of Tina's boardgame, which on the surface appears totally blank. While inside, what you'll... Read more...
This morning  at the PAX East show in Boston, MA -- though slightly forbidden, we were able to steal some video footage of the infamous and forever anticipated Duke Nukem Forever.  Finally set to release in May 2011, the folllowing is early in-game footage of actual game play.  Ready to kick ass and chew bubblegum ("and yeah, he's all outta gum"), Duke is actually looking pretty slick and the baddies, well, they're looking bad, as you'd expect... 2K Games was allowing controlled 20 minute gaming sessions for show attendees.  Game play itself was a hoot as you'd expect, with...
