Some people are just hard to shop for. If you’ve got a friend, family member, or significant other that’s really into Minecraft, but you have no idea what would be good to get for them, this is the guide for […]
After spending a considerable amount of time messing with the categories for all my Steam games, I logged in this morning on my desktop to find my work had been erased! Luckily, my laptop was still showing all my Steam […]
Thanksgiving 2014 is upon us! Let’s show everyone our l33t moves in OlliOlli, head home for the holidays with Gone Home, reclaim the homelands with Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, escape in-laws… err.. zombies in Teleglitch, and stuff ourselves with bullets in Tower of Guns.
In many ways, Beyond Earth cribs from the Civilization 5 formula. However, there are enough differences that people who have played a lot of Civ 5 might find themselves a bit lost at first.

It’s Halloween, so let’s dress up! We’ll pretend to be robotic in Steamworld Dig, a fighter ace in Luftrausers, put underpants on our head with Tiny and Big, wear sheep’s clothing for The Wolf Among Us, and cover all the superhero bases with Lego Marvel Superheroes.

I’ve invested a lot of time into Destiny’s “end game” so I’ll show you how to get the gear you need to level up past 20 in Destiny WITHOUT a ton of grinding.
