After months of hints, teasers and newsletters, we finally got a first look at LawBreakers, the new game from Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski. LawBreakers is a free-to-play, multiplayer online FPS for PC with several classes to choose from as players take part in five-on-five battles in a universe where gravity isn’t much of a concern.
I don’t often have the time to review smaller downloadable games on the site, but I had to make an exception for Rocket League. I first got my hands on Rocket League during a closed beta earlier this year. Within minutes, I was completely captivated.
For a week straight, I’d hop online after work every night with my friend and play a dozen or so matches against other players. It was the first time in a long time that I couldn’t help but play just one more round. And then one more. And then another. But even after spending an embarrassing number of hours on the beta, I still hadn’t gotten enough. More →
There were few third-party games as anticipated as Star Wars Battlefront at E3 2015. I wasn’t as pleased with the reboot as I’d expected to be, but I only had a chance to play a single match on a single map. Battlefront only really thrives once you get a hang of the character classes and learn the maps backwards and forwards.
Unfortunately, we aren’t going to have that opportunity for another few months, but there are gamers out there who are currently participating in the closed alpha, and one of them decided to share some footage from the game. More →

The modding community has been growing steadily ever since the dawn of PC gaming, but only in recent years has the idea of paying for user-created content become a reality.
Valve has been leading the charge with the Steam Workshop, giving Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2 modders the opportunity to share their creations with a large audience, but starting this week, modders will be able to start setting their own prices for those creations and selling them directly to consumers.

Grand Theft Auto 5 has been out on PC for a week now, and despite a few technical hiccups during the first few days, the critical and commercial reaction has been outstanding. Rockstar Games is getting an unprecedented amount of mileage out of GTA 5, but do you really need a second, or possibly third copy of the game?
Surprising no one, Grand Theft Auto 5 has had a smashing debut on PC, quickly becoming the most played third-party game on Steam just days after its release. With its detailed customization options, exclusive video editor and additional radio station, gamers who already owned the game are finding plenty of reasons to jump back into Los Santos.
Starting tomorrow, many gamers are going to be faced with a difficult choice. Is it worth paying for Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, even if you already own it on console? Some of us who upgraded to the PS4 and Xbox One version of the game already own two copies, so why would we buy it a third time this week?
