Planetary Annihilation Launching Sept. 5

The full version of Uber Entertainment's sci-fi RTS game is coming to PC in one week.

By Fraser Brown | PCGamesN Uber Entertainment has decided that the studio’s world-destroying RTS, Planetary Annihilation, is almost ready for launch. In just over a week, on September 5th, the game will leave Early Access behind.  It’s been a good long while since we took a look at the game. In my Planetary Annihilation Early Access review I advised patience, as it was only just getting meat on its lovely bones. But a lot’s changed since then, with the inclusion of Galactic War and the new features introduced in the gamma phase.  We’ll no doubt be taking another look next month, but in the mean time, here’s the launch...

Five Nights at Freddy's Emerges on Mobile

Chuck E. Cheese's meets Night of the Living Dead in this quirky yet terrifying psychologocial horror game now on Android.

By Patrick Shaw | 08-27-2014 | 4:05PM Released earlier this month on PC through Steam Greenlight, Five Nights at Freddy's is an indie first-person horror game that puts players in the role of a watchman working the graveyard shift at fast food establishment called Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. While the game begins innocently enough, things get genuinely disturbing fast when the restaurant's singing attraction, Freddy Fazbear and his band of animatronic animals, literally come to live. To make matters even more unnerving, you have a limited supply of electricity powering your light sources, which makes the interiors of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza all the more horrifying. After Five Nights at Freddy's successful launch...

Shadowrun: Dragonfall Director's Cut Hits Sept. 18

Shadowrun Returns' Dragonfall expansion to be released next month as a standalone game.

By Fraser Brown | PCGamesN While Shadowrun Returns did a lot of things very well, particularly in the writing, it didn’t quite offer the freedom that its tabletop forbearer was known for. Its expansion, Dragonfall - a proper expansion like the ones found in ye olden tymes - made strong moves in that direction though. A big hub to explore, lots of optional quests, a proper cast of party members who don’t mind a bit of a gab - it was quite the improvement.  And now soon you’ll be able to pick it up as a standalone. Shadowrun: Dragonfall Director’s Cut will come with the expansion’s campaign, five new missions and a slew of changes and new features that might...

Mad Catz Unveils Tournament Edition Mouse, Keyboard

Mad Catz announces its new Tournament Edition S.T.R.I.K.E keyboard and M.M.O mouse built for gamers.

By Tyler Lee | Ubergizmo Gaming keyboards and mice are designed to deliver better performance than with regular keyboards and mice, and to a certain extent there is some truth this. Keyboards and mice built for gaming tend to feature more buttons, which gamers can assign with macros. Gaming mice are generally faster and more sensitive, which is particularly important when playing FPS games. If you’re in the market for a new keyboard and mouse, Mad Catz might have something for you as they have recently added some new products to their Tournament Edition range of gaming peripherals. Starting with the keyboard, the Tournament Edition S.T.R.I.K.E keyboard features an aluminum chassis and will sport 109 mechanical keys of...

Tegra K1 Racer Voxel Rush Unleashed

Now available to download for free, Voxel Rush puts player's reflexes to the test in a first-person racing experience where they must avoid colliding with voxel-shaped objects at a breakneck speed. Its addictive gameplay could be described as a fast-paced endless runner, or racer if you prefer, set in a 3D environment that creates the sense of soaring through the Death Star's trenches in the memorable climax of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.  While Voxel Rush features understated graphics, which the developer...
