Even better, the studio has announced that all Kickstarter backers of the sci-fi sandbox will be granted alpha access by the end of this year. Alpha 1 is scheduled to...

The Daily Grind: Is ‘god mode’ fun for MMO play?

Unlike some console and PC titles, online RPGs don’t typically offer “god mode” (despite what you may have heard about certain classes).

Grand Theft Auto Online players are already nervous about a datamined vehicle

It might seem a bit odd that Grand Theft Auto Online’s playerbase is up in arms about the Oppressor Mk. II because the jet bike is not actually in the game at the moment. It’s been datamined, but you cannot actually jump onto the bike right now. But that doesn’t change people being nervous, and for somewhat good cause; the...

Dauntless throws its grenades to players

Grenades are a time-honored way of reaching out and touching everyone within a given area of effect, because… well, that’s how they work. They blow up and they hurt everyone in a compact area.
