World of Warcraft's much-anticipated 8.2 patch arrives today

World of Warcraft's enormous 8.2 update, titled Rise of Azshara, is finally here—well, almost. If you've tried logging into WoW this morning, you'll see that the servers are currently down while Blizzard applies the update and they're expected to go live again at 4:00 pm PDT.

It's you versus a giant worm in free sci-fi adventure Fleshworms

Fleshworms. It's a great name for a sci-fi game, if a slightly inaccurate one, as you're only facing one wormy monster here. This is the third entry in Malte Burup's Tales From The Outer Zone series, a bunch of connected, short point and clicks set in a slightly pulpy, vaguely Moebius-y science fiction universe.

Detention, the ruminative Taiwanese horror game by Red Candle Games, is getting a film adaptation, and its set to hit cinemas in Taiwan this September. Set in Taiwan during the 'White Terror' period of martial law, the game is a cryptic and lonely exploration of political dissent and its ramifications, set entirely in an isolated mountainside high school.
