Void Bastards returns with the Bang Tydy DLC and free challenge modes

Just when I was running out of things to see and spaceships to loot in Void Bastards, developer Blue Manchu drags me back in. The System Shock-inspired shooty roguelike rolled out its first paid DLC yesterday, Bang Tydy, adding a new faction of robotic cleaners to the Sargasso Nebula alongside a generous slab of free goodies.

The latest Fortnite skin asks 'what if 7UP was a person?'

Limelight, the newest Fortnite skin available in the item shop, is here to make you wonder what a can of Sprite or 7UP would look like if it took on human form. To be fair, it looks pretty good. I haven't seen pants this green since allergy season in middle school.

Crying Suns lands in stores, a grim story-driven FTL-like

There are few scenarios in games as inherently doom-laden as being told you're a (mostly) expendable clone. Granted, in Crying Suns—released today from new studio Alt Shift—you're an important clone.

Digital storefronts can pay to use IGDB's API, which is how the database makes money.

Naval battle royale Maelstrom goes free-to-play

Remember Maelstrom, the last-ship-standing game of naval combat that entered Early Access last year? The one where you can be captain of an orc ship pulled by giant sharks, and the shrinking battle-royale circle is a section of Dead Water hiding a colossal sea monster that will just straight-up eat you?

Stadia Founders Edition is almost sold out, so here's the Stadia Premiere Edition

The Stadia Founders Edition, a $129 package that includes Chromecast Ultra, a limited edition Stadia controller, a free three-month subscription of Stadia Pro for you and a friend, and a chance to nail down your Stadia username before everyone else, is apparently selling well. So well, in fact, that Google's director of games Jack Buser told GamesRadar that it's almost sold out across Europe, and North America isn't far behind.
