Jungle Inferno, the new Team Fortress 2 Update, is here!

I know, I was supposed to do write-ups for each of the days of the Jungle Inferno update, but considering how Team Fortress 2 updates work, with reveals on the first days and the actual event being released on the last day, I didn’t think there would be much point. So day two was all the new campaign stuff, like the old Gun Mettle update but with a twist. Now, rather than ending up with a billion stock weapons with weird (and often ugly) textures on them, completing part of the new campaign grants you a War Paint, that can… [Continue Reading]

HOLY FUCKING BAHRAG AN ACTUAL TF2 UPDATE

I knew this would happen. Just as I’m getting my teeth into an update for one of my favourite games, my other favourite games all get updates and news as well. In this case, while the Plains of Eidolon came out on Thursday 12th, here we are not even a week later with Jungle Inferno, that update we’ve been waiting for. After more than a fucking year. And amazingly, it’s a multi-day update. Something we haven’t seen properly since the Uber Update. Which was back in 2014… no… 2013? Er… A really fucking long time ago. I suppose that’s what… [Continue Reading]

The Plains of Eidolon are Here!

The Plains of Eidolon update has arrived and is available for download for PC players of Warframe. Set on Earth and accessed via the small town of Cetus, the Plains of Eidolon is a whole new way of playing Warframe. No more going back to your ship after every mission! Now you (and any squad of up to four people) can just wander around and do as you please, whether that’s slaughtering Grineer, hunting the local wildlife, mining for rare gems, going fishing or fighting massive adapting monsters which were responsible for both the downfall of the Orokin empire and… [Continue Reading]

Wait, what, Team Fortress 2 turns 10 round about today?

You’re kidding me, right? Team Fortress 2, that silly war-themed hat simulator? That game with the goofy classes and even goofier weapons and cosmetics, is ten years old? Seriously? Well according to Team Fortress 2’s Steam Store page, yes, it is. October 10th, 2007. A whole decade ago. Bloody hell. That’s a pretty long time. Okay, it’s not really that long in the grand scheme of things. After all, I’m twenty five years old at the time of writing. The real TF2 Medic, if he were actually real, would probably be in his 80’s at least. Although the real Medic… [Continue Reading]

Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee free on GOG.com

There’s a free game currently available in GOG’s big sale. There have been a few games for free lately and you should probably go have a look. But today’s free game, available until the end of the 21st, is an odd one. Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee is the free game, and it brings back weird memories. It’s also available on Steam and as a Steam key on Humble Bundle but not DRM free. The story involves an unlikely and rather hideous being who overhears his boss talking about grinding up the Mudoken, his entire species and turning them into the next… [Continue Reading]

Shadow Warrior free on Humble Bundle until July 23rd

Shadow Warrior: Special Edition is currently 100% absolutely free on Humble Bundle for the next day or so, and you can get it here. As well as the base game, you also get the official Shadow Warrior soundtrack, a digital art book and two unique weapons – a Serious Sam 3 sledgehammer and a Hotline Miami katana. It’s a first person shooter and hack-and-slash game with a somewhat loud-mouthed, over-excited protagonist, if the trailer is to be believed. The game appears to have that Serious Sam vibe, with a pinch of Saints Row style over the top gangstas evil corporations,… [Continue Reading]

The Amazon Prime/Twitch Prime Trial is really damn hard to get

Editor’s note: The Twitch Prime offer has been extended multiple times. Unfortunately the extra Frost Prime didn’t make it, he got sold to make room for Nidus. Turned out forma’ing the aura slot wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. There is currently a second offer, giving you a free Soma Prime and Scindo Prime. Also this article is somewhat out of date as Twitch and Amazon have streamlined the free trial process, it now works much better. So there’s some nice Twitch Prime deals right now, accessible via the 7 day Twitch Prime trial. You can get… [Continue Reading]

Killing Floor is Free on Humble Bundle Store Until June 24th

The Co-op scary-mutant-monster-zombie shooting game Killing Floor is currently free on Humble Bundle Store for a limited time – until June 24th!

It requires having a Humble Bundle website account to access, and the game key is sent to your email address and added to your account.

Killing Floor is, at least in my opinion, a cross between… [Continue Reading]

You Can Finally Be Nude in Star Trek Online Again

Warning! Censored images of naked people in this article. Turn back if you’re at work! The nude mod for┬áStar Trek Online can trace its roots all the way back to 2012, when it was originally made by a GVZ user who went by the names meehee and thefunkyone, before his mods went offline due to the home forum shutting down. Lucky for us, somebody shared the file with budding modder Password42, who updated it for the (then) current game. He maintained it until February 2016, when changes to┬áStar Trek Online’s underlying programming made it inherently unstable. Then it went offline,… [Continue Reading]

Outland Free on Steam Until June 8th!

Thanks to MysticTheMeemM for finding this one! Outland is a third-person platformer where the player “uses powers of light and dark in an epic journey to save the world from forces of chaos”, to quote the Steam page. I haven’t played it, I’m actually at work and this article is more of a thought experiment to see if I can successfully write and publish an article entirely from my smart phone during my lunch break. Hope you get your money’s worth! Related posts: Saints Row 2 is Free For One Day! Last Day to get Fractured Space free on Steam!… [Continue Reading]
