The End of Worlds

Concerning the Preservation of Video Games in the Online Age

On December 15th, 2011, humans and aliens alike banded together to celebrate, and mourn, the end of Star Wars: Galaxies. Sony Online Entertainment spread news of the final days and let the dev team go nuts. Fireworks blazed ahead over city scapes while colossal, Game Master controlled monsters battled with heroes in the streets as the final hours ticked down. Longtime fans came together with users who hadn’t touched the game in years to watch the universe crumble. It gave players one final chance to say farewell to the places they loved and friends they’d made in the eight and a half years since release. SoE finally pulled the plug at 12:01, ending Galaxies for good.

Save Churchill from Nazis in Sniper Elite 3 DLC

If you've been playing Sniper Elite 3, you've no doubt seen a fair share of Nazi organs being destroyed in slow-mo. And, let's be honest, if you've gotta watch a bullet liquefy someone's vital organs, it might as well be a Nazi. But how often do you get to covertly waste fascists in the personal defense of Master Politician / Boozehound, Sir Winston Churchill?

My Warface is Steaming Mad

Warface may have been on out the PC for quite some time, in fact, it was released in Russian territories almost two years ago. It ran on a new platform for Crytek called GFace, with a closed beta in EU and NA territories on the PC. Shortly afterwards it was followed by an actual closing of the game as they retooled and rebooted the service. After relaunching, it also found itself on Xbox 360 where it launched as one of the few free to play titles on that console.

The Winching Hour has Arrived

Co-Op Comrades: Two Player Spintires Stream

Sometimes, you come across a game you're not sure how it came to be, but you're glad it happened. In this case, a successful Kickstarter campaign gave us the gift of Spintires. Spintires is a driving game where the primary goal is to not get your vehicle stuck in the mud while trying to brave Russian wetlands and deliver logs. The terrain deformation is just about the best I've ever seen, and trust me, you're going to fall victim to the mud early and often. Luckily, you can winch your way out, or even get a "gentle" push from other players.
