corsair one 1

Corsair One review: Small, fast, and surprisingly quiet

Corsair's first PC build is beautifully engineered, totally liquid cooled, and no fun to wrench on.

Rock Band VR

Rock Band VR review: Rock Band's roaring PC debut showcases Oculus Touch's potential

Rock Band VR drops you in the rhinestone boots of your favorite guitarists and puts the Oculus Touch controllers to a weird, but perfect, use.

Night in the Woods

Night in the Woods review: Small moments and Bruce Springsteen stuff

Night in the Woods is as much a coming-of-age story as it is one of America's lost manufacturing sector and small-town decline. Springsteen would be proud.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Ghost Recon: Wildlands review: 400 square kilometers of emptiness, but it sure is pretty

Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a technological marvel, but that's about it. The rest of Ubisoft's open-world shooter is a repetitive and mind-numbing jumble, particularly if you play on your own. Bring friends, or don't bother.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti review: The monster graphics card 4K gamers have been waiting for

Nvidia's ferocious GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the fastest graphics card ever, and the first capable of uncompromising 4K gaming.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands (PC) impressions: A beautiful, buggy world with no load screens

Ghost Recon: Wildlands offers a big, beautiful world with no load screens and low frame rates. We dig into the game's PC performance.

Torment: Tides of Numenera

Torment: Tides of Numenera review: The Planescape successor you've been waiting for

Despite some failings, Torment: Tides of Numenera is one of the most consistently surprising and delightful RPGs of the last decade.

For Honor

For Honor review: Satisfying melee kneecapped by microtransactions and online woes

For Honor's combat is excellent, but it's dragged down by...well, basically everything else, especially on the multiplayer side of things.

Cerise Circular Computer Full Tower Shot

Cerise Circular review: This Mac Pro wannabe gets sidetracked by gaming

Cerise's Circular computer looks like a Mac Pro but offers a much wider array of options and upgrades. Our unit is really more of a gaming rig than a workstation, though.

Halo Wars 2

Halo Wars 2 review: Spinning its Warthog wheels in a stagnant RTS genre

Littered with microtransactions and featuring the same half-dozen campaign missions you've played since the days of ye ol' StarCraft, Halo Wars 2 is not the RTS genre's salvation.

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens review: New elements give a familiar formula replay value

If you've played Lego games before, you'll get the hang of this one quickly.

Sniper Elite 4

Sniper Elite 4 review: Lofty aims battle grindhouse roots in this ambitious sequel

Still obsessed with exploding organs and a pseudo B-movie vibe, Sniper Elite 4 nevertheless improves upon its predecessor in every way—enormous maps, better stealth systems, and more good ol' American freedom.

Roller Coaster Tycoon Classic review: Amusement park simulator a ton of fun on iOS

For die-hard fans of Roller Coaster Tycoon, the classic has returned. And it’s good.

Quern - Undying Thoughts

Quern - Undying Thoughts review: The closest we may ever come to a Riven sequel

Reminiscent of Cyan's style of storytelling and puzzle design, Quern is an excellent Myst or Riven homage in an era suddenly packed full of them.

Nvidia Shield TV (second generation) review: This the best media streamer for geeks

The Nvidia Shield TV, a $200 media streamer and gaming box, doesn't appeal to everyone, and that's okay.

Minecraft Apple TV Edition review: Block building on the big screen

This big-screen version of Minecraft Pocket Edition is the best reason to date to buy a gamepad for your Apple TV.

Batman - The Telltale Series

Batman - The Telltale Series review: Wayne-ing interest

Hypothesis: The more beloved and well-known the source material, the more disappointing the Telltale adaptation. It's starting to look like a pattern with Batman - The Telltale Series.

Dead RIsing 4

Dead Rising 4 review: Slay ride

Fans of Dead Rising will lament everything this latest Christmas-themed sequel has lost, but it's still a pleasant-enough time for those who want a mindless zombie-killing sandbox.
