Though I can see how this comparison has been reached — two teams go head-to-head in a small arena with a neon-infused aesthetic — Laser League is quite unlike any multiplayer game currently available. Looking like something Jeff Bridges would've encountered in Tron, Roll7's futuristic sports game is nearly as addictive as car soccer, though a whole lot more inventive.

After a false start last year, the company is ready to offer pre-orders through the crowdfunding website IndieGoGo on May 30. The VCS isn’t just a box for playing old Atari games.

At the time, Atari CEO Fred Chesnais — who is also Atari’s largest shareholder — crowed that his organization was back in the hardware business. But the effort hit an unspecified snag in mid-December and the launch of the IndieGoGo … [Read more...] about Atari is crowdfunding a new console, but who is this device actually for?

First, a Message from Emily Greer, Co-Founder and CEO of Kongregate It hasn’t been long since our last big announcement, but we’re ready to share more exciting news: Kongregate is creating a new community-driven, developer-centric PC platform -- Kartridge.

It was easy enough to get into the Sea of Thieves scale tests, but you don't even need to futz with the Xbox Insider program to play this one: just go to Xbox or Windows 10 store, search for "Sea of Thieves Final Beta" (if that doesn't work, try the old "Sea of Thieves Closed Beta" entry), install, and start playing! Get your voyage underway soon, because Rare will drop anchor and end the beta on Sunday, March 11 at 3am PDT / 10am GMT for some last-minute repairs. Here are four things you ought to try before then. Journey for the Merchant Alliance Finally the Gold Hoarders have some competition for our cheap pirate labor.
