The Stanley Parable Announcer Pack adds dry British humour to Dota 2

The Stanley Parable Announcer Pack adds dry British humour to Dota 2

"This is the story of a man named Stanley. Stanley worked for a company in a big building where he was Employee #427. Employee #427's job was simple: he sat at his desk in Room 427 and he played Dota 2 every day of every month of every year."

Wait, that's not how that story goes. There's certainly no "Dota 2" in The Stanley Parable. But Dota 2 is getting a dose of The Stanley Parable now that the latter game's popular British-accented Narrator has been included in the latest Dota 2 Announcer Pack.

Unreal Tournament returns as ambitious, fan-driven free first-person shooter

It's been ages since the gaming community has seen any new content revolving around the Unreal Tournament franchise. But, today, Epic Games made good on its promise to spill the beans on a new project in the series. One that will focus just as much on being a tried-and-true first-person shooting experience as much as it will on being a devoted project where fans have some say.

Battleblock Theater releases on PC & Linux on May 15

Battleblock Theater releases on PC & Linux on May 15

The Behemoth's long-awaited follow-up to Castle Crashers was BattleBlock Theater--a game that our review says "may have bitten off more than it can comfortably chew." Still, the ambitious platformer is large enough that players can "enjoy its likable, zany sensibilities throughout." After a beta test on PC two months ago, the studio has announced the Steam version will be available to purchase on May 15th.

Project CARS video compares the game to real life (and wins)

Project CARS video compares the game to real life (and wins)

Perhaps the biggest selling point of Slightly Mad Studios' crowdfunded racing game Project CARS is the graphics. We're not entirely sure what kind of voodoo magic is responsible for these visuals, but they're unquestionably impressive.

A new video (via Kotaku) pits the game against real life, with BMW cars racing a lap at Laguna Seca in the real and virtual worlds. The game is set to "Ultra" graphics on a Radeon HD 7850 OC with a Logitech G27 steering wheel. And which version reigns supreme? Unfortunately for reality, we'd say the game wins. It doesn't look as worn down as the real-world counterpart.

The Last Tinker: City of Colors brings classic 3D platforming to PC on May 12

Remember when games like Banjo-Kazooie were pretty much all you could find at GameStop? The 3D platformer has waned in popularity since, but that isn't stopping Mimimi Productions and Unity Games from making a classically-styled 3D platforming game of their own. The Last Tinker: City of Colors has players controlling Koru, a cheerful and acrobatic boy, who must return color to the aptly-named world of Colortown.
