Yes, Gamers, it is that time of year again—time for the Steam Winter Sale, which becomes more of a normal seasonal sale and less of a gamified mess with every year that passes (for better and for worse). 2021 was a pretty great, albeit odd, year for video games, so I wanted to bring that strange, messy energy into my end-of-year recommendations. Without further ado, here are some games to check out as part of Steam’s massive Winter Sale:

Risk of Rain 2

Risk of Rain 2 is one of the most video game-ass video games there has ever been. In it, you are one of almost a dozen little guys and you run around defeating enemies and collecting items to make yourself stronger. There are a lot of enemies, and many more items. You will become an ascendant aspect of Death, you will kill the King of Nothing, you will be crushed by a planet time and time again until you manage to barely claw your way out. Easily one of the best roguelites of the last few years, the game is about to receive its first expansion in early 2022 so now is the perfect time to hop on.

One of the matchups, on paper, should be better than the other, but both games will feature high-profile stars, including Aaron Rodgers, the league’s reigning most valuable player, as well as Davante Adams, Kyler Murray, Myles Garrett and Jonathan Taylor.

Below is everything you need to know about the N.F.L.’…….


Warhammer 40,000 Finds New Fans During Pandemic Gaming Boom – The New York Times

Looks like it’s time to break out the games again. Though, if you’re one of thousands of people around the world who play Warhammer, you probably never put it away in the first place.

Warhammer 40,000, a tabletop game set in a dystopian fictional universe, is not new. But a pandemic-fueled frenzy for science fiction and fantasy games like Dungeons & Dragons has introduced it to a whole new group of players.

Often referred to as Warhammer 40k, the game is played on tabletop terrains with models that players assemble, modify and paint. The game itself requires a lot of arithmetic, as well…….
