After a year of silence, Ubisoft might finally tell us about its big games

(Image credit: Ubisoft) For a studio with a bunch of major games in the works at all times, Ubisoft sure hasn’t told us much about them over the past year.

DIYer uses tiny screens to bring Lego terminals and human keyboards to life

(Image credit: James Brown) We’ve seen a bunch of cool DIY terminals lately. From this Pi powered Palmtop (opens in new tab) to this retro circular screen machine (opens in new tab). All of these designs are very cute, but this next DIY project has resulted in one of the teensy adorable little terminals I’ve come across. Tech tinkerer

Diablo Immortal is a game designed to exploit your love of Diablo

(Image credit: NetEase / Activision Blizzard) The truth about Diablo Immortal is that it’s a Diablo game for people who pick all the M&Ms out of the trail mix. It’s built around the dopamine that comes from whacking demon piñatas for loot, meticulously designed to give you a jolt of satisfaction every 30 seconds—and th

Among Us officially crosses over with Fortnite

(Image credit: Epic Games/Innersloth) Epic’s decision to add an overtly Among Us-like mode (opens in new tab) to Fortnite last year generated a little bit of friction with Innersloth, developer of the actual Among Us.

Little Witch in the Woods has a talking hat, but doesn’t quite have that Stardew charm

(Image credit: Sunny Side Up) Little Witch in the Woods is exactly what it says on the tin. Ellie, an apprentice witch, is on her way to the city of Highlion to continue training when her train shudders to a halt. The conductor warns that she’s allowed to get off, so long as she returns by morning. Ellie explores the woods and finds an aband

Stray proves that everybody does want to be a cat, actually

(Image credit: BlueTwelve Studio) Cats seldom get the love and respect they deserve in video games, in my opinion. It’s pretty common to be able to pet dogs in games—in fact, there’s a whole Twitter account (opens in new tab) dedicated to it—but our feline friends are often overlooked. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla lets y
