It's time to go into space for this week's Chatty Twitch Highlights. Mercfox1 is ready to launch a rocket in Kerbal Space Program. It goes as well as you'd expect... and that's to say, not well at all. That's followed up with some community Chatty activity on Dota 2, along with the weekly...

Welcome to Joystiq Weekly, a "too long; didn't read" of each week's biggest stories, reviews and original content. Each category's top story is introduced with a reactionary gif, because moving pictures aren't just for The Daily Prophet. It seems like there are two brands of Trials riders - those...

The Best Free Games of the Week PG 08:00AM PDT Apr 19, 2014
Some guy once said that the only certainties in life are death, taxes, the endless geyser of internet anger, and good games that happen to be free. I can't do much about the first three (sorry), but I've cherry-picked the best of the last one and stuffed them into this here weekly column for your...
Vita-owning JRPG fans, no need to eat your heart out: Namco's Tales of Hearts R is coming to the West this winter. The game, which is a remake of Tales of Hearts for the Nintendo DS featuring new content, was originally released in Japan in March of last year.
The Long Dark's creative director reckons the apocalypse doesn't have to feature zombies - but, erm, here's one more open world post-apocalyptic game that does.

It's New Tex Murphy Week next week, and I'll be honest, I'm excited. (Though I haven't played it yet, so I'm only hoping it doesn't suck.) As well as being a big fan of the original interactive movies... though less so the adventures that spawned them... I've always had a bit of a soft spot for FMV.
Virtual golfers looking for an alternative to EA's simulation franchise can now take a swing at The Golf Club, a new golf game from developer HB Studios that just hit Steam Early Access. Though HB warns would-be players that The Golf Club is not yet complete - a caveat that should be attached to...

A brilliant—but troubled—philosopher once said, "Without music, life would be a mistake." In gaming, music is often the only familiar companion on a journey to strange places and new worlds. With that in mind, it's surely a good omen that developer Obsidian has given us a chance to preview the...
Trials Fusion review: ride along SN 05:45PM PDT Apr 18, 2014
