REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Portal 2 Authoring Tools Go Live

Some of your creations are really surprising. Like that one level you created in LittleBigPlanet 2. I have a lot of respect for that stuff because I just don't have the patience or know-how for that kind of thing. The closest I've come to generating my own custom-made level for any game was a gigantic ramp I made in Halo: Reach. I wanted to make my mongoose fly. Unfortunately, it, and my spartan, ended up sinking like a rock in Forge World.

Still, I enjoy playing the creations other people have taken the time to craft. Valve does too. That's why their games consistently encourage community support. Portal 2 is no different.

Valve release the authoring tools for Portal 2 today so that individuals with the drive and desire can create their own 3D Portal puzzles. Download the Portal 2 Authoring Tools and you can create single and co-op maps, new character skins, 3D models, sound effects, and music:

Here's what's included:
-Updated version of Hammer, the Source level editor
-Updated Faceposer
-Example maps and instances to help build new maps
-Updated suite of command-line compiling utitlities

As excited as I am to play some of these creations, I can't help but get the feeling that I'm going to have one very specific response to a vast majority of them:

"You monster."
