Splitgate: The best plays we’ve seen in the hit shooter

First-person shooter game Splitgate is an absolute blast to play, and nearly as fun to watch. Since it exploded in popularity in July 2021, thousands of players have flocked to it, leading to lots of exciting gameplay clips being shared online. Something about the fast-paced nature of Splitgate makes it mesmerizing to watch, especially when players make good use of the portals. The portal mechanic allows players to traverse the map quickly, while also rewarding them for strategic planning and positioning. Other times, players are simply impressively accurate with their shots, which is just as satisfying to witness.

To show you just how exhilarating Splitgate can be to watch, we’ve rounded up some of the best clips on the internet, including a wide variety of expert plays across the board. From players who specialize in long-range battles, to fantastic uses of portals, and even some calculated rocket shots, these are the best Splitgate plays.

Twitch streamer TagNJake doesn’t need an assault rifle or powerful weapon. A few melees and a handgun do the trick.

Sludge Life is getting a surprising sequel and we’ve already tried it
A character lays passed out on a shipping container in Sludge Life.

Oddball indie Sludge Life is getting a surprise sequel, bringing another installment of the urban open-world game. Sludge Life 2 will launch sometime in 2023 and it seems like the project is already far along. In fact, I already got a chance to play one hour of it.

The original Sludge Life, a collaboration between artist Terri Vellmann and musical artist Doseone (Adam Drucker), launched in 2020. It gained some attention at the time because it was initially offered for free on Epic Games Store for an entire year. While it's not clear if the sequel will take the same approach, the first game is once again free on Steam from March 23 to March 30.

I love Fortnite again thanks to its new chapter’s best change
The Mandalorian with Fortnite's new crystal gun

I find myself taken aback when comparing Fortnite's original 2017 release to what it became in 2022. It's wild to think that substantial, game-altering updates are coming to Fortnite all these years later. As if Zero Build mode wasn't enough change for one year, its most recent changes have completely altered the game in a positive way yet again.

The best live service games of 2022: 10 ongoing games we couldn’t stop playing
A Sea of Thieves skeleton sits in front of text that says 2022 Best Live Service Games.

Some games are meant to be played once, savored, and then shelved for the next one -- not unlike a book or a movie. But many other games are meant to be played and replayed over a long period of time, offering wildly different experiences each time you sit down and boot them up. There were many ongoing games to pick from in 2022, a lot of which include live service elements like online multiplayer, microtransactions, and regular content updates -- though not all are worth investing your time into.

Even though there are plenty of stinkers out there to avoid, there were also several ongoing games that kept our attention in 2022, ranging across several genres. From globe-trotting online roleplaying games to far simpler games you can play at a café bench, here are 10 games that set the bar for live service in 2022.
