Destiny dancers pull serious lunar shapes in a new music video

Back when Destiny was only on consoles, I knew three things about it: random words are turned into grandiose proper nouns; a wizard came from the moon; and the spacemen love to dance. Now Destiny 2 has come to PC and won me over, I can say yes, I was entirely correct. I am delighted to see a new musical extravaganza from Husky Raid, a…

Previously due on November 22nd, Doom Eternal is now due on March 20th, 2020. Id Software say they want more time to, y'know, make it proper good.

American Truck Simulator is making me fear the terrible dryness of Utah

I am a damp person. I was born by the sea, I was raised by the sea, I live by the sea, I swim in the sea, and if I'm lucky I'll die in the sea. I would describe myself as a bin bag full of sea water. I am still surprised to feel physical discomfort looking at American Truck Simulator's upcoming Utah expansion. One…

Paradox announce Surviving The Aftermath

Living on Mars? Easy. Even that meme idiot might be able to do it. But living on Earth? That's a challenge. Especially if you're not one of the self-important squillionaires planning to piss off to another planet (or Middle-Earth) once we fully ruin Earth. So after offering the easy future in colony-building management sim Surviving Mars, Paradox today announced Surviving The Aftermath. They describe it…

Epic defend Fortnite’s new cross-platform matchmaking

Throwing Fortnite players from all platforms into the same matches was a bold move risking horrible imbalance, yet Epic are still confident their matchmaking will work it out. The idea that someone on PC with keyboard and mouse playing against a person tapping on a pocket telephone or twiddling a diddy Switch is a weird one to me. Epic trust that their matchmaking system will…

Red Dead Redemption 2 riding to PC in November

Well yee my haw and buck my roo, Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to PC. The oh-so-pretty, oh-so-fancy, and oh-so-vapidly-posturing Wild West sandbox shooter hit consoles in October 2018 and I've been expecting it on PC all along because what is this, 2010? No, this is 2019, which means that the release will be staggered across different games stores. The PC debut will be…

I adore Destiny 2: Shadowkeep’s spooky moon guns

Moon's haunted, you've likely heard, and in Destiny 2's Shadowkeep expansion we're sent to bust those ghosts. I adore the tools we wield to do that. A new set of Shadowkeep weapons salvages chunky vintage lunar hardware from the golden age of humanity and purifies it with magic rituals, leaving weapons bristling with magical talismans. These are the guns I need to pop phantoms and…

Disco Elysium devs already have big ideas for a sequel

While the fascinating surreal detective RPG, Disco Elysium should come to a tidy conclusion when it launches this month, developer ZA/UM say that should they get the possibility to make a sequel... well, they have some ideas. Chief among these is the option for a pregnant woman as a second protagonist, which sounds potentially wild in a wordy RPG where your inner thoughts and physical…

Black Mesa ventures deeper into Xen

As the many hapless scientists now wearing wee aliens as hats (and Valve Software themselves) could tell you, one need be careful with Half-Life's alien dimension of Xen. That's why the gang behind sanctioned remake Black Mesa gang have taken their time remaking those much-reviled end-game levels, initially releasing the game without any Xen then getting back to work on it. They've been gradually expanding…

Untitled Goose Game streamer made a goose costume into a controller

To play Untitled Goose Game is to enter the mind of a goose, to feel mischief and malice fill you and flow through you. To enter the body of a goose is quite different, Twitch streamer Dylan "Rudeism" Beck discovered. Famed for his commitment to play games with wrong and weird and custom controllers (he's the lad who panned Mordhau players with a frying pan),…

Destiny 2 dusts off servers after crashing into Moon

Though Destiny 2: Shadowkeep was the first time I'd been playing an MMO around expansion launch time, I knew what to expect last night: surprise; spectacle; excitement; confusion; discovery; server queues; connection troubles; servers going offline; waiting until the next day to play. Reader dear, it delivered on all counts. Following a string of disconnections, sign-in problems, and other datapipe wonk, Bungie took their MMOFPS…
