The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Conan Exiles thrives in the wastes and continues to grow

Crom would be pleased to see a game as scrappy as Conan Exiles doing so well. Developer/publisher Funcom declared today that the barbarian fantasy survival sandbox is their fastest-selling game to date, now having shifted 1.4 million copies in total. The studio aren't resting on their laurels either, announcing some new Roman-themed cosmetic DLC, along with reiterating their promise of major free updates to the…

Feature: Actually ten games!

Steam Charts: A New Hope Edition

Please sit down. Make sure you have a friend with you, or available on the telephone. Plunkbat isn't at number one. Somehow, it's something even more boring. But the rest of the charts are a splendid sight! No GTA, no CS:GO, no Witcher 3, no Skyrim!

Steam Charts: Flipping Great Edition

A pleasingly fresh collection of games dominating the top ten Steam moneymakers this week, along with the shock absence of Counter-Strike: GO! No shocks at the #1 spot, but a couple of surprising appearances in the top 5.

Steam Charts: surviving eternity

Hallo! John's away so I'm taking over for our latest weekly rundown of the biggest-selling games on Steam over the previous seven days. Familiar faces are here, of course, but the charts also include more survival games than I've seen in yonks. The slightest peek of sun outside and you lot start acting as if it's the end of the world, eh?

Conan Exiles slashes out of early access

Fantasy sandbox survive 'em up Conan Exiles left early access and launched properly yesterday, and evidently it proved more popular than developers Funcom had anticipated. With the game peaking at almost 29,000 concurrent players yesterday and official servers filling up, Funcom hastily launched extra servers - and it sounds like more might still be needed. Turns out, people quite like the idea of building settlements,…

Improved performance, server wipes, price hikes when Conan Exiles exits early access next month

Open-world survival affair/one-eyed trouser-snake simulator Conan Exiles has spent over a year in early access, initially hitting it big thanks to a combination of brutal low-fantasy setting and a whole lot of hullabaloo about winkies. Its full release is almost upon us - 14 months is a pretty brisk turnaround as these things go, especially given that devs Funcom reckon the game's doubled in size…

These are the top 100 Steam games of 2017

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games. But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol' breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months. Below is the full, hundred-strong…

Frost giants and snow storms in Conan Exiles new region

Early access survival game Conan Exiles [official site] added a new chilly region called the Frozen North this week. It brings with it new weather types including rain and snow, alongside a temperature system that will affect the whole game: you'll have to wrap up warm in the new area and strip off in the game's desserts. There's shiny weapons to swing at new beasts, including wolves, bears, frost giants and…

Steam Charts: Conangratulations

'Til all are one, it's only the weekly Steam charts! These are the ten games which sold best on Steam last week. It's one of those 'just copied and pasted all the HTML from last week' kind of weeks. This is GOOD because I am lazy but BAD because there is little new to say. Fortunately, I've brought a friend along with me this time.

What is best in life? Conan Exiles launches mod support

Mod support has arrived in Conan Exiles [official site], letting players futz with the guts of Funcom's craft-o-survival game. A few hiccups aside, the developers seem pretty pleased with the launch, announcing that the game sold over 320,000 copies in its first week on Steam Early Access. That's enough sales that "all development costs have been recouped", they say. Goodness me!

Conan Exiles war on lag continues

Conan Exiles [official site] developers Funcom have temporarily shut down the game's official multiplayer servers while they switch to a new host. The majority of servers for the early access survival sandbox game are unofficial player-run ones, mind, but perhaps you're a good little warchild who sticks to the playground and never jumps the fence to play in the woods. This switch is part of…

Three laggy hours with Conan Exi ConCona Conan Exiles

Oh, Early Access! Sorry, just stubbed my toe. Yes, it's certainly worked in places, but goodness me if it isn't sometimes the most infuriating way of releasing barely functioning games for a fee. Time was it cost a developer lots of money to have their game concepts tested and QAd - now they charge £27 for the privilege. That's how much it'll cost you to…

What is best in life? Conan Exiles will support mods

Funcom today announced that their craft-o-build-a-murder-e-survival sandbox Conan Exiles [official site] will support mods with official tools. They should be available right when it hits Steam Early Access on January 31st, letting folks get right down to fiddling with it. Conan Exiles is looking more polished than a lot of survive 'em ups, on paper/in slick trailers anyway, and mod support is a fine addition.…

Funcom’s Conan Exiles hits early access on January 31st

We're not short on multiplayer open-world survival games but coo 'eck, I can't think of many with spectacles like Conan Exiles [official site]. Funcom today announced they'll launch their new MOWSG into early access on January 31st, 2017 and celebrated this with a new trailer showing such delights as a metal colossus stomping through a scrappy fort to punch a giant snake in the face.…
