Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The 50 best FPS on PC

The best shooters endure. While the state of the art moves on in other genres and leaves old designs in the dust, it's as fun to fire a well-made shotgun from an early 90s FPS as from one released today. For that reason, this list runs the gamut from genre classics to those released in the last year. There's bound to be something for you…

Feature: Reflections on Flight Sim World's mayfly-brief existence

The Flare Path: From Early Access to Early Grave

Having spent around eight months in Early Access and then three in a mysterious state called “Phase 2”, Flight Sim World, Dovetail Games' modernised-but-feature-trimmed-and-unfinished version of Microsoft Flight Simulator, is officially dead. On Monday, out of the blue, DTG announced that work on the project has come to an end. Apparently, there simply weren't enough customers to justify continuing. As the team assembled by the…

Day of Infamy calls for backup with free weekend

EXT. OMAHA BEACH, JUNE 6 1944 There’s blood on the beach. Artillery shells launch explosive geysers of sand and salt water into the air. Soldiers storm the shoreline, throwing themselves at the enemy. A harried CAPTAIN runs through the chaos and throws himself into a blackened crater. CAPTAIN: Radio! RADIO! Where the hell is my god damned radio!? An eager soldier appears at the crest…

Day of Infamy adds two free maps, including Dunkirk

You might have heard that a little film called Dunkirk has just come out. The folk at New World Interactive certainly have: they've updated their hardcore WW2 shooter Day of Infamy [official site] with two new maps, one of which is – you guessed it – the beaches of Dunkirk. The Dunkirk map fights from the fields, through the streets, and to the beach. The other new…

Bonza! Day of Infamy adds Black Panthers and Aussies

Yeah yeah, Call of Duty is returning to World War 2 but Day of Infamy [official site] is already there.

Feature: "War is a fun hell"

Call of Duty is unlikely to get WWII “right”

“Those who do not learn from from history, are doomed to make another World War II videogame.” A famous saying, and one we all know well. So when Activision hosted a live presentation for the reveal trailer of their latest shooter, Call of Duty: WWII [official site], I watched and felt nothing but a tired wave of low-burning resentment for everyone involved. During this presentation…

Day of Infamy shoots its way out of early access

“Infamy! Infamy! They’ve all got it infamy!” is one of the best jokes of all time. It is also what I screamed as I was repeatedly gunned down in World War II shooter Day of Infamy [official site] while playing the early access version. Fans of murdering me from afar with a scoped rifle will rejoice that the game has just now busted out into…

That's the word this week from developers New World Interactive. Our Brendan Prematurely Evaluated Day of Infamy in August 2016 and had a gay old time capturing points, shooting faces, relaying messages by radio, and, accidentally calling artillery barrages down…

Feature: Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it Infamy!

Premature Evaluation: Day of Infamy

Every Monday, Brendan heads to the frontlines of early access and writes about his heroic battles there. This week, he repeatedly fires upon his own team in multiplayer shooter Day of Infamy. In an age of Overwatches and hyper-CoDs it’s easy to forget that every first-person shooter was once set inside a single trench of World War II. Returning to this battlefield might seem like…
