Steam Summer Sale recommendations: 2018 edition!

The old quote is wrong: neither death nor taxes are, it seems to me, as terrifyingly certain as the Steam Summer Sale. Yes, once more we can add to the heap that is our backlog by buying games for, what, five quid, on average? But there are so many to choose from that it's easy to get flustered, so who better than the staff of…

Have You Played… Deus Ex: Mankind Divided?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. It feels as if game developers have spent the past ten years learning how to efficiently build the design ideas conceived in the ten years before that. As a result, where the original Deus Ex's commitment to systemic design offered player's options which surprised, Deus Ex…

Deus Ex is “waiting its turn” for a new game

The CEO of Square Enix, Yosuke Matsuda, has spoken out about the future of Deus Ex. At the start of this year, Eurogamer reported that we shouldn't expect a new Deus Ex game anytime soon - and they're right, though we should get one eventually. It simply isn't Deus Ex's turn yet, with the studio first focusing on other projects such as the next Tomb…

Cyber Monday 2017: The best deals on PC games, graphics cards, monitors, SSDs and more

After a weekend of gorging yourself on turkey and elbowing people in the face to get that last discounted something or other in the shops, now it's time to settle in and continue those deal hunts from the comfort of your own home. For today is Cyber Monday, the day that's reserved for purely online-only deals following the shopping bonanza that was Black Friday. This year, we've done the hard work…

The 42 best Black Friday 2017 deals for PC gamers

Well, that was fun, wasn't it? Black Friday 2017 may have come and gone, but the deals just keep on coming. Many of them, in fact, are still running until Monday November 27th (the delightfully-named Cyber Monday for those fluent in Black Friday parlance), with many more carrying on until the end of the month. We'll be highlighting the best Cyber Monday deals at the…

Black Friday 2017: The best deals on graphics cards, monitors, SSDs and more

The sale event to end all sale events is here. That's right, folks, Black Friday 2017 is here, and this year's sales frenzy is set to be bigger than ever as we head into the Christmas shopping period. In all honesty, they should just rename it Black November, as there have been deals going on throughout the month in preparation for the big day. To save you…

Feature: The casualties of being spoilt for choice

Don’t let this golden age of games end

We are living in a golden age of big-budget PC games that offer us choice and freedom. Be they descendants of the System Shock model - finding a route around a meticulously-crafted, locked-down and hostile place, most recently seen in Prey [official site] - or the roleplaying games based around choice and consequence rather than action alone, they are legion. There are so many, even,…

Deus Ex: Criminal Past DLC sends Jensen to jail

Your mate Adam Jensen is telling a story to his psychologist in the latest DLC for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] – a flashback episode, if you will. He’s telling her all about the time he went undercover in a maximum security prison for augmented people and how that made him feel. But this being Adam, the paranoid wreck with conspiracy theories coming out…

Deus Ex: Breach launches random daily networks

A big Deus Ex: Breach [official site] today is bringing daily runs to the Mankind Divided side-game. Each day, hackers jacking into the datanet will get to run new randomly-generated server networks. The update, the first since Breach launched a free-to-play standalone version, also brings new weapons, items, and maps. Breach may not be my jam but ooh I am a sucker for daily runs;…

Deus Ex launches Breach F2P spin-off, free VR doodad

Two free spin-offs from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] launched today, as its arcade mode Breach has become a free-to-play standalone game and a new virtual reality explore-o-zone is out too. Breach going standalone isn't a huge surprise, as it was already very cheekily monetised with microtransactions, but hey I'll welcome its cybersneaking in virtual virtual reality. And as for actual physical virtual reality,…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s Criminal Past story DLC announced

Adam Jensen is off to the cyberslammer next month in the second story DLC for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site]. Square Enix yesterday announced the 'Criminal Past' DLC, a prequel mission which will send Adman undercover into a prison for robomen. That's why they call it Criminal Past, see: it's set in the past (of the future), and there are criminals. The marketing droids…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s pre-order mission now free

The pre-order virtuaguff of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site], which includes an extra story mission, is now free for all players. A patch on Friday whopped it in. The 'Desperate Measures' mission isn't big but it does poke into that train station bombing which drives a fair chunk of the game so, er, good that it's finally available to everyone. This blob of freebies…

Feature: A Two Year Tradition

The RPG Scrollbars: The Scrolls Of Honour 2016

As mentioned last week, it's been one of those years. Lots of the biggest RPGs that we were expecting decided to spend a few more months in bed, or simply skip 2016. Can't blame them! It'll mean an awesome 2017, even if looking back there's only been a few big names to pick from. Still, tradition is tradition! This week, another year marks another set…

Steam’s Autumn sale has begun – here’s some picks

Aside from starting a new tradition of unusually-named Steam Awards, Valve have also pulled out their worn and adored bargain bucket and have begun to fill it with games you’ll enthusiastically buy and probably never play. Yes, it's their Autumn Sale. In the streets, the apocalyptic jockeying for TVs and blenders has started. The moon has turned blood red. And I looked and behold a…

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Jacks Into Linux

I'm sure Adam Jensen thinks himself a cool cyberpunk sticking it to The Man, with his cyberarm and cybershades and Beppebeard, but he doesn't truly know what it means to hack the planet. We've never even seen him use Linux, let alone rip some sweet nollie flips on his skateboard. You can now show him up. Porting house Feral Interactive today launched the Linux version…

Electric Heart: Deus Ex Story DLC System Rift Released

Surly cyberman Adam Jensen is teaming up with the pop star Sia and some wazzock to rob a data bank. That's the premise of the first Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] story DLC, System Rift, which launched today. A little caper and a bit of banks might even put a smile on his cyberface. Here, check out the launch trailer:

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Jacking Into Linux & Mac

Yeah, yeah I hacked my cyberlegs to run a custom kernel I compile myself. You've got to, you know. The Man fills your legs with all sorts of spyware, you know. Yeah, the 'Aug Incident' and all that but did you know The Man can read your pedometer count, correct your gait for you, and even jack olfaction sensors to tell when you last changed…
