Steam’s Spring Cleaning Event wants you to clear your backlog… Or just try a bunch of new games instead

I'm not sure if Valve's latest promotional wotsit on Steam knows whether it's coming or going. On one hand, it's nice that the Spring Cleaning Event (running until Monday, 28th May) is nudging players into trying out games they may have bought in sales and never touched, but pairing that with nine simultaneous free weekend events does somewhat undermine the message. Ah well, it's an excuse to…

Digital deals so far this week

Perhaps more ominously, we will also be hurtling towards the litany of PC gaming Black Friday deals that are headed our way in a fortnight's time.

If you've not played the series before, I'll explain that it's basically the teen companion to Pixar's Cars. Can Dirty Denise, Big Barry, Mudflap Mahendra, Tailpipe Tam, and Pete the Puddles win the race, save the day, and discover the true…

Dirt 4 first footage – the arcade/sim sweet spot returns?

I've usually had a lot of time for Codies' racing games, despite only being a car person to the extent that I can replace the fuse for the cigarette lighter if push comes to shove. They tend to comfortably straddle the line between the cheerful anti-physics of arcade driving games and the stony-faced realism of the sim crowd, which is the sweet spot where I…

Dirt 4 rolling out trucks, buggies, and procedural tracks

Codemasters today announced Dirt 4 [official site], a new entry in their racing series coming this June. Dirt 4 will have rally cars racing across track and field, same as ever, while also bringing back vehicles missing from the series for years: buggies and trucks. The option for procedurally-generated tracks is an interesting addition too. 2015's Dirt Rally was good stuff -- "It's like slamming…
