Five in-game cults that are a far cry from Far Cry 5

Cults in games have a long, proud tradition of getting to go full wackadoo. Mostly, they're a really nice device to lean on, especially in a game where you want to fill the world with collectibles and audio logs and you need some narrative to build that space. Also, they're pretty easy in that, if you don't give a flip about collectibles, you can generally…

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about.

Corny: Outlast 2 Delayed Into 2017

Ah, the early tensies! Cast your mind back to an era when a Slender Man lurked in every corner, crazed diary entries littered the streets, and Nicola Roberts was making a real go of a solo career.

Boo! Outlast 2 Announced For 2016

Outlast was one of the first shiny-polished horror games to rise from the growing trend for first-person unarmed spooky walkers in 2013. It was pretty good, Ben said when we gave him a pair of extra-strong pants and sent him into a spooky asylum. Developers Red Barrels today announced a second round of spookings for autumn 2016, though it looks like Outlast 2 [official site]…
