PUBG weapons: damage and weapon stats, best weapons list, including G36C, Skorpion, and more

Keeping track of the vast array of guns in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is one of the largest contributors to the game's steep learning curve. PUBG features nearly forty guns to choose from, each with specific stats relating to damage, range, recoil, bullet drop, and much more - and that's not even considering the enormous range of attachments you can use to augment all those weapons. In…

Steam Charts: The tail of the Winter Sale

Ho ho ho! John still hasn't returned after Christmas, missing presumed drowned in egg nog, so I'm filling in today. Valve have already blarbed about 2018's best-selling games so we're back on the weekly charts. Last week's top ten was largely familiar, though catching the tail end of the Steam Winter Sale has introduced a few surprises.

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds guide: tips and tricks to win in PUBG

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds still dominates Steam to this day. With the latest map Vikendi, it still draws in the crowds, much to John's chagrin. It now has four maps, and an expanded weapon set that's got a lot of nuance to it. While its overall popularity may be waning a little in light of some very stiff competition, it isn't a surprise that the game itself…

PUBG Erangel: where to loot, how to win

For some, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds's Erangel is still the best map in the game. Maybe it's because it's the one they're most used to, or perhaps Miramar is too big, Sanhok is too small, and Vikendi is too snowy. If you're diving into PUBG for the first time, then this is probably the best map to start out in. Erangel's Russian inspired island is full of…

PUBG Miramar: the best places to drop, how to not die

In Playerunknown's Battlegrounds' Miramar, the unforgiving desert is made worse by one thing: up to 100 people are dumped out of an airplane to fight to the death. Perhaps you are one of the unlucky ones that must try to survive in this wasteland? Our PUBG Miramar guide will show you some of the best places to drop in order to obtain the best loot, but…

It shall be a white Christmas in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds this year, as the snowy new map Vikendi has launched on the main client. It's a mid-size map, 6x6km, with exciting spots including a cosmodrome, castle, and dinosaur park.

PUBG Sanhok map: best places for loot, where to drop

Sanhok is the tiniest map in Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. As a result, it's a very different experience compared to the other maps in the game. That said, it's still a deserted island location where death is a constant peril. Therefore Sanhok is far deadlier in many ways, as deep within the lush jungles, ancient ruins, and the extensive river system, there's plenty of places for others…

Feature: How a Japanese comic gave birth to a video game genre

How Battle Royale went from a manga to a Fortnite game mode

When you hear the words “battle royale”, most people in 2018 immediately think of the trigger-happy Plunkbat or the cheery Fortnite. But a decade ago, those same words only evoked bleak battles between crying teens, fought on the black-and-white pages of a manga -- a Japanese comic. Art doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Creators absorb ideas and translate them to different mediums, in a web…

Steam Charts: I Was On Holiday Last Week Edition

I, Alice Bee, have returned from a week off and everything has changed. Matt is in the office now, and complained about having to get up at 8.15am.

Several video games industry associations have reacted to the news that the USA's Federal Trade Commission (FTC) are planning to investigate loot boxes over concerns about potential impact on children. America's Entertainment Software Association (ESA), whose duties include running the E3 games show, have repeated their stance that loot boxes "can enhance the experience" and aren't gambling and they're fine okay just leave it.

Hello! This week John is doing a super secret special mission (playing a video game) so I, one of the other Alices, have taken over the Steam Charts. I am afraid that I do not put as much time as John into constructing elegant jokes that are several layers deep, though, which means you might even be able to tell which games are charting. I…
