Awesome Games Done Quick raises over $2.25 million for charity

Speedruns themselves can be mind-boggling, but it's the community behind them that interests me the most. There's an infectious joy that comes across in every video that's come out of Awesome Games Done Quick, the annual week-long charity speedrunning event that wrapped up over the weekend. It's an event that provides the triple-whammy of heart warming camaraderie, entertaining speedruns and a whopping $2,269,209.96 so far…

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. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

Resident Evil 7 new DLCs go brawling in the swamp

The unexpectedly good Resident Evil 7 Biohazard has expanded again, last night launching one free new chapter and one paid one. The free bit is Not A Hero, the long-promised chapter starring veteran Resident Evil beefman Chris Redfield. That one is fairly action-focused, as you might expect, though it's not a pure blastfest. The new paid expansion is End of Zoe, playing as another Baker…

Humble’s Fall Sale is now on, featuring literally thousands of games

Ahead of what can only possibly be the impending financial doom of us all - Black Friday 2017 - Humble has launched its Fall Sale. It's a fairly big sale range, too, featuring thousands of games with discounts on a selection from a varied selection of publishers. That includes Capcom, Focus Home Interactive, Rebellion, Konami, Rockstar, Adult Swim, THQ Nordic and many more.

Resi 7 bids fond farewell with duelling DLCs

While tallying up which still-to-come games I want to shovel into my mind-hole before 2017 shrivels up and dies, I reckoned the last remaining DLC for Resident Evil 7 would be a surefire thing. Resi 7 pushed my buttons, by which I mean it made me feel almost unbearably anxious, and I hoped the long wait between it and this (presumably) final add-on meant it…

Resident Evil 7: Not A Hero shows off face-punching

After years of escalating ludicrousness and ultraviolence, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] was a refreshing change of pace with its creepy spookhouse and hapless hero. But if you have missed burly blokes who work for shadowy organisations and murder their way through monsters with gay abandon, hold on another three months. RE7's free DLC mini-campaign Not A Hero will bring back Chris Redfield, we've…

Resident Evil 7 serves Banned Footage DLCs on PC today

Two ghostloads of new scares arrive in Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] today with the launch of the 'Banned Footage' DLC packs. Each adds a mish-mash of new story bits and modes, from escaping a room while in the watchful care of a cannibal to betting your fingers in a Saw-like game of Blackjack. Awful. These DLC packs have been out on PlayStation 4…

Compucrypts: Resident Evil 7 now supports older CPUs

Resident Evil 7 [official site] is a spooky-ooky good time, our Adam will tell you, but some would-be players suffered a f-f-fearul f-f-f-fright discovering their CPU was unexpectedly unable to run it. Good news, oldboxers! If your PC creaks like a spookhouse, crawling with cobwebs and powered by a CPU which doesn't support SSSE3 SIMD, you can now (potentially) play RE7 as Capcom have released…

Resident Evil 7 shows off DLC scares

While Resident Evil 7 [official site] DLC has started creeping onto PlayStations, sadly we need to wait for a few weeks because of some lousy exclusivity deal ('sadly' because RE7 is great, yeah?). But as we've not mentioned the DLC before and it's out in the wild, rustling through the trees and rattling doorknobs, now seems a good time to have a gander at what's…

Resident Evil 7 demo now spooking PC

The Resident Evil 7 [official site] demo 'Beginning Hour' is now out on PC after six months of haunting consoles. RE7 looks a curious one, ostensibly returning to the series' roots in spooky mansions but with hillbilly horror and an Amnesia-ish, PT-y first-person style. Most of what Capcom have shown so far is set inside one derelict spookhouse, and now we can visit that place…

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard footage returns to domesticity

I've been avidly following the development of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard [official site], though I must say it's not been without some trepidation. Resident Evil 6 did so much to destroy the image of Capcom's venerable series I feared it may not be able to make a comeback. Fortunately, the team behind Resident Evil 7: Biohazard seems to realize that the only way to go…

Inventory Tetris, Shotguns, Phones: Resident Evil 7

I keep forgetting that Resident Evil 7 [official site] is coming out as early as January. It feels like one of those games that I should have been looking forward to for a couple of years by the time it's finally released, but the hype train has only just left the station, and hasn't had time to derail or run out of steam. That's perhaps…

Meet The Bakers: Resident Evil 7

The more I learn about Resident Evil 7 [official site], the less it sounds like a Resident Evil game. Sure, there will apparently be medicinal herbs and some kind of inventory management, and there will probably be puzzles involving coins or crystals standing in for keys, but the grimy first-person horrors of the demo do seem to be representative of the full game. As details…

Resident Evil 7 Teases More First-Person VHS Horror

Capcom have released some more “found footage” from the upcoming Resident Evil 7 [official site]. Their foray into first-person frights has seen a lot of comparisons to P.T. and with good reason. But this is a loyal sequel, the developers insist, or at least a story contained within the familiar universe of zombifying viruses, parasites and corporate nastymen. Come and see it after the jump.

Resident Evil 7 Goes First-Person, Out January 2017

"Capcom has heard fans’ masochistic cries for a Resident Evil game far more terrifying than anything that has come before it," said the publisher shortly after revealing Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] during Sony's E3 press conference yesterday. In what is a pretty radical step for the series, it seems this one's fully first-person and "draws from the series’ roots of atmospheric survival horror,"…
