Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC hasn't improved much in 2019. Despite there being more HDR gaming monitors than ever before, the very [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR continue to be quite expensive compared to non-HDR monitors, and the situation around Windows 10 support for it is still a bit of a mess. However, provided you're willing to fight through all that, then the next step on your…

Feature: In honour of His Souliness

The 10 best games like Dark Souls

Sorry, definition nerds. “Soulslike” is a word now. Disgusting, I know, but this is how genres are made. Along comes a giant like Dark Souls that everybody won’t stop bleating about and soon it has copycats. Before you know it, a swarm of like-minded games with sparse checkpoints and lethal attacks are scuttling around, leaving slime trails and biting your ankles for surprisingly massive damage.…

Steam Charts: Do As You’re Told Edition

Hi, it's me! Yeah! No, nothing's wrong, all's good. I was just calling to see if you wanted some Steam Charts? ... STEAM CHARTS ... Yeah, that's right. No, no it's not. You don't? Oh, um, I already sent them over.

Sekiro’s new Boss Rush mod lets you scrap with any boss, any time

A new mod for From Software's slasher lets you cut straight to the point. Swords, yeah? I haven't gotten around to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice myself (it's the lack of a fashion endgame, I'm afraid). But I'm told it has some absolutely killer fights, what with all those stylish parries and flying head kicks. The sort of combat I imagine you'd want to just dive…

Feature: Our favourites thus far

The best games of 2019 so far

Summer. The heat age. Scorch season. Spring's hangover. It's the mid-point of the year and you know what that means. No, not "mojito time", Geoff, put those away. It's time we told you what the best games of the year are so far. There are quite a lot of them. Just look how many videogames have escaped from their developers in the past six months…

Feature: Running it into the ground

Steam Charts: Got The Runs Edition

Yes, yes, it's me. I know, I know, but calm down. While it's obviously very exciting to have a celebrity as handsome and excellent as me writing you some Steam Charts, I'm still just a regular ordinary guy underneath it all. I leap into my trousers both legs at once, same as anyone else.

Steam Charts: Summer Sale Silliness sEdition

If there's one thing that's guaranteed to sweep through the Steam Charts like a giant fart, it's a Steam Sale. Blowing out all the fresh, original or interesting new releases, the mid-year discount warehouse (Junction 45 off the M91) ensures it's a top 10 of games you already bought or decided you don't want to buy. So who is buying them? Baddies. You lot are…

Feature: Big fish tales

The Japanese myths and woodblock art behind Sekiro’s creatures

Fantastic creatures are as important to Sekiro as its samurai and shinobi. For every deftly fought duel against a venerable warrior there’s a slug-fest with a headless ape that hurls toxic poo. It’s a fine balance between the real and the romantic. Whereas Dark Souls had everything to do with “lore”, Sekiro more delicately pulls from folklore. Lordran is almost purely imaginative, but Sekiro’s Ashina…

Sekiro 1.04 patch notes – what was introduced in the latest update

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice's  significant update didn't quite go to plan, but the latest hot-fix has amended this error. It is the only change to come in the latest update, but the previous version had some major adjustments to balance - mostly in your favour, and some bug fixes. As a result, some of your abilities are far more powerful as a result of the…

Steam Charts: Blood From A Four-Year-Old Edition

OK, two things on the agenda. Firstly, I'm heading off on my expedition to attempt to break the Curse Of Steam Charts for the next couple of weeks. I'm returning to Ursidae, Caniformia, to find that ancient temple once more and attempt to appease the enraged spirit of Horace. Hopefully we'll never speak again! Secondly, Toby's back! This week's Steam Charts are brought to you…

Sekiro ending – getting all of Sekiro’s endings

Since Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has multiple endings, and in typical From Software fashion, there are a couple of points of no return that lock you into certain endings. If you do not want to see what the ending are for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, do not read on as this will give spoilers on how to achieve each ending. You have been warned. [block id="663105"…

Sekiro mask locations – treasure carp locations

It's no secret that you can hunt the fish for treasure carp scales, but there is an item that's found at various vendors that upon completing them will give you the ability to upgrade your attack power with just skill points.

Sekiro Owl (Father) – how to find and defeat the hidden boss

Through some rather specific things you need to do in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, you can unlock a secret boss fight. Though you may have overcome Owl in the present, you've not fought against him while he's in his prime, in the flaming room where you fought Lady Butterfly much earlier in the game.

Sekiro tames the Blazing Bull, pumps up that arm

A wee Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice patch crept in overnight, coming to fix a few bugs and also rejiggle balance a bit. One early-game roadblock boss for some, the Blazing Bull, is a touch weaker. Certain roboarm weapons are improved with new Spirit Emblem casting costs too, though some skills are toned down. If you've got stuck in a ninjarut, relying on the same ol'…

Sekiro gourd seeds – gourd seed locations, upgrading the healing gourd

That healing gourd in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice initially doesn't heal for much does it? Well you can upgrade your gourd by finding seeds in the world. On top of that, Sekiro also has a couple of different gourds that can help with certain status ailments.

Overthinking Games: an armful of surprises in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

While I was playing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, I thought out loud, “Man, do I have a lot of questions about surgery in feudal Japan.” Less about how you operate on a man so that he wakes up and suddenly finds himself with a prosthetic, having remained peacefully unconscious throughout the entire procedure, and more about how feasible the shinobi prosthetic in Sekiro really is.…
