The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

On Tuesday, you’ll be able to jump in-game and fool around in a slew of 4-player party mode activities. Take a gander at the trailer below.

Wotcha, Cherry Hogs: Watch Dogs drops London hint

When they kick at your front door, how you gonna come? With your hands on your head or tapping on your phone? Think on that, as Ubisoft are hinting that the future of Watch Dogs may have an interest in (ohh-oh!) London's Brixton. The latest Watch Dogs 2 [official site] update expanded the ending cutscene with a recording of a conversation stating that hacktivist cells…

Steam Charts: From France to San Francisco

Alec is away this week, following the Vengaboys around on tour. Or, if they're not currently touring, just visiting places they've been, taking photos and placing them inside his scrapbook alongside some brief reflections. That means it falls to me to tell you which ten games were the best selling on Steam in the past week, and there are some pleasant games inside.

Steam Charts: And we all sing along like before

Had a week off. (No, not a holiday, no such thing when there's a three-year-old in the house). Bit of a break from writing about games. Though I'd rebuild and resupply a little, come back fighting fit, ready for anything GAMESWORLD might throw at me next. Anything but this.

Can you hack it, fellow kids? Watch Dogs 2 is out on PC

Watch Dogs 2 [official site] is out now on PC, two weeks after our best friends in Console Town got their hands on it. The delay wasn’t surprising coming from Ubisoft, who like to make us wait before letting us clean up all the icons they’ve spilled onto a new map. They said it was to make sure the game “runs smoothly across a broad…

Respect the Gibson: Watch Dogs 2 shows off PC pretties

The PC launch of Watch Dogs 2 [official site] next week might be a fortnight after its console debut but hey, at least our version of the open-world Hackers homage has extra pretties. Ubisoft have gabbed about these before and now show them off in a trailer. Sunlight light up the fog rolling across the bay really is quite something ("ray-marched volumetric fog", if you…

Steam Charts: Just Gotta Ride It

Well, this really isn't the chart I'd expected to see at this point of the year. We're in peak Silly Season, and yet last week's 10 best-selling games on Steam form a broadly unexpected bunch. Which is exactly what I like to see.

Watch Dogs 2 easter egg shows space game’s E3 trailer

In Watch Underscore Dogs, you could watch all sorts of grim scenes by hacking into networks. You might see a recently-released convict hold a gun to his face and contemplate suicide, or a divorced single father wank to porn while his baby bawls in another room then mutter "Shoulda washed my hands" when he goes to comfort the bairn. Ha-ha-hilarious! You wacky dudes, Ubisoft. In…

Watch Dogs 2 Launch Trailer Ready To Hack The Planet

No one believes me when I say I adore the style of Watch Dogs 2 [official site]. They tell me the open-world crime simulator is trying far too hard to be cool, that it's nothing at all like real hacking or real hacker culture, that it barely knows what a computer even is, that the memes it blasts are woefully outdated, that it looks like…

Watch Dogs 2 PC-O-Rama: A Delay, But Fancy Features

As is customary with their all-singing, all-dancing, all-icon-collecting megagames, Ubisoft have delayed the PC version of Watch Dogs 2 [official site]. While the Hackers reboot's console launch will go ahead on November 15th, the Windows release is now due on November 29th. Ubi want to polish it up so it doesn't suck on PC at launch, see. On the bright side, it does sound like…

Watch Dogs 2 Gameplay Vid Takes Us Shopping

When Ubi announced Watch Dogs 2 [official site] at E3, they promised a lot more hacktivist goodness as we assumed the role of Marcus Holloway, a Dedsec member set on sticking it to The Man with the help of his smart phone and legions of social media followers. Ubisoft's Colin Graham walked us through 20 minutes of Watch Dogs 2 gameplay this week, giving us…

Watch Dogs 2’s E3 Gameplay Trailer Is Good Silly Fun

Watch Dogs 2 [official site] looks like a modern-day video game reboot of the seminal Hackers and I can't tell you how much I'm into that. Cocky young punks and ruffians free-running wild and listening to banging tunes while they stick it to The Man is right up my cyberstreet. It's so over-the-top and that is why I adore it. It can't be serious, can…

Not simply fun-to-play fun, but actually having a sense of a fun, with colours and people who look like they're having fun and no moody uncledads anywhere in sight. Here, jack…

Ubisoft To Launch “New AAA IP” Before March 2017

It was Ubisoft's turn yesterday to report to their investors, and they laid out their release plans between now and March 2017. Those plans include the arrival of four games we know about - Watch_Dogs 2, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, For Honor - and, perhaps more excitingly, one we do not. That new game won't be a sequel but a…

Watch This Space: Watch Dogs 2 May Be In The Works

In news that surprises exactly no one, a sequel to Watch Dogs [official website] appears to be in the works. This comes according to some poor guy's LinkedIn page that's been sniffed out by VideoGamer.com. Julien Risse is a senior gameplay designer at Ubisoft, whose past credits include the original Watch Dogs and its DLC Bad Blood, but the stand out oddity is his mention…
