Jumpin’ slidin’ cyberninja Ghostrunner is out now

Dodge. Slide. Slash. Leap. Fall. Die. Repeat. After months of scampering around behind the scenes, acrobatic cyber-slasher Ghostrunner finally lept onto store shelves today. The proper good acrobatic murder ballet arrives with a 20% launch discount and a free demo - should you wish to warm up before making a full leap on One More Level's bloody wallrunner.

Ghostrunner review

Elite cyber ninja? I died 1423 times in Ghostrunner. Over a seven hour campaign that roughly works out at three deaths a minute. That’s the kind of toll even today’s shower of political leaders would struggle to shrug off. A body count so vast I wonder if I ever actually understood Ghostrunner or simply fluked through. In the same way that I passed my driving…

With Lab Zero gone, Indivisible wont be getting any more updates

Indivisible is as finished as it'll ever be. There may have been plans to add a number of crossover and crowdfunded characters to the turn-based-but-not RPG, but the implosion of developers Lab Zero has put one hell of a wrench in the works. This week, publishers 505 Games clarified the situation regarding future Indivisible updates, and regret to inform that there'll be no further work…

Ghostrunner’s cyberpunk parkour slides out next month

Annoyingly, I still can't wallrun in real life - and it sure ain't for lack of trying. Thankfully, Ghostrunner is swinging in with some real good vertical sprinting. Arriving on October 27th, One More Level's dystopian dash n' slasher is cutting heads and sliding down stylish cyberpunk buildings without so much as scuffing its knees.

Control is out now on Steam, along with its Alan Wake expansion

If you've been waiting for Control's Epic exclusivity to end, well, wait no longer. Remedy Entertainment's third-person spook-em-up arrived on Steam today in the form of an Ultimate Edition containing the base game and both expansions, The Foundation and AWE. As fate (read: Remedy's marketing department) would have it, AWE launched today as well. It's the long-rumoured Alan Wake expansion, which has you exploring a…

Control’s new AWE DLC doesn’t have much Alan Wake, but it has a great monster

Control's new AWE DLC might technically stand for "Altered World Events" - the term the game's FBI-but-magic organisation The Federal Bureau of Control uses for the weird stuff they investigate - but let's be honest, we all know it's going to be remembered as the "Alan Wake Expansion". That's the theme for this second and final DLC for Remedy's third-person action-adventure, which we called an…

Control is coming to Steam this month with an Ultimate Edition

Remedy Entertainment have confirmed that their spooky interdimensional shooter, Control, will launch on Steam on August 27th. We kind of expected that this would be the case, seeing as it had a one-year Epic exclusivity deal which logically would come to an end on that date, but it's nice to finally have it official. The game will release on Valve's storefront in the form of…

Remedy are making a new game set in the Control and Alan Wake universe

For some time, fans speculated on whether Control's mentions of Alan Wake were just fun little easter eggs or hints that Remedy's two games are meaningfully set in the same spooky fictional world. Now the studio have confirmed not only that Mr. Wake will appear in Control's next expansion, but that they are already working on a new game set in a little place they're…

Control’s Alan Wake expansion comes out this month

So it is, the rumours are true. After months of speculation on whether or not Alan Wake might make an appearance in Control, Remedy Entertainment have revealed that he will indeed be in the game's next DLC, AWE. You won't have to wait long to see him either, because it releases on August 27th. For a hot second, I thought that AWE might stand for…

The eyes have it – I can’t get enough of Death Stranding’s immaculate faces

I'm not afraid to say that I have absolutely no idea about what's going on in Death Stranding after a couple of hours with it. Something about a big apocalypse, some strands, a man who has the face of Guillermo Del Toro but not his voice keeps trying to me to kill a baby in a jar, and apparently my mum is the president of…

Even Death Stranding’s ultrawide resolutions find a way to be weird

Death Stranding has had several lovely upgrades for its PC release, including uncapped frame rates, 4K resolution support and Nvidia's DLSS 2.0 tech. But the one I've been most looking forward to trying out is its 21:9 ultrawide monitor support. After all, Death Stranding is effectively Beautiful Landscape: The Game in addition to being a surprisingly engrossing postman sim, and seeing its huge, expansive vistas…

Death Stranding’s first PC patch addresses bugs and stability

Bridge man Sam Stranding or Die Bridgeman or whatever his name is has been trekking across post-apocalyptic America now that Death Stranding is out on PC. You'll have an update queued up before you can get back to delivery mode though, as 505 Games have released the first quick patch for strand simulator before the weekend. It's a collection of small bug fixes for better…

Feature: Gravitas notwithStranding

I like weird storytelling, but even I think Death Stranding is a bit much

I am big into weird stuff. My tastes lean towards being surprised over being moved, and my favourite games and films and books reflect that. Give me wild fantastical sci-fi first, interesting character arcs second. So far Death Stranding has given me a very quiet yet very grumpy man while frontloading some of the most delightful nonsense I've seen in videogames. I am here for…

Spot the difference between Death Stranding and its DLSS 2.0 tech

When I first tested Death Stranding's DLSS 2.0 tech in the run-up to the game's release, I wasn't able to show you what it actually looked like. I could tell you that switching it on would turn any RTX card into a 4K 60fps machine, but not how its clever, AI-driven upscaling wizardry affected the in-game visuals. Well, now I can, and as you'll soon…

Death Stranding Half-Life cube locations: how to get the gravity glove

The PC version of Death Stranding is finally here. To make up for the long wait, there is some Half-Life stuff that has been added to the game. To get the items, you'll need to find companion cubes with clues to their locations hidden in emails.While the most intriguing inclusion is the gravity glove thanks to its ability to drag in items from a short…

Death Stranding tells the worst elements of open world games to take a hike

Having bounced off the opening exposition of Death Stranding on PS4 last November I was not anticipating falling in love with its craggy exploration on PC. And yet here I am, some 40 hours under my belt (along with a pair of spare boots and 30ft of climbing rope) and readily committed to 40 hours more. Underneath that initial hit of lore, acronyms and holographic…

Death Stranding is now out on PC

Following its PlayStation debut last year, Death Stranding is now out on PC too. This is the latest game from Metal Gear Solid maestro Hideo Kojima and his studio Kojima Productions, and stars Norman Reedus as a post-apocalyptic postman traversing the wastes of the USA. Something's spooky has happened, see, so Norm needs a baby in a bottle to help protect himself from extradimensional ghosties.…

Social distancing simulator Death Stranding launches on PC tomorrow but Kojima Productions have delivered a launch trailer today. If you've been waiting to get your postman parkour on in full 4K resolutions, the time has nearly arrived. Bridge man Sam is all packed up and ready to cart that cargo all over post apocalyptic America starting tomorrow, July 14th.

Death Stranding’s DLSS tech will turn any RTX card into a 4K 60fps machine

We've still got two weeks to go until Kojima's post-apocalyptic deliver 'em up Death Stranding comes out on PC, but as my early performance tests showed yesterday, even GTX 1060 owners should be able to run the game at 60fps on max settings at 1080p. However, Nvidia have since confirmed that Death Stranding will also be getting DLSS 2.0 support when it comes out on…
