Have You Played… The Witcher 3?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

I have a mental firewall about how recent a game can be before I’m allowed to write a Have You Played? about it. In my head, The Witcher 3 is about three months old and therefore invalid.

It’s two years old next month. I’ve had it on my hard drive for two years now, thinking “yeah, I’ll finally finish that next weekend.” Read the rest of this entry »

Steam Charts: All About The Johnsons

our EIC Graham performs his noble duty

By the power of Grayskull, it’s only the weekly Steam charts! These are the games which sold best on Steam last week.

It’s all gone a bit 2015-2016 in here again, I’m afraid, but fortunately cavalry of a sort arrives in the pendulous form of some big ol’ swingin’ dicks. Read the rest of this entry »

Hex the planet! CD Projekt RED old forum hacked

CD Projekt RED, the makers of The Witcher, are warning that unknown naughty people gained access to an old forum database of theirs in March 2016. RED say passwords were stored in a way that should keep them obscured but do say, just to be safe, that if you used that same password on other sites you should probably change it. (You know better than to reuse passwords, don’t you?)

I myself didn’t know I’d even registered for their forums — I couldn’t tell you when or why — so perhaps you did it yonks ago yourself. Be warned! Read the rest of this entry »

Steam Charts: Do You Want Me To Dance For You?

It’s the weekly Steam charts! These are the games which sold best on Steam last week. This week, it’s the first true chart of 2017, as the last one covered the arse-end of 2016. All change, all change.

I’m even going to do this one upside-down. New year, new rules! And I don’t want to spoil the surprise right away.

Steam Top 100 reveals 2016’s money-making Steamers

Valve capped off 2016 by revealing the year’s 100 highest-grossing games on Steam, which is a pretty interesting list. If you’ve been following Alec’s prolonged breakdown over the weekly charts you’ll not be shocked by revelations that Grand Theft Auto V and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are near the top, but you might not expect them to be joined by the likes of No Man’s Sky or the free-to-play Dota 2.

When I asked Alec if he fancied writing up this chart too, he began hissing “The Venga Bus is coming the Venga Bus IS coming the Venga Bus is coming to take me away ho-ho hee-hee ha-haaa” so you get me and my GIFs instead. Read the rest of this entry »

You Asked For It: The Steam Charts Return

Out with the old, in with the new. By which I mean ‘and our weekly Steam Charts, showing the ten games which sold best over the previous week, returns – replete with most of the same names as last year.’

SHOULD AULD ACQUAINTANCE BE FORGOT AND NEVER BROUGHT TO MIND?
