Four whole sexy games made Steam’s top new releases in February

Right out of the oven, here are the hottest new games on Steam from February and boy they are hot indeed. Put those games on the cooling rack and open a window, will you? Games with "sexual content," (in the parlance of professional business speak) do occasionally crack the list of top selling new games but four is quite a feat. There are other trends…

Metro Exodus arrives on Steam after a year of Epic exclusivity

All aboard! After braving the stormy tracks of Epic Games Store exclusivity for the past 12 months, Metro: Exodus has finally pulled into Steam central station. Trading claustrophobic tunnels for a grand post-apocalyptic Russian expanse, the rather-good third entry in 4A Games' Metro series arrives today, with two hefty expansion stories in tow.

Kingdom Come Deliverance and Aztez are free on the Epic Store today

It's Thursday, and that means new free games on the Epic Store. Between now and February 20th there are two quite fight-y games up for grabs. The first is Kingdom Come: Deliverance, a rare medieval RPG that focuses more on historical stuff rather than the fantastical. Next up is Aztez, a side-scrolling brawler set in Aztec times when the only colours they had were red,…

Help Spartan Ranger Sam find his way home in the new Metro Exodus expansion

Sam's Story, the latest and last story expansion for Metro Exodus has launched, plonking you in the shoes of a former US Marine who's trying to find a way home through the Russian wastelands. It has arrived just a few days before Exodus's year of Epic Games Store exclusivity ends and the game launches on Steam too. In the launch trailer, we hear gruff Sam…

Metro Exodus’ Epic exclusivity is nearly over, and it’s arriving on Steam next week

After a year of being exclusive to the Epic Games Store, Metro Exodus is hitting Steam next week. The third game in the post-apocalyptic FPS series is pretty decent, and by the time it's out on Steam it'll have two expansions to play through too. So, it's a good time to get hold of it, and if you've been waiting for it to be free…

Metro Exodus’ second expansion is coming in February

The Russian post-apocalypse game Metro Exodus has announced a date for its second DLC coming in February. Like the first DLC, Sam’s Story ditches the main game's protagonist in favor of a new set of eyes. It will follow the story of a US Marine trying to make his way back to the states from the Moscow embassy where he was stationed before the nukes started…

Shenmue 3 will let you play as two new characters in its first DLC next week

Koch Media have announced the very first DLC for Shenmue 3, Battle Rally, will be released on Tuesday 21st January. By the looks of things it's inviting players to take part in a race (on foot I think?), and you'll even be able to play as different characters for the first time. Sorry Ryo. "Battle Rally offers fresh gaming activities in a race unlike any…

Feature: Wax on, drift off

Shenmue 3 review

Nothing better captures the magic of Shenmue III than its save files. On one line, the current date and time; above it, the date and time this particular save will whisk you back to. Because that’s what Shenmue is: time travel. The opportunity to visit a very specific moment in history. In the case of Shenmue III, China in the spring of 1987. Of course,…

After 18 years, Shenmue 3 is finally a game you can play right now

It's only gone and come out, hasn't it? Four years after its controversial, record-breaking $6 million Kickstarter campaign, Shenmue 3 is finally a game you can pick up and play. Blimey, it's only been 18 years since the last one. Shenmue's had a rough road to release, full of publisher scandals and delay after delay after delay. But it's finally time to pick up where…

Wasteland 3 coming in May with a robotic Ronald Reagan

I thought the post-apocalyptic horrors of Wasteland 3 couldn't surprise me but goodness me, I'm chilled to the core. I've seen all the usual torments--nuclear winter, cannibalism, slavery, torture, famine--but I was not prepared for the sight of a giant robotic Ronald Reagan. My god, what have we done? We must change our ways before it's too late. We can't let this vision become reality.…

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.…

What you do when you’re not chasing your destiny in Shenmue 3

A lot of Shenmue happens in the spaces between the game. I remember my time in Yu Suziki's sprawling RPGs not as some grand unveiling of my destiny, but as a dude collecting capsule toys, getting a job as a forklift driver, and hanging out at the arcade. I lived a rich little life playing it, though because of it I horribly failed my forklift…

Chill with Wasteland 3’s new, snow-caked trailer

It didn’t seem all that long ago that a new Wasteland game was nothing but a distant dream, but now we’re here at the third game in the series. InXile’s newest tactical RPG is set away from the dusty deserts of Arizona, and takes in you into the mountains, beckoned there by the Patriarch of Colorado. Here he is, being all portentous and grey, begging…

Feature: Throwback Thursday

Why are so many old games coming back? We asked developers why they chase nostalgia

Remember that thing you like from 10 years ago? It’s probably getting a sequel. Shenmue 3. Evil Genius 2. Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2. The calendar of upcoming games is packed with throwbacks that will revisit the worlds we left behind over a decade ago. Oddworld: Soulstorm is heading back to the strange homeland of Abe the skinny green freedom farter. Mechwarrior 5 is booting…

Epic covering refund costs for crowdfunded games going exclusive to their store

Epic Games are continuing to slap on a thick coat of cash to smooth over problems with their substandard store, now announcing money is their solution to discontent over crowdfunded games such as Shenmue III becoming Epic exclusives. For games whose crowdfunding campaigns offered keys for the game on a specific store before the game became a timed Epic exclusive, Epic now say, they'll either…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Feature: Technically, these are tortoises

You can race turtles in Shenmue 3 and, OK, yes, this is nice

Let’s get it out of the way: I have not played the Shenmues. For some this admission will immediately disqualify me from having a valid opinion on one of the most eagerly awaited (and expensive) Kickstarter throwbacks in history. I know how this will go. I will tell you I have played a bit, that the characters feel wooden, that the English voice acting is…

Shenmue 3 delayed again, back to November

The will-mue, won't-mue of Shenmue will continue for a while longer, as Shenmue III is delayed once again. Previously due on August 27th, the open-world brawl-o-RPG is now expected on November 19th. It's the usual reason: they want more time to finish and make it better. Almost three months might seem a fair while longer to wait but sheesh, it's been 18 years since Shenmue…

Metro Exodus gets back on track for two expansions

Lovely as Metro Exodus was, the extremely Russian post-apocalyptic FPS came (optionally) bundled with a sealed mystery vault of goodies in its season pass. Now, 4A games have finally revealed what's in the box, and it thankfully doesn't sound too painful. There are two expansions on the way, the first offering a more classic linear Metro story, and the second adding another open-world sandbox zone…

Tickets, please: stolen Metro Exodus Steam keys cancelled

Deep Silver have cancelled a load of Metro Exodus Steam keys sold through key resellers after discovering, they say, the keys had been stolen from the factory making boxed copies. Metro Exodus switched to Epic Games Store exclusivity late enough in development that they produced physical PC copies set up for Steam, then swapped out the Steam keys for Epic keys and stuck Epic stickers…
