Get cricked on: Don Bradman Cricket 17 released

I will be very excited to see a futuresport game which does for cricket what Rocket League did to… football? Hockey? I want cricket with robots and/or cars, basically. 100 Foot Robot Cricket. Crocket League. That sort of thing. In the meantime, we’ll have to settle for regular vidcricket. Don Bradman Cricket 17 [official site] has arrived on PC, simulating the game with the best theme song in all sportdom. I’ve picked at the game’s demo over a few months and yeah, of course it doesn’t feel anything like actually playing cricket but it feels like a decent enough approximation in that abstracted sports game way.

Resident Evil 7 demo now spooking PC

The Resident Evil 7 [official site] demo ‘Beginning Hour’ is now out on PC after six months of haunting consoles. RE7 looks a curious one, ostensibly returning to the series’ roots in spooky mansions but with hillbilly horror and an Amnesia-ish, PT-y first-person style. Most of what Capcom have shown so far is set inside one derelict spookhouse, and now we can visit that place ourselves in the demo. Beginning Hour isn’t the game’s first hour but rather a mood-setting piece, confusingly. As our Adam has written, It’s certainly interesting to see such a bloated series stripped back.

If you keep an eye on what’s popular on Steam, you may have noticed it near the top of the most-played games list – or popping in and out of the charts – and wondered what it’s about. Well! You can now see what The Kids are into and briefly feel like you’re ‘down with The Youth’. Soon you’ll be striking up conversations with them on the bus, “What’s your favourite stabbing sound? I like the bone saw!” Read the rest of this entry »
