Feature: It's the system

Syscrusher is the most fun I’ve had in an FPS all year

I'm still drip feeding on the endless treasures from The Bundle. It's healthier than bingeing, and you get more out of it that way. And that's how I stumbled across Syscrusher, a tiny game about shooting robots. I've installed and wearily deleted a dozen shooters in the last 8 months or so. I wish I could replace all their million unnecessary gigabytes with more of…

How Satisfactory’s developers lied to their players, and why the players loved it

Satisfactory’s Update 3 is one of gaming’s great bait and switches. For months, developer Coffee Stain had been denying that its first-person factory-building game would ever have pipes. Why would they? You could already transport liquids on conveyors, so what was the point? And then in February, the studio presented a magnificently overblown trailer which confirmed the opposite of what they’d been claiming for all…

Feature: BigCity, more like

NewCity lets you build cities on a massive scale

The first thing that tends to strike everyone about NewCity, is how massive its cities are. They make Cities: Skylines metropolises look poky, and cities from 2013's SimCity look like quaint little villages. There's no doubt about it: NewCity is all about urban sprawl, and actually comes close to being able to replicate the terrifyingly massive size of actual, real world cities. Indeed, in the…

Feature: The extended mess of coming out is the perennial queer experience

Spring Leaves No Flowers shows why games need more characters to come out

My earliest experience with trying to find out whether a character in a video game was homosexual was stalking the BioWare forums in 2008 or 2009. I was looking for information about which romance options in the upcoming, exciting new RPG Dragon Age: Origins were going to allow for a women-loving women option. Of course they weren’t really lesbians back then; characters in the BioWare…

Feature: How much better than Diamond are the new Netherite tools and armor?

Minecraft Netherite: how to get the new best tools and armor in Minecraft

Netherite is a new material in Minecraft, added in 1.16 (the Nether Update).

Read our below Minecraft Netherite guide to find out where to get Netherite, how to craft with it, and how much better Netherite tools are…

Feature: The best 1TB SSD just got even better

Samsung 870 Qvo review: the best that SATA SSDs have to offer

When Samsung launched their 860 Qvo SSD back at the end of 2018, it finally brought high capacity SSDs down to a more affordable price. Why was the 860 Qvo suddenly so much cheaper than the 860 Evo? Well, it was mostly down to the type of storage tech Samsung used inside the Qvo - what's known as 4-bit MLC (multi-level cell) V-NAND technology, as…

Modders are making ambitious things in Bannerlord, even without modding tools

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord has only been around for a few months, but that’s plenty of time for modders to have a good tinker. We’ve already been blessed with a bounty of minor Bannerlord mods: there are hundreds of ways to tweak, alter and optimise your experience, and the option to turn your character into a sword-swinging, death-dealing toddler is not to be sniffed…

Feature: A 60% keyboard that's great for games but not much else

Hands on with the HyperX x Ducky One 2 Mini keyboard

How small is too small for a gaming keyboard? Personally, I think my lower limit stops at tenkeyless jobs like the Logitech G915 TKL or my current best gaming keyboard champion, the Fnatic miniStreak. Losing a keyboard's number pad has never been an issue for me, but I can't say the same thing about losing my beloved arrow keys, which is the main thing that…

Feature: Cock Of The Walk

Bulletstorm is best when it’s being offensively stupid, not stupidly offensive

2011's Bulletstorm feels like such an oasis of violence and childishness in these current times of nu-puritanism. As someone who was there at the era it harked back to, reviewing games in the late '90s, early 2000s, it feels odd to now be almost nostalgic for those days of wanton unpleasantness, when being rude had yet to be classified as a war crime under the…

Feature: Improve your spelling

Best Noita mods

Every pixel is simulated in Noita. That means it can be dull or deadly, and react like its real-world counterpart (or, you know, its unreal-world counterpart). Throw in the OTT spells of your wizard, and the burning, electrified, or weird counter-spells of the enemies, and you have a perfect platform for mods.

Have You Played… Deadliest Catch: The Game?

Hope you like chipped paint textures, and the colour grey. Because you'll be seeing a lot of them in Deadliest Catch: The Game. Oh, and crabs. Hundreds and hundreds of near-identical crabs, which you must sort by hand, examining each one in turn before either throwing it back in the sea, or condemning it to an icy hold to await its demise on the plate…

Steam Points are better kept in your pocket than spent on Steam summer sale stickers

"It'll be easy," I thought to myself, when it was suggested someone do a nice, timely little post on the new-ish Steam Points system, and the various new goodies on offer through it. "Sure, no problem," I said, when Matt refused to write it because he thought Steam Points were "pointless", and I was the only other writer on the call with Graham. Matt was…

Thanks, deals summoner, your deals herald is most pleased. It also means that putting together this week's best PC gaming deals may include a teensy bit of overlap with those aforementioned Steam deals today, but I've done my best to…

Feature: Where the wild things are

Biomutant sounds like Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but furrier

The Biomutant reveal feels like a lifetime ago. Announced at Gamescom in 2017, the kung fu... cat/panda/bear-thing captured the imagination of everyone with that first trailer. And, despite some delays, the excitement for Experiment 101's open world RPG has been growing ever since. No wonder, I suppose. You are a kung fu cat/panda/bear-thing, after all.
