Quantum League review (early access)

Each fifteen seconds of a match of competitive FPS Quantum League repeats, creating its own timeline of player actions which persist until the end of the third run, or until that timeline is interrupted by the actions of a player in a subsequent run. It’s Clock Blockers, basically. Sometimes, you pull off supremely tactical synchronized plays with versions of your past self. Sometimes, you have…

Hands-on preview – Total War Saga: Troy promises demanding, fast-paced strategy

Total War Saga: Troy is out on August 13th and will be free at launch, and having played a demo battle which pitted Achilles’ Acheans against Hector’s Trojans, I’m intrigued to play more. I've chosen the word "intrigued" deliberately, here. Because while the tactical depth of what I played was impressive, and rooted itself emphatically in its semi-mythical setting, its multi-skilled infantry and attention-demanding heroes…

Drink cola and fight someone in Treachery In Beatdown City

Treachery In Beatdown City is a rare name that would feel perfectly at home both now and in 1990. I mean, honestly, who would be treacherous in a place called Beatdown City? It's just asking for a particularly righteous kicking.And that's how it goes. The people in charge have betrayed the public trust, and it's down to you to trust in your fists to put…

The 10 best Flash games, and how to play them in 2020

At the end of this year, most Flash games will be unplayable in their original form. Adobe are going to stop distributing Flash, and so most browsers plan on dropping Flash support. While this may be an internet security victory - Flash has a history of being vulnerable to certain kinds of malware - it does make it harder to experience the thousands of online…

Have You Played… Creature In The Well?

The Addams Family and The Twilight Zone are just TV shows to me, not pinball tables. I've never had an affinity for IRL bumpers and flippers. I do, however, quite like pinball-infused video games.The absolute joy that is Yoku's Island Express opened my eyes to what a video game could do with pinball elements, a few years back. And, in 2019, Creature In The Well…

The difficulty with Pathologic 2’s difficulty

“Nikolay, right now, what do you think about Pathologic 2? Was it a successful experiment?”“Oh yes, of course! Certainly it was! Moreover, due to the conditions in which we constructed this game, it was a miracle that we released it. But I wouldn’t say it’s the game we wanted to release.”Even now, over a year after Pathologic 2’s release, Nikolay Dybowski and Ivan Slovtsov have…

Valorant PC requirements and how to get the best performance

After months in closed beta, Valorant has finally arrived on PC, and to help you get the best performance from Riot's new 5v5 tactical shooter, I've been testing the game to see how it runs. The good news is that you don't need a super high-powered PC to get smooth frame rates in Valorant, but just in case your PC is getting on a bit,…

Feature: It's an old world after all

Old World review (early access)

Old World has been developed by a clutch of Civilization vets. So it’s hardly a surprise that, at a glance, it appears to be a very familiar strategy epic. You’ve got your usual slate of hexagons, littered with 100 foot tall soldiers and crabs the size of mountains. You’ve got your turn-by-turn freestyle jazz remix of ancient history, a revisionist mess in which the Romans…

Valorant review

Valorant is Riot's newfangled hybrid of CS:GO and Overwatch, where teams of five run around shooting very deadly weapons while deploying character-based abilities. It's very, very similar to CS:GO, right down to the round structure and individual weapons. If you've ever defused a bomb in Counter-Strike, there's a good chance you'll already be a crack shot here. It's basically the same, but with more mind…

Best Shotgun in Warzone [Season 3]: a guide to Shotguns in Modern Warfare

Feature: How effective can a Marksman Rifle be in Warzone?

Best Marksman Rifle in Warzone [Season 3]: a guide to Marksman Rifles in Modern Warfare

Marksman Rifles were always extremely potent weapons in Modern Warfare, but in Warzone they're often outclassed by the bulkier and harder-hitting sniper rifles. But despite their relatively lowly standing in the current meta, there's still a lot of fun to be had with these rifles.Our Best Marksman Rifle in Warzone guide, as you might expect, is here to catch you up on the standing of…

Best Sniper in Warzone [Season 3]: a guide to Sniper Rifles in Modern Warfare

Sniper Rifles dominate Call Of Duty: Warzone and its sprawling, rooftop-dotted landscape. They always have, and they always will, thanks to the invaluable trait that a single headshot from a bolt-action Sniper Rifle is a guaranteed kill.

Best LMG in Warzone [Season 3]: a guide to LMGs in Modern Warfare

The best LMGs offer a very special collection of traits that few other weapons in Warzone can match. High DPS and large magazines allow you to drop entire teams quickly, while the excellent damage dropoff values and low recoil of certain LMGs give you an extremely potent answer to long-range encounters.Our Best LMG in Warzone guide will not only walk you through the stats of…

Feature: A bridge not far enough

Poly Bridge 2 review

I'm so interested in how expectation affects our experience of games. Whether it's from over-ambitious promotional materials, peculiarly unhelpful reviews, or completely misreading the game's description before buying it, what we're hoping for before we start really colours how we receive the game. I was convinced that Poly Bridge 2 was a goofy physics puzzler, something somewhere between Totally Accurate Battle Simulator and Crayon Physics…

Path Of Exile’s next expansion takes a leaf from Stardew Valley and makes loot-farming literal

On June 19th, the next quarterly update for Path Of Exile - the free-to-play action RPG - will give players the chance to trade blood-soaked knives for green fingers. It's called Harvest, and it tasks you with managing a garden. Of course, your glowing nocturnal plants will blossom into monsters needing slaying, but this should provide some downtime between dungeon crawls in a game that…

Nimbatus review

Nimbatus is about building spaceships. More accurately, it's about learning to build spaceships. And if we're being completely honest, it's a game about learning how not to build them. At its heart is one of the most flexible digital construction toys I've come across, which allows for enormous complexity despite a relatively unforgiving learning curve, and Nimbatus would be a worthy purchase if its freestyle…

Best Terraria mods

Terraria’s final update, Journey’s End, is just the beginning. Developers Re-Logic have pulled off one final trick for their huge fanbase, making popular community mod manager tModloader officially supported. It’s a lovely gesture that means the players will have easy access to the bewildering amount of fan-made items, monsters, total conversions, and more, even if development has ceased. I had to editorialise a lot when…
