5 things I demand from Witchbrook, Chucklefish’s new magical Stardew-like

I'm still struggling to grow a respectable pumpkin in my Stardew Valley farm, and now it seems I'll have more obstacles to contend with, as I've been diverted by Stardew publisher Chucklefish. Last week they released three (3) new screenshots for Witchbrook, their upcoming life sim set in and around a magic school. It has been described by many, not unreasonably, as "Harry Potter meets…

Sam & Max Hit The Road is a sparkling gem that no longer fits into modern settings

As I continue my coughogeddon-inspired journey into comfort gaming, my next intended destination was Day Of The Tentacle. I've always loved it, ever since my dad bought me the prism-shaped box it so ridiculously came in. I've replayed it so many times, most recently last year four years ago when the Remastered version came out. (FOUR YEARS?) I adore it. But as I started it…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for continuing to continue staying at home. Here's the best writing about videogames from the past week. For PC Gamer, Luke Winkie spoke to a dad who quit his job to run a Minecraft server for autistic children. I teared up a little, and that is rare.

Priceless Play – 4 April 2020

Now Play This, a festival for experimental game design, is one of the many games events either postponed or cancelled to stop the spread of COVID-19. The festival has been running for six years or so, celebrating the strange and unexpected in game design, and each year it brings together some truly spectacular art pieces and games. This year, the festival team has had to…

Riot’s first-person shooter Valorant aims to take Counter-Strike’s crown

I skulk through a bottleneck boulevard before pausing to launch my newly-charged sonar arrow at a wall. Its my signature ability, and reveals the locations of all enemies within a small radius. As the timer winds down, I decide it’s time for a last-ditch effort to plant the spike. I launch myself around the corner and ru- Bang! I don’t see where it comes from,…

Feature: Featuring: more gorilla chat

Stela review

I heard a lovely story from a primatologist once, about how different apes tend to respond when faced with tricky wooden puzzle boxes. Orangutans, apparently, will sit and think for a while when stumped, and then work carefully at a new angle on the problem. Chimps, meanwhile, will typically lose their tempers, smashing the offending puzzle to splinters with their hellish fists. But gorillas -…

Warzone’s map is great, and we should make a bigger deal about it

At first, I took the map in Call Of Duty: Warzone for granted. The blistering forward march of techno-wizadry had inured me to its impact, and I jumped out of the spawning plane with my eyes glazed over. Of course the latest COD's playground is bigger and more detailed than any other battle royale's, I thought. How could it be otherwise. My eyes are open…

Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord smithing: how to forge weapons

You could just buy weapons from traders in Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord, but why would you do that when you can make your own? You'll need to set things up first, such as getting some hardwood to refine into charcoal, as well as plenty of loot from fallen enemies to learn weapon parts, but with our help, you'll soon be making wonderfully powerful weapons…

The 11 nicest smiles in PC games

The human race evolved the facial expression known as the “smile” because we needed a way to silently communicate satisfaction to other members of our species. So we decided to bare our teeth at one another and squint. This stuck, and now even the characters of your favourite digital storyderby are doing it. It’s sort of disgusting, and yet… you know what, I like it.…

Gears Tactics will appeal to XCOM fans and classic Gears Of War fans alike

Show me someone who says I'm not a fan of our excellent VidBud team, and I'll show you a liar. Recently, VidBud Matthew got an in-depth demo of Gears Tactics, a turn-based tactical entry into the Gears Of War series, and my admiration only grew. Set 10 years before the events of the very first Gears Of War game, you'd be forgiven for thinking this'd…

I have finished the sad tamogotchi game that is The Longing

This is the last entry in my diary of playing The Longing, a "sad tamagotchi" game that can take over a year to play. As it turns out, however, it only took me a few months. The first entry in the diary series is here, and you can read all of it here. It has been... emotional. You join us as Burnsy, which is what…

Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord caravan guide: tips on trade and earning gold

When you begin Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord, you'll only have a paltry sum of gold to your name. In order to build up your army and keep them fed, you'll need to make some smart investments with traders and caravans. Money talks as they say, but in Bannerlord, gold is especially important to succeeding and you'll want lots of it.

Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord companions: how to get them and why you need them

Recruiting people to your cause in Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord is key to achieving your goals, whatever they may be.

Finding them in the first place is a challenge, but once you have…
