Apex Legends review

Apex Legends is a dumb name. There. There goes the hat of criticism, back into its box. On goes the hat of unreserved praise. That name is just about the only foot the Titanfall devs have set wrong here, and I expect to be stretching my Apelegs every evening for the foreseeable future. This is the best battle royale game we’re going to see for…

Have You Played… Little Big Adventure?

Little Big Adventure (known in the US by the uninspired name of "Relentless") is perhaps where my love for PC gaming truly started and one of the first games I completed. We got our first computer with Windows 95 a couple of years after this game first graced MS-DOS, and we had to quit Windows every time just to get it to run, but memories…

Unknown Pleasures: A Winter’s Quail

I have cancelled February. Today, and tomorrow, and most of the next two weeks, do not exist. It has been that kind of month, and I don't think I'm the only one. Please purge responsibly, everyone. Don't guillotine anything I wouldn't guillotine. Unknown Pleasures is running a little behind, not least because there were a truly ridiculous number of games to get through earlier this…

Apex Legends finishers – how to execute enemies in Apex Legends, finisher tips and tricks

Part of what has made the battle royale genre so successful is the fact that all these enemies dropping with you are other players, that you're all in the same boat as one another, and so it's satisfying as hell to kill an enemy because it gives you such a feeling of "HA! I outplayed you! I'm better than you!" - even if that isn't…

Apex Legends Ping guide – how to use the Ping system, communicating with teammates, Ping Wheel explained

Apex Legends, the new battle royale by Titanfall creators Respawn, has been making waves since its release on 4th Feb. One of the reasons for its instant success is its fantastic Ping system, which allows you to communicate with teammates quickly, dynamically, and effectively without using voice chat functionality. But the more you play around with the Ping system, the more you realise there are…

The best fan-made Thief missions you can pilfer

Thief: The Dark Project still stands out as one of the most compelling stealth games twenty years after release. Huge levels packed with treasure and secrets, and no radars or sensors to help -- just your senses, intuition, and maybe a badly drawn map. While later games in the series were a bit ropey, the first two Looking Glass-developed ones are still actively supported by the…

Last time on the BoC: A new migrant, Urist, declared herself mayor, leading to a power struggle with former expedition leader Lorbam.

Apex Legends: How to revive allies, Respawn Beacon locations, how to self-revive

Apex Legends has taken the gaming world by storm these past few days, and one of the reasons is that it does several things rather differently from its competition. One of these differences is the game's method of reviving and respawning fallen teammates, which allows even an eliminated player to re-enter the fray later on down the line - as long as their teammate is…

Best gaming SSD 2019: Top SATA and M.2 drives for PC

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for playing too much Apex Legends. Have some people written about it in the best articles about video games from the past week? Or before that, because I read some good stuff while I was on holiday? Maybe. Maybe. For Waypoint, Yussef Cole laid out the numerous problems with Fortnite's appropriation of dances from black artists. It's a context I wasn't entirely aware…

Priceless Play – 16 February 2019

I don't like Dream Daddy. There. I said it. A game that de-eroticises queer romance in some apolitical neoliberal mystery world isn't it, chief.* There's a lot to love there, but so much about its technically-indie-corporate-sheen marketing gay romance rubs me the wrong way. I'm glad the game is there for those who need it, I'm glad there's a game where queer folks seem pretty…
