Meticulous Experimentation In Farming Simulator 17

After a worrying absence of a 2016 edition, Farming Simulator 17 [official site] is back to simulate all your rural needs. And who better qualified to tell you all about it than I, John “Farmer” Walker, management game expert and lover of all things agricultural?!

Sow Your Seeds: Farming Simulator 17 Released

I do like that PC gaming now has a spectrum of imaginary farming from Stardew Valley to Farming Simulator 17 [official site]. If have lazy daydreams about a magical new life in the country as a farmer/explorer/lover, look to Stardew. If names like Massey Fergy send a chill down your spine and you dream of ploughing perfect furrows, yeah, it’s Farm Sim for you. The latest version launched last night, bringing more simulated agriculture with ploughing, planting, harvesting, transporting, and dicking about racing harvesters through town with your pals in multiplayer.

Styx: Shards Of Darkness Gets Delay, Gameplay Trailer

That’s the thing about stab-happy goblins: you can never be sure quite when they’ll pop up. Styx was meant to continue his merry little adventures in Styx: Shards of Darkness [official site] this year, but nah. Instead, Cyanide’s follow-up to the 2014 fantasy stealth game Styx: Master of Shadows will now arrive in early 2017. While we’ll need to wait longer to sneak around ourselves, today we can watch someone else do it, thanks to a new eight-minute gameplay video:

Wot I Think: Seasons After Fall

Seasons After Fall

Seasons After Fall [official site] is Swing Swing Submarine’s addition to the slowly-expanding subgenre of platformers which feature foxes and charming artwork. Here you play as a spirit controlling a fox as you attempt to harness the power of the seasons at the bidding of a mysterious character. The main point of difference between Seasons After Fall and other pretty platformers is that you get to switch between seasons you’ve unlocked at will, which then changes elements of the puzzles. Here’s Wot I Think:

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Opening Tau Beta Tomorrow

The Tau are coming to Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site], the real-time adaptation of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40K spaceship battle boardgame, serving the Greater Good. Those blue fellas will be paid DLC but, in the sharing spirit, from tomorrow they’ll be free for Battlefleet players to try in beta for a bit. Maybe you’ll like how they think. Maybe you’ll want to sign up. Maybe you’ll want to launch military campaigns to help everyone else realise the Tau way is best.

Watch 14 Minutes Of Vampyr Pre-Alpha Gameplay


Oh hey, I didn’t see this gameplay demo walkthrough-y footage of Vampyr [official site] come up earlier this week. It’s sort of from E3 but this version that doesn’t have people talking over the top so let’s have a look now. (In case you need a little refresher it’s that vampire-themed RPG from the Life Is Strange devs where you’re a vampire doctor and have to make decisions about who to kill to sate your thirst.)

Lords Of The Fallen Devs Show Off The Surge

German studio Deck13 are mostly known for adventure games like Jack Keane but they’ve gone a bit biff-bow in recent years, most recently with Lords of the Fallen, a pretty bleh Dark Souls-inspired action-RPG. Well, they’ll be biffing again next year with The Surge [official site], a sci-fi hack ‘n’ slash action-RPG which they’re showing off now in a new 15-minute gameplay trailer. Observe:
