Feature: Crysis Remastered, reviewed

Sure, Crysis Remastered is nice, but have you ever played the original Crysis?

Crysis was always about more than its graphics. Crysis was and is a first-person stealth playground, with destructible buildings, clever enemies, and a set of flexible superpowers with which to make one collide with the other. Crysis Remastered is that game again, with new graphical bells and whistles you probably can't use, and a substantially higher price than the original game costs now.

Halo 3: ODST has arrived on PC

Halo: The Master Chief Collection has gained another game, except this one isn't actually about that Master Chief guy. Halo 3: ODST arrived on PC today, giving players the chance to follow the story of some normal human dudes, and not a giant Spartan. It takes place before the events of Halo 3, and you play as some Orbital Drop Shock Troopers who're trying to…

Feature: Really, it's fine

Crysis Remastered’s lead dev talks ray tracing, and why it’s OK if you can’t play ‘Can It Run Crysis?’ mode

Famed for its steep requirements and melting PCs the world over, the original Crysis was arguably one of the most important PC games of its day when it first came out in 2007. Not only did it push current PCs to their limits, but it also became a touchstone for the avid benchmarkers in the years that followed. Whenever you built a new PC, the…

Halo 3: ODST drops onto PC next week

Halo's long-overdue missing PC releases will continue with Halo 3: ODST next Tuesday, the 22nd of September, Microsoft announced today. ODST was one of Bungie's last Halo games and it turns away from jacked supersoldier Master Chef to focus on some regular squishy humans: Orbital Drop Shock Troopers. The game has a good squad of these, borrowing voices from noughties sci-fi stars including Nathan Fillion,…

SnowRunner season one adds a Russian map and free map-modding tools

Vehicular disaster simulator SnowRunner has launched its first chunk of seasonal content today. You'll want to bring those snow chains because there's a decent bit to plow through. Season Pass holders will be headed to an icy lake in Russia while all other players will have some new map-modding tools and missions to play with. There's more yet to come later in the summer, say…

Feature: A nice, refreshing pint of Halo.

Halo 3 made me realise there’s only really one Halo game, and it’s all of them

The PC remaster of Halo 3 is another beautiful, robust polish job that shows just how well Bungie’s bombastic shooter series has aged. I recommend it heartily. Yes, it’s marred with some baffling narrative choices, bungled ally AI, and a few instances of phoned-in level design, of course. But then, in the immortal words of that astronaut meme, “always has been”. And at this point,…

SnowRunner is adding a frozen new map next week

Let it not be said that SnowRunner doesn't have enough snow to run (well, drive) through. The rough n' tough truck sim is adding more routes to get stuck in with Lake Kovd, a treacherous frozen quagmire packed that'll arrive with the game's first season pass update later this week. Hope you've brought tyre chains, because it's about to get real slippery in old Russia.

Halo 3 finally arrives on PC next week

As history would prove, Halo 3 didn't quite finish the fight. For better or worse, they sure did keep making Halo games long after the reigns were handed over to now-caretakers 343 Industries. But us lot on PC will soon be able to close out Bungie's original trilogy, as the stellar closing act finally joins Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Steam and the Windows…

SnowRunner has added a new map, Rift

A new area has opened up in SnowRunner with a free update today, inviting players to get stuck in the Taymyr's Rift map. Sounds like a great place to take a honking great truck off-roading, Rift does. The publishers have also now picked winners for the first wad of monthly prize money for people making popular SnowRunner mods.

A Halo 2 multiplayer bug is killing your friends with ghost rockets

The PC release of Halo 2: Anniversary arrived on Wednesday morning with a revamped look and a nasty new bug. Folks trying its widely-adored multiplayer have found that trying to rockets and grenades fired at enemies will sometimes magically teleport to teammates and blow them up instead. That's bad, that. And then teamkilling protections can kick in and you get kicked from the match and...…

Halo 2: Anniversary is now out on PC

Ian Halo's remastered adventures continue on PC today with the release of Halo 2: Anniversary in the wee hours. Ian and his sexy pet search engine, Cortana, are continuing to get into sci-fi trouble with ringworlds, and this time we also get to play parts from an alien Arbiter's perspective too. Halo 2 has been on PC before, with a wonky port back in the…

Halo 2: Anniversary comes to PC next week

The adventures of Master Chief will continue in Halo 2: Anniversary next Tuesday, May 12th, Microsoft have announced. This time Master Chief (a name I still refuse to believe is real, even as characters say it) and Cortana (a name I still reuse to believe Microsoft reused for their voice-activated searchbot) are joined by a new ally, switching perspectives for part of the story. I'm…

Feature: Flatbed head

SnowRunner review

I took my Chevy to the levee, but the levee wasn’t dry. That’s the problem all over Black River, actually: a recent flood has rendered the soil sodden enough to swallow a car whole. Days of rain have closed the north road out of an already-sleepy Michigan town with rockslides. Power lines are down, too - although that might have more to do with stubborn…

Instead of WWE 2K21, wrestling fans are getting arcade action in WWE 2K Battlegrounds this year

There's no proper WWE 2K game coming this year, which isn't too surprising after the rough landing that WWE 2K20 had last year. Instead, 2K have announced something that seems, or at least looks, quite different. Enter stage left WWE 2K Battlegrounds, a game which sounds like a wrestling battle royale but probably is not. All we've seen so far is Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson…

SnowRunner devs want mod support, and mods, available from day one

If there are two things you probably shouldn't be sick of going into SnowRunner, it's trucks and snow. They're sort of essential parts of the chilly Spintires: MudRunner follow-up, right? But if you do get tired of 'em after heading into Saber Interactive's frosty truck sim, fret not. When it launches next week, SnowRunner should launch will full mod support - letting you get behind…

Snowrunner’s latest trailer apes Death Stranding really well

I'd forgotten that Snowrunner, the trucking sim where the weather pushes back you at every turn, is out this month. The trailer reminded me of that, and it also reminded me of Death Stranding. I mean, it's a clear parody of Hideo Kojima's game, but it's also the sad tale of a man in a truck and the family he left behind.

World War Z, Tormentor X Punisher and Figment go free on Epic Games this week

Zombies, demons and... music? This week's free rotation on the Epic Games Store is an odd mix-up, that's for sure. You know the drill by now - from today until next Thursday, World War Z, Tormentor X Punisher and Figment are free to keep forever over on Epic. Once Thursday rolls by, it's back to full price they go, replaced in kind by Gone Home…
