Trackmania is out now

Trackmania is a series that... christ, look at this mess. I'm not going to lay out the whole history of the series. They stretch back to 2003, over a dozen or so games on almost as many platforms. They're mostly about time trial races on outlandish, stunt-filled tracks. This latest one is a remake of Trackmania Nations, a free online spin-off released in 2006. It's…

Lower the gangplanks and drop anchor. The Anno History Collection has arrived, bringing four of Ubisoft's colonial city-building strategy sims into the publishers' digital harbour.

Feature: We don't talk about it anymore

What’s the state of DRM in 2020?

Back in the late 2000s, digital rights management - more commonly known as DRM - made itself difficult to ignore. CD copy protection programs such as SecuROM infamously limited the number of times players could install games like Bioshock on their PC, while Assassin’s Creed II required players to maintain a constant internet connection despite the fact it was a singleplayer game.

Feature: The hand of God

Have You Played… From Dust?

But despite a load of hoo-ha about DRM when this first released on PC, back in 2011, it's probably the most meditative god games I've ever played. You're not omnipotent, you see. You don't actually have a lot of powers. You can move sand around…

Apparently Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be bigger than Odyssey, actually

Forget review scores. The only true way to judge a game's quality is the converted square kilometers of its virtual world. Or so you'd think, with how big a talking point it is during the marketing campaign for every big open-world adventure.
