Sea Of Thieves is setting sail for Steam

After two years on Microsoft's janky Windows 10 Store, Sea Of Thieves is now officially headed to Steam. Rare last night announced that a Steam release for their multiplayer pirate sandbox is "coming soon", and yes Steamers will be able to play with pirates on the Microsoft Store as well as Xbox One. I know many grumbled about the gaping lack of things to do…

Feature: Who let the locust out?

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…

Ninja Theory’s Bleeding Edge is out right now

Remember Bleeding Edge? It's that punky 4v4 multiplayer brawler made by none other than Ninja Theory, the creators of Hellblade. It seems like a strange heel turn after Hellblade, and we'll all get to find out just what it's all about today. The cartoony colourful style is appealing to my Overwatch-obsessed brain, so I'm quite looking forward to hopping onto Game Pass to give it…

Sea Of Thieves shipwrecks are great and I can’t believe players used to ignore them

I adore the shipwrecks in Sea Of Thieves. There's just something so thrilling about pulling up besides one and diving in to claim some sunken treasure. Maybe it's the fear of sharks lurking about, ready to strike, or perhaps it's the excitement of never knowing what sort of booty these lost vessels might contain. You'll understand then, dear reader, why I'm baffled to learn I'm…

Beware this gnarly Sea Of Thieves bug that could wreck hours of questing

There are many ways to lose quest progress in Sea Of Thieves, whether it be an attack by the kraken or fellow pirates, but a bug is definitely the biggest bummer way to go home empty-handed. There's a nasty new respawning bug that can set you back hours in the final Tall Tale quest in the Shores Of Gold story. Rare are aware of the…

Not two weeks after Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary snuck onto PC, and we're already talking about the sequel. Steady on, team. This week, John "Masterchief" Halo's handlers over at 343 Industries announced plans to flight (that's Halo-speak for "test) Halo 2's return to PC in The Master Chief Collection. It'll trial alongside Forge and Theatre modes for Halo: Reach by the end of the month,…

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Baur’s Reach avalance: how to escape the highest peak

At the top of the Baur's Reach, the highest peak in Ori And The Will Of The Wisps, Ori finally finds what he's looking for. Unfortunately, Shriek has other plans and triggers an avalanche with her noisy behaviour. He must now get down very sharpish.

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Shriek: how to beat the final boss

You've done everything you can in Ori And The Will Of The Wisps except bring the Spirits to the Spirit Willow. But there's a nasty surprise waiting for you when you get there. The giant owl that hurt your friend and who has been hunting you the entire game is here to stop you.

Feature: No... why?

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Kwolok: how to beat the frog

It's fair to say that the boss fight with Kwolok is one of the sadder encounters of Ori And The Will Of The Wisps. As a sage-like figure, Kwolok guided Ori in this strange land, but now he's under the control of a big tentacle monster. It's not a fun time, but he does have a Spirit that you need to complete the quest and…

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Mora: how to defeat the giant spider

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps has a fair number of boss fights, but this one is that shade creepier than most. This giant spider is Mora and she does all the things giant spiders like to do, but it also likes to make things very dark. She is utterly terrifying to fight if you're not prepared, so this guide will go through all the…

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps is out now

Today has brought the launch of Ori And The Will Of The Wisps, the follow-up to Ori's lovely 2015 journey through the Blind Forest. The cute lil' fella is off on another metroidvania-y platforming adventure, bashing baddies, gaining new movement abilities, and generally cooing at the pretty scenery. And it's a cracker, so I'm told. Lovely to the eyes and a delight to the fingertips,…

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Feeding Grounds: how to hide from Shriek

You've likely seen Shriek already in Ori And The Will Of The Wisps, but this big bird is out for blood. Entering the Feeding Grounds area, you'll soon have to sneak your way past this massive bird before it sees you. It's surprisingly more difficult than it sounds.

Feature: The Angry Birds catches the Worms

Have You Played… Castlestorm?

Castlestorm was Angry Birds re-imagined as tower defence, with a dash of Worms and a WoW-lite aesthetic, and it was extremely good! If it was released today, however, I’d probably ignore it. Because, even though it isn’t even a mobile game, it’s got a massive case of rubbish mobile game energy. It’s all exaggerated, cartoony fantasy characters, bright colours, and humour of the kind that…

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Hand To Hand: how to complete the fetch quest

Feature: Finding Lupo

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps map locations: where to find Lupo in each area

When exploring the labyrinthine world of Ori And The Will Of The Wisps, it helps to have maps. Luckily, there is a rather neat lad named Lupo who will sell you complete maps of each area in the game. The only downside to this is that you need to find him in each area and he's well hidden in some cases.

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Midnight Burrows: how to solve the bell puzzles

There are lots of secrets within Ori And The Will Of The Wisps, but none are more fascinating than the rumour you get about the Midnight Burrows. This hidden area has an entire dungeon locked behind some flowers you ring like bells. But what order do you ring them?

Feature: Staying healthy

Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Life Cell fragment locations: how to get more health

Staying alive in Ori And The Will Of The Wisps is going to be difficult with low health, so you'll want to find Life Cell fragments. When you get two of them, you'll get extra maximum health. As one of the big collectables in the game, you may wish to find all of them, so we have been on the hunt for these fragments.
