Back in March of 2013 I put together my first gaming PC in a while, working with a budget so tight that the elite community of gamers would giggle like school girls as they caressed their GTX Titans. Still, tight budget or not it has done rather well over the past year, giving me access to plenty of awesome games along the way, but about a month ago the sudden urge to do some upgrades took hold of me. This highlights one of the great things about a PC: if you’ve got some spare cash then you can upgrade the machine to further enhance your experience. I didn’t need to do it, because as budget as my previous build was it could have kept playing games for a little while to come, but I did it because it was something I wanted, a treat to myself. It’s also handy for this website, as it means I can stay on top of the PC titles, at least for the time being.

It seems that Codemasters are teasing the existence of DiRT 4, the long awaited sequel, or at least that’s the assumption that the Internet seems to arrive at, but is there any truth to it? Speculation began when the official DiRT Twitter sent out a simple Tweet saying, […]
The Risen games have never been exceptional RPGs, and yet somehow over the years they’ve gained a small but loyal group of fans who are willing to overlook the many flaws in order to find the sense of adventure buried beneath. While the first Risen was actually kind of good, Risen 2 was poor, so can this third game get things right? Sort of.
A slip up on Konami’s official UK page accidentally revealed that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes will both be coming to PC via Steam at some point. This accidental reveal occured merely half an hour before Konami’s Gamescom conference, where […]
Usually I like to begin reviews by talking about the game’s narrative, as I find that sets up the rest of the review nicely, providing context for just about everything else. But with Light what really needs to be tackled first are the graphics. The game is presented with a minimal style. As the player you tackle the entire game from a top-down view, with your avatar shown as a simple cube attempting to navigate a world of glowing walls and red enemy squares. Like the name implies, it’s a world made of light. As with any art-style that doesn’t conform to the norm it’s not going to be to everyone’s taste, but to me the game has a nice, simple, sleek look that’s pleasing to the eye.
Having teased the announcement earlier this year Lionhead have confirmed that Fable Anniversary will be arriving on PC very soon. September 12th, to be exact. The game is up for pre-order right now, and doing so will net you the first DLC pack for free. The pack will […]
