The Long Dark's creative director reckons the apocalypse doesn't have to feature zombies - but, erm, here's one more open world post-apocalyptic game that does. As announced last week, Sony's entry into the DayZ genre is the wittily (if clinically) named H1Z1, a game that differentiates itself from...
If you've been hoping to build up your digital PlayStation game library, this weekend should represent a great opportunity to do so. As part of a weekend flash sale, Sony has dropped the prices of more than 30 games for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita--ranging from $6 PlayStation Classics to $20...
In a new interview, an executive at Square Enix has doubled-down on the company’s DRM policy. The executive claims that DRM protects profits at the end of the day, and that’s the most important thing to any development studio, big or small. “The primary benefit to us is the same as with any...
The week's highs and lows in PC gaming PG 11:50AM PDT Apr 18, 2014
THE HIGHS Cory Banks: This one’s easy: the high point of my week was getting Peter ‘Durante’ Thoman to evaluate the technology behind From Software’s Dark Souls 2 PC version. We’re talking about the guy who single-handedly saved Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition from itself, restoring the kinds of...
One of my PAX East discoveries was that a media badge and a camera gives me full license to talk to strangers. After our panel on Friday, I spent some of Saturday cruising the LAN and BYOC area and the rest of the show floor to survey PC gamers on what they're playing, what they're looking forward...
Last month, EA gave away free copies of Dead Space on Origin. Today, they've made Battlefield 1942 free. Like before, there's no catch. Simply add the game to your cart and checkout, and it'll be added to your digital library forever. This is the second free game from EA's new On the House program.
Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition was a bad port of a brilliant game. Dark Souls 2, on the other hand, is a well-made PC port (even super-modder Durante thinks so). But just hearing that isn't enough: how much better does it look on PC than on consoles?
From the Aztecs worrying about the sun disappearing from the sky, to Hollywood's endless variations on the end of the world, it seems like every civilisation is fascinated with the idea that it might be the last. Perhaps it's a sign of humanity's general narcissism, with each generation secretly...
Hatsune Miku to join Lady Gaga concerts SN 05:30PM PDT Apr 17, 2014
Popular Japanese vocaloid mascot Hatsune Miku is joining Lady Gaga to open her ARTPOP Ball concerts. For the unfamiliar, she’s a singing synthesizer that's represented as a 16 year old girl with turquoise hair. Sega publishes numerous games starring her and other vocaloids.
The PS4 sold more than the Xbox One or any other console in March – making it the hardware leader for the third consecutive month – market research group NPD reports. The Xbox One and PS4 pushed US hardware sales in March up 78 percent from 2013, from $222 million to $395 million.
PAX East’s designated indie games fiefdom was, unsurprisingly, overflowing with interesting projects. Secret Ponchos. Gods Will Be Watching. Subnautica. Not A Hero. Below. Many of the other games on display were known quantities that we’d either played previously or are playable now in a...
Forget trying to make the Citizen Kane of games, that's been done. Indie dev Broken Window Studios has its sights set on a far weirder goal. They want their horror game, Grave, to deliver the same discombobulating sense of strange as David Lynch's weirdo classic Eraserhead.
After an initial outing on PC which was barely serviceable—rendering at 1024x720, locked at 30 FPS with unusable mouse controls—From Software and Namco Bandai have a lot to prove with this sequel. For Dark Souls 2, PC was reportedly considered a major target platform from the start.
There's been no shortage of debate concerning the ongoing "war" between Microsoft and Sony in the battle for the living room. One argument that constantly makes the rounds is the fact that right now, more PlayStation 4 games run in 1080p than they do on Xbox One.
Gamers Honest Truth claims to have received word from sources close to Activision that the Xbox One edition has been pushed back. The site also says that its Amazing Spider-Man 2 Xbox One pre-order has been cancelled by a local EB Games outlet. The rumour is given legs by the fact that the Xbox One...
