And so it is, with the annual arrival of FIFA, we enter the silly season. Every games publisher under the sun decides to release their games at the exact same time, seemingly with some inside knowledge that our pockets are far deeper than they actually are. We’ve got some absolute behemoths dropping on PC over the next 10-12 weeks, but which are going to succeed and which will be squashed by the competition? [More]

I know I should be once bitten, twice shy and all that, but I think I can feel myself being suckered into Watch Dogs 2 all over again. Don’t let us down Ubisoft. The new Watch Dogs 2 story trailer is out and it’s all kinds of slick, delving into insidious Blume corporation and getting to grips with Marcus Holloway and his hacking crew. [More]

There are few surer bets in the world of gaming than Grand Theft Auto 6. GTA 5 has shifted 65 million units and counting, and still consistently sits near the top of the bestseller charts. Take-Two execs will have been leaning on Rockstar to get it out as quickly as possible. As hyped as gamers are for Red Dead 3, Rockstar will be lucky if it sells even a quarter of GTA 6. [More]

Who runs Bartertown? No, I mean, it's a serious question. Because, obviously, we hear Auntie mumbling that Master Blaster runs Bartertown, but could you imagine him/them actually trying to get anything done other than getting everyone to pay them lip service? Perhaps not. [More]

They might not be the most glamorous of things, but we’ve all got a few of them lying around. Usually handed out in goody bags for no reason, all branded up. I’m talking about the humble mouse mat. The cosy rest for your rodent friend. The sturdy base which forms the cornerstone of your CSGO performance. Or not, as the case may be. I’m sure some of you heathens even go mousemat-less. [More]

We knew already that Ubisoft had opted to skip a new Assassin’s Creed game in 2016, choosing instead to invest in doing a reboot of sorts for the franchise. We’d automatically assumed that meant a holiday 2017 arrival, trading years with Watch Dogs. It turns out that may not be the case as Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has said in a new interview that Assassin’s Creed ‘Empire’ may not be ready in time for a 2017 launch. [More]

While I’m sat here with my poxy SSHD, Samsung is making some incredible gains in the world of SSDs. It’s just unveiled its next generation of M.2 PCIe SSDs - the Samsung 960 Pro and the 960 Evo.

I feel like Titanfall 2's just sort of crept up on us. It's out in about five weeks (October 28th) but has been totally overshadowed by the presence of Battlefield 1. For those after a faster-paced, more skill-based shooter then Titanfall 2 could well be the way to go this year, particularly after Respawn took on board so much of the feedback from the recent beta tests. Crucial to the Titanfall 2 experience is playing at a rock solid 60 frames per second for that competitive advantage though. For that you're going to need to tweak the graphics settings to suit your rig. Here's what you can mess around with in Titanfall 2. [More]
