When we think of the cost of building a PC it’s often only the core components we consider. Which graphics card to get, or what motherboard to pair with your shiny new CPU. You know, all the essential stuff that you need a gaming PC up and running. Some, however, like going a bit above and beyond. They won’t be seen in a shirt and shorts, they want the full three-piece suit. PC’s souped with all sorts of cosmetics and accessories so everyone knows just how badass the hardware is inside.

There have been a number of DLCs for TW Warhammer and this time we look at the Total Warhammer Realm of the Wood Elves, which adds the pointy eared tree lovers to the map. They sit just over the mountain range to the south-west of the Empire's starting location. That region has a small bit of everything going on in terms of competing factions. So there's plenty to test your elves against should you choose to begin with them. [More]

Every day we’re creeping closer and closer to Tom Clancy o’clock and the launch of Ghost Recon Wildlands. I suspect it’s going to be quite a big deal, with Ubisoft doing all sorts to show off its co-op play, giant world map and open-ended missions. But what about if you just want to play Ghost Recon Wildlands on your own? After all, Ubisoft said The Division could be played on your own, but in truth it was a bit of a rubbish way to do it. Fortunately we’ve got a massive 20-minute new video of Ghost Recon Wildlands, showing off an entire mission played solo, from infiltration to evac. [More]

Hey, remember Take On Mars? That game that came out ages ago and let you explore Mars, founding a colony as you hummed Flock of Seagulls. Only it didn’t come actually launch on August 1st, 2013, that was just the Early Access version. If you’ve been waiting three and a half years for the final edition then I have some good news - Take On Mars is actually coming out! Yes! It’s out on February 9th and launching with a full single-player story campaign, Arma 3 developer Bohemia Interactive has announced. [More]

PC gaming is full of bargains, for those with the patience and know how to take advantage of it. Dirt cheap games are always going on sale for 90% off, while constant hardware revisions means you can pick up bargains just a year after a CPU or GPU is released. However, at times we do all like a little blowout, whether that be a top-of-the-line graphics card or an eye-popping new monitor. Something special which can really take your gaming experience to the next level. [More]

It’s come a bit out of left field but the upcoming Conan Exiles has all the signs of the next multiplayer survival smash hit. It’s definitely got the jank, on the basis of the latest trailer, but it’s hard to fault Funcom’s ambition with this one. Some truly massive monsters roam the lands of Conan Exiles. Pair this with gigantic player-made structures and real-time destruction and you have a recipe for disaster. [More]

Focus Home Interactive has announced a videogame adaptation of the Werewolf: The Apocalypse tabletop role-playing game. It’s being developed by Cyanide Studio and it’s set in the World of Darkness universe, the same universe shared by cult hit Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines. [More]

After Ubisoft went and royally ballsed up the Assassin’s Creed movie you’d be forgiven for feeling a little trepidation about what this ‘illustrious’ publishing house could crank out next. The Division movie hopefully won’t fall into the same trap as it’s got some stellar names surrounding it already. Ubisoft has announced Academy Award winner Stephen Gaghan will be writing and directing the post-disaster movie. His writing credits include Traffic and Syriana. On the downside though he is credited with Call of Duty: Ghosts’ plot. [More]

We've already seen all of the graphics options at our fingertips, now it's time to see just how good Halo Wars 2 looks. It's a DirectX 12 Windows Store exclusive from the brains at Creative Assembly. And it's also Halo on PC, which I guess is what we've been asking for, although we probably didn't imagine it would be quite like this. Master Chief or no Master Chief, Halo Wars 2 looks decent for a strategy RTS. If the Halo Wars 2 system requirements have you worried though, fear not. There are a fair few options to twiddle around with, and these comparison sliders let you know exactly what you may lose out on if you drop the graphics settings. [More]

A first-party Microsoft strategy game designed with console gamers in mind doesn't exactly sound like a recipe for success when it comes to Halo Wars 2, but when you take a moment to consider it's Total War developer Creative Assembly pulling the strings it becomes a lot easier to get excited. Not only do CA excel at delivering top-tier RTS games, they also have a knack for the graphically spectacular. Halo Wars 2 is a Windows Store exclusive packing DirectX 12 support and all the latest visual bells and whistles. Here's allo the video options and graphics settings so you can see precisely what can be tweaked. [More]

Ubisoft has taken the wraps off the third and final part of its Year One DLC for The Division. Last Stand will be arriving as update 1.6 and pits two teams of eight against one another in entirely new PvP Dark Zones. Each of the teams must capture and hold as many of the three encryption points as possible while fending off enemy player and AI attacks. Whoever meets the score goal first, or has the highest score at the end of 20-minute matches, wins. Simple. [More]
