I haven’t really been one for CCGs (Collectible Card Games) over the years, but something happened when I picked up The Witcher 3 for a second time. The Gwent took hold. Before long I was spending hours scouring for new cards, battling innkeepers, and turning even the most sincere quest to save a dying child into an excuse for a card-off. Consider me a change man then, so it was with great interest I decided to the The Elder Scrolls: Legends beta a go. [More]

Painterly psychological horror game Layers of Fear is set to get a fresh coat of torment next week with the launch of its first expansion - Inheritance. The main game was all about poking around a creepy old mansion while your fragile mind melted away like watercolours down a drain, with twisted visions and jump scares aplenty. Layers of Fear: Inheritance is set to continue this horrific tale, putting the player in the shoes of the painter’s daughter, who turns up to the family mansion to uncover the truth. [More]

It’s always a source of amazement to me the breadth and quality of fan made content out there. With no money to be made, just a whole lot of love; players can create games on a scale which rival even the originals themselves. One in particular that's blowing my mind has just hit open beta. I’m talking about the long-lost StarCraft Universe, which was originally called World of StarCraft. After going silent for a while it’s being made available to all as an honest goodness StarCraft MMO wrapped up in the StarCraft II engine. [More]

I’m not going to lie to you, the last few weeks have been hot. Uncomfortably so, even. The prospect of playing games made all the more difficult by a heady haze, sweaty hell, and the sneaking suspicion that perhaps everyone outside is having more fun. It turns out they’re usually not. Mostly they’re heads down, grumbling about more Rattatas. [More]

Some daft twonk has apparently shelled out $2000 for a copy of No Man’s Sky. Physical copies of the PlayStation 4 version are reportedly out in the wild, with one enterprising eBay using putting a copy he’d nabbed up for auction. Somehow they chanced upon someone foolish enough to part with $2000 for the privilege. There's one born every minute. [More]

Ahhh, the Cossacks series. For strategy gamers kicking about over the turn of the century it no doubt holds a fond place in their hearts. It certainly does mine, although I doubt time has been kind. After more than a decade away it's back though with Cossacks 3. Similar in style to the classic Age of Empires games, Cossacks 3 is all about base building, resource gathering, and, most importantly, epic battles. Players have thousands of units at their fingertips, with Cossacks 3 placing the emphasis on Total War-style unit formations and terrain height advantages. It's out in September, but before you stride into battle see if your gaming PC is up to the task with the official Cossacks 3 system requirements. [More]

It’s taken a long time to come and bite it in the proverbial ass, but Nvidia has settled the class action lawsuit related to false advertising of its bestselling GeForce GTX 970 graphics card. Shortly after the card’s launch in late 2014, owners started to notice the GTX 970 wasn’t utilising the full complement of 4GB of GDDR5 video memory. This didn’t crop up in reviews, nor did it ever get mentioned in Nvidia’s advertising of the graphics card. [More]

I think we were all a little taken aback when we first laid eyes on the Prey reboot at E3 this year. Previously shown as Prey 2, it was an open-world sci-fi adventure set in a giant city under development at Human Head Studios. This was scrapped entirely, in favour of an Alien Isolation-style horror game set aboard a hulking space station. To answer why, and more, new developer Arkane Studios has unleashed a new trailer for Prey. [More]
