Horror games are a curious thing. We’re paying good money to scare ourselves witless, potentially having a miserably grim time as we poke around decrepit cemeteries and mental asylums. In terms of games of this ilk, few were as pant soiling and oppressive as the original Outlast, a masterclass in creeping dread and powerlessness. Outlast 2 promises to do all this and then some when it drops next week. If the launch trailer is anything to go by, it’s going to be truly torturous…. [More]

I don’t know what I was expecting from Deck13’s The Surge, but it certainly wasn’t for the combat to be dynamic, versatile and fast paced. In the latest Combat Trailer for The Surge, we get a peek at what promises to be a highly technical combat system, one that revolves around well timed dodges, constant movement and sharply executed attacks. Factor in both horizontal and vertical attacks, and the ability to target and dismember specific limbs, grafting them onto your own body, and you have a recipe for a challenging experience which demands quick thinking.

A recent survey by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) raised some interesting questions. The ESA polled a number of players throughout 2016 in an effort to spot industry trends and understand why gamers were choosing to buy the games they are. What stood out to me was that the single over-riding reason why those polled bought games is because of the quality of the graphics. A massive 67% said it influenced the purchase of their games.

Micro Machines World Series is gearing up for a launch in June, yet Rockstar is attempting to throw the toys in the trash with the announcement of its Tiny Racers online expansion for Grand Theft Auto V. Grand Theft Auto Online - Tiny Racers is all the twee top-down racing you expect from a Micro Machines, fused with the physics based destruction of GTA V, and the carnage of its Cunning Stunts races.

Having forked out $60 for Total Warhammer last year, plus mountains of DLC, fans have no doubt been wondering what Creative Assembly has done to deserve their hard-earned cash with a sequel. The latest behind the scenes tries to answer that, explaining the concept behind Total War: Warhammer 2’s central conceit - the Great Vortex. [More]

Meatloaf would famously do anything for love, but Nier Automata’s director Yoko Taro has far simpler life goals. He would do anything for money. Including, it turns out, a total remake of the original Nier, which could well be greenlit after Nier Automata sold like gangbusters in the weeks since its launch. [More]

In a major case of sticking two fingers up to legitimate users, Valve is making major changes to DOTA 2. From May 4th, all players hoping to play in Ranked will have to register a unique phone number with their account. It’s being rolled into a matchmaking update which is designed to prevent cheaters and banned players from creating limitless additional accounts. [More]

There’s been an overwhelming number of leaks lately seeming to confirm Call of Duty: WW2 is very much a thing, as Activision looks to take the series back to its historical roots. I would hazard a guess Activision threw more than a passing glance over Battlefield 1’s way, hitting the reset button on its bestselling shooter franchise that had kind of reached its theoretical limit when we were fighting on one of Jupiter’s moons. We should know for sure soon though, with the official Call of Duty: WWII reveal expected to take place at some point this very weekend. [More]

If you’ve been using an older operating system then you’re probably all too aware there is no official driver support for either AMD Ryzen or Intel Kaby Lake outside of Windows 10. Intel confirmed as much back in September, while AMD admitted in February that Windows 10 was a must for Ryzen users. The driving force behind this move is that Microsoft is enforcing it in order to better ensure “maximum reliability.” If you were planning to get Intel Kaby Lake or AMD Ryzen, the message was simple - you will need Windows 10 in order to receive security updates. Not so anymore though, as the community has found a way to circumvent Microsoft’s lock and allow Windows Updates to operate as per normal in both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. [More]
