What are the best PC games to look forward to in 2020? It's always nice to have something to look forward to, and games are no different. Most of us know which games are right around the corner, but here are all the biggest and best games which are releasing on PC in 2020.
We’ve been talking for some time now about how Borderlands 3 would likely end up being a watershed moment for the Epic Games Store and it appears Gearbox’s shooter may well have ended up the game which broke the Epic Store hoodoo.
UPDATE: The US' Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has weighed in on the recent ruling from the UK Parliament's Digital, Culture, Media, an Sport (DCMS) committee, saying it strongly disagrees with the finding. The DCMS came to the conclusion that paid loot boxes should be regulated as gambling and warned that games which feature loot boxes aimed at children should be banned.
GOG continues to ring the changes for GOG Galaxy 2.0’s best client, showcasing the new ‘Atlas’ update with a raft of new features which is really beginning to elevate the client above and beyond Steam in certain areas. 
DRM. Once the big bogeyman of gaming until the Epic Store rocked up and redirected the frothing hordes to another target for their ire. But DRM is, and always will be, a negative for the consumer. There are no positives to the end user for DRM being used on a game they’ve purchased. There are literally no scenarios in which someone could wish a game they owned had DRM patched in; it’s just not a thing.
Discord has just put the final nail in the coffin of its short-lived game storefront. As of October, all games contracted to appear in the Nitro Games catalogue will not be renewed and will cease to be playable through the service. 
I’m a big fan of the Yakuza series, although I have to admit I was more than a little taken aback to discover Yakuza 7, or Yakuza: Like a Dragon as it’s now known, is throwing out the action-packed beat-em-up hijinks in favour of turn-based combat. It’s Yakuza meets Dragon Quest and it’s basically the answer to my dreams.
Borderlands 3, one of the biggest launches of the year, has arrived today, although it's been far from plain sailing. There have been reports of performance struggles, DirectX 12 woes, and all sorts of issues on top of that pesky Epic Games Store exclusivity which will put a few off.
We’ve got a couple of Endless Space goodies today for those of you who’ve thought about dominating the great beyond but have yet to take that giant leap for mankind.
It sounds as if Borderlands 3 has launched today with completely busted DirectX 12 support. Users are reporting firing up the game in DX12 mode either takes a couple minutes to hit the menu screen or gets stuck loading up Borderlands 3 for eternity. 
Six months on from its launch, Anthem has now officially sunk to the bottom of the barrel. BioWare’s co-op action-RPG has now moved into Electronic Arts’ Origin Access ‘Basic’ tier subscription service and can now be played for as little as $5/£4 per month.
