What’s better: seasonal events, or dynamic snow?

Last time, you decided by a narrow margin that becoming overpowered is better than a chunky manual. With no chunky manual to teach you a game’s systems, I guess you’ll be busy experimenting with that for a while. This week, I’ve had a queer fancy to (for once) make you pick between things which have absolutely no connection. What’s better: seasonal events, or dynamic snow? I know, it’s a bit of a silly choice, but hey, it’s the last week of work before Christmas, let’s goof off. Read more

VG247’s The Best Games Ever Podcast – Ep.11: Best game that you were ridiculously hyped for as a teen

Teenage independence brought with it the chance to shape our own gaming futures. Goodbye England’s rose May you ever grow in our hearts You were the grace that placed itself Where lives were torn apart You called out to our country And you whispered to those in pain Now you belong to heaven And the stars spell out your name As the news of Diana’s death forced itself into the homes of everyone in Great Britain, royalist tears flooding the carpets and dampening the underside of sofas, some people had other things on their minds. It takes a lot to…

An extremely thorough grading of the best rain in video games

In the giant jumbled word cloud of all my qualities and traits, I’m willing to bet that “pluviophile” would be one of the biggest words. I adore rain. Whenever it starts, I tend to drop whatever I’m doing – work, dishes, significant other – and I’ll be out frolicking in the downpour before they’ve hit the floor. Because I love rain so much, I hold games to an almost unfair standard when it comes to the simulation of precipitation. How in the world can a videogame come close to emulating that wonderful, transcendental feeling of being outside in the middle…

The Revamped PS Plus Lineup Is Stacked, Once You Make Sense Of It

Doom Eternal is finally getting its ray tracing update

Doom Eternal is finally getting its long-awaited ray tracing and DLSS update, Nvidia announced today, and they even released some lovely new ray traced footage of the game running in 4K. The shiny, realistic lighting tech has been teased and hinted at for absolutely ages, but in the run-up to the game’s launch last March, it quickly became apparent that its ray tracing support would arrive much later than planned. Happily, the new footage looks lovely, what with all those plasma beam reflections bouncing off the glass walls and polished metal floors, but honestly, when you’re ripping and tearing at…

The 9 best bugs in PC games

The Oxford English dictionary describes a bug as: “a sort of computer oops”. It is the result of errant coding, mismatched texture, wonky physics or (sometimes) a briefcase. Developers must fight bugs day and night to safeguard the digital realms we call our playgrounds. Sometimes they lose that battle and a bug comes stomping ravenously into our game, ready to upset us. But sometimes that bug is not an annoyance or a game-breaker, but instead the funniest thing to ever happen. Here are 9 of the best bugs in PC gaming. Read more
