Our favourite games of 2021 so far

With 2021 marching on at a seemingly impossible pace, we thought it was high time we sat down in our virtual Treehouses to chat about the best games of the year we’ve played so far. 2021 has been an odd year for games. The first few months were front-loaded with some big meaty hitters after giving Cyberpunk 2077 a wide berth at the end of last year, while others have been pushed back even further into the depths of 2022. Indeed, a lot of the games we’re really looking forward to in 2021 are still hovering away on the horizon,…

Resident Evil Village crack significantly improves performance, and Capcom is promising a fix

By Sherif Saed 15 July 2021 12:41 GMT Resident Evil Village does indeed run better when you crack it.Earlier this week, it came to light that Resident Evil Village‘s implementation of the anti-piracy DRM Denuvo (as well as Capcom’s own DRM layer) are the main reasons behind the game’s constant stuttering on PC.Watch on YouTubePirates said that using a crack eliminates all of these problems, and they have been proven right. Digital Foundry put these claims to the test, and found that DRM is indeed the cause of Village’s troubles on PC. The tech outlet’s latest video, seen above, demonstrates…

Resident Evil Village PC crack fixes shuttering issue, claims hacker

By Dom Peppiatt 13 July 2021 10:50 GMT It turns out that Resident Evil Village‘s DRM may be causing its stuttering issues on PC, and a hacker believes cracking the software completely fixes the issues.One of the biggest bugs that has been affecting the PC version of Resident Evil Village since its launch on the platform is its traversal stutter, caused by moving through the level or triggering certain events, such as zombie kills. Only by turning off ray-tracing could you mitigate the stutter (which causes huge frame drops fairly often in the game), and even then it wouldn’t eliminate the…

Resident Evil’s Nemesis is coming to Dead By Daylight

Like a giant Katamari made of scabs and jump scares, Dead By Daylight has collected another classic horror fiend to stalk its servers. The upcoming Resident Evil chapter will, unsurprisingly, bring the Umbrella Corp’s Nemesis to the multiplayer horror game. The new beast won’t be turning up on his own, though. Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine will be added as survivors for the meat-weapon-gone-rogue to chase. The ghastly collab was announced to celebrate Dead by Daylight’s fifth anniversary. The asymmetric multiplayer game, where teams of survivors try and outlast a singular enemy during a round, is packed with classic…

Resident Evil Village Varcolac Alpha | And two other optional bosses you might have missed

By James Billcliffe 17 May 2021 13:56 GMT Hiding around every corner in Resident Evil Village is a secret waiting to be discovered. And while there’s plenty of clandestine loot to find, there are a few optional bosses, like the Varcolac Alpha and giant, axe-wielding butcher brothers, to hunt down too. These tough opponents either appear in their own new spaces, or to punish you for being too comfortable backtracking through areas you thought were safe. Here’s where you can tango with a few of the optional bosses in Resident Evil Village you might have missed. Watch on YouTubeResident Evil…

We’ve been doing The Weekspot for the best part of nine months now. In that time, there’s been weeks where either the big releases have dried up, or the news has been lacking a little oomph.

The cheapest places to find Resident Evil Village for PC, in the US and UK

Resident Evil Village: the best settings to improve your PC’s performance

Resident Evil Village is finally here, continuing the story of Ethan Winters from Resident Evil 7 as he finds himself trapped in a bleak, wintry landscape full of tall vampire ladies, snarling wolf boys and more horrible nasties than you can shake an Umbrella-shaped stick at. It’s also one of the best-looking PC games of the year by my reckoning, especially if you happen to own a ray tracing-capable graphics card. It runs supremely well, but it can start to chug a bit if you exceed your graphics card’s memory limit. To help you get the best performance in Resident…
