Cyberpunk 2077 manages to be a top seller on Steam in 2021

A terrible beginning didn’t stop the RPG from CD Projekt Red from ultimately being successful. Kotaku reported some interesting tidbits from Valve’s recent stat dump for Steam, most notably that Cyberpunk 2077 quietly became a top seller in 2021. This might come as a surprise to many, as CD Projekt Red’s game has been controversial for being buggy and unfinished. That might be turning around, though. While the very top of the charts are populated by games like New World, Valheim, and Naraka: Bladepoint that generate revenue continuously even after someone starts the game, Cyberpunk managed to make the Silver…

Best of 2021: The Forgotten City, and James’ other GOTY picks

The *correct* Game of the Year choices, thank you very much I don’t know about you, but people keep saying to me there weren’t any great games this year. I’ll admit, there weren’t any generation-defining classics from the likes of Popstar, BadDog, or CD Projekt Red Dead Redemption 6. But genuinely, how could there be when Covid measures have contributed to more delays than even the merest hint of snow does to all UK public services? On top of that, it’s very easy to forget that access to the best places to play these games sucks harder than Kirby on…

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 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…
