Under the 'Performance' header? That's The Signal from Tolva, a beautiful, sandbox-y, robot-y playground :)

What it’s like to discover PC's greatest games for the first time, in 2017What it’s like to discover PC's greatest games for the first time, in 2017

I'm looking forward to more articles like these. It's great to hear the perspective of someone open-minded, but honest as far as their impressions of it without looking at it through the lens of time. I feel like this gives you the potential to find the "truth" of a game more than most.

As someone who enjoys old games, I always try to differentiate between games that were only good for the time v. ones that really hold up now, even with their flaws. I can absolutely understand where Half-Life has lost its spark compared against modern games. I hope you get to Deus Ex and System Shock 2!

I'd still say just don't report on it unless you have something to report. I mean as evidence goes, I'll see yours and raise you this:

Ha, yeah I remember that. Different game and circumstances though, and in this case you've got good journos and a reliable tipster all saying it's happening.


Given we report on rumours for other games if the source seems credible, at this point we wouldn't really be doing our jobs if we didn't do so for Destiny 2, especially as it'll probably be huge.


Anyway, shouldn't be long now until we know for sure. If it doesn't happen, come back here and mock me.

I hate articles like this. How about not announcing console-exclusives until they're confirmed to be anything else? I'm on a PC. The whole reason I come to this site is so I don't have to hear about games I can't play.Reply
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

I understand, which is why we wouldn't cover it if it weren't looking likely. Kotaku are prepared to go so far as to outright confirm it.


Check out our EWK for the evidence:

The thing is it's so close to what ACTUAL reviews have stated about the game, to the point where it almost wouldn't be parody. I can tell it is, but if this was on somepalce like Kotaku, it would be a case of Poe's Law.

I guess this is a parody? Bioshock, a game so well known even non-gamers have heard of it being called a hidden gem, praising it as one of the best PC action game and not even MENTIONING system shock 2, I feel like it must be.

The satire is a little too subtle I think, because this is already in an industry where the stereotype of reviewers can be people who've barely played any games being qualified to review them, it's easy enough to mistake this as real. It's not what I expect of pcgamesn necessarily, but the situation really can be that bad that the public can think reviewers will have this little context of what they're reviewing.Reply

Something like that. It's not the first time they've tried comedy. I haven't laughed yet. Not sure why they're wasting their time trying to make it funny either, this isn't really a comedy site - I don't visit for the lulz. The writer obviously wanted to talk about Bioshock, fine by me. But this doesn't even say anything new it just tries to put a funny frame on it and it falls flat - again.

Forget 2nd year, I'd like to see end-of-life plans. Knowing that whether the company is supporting it or not, there will still be a way to play the game you bought after the company shuts the server down.

"If you’re a GTA Online fan there’s no need to panic as the end of the line won’t be soon for the multiplayer mode" So in other words, wait a year THEN they'll kill it. It's still an awful practice to design the game so that it has to die later when they kill the company server.

You're listing "VR Direct" in the header graphic. Is there ANY news on Auto Stereo from Nvidia? What they announced in 2014 for converting 3D Vision games to VR?Reply
Phil Iwaniuk Avatar

I don't *think* it was mentioned at the 1000 series reveal. VR headsets, drivers, accompanying hardware etc have changed so much since 2014 I'm inclined to think they're burying that idea.

Yeah I'm definitely getting one, but I need to wait for a lot of reviews first. Also Asus and Gigabyte both reported as having 1440p solutions by the first half of 2016, it will be worth seeing what they have also.
