For those who find respite in PC games, this year will bring comfort in the familiar. All the releases that have been confirmed for 2013 are either sequels to long-running series, or a reboot of classics.
The age of PC exclusives has been fading since the last few years, and this year’s releases has just StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, and SimCity from this category. Having said that, there are enough big releases across genres, to whet anyone’s appetite for PC gaming.
As we draw to the year’s close and are still alive (what’s up Mayans?), what’s better than using this time to find and play the best games of 2012? Well, a lot could be, but I am speaking from a gamer’s perspective.
Year 2012 saw some amazing titles come up, but what really made 2012 special were the awesome sequels to super-awesome franchises. Unsurprisingly, some of these sequels have made it to our list of 8 titles that rocked 2012. So, hold your breath as we unveil our super 8 for the year 2012!
So I had the wonderful opportunity of wandering around the most recent Eurogamer Expo at Earl’s Court, London last week. There were a surprising amount of fantastic games on show, a number of them also being the first time that consumers are able to play demos of them as well. Over the next week or so I’ll be listing off my experiences and opinions of a number of these great games, which will all eventually be making their way to PC.
A small note, however: I will not be covering Call of Duty: Black Ops II, I’m afraid. As a Call of Duty veteran, I’ve been so disappointed with Treyarch and Infinity Ward since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (and the whole Activision lawsuit debacle) that I cannot bring myself to stand in line to play it. Sorry guys and gals.
Hit the gap for my thoughts on Assassin’s Creed 3 and Hitman: Absolution
It used to be so simple. Ten years ago, you could walk into a gaming shop and find PC games taking up the majority of the space. PC games were all the rage, completely dominating sales – yes, it’s hard to believe. Today, the industry is split up into different sections; with the consoles becoming the forerunners.
However, there’s still a part of PC gaming which prospers greatly around the world. The Massive Multi-Player Online Role Playing Game.

If you’ve got a kid, you’ve probably noticed that they often usurp your smartphone in order to play Angry Birds (or at least, that’s what I hear). Personally, I hate people using my devices to play games because then I end up missing out on a significant chunk of the game. Fortunately, there’s a bunch of apps dedicated to children which might keep them from invading your favourite games.
Christmas is on the horizon and I imagine a lot of you are taking it easy this month –this is the perfect to kick back and enjoy the gaming bounties of this holiday season.
Today, I’d like to share with you the games I’ve been playing through recently. Catch up would be more apt though — I’m merely listing the highly rated games of just the past four months and it still makes for a fairly long list!
Microsoft has, for quite a while, been a key player in the gaming industry; PC Gaming is a thriving platform, and the Xbox 360 almost dominates the console space. Consequently, speculation was rampant on the subject of a possible handheld Xbox console, or some other venture into mobile gaming.
Microsoft’s answer came in the Windows Phone 7 platform, in the form of a dedicated Xbox Live application, accompanied with a very strong selection of titles. Below you will find a list of my personal favourites, all of which I would recommend to any Windows Phone owner.
One of the greatest functions of any computer is the ability to recreate situations, scenarios, and perform simulations. Since they became aimed at the consumer, aircraft simulator sales have been tremendous.
