SSD
When most people think of PC storage, they think of the jolly ol’ mechanical hard-drive. Whap it into your computer, save all your stuff on it, and have a grand time. Plenty of people also think of the faster, quieter, ...   read

Steam Controller
Valve has released a beta build for its newest Steam Controller update, and somehow it’s managed to cram even more customisation options into an already almost overloaded pad. The Activator Update’s patch notes ar...   read

Hardware
While E3's generally all about the games, this year we saw a pretty big turnout for hardware too: video cards, new consoles, and of course more virtual reality than we really know what to do with. So here's a roundup of all t...   read

Scorpio
[Update: the full interview where Spencer's quote can be seen has now been published on Eurogamer. We have updated the information below to reflect this.] Microsoft threw us for a loop a bit when it announced not one, but two...   read

The Surge
  Watch Video We've known about The Surge for a while now. Developed by Lords of the Fallen's Deck13 and published by Focus Home Interactive, it attempts to take the Dark Souls formula of high difficulty and involved combat and push it into a sci-fi world instead. The PC Gaming Show at E3 gave us this tiny small glimpse at the game, which you can see in the trailer up top.   read

Day of Infamy
  Watch Video New World Interactive, the developer of the popular tactical FPS Insurgency, have announced their second game, due to be released on Steam Early Access next month. Day of Infamy appears to take Insurgency's tactical, unforgiving shooting, and rams it into a World War 2 setting. I'm a big fan of WW2 shooters, and so this just majorly grabbed my attention.   read

Turing Test
  Watch Video Bulkhead and Square Enix have released a trailer for The Turing Test, a sci-fi first person puzzler, at E3's PC Gaming Show. The game aims to realistically imagine what life on Europa would be like, which somehow seems ...   read

Observer
  Watch Video Here's a very short trailer for you. This is Layer of Fear dev Bloober Teams' Observer, a cyberpunk horror game that will see you play as an Eastern European policeman in a world where peoples' memories and fears can be...   read

Killing Floor 2
  Watch Video At the PC Gaming E3 show, a new trailer for Tripwire's Killing Floor 2 was dropped that details the brand new Bullseye update, which reintroduces the sharpshooter class back into the fight against murderous mutant clone...   read

Giant Cop
  Watch Video So here's a thing the PC Gaming Show at E3 has just dropped on us. Here's Giant Cop, a VR game by Other Ocean where you play as a cop who can throw criminals into the sea where they belong. Except the cop that is also a giant. A giant cop, if you will. Giant Cop will be coming for the Oculus Rift at some point in 2016.   read

Klei
  Watch Video At the E3 PC Gaming Show, Klei Entertainment announced Oxygen Not Included. Other than it being a 2D "colony simulation game", we know literally nothing about it. If Klei's previous titles Mark of the Ninja and Don't Starve are anything to go on, a lot of cute cartoon people will probably die horribly. Here's hoping we'll hear more about it soon!   read

Sea of Thieves
  Watch Video Rare gave us a first look at Sea of Thieves, their upcoming pirate-em-'up for Xbox One and Windows 10 at the Microsoft E3 conference, with both a cinematic trailer and a first look at some gameplay. The gameplay video you ca...   read

Xbox One Controllers
  Watch Video In its E3 conference, Microsoft just announced a whole new scheme that will allow you to customise your Xbox One controller with a ton of different colours for every part of the pad. Dubbed the Xbox Design Lab, the scheme let...   read

OSVR HDK 2

Forza Horizon 4
Yeah, it's another leak. According to NerdLeaks, a site known for its insider information, Forza Horizon 3 is due to be announced at the Microsoft E3 press conference. Horizon 3 is apparently going to be set in Australia...   read

Xbox One S
[Update: NerdLeaks, a site known for its numerous and accurate leaks, claims that the Xbox One S will be the first thing to be announced in Microsoft's E3 conference later today. It'll also be priced at a pretty dang low...   read

Grow Up
Ubisoft’s E3 conference is only a few hours away, but that’s more than enough time for a few good ol’ fashioned leaks to come in. According to the PEGI ratings board, Ubisoft has had a title called Grow Up rated for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Interestingly, the listed release date is today: June 13.   read

The Legend of Zelda
It’s only a few days now until we finally get a decent look at The Legend of Zelda for Wii U and the NX at E3, but Amazon’s accidentally released some new concept art of the game. It’s not much, only showing...   read

Mass Effect
  Watch Video Bioware took to the stage at the EA Play event to show off some neat development footage of Mass Effect: Andromeda. The game will be the first in the series to run on EA’s own Frostbyte engine, and as such the trailer&...   read

God of War 4
  Watch Video [With Sony's E3 event just around the corner now, it's worth taking a look at this leak again. Do you think we could be seeing Kratos go against the entire Norse pantheon at E3?] If a rumour on NeoGAF is to be believed, Krato...   read

HTC Vive
Saying VR got off to a “rocky start” is kind of like saying the surface of Pluto is “a bit nippy”. Both the Vive and the Rift have been plagued by stock shortages and delays, leaving plenty of people u...   read

Overwatch
  Watch Video Since it launched a couple of weeks ago, the entire internet has been unable to talk about anything but Overwatch for more than thirty seconds. We try, honestly we do, but then it all just bursts forth like a geyser. Unfortu...   read

Mirror's Edge Catalyst
  Watch Video Mirror’s Edge is my jam. It was one of the first Xbox 360 games I really fell in love with, and since then I’ve clocked hundreds of hours across the 360 and the PC versions speedrunning, doing time trials, trying ...   read

Stratus XL
Before Microsoft rocked up with Games for Windows, PC controllers were like the Wild West: support was spotty, controllers were often low quality, and getting them set up involved a lot of faffing and jiggery-pokery. There wa...   read

Battleborn
When Battleborn launched a few weeks ago, the response was uh… muted, to say the least. At best it’s an okay FPS-MOBA hybrid, at worst it’s not much more than a wet fart in a lift. It’s also leaking players like there’s no tomorrow, despite the price being slashed by almost half so soon.   read

Overwatch
  Watch Video Here’s something cute to kick off your week: Blizzard has created fan art of a young girl’s Overwatch original character, after the father shared it on Twitter.   read

Fallout 4
I don’t know about you, but I thought Fallout 4 was a thoroughly disappointing experience. There’re too many problems to list with it, but sat atop that pile is a big, adorable, scrap metal one: I can’t slee...   read

World of Warcraft
World of Warcraft’s been out for over a decade now, and the newest expansion Legion is on the horizon. New expansions are always a good time to get into an MMO, and I’ve personally been wandering around Azeroth as...   read
