Dark Souls will run at 60 FPS on PC, developer confirms

PC gamers don't ask a lot. We want a game with graphics settings that we can control, keys and other controls that we can customize, and to not have our framerates limited to 30 FPS. Whenever a studio announces that a game will be locked to 30 FPS, PC gamers tend to go a bit crazy. That's exactly what happened when a representative from Bandai Namco delivered the bad news about Dark Souls 3.

Diablo II gets patched to run on latest versions of Windows and OSX

Diablo II gets patched to run on latest versions of Windows and OSX

Back in 2000, Blizzard released one of my favorite games of the early 2000's. I'm talking, of course, about Diablo II. Since Blizzard changed the way that character data was stored for online play, the game became one of the most popular online multiplayer games for a very long time. In fact, people still play it to this day. But there are plenty of problems for those who want to play it, as the game hasn't been updated since 2011. At least that was the case until recently.

Valve is known for a lot of different things. Their popular Steam platform, releasing games on their own schedule, and their inability to count to 3, among other things. Well, fans of the Portal series should be excited to hear that Valve is releasing a new entry into the series. But don't expect to see the number 3 attached to it.

Must-Have PC Games of 2016

Must-Have PC Games of 2016

While I tend to keep up with the latest console releases, I'm a PC gamer at heart. I like having a good computer with a nice screen that's going to play games with the graphics turned up as high as I can get them. I also like how easy it is to find games on the cheap, thanks to Steam sales, Humble Bundle specials, and countless others.

Baldur’s Gate gets first expansion in 18 years, later this month

Games today tend to be supported for a good year or two before the studios move onto the next big thing. You'll get a few good pieces of DLC, maybe something even expansion-sized, if you're really lucky. But then you have games like Baldur's Gate that are still getting content nearly two decades later.

No Man’s Sky will make you learn new alien languages

If you've ever dreamed of exploring the vast openness of space, you're probably sad that we've yet to even send our first person to a neighboring planet. Thankfully, there are other ways of exploring new worlds, even if they're not real. Starting this summer, No Man's Sky will let you explore more planets than any other game that's out there, and you'll need to learn a few alien languages if you're going to get far.

Xbox’s Phil Spencer assuages fears of console, PC merger

Xbox’s Phil Spencer assuages fears of console, PC merger

Microsoft's announcement of Quantum Break's PC availability, and the eventual pull out of the game from the Windows Store, has been something of a mess. While it is great news (though not completely) for PC gamers, those on the Xbox side of the fence have started murmuring and questioning. Is Microsoft's stronger PC gaming push and its equally strong Windows 10 push on the Xbox a sign of troubling times for the console? Is Microsoft unifying the console and the PC? Phil Spencer says "no", though a bit ambiguously.

Far Cry 4’s map was reused in Primal, and Ubisoft should have embraced it

Back in 2013, Ubisoft made an interesting move with the Far Cry series. Far Cry 3 did incredibly well, and the team decided that they'd have some fun and make a stand-alone expansion for the game that took a completely different turn that we were used to. The result was a retro-futuristic game starring a cyborg named Rex "Power" Colt named Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

Eagerly awaited No Man’s Sky finally gets PS4, PC release date

Eagerly awaited No Man’s Sky finally gets PS4, PC release date

Gamers keeping track of low-key/indie titles are likely to have known about No Man's Sky for some time. First revealed in late 2013 by developer Hello Games, it's quite simply the most ambitious game we've seen in a very long time. Players are basically dropped into an open-world space exploration game that's procedurally-generated, meaning no two planets will ever be the same, and there's almost no limited to how many worlds there are. Well, actually there is: over 18 quintillion, to be exact.

Steam may discount bundles, based on the games you already own

Steam may discount bundles, based on the games you already own

Bundles are a great way to save money when you're buying games. Sometimes you'll find a deal that will put three our four games together for the price of one. But what about those times when you already own the game? If you're buying from Steam, this means that you won't get a spare key for the game you already own. Instead, you just miss out on that part of the deal. But that may be changing soon.
