Apparently, Tomb Raider: Legend wasn’t the reboot we all thought it was. It looked like one, it played like one and, if you were creepy enough to check, it even smelled like one. But according to developer Crystal Dynamics, it was merely their interpretation of the series as it was back in 2006. Instead, 2011’s Tomb Raider is the game that’s meant to totally reinvent the franchise. A new start, if you will. Lara Croft without the cruft. The most obvious change to the status quo is that Lara is now much younger, and yet to become the pistol-packing, one-woman extinction event for endangered wildlife and ancient gods that we all know and lust after. Rather than being an explorer, she’s a survivor, trapped on a mysterious island with more than a little Lost in its stones. She’s fighting to escape the dark tombs and traps, as opposed to confidently charging in to relieve them of their buried treasure.
My memories of Ultima Underworld are of an endless stream of delighted discoveries, an abject fear of what might lurk in the dim and tortuous tunnels, and of scribbling notes about which NPC wanted what item and which rune sequence created which spell. Jumping back into the sprawling dungeons of the Stygian Abyss today is gleefully exciting. But it’s also a tiny bit depressing, because I’ll never get to play it for the very first time again.
Steam is in the midst of an unprecedentedly huge sale. Literally hundreds of games have become stupidly cheap for ten days - too many to easily keep track of. I'm the kind of gamer who's actually bought things he already owns on Steam, just to have them on Steam, so I've been poring through all the offers to find the best. There are some clear winners, some absurd bargains, and some fairly obscure gems that are now close to free. These are my twenty picks of the best, cheapest stuff. Today's deals will only last till 6pm BST, 1pm EDT. The rest are all good till July 4th.
For reference, here's our list of the 100 games we think rule over all other PC games.
On our cover this month: master assassin Ezio, not quite managing to hide in plain sight. We were going to ask him to smile, but then we realised he has more knives than fingers, and thought better of it. The star of new Ezio is older, more experienced and deadlier than ever. Find out the truth that lies behind the beard in the massive feature on Assassin's Creed Revelations, in the latest issue of PC Gamer UK. It's not all about assassins, of course. This month we delve into Dwarf Fortress, chat to Bioware about writing The Old Republic, review all the latest releases and much, much more. Read on to discover the treasures hidden within the pages of our July issue.
PC gamers recoiled in horror when Jean-François Dugas, director of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, announced in an interview with Shacknews that Eidos Montreal is outsourcing the PC version of the classic PC game to a joint in the Netherlands called Nixxes. Dugas told Shacknews that the job both was and wasn't being done in-house, and then clarified that the job is a "partnership" with the Dutch studio. It's bracing news, especially for a game that's a cornerstone in the foundation of PC gaming. But while there's good reason to be concerned, there's also evidence that the decision might be a net positive for PC gamers and Deus Ex fans.
Every week, Richard Cobbett rolls the dice to bring you an obscure slice of gaming history, from lost gems to weapons grade atrocities. This week, he's busy cursing empty, yet surprisingly detailed threats at Bethesda for thinking a tutorial was a good place for giant spiders. GRR! But also... Skyrim! It's here, it's awesome, and you're probably playing it right now, aren't you? But here's something interesting you may or may not know - while it's officially The Elder Scrolls V, it's actually the seventh game set in its universe - not including expansion packs like Shivering Isles and Bloodmoon, or a set of mobile games for N-Gage and cellphones. Somewhere in the middle, two went missing - and their names are Battlespire and Redguard. What happened to these lost adventures?
