PC Gamer weekly round-up

The big news this week was a surplus of information on Crysis 3 - but it's stealth action FPS Dishonored that creeped in and impressed us with its old-school open-ended sensibilities. Elsewhere, our hopes for STALKER 2 were finally and tragically squashed, but new tidbits of information just might have slipped out about Half-Life 2: Episode 3.

We also took a closer look at Sniper Elite: V2, Guild Wars 2, Microsoft Flight, and TERA. Read on for a full list of this week's biggest stories.


1000 Amps review

Duncan Geere at

If you’re a member of the camp of gamers who believe that the answers to puzzles should never be signposted, and that modern games are way too easy, then you’re going to like 1000 Amps.

You play as a cute lil’ icon called Plug (no relation to the Bash Street Kid) who is attempting to repair a set of electrical stations called the Amp- Tree-System. In each room, you can light up a number of squares by touching them, and when you’ve lit them all, that part of the system is repaired. As you light these squares, you’re given more power – enabling you to jump and teleport. Most of the puzzles rely on using that gradual increase in power to enable you to access more and more lightsquares in each room.
