Four-way anime fighter crossover BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle confirmed for a Steam release

Subscribe to PCGamesN on YouTube It feels like just yesterday that the PC was a land forsaken by fighting games. Devoid of fisticuffs in the dark ages of the platform, we fashioned our own crude imitations, but nothing came close to the joys you could get at the arcades, and at your console-owning friends houses. But times have changed, and Arc System Works are truly spoiling us now. With BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, we’re effectively …

What’s going to be our game of the year?

Evan: OK everyone, let’s have a civil, sportsmanlike discussion about the PC games of 2017. All jabs at Mass Effect: Andromeda must be above the belt, and aimed directly at its poorly animated face. James: Thankfully it’s quite simple: it’s Hollow Knight. It’s everything I love in games: challenge propped up by excellent controls and character abilities that make traversing the huge map a joy. The level design is so subtle that it doesn’t rely …
