Star Wars Battlefront 2 was the most popular game of E3, according to YouTube

Subscribe to PCGamesN on YouTube If YouTube views are an indicator of popularity, then Star Wars Battlefront 2 was the most popular game at E3 this year, surprisingly. By quite a wide margin.  Mosey on over here for all of PCGamesN’s E3 2017 coverage. I say surprisingly only because this has been a banner year for E3. There’s been an abundance of impressive-looking titles across all platforms, and some flashy trailers and demos to boot. …

Nidhogg 2 is a more violent, more colourful successor to the indie duelling game

Now it’s getting a sequel, and it looks pretty different. The footage above is from the PS4 version, but it’s also coming to PC.  While you’re here, check out the best indie games on PC. The most obvious difference is that the minimalist aesthetic …

Dauntless developer says he’s ‘super excited’ about Monster Hunter: World

Dauntless has often been described, including by us, as being a lot like Monster Hunter. In fact, Tom called it “the PC Monster Hunter game we’ve all been waiting for” in his January hands-on. So when an actual Monster Hunter game was announced at E3, the potential for awkwardness was clear. But the developers of Dauntless are taking it in stride: Executive producer Jesse Houston told Polygon that he’s “super excited” about Monster Hunter: World, …

We have mixed feelings about BioWare’s Anthem

We got , Anthem, at the Microsoft E3 press conference earlier this week. There’s reason to be excited: here’s a new shared world shooter just around the corner, and it’s one of the best-looking games from the show, with ferns, and mud, and murky rivers crowding a dense jungle world, while mountains tease us in the distance.  We all know not to trust E3 trailers, but even so, just five years ago Anthem would’ve been …

You can connect eight Turtle Beach wireless headsets to one PC. Because of the Xbox

Turtle Beach’s Stealth 600 and Stealth 700 headsets will be the first to launch using Microsoft’s Xbox wireless tech to connect. And they’ve had eight of them running from a single Xbox controller dongle… I guess it was a slow day in the Turtle Beach office. Read more: the best gaming headsets available today. Ostensibly they’re console-focused cans but, because they’re using the same connection as the Xbox One’s wireless controller, us PC people can …

Hands-on: Destiny 2 running at 4K is one of the prettiest PC games ever

Destiny 2 is the best-looking PC game I saw at E3. I’m more than a little surprised to write that—after all, the first game didn’t even make it off consoles. Hell, Bungie hasn’t even had a game on PC since Halo 2. I expected, at best, a workmanlike console port with a few more bangs and whistles around the edges. But not only is Destiny 2 the best-looking PC game I saw at E3, it’s …
