Has Hearthstone become too expensive to keep up with?

It’s a scenario that all but the richest Hearthstone players will be familiar with. There’s a hot new deck tearing up the ladder, but to play it you need to craft a powerful new legendary card. This time the deck is Tempo Rogue, the centerpiece of which is Prince Keleseth, a card that hardly saw any play before the recent nerfs to Fiery War Axe and Innervate. Time to grab my wallet and buy another …

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is 100 gigabytes, or 130 hobbits worth of floppy disks

Subscribe to PCGamesN on YouTube Middle-earth: Shadow of War is a pretty big game. In fact, the PC version’s file size is pushing 100GB, although console versions are smaller. But that’s just file size; which would have been meant nothing to Tolkein while he was devising his famous novels. Here’s our Middle-earth: Shadow of War PC Review. So in order to figure out how physically large Shadow of War is, we did some Important Maths™. …

A Case of Distrust is an adventure game made of silhouettes set in 1920s San Francisco

For a game that’s almost entirely driven by text, it’s surprising how evocative A Case of Distrust can be. Structurally it’s a pulpy, 1920s detective story set in smoky San Francisco. You’re a private eye who’s been off the beat for far too long, so instead of a bloody glove or a smoking gun, the game opens with you trying to use your sleuthing skills to convince your cat that there isn’t any food left …

Star Control: Origins development update: Combat beta due for series’ 25th anniversary

Subscribe to PCGamesN on YouTube Development seems to be going well on Stardock’s classic franchise reboot Star Control: Origins, at least according to this forum post from Stardock CEO Brad Wardell. Not quite as perfectly as hoped, though. The bad news is that due to no plan ever surviving contact with reality, the game isn’t going to be ready in time for the 25th anniversary of the original Star Control’s release. Fortunately, they’ve got something …

Stronghold 2: Steam Edition re-enables multiplayer servers dead since 2014
