Subscribe to PCGamesN on YouTube Swery is known for making some very strange games. Deadly Premonition is pretty sincere in its portrayal of a cast of weirdos, but D4 went all-in on the insanity. The Good Life seems to be somewhere in the middle, with a zany cast of villagers that turn into either dogs or cats at night, depending on which version you buy. The protagonist ends up with the same ability, and now …

The Samsung Notebook 9 Pro is aiming for the middle, in a good way. Compared to other models we’ve tested recently that offer a high-resolution touchscreen display, a 360-degree hinge, a cool metal chassis, and even pen support, it’s carefully designed to offer a little bit of everything, with a few standout features: a discrete Radeon RX 540 GPU, an integrated S-Pen with special Samsung applications as well as Windows 10 inking compatibility, and impressively …

Good gaming journalism needs know-how

As I watched the video game character move back and forth on the screen, struggling and failing to make a simple jump, I couldn’t help but cringe. I was shocked to discover the identity of the player grappling with a game tutorial with so much difficulty was an “experienced” gaming journalist. Video game commentator and reviewer Dean Takahashi uploaded a 26-minute video to YouTube last month intended to act as a demo of the upcoming …

Games Inbox: What video game would make a good movie?

I’m not too impressed with the Tomb Raider trailer either. That actress is good in other things but the whole thing almost looks like a fan film, and that bit with the two pistols was super cheesy. It probably will be better than most video game movies, but I can’t see it being actually good compared to something else. Video game movies have two problems: they’re all rubbish as films themselves (usually because they have …

Forza Motorsport 7 is good, but it already feels outpaced by Project Cars 2

Racing games which lean towards the sim end of the spectrum are, every so often, taken to task for being a little dry. For driving game fans who aren’t happy unless they’re sideways in a bright red car – sliding under the flight path of a helicopter as fireworks explode around it in the permanently blue sky – worrying about camber, late apex lines, and throttle control, is anathema to fun.
