Troubling GOG tweets, a fired CD Projekt employee, and the spectre of GamerGate

"Coming from the north-east, it's such a big mixing pot there - different genders, different sexualities, different cultures, different religions. I have no problem with it. My favourite shows are RuPaul's Drag Race and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy."

Or..." I can't be homophobic, some of my friends are gay!"

Eurogamer Q&A: Win 1 of 5 limited edition PS4 Pros!

Ed6445

1 month ago

My favourite PlayStation moment was when I got ICO and Ace Combat 04 for my birthday, many moons ago. Going from playing a moody, quiet and thoughtful game to a very silly, adrenaline-fuelled arcade flight sim in the space of a few minutes was great fun. Especially as I also got Advance Wars on the GBA. Certainly beats the socks I get for birthdays these days!

Where have all the World War 1 and 2 flight sims gone?

Ed6445

2 months ago

As a fan of flight sims, I can safely say they're alive and well. The IL2 Great Battles series and DCS World both have thriving communities, and FSX/P3D has an entire cottage industry of developers bringing out some remarkably detailed addons. All three offer WW2 aircraft, and IL2 recently launched the Flying Circus module, which adds WW1 aircraft.

Nvidia offers free SSDs with GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1060 graphics cards

Funnily enough I got the 240gb ssd and the EVGA 1060 last week, though luckily I only spent about a tenner more than the offer so I won't beat myself up! The 1060 is fantastic - the EVGA card is tiny but the cooler is amazing, it's really quiet with temps staying nice and cool even in more demanding games. Plus it's revitalised my rather ancient machine, so I'm a happy man!

Video games and the power of winter

The first time I really felt the cold of winter in a video game was the original Metal Gear Solid. Footprints in the snow that your enemy could follow, the very warm clothing the enemies wore and the mist from their breath really transmitted the biting cold of the Arctic setting.

A miserable demise of a once-great studio, echoing Bioware. Dead Space 1 and 2 were clever action-horror games that did things differently (never played 3, but I gather it was EA'd, as it were) - it's a shame we won't see another like the first two.

This is actually a great idea. I effectively treat Ass Creed as a historical tourism simulator (acknowledging that there's a fair bit of artistic license) so this is a nice addition. Now for them to create a mode that lets you turn off the same five identical enemies constantly interrupting your journey through the city.
