“we get hit by an avalanche of exciting new pc games”

You never know exactly what you’re going to get from one E3 to the next. Some years it’s all about the consoles and their incredibly polished, massively expensive first-party offerings. Other years – 2019 is one of them – we get hit by an avalanche of exciting new PC games. Let’s run down the list. There’s Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red’s impressive new RPG. There’s Baldur’s Gate III, the surprise next game from Divinity: Original Sin 2 developer Larian Studios. And there’s Doom Eternal, id’s clever continuation of everything that made 2016’s Doom reboot one of the best shooters of recent years. It’s a great year to be a PC gamer.

the pc gaming show

PC Gamer returned to Los Angeles for the annual PC Gaming Show on June 10, which is still the only major E3 event completely dedicated to PC gaming. Held at the beautiful Mayan Theater, it featured almost two hours of interviews, trailers, gameplay footage, and exclusive reveals. Rebellion showed off the first trailer for Evil Genius 2, a sequel to the cult strategy sim which lets you become a Bond-style supervillain. We also served up the first in-game footage of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, a sequel to the vampire RPG. Chucklefish revealed its space colony management game, Starmancer, and Tripwire Interactive unleashed the first ever trailer for the brutal-looking medieval brawler Chivalry 2, which includes castle sieges and large battles. Klei, the studio behind Don’t Starve, revealed more about its next…

the spy

Hideo Kojima is someone who revels in secrecy just as much as The Spy does. After leaving Konami back in 2015 and founding his own company, Kojima Productions, he sailed down from the rafters to unveil Death Stranding as a PS4 exclusive at E3 2016, before once again disappearing in a cloud of smoke. The perfect heist for the attention of millions. PART OF IT IS THE JAPANESE GAMING INDUSTRY’S REDISCOVERY OF PC GAMING While Kojima went back to work on his game in peace, and people analysed every scrap of information from the trailer’s throat baby to photos of his breakfast on Twitter, the years passed and we learned to appreciate the fluidity of the word ‘exclusive’. Part of it is the Japanese gaming industry’s rediscovery of PC gaming, resulting in…

ISSUE 203, August 2009 ON THE COVER Star Wars: The Old Republic IN THE CHARTS Bulletproof – La Roux 1 Here’s a secret: we want you to buy our magazine. And sometimes that desire leads to, let’s say, some enthusiastic cover hits. So when we claimed that Star Wars: The Old Republic was “The Warcraft killer”, it was simply an optimistic guess. In our defence, 1) Star Wars: The Old Republic was an incredibly exciting prospect, and 2) holy crap, look at that cover art! 2 Indie games! After the release of Braid, Audiosurf, World of Goo and more in 2008, Alec Meer meets the “maverick heroes” of PC gaming. 3 Tom Francis takes a deep dive into Deus Ex’s first level. This is a classic PC Gamer feature, running down the many, many paths through Liberty Island,…
