“have we learned from our triumphs and mistakes?”

It was only when we began our research for this issue that I realised what an eventful decade it’s been. Within ten short years, our relationships with crowdfunding, esports, microtransactions, open development, and more have all fundamentally changed. Are things better now, or worse? Have we learned from our triumphs and mistakes? Does the future look bright or bleak? Perhaps, over the course of our feature, you’ll come to your own conclusions. All I know is, at the start of the decade I was working in a carpet shop, and now I’m the editor of the world’s greatest PC gaming magazine. Like I say, it’s been eventful.

the nuclear option

After leaving us hanging for years and driving the internet into an endless conspiratorial frenzy, Valve’s finally returning to the world of Gordon Freeman, though we won’t be playing the bespectacled physicist this time. Instead, Half-Life: Alyx is a virtual reality spin-off set between Half-Life and Half-Life 2, with the much chattier Alyx Vance stepping into the spotlight as she fights the Combine. Though a VR exclusive, Valve says it’s still a full Half-Life game, and it’s not the only one the team wants to make. INSTEAD OF A GRAVITY GUN, HOWEVER, THERE ARE GRAVITY GLOVES “Half-Life: Alyx is the largest game team we’ve had yet,” Valve designer Greg Coomer tells us. “About a third of the people on the project have worked on previous Half-Life games, some all the way back…

highs & lows

the spy

The Spy was all set to come storming into this page with a classic intro; a real barnburner of an opening statement that would have at once undermined and reinforced the idea of dividing time into distinct ten-year chunks. By the end – after a brief detour to talk about how a French website The Spy has never heard of is claiming that a sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence will be released in 2022 – The Spy would have deftly circled back around to spin a conclusion that nonetheless reprised a few key themes into an unexpected message of hope. And sure, you’d have chuckled and moved on – there’s an article about pinball over the page – but then, in a quiet, unexpected moment, The Spy’s words would return…

this month in… 2010

ISSUE 210, February 2010 ON THE COVER BioShock 2 IN CINEMAS The Book of Eli 1 That we had the world’s first BioShock 2 review tells us either that the tide had turned for PC gaming’s late-2000s dark period and that publishers were actively trying to court PC fans and their Steam-powered money, or that we just got lucky with the on-sale dates. Either way, Graham gave it a hearty 90 per cent score. We love us a big drill. 2 In this issue’s Special Report, we had Adam Oxford predicting that Intel’s new combined CPUs would kill the graphics card. 3 Richard Cobbett tracks down a host of PC gaming firsts, from the first easter egg (a writer’s name hidden in Atari’sAdventure), to the first 18-rated game (cyberpunk vampire game Bloodnet). As for the first time Richard…
