“personal computers give us personal experiences”

This issue, we’re looking back at some of the most iconic games PC gaming has seen – games that shaped the history of the medium. But I didn’t want it to be purely historical, because ultimately PC gaming is as much about us players as the games themselves. Personal computers give us personal experiences. So this feature reflects us as a team, dwelling not just on the games, but on our relationship with them – the ways they’ve shaped us as PC gamers. I hope you’re inspired to think on those that have shaped you, too, and, in the warm glow of nostalgia, can forgive us for our more out-there picks… ROBIN VALENTINE Specialist in Defining PC Gamer magazine every month Twitter @robinlvalentine This month Was reminded of what he used to look like before…

behind the mask

A big trend at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show was the number of companies investing big in personal masks and other sorts of PPE for daily use. The fact Razer ranked high among them with Project Hazel is genuinely no surprise, either: the company has been heavily involved in mask production during the pandemic. YOU CAN LOOK ‘SICK’ WHILE HOPEFULLY NOT SPREADING SICKNESS Project Hazel marks a new level of ambition and is Razer’s attempt to make the “world’s smartest mask”, a step up from your typical cloth and paper masks, by introducing a reusable design loaded with features and tech for everyday use. Hazel is a surgical N95 respirator with active ventilation and auto-sterilisation, though those features aren’t new for highly-rated masks. What Razer says sets Hazel apart is the innovative…

the spy

They say that you’re never more than six feet away from a rat. They say actors are never more than six degrees away from Kevin Bacon. They say The Spy is never more than a single leap away from a room’s most advantageous egress point. And, they say, on the internet you’re never more than a few clicks away from yet another GTA VIrumour. The latest has to do with a patent filed by Rockstar parent company Take Two, concerning a “system and method for virtual navigation in a gaming environment”. So far, so generic, but what’s raised eyebrows is that the system’s inventors are listed as David Hynd and Simon Parr, both of whom work for Rockstar specifically. TO WHAT MASSIVE EXTENT HAS YOUR LIFE BEEN ENRICHED BY THIS LEGAL DOCUMENT The…

this month in… 2011

1 Here it is, then. Issue 224. We could talk about the in-depth Dear Esther feature, the previews of Crusader Kings II, or the interview with id’s Tim Willits about, er, Rage. How about our cover star, Shogun 2: Total War? No, of course, you just want to know about the Dragon Age II review. Here’s a picture of Tom Francis in a fun costume. 2 Tom also gets to dig into the tantalising prospect of The Elder Scrolls V in a six-page feature. Skyrim was loved, but also often maligned. Although not as much as… 3 OK, yes: Dragon Age II gets 94% in our review, and – oh boy – did the internet have some opinions about that. It’s an enthusiastic review, for sure, but around its issues there’s actually…
