In video games, the Vietnam War isn’t really a popular topic to cover. There were a few awkward attempts to portray the war (did you know some madmen actually made a Platoon video game?), but most have been forgotten to time. Perhaps it’s because it’s an unpopular war that America lost, or perhaps it just wasn’t far away enough from the World War II video game craze. Despite all this, Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness throws its hat into the ring to attempt another go at this time period. So is it worth enlisting, or should you dodge this draft? You play as Wendell “Cowboy” Redler, a U.S. Soldier that is stranded behind enemy lines after his helicopter goes down. Luckily he manages to get out of imprisonment and needs to make his way back to base so he can get back home. That’s actually all there is to the story. One guy’s attempt to get out of Vietnam. There’s really not much to say about it, as there’s basically nothing else to … [Read more...] about Far Cry 5: Hours of Darkness Review – Unfortunate Son

Oh snap, it's our weekend feature, the PCG Q&A. We ask a question to our PC Gamer writers, then you can answer the same question in the comments. This week, a nice, negative one: when was the exact moment you fell out of love with a game? Austin Wood: The Talos Principle I can't remember exactly which level of The Talos Principle it was—though if I booted it up now I'm sure I'd still be on it—but it got me to drop the game in no seconds flat. It was shortly after you unlock the time clone ability which seems mandatory for puzzle games nowadays. And it wasn't that I was stumped. Quite the opposite: I solved the levers and boxes and clones, but when I made it to the exit and looked back on the level, I realized I hadn't thought about a single thing. I didn't need to. All I had to do was pull levers and place boxes in a very clearly indicated order to access new levers and boxes. At any point in the level, I could only do one thing. There was no room or reason to consider … [Read more...] about When was the exact moment you fell out of love with a game?
