Good morning ladies and gentlemen of the jury. Your Honour, I stand before you and the court today to present a scandalous case, one which weaves a tale of shame and denial. The defendant claims to be a fan of story-rich visual novels and thrilling detective games, and yet they have not played the first, second, or even third game in the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney collection. Please settle down! I understand the shocking nature of this crime but I’d ask for the court to refrain from further outbursts. That said, the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is a staple of detective visual novels and it is indeed disturbing that the defendant has so nonchalantly brushed the original Ace Attorney trilogy aside. I’ll keep my argument short, Your Honour, and I will put forward to the members of the jury why the defendant must immediately be reprimanded. You see, now that the trilogy has been released on PC the defendant has no further excuses, and nowhere left to hide. … [Read more...] about A striking case for playing Ace Attorney on PC

When we reflected on 2018, we realized that it was an unusually quiet year for big-budget games on PC. It was the rare year where some of the most-talked-about games, like Red Ded Redemption 2 and God of War, were console exclusives. Will 2019 go the same way, or should we expect the PC to get more of 2019's extravagant multiplatform games? I've pulled out the biggest hitters from our massive list of the new games of 2019, looked at the field of console exclusives, and spent some time guessing at the surprise announcements that could drop new games in our laps by the end of 2019. It looks to me like 2019 is shaping up to be quite a bit like 2018, with many, many good games, but few blockbuster PC exclusives. The PS4 looks like it could again lead with the games everyone's talking about, at least if The Last of Us Part 2 and Death Stranding make it out this year.But there are a few things that could put PC games—even PC exclusives—in the spotlight this year. Cyberpunk … [Read more...] about How does 2019 look for PC blockbusters and exclusives?

My nerves have been sufficiently jangled and my trigger-finger sufficiently itched by the glut of action games which landed in the closing months of last year. I crave an altogether more sedate beginning to 2018, and so my mind turns to games in which violence, reflex or any other kind of unblinking attentiveness takes a back seat. Primarily we’re talking violence-free games here, but I wanted to drill a little deeper than that – so nothing that generally requires a competitive streak. I’m chasing a certain feel rather than a certain category. Flying, walking, puzzling, driving, building, dreaming, climbing, stretching, swinging (not like that), swimming, wondering: these are just a few of the ways in which flashing pixels can make you feel a very different sort of accomplishment. And, of course, these are not even slightly the be-all and end-all of non-violent games on PC – please do nominate more in comments below. Superflight (official site) An extremely … [Read more...] about The 20 best non-violent games on PC
