Some highlights for you:Has a game ever felt like it's become your job?What game made you really, really fucking think about life?What videogame enemy scared you the most?Last weekend dance music producer Marshmello played two 10-minute gigs in Fortnite for different time zones. Millions of people watched it, whether in video form or by logging on and dance-emoting to the tunes in-game. It wasn't the first time musicians have performed in an online game, and it won't be the last. Which brings us to the latest PCG Q&A: Would you watch a concert in a game? And if so, which musician? And, just as important, which game?Samuel Roberts: REM, specifically in Hitman 2Let's say your target is a tour promoter who used to be a genocidal maniac, running his own rogue nation somewhere in the Deep South.

Battlefield 5 is back in the muck of World War 2, and while DICE didn't pull any sort of big pivot—except announcing a battle royale mode to be added post-launch—some of the series' core systems are being redesigned dramatically. If you don't already play Battlefield, these adjustments may not seem like big deals, but they are. Squad play is much more emphasized, reviving has been overhauled, the animation system has had a ton of work, co-op is returning, and that's not the half of it.As usual with EA, there's a somewhat complicated release schedule for Battlefield 5, which is out this month after being delayed from October.

The Last of Us Part 2 has been shrouded in mystery for years. But now that it's been shown off at this year's PlayStation E3 2018 press conference, the veil has begun to be lifted. If you thought that gameplay clip was all you were getting, think again: I sat down with Naughty Dog's Kurt Margenau and Anthony Newman, the co-game directors on The Last of Us Part 2, to ask them all about Ellie, what players can expect from The Last of Us Part 2, and when we're going to hear what's happened to Joel. Here's absolutely everything I learned. Ellie doesn't want anyone to know she's immune... but why? That tattoo on Ellie's arm tells us a lot about Ellie (obviously)... but also the company she finds herself in. When I asked Margenau about it, he confirmed that "it's covering the scar, the bite mark on her arm, because she doesn't want people to know of her immunity, so she's kind of covering it up." Perhaps when folks find out that she's immune, and that the Fireflies could've … [Read more...] about 16 exclusive things we learned about The Last of Us Part 2 from the co-game directors
IF YOU'RE on the hunt for a new smartphone, you'll soon have another tantalising candidate to consider: the OnePlus 6. The flagship killer lands in the UK on Tuesday, May 22 with the Samsung Galaxy S9 squarely in its sights. Both are Android handsets with matching looks, but that's where the similarities end. So which one deserves your hard-earned dosh? Here's a quick guide to the two handsets. OnePlus 6 – what you really need to know The OnePlus 6 is the first OnePlus to pack an all-glass back and its 6.28-inch fullHD AMOLED display is also the biggest ever for the brand. That makes it about the same size as the Galaxy S9+. What's more, it comes with the lower price tag we've come to expect from OnePlus. At £469 for the 64GB storage model, the smartphone is significantly cheaper than its flagship rivals. As is fast becoming the norm, the new blower trims down the borders (although it still doesn't manage to pull off the same all-screen front as the iPhone X). And like … [Read more...] about OnePlus 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S9 – which of the two Android smartphones should you buy?
