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?

First things first, if you want to excel in Stardew Valley, don’t bother with animals. Yes, I know they’re cute and generate a bit of money every day, but they also waste time every morning and you can’t automate their care. The secret to success in Stardew Valley is using high-value crops to make artisan goods, then selling those goods – sorry, but it’s true. Unfortunately, you can’t make artisan goods right away, as you need to level up your farming skill to unlock the devices required to make them.

Cloud gaming has become a bit of a dirty word these days. There have been plenty of people who have tried their hand at it over the years, promising high-end, lag-free gaming without the need for all that bulky, costly hardware, but most (*cough*Gaikai*cough*OnLive*cough*) have ended up on that age-old trash heap of crushed dreams and broken promises, their meagre uptake prompting them to disappear back into the ether almost as quickly as they appeared. This time, though, Nvidia might have finally cracked it, as the beta for their GeForce Now streaming service has finally arrived on PC in Europe and North America. It’s free, uses your very own game library and their respective cloud saves, and, whisper it, it’s actually pretty good. So rejoice all you laptop and creaking PC people whose rigs would probably faint at even the slightest suggestion of running something like Doom or Shadow of War at Ultra quality settings and 60fps. Your time in the gaming big leagues … [Read more...] about Nvidia’s GeForce Now PC beta is much better at cloud gaming than you think
Not so long ago, PlayerUnknown was just that; now, Brendan Greene (the man behind the enigmatic handle) is the head of the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds empire. It's an empire that found fame and glory on PC, and recently made the jump to Xbox One, even presented as the console's big win during last year's E3 conference. It can't always have been easy presiding over an ever-evolving online battle royale game, or a community as vocal and demanding as the PUBG faithful, but Brendan Greene explained to us - from South Korea, where he had a quick break before heading back out on the road to PAX - that he still loves the game he built because it's what he wanted to play. GamesRadar+: You just brought the game to Xbox - did it feel like starting over? Honestly, it didn't feel all that different. We use Unreal Engine and that's multiplatform, so we were able to get a build of the game up and running on Xbox pretty quickly. The challenge was really getting it running well, so we had an … [Read more...] about The creator of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on copycats, Twitch, and how he won’t stop until it’s your favourite esport
