Valve isn’t the only company that’s got a sale starting today – other digital storefronts have started their Black Friday promotions today or have other seasonal events running, too. The world is your oyster this week if you’re in the market for PC games, and we’ve put together a selection of places to go to find the best deals. It’s possible to find incredibly steep discounts on older games, of course, but some of this year’s recent big hits are also available for much less than the sticker price. Several outlets are carrying Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for 33% off, which isn’t bad at all for a triple-A game that launched last month to positive reviews. But you’ll be in even better shape if you’ve been waiting for sales on some of 2017’s biggest hits. First, Humble is running its Fall Sale, which includes publisher-specific sales from the likes of Activision, Bandai Namco, Sega, WB Games, THQ Nordic, Paradox … [Read more...] about Black Friday starts today for PC games

Every year Konami and EA battle it out to produce the best football game on the market, and every year a similar story unfolds: FIFA has the licences, but PES wins on the gameplay front. The battle of PES 2019 vs. FIFA 19 takes those differences to new extremes, especially as Konami has now lost the UEFA Champions League licence to FIFA – ouch. To combat this, Konami has doubled down on what has set PES apart from FIFA over the past few years, which is the fidelity of its gameplay. While both games are great in their own ways, and diehard fans of either game will be hard to sway, most of us only have the time and money to spare for one new football game every year. So, of course, the question is FIFA 19 or PES 2019. To help make up your mind we’ll compare this year’s new entries across a few key categories – authenticity and presentation, gameplay, and modes – to see which title emerges victorious. Here’s how FIFA 19 compares to PES 2019. … [Read more...] about FIFA 19 vs PES 2019: which is the best football game?
