“we love a shooter about a bleak, har­row­ing world”


What is a PC game? Metro Ex­o­dus is re­leas­ing for all plat­forms, but, per­haps in part be­cause of the de­vel­oper’s his­tory, or be­cause we love a well-paced shooter, it feels like a PC ti­tle. Also, we re­view Yakuza 0, a game with a strong con­sole her­itage that feels at home on PC. We also un­veil Steel Di­vi­sion 2 and Des­per­a­dos III, both from genres that are PC to the bone. My point is the route a game takes to get to us doesn’t mat­ter. A PC game is any game that you play on a PC, and this is­sue is filled with great ex­am­ples of that.
