What was the first game you upgraded your PC to play?

When I finally got a desktop PC the first game I installed was Dota 2, and gosh was it an eye-opening experience! This kicked off my second era of PC gaming as a kid. Wes Fenlon: C&C: Tiberian SunThe first game I remember being heartbroken I couldn't play was Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun. And if you want to build a great gaming PC for a third of that, you can. PC gaming has never been more accessible, and the vagaries of himem.sys and emm386.sys are thankfully far in the past.

Konami kills the P.T. for PC horror remake, but at least the creator got an internship

Now, a project to rebuild the nightmarish nugget for PC has been quashed by Konami. 17-year-old developer Qimsar decided to remake the game for PC, and released a free downloadable build via the site GameJolt . I said that I would be willing to do so, and from there, the conversation went from really bad for me to, in my personal opinion (I’m sure you all will have differing opinions), really really good." The Konami spokesperson then told Qimsar they would be sending him some Konami games and m

This week’s highs and lows in PC gaming

I’ve also got a vacation planned for late July into early August, where I will step away from the PC and technology for two whole weeks. My favorite thing about PC gaming is finding those communities that stay dedicated to their favorite games and play them, well, forever. PT For PC was made using assets from Konami's original demo, and we predicted something like this might happen. Like, I'm only a couple of hours in but I want to write about it on PC Gamer all day long kind of good. I do that

The games we keep buying over and over

And yet, some games have managed to coax us into double-, triple-, or even quadruple-dipping to add multiple copies to our collection. But in hindsight, it can seem a bit silly to be buying these games over and over again. Consider this my unpaid PSA: always buy older PC games from GOG when you have the option, which is exactly what I did after getting fed up with finicky resolution settings on Steam.

The Crew 2 is an unremarkable PC port of a lackluster racer

This is why the framerate cap is so damn frustrating. The above gallery has 4k screenshots of each preset, along with maximum and minimum quality. The recommended specs are for running The Crew 2 at 1080p using the high preset, with a 60fps framerate. I've tested starting from 4k at max and moving down in resolution until the GPUs hit the framerate cap. It turns out that The Crew 2 is basically a non-event when it comes to CPU requirements, thanks once again to the framerate cap.

Konami shuts down the PT for PC remake

PT for PC, the recreation of the famed Silent Hills demo that took on an all-too-brief life of its own a few years ago, has been shut down. "I got a phone call that I was expecting at about 5 am from someone who worked at Konami. He essentially told me that he was very sorry for being the bearer of bad news, but I would have to take down my remake," Qimsar wrote. The Konami rep told Qimsar that PT on PC is very popular around the studio, and that as compensation it would send him some merchandis
