Geneshift, where battle royale rounds last only 2 minutes, is free to keep for the next 48 hours

Geneshift is a fast-paced game, a top-down GTA-inspired battle royale where the rounds only last for two minutes. Yup, that's quick, and if you're quick too you can grab the game for free. Geneshift is currently free on Steam, and if you download it in the next 48 hours, you can keep it forever. The battle royale mode for Geneshift began as something as a joke, but since the community seemed to love the idea it grew into a full-fledged game mode. Despite the two-minute timer, it's still got ever

Capybara’s dark, violent roguelike Below is out now

Capybara's Zelda-inspired roguelike Below, which Lauren spent some time with earlier this year, is out now after five years of development. It looks beautiful: I particularly like the way your tiny hero's lantern lights up the cavernous depths of its procedurally-generated labyrinths in the launch trailer, above. From Lauren's preview it sounds like it's more than just a looker: she called it a "dark, violent game" with "snappy" combat, and she didn't feel frustrated despite numerous deaths. The

The creators of The Outer Worlds on learning to make better RPGs

I think now I know a lot more about what I'm good at and what I'm bad. Where 20 years ago I'm like, 'Maybe I'm good at everything!' I'm going to load out these two combat guys and we're just going to go kill everybody.' Where 20 years ago I'm like, 'Maybe I'm good at everything!' We have good heft, good swing, good inertia, good knockback on people.

The 15 best White Elephant tech gifts

You, brave holiday shopper, must find a perfect White Elephant gift. What is White Elephant? No, White Elephant (or Yankee Swap or Dirty Santa, as the kids apparently call it) is about wrapping bizarre gifts and gleefully waiting to see the dumbstruck look on whoever opens your oddball item. We’ll stick to things between $20-$30, which is the usual limit for White Elephant swaps. It's probably terrible at both of those things, which makes it perfect for a White Elephant.

Witchfire, from the makers of Painkiller, is a supernatural shooter about witches and worse

Witchfire is a "dark fantasy shooter" that was announced at the end of 2017 by Vanishing of Ethan Carter studio The Astronauts. And then it fell off my radar because The Astronauts completely stopped talking about it. It sounds like a twisted tale of supernatural shenanigans, but The Astronauts also emphasized that Witchfire is not a story-based game. "Witchfire is a first person shooter focused on challenge and mastery. like Bulletstorm, a game that some of us directed—would be bordering on imp

Tin Hearts is an adorable Early Access VR puzzler with a lot of promise

VR Month For the next three weeks, PC Gamer is focusing on what's new, what's coming, and what's most exciting in virtual reality. Tin Hearts is full of these charming moments. Like any good puzzler, Tin Hearts gradually layers in new mechanics, introducing each one slowly and eventually combining them in the same level. As much as I’ve enjoyed my time with Tin Hearts, I do wish I could interact with more objects in the environments. I'd rather Tin Hearts only flash the arrows if your sensors lo
