    With the embargo date counting down many eagerly await if Ubisoft Montreal has created something to cry home about. This isn't a game I plan on downloading from steam hour one, but it surely is interesting to see what 4 years of development time has brought to the table. While the hype has grown over the years the gaming site Flickeringmyth claims they have received an early copy of the Xbox one edition and proclaim s that while it is a good game, it's not the blockbuster many think it will be. They site poor graphics, clunky gameplay and a lackluster plot to keep it from being a truly great game. Though, given the context and constant referral to GTA V, this review is far from helpful as I haven't played it. I do understand that GTA V is now the archetype for an open world shooter, but it shouldn't need to be referred to in every paragraph of the review. It leaves the few who haven't played it in the dark about where the game truly stands and ruins the confidence I have in the authors objectivity.

    Still though, those video's do look enticing and make me wonder if it is actually worth a day one purchase. I have yet to witness any of the negatives of the game and have only seen fluid and dynamic gameplay. Everything from the hacking while driving to the shooting mechanics all looks as smooth as one would hope. I just am waiting to see how it all translates to my keyboard and mouse. As a result I wait for more solid reviews from more reputable sites with the hopes that this will truly be a great game. I need something to kill the time after I complete Dark Souls 2 and Watch Dogs is on my list. More importantly, I await the user reviews from the masses. So if you've got your hands on a copy and have a few things to say about it, please post below.

      Playing on the PS4 and I can say the graphics are nice, though as I said on the forums it's no Infamous or Killzone.

      The only 'clunky' gameplay I see is the driving, which could be a lot better but it's still serviceable. I'd kill for a decent radio feature instead of a track playlist and the online - although I haven't tried it yet - looks promising.

      The only similarity this shares with GTA is cars and open world I for one am enjoying the general mood of the story/game.

      Yea, this looks like something I'll pick up. Still putting the finishing touches on Dark Souls 2 and will probably milk it until this goes on sale. But it does look like something that could keep me busy for quite a bit of time.
      How's the multiplayer? I've been hearing mixed reviews in that respect.

  • Last year We were mostly Playing.

    Well it’s that time of the year when we take our annual (cough, ahem ¬¬) look, not at the gaming industry, not at the progress made in gaming culture, but far more importantly what we ourselves have actually spent the last year doing, instead of something far more constructive which might actually enrich our lives, or at the very least get us some vitamin D.
    Luckily, you lot have been very considerate this year and I only have seven pages to go through instead of the average 15

    At Christmas

    So we come to the end of yet another year, and quite frankly I'l be glad to see the back of this one (where literally everything I actually gave a shit about died)
    But I'm not going to let bouts of chronic depression prevent me from helping those with very real and tangible problems at this time of year.
    Unless they're Jeremy Hunt.

    Love is in the air, you can barely log onto any media outlet without some saccharine effusion espousing the joy and fulfilment that can be found in the cultural institution of two people “finding” each other, and where the zeitgeists leads, the people will follow, and it’s no suprise that my inbox is filled (FILLED) with all sorts of romantic gaming conundrums.
    Now logically you might think that the answering of such problems might be more suited to February, but

    Sometimes the human race disgusts me.
    Take the internet for example. Possibly one of the most influential inventions of modern man. A tool that can be used to inspire and educate even the most disadvantaged of people. But in today's age of zero responsibility and widespread social media awareness, can you believe that people misuse this powerful tool to make cheap, tasteless jokes about horrific current events.
    Luckily for us, here at PCGamesC we don’t go in...

    Did you know this is the only gaming site which features a regular problem page? With the number of gamers having problems with their games you would have thought that it would be a more popular feature. I dare say though that with the ever increasing development of online echo chambers, many don't want to put themselves into a position where they might be judged.
    However some people have come up with the, really quite outlandish, theory that people are not writing to me at all!

    Reality sucks and we all know it.
    Lets face it, if reality was actually even half decent, we wouldn’t spend time doing jobs we hate in order to spend the rest of our time off our tits on illicit narcotics.
    And be honest, if you were even moderately happy with reality, you wouldn’t be attempting to escape it completely by pretending to be something you’re not, doing things you couldn’t possibly do; in the realm of video games.
    Well luckily for us, Oculus Rift is here...
