    As someone who keeps an eye on indie games, one of my most anticipated indie games for the year is out in just over a month. Published by Humble Games (who haven't really put a foot wrong yet), #BLUD is a fun Action Adventure game and I just love the cartoony animations which definitely remind...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Early Access done right - Hades II

    I loved the hell out of Hades, although I was really bad at the game, and so I was hopeful when the sequel was announced. It launched on Steam into Early Access yesterday and the early reviews suggest that Supergiant games have done it again!

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST (Forever) Alone In The Dark

    No, the title isn't referring to me (this time), but you may have seen there's a new Alone In the Dark game out as of last week. It seems to be splitting opinions. The critics are not overly impressed: But there's a 78% rating on Steam, which is Mostly Positive, but only 2% away from Very...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Steam Library crashing

    I've been having problems with Steam all day. I can browse the store, but clicking into the library screen causes Steam to close down and restart. From what I can see reading around, it seems to be an issue for people with Steam libraries larger than 2,000 games. A few people have been able to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Steam is a Hungry, Hungry Hippo!

    There appears to have been a Steam update or something in recent days and it's suddenly using a LOT of RAM. Like this much: I'm not running games or anything. This is not normal, but there's a lot of threads in the Steam communities about this. Hopefully it's resolved soon!

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Steam Next Fest recommendations

    This could be a thread I keep coming back to and will probably necro it more than a few times for future Next Fests! I don't know how wide the interest in these games will be, but having flicked through this month's festival, these are a few that jumped out at me and are very much on my radar...

    This has to be my new favourite Twitter account ever. They're compiling a list of all the video games where you can pet the dog. Ultimately, I can see this account actually changing the order of my gaming backlog!

    2023 was a mixed year for Xbox exclusives with Hi Fi Rush likely being the standout title, Starfield doing okay as a game but not coming anywhere near the hype and Redfall sadly crashing and burning. Microsoft's studios have some pretty interesting stuff going on for 2024 and I'm looking...

    If I play a game or series too much, I tend to get burnt out and having spent many, many, MANY hours playing through the Yakuza/Like A Dragon games in recent times, I wanted a change of pace and having watched a video about games set in England just yesterday, I decided to give Watch Dogs...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST The Big Fat Giveaway of the Year 2024

    New Year, same giveaway. The games listed are from Humble Bundle's monthly subscription and I already own the game or it's not a game that I'm interested in. Steam keys are more likely to go to people who've made an effort to fit in here (if your very first post on the forum is to request a...

    As we're approaching the end of the year, websites are doing a year in review type thing. My Spotify is truly horrendous, so that is not seeing the light of day. I do have a reputation to maintain on here though, so here's my Steam year:

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST 2023 Games of the Year(ish)

    Baldurs Gate 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are probably two of the very best games released this year, but the inches-thick layer of dust on my Switch show how often I get that out, so I've clearly not played LoZ:TotK. Although I own BG2, I've never actually played it, so...

    We've got an open fire that lies unused for most of the year, but is good for when the weather gets cold. Dad's lit it this evening, and has thrown a load of wood on it. I've spent the last hour or so burning old papers that I wanted disposed of securely, but I don't have a shredder. Fire is fun!

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Why do today what you can put off for 6 months?!

    I upgraded my PC's RAM from 16GB to 32GB back in the summer and finally got around to selling the old kit on ebay. Put a starting bid of £10 (had no idea where to start to be honest) and it eventually sold for just over £25. The initial bidder was selling a load of individual memory chips for...

    Seen this and feel nostalgic. It's made by some of the team that made Sensible Soccer & Sensible World of Soccer - two games that give me major nostalgia from being a kid, and it certainly seems to have a similar vibe. The game has an Ultimate Team-type mode involving gaining player cards, but...

    It's happening in the next few weeks: Given I seem to average taking 4 to 6 of the monthly games from Humble Choice (plus whatever random games take my fancy), I will almost certainly hit a Steam library of 3k in the next few weeks, and certainly before the next Steam sale, which starts 21st...

    Given how awful Everton have been so far this season, I'm glad that I'll have a total distraction from the football for a while. Ever the optimistic Ireland fan, I think we'll get out of the "Pool of Death", but beyond that? Who knows! I suspect the first game of the tournament, France vs New...

    Hopefully with not too much poop in the pool!

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST September 2023 new releases

    I had NO idea that Super Bomberman was getting a new addition to the series - clearly I pretty much stopped looking at September's releases beyond Starfield. I don't really do multiplayer games these days, but I had so much fun with earlier Bomberman games when I was a kid. May have to pick it...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Optimisation hasn't been touched I see!

    I was disappointed to see that the latest Saints Row game was an Epic exclusive, but that was tempered when I saw just how crazy the required specs were. The game has finally launched on Steam, and the specs still absolutely nuts! I don't even reach the recommended specs, so will not be...
