Pre-purchase GTA V before March 31st, get $1.5 million in-game swag


Do you have all of your extremities crossed? Barring another delay, GTA V will soon be out on PC come 14th April, and we figured that it'd be wise to point out that there's still time to pre-purchase the game and get a whole bunch of in-game loot.

With that in mind, here are a three reasons why it might be worth dropping some cash on GTA V before the weekend is out...

Top Five... Classic RPGs That You Really Ought To Play

Pillars of Eternity has been getting a lot of love lately, and rightfully so. It's a fantastic game that successfully manages to capture everything that we loved about the superb RPGs of the Nineties, and yet improves on a number of dated features.

It's a game that values excellent writing and world-building steeped in rich tapestries of lore, not to mention vast arrays of character customisation and depth in role-playing opportunities.

 In short, it's pretty damn good. There's also still time to win one of the five keys we're giving away in our 48-hour competition.

But it got me thinking about those classic games from which Pillars has surely taken no small amount of inspiration. So, we're kicking off a new regular feature to try and get some conversations going, and we're starting out with a look at some of those games.

Ladies and gents, welcome to the all-new, super-imaginatively titled Top Five Thursday feature, and the top five classic RPGs of yesteryear that you really ought to play...

CLOSED! Win Pillars of Eternity – How Do You Kill An Ogre?

The death of old-school, tactically-minded cRPGs has been greatly exaggerated! We had some excellent throwback RPGs last year, with the likes of Wasteland 2 and Divinity: Original Sin leading the charge, and this week Obsidian's Pillars of Eternity finally releases.

It's been the top seller this week, with genre fans eager for another slice of modernised nostalgia, and the game has been shaping up very promisingly indeed.

There's serious pedigree here, with the likes of Josh Sawyer and Chris Avellone onboard, and if you like your RPGs to be rich in lore and strong in story, not to mention boasting a huge range of options for some serious customisation and full-on role playing, Pillars of Eternity should be right up your street.

We've been given a bunch of keys to giveaway, and five lucky winners will get the opportunity to win a copy of the game for free!

Choice, Hype, and Episodes – Should gaming be more like TV?


Life Is Strange and Telltale's Game of Thrones are both receiving new episodes today, and season pass holders will automatically be able to download the new instalments for each series. More and more these days, we're seeing developers opt for episodic models for narrative-driven experiences. If singleplayer games have become increasingly difficult to justify to suits who only care about the bottom line, the upside is that such titles are finding new ways of getting themselves made and played.

Speaking personally, I love the episodic model for games.

It can be frustrating, though, I know. Part of the reason that Netflix has done so well is that it provides the opposite of a time-regulated distribution service for media. In other words, it allows for binge watching, and the consumption of TV products in bulk.

But the episodic model has afforded some games an opportunity that they might not have had under traditional circumstances, and for that reason we should be rather grateful in a way.
