Top Five Robots In PC Gaming

With Fallout 4 topping the charts, and given that the series has its fair share of awesome mechanical companions (yes Codsworth we're looking at you) for this week's top five we thought we'd take a look at some of the best robots in PC gaming.

#GMGasks | Who should accompany you in the wasteland?

Fallout 4 is filled with all sorts of colorful characters for you to meet, shoot in the face, and accompany you across the wasteland.

However, there's only so many people you can roll with across The Commonwealth, so we want to know - Who would you pick to buddy up with in the wasteland? #GMGasks

Fancy rolling with a wise-cracking
In the office, we've picked Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, Cayde-6 from Destiny, and the assassin-bot HK-47 from Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic.

You can find all of our past #GMGasks coverage right here!

Tech Tuesday | The Fallout PC

For this week's Tech Tuesday, we are looking at (slobbering over) the special edition Fallout 4 rig created by our chums at Oblivion Systems.

You may have seen a picture of this beauty of a PC in our partner competition with Mad Catz and The Sun newspaper (it's still running, click here to enter).

The case is decked out in vault colours with blue and yellow panels, mounts and fans, to make it it look Vault-Tec approved both inside and out. Vault Boy himself takes pride of place on the front of the case, the friendly face hiding the monster of a machine beneath.

The machine is a high-end build customized for ultimate gaming experience with an i5 Intel Skylake processor and GeForce GTX 960 providing much of the grunt, and a speedy SSD to ensure things run quick and smooth.

#GMGasks | If you could play one game again for the first time, what would it be? Why?

There's nothing quite like stepping through the twists and turns of a game for the very first time. From stepping out of a vault for the first time, to seeing Bowser meet lava face first, there's a whole host of experiences that feel special.

But sometimes going back can be a little hard. You don't want to go back and shape that experience that might not be as good as your first time!

This week, we want to know - If you could play a game again for the first time, what would it be and why? #GMGasks

Top Five PC Gaming Timesinks of 2015

There have been a number of games this year into which we've sunk well over 100 hours. Games have been getting bigger, more fully featured, designed for players to return to time and time again, updated with fresh content and open-ended gameplay. Perhaps more so than ever before, it's possible to buy a game other than COD or FIFA and still be playing it six months down the line.

Let's take a look at some of the top timesinks to have released this year on PC.

How about you? What have been the games that you sunk the most time into this year?

Guess N Win - The Ship

If you think all multiplayer FPS games are the same, it's because you haven't played The Ship yet.

The passengers are coerced into a brutal Hunt to indulge Mr. X's fantasies. Can you survive the voyage? Can you unravel the mystery of Mr X and ultimately can you escape his clutches?"

Sounds original right? Because it is! And thanks to Blazing Griffin we have 10 keys for The Ship to give away during this week's Guess N Win.

#GMGasks | What should Call Of Duty do next?

From World War II to robotic near future war - the Call of Duty franchise has certainly covered a lot of ground since it's humble beginnings in 2003. We're due it's twelve instalment this week with Call Of Duty: Black Ops III, which takes things all the way to 2065.

With Infinity Ward due to be behind 2016's inevitable Call Of Duty game, we want to know - What should Call Of Duty do next? #GMGasks

Tech Tuesday | Mad Catz C.T.R.L.r Mobile

My Steam Link and Steam Controller arrived a couple of weeks ago, and while the Link has been a mainstay in my living room, I have to say that I've found the Controller to be a clunky, chunky, poorly-constructed mess. I was hoping it would become my PC gaming pad of choice, but instead it's lying in the corner of the room, drowning in a puddle of shame.

Thankfully, Mad Catz saw fit to send over their C.T.R.L.r Mobile Gamepad for a bit of Tech Tuesday testing. I've been living with it for just over a week now, and it's slipped relatively smoothly into my PC gaming life, which is all I ever really want from a controller.

The World Of Davo | Get Spooked!

It was awfully quiet around the house, and all was still,
Apart from that monster that obviously standing behind you
oh god oh god don't look. 

Yes kids, it's time for All Hallows Eve - where everything is dark all the time, people can dress up as their favourite fictional spook, and all manner creepy games can be played with the lights off and headphones cranked up. 

So, let's take a look at some of our favorite horror characters that have shown up in games.

#GMGasks | Why do you play horror games?

It's getting awfully creepy in Green Man Gaming towers this week - Pumpkins are glowing, drawers are randomly opening, and sweeties keep appearing in the office.

It's also a perfect time to turn down the lights, crank up the headphones and get spooked with a whole host of horror games – a good number of which are on sale right now!

This week, we want to know why you play horror games, and what are some of your favorites? #GMGasks

"Horror comes in many forms" | The Park – Developer Interview

Funcom's psychological horror adventure – The Park – releases today, and we sat down with the game's creative director, Joel Bylos, to talk a little about what players can expect.

Could you briefly explain what The Park is?

The Park is a single player, narrative driven psychological horror experience. Players take on the role
of Lorraine, a single mother whose son, Callum, has disappeared just as Atlantic Island Park is closing for the day. The game is focused on Lorraine’s search for Callum in the amusement park.

How did the idea for The Park come about?

There are two disparate ideas that came together for the creation of The Park. In March this year, we decided to move our front-end rendering to the Unreal 4 Engine, and in doing so we decided to make a small experience to test this process from start to finish.

Tech Tuesday | NZXT S340 Razer Special Edition PC Case

This week on Tech Tuesday, James is back to take a look at NZXT's rather handsome S340 Razer Special Edition Mid Tower PC Case.


When talking about the positives of this case one topic comes up first – the look. When you turn it on, the first thing that hits you is the green LED symbol, the cool under glow and power button. It's one of the few products that genuinely looks as good as it does in the professional photos on the manufacturer's page. The consistent sci-fi green glow is perfect – a credit to NZXT and Razer's attention to build quality; something we'll keep coming back to in this review.
