PC Previews


Dragon’s Prophet Preview

Every month it feels like there’s a new free to play MMORPG out there, but the days of trying to beat WoW are over and it’s now up to developers to try to create new and unusual gameplay and features to keep players hooked.

Watch Dogs Impressions

Command & Conquer Preview [E3 2013]

If you’ve been reading IncGamers for a while then you’ll know that I have a soft spot for the Command & Conquer franchise.

Dark Souls 2 Preview [E3 2013]

Here’s the problem with previewing Dark Souls 2: most of you out there interested in the game, deep down, probably don’t actually want to know too much about it.

Total War: Rome II Preview [E3 2013]

Thinking about it, I’ve played a pretty mixed selection of Total War titles.

Saints Row 4 Preview [E3 2013]

I’m starting to wonder, on and off, if maybe Saints Row has finally gone too far.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Preview [E3 2013]

Thief Preview [E3 2013]

I’m worried.
Moreso than perhaps any other game series, I want a new Thief to be flawless.

Batman: Arkham Origins Preview [E3 2013]

The ethos at work in Warner Bros. Games Montreal with regards to Batman: Arkham Origins appears to be “evolution, not revolution.” Plenty were worried when it was announced that Rocksteady wouldn’t be handling the latest Arkham game.

Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded Preview

Oh, Larry. Has it really been more than 25 years since you first sleazed your way across our PC screens?

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing Preview

If you’re going to slip the word ‘incredible’ into your game’s title, it demands a certain payoff.

By Peter Parrish | 26 Apr 2013 | 3

Resident Evil: Revelations Preview

The idea, presumably, is to win back the hearts of those who feel a bit scorned by recent Resident Evil games.

By Tim McDonald | 23 Apr 2013 | 2

Sanctum 2 Preview

I played a lot of Sanctum. According to Steam, I’ve spent just over 48 hours with the original FPS/tower defence hybrid – almost all of it in two-player co-op – and there aren’t that many Steam games I’ve played more.

By Tim McDonald | 22 Apr 2013 | 2

Company of Heroes 2 Preview

I hate mortars.
For the most part, what I’ve played of Company of Heroes 2 has pretty much showed off what I want from an RTS sequel: roughly the same gameplay, but with a few new mechanics, new sides, new units, prettier graphics, etc.

Arma 3 Alpha Preview

If you’ve watched any of the IncGamers Plays footage of myself, Tim and Paul bumbling around in Arma 3‘s alpha release, then you’ll know we’re not exactly pros when it comes to this military-sim minded series.

This weekend, we got a sneak peak at some of the exciting changes that are coming to Guild Wars 2 later this month in the Flame and Frost content update.

StarDrive Beta Preview

In my very first StarDrive campaign I angered the space mafia, annoyed a strange alien race who enslave adorable space owls and look like upside-down Portal turrets, then spent considerable time designing a mighty warship which proved about as effective as a paper truck with a revolver glued to the wing-mirror.

Shootmania Storm Hands-On Preview

Last time I took a look at Shootmania Storm (back in June), I came away fairly impressed.

Ace of Spades Preview

Jagex are about to unleash a cross between an FPS and Minecraft called Ace of Spades, which could be a winning combination thanks to creative gameplay coupled with shooter class-based action.

Strike Suit Zero Hands-on Preview

Like Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and FTL before it, Strike Suit Zero is title to have benefited from a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Don’t Starve preview

Day 1 – Morning:
Our protagonist, Wilson, has been dumped into a hostile wilderness.

SimCity [Preview] – An urban tri-vector

As we’ve been constantly reminded since SimCity was announced, this is a game that has been built from the ground with the idea of ‘connected cities’ in mind.

Cargo Commander [Preview] – Crate stuff

Cargo Commander is Moon in videogame form, with Sam Rockwell’s role taken by a bearded, blue-collar chap who owns a “fuck you!” button, and Kevin Spacey replaced by a sound system that only knows one song.

Far Cry 3 [Preview] – Holiday from hell

The premise of Far Cry 3 is not all that dissimilar to a teen horror movie; a high-adventure vacation in a tropical paradise goes horribly wrong when the group of sexy gals and guys are kidnapped for ransom by a bloodthirsty gang of land-lubbering pirates.

Hitman: Absolution [Preview] – The glory of the kill

Playing through the opening few missions of Hitman: Absolution one thing is clear, this is a game best played by those ready and eager to celebrate the glory that comes from a precise, perfect kill.

A Game of Dwarves [Preview] – Dweorgen Keeper

If I were to describe an isometric strategy game where you mine out resources from underground caverns, provide living arrangements and food sources for your denizens, ensure the happiness of your charges, build traps, and train military units to tackle foes, there’s a fair chance that anyone who played PC games in the late 90s would respond “hey, that sounds like Dungeon Keeper 2”.
