PC Previews


Takedown: Red Sabre preview

I’m going to be brutally honest with you (which isn’t actually a new thing, but I like the way that phrase sounds at the start of an article): I wasn’t expecting Takedown: Red Sabre to be what it is.

Redshirt Preview

Redshirt is centred around a fairly novel idea. You know Star Trek, and Babylon 5, and, ooh, probably Battlestar Galactica and just about every lengthy series set in space?

F1 2013 PC Preview

It may be time for the State of Washington to revoke my driver’s license.

Deadfall Adventures Preview

Deadfall Adventures is looking like a bit of a romp. Inspired by the early 20th Century fascination with the notion of ancient, lost civilisations having access to powerful artifacts and technology, The Farm 51 have crammed decades of The Land That Time Forgot-style literature and pulp magazine adventures into just one man: James Lee Quatermain.

Total War: Rome 2 Preview

I don’t know how familiar you all are with how preview code distribution works for major game releases, but it usually comes with a document listing all the unfinished bits and possible bugs the writer might run into.

Adventure Park Preview

Since I have fond memories of filling hapless punters full of salty chips and then ripping them off with expensive drinks in Theme Park, the chance to have a look at an upcoming funfair tycoon style game could not be overlooked.

Europa Universalis IV Preview

Given its critical and commercial levels of success, Crusader Kings II might turn out to be the gateway drug people needed to get involved with Paradox strategy titles.

Divinity: Dragon Commander Preview

The other day, someone asked me what kind of game Divinity: Dragon Commander is.

Dark Matter Beta Preview

InterWave needs a hand. Their claustrophobic, side-scroller Dark Matter is searching for £50,000 GBP on Kickstarter and falling well short.

Card Hunter Preview

Card Hunter is so good. So good. Good enough that I’m enthusiastically shouting about it in a preview.

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

Nominated best of E3 2013 for original game and action adventure, Watch Dogs is generating a fair amount of hype amongst gamers.

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.

By Peter Parrish | 14 Jun 2013 | 5

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]

Honestly, I’m not quite sure what to make of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

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?

By Tim McDonald | 31 May 2013 | 1

Grim Dawn Preview

It feels like I’ve spent years waiting for another ARPG to surface.

By Paul Younger | 22 May 2013 | 3

Grid 2 Preview

Grid 2 is, of course, the follow-up to Codemasters’ rather successful racer, Grid.

By Peter Parrish | 1 May 2013 | 7

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.

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.

Guild Wars 2 Flame & Frost update hands-on

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.
