Fight Club

Fight Club was a lukewarm hit when it was released in 1999, but over time the movie’s message has resonated with audiences across the world. Based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Chuck Palahniuk, the film was directed by David Fincher and starred Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Helena Bonham Carter.

In the story, a dissatisfied narrator (Edward Norton) forms a “fight club” with soap salesman Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt). They soon form a bond that transforms into a destructive relationship.

The film is a stark condemnation of modern capitalism and how its citizens view one another. It also explores how violence undermines society and gives people a sense of identity.

Star Wars Battlefront II

Star Wars Battlefront II has a lot to like: the multiplayer is bombastic, there are loads of maps and it offers a great variety of modes. However, it also has an incredibly insidious microtransaction model that creates a very uneven game.

The biggest mode is Galactic Assault, which is a big-bang space combat arena that has players battling across vast, planet-sized worlds. There’s also Starfighter Assault, which has players fending off enemy ships in high stakes dogfights.

There are also Heroes, which take on the roles of a range of iconic characters from the Star Wars universe. From Lando Calrissian to Captain Phasma, there are 22 playable heroes in total.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Skyrim is one of the best games ever made, and while the price tag is a huge barrier for many players, it’s worth sticking with. Even after 55 hours of playing, the world still feels vast and unexplored on a scale that neither Morrowind nor Oblivion could.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim takes place 200 years after the events of its predecessor, and is set in the frozen climes of northern Tamriel. It features an array of settlements, all ruled by jarls and governed by their own laws.

Its gameplay is fast and tense, with a lean, sharp engine that is far more exciting to play than Oblivion’s. There are some visual upgrades, such as a new lighting technique and some sort of fluffy, frozen fog that adds a hazy sparkle to the scenery.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Whether you’re an avid fan of the original Witcher or just a newbie to the series, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a must-play for everyone. It mixes Skyrim’s unapologetic scale with Grand Theft Auto V’s incredible depth to create one of the most jam-packed open worlds of all time.

The game’s story has three possible endings, which can be determined by the player’s choices throughout the narrative. Depending on the player’s actions, Ciri can become the Empress of Nilfgaard or die in her attempt to defeat the White Frost.

It’s not long after Ciri returns to the Isle of Mists that Geralt learns that Eredin, the leader of the Wild Hunt, wants Ciri’s Elder Blood powers to fight the White Frost. Using the Sunstone, Avallac’h lures Eredin to Skellige, where Geralt defeats him in combat.


Digital Extremes, the developers behind Warframe, announced a new free-to-play fantasy MMO called Soulframe over the weekend. Where Warframe was a fast-paced shooter set in a sci-fi universe, Soulframe will feature heavy melee combat and is grounded in nature.

The game is in early development, so it’s unclear when it’ll release. It’s also worth keeping an eye on the official cinematic reveal trailer, which runs just shy of six minutes.

PC Gamer is the UK’s best and best-selling PC games magazine, which offers a mix of reviews, industry insights and previews of big AAA titles and trending indie titles. It’s the trusted source of authoritative, honest and informative reviews by both the public and the gaming industry, so it’s a must read for PC gamers of all kinds.
