Sunday, October 22, 2017

The Nintendo Switch seems to be selling pretty darn well, and yet, there are some people who still seem unable to get their hands on one.

Saturday, October 21, 2017

Every week, we ask our panel of PC Gamer writers a question about PC gaming. This week: which old PC game do you revisit regularly? We also welcome your answers in the comments.  James Davenport: Portal/Portal 2 I can’t count the times I’ve played through Portal and Portal 2. With over 100 hours clocked in each, I’m an amateur speedrunner at this point. I treat every puzzle like a choreographed…
