Good Gaming – Fallout 4 Free Weekend

Those fine folks at Bethesda are making their epic game, Fallout 4, free to play via Steam this weekend! 

If you’ve someone missed this one (or maybe just experienced it on a console) Fallout 4 is a massive post-apocalyptic role-playing extravaganza that’s quite brilliant, you can play in a bunch of different styles and if you really want to rush it, you could actually complete the main storyline over the weekend 😛

The PC version is MOD ready and plays well on range of graphics cards, we’ve tested this one quite recently with the new Gaming Laptops as well and it ran like a dream!

If you’re lucky enough to be packing something like a GTX 1080 in your system you can even use our custom settings below and get crazy good performance at 4K \o/

GGPC Tales of Berseria Demo

Tales of Berseria, the latest addition to Bandai Namco’s long-running Tales of series of action-RPGs, now has a demo available to download via Steam (demo download button is just on the right).

Join Velvet and a crew of pirates as they take to the sea in an all-new adventure developed by the celebrated team behind the Tales of series. Veteran Tales of character designer Mutsumi Inomata has personally designed Velvet and famous Japanese animation studio, ufotable, returns to animate the game’s breathtaking cutscenes; delivering truly epic and emotional storytelling in their unique style. This adventure will have us travelling to the many islands that make up the sacred kingdom of Midgand to uncover the mysteries of the demon blight.

If you’re lucky enough to have played the previous Tales of Zestiria or the classic Tales of Symphonia (such a wonderful soundtrack also) you’ll know how much fun these anime action games can be and looking at the new trailer below – this one’s looking GOOD!

Performance wise things are also looking very good indeed with a GTX 1050 Gaming PC happily keeping things at 60FPS on max settings as we battle some angry snakewomen on the beach 🙂

Good Gaming – Life is Strange Episode 1 FREE on Steam

GGPC Life is Strange FREE Download

Life is Strange is an award-winning and critically acclaimed episodic adventure game and right now – Episode 1 is FREE! 

You can download Life is Strange here via Steam – Try not to read any reviews though! The story for this one is genuinely excellent and a lot of reviewers seem to gush about this part or that, this is one of those from dusk till dawn moments when it’s best you go in not knowing what’s going to happen 😛 What we can tell you is that this one is a wonderfully written modern adventure game with a beautiful art style and soundtrack. Another great thing for those about to get into the series for the first time is you won’t have to wait for the next episode in the series to release.

With overwhelmingly positive feedback (both recent and from launch) this is definitely one worthy of some time check out, and that new price is ohhh so good 🙂

Happy gaming everyone!

 

Good Gaming – Outlast 2 Demo available now

GGPC Outlast 2 Demo

An early treat for the highly anticipated horror sequel – Outlast 2, has just appeared online and you can download the Outlast 2 DEMO via steam right now 🙂

Outlast 2 is the sequel to the acclaimed survival horror game Outlast. Set in the same universe as the first game, but with different characters and a different setting, Outlast 2 is a twisted new journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets. You are Blake Langermann, a cameraman working with your wife, Lynn. The two of you are investigative journalists willing to take risks and dig deep to uncover the stories no one else will dare touch. You’re following a trail of clues that started with the seemingly impossible murder of a pregnant woman known only as Jane Doe. The investigation has lead you miles into the Arizona desert, to a darkness so deep that no one could shed light upon it, and a corruption so profound that going mad may be the only sane thing to do…

The games world is very dark but you’ve got your trusty camcorder with night vision mode to help you see things – just keep an eye on that battery life 🙂 We’ve tried to keep things as spoiler free our RX 460 Gameplay FPS test below and highly recommend playing this one with the lights out and headphones on for sure!
