Tom F, Jamie and Marsh pause time to queue up their synchronised takes on peerless piratical stealth game, Shadow Gambit, enjoy the sights of Baldur’s Gate biggest Big Town, curtly dismiss Starfield, and triumphantly reinvade Stroggos in a revamped Quake 2.

  • So, Unity absolutely shit the bed.
  • Godot and GameMaker are also available.
  • Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew is a superb real-time-with-pause stealth game by the sadly and abruptly shuttered studio Mimimi.
  • Baldur’s Gate’s final act is worth waiting for, if your machine can run it now.
  • Starfield. Oh boy.
  • Quake 2’s remaster by Nightdive gives a new lease of life to an almost-classic but Machine Games’ new campaign for, Heart of the Machine, is transcendent.
