Run your own evil megacorporation in Spinnortality, a dystopian strategy game

By Andy Kelly.

I’ve just launched a social media network in Europe that, based on your personality and posting habits, buys things before you even know you need or want them. But it’s a disaster. The angle is all wrong, the market hates it, and I’ve lost millions. But while this may have ruined a lesser company, the PC Gamer evil megacorporation has a plan to dig itself out of this hole.

I decide to siphon cash from my pension fund, yielding up to $20 million for each worker I currently have employed. There’s a chance I’ll get caught, ruining my reputation, but it’s worth it. A few turns later and my bank is full of dirty money.

Top 5 Single Player Backwards Compatible Games on Xbox One

Last week, we published a list of the Top 5 Single Player Games on the Xbox One, and this week we have a list of the Top 5 Single Player Backwards Compatible Games on the Xbox One.  All of the current consoles offer some form of backwards compatibility with the previous generation, but I’d argue the Xbox One handles it the best…once the game has been installed, at least. On the negative side, there are only about 130 titles currently available, though there are some great ones coming soon.

While there are certainly more than five great backwards compatible games available on the Xbox One, these are the ones that I feel offer the best single player experience.

Will 2016 be the year virtual reality gaming takes off?

Virtual reality is coming. 2016 will see the release of the first serious consumer VR headsets for 20 years.

In the first quarter of the year, VR pioneers Oculus (a subsidiary of Facebook, since a $2bn (£1.3bn) buyout in March 2014) will launch the consumer version of their Rift headset to the world. In April, Taiwan’s HTC will launch the Vive, another PC peripheral developed in conjunction with gaming firm Valve. And at some point in the year – likely to be the first half – Sony will launch its PlayStation VR, an add-on for the Playstation 4, which will bring VR into the living room.

8 Reasons Why 2015 Was The Weirdest Year In Gaming History

Let’s be honest, the world of gaming is pretty weird at the best of times. If you don’t believe us, sit down with a non-gamer and try to explain the plot of Kingdom Hearts. 

Would you expect anything else from a world that’s embroiled in monsters, post-apocalypses, magical mushrooms and so many biologically enhanced beings we can’t even count them?

YouTube Reveals 2015's Most Popular Gaming Videos

By Luke Reilly. YouTube has revealed its top trending gaming videos for 2015, which the site notes is “based on views, shares, comments, likes, and more.”

The number one gaming video by a soberingly enormous margin is a pre-rendered/live-action commercial for Finnish free-to-play game Clash of Clans, with 83.4 million views. The well-executed live-action Grand Theft Auto V homage and the highly-anticipated reveal trailer for Star Wars Battlefront follow in position two and three respectively, although shockingly the Clash of Clans commercial has almost four times the views of either of the latter.

Why Gamers Should Be Part of Your Audience Strategy

For nearly two decades, I've been a professional marketer. For just as long, I've also been an avid Gamer. With a lens on both worlds, I've learned one thing: Gamers are an incredibly influential—and untapped—segment of consumers. And they aren't just budget-challenged young males. (I'm living proof of that.) Gaming isn't just a thing you can do anymore. It's also a thing you can watch. Increasingly, gaming content on YouTube is becoming a major destination for Gamers' I-want-to-watch-what-I'm-into moments. Believe it or not, watching someone play Call of Duty (one of my personal favorites) can be just as exhilarating as actually playing it.

42% of Women and 37% of Men Own Game Consoles. Quick, Pretend To Be Surprised

The gender demographics for gaming console owners in the United States, according to a Pew Research Center study, break down as follows: 42% of women in the USA own consoles, and 37% of men do. That probably shouldn’t seem surprising or weird, but no doubt it will, given that gaming marketers have been trying to convince us all since the ’90s that games are for boys. 

Somehow, women have prevailed over assumptions about whether or not they “should” play games, and we’re buying consoles anyway. Imagine how much more we’d buy if those products and their associated marketing materials cared about us? Gaming might even start to be perceived as a downright feminine pastime, along with other equally rad pattern-based hobbies like knitting and sewing. Ahhhh. Please, transport me to that alternate universe, post-haste!
