  • Best PC Games 2018

    2018 has been one hell of a year for PC games. As the year draws to a close, we take a look back at some of the best PC games of 2018.

    Black Ops 4

    No surprises here. We loved Black Ops 4 at Expertec, especially Blackout.

    In spite of some technical issues when the game runs on PC, Blackout effortlessly combines the battle royale genre with the familiar, creative world of the Call of Duty series to deliver an industry leading leading game with detailed plot, intricate maps, extensive arsenal of weapons and clean graphics.

    Fallout 76

    Again, Fallout 76 is hardly an entirely new experience, but instead, take a familiar game play experience and adapts it to multiplayer.

    Despite an uninteresting story that makes missions easily forgettable, Fallout 76 is a largely fun game play with perk cards and character progression the key focus. Although other players can impede your session, the group play mode is largely rewarding and enables you to enhance players' abilities individually to create an overall strong team.

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey

    As the 11th core instalment of Assassin's Creed, and 20th in the overall series, Assasin's Creed Odyssey had a lot to live up to.

    Thankfully, it delivered. Combining the vast open worlds Assassin's Creed is known for with innovative new quests Odyssey broke the repetitive stereotype that role-playing genres, and indeed the Assassin's Creed series, has been critiqued for.

    Battlefield V

    The latest in the Battlefield series has a relatively simple plot with minimal changes to the general format of the series.

    And, although there were several technical issues such as bombers being overpowered and jaunty camera movements, the nostalgia of returning to the World War II setting for seasoned Battlefield gamers, the solo missions and extensive maps, which boast some of the series' best, put Battlefield V up there with our top games of 2018.

    Fortnite

    It's the game everyone was talking about in summer 2018 and obviously it's in our top games of 2018.

    Although missions become a little repetitive at times, Fortnite shook the Battle Royal genre with its immense simplicity and created a game that provides immense fun, and at times frustration, for both individual and team play.

    Our Fortnite gaming pc bundle comes with an Intel Core i5 2nd Gen refurbished PC, rebuilt in a Game Max Mini Kallis gaming case, AOC 17" monitor, and GameMax Gaming Keyboard, Mouse, Pad and Headset. All for just £469.43!!

  • 2017: The Year In Games

    It’s been a busy year for game releases! We’re looking back at  some of 2017's biggest PC game releases!

    Battle Brothers

    Released in March, Battle Brothers sees you lead a medieval warband and immerses you in its medieval fantasy world thanks to its high-tech graphics and different world maps. Despite the annoyance of no tutorials, Battle Brothers offered a fun, engaging and rewarding gameplay.

    Lone Echo

    Released in July, Lone Echo took VR to the next level with an engaging game play, high-tech visuals and an immersive story. Taking you through time and space to a mining facility on the rings of Saturn where you must use futuristic tools to investigate a spatial anomaly, Lone Echo proved popular amongst gamers.

    Agents of Mayhem

    Release in August, Agents of Mayhem’s three heroes must stop Legion, a terrorist organisation, from destroying the world. In their fictional universe, Seoul, South Korea is earth’s technology hub, a setting that was refreshing and. Meanwhile, the ability to switch characters and weapons with ease created a fun and dynamic game play.

    Destiny 2

    Released in September, this Sci-fi sequel to the MMFOPS Destiny game offered the first person shooting core three classes to pick from, Warlock, Hunter and Titan. The action took you through different worlds to break down the plot where players had to build up earth’s defences after an attack, reclaim their battle gear and fight quite a few aliens!

    Total War: Warhammer II

    Also released in September, the latest release in the Total War series expanded on Total War: Warhammer with the addition of four new races (Lizardmen, High Elves, Dark Elves, and Skaven) and a new map. The ability to combine the new release with its predecessor for one large cross-game campaign added another dimension and level of continuity to the game.

    Middle Earth: Shadow of War

    Released in October, Middle Earth: Shadow of War takes place before the events in The Lord of the Rings, as players fight through Mordor and raise their own Orc army. Shadow of War promised to up the scale from Shadow of Mordor, and it certainly delivered, giving players a larger map to conquer and bringing back the Nemesis system, making it worth the wait after several release delays.

    South Park: The Fractured But Whole

    Nearly a year behind its original release date (December 2016) South Park: The Fractured But Whole was finally released in October this year. This new release promised more than twice the amount of content than South Park: The Stick of Truth, its award-winning predecessor and allowed you to create your character’s origin, explore South Park at night and recruit up to 13 members of Coon and Friends to your cause. Sadly, many gamers thought this wasn’t enough new content, especially given the extensive delays, and was too much of the same as The Stick of Truth.

    Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

    Released in October and following on from Wolfenstein: The New Order, The New Colossus continued with its alt-history into the 1970s, and brought the Nazi threat to a conquered America, combining small details and creative scenarios that make Wolfenstein such a crowd pleaser.

    Call of Duty: WWII

    The highly anticipated WWII was released in November and returned to its roots with a boots on the ground, WWII setting. Despite the server issues on the day of its release, the return of classic Call of Duty combat, the bonds of camaraderie and the unforgiving nature of war was a hit with old and new fans alike.

    Football Manager 2018

    A new season brought a host of new features to Football Manager 2018 in November. Alongside the established countries, players and staff of the footballing world a new, true-to-life scouting system, medical centre and realistic transfer market helped to bring you closer to your dream job and winning the title with any of the world’s 2,500 clubs. A new interface, perfect for streaming, enabled several new tailored setup options, such as a quick start option and a bigger squad, while a new graphics engine produced the best player models, lighting and stadiums in the series’ history, and a sleeker interface that really brought this classic game to life!

    Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2

    The sequel to the 2013 Lego Marvel Super Heroes promised to be bigger and better than its predecessor. Although the LEGO game formula remained the same, the game brought a diverse range of Marvel heroes, time scales and worlds together as gamers fought to defeat the game’s villain, Kang the Conquerer, in one huge Chronopolis Open Hub World. It seems that the ability to share this adventure across Marvel time and space with four player multiplayer mode that lets you play with or against friends, was one of the standout features of the game.

    Star Wars Battlefront II

    Released in November, the sequel to 2015’s Star Wars Battlefront expanded massively with 14 maps, new challenges and distinct adventures across all three Star Wars eras. Like its predecessor, Battlefront II put you on the frontline of different game modes where you can change Star Wars history, but, following criticism from the 2015 game, the sequel offered smaller, more detailed conflicts that seemed to satisfy even the most avid Star Wars fans.

    Steep: Road To The Olympics

    Released in December, Road To The Olympics trained you for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. Although lacking an in-depth, immersive narrative and character depth, the range of sports and real athlete interviews gave an insight into the world’s biggest winter sports event and made for an exciting game play.

    Hello Neighbor

    Released in December, the key to this Stealth Horror games was to sneak into your neigbour’s house and find out what they’re hiding in the basement. The gameplay was advertised as full of suspense with a constantly evolving game experience, courtesy of an advanced Al that learns from your every move. However, gamers were left disappointed as the gameplay lacked the stealth horror and the Al was largely unpredictable and inconsistent.

    With all these games released in 2017, any many more exciting PC game releases to come in 2018, there’s never been a better time to invest in a Gaming PC!
