PC Gaming on a Budget: How to build a capable gaming rig for under £540

PC gaming doesn't have to be expensive, as long as you know what you are looking for. For those that aren't tech savvy, the endless combinations of components can be quite daunting. Trying to figure out which components will work with which, as well as making sure the end result will give you a decent gaming experience can prove a little too much for some.

Which is why I have put together a list of compatible components together for you, that will tackle some of the latest games at 45/60 frames per second at 1080p! Even on some of the most demanding games available today on their higher settings. There are lots of combinations I could use for this, although on this occasion I have chosen to go with a PC based around an AMD FX6300 CPU, it’s well equipped for gaming and comes in at a very affordable price point.

Bionic Dues | IndieGameStand | £1.23 (RRP: £6.99)
Bionic Dues Review (8/10)

Bionic Dues is a fascinating blend of roguelike, strategy game and mech customisation; giving you fifty days to save a city from a robotic army with a squad of varied EXOs. Your choice of missions, not to mention successes and failures, ultimately determines the massive battle you'll face once the clock counts down. It's utterly superb, and better yet, it's also cheap as chips on IndieGameStand, who also sell directly alongside their pay what you want promotions.

Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut | Steam | £4.00
Deadly Premonition Review

Deadly Premonition is shonky, bare-bones, incredibly weird and absolutely one of the best games of the last console generation. This Lynchian masterpiece tells one of the best stories ever delivered by a videogame, through some of the most memorable and damaged characters you'll ever encounter in the medium. It's chilling, uncanny, surprisingly vast, packed with personality and quite frankly essential for any Twin Peaks/Alan Wake fans out there.

And it's 90% off until 16:00 this afternoon. Go get it!

Following on from our video earlier today, we continue our look at the current build of Star Citizen's Arena Commander by checking out the racing mode. Carl attempts to put the pedal to the metal by taking the Origin Jumpworks 350R for a spin in the recently unlocked gametype, gawping at the floating prefabs and trying not to crash, before seeing how he fairs in an online race against other players. The results are... messy. Don't take my word for it - give it a watch and see for yourself.

If you missed it earlier, be sure to check out our video which takes a look at the roster of ships currently available in Arena Commander.

Risk Of Rain | The Humble Store | £1.99 (RRP: £6.99)
Risk Of Rain review

Risk Of Rain really is a superb little game, offering frenzied old-school run & gun platforming with compelling Rogue-ish progression. Deployed onto a hostile planet as one of a bevy of unique classes, you'll race to blast through hordes of foes in procedurally-generated levels as the difficulty inexorably mounts up over time, constantly weighing up grinding with the need to keep pushing forward. Loads of unlockables and sensational replayability make it an absolute steal, as we explain in our Editor's Choice review.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon review

Update: The listing is no longer available.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a self-contained bundle of 80s awesomeness; taking everything we loved about Far Cry 3 and making it more radical than we'd ever dreamed possible. Michael Biehn, D&D references, Long Tall Sally and epic laser dinosaurs make this an essential play for shooter fans - and an proper bargain at £2.49.

Shame about Uplay, though. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

State Of Decay review

State Of Decay may have a limited budget and plenty of rough edges, but it's still one of the best zombie games ever made in our opinion. It forces you to own your decisions and consequences, taking care of an entire community who rely on your leadership in real-time. I can't recommend it enough (so long as you can handle the intense stress), and Steam's £5.09 deal price is very competitive indeed.

Metro 2033 PC Price Comparison | Metro 2033 Review

Digital distributors tend to chuck around Metro 2033 deals like a game of discount hot potato, which has temporarily come to rest over at GamersGate. This apocalyptic FPS frustrated many gamers with its gruelling difficulty and awkward stealth, but delighted many others with its consistent vision of a subterranean society. Dave Brown voted it his Game Of The Year back in 2010, so it's well worth checking out at a paltry £1.99 if you enjoy a challenge.

WildStar Review Part 3 | Arts & Crafts… for money!

Platform: PC

Developer: Carbine Studios

Publisher: NCSOFT

Our in-depth and ever-growing review continues for WildStar - because if you're going to do something, you may as well drag it out for several weeks. Or do it properly considering the size of the game. Yes - let's go with that one. If you're a latecomer to the party that is my review, or if you're a swine who has been all like "MMOs? Nah," then I suggest you SHUT THE HELL UP and check out the convenient hub I've provided below for you to click on.

WildStar Review | Part 1 – Initial Impressions | WildStar Review Part 2 | Blazing a trail with PvE content

One of the biggest complaints about MMOs in general is the crafting and economy elements. Cries of “it’s too complicated!” or “it’s too boring!” can be heard from across the interwebs, as a large percentage of those that try it will simply go “nah, it’s not for me” before becoming a hoarder of all the crafting materials they can find, vendoring away at the earliest opportunity. Thankfully, Carbine have created mechanics that are not only varied in nature, but far more hands-on than first glance, providing a multiple levels of depth depending on the comfort zone of the player.

I won’t go all FAQ here with the details (if you want that you can find my rather in-depth article on it here) so I’ll give a quick overview - It’s the usual affair of selecting two professions out of the bunch that are available, some of which are better paired than others, while everyone has the ability to cook (labelled as a ‘hobby’ activity.) The strong theme with these crafting elements is that of player choice, providing players with the ability to customise items with stats needed for specific roles (or, if things are being made to order, with a specific balance of stats for maximum class build efficiency.)

Shadow Warrior Review

'Reboot' doesn't have to be a dirty word. Shadow Warrior is a proper old-school FPS, a riotous full-fat romp with huge guns and hordes of enemies to point them at. Not to mention a katana and one of the best first-person melee combat systems we've ever seen. A steal at £4.99, and you don't have to register on Steam if you don't want to. Expires at 18:00 this evening.

Payday 2 gets free Steam weekend & 67% discount

Payday 2Steam | £7.66 (save £7)
Price ComparisonReview

Payday 2 is still one of the most rambunctious cooperative games out there, a crazy crime spree where meticulous planning and execution usually goes to hell in a sea of smoke, SWAT teams and gunfire. It's an amazing heist simulator - but you don't have to take my word for it, because it's free to play on Steam over the weekend and only £7.66 to buy. To Overkill's credit, they've also taken the high road about the seemingly similar Battlefield: Hardline, which only emerged after Goldfarb and co. proved the concept worked.

Our recent Game Night videos show just how right and wrong these heists can go!

If you're willing to buy from Amazon.com (and tell a couple of porkies about having an American address), you can undercut Steam's price further with a cool £5.98 price. Thanks to Webhead @ HUKD for both great spots!

WildStar Pre-Launch Interview | Chad Moore on storytelling in MMOs, blurred moral lines, & community

Well, it's almost here - after years incessantly throwing coverage in your faces (whether you wanted it or not) Carbine Studios and NCSOFT are days away from flicking the switch and launching WildStar. I think it goes without saying that I have been rather optimistic for the sci-fi MMO thanks to the pedigree of the developers creating it, the charming art direction of its visuals & story, and the focus on providing a end-game experience that hasn't really been seen since the early years of World of Warcraft. It also helps a fair bit that the combat mechanics allow for fast-paced gameplay, something that has been attempted many times in previous efforts but has never really hit the mark.

There are other things too - PvP, Warplots, player housing and the like - but it would be ignorant to ignore the fact that all of these features have been done before. What Carbine have done is refine the wheel we know and love, not redesign it, bringing about a culmination of what the genre has experimented with over the last decade or so, and with the promise of a raiding experience that will challenge even the most skilled of players (hardcore) it's not hard to see why a huge community of excited players have been clamouring to get started as much as I have.

So, at the end of last week I was given the chance to speak to the recently-crowned Creative Director Chad "Pappy" Moore - a man who drops the most glorious of lore-bombs at every opportunity. I sat down with him to discuss WildStar's lore (obviously), balancing the World Story for players, the blurred moral lines of both factions, developing an deep narrative moving forward, and the importance of community interaction.

The Typing Of The Dead: Overkill gets filthy lovely Steam sale

The Typing Of The Dead: Overkill DLC collection | Steam | £6.99 (save 66%)
Review

House Of The Dead: Overkill was amazing, and typing words on your keyboard rather than using a WiiMote has made it better in absolutely every respect. It's utterly brilliant both as an ironic grindhouse homage and viable typing trailer, while its numerous DLC word banks make the experience even more surreal. The £6.99 Thou Filthy Love Collection won't net you all of the DLC, but will net you the best of it alongside the game itself at a £12 saving. Thanks to Jas10 @ HUKD!

Mind you, Amazon.com includes it in an amazing SEGA bundle if you're willing to slightly fudge your address (and pretend to be an American citizen).
