Gamescom: Cyberpunk 2077 manages to be a top seller on Steam in 2021

Kotaku reported some interesting tidbits from Valve’s recent stat dump for Steam, most notably that Cyberpunk 2077 quietly became a top seller in 2021.

That might be turning around, though.While the very top of the charts are populated by games like New World, Valheim, and Naraka: Bladepoint that generate revenue continuously even after someone starts the game, Cyberpunk managed to make the Silver section of the Top 100 top sellers by revenue, a fact made more impressive…

That’s what modder keanuWheeze aimed to bring to Cyberpunk 2077 when they added a metro system to the game (thanks Destructoid).With this mod, you can use a fast-travel station to wait for a metro. Text at the bottom of the screen tells you where the train is going next, and once it arrives, you…

Gamescom: Sable review A beautiful meditative journey through an engrossing world

Sable stands in stark contrast to many conventions of open worlds. Devoid of conflict and combat, this is a world leaning entirely on the strength of its visuals, worldbuilding and exploration. However, developers Shedworks pull this feat off with impressive style, delivering an enriching experience that succeeds in spite of some technical issues. You explore an almost entirely freeform open-world as the titular Sable, a young girl embarking on her Gliding. This pilgrimage sees her exploring the wastelands of Midden on a quest for a mask. More than just a headpiece, these embody a character’s…
