GSY Video PC

Available since the end of December 2018, Insurgency: Sandstorm has finally reached the Gamersyde shores. The game has received a warm welcome and we have to say that its realistic and challenging approach has appealed to us too. Just be warned that playing solo can quickly prove to be fatal! The proof of the pudding is in the watching!

While this doesn't seem to have any Single Player mode, according with the Steam page, the game seems to be great for those who like Multiplayer FPS, from the description:

"Sequel to the indie breakout FPS Insurgency, now with 5 million units sold. Sandstorm is reborn, improved, expanded, and bigger in every way. "

The graphics look really good and the description "team-based, tactical FPS based on lethal close quarters combat and objective-oriented multiplayer gameplay." is very appealing, reminds me of the S.W.A.T. games and the older Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six games.

The reviews also seem to be very stellar:

“It might just have one of the best cooperative modes from any first-person shooter that I’ve played all year” - Polygon

“If ever there was an example of outstanding FPS gunplay, Insurgency: Sandstorm is surely it”
8.8/10 – IGN

“Insurgency: Sandstorm feels fresh and innovative at every turn”
85/100 – PC Gamer

Thanks for bringing it up to people's attention. While not for me, I'm sure others on the site will appreciate it. Great games for everyone's taste.

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (2 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (3 Hours ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (5 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (1 Day ago)
