PC Gamer UK October Issue: Monkeying around

I’m a nosy gal, so I can’t exactly blame Guybrush for being a bit salty that it’s been three goddamn decades and he still doesn’t have a clue what Monkey Island’s secret is. But hey, anything can happen—after all, Return to Monkey Island is a thing that’s actually releasing.

This month, we’re chatting to Ron Gilbert about the sequel that was never supposed to exist. The old Monkey Island team has a new perspective, from evolving its art style to modernising the point-and-click style of gameplay. What exactly is the plan for our dear Guybrush Threepwood all these years later? Monkey Island fans are in for a treat with the subscriber cover too, featuring gorgeous art of Guybrush’s favourite zombie pirate pal LeChuck.

We also got to sit down with director and producer of Final Fantasy 14 Naoki Yoshida, looking back on what’s been a phenomenal 12 months for the critically-acclaimed MMORPG and seeing what’s in store for Yoshida and our Warriors of Light in the years to come.

It’s also that time of the year once again: our PC Gamer Top 100 is here. Blood was spilled, hair was pulled and tears were shed as we battled it out to determine the best 100 games on PC that you can play right now. There were some mighty tough choices to make this year—we bumped a few classics and others skyrocketed to the cream of the crop. We think the list is pretty rad though, a reflection of our current team and where PC gaming is today.
