Anyone asking me to chauffer them around PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds had better be prepared to kiss any of the following things: A large tree, the ground, a wall, or a puddle of their own blood. Thankfully, somebody has outclassed my worst Battlegrounds driving moments, and watching them royally blow it in a recent video made me feel comparatively skilled.

Divinity: Original Sin 2 has a mode that lets players design their own Dungeons & Dragons-esque adventure inside the role-playing game, and in case you were wondering what kind of dweeb would port their homebrew D&D game into Divinity 2, the answer is me. My experiment was instructive and, I think, says a lot about the limits of video games' Game Master modes compared to the freedom of tabletop role-playing games.

Earlier this year we ran a list of games that are really good to play on low-end laptops. But something that's just as important when you're away from home or travelling are games that you can play without having to use a mouse at all. So to avoid the horrors of scrolling on trackpads, here's 11 games that play just fine with a keyboard or arrow keys.

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS doesn't try to hide the fact it requires a fair bit of computational grunt to run well, so any tip that stands even a remote chance of buying some extra frames is worth consideration. Depending on your configuration and Windows version, a decent FPS boost could be but a checkbox tick away.

One of the 10 million people playing Playerunknown's Battlegrounds just so happens to be me, and so I am now qualified to assess it in a video. I promise I'm being sincere when I say I consider it "The Game Of The Decade".

Dujanah is a gorgeous and bizarre indie game full of glitch cats, existential spider-men, and death. With key narrative moments and a small arcade of games that focus on death and dying, it imparts an important lesson of acceptance. We take a look in this critical video.

In Mushroom Heroes, I'm looking at a fast-moving platform over a bed of spikes. Timing my jump is one thing, but figuring out which character should jump first is another. There could be a monster on the other side of the ledge, and there's only one person who uses arrows. There might be blocks to push around, requiring a different character. I won't know until I cross. These are the kind of chances you take when playing Mushroom Heroes, a platformer that lets you play as three adorable mushroom men.

There are a lot of big-name peripheral manufacturers making mechanical keyboards, but a search for the term "mechanical keyboard" on Amazon yields a ton of keyboards from companies you've probably never heard of. Such as Vava, makers of the relatively good $US80 ($100) no-name mechanical I've been typing on for the past week.

Heat Signature's clock is ticking. Ten seconds until I get detected in an enemy spaceship, and I haven't even assassinated my target. Finally, I find them. It's over in one cruel slice of my long blade, but the timer is still counting down, and the ship is a labyrinthine hulk.

I run. I see a hull or a space window or something — it's all so frantic — and I leap for it. Puny and impotent, I soar out into the vastness of space. I have seconds to pilot my own spacecraft to catch me before I suffocate. I pull it off, but just barely. It's only then that I realise I'm out of breath in real life, too.

When Avast announced that 2.27 million people had downloaded a malware-riddled copy of its performance optimisation software CCleaner, it was initially believed that a second payload — that can control a system — was never delivered to victims. It's now clear that wasn't the case, and it appears the attackers may have been targeting tech firms for the purposes of industrial espionage.
