Minecraft's new Piglin Brute mob is a solid 8/10 brute
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 July 2020, 4:00 am
I appreciate a good brute. I like the word itself, apart from anything else. It just sort of falls out of your mouth like a lead ball, that’ll probably break your toe when it lands. It’s a dim, mean-spirited word, like “fruit”, but too preoccupied with simplistic violence to know how to spell itself. “Brute” […]


Have You Played… Democratic Socialism Simulator?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 July 2020, 2:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. In Democratic Socialism Simulator, a turtle will pop up and ask what you want to do about the housing crisis. Fox News will slander you, and the New Pork Times will demand your comment on “the […]


The Final Hours Of Half-Life Alyx lets you concoct bespoke alien screams
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 4:49 pm
Thought it may as well have felt as much at the time Half-Life: Alyx didn’t pop out of a vacuum. Released today, Half-Life: Alyx – Final Hours is an interactive multimedia docu-book full early prototypes and concepts, deets on what Valve’s been up to for the last decade, and a bespoke make-your-own-headcrab-scream audio tool. You […]


F1 2020 roars off to a surprisingly early start
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 3:24 pm
Jumping the gun a bit there, aren’t we? F1 2020, Codemaster’s latest simulationist race ’em up, has sped off a day earlier than expected. That may be grounds for disqualification, but fortunately this a game, not a car. We’ll all just have to settle for playing this year’s licensed racer a little early. Oooh, what […]


World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands is killing its gender transition fee
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 12:45 pm
By all accounts, changing gender in World Of Warcraf has always been simpler than doing it for real. No appointments, no faff, no convincing Bobby Kotick through two years “lived experience” – just pay Blizzard a small fee and they’d let you rebuild your digital persona from the ground up. With this year’s World Of […]


Sennheiser's gaming headset biz transforms with frankly terrifying trailer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 1:23 pm
Sennheiser have produced some fantastic gaming headsets over the years, including one of my current champions, the GSP 370 Wireless. But alas, Sennheiser’s gaming division is no more, as their parent company Demant have now spun it out as a separate company called Epos. The name will continue to live on as Epos | Sennheiser […]

CCP is Just Going to Keep Selling Skill Points for Cash
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 2:15 pm
Just over a year ago there was some controversy and push back from the community over CCP introducing a Starter Pack that was effectively selling skill points to players, something that seemed very much against the grain of past statements from the


The Forgotten City looks gorgeous in its new gameplay trailer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 11:39 am
There’s a new gameplay trailer out for The Forgotten City, the game that started life as an award-winning Skyrim mod. It’s set in a cursed ancient Roman city where if one person sins, everyone dies. It’s a Groundhog Day kind of scenario where you have to figure out the city’s mysteries in order to break […]


You can't pet the dog in Superhot: Mind Control Delete
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 12:00 pm

Razer's Deathadder V2 mouse has now shrunk in size and price
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 12:28 pm
Razer have announced a new, tiddlier version of their popular Deathadder V2 gaming mouse today, appropriately named the Deathadder V2 Mini. Weighing just 62g and costing £40 / $50, this ultralight weight gaming mouse is a whole 20g lighter than the regular Deathadder V2, making it a better fit for those with smaller hands. And […]


Have you seen the green flash at sunset in Sea Of Thieves?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 9:44 am
As the sun slowly disappears over the horizon, for just a few seconds it’s possible to see the edges of the sun glow green in colour. It’s rather aptly named the “green flash”, and it’s a somewhat rare meteorological phenomenon that can happen during sunset or sunrise when the conditions are just right. Thing is, […]


American Truck Simulator will encourage sightseeing with Viewpoint cinematics
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 9:51 am
As a frequent virtual tourist in American Truck Simulator, I am delighted to hear that developers SCS Software are adding feature catering to Sunday drivers like me who really want to admire the scenery. No, they’re not letting us get out of of cabs and walk around the world, but they are adding little nodes […]


Ever since the Night City Wire the other week, CDProjekt Red seem to have opened the dam on Cyberpunk 2077 info. The slow drip-feed of news about their upcoming action RPG, based on the famous TTRPG and set in a futuristic neon dystopia of high-tech body modding and greedy megacorps, has increased, and now we’re […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 10:59 am
Our ultimate guide to The Sims 4 cheats contains everything you need to know about how to enable cheats, and how to use said cheats to fulfil your sims’ every need… or brutally murder them. We don’t judge.


The Shadowlands expansion makes World Of Warcraft interesting again
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 11:00 am
The content battlecruiser that is World Of Warcraft has been sailing for the best part of two decades. I’m almost thirty-two. I started playing this game when I was seventeen. It’s surreal to type that out – and it’s also one of the reasons why the people I try to introduce to this behemoth of […]


Best Minecraft shaders 1.16.1 – the best shaders to use with Optifine 1.16.1
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 11:07 am
To celebrate the recent preview launch of Optifine for 1.16.1, we’ve updated our list of the absolute best Minecraft shaders for 1.16.1 so you can find exactly the right fit for you. We run the gamut between highly performant, lightweight shaders and glorious trundling behemoths that require beastly rigs to even contemplate using. But all […]


Bloody co-op romp Killing Floor 2 is free on Epic this week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 11:08 am
Crikey, it’s all gotten rather gruesome on the Epic Games store this week. Co-op slaughter-fest Killing Floor 2 makes its debut on the storefront today, heading up this week’s free lineup alongside carceral break-out The Escapists 2 and lonely spacefarer Lifeless Planet. You know the drill – these three are free to grab ’til next […]


Insta Death
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 11:31 am
The other day I was out roaming solo in a Dramiel I had just fitted up. This is a relatively new fit that I've been trying out lately, the last one managed to get about 20 killmarks before it exploded. Not heavily blinged, but faction where it needed it.


Implemented and Forgotten?
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 8:37 am
A feature that's in the game for almost two years now: The Activity Tracker.


New Assassin's Creed Valhalla leaked video shows a mythological boss battle
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 5:50 am
Ahead of Ubisoft’s big notE3 show this weekend, gameplay footage of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla continues to leak. Following the half-hour of gameplay seen earlier this week, now someone’s come up with seven minutes of the female Eivor in a boss battle against some sort of “demon goddess”. It is, appropriately, well metal.


Valorant's new $100 skins will turn your guns into dragons
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 6:10 am
What is a free-to-play game, truly, without super cool overpriced skins? Valorant, Riot’s CS-like tactical shooter, has just revealed its new line of Elderflame gun skins, which turn your weapons into fiery, roaring, wiggly dragons. They’re fully animated, swinging around to look at you after you get a kill, and you even reload them by […]


World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands beta arrives next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 7:26 am
The Covid-19 pandemic has taken its toll on a few games now, causing all sorts of delays on new info and release dates. Not World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands, though, as Blizzard confirmed in last night’s live stream that the expansion will be arriving sometime this autumn, “even if they end up shipping from their homes.” […]


Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's latest anti-cheat effort is Trusted mode
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 7:33 am
Valve have expanded Counter-Strike: Global Offensive‘s anti-cheat tech with new restrictions blocking third-party software which interacts with the game. ‘Trusted mode’ cuts off certain types of cheat, which is good. It also has the side-effect of blocking popular legitimate software including Nvidia Freestyle graphics filters and certain modes in OBS, the video capture & streaming […]


Roll For The Galaxy is a hard digo-board game to learn – but it's worth it!
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2020, 4:00 am
There was a period about two years ago where I’d play a few games of the digital version of Race For The Galaxy every single day after work. It’s a very fiddly board game about conquering space by building planets and industrial developments, as represented by your tableau of up to 13 cards. The game […]
