Battlefield-ish shooter World War 3 makes its early access debut
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 5:08 pm
I’m not entirely sure why, but there are some people who really liked the Battlefield games when they were at their most gritty and pseudo-realistic. World War 3, released into early access today and developed by Necrovision studio The Farm 51, is for them. Destructible maps of Warsaw, Berlin and Moscow, customisable guns and a […]

The Spooky Retro Bundle 2 channels grimy PSX aesthetics into fear
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 6:23 pm
Somewhere, deep in the darkest recesses of the Uncanny Valley lies a strange, jagged sinkhole. Nobody knows how deep it goes, or even if it has a bottom to reach, merely that its pixellated walls seem to vibrate and shimmer as you move around them. Welcome to the PlayStation Zone. the Spooky Retro Bundle 2 on […]

Hitman gets spooky Halloween murders for new free trial
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 3:22 pm
As Halloween horrors go, a genetically-engineered megamurderer who knows dozens of ways to kill and will wear your clothes to replace you in your everyday life already seems pretty spooky to me. He’s a dark one, that Ian Hitman. But to celebrate the season of Goth Christmas, IO Interactive are making him even spookier with […]

Strategic shooter hybrid Executive Assault 2 enters early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 4:15 pm
My brain is not up to playing Executive Assault 2 today. I could maybe handle a basic RTS, or maybe an FPS but not this complex hybrid of both plus space combat. Making its early access debut yesterday, it’s a sequel to Hesketh Studios’s 2015 Executive Assault. In the first game, players commanded a robot army […]

Friday Bullet Points Before EVE Vegas
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 3:15 pm
Today is the start of EVE Vegas and when this post, scheduled in advance, goes live I will probably be on a plane for the short flight from Silicon Valley to whatever euphemism you care to use for Las Vegas.  Though, given the actual layout of the

Dota 2 starts showing odds of rare bonus items in loot boxes
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 12:41 pm
Valve are starting to clearly disclose the odds of receiving a rare bonus wizard costume in your Dota 2 loot box of wizard hats, adding an in-game pop-up stating your chances. This is for the “escalating odds”, which go up as you open more and more of a certain loot box, and will always track […]

MSI Vigor GK40 review: Membranical meets RGB
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 1:00 pm
Let’s face it, we all fear change and spending lots of money, which is probably why many of us still play games on cheap, squidgy membrane keyboards instead of sharp, expensive clicky-clacky mechanical ones. There’s nothing wrong with membrane keyboards, of course, but they’re not always best-suited to faster-paced games that require nice, quick and […]

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition heads up a handful of Steam free weekends
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 2:07 pm
It’s the weekend for a lot of you already, so here’s a little something free for the next few days. Four somethings, even. Five, if you’ve got a VR setup. There’s probably a few more lurking around that I’ve missed, but there’s a bundle of free weekends running concurrently on Steam right now: RTS spinoff […]

My EVE Vegas 2018 Schedule
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 2:00 pm
As I normally do at a player meet-up like EVE Vegas, I've looked at the schedule and determined the which presentations I want to see. I fully expect, like most years, that I will fail to stick to the plan. But once again I'll post what I originally plan

The world of 'Guacamelee! 2'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 1:00 pm

Have you heard the legend of El águila y la serpiente?

In a dream, the gods told an Aztec leader to take his people into the wilderness of Central America to look for an eagle grasping a serpent on a prickly pear tree -- one creature that could freely travel between the sky and land consuming another that represented wisdom and rebirth.

They wandered, living off fleeting natural resources to survive the changing seasons. That is, until the day they saw an eagle perched on a cactus in the middle of a lake. It was eating a serpent. This was the sign they'd searched for -- the sign they'd found their true home, so the Aztec people built their nation, México-Tenochtitlán on that very lake. Today, we know it as Mexico City.

This symbolic battle between eagle and serpent is embedded in the center of Mexico's flag. You can also find it at the heart of Guacamelee! 2, the 2D action-adventure platformer from DrinkBox Studios.

Mellowing out with management games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 12:00 pm
My body betrayed me last month, trapping me in my bed when it wasn’t sending me rushing to my poor, overworked loo. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t work and so I turned to management games to take my mind off the virus squatting inside me. Juggling budgets, disasters and production chains might not sound particularly […]

Dreadnought studio Six Foot hit by major layoffs mere days after launch
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 12:15 pm
It’s never fun to report on a game launching at the start of the week and the developer making major staff cuts before the weekend, as is the case with Dreadnought developer Six Foot. As reported by Game Informer and confirmed by Six Foot’s Chief Operating Officer, the Dreadnought studio (working in collaboration with Spec […]

Best PC gaming deals of the week – 19th October 2018
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 10:01 am
It’s that time of the week again where I swap my hardware hat for my deals herald hat. What does a deals herald hat look like, I hear you ask? Good question. It’s sort of like a chaperon, if you must know. I asked for a bicorne, but Graham was having none of it. Said […]

Have You Played… Grandia?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Those in Europe might not have heard of this late PlayStation-era RPG. It’s one I remember vividly, thanks to its distinct steam-punk vibe and memorable battle system. It’s not only coming back, but is also finally […]

Dirty Bomb ending development, servers to stay online
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 7:52 am
Less than two months after finally launching Dirty Bomb in full, Splash Damage have announced they are stopping development on their free-to-play FPS set in merrye olde Londone tahn. The servers will stay up as long as enough players keep on playing, they say, but don’t expect any big future updates. Splash Damage say that, […]

The Foxer

The 25 pictures in a cluster foxer are arranged in 5 discretely/discreetly themed clusters. Pictures in a particular cluster must be cardinally contiguous to be valid. For example,  A1, A2, A3, A4, B4 is a possible cluster, unlike C1, C2, C3, C4, D5.

The Flare Path: Iron Curtain Call
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 8:00 am
Before the Su-17s showed up, the defence of Großenlüder was going like clockwork. Dug in behind wire and minefields, my Chieftains were dominating. Their poppy-brushing 120mm guns had barcoded the eastern horizon with pillars of black smoke. Nothing of Soviet manufacture had made it as far as the village, and nothing looked likely to. But […]

Aw for… Plunkbat’s 50v50 event mode delayed by ‘critical error’
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 6:18 am
The lads are going to kill me. I promised them the stag party of a lifetime, a fifty-lad pub crawl from Zharki through Georgopol then a boat ride to Primorsk and a dune buggy race to Mylta, closing by breaking into Mylta Power in search of radioactive goop to chug. I’ve had special tour t-shirts […]

Rocket League’s proper cross-platform parties delayed to 2019
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2018, 6:25 am
Nothing strikes a chill through my heart like delays to long-anticipated cross-platform play systems. Sadly, that fate has befallen Rocket League – a roadmap update has revealed that the “RocketID” system won’t arrive until early 2019. You can actually already play with friends who are using smaller, lesser boxes, but only in private matches. Which […]

You'll have to wait a bit longer to mow down zombies (sorry, Freakers) on the upcoming PS4 action-survival game Days Gone. Sony is again pushing back the exclusive title from its slated February 22nd release date to April 26th. The game was originally supposed to arrive in 2018.
