Best PC gaming deals of the week – 15th November 2019
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 11:51 am
We’re finally halfway through the big old month o’ deals that is Grey/Black/wallet-emptying November. It’s been hard-going at times, what with all the big games coming out and bleeding us dry over the last couple of weeks. But hang in there, deals hunters, because there is light at the end of the tunnel. Your deals […]

Steam now lets you ditch its fancy new library for a more compact alternative
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 12:03 pm
Change is scary, I get it. Over Halloween, Valve put a bullet in the old Steam library and brought in a flashy new look, filled with visual flair and more customisation for your categories. But what if you liked things barren? What if you just want a big flat list of all your stuff to […]

Spontaneous Orca Gank
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 9:18 am
So yesterday I get a ping from Brrc Flynn of Average Pilots about a mining fleet he's spotted a few jumps over from Murethand in a Low Sec pocket a couple of jumps through High Sec. About 4 Orcas and a few Hulks going to town mining rocks and whatnot.

Microsoft Flight Simulator trailer crowns the queen of the sky
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 7:54 am
While I’ve stopped flying and am too dim for sims, goodness me Microsoft Flight Simulator still makes me coo and gasp in awe of planes. They’re like birds, but made of metal! Powered by science rather than magic! And their guts aren’t full of stones and digestive acids so you can go inside! Truly magnificent. […]

Unity of Command 2 review
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 8:00 am
The awesome destructive might and continent-shrinking mobility of a WW2 army came with strings. While an antique army could fragment at will and locust everything it needed from the countryside it passed through, its 1939-45 equivalent was an essentially indivisible organism, a tangle of dangerous tentacles emanating from a cumbersome organ-clump of vital support staff, […]

The Foxer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 8:00 am
Roman and Joyce always have a jigsaw puzzle on the go. Their current undertaking is a montage of book illustrations sliced into 10k pieces by one of Rooksburger’s slightly blunt punching machines. Below are 36 pieces from that puzzle. Identify all the books to complete the defox.

Wot I Think: Superliminal
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 9:00 am
Developer: Pillow Castle Publisher: Pillow Castle Release: Out now On: Windows From: Epic For: £14 It must be daunting, making a first person puzzle game about messing with physics. Do I even need to name the shadow looming over this whole genre? Superliminal is a short, linear showcase of puzzles built around the creative use […]

Destiny 2 finally nerfing Recluse and One-Eyed Mask next season
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 9:28 am
Two of Destiny 2‘s most clearly overpowered items, the Recluse submachine gun and One-Eyed Mask for Titans, will get long-overdue balance tweaks next season. As a player who owns and has used both: man, to hell with them. Recluse and OEM are powerful enough that in many situations you’re doing yourself a disservice if you […]

Drake Hollow is an agricultural fort 'em up from the creators of The Flame In The Flood
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 9:30 am
“Well, this looks delightful” I foolishly thought, watching the trailer for Drake Hollow, the next game from The Flame In The Flood developers The Molasses Flood. “Far less depressing than their last outing, innit?” Oh, what a rube I seemed when the shadow beasts attacked. There’s the dread we were missing. Announced at XO19 last […]

Limited Success
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 9:11 am
While my woes in Standard Ranked continue and this season is a write off for the most part, let's talk about Limited Draft.I love doing drafts, either in Arena or in person. The thrill of opening a pack and seeing what's there, finding bombs, building a

The Outer Worlds weapons are pretty darn complex. They may give you a tonne of scope for choice and customisation, but each weapon has many more associated stats than we’re used to seeing in games such as this – and that’s not even taking into account weapon type buffs, damage types, special effects, mods, and […]

Shadow Arena shakes up the battle royale genre with a cast of action heroes
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 6:45 am
Black Desert Online developers Pearl Abyss are in the process of branching out of their MMO roots, having announced a clutch of new games this week. But while they might be working on games as far removed as a shooter and a cutesy monster catch ‘em up, it’s Black Desert’s battle royale-esque spinoff Shadow Arena […]

I played Football Manager 2012 for 37 seasons. How am I supposed to move on now?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 7:00 am
The year is 2049. My avatar, managing Tottenham Hotspur, is 67. Harry Redknapp is long dead. Chris Smalling is my assistant manager. Now, as I finally wind down my Football Manager 2012 playthrough through an unholy combination of bugs and, well, having won everything, the future beckons. I’m having an existential crisis and the line […]

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is out now
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 7:12 am
Dust off that beige robe, reader. Jedi: Fallen Order came out overnight, and you don’t need to pop off to a galaxy far, far away to jump in. The folks behind bangers like Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends have put together the first proper singleplayer Star Wars romp in years, letting you blast fascists through […]

The 8 least qualified Jedi in Star Wars games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 4:00 am
One Off The List is our weekly list feature. Is there something you think doesn’t deserve to be on this list? Comment with your reasons why, and next week it may be let off. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is out today, letting you follow in the roguish bootprints of young force punter Cal Kestis, […]

Have You Played…Mega Man Legacy Collection?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2019, 2:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Never has there been a more diverse package of the good and the questionable than the Mega Man Legacy Collection. There are some games from Capcom’s early days with the character that I love and cherish. […]

Last Stop is the new game from the makers of Virginia
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 November 2019, 6:44 pm
Variable State, the studio being the striking vignette ’em up Virginia, today announced their next game. Last Stop is a supernatural mystery in present-day London with three playable characters who get tangled in the same quite strange and awful spookening, and I’m well up for it. While Virginia had no dialogue (to excellent effect), this […]

A Quick November Update
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 November 2019, 7:03 pm
I was cruising to my goal of 100 blog posts this year when I caught whatever is going around the office and felt like death for a couple of weeks. I felt so bad, I didn't even play video games for about 5 days. Perhaps worse, my computer class has sat

Wasteland 3 coming in May with a robotic Ronald Reagan
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 November 2019, 4:59 pm
I thought the post-apocalyptic horrors of Wasteland 3 couldn’t surprise me but goodness me, I’m chilled to the core. I’ve seen all the usual torments–nuclear winter, cannibalism, slavery, torture, famine–but I was not prepared for the sight of a giant robotic Ronald Reagan. My god, what have we done? We must change our ways before […]

Age Of Empires 4 trailer shows off its medieval setting
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 November 2019, 5:28 pm
Today’s a big day for Age Of Empires. A revamped version of the second game launched this afternoon (and it’s still jolly nice, our Nate said in his Age Of Empires 2 Definitive Edition review) then tonight we got a first look at the all-new Age Of Empires 4. It’s set in the medieval era […]

The revamped PC rereleases of Bungie’s classic console shooter series Halo will kick off with Halo: Reach on December 3rd, Microsoft announced today. Reach was the fifth Halo FPS to be released but will be the first to come from The Master Chief Collection cos it’s a prequel to the lot. Have a gander in […]

Rare's new game is Everwild, some sort of fantasy nature-y thing
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 November 2019, 3:43 pm
Rare, the English studio behind Banjo-Kazooie and Sea Of Thieves, today announced their next game. It’s a pretty fantasy thing named Everwild, and it’s a complete mystery. Rare aren’t saying about what it is or what you do. I can tell you it’s rather pretty, though. Have a peek in the announcement trailer below:

Obsidian's next game is Grounded, co-op survival about being shrunk
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 November 2019, 3:50 pm
Transforming the ordinary into the fantastical. It’s a tenet of Magical Realist fiction, Brechtian theatre, staring too long at your hands while on edibles, and now Grounded, a new survival RPG from Obsidian. It features four plucky teens, a shrink-ray experiment and a mundane back garden transformed into a vast, dangerous, colorful wilderness. Gnats are […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 November 2019, 4:08 pm
Now that everyone has a battle royale and a subscription, everyone wants a cloud gaming service too. Google’s Stadia launches next week, and Microsoft today announced that their own Project xCloud is coming to PC. In the cloud gaming way, it’ll let people play Xbox One games on even a crappy old PC (it was […]
