Final Fantasy Tactics-like SRPG Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark enters early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 5:53 pm
There are some who feel the strategy RPG genre peaked with Final Fantasy Tactics back in 1997, and I struggle to find a solid counter-argument. 6 Eyes Studio must feel the same way, as they’re happy to call their own entry into the genre – Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark – a spiritual successor. It’s an […]

Far Cry 5’s final, zombie-themed DLC lurches into view on August 28th
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 4:18 pm
While Far Cry 5 was a solid open-world shooter (if you could switch your brain off whenever it tried delivering another wave of plot), Ubisoft just haven’t been sticking the landing on the DLC. The first two thirds of the season pass – a Vietnam war themed expansion, and a mission into pulp sci-fi territory […]

Generation-hopping platformer The Messenger delivers the goods August 30th
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 1:03 pm
I’ve always been a sucker for a good ninja-themed game, and The Messenger captures that Ninja Gaiden/Shinobi vibe well. Sharp pixel art, catchy chiptunes and an interesting twist define this Devolver-published platformer. While The Messenger looks like a perfectly solid Shovel Knight-esque platformer on the surface, the release date trailer below shows how players will […]

Grimly satirical post-Brexit bouncer sim Not Tonight is out now
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 2:30 pm
It’s hard not to have mixed feelings about Not Tonight. For starters, it’s nice to see another game so heavily inspired by Papers, Please – we need more darkly satirical bureaucracy sims. It also contains words (apparently quite funny ones, at that) written by RPS pal and contributor Richard Cobbett, another mark in its favour. […]

My Horde Battle for Azeroth Boost Plan
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 2:15 pm
As has been a thing with the last few expansions, I was wondering how I should use the level 110 boost that came with the Battle for Azeroth expansion.  And, as I suggested in that post, I decided to go the Horde route. I already had a level 110

'Okami HD' on the Switch is an imperfect classic
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 1:00 pm

What makes a good Switch game? The consensus seems to be something that isn't graphically demanding, has a quick gameplay loop or is easily played in bite-sized portions. Local multiplayer helps out a whole lot, too.

Unknown Pleasures: Witness the best five new indie games on Steam
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 12:00 pm
Forgive me, readers, for I have let us all down. This week I had someone over to sign a legal document as a witness, and we watched Fury Road, and I didn’t say “Witness me!”. There’s nothing I can do to redeem myself, but before you destroy me with sticks, why not enjoy another round […]

Warframe’s minigame arcade debuts with Frame Fighter plus some old Easter eggs
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 12:02 pm
Free-to-play space ninja sim Warframe has always had an ‘anything goes’ attitude to new content. While we wait for the Fortuna and Railjack expansions (adding a new open world planet and capital-class space combat respectively), idle Tenno now have a new option for whiling away the hours. Frame Fighter is a goofy little fighting game […]

Orvanne District Court Rejects Capsuleer Kyonoke Request
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 12:31 pm

Orvanne Federal District Court has officially declined the request by Arataka Research Consortium to hear a complaint for injunctive relief against the Federal Intelligence Office, after several months of deliberation.

The Orvanne District Court's statement justified the decision, saying: "While the Arataka Research Consortium (ARC) is, under Federal laws enacting the Yulai Convention, recognized as having certain defined rights to do business within Federation space, a Federal District Court has no jurisdiction over the application of Federal civil law to extraterritorial and foreign entities falling under the terms of the said Yulai Convention."

"Moreover, ARC itself has not established standing in Orvanne District Court with respect to FIO materials pertaining to Astral Mining's RP4 facility in Postouvin; nor with respect to such materials pertaining to the SoCT's H4-RP4 Kyonoke Inquest Center. On these grounds individually and in combination, ARC's filed request is determined to have no force in Orvanne Federal District Court."

Reisu Lemarrein, legal spokesperson for the Federal Intelligence Office, commented on the ruling. "It is only just. ARC is made up of Caldari and Amarr corporations, and they have no business in our court system. It's clear now that in a spurious search for openness they imagine to be lacking they came to the Federation instead of filing a request with the CBT or petitioning the Amarr Civic Court. Perhaps they did not realize that we are not naive enough to allow our system to be exploited by external parties."

The Hope for All Act, passed under provisions of the Yulai Convention during the Kyonoke Inquest last year, imposes a duty under CONCORD law to release all research and intelligence logs pertaining to the Kyonoke plague. Despite the adoption of the HfA Act, at this time none of the four empires have complied with it.

Sources close to the Caldari Chief Executive Panel suggest that discussions on the topic among the Big Eight are deadlocked. Powerful megacorps such as Kaalakiota, Lai Dai and Sukuuvestaa are reportedly keen to defend a position of non-disclosure under another of the acts imposed during the Inquest, the Vital Secrets Act, which guarantees every empire the right to maintain secrecy over their own investigations into the Kyonoke Crisis.

Inquiries from the Scope to the CEP, as well as to the Minmatar Tribal Council and the Amarr Court Chamberlain's office have not been answered.

While the court has refused ARC's petition, a significant number of similar requests have been filed with either the Orvanne District Court or the Federal Supreme Court itself by a number of Federation-based individuals and associations, and rulings on standing and validity of such filings are still pending.

Legal observers suggest that filings at Orvanne District Court pertaining to the SoCT's H4-RP4 facility are likely to be refused on grounds of extraterritoriality under the Yulai Convention but are divided as to the merits of petitions concerning the Astral Mining facility. Some have suggested that the entire matter will inevitably be heard by the Supreme Court as the only judicial venue where all connected issues could be heard in their entirety.

Nickelodeon’s ‘Double Dare’ finds new life in Facebook Messenger

Nickelodeon's game show Double Dare is now a Facebook game. The classic show originally aired from 1986 to 1993 and recently just made its return to Nickelodeon. Now, fans will be able to play a version of Double Dare themselves through Facebook Messenger, challenging friends and keeping track of who's on top via the game's leaderboard.

SNES Party lets you play classic ROMs with friends online
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 12:20 pm

Nintendo promised online play for the retro games it'll make available via the Switch's online service, but if you'd rather not wait until this September for that, there's an unofficial way to play games of yore over the internet. It's through an emulator called SNES Party. "SNES Party is an experimental way to play SNES games with your friends online all from within your browser using WebRTC," the developers write. It works pretty well too.

Tropico 6 moves to next year, looks a lot like a Tropico game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 10:01 am
Sure, sure, Tropico games are about as indistinguishable from each other as the founding staff of a PC games website circa 2007, but I can forgive that. There’s just something about their sun-kissed, low-stakes, silly-but-not-too-silly take on city-building. Every couple of years I really feel the itch to comfort-blanket myself with one, and lo and […]

The best consoles and games to play in the dorm
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 10:30 am

The last thing you want to do after spending hours staring at your laptop studying is spend more time staring at your laptop when you want to play a game or watch a movie. That's where game consoles come in. The Xbox One S starts at $244 on Amazon, while Microsoft regularly marks down the price of its entry-level system to around $200. In addition to being the place to play Halo and Gears of War, it's also an incredibly capable media machine thanks to its built-in UHD Blu-ray drive and support for HDR video. Plus, you might not have to spend any money on games for it: If you had a huge collection of digital games on the Xbox 360, Microsoft has made a swath of them playable on the One.

It also means there are tons of used disc-based titles that will perform and play better on the Xbox as well. Specifically, the Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year Edition is the best example of what an old game can look like on new hardware. If you opt for the new route, it'll only set you back $20. When you consider how much there is to see and do Rockstar's open-world take on the Old West, it's a veritable circus of value. And really, what better way is there to get ready for the sequel which comes out in late October?

If you're in the PlayStation camp but somehow still haven't picked up a PlayStation 4, give the $300 PS4 Slim a look. It's sleeker and quieter overall compared to the 2013 model, and it's the only place you can play this fall's incredibly promising Spider-man game. The new Greatest Hits program slashed the price on some of the system's best games, which can make your gaming dollar stretch even further.

As good as those two consoles are, playing them between classes requires a trip back to your dorm. That's not the case with the Nintendo Switch. It's small and light enough to toss into your bag before leaving that you might not even feel it. Plus, it starts up and powers off quickly, making it easy to get back to the field you were clearing in Stardew Valley before English 256 started. By the time you get home for the day, you can slide the hybrid console into its dock and watch a few episodes of The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu before nodding off to sleep to your TV.

Find all of our picks for console in our 2018 back-to-school guide and while you're there, check out our 100-plus picks in 13 other categories.

Fish tycoon Megaquarium splashes out in September
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 7:49 am
Why did the fish stop arguing with the barnacle? Because she didn’t like to coral. Why did the shark always consult his horoscope? He was the terror of the Pisces. Why was the shipwreck annoyed with its partner? It had crabs. Okay so Megaquarium is a fishkeeping tycoon game from the makers of Big Pharma […]

Sniper Ghost Warrior contracts with Contracts
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 8:00 am
After dreaming big Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, developers CI Games have decided that there’s little practical difference between targets being far away or simply small, and accordingly announced Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts. After making a big fancy open-world in GW3, this time they’re thinking smaller with- hang on, they mean contracts as a noun, not […]

Wot I Think: Flipping Death
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 8:00 am
If the humor of Psychonauts, the mechanics of Paper Mario, and the wacky, noodly designs of Dr. Seuss had a love child, I think it’d look a lot like Flipping Death. A platformer, puzzle, and adventure game all in one (to various success), the developers have been so inspired by Tim Schafer’s work over the […]

The Flare Path: A Filch of Foxers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 8:00 am
The Flare Path turns seven this week. Here in the UK that means its base chance of spotting fairies decreases to 0.4%, and, in the event of it being arrested for murder or treason, it can no longer opt to be tried by a jury of stuffed toys and action figures. Growing up is a […]

Monster Hunter: World guide: monster hunting basics, combat tips
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2018, 8:46 am
With Monster Hunter: World recently being released on PC, it can be a little daunting for new players who hadn’t played any of the previous games in the series. Console players have had at most a decade’s head start with new things being introduced steadily, but for PC players there’s a lot of concepts which can seem […]
