Boo! Rusty Lake release Cube Escape: Paradox and short film
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2018, 9:34 am
I’m calling it: Halloween seasons starts now. I’ve just hung a spooky lantern in the hallway and the spooky-ooky Rusty Lake gang today released not only a new altogether kooky adventure game but a live-action short film too. Ghost time is go. Cube Escape: Paradox is out now, offering its first chapter free so we […]


Wot I Think: CrossCode
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2018, 10:00 am
Developer: Radical Fish Games Publisher: Deck13 Release: Out now On: Windows, Mac From: Steam, Itch.io, Humble, GOG Price: £15, $20, 20€ Satirical website Hard Drive once ran a story which poked fun at the long, drawn-out nature of most RPGs. In a hard-hitting investigative report, one player was commended for finally “getting to the good […]


Just Cause 4 vid shows 19 minutes of sandbox shenanigans
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2018, 7:48 am
A new 19-minute gameplay video of Just Cause 4 shows the devs larking about flying, gliding, shooting, detonating, turning a tank into an airship using balloons, and somehow repurposing a radar tower as a car-launching catapult. Sure, our boy Brendy has told us about some of this foolishness before but now I’ve seen it for […]


Red Dead Online announced but still no word on PC release
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2018, 5:44 am
Red Dead Online has been announced by Rockstar (as if it was ever in doubt) and they say it’ll be an “evolution” of the rootin’ tootin’ multiplayer in the first Red Dead Redemption. In other words, a big online version of the open world in Red Dead Redemption 2, where you can trot about on […]


Valve to start moderating Steam’s game forums
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2018, 6:55 am
Much of the Internet is awful, everyone agrees, though people disagree about exactly which parts are the bad ones. This becomes a problem when you need to venture into one of the bad places, perhaps to search a game’s Steam forum for a solution to a problem. Oh no! Now you’re wading through a swamp […]


Come watch RPS become streaming superstars at EGX 2018
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2018, 7:00 am
That rumbling sound you hear is half of Brighton packing its bags as Gamer Network decamps to Birmingham for EGX 2018. And the Rock, Paper, Shotgun Video Department will be at the show, too. We’ve decided to try our hand at ‘livestreaming’, which is basically video without safety nets. I’ve heard it’s quite popular these […]


Minit consumes your precious time in gleefully silly ways
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2018, 4:00 am
Chances are you’ve caught wind of Minit between its initial release and the clamor for a Switch port. It’s a wee, wonderful, one-bit adventure where, thanks to a cursed blade, you die every 60 seconds. While it’s a romping hoot of a game, it also blatantly wastes your time. I mean that in a good […]


Tactical seafaring roguelike RPG Depth Of Extinction rises from the depths soon
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 5:21 pm
Take XCOM’s squad combat, mash it up with a post-apocalyptic roguelike, add a dash of FTL and you’ve got something that looks a lot like HOF Studios’s Depth Of Extinction. Due for launch “soon” – possibly even this month – this one has flown just under my radar. Not too surprising, given that it’s set partially […]


Super Pilot is F-Zero with a level editor and out now in early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 6:16 pm
Super Pilot is classic Nintendo racer F-Zero (either X or GX is up for debate) with a level editor, and developers Dopagames don’t care to hide that at all. Race around at a thousand miles an hour against dozens of bots, defy gravity, shoot off the track and explode in a cloud of flaming glory, […]


Magic: The Gathering Arena opens its doors to all next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 4:25 pm
Magic: The Gathering might be the great granddaddy of card-battlers, but it’s still cool, dammit – you’ll be able to see for yourself when Magic: The Gathering Arena enters open beta next week. You kids may have your Hearthstones, your Eternals and even your Slay The Spires, but there’s still nothing quite like passively aggressing […]


The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep is a shoddy old mess burying some nice ideas
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 2:00 pm
Developer: inExile Entertainment Publisher: inExile Entertainment Release: Out now On: Windows From: Steam Price: £28, $35, 35€ Are you nostalgic for The Bard’s Tale? I certainly played them back between 1985 and 1988, but being under 10, that was a very long time ago. I don’t really remember them with any special degree of affection. […]


THQ Nordic buy Alone In The Dark and Act Of War series, might consider sequels
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 2:27 pm
Continuing to hoover up every neglected video game series that’s remembered half-fondly, THQ Nordic today announced they’re buying the rights to horror series Alone In The Dark and Eugen’s real-time strategy ’em up Act Of War. These two had been owned by The Creature Wearing The Skin Of Atari – who largely seem poor carers […]


Dangen Entertainment storm BitSummit with a bevy of tasty trailers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 3:20 pm
Little publisher Dangen Entertainment landed at BitSummit in Tokyo yesterday with a swarm of exciting trailers in tow. Among their lineup at the Japanese event was the freshly announced Minoria (latest from the creators of the excellent Momodora series) and Thunder Force-inspired shmup Devil Engine. They also had trailers for speedy platformer Renaine and its […]


Rising Storm 2: Vietnam adds multi-map Multiplayer Campaign mode
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 1:27 pm
“You may have won the battle,” cries an unusually eloquent trash-talker on the other team, “but you haven’t won the war!” In Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, his anachronistic cussing-out may now actually be correct. A free update to the first-person shooter today added the new ‘Multiplayer Campaign’ mode, where 64 players fight across multiple maps […]


New maps, tanks, planes and a helicopter beta in War Thunder’s “The Valkyries” update
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 1:32 pm
Helicopters! And just like that, you can hear Wagner already, right? As of today’s big update – “The Valkyries” – they’re now in free-to-play vehicular war sim War Thunder, joining a legion of tanks, a swarm of planes and a slowly growing bathtub of boats. Five choppers (and a fistful of variants) are now available […]


Wot I Think: The Gardens Between
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 11:00 am
The Gardens Between is all about reminiscing. It plays like two friends talking about all the adventures they’ve had, with the conversation flowing as they remember details and go back over stories that’ve grown with the telling. “Do you remember…?” it seems to say. “Oh yes, but before that-!” “And of course there was the […]


Preside over a new disaster in Frostpunk’s new free story expansion
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 11:21 am
If you’ve not already had (and caused) your fill of tragedy and disaster in Frostpunk, you might want to check out the fate of another doomed settlement in the apocalyptic survival manage ’em up with a new free expansion released today. Set before Frostpunk’s main campaign, ‘The Fall Of Winterhome’ explores a place you’ll have […]


Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti review-in-progress: A true 4K monster card
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 11:46 am
For the three of you whose goal in life has only ever been to play games on max settings at 4K with nary a drop in frame rate at 60fps, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti is a dream come true. A rather expensive £1049 / $1150 dream, all told, but a dream nonetheless. For this 4K monster […]


Has Divinity: Original Sin 2 been improved by its updates?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 12:00 pm
Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they’ve been changed for better or worse. I’m being stalked by six-legged space demons, I’m on the run from the fantasy police, and my chosen deity is being slowed squeezed to death by a spectral tree, but my biggest problem […]


Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 review-in-progress: Too much power for a Core i5 PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 9:00 am
This time tomorrow, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 will have finally arrived. There’s been a lot of fanfare around its quite nifty ray-tracing tech, not to mention all the other cool things Nvidia’s Turing cards can do, but is it really the best graphics card of all time? At the moment, it’s hard to say […]


Have You Played… Rayman 2: The Great Escape?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I’ll always remember Rayman 2: The Great Escape as a deeply strange alien world. Anyone could be around the next corner, from a friendly sea monster who’d let you water-ski on them to a terrifying robo-pirate […]


Wot I Think: FIFA 19
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 8:00 am
Developer: EA Vancouver Publisher: EA Release: September 28, 2018 On: Windows From: Origin Price: £54.99, $59.99, 59.99€ For a series that’s been running for over 20 years, it’s no minor statement to say that the latest iteration has brought back the fun. You already know how enormous the series is, you are likely aware of […]


Investigate a post-human revolution in Subserial Network
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 7:25 am
Subserial Network came out as part of June’s Humble Bundle, and again on Itch nearly two weeks ago, but we forgot to tell you and it sounds fascinating so I’m telling you about it now. It’s set in a post-human society that’s hung up on hominids, where robo-citizens have the means to upload their consciousness […]


Exapunks adds 9 more puzzles about dirty hackers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2018, 6:05 am
Matthew Broderick simulator Exapunks got a sizeable update yesterday, adding nine more puzzles to the code scribbling hack ‘em up. Developers Zachtronics are calling this a bonus campaign, since it focuses not on the AI pal who features in the main story, but on the hacker pals who appear in a chatroom between levels. In […]


Nippon Ichi’s old-school dungeon crawl Labyrinth Of Refrain: Coven Of Dusk is out now
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 September 2018, 6:16 pm
Big numbers, big monsters, big dungeons and big anime… character sprites. Labyrinth Of Refrain: Coven Of Dusk is exactly what you’d expect from Disgaea studio Nippon Ichi Software taking on the Wizardry-styled dungeon crawler genre. It’s an RPG about excess – huge parties of player-made characters with honking great stat sheets, exploring a massive grid-based […]
