GOG to re-launch Galaxy client as a universal gaming hub
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 3:51 pm
Always ones to have their eye on new niches, GOG – once focused on the preservation and distribution of old DOS games – have just announced that their Galaxy launcher is getting an overhaul. Galaxy 2.0, as they’re calling it, claims to keep track of your entire games library whether it’s on Steam, Epic, GOG […]


Dauntless launches out of beta with full cross-platform play
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 1:57 pm
Lightweight and cartoony free-to-play Monster Hunter-alike Dauntless has made the leap from a long open beta to cross-platform launch today. Releasing simultaneously on PC, Xbox One and PS4 (with a Switch version due later), players are free to use one account to play on all systems, and party up with people on other platforms. For […]


Ritual Of The Moon diary: day 19
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 1:00 pm
Ritual Of The Moon takes around five minutes a day to play, for 28 days. Today is day 19 of my diary. Look, I’m very busy again today. I’m back from being on holiday and nothing is finished, and I have to stay late tonight for unrelated reasons anyway. I don’t understand those people who […]


Bus Simulator 18 rolling along new roads in map expansion
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 1:02 pm
While Bus Simulator 18 hasn’t captured my heart in the same way as American Truck Simulator, I’m fond enough of it to return to the nonspecific European city of Seaside Valley for its first expansion. Released today, it expands the map with new areas: a picturesque mountain village along winding roads in the countryside, the […]


Wastes Of Space: A Space Engineers Diary – Part Four: The Space Race
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 12:00 pm
Last time on Wastes Of Space: The RPS crew managed to firm up their toehold in the alien hills of Horace’s World, under the tutelage of their peculiar assistance droid, ODD. Survey Officer Ligz went on an ill-fated mineral-seeking expedition, Science Officer Cox decided he was a god, and the increasingly authoritarian Security Officer Crowley […]


Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble advances to war on PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 12:06 pm
The rise of Advance Wars-alikes on PC continues later this year with Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble. Sequel to Area 35’s original Tiny Metal (released in late 2017), it looks like more of the same – chunky polygon graphics wrapped around a familiar light strategy formula and an overbearingly anime storyline. This time round, they’re […]


Steam Chat launches new mobile app
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 9:57 am
Of all the chat clients and apps and sites I use across my professional and personal lives, Steam is the only one that hasn’t lived on my pocket telephone because, well, the Steam mobile app is pretty bleh. Reader dear, fret no more about missing Dota invitations or confusing late-night messages from people you used […]


Dwarf Fortress Diary: The Basement Of Curiosity Episode Twelve – Pressure Cooker
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 10:00 am
This is The Basement Of Curiosity, a weekly Dwarf Fortress diary chronicling Nate Crowley’s attempts to build an illegal, underground zoo in everyone’s favourite text based dwarf management game. Last Time on the BoC: After a catastrophic goblin attack slaughtered the entire military (except Id), as well as their bloodthirsty mayor/captain, the Basement began a […]


Fortnite’s Fortbyte challenges have been going for nearly three weeks now and today asks you to get excited about ice cream. Found west of the racetrack, the ice cream shop has been modernised a little bit, but is in the same place it’s always been. If you know where to look, and we will tell […]


Grid returning to the starting grid with Grid
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 11:01 am
Codemasters will whip the dust sheet off their Grid racing series in September with a new game named simply Grid (technically, 2008’s series-starting game known commonly as Grid was Race Driver: Grid). It’s been five years since, Grid: Autosport, the last game in their multidisciplinary racing series. If you want to go parp parp now, […]


Valve making Dota Auto Chess mod into standalone game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 9:09 am
Dota Auto Chess, the most popular mod in Dota 2 these days (and which has nothing to do with chess), is becoming a standalone game made by Valve themselves. I had not predicted that this would be Valve’s next game. Valve say they talked with mod creators Drodo Studio about working together and, while dreams […]


THQ Nordic buy Gothic and Risen creators Piranha Bytes
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 6:51 am
THQ Nordic continue to hoover up studios and games that make many go “Oh huh, yeah, they could be neat,” today announcing they’ve bought Piranha Bytes. They’re the German studio who created Gothic, Risen, and Elex, three open-world RPG series with varying degrees of promise and wonk that make many go “Oh huh, yeah, they […]


Have You Played… Hacknet?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 3:37 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Many years ago, when I traipsed the streets of Belfast city with the menacing incisors of a 15-year-old who did not get braces when he should have done so, I often met with a pal and […]


Ace Combat 7 now supports a few more flight sticks
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 5:10 am
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown features a veteran fighter pilot whose full name is Mihaly Dumitru Margareta Corneliu Leopold Blanca Karol Aeon Ignatius Raphael Maria Niketas A. Shilage. That’s fabulous. It’s also got plenty of smashing dogfight action. But you know what it doesn’t have? Support for most flight sticks. That’s disappointing. However, there are […]


Overwatch celebrates three years with old brawls, new looks and a free trial
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 5:35 pm
Overwatch has now been kicking around the multiplayer shooter scene for three years, although it feels like longer, thanks to the game’s constant barrage of seasonal updates and events. Blizzard are kicking off their anniversary celebrations with a trial week, so anyone still on the fence can try the game free here, and newcomers will […]


Beat Saber bops out of early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 7:01 pm
Beat Saber‘s $100 Bills is an obnoxious song that I cannot remove from my brain. It’s the musical equivalent of a bloke sidling up to you in a pub and asking if you want to see his armpits. Fortunately, Beat Saber has other songs, and makes slicing beats so satisfying that sometimes I don’t even […]


The Longest Journey looks great for its age with new texture mod
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 3:51 pm
Even two decades after its release, The Longest Journey hasn’t lost its hold on players’ imaginations. Except now, satisfying that nostalgia fix doesn’t have to mean stomaching those 1999 graphics thanks to a high-res makeover mod released last week.


Path Of Exile: Legion invites players to beat up all of NotValhalla
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 5:00 pm
The Domain Of Timeless Conflict, centrepiece of Path Of Exile‘s upcoming free Legion update, isn’t quite the mead-swilling viking afterlife, but it’s close enough to be worth invading and looting. It’ll hit Grinding Gear Games’s free-to-play action RPG on June 7th and replaces the current (and controversial) Synthesis league. Legion adds a new quarterly source […]


Origin offering The Sims 4 for the low price of free
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 5:24 pm
Since its launch in 2014, The Sims 4 has received a steady diet of add-ons and updates, making it one of EA’s longest-lasting games. Now there’s no excuse not to check out what all the fuss is about because you can get the base game for free on Origin for the next week.


Atelier Lulua: The Scion Of Arland revives a 10-year-old crafting RPG series
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 1:52 pm
Even as a fan of RPGs myself, the Atelier Arland series and I have been like two ships passing in the night. Starcrossed by both my limited schedule and the role-playing genre’s requirement that I sacrifice the equivalent of a small child’s lifetime to complete any one game. And that’s just with a single playthrough. […]


American Fugitive raises a ruckus on PC today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 1:55 pm
When American Fugitive was announced – a game about escaping from jail, staying one step ahead of the cops and avenging your dad’s death – I didn’t expect it to be as big a tribute to Grand Theft Auto as we’ve got at launch today, despite obvious similarities. Still, those looking for something more in […]


Ritual Of The Moon diary: day 18
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 2:00 pm
Ritual Of The Moon takes around five minutes a day to play, for 28 days. Today is day 18 of my diary. Alright, yesterday was depressing and made some of you sad (buddy, if you think reproductive healthcare bums you out, imagine how some of the rest of us feel!). But today I’m actually feeling […]


Cities: Skylines enrols Campus expansion
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 3:00 pm
Laid-back city-builder Cities: Skylines today enters the period of supreme slack with the addition of universities in its latest expansion. ‘Campus’ is its name, and building campuses is its game. You too can establish fine educational establishments for students to doss about, build sports arenas for them to shout in, and shape your city’s policies […]


In case you’re running low on good feels, this news packs a healthy dose: In the last week, two players got their dying wishes answered thanks to the help of Reddit. In one of those too-rare instances of the internet being a pretty ok place, users rallied and now a 26-year-old cancer patient will get […]


AMD Navi GPUs could be revealed as early as next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 11:51 am
Well, so much for waiting until June for the reveal of AMD’s Navi GPUs at their big E3 event, as the latest rumours suggest we could see two Navi GPUs announce themselves to the world in less than a week – mostly likely when AMD take to the stage at this year’s big Computex tech […]
