Have You Played… The Hidden?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 11:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The Hidden is crying out for a standalone revival. Released just over ten years ago, it was an asymmetrical Half-Life 2 multiplayer mod that turned a squad of machinegun-wielding military grunts into fragile prey for one […]

After researching more than 60 gaming mice, testing 12 with the help of four panelists, and playing over 50 hours of Overwatch with them, we've concluded the Razer DeathAdder Elite is the best gaming mouse for most people. Our panel testers preferred the DeathAdder Elite for its simplicity and its comfort through extended gaming sessions, which isn't surprising considering previous models of the DeathAdder have been our picks for years.

Vermintide 2 mod tools expected in late April
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 8:54 am
I’ve barely scratched Warhammer: Vermintide 2 yet myself but, if you’re hacking through fiendish hordes at an alarming pace and are starting to wonder when the planned mod support might arrive: late April is the current plan. That’s what developers Fatshark told cheery RPS fan zine PC Gamer, in a chat which also touched on […]

Welcome back, weary travellers, to another batch of the week’s absolute best PC gaming deals, which this week also includes a few bits of other ‘this is rather nice’ offers.

EGX Rezzed is just over a month away, and announcements for things to see and do at the lovely games event are coming thick and fast. For example: this post, in which I let slip that Adam will be on stage during the show to talk to Subset Games’ co-founder Matthew Davis about his work […]

The CSM 13 Election Season Begins Monday

What I deem the EVE silly season, known to players who know about the event as the Council of Stellar Management elections, officially kicks off this year on Monday, 19 March. Once again, I plan to cover the event both here on The Nosy Gamer as well as on

A 'Narcos' video game is on the way for PC and consoles
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 9:26 am

A video game version of Pablo Escobar could grace your monitors, asking a poor guy whether he prefers "plata o plomo" (silver or lead), as soon as next year. Narcos producer Gaumont has forged a deal with British game publisher Curve Digital to develop a video game adaptation of the hit Netflix series. Curve's sister company Kuju -- some of its better-known titles include Art Academy and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance -- will be doing the actual development, but it's still unclear what kind of game the adaptation would be.

Good news for Intel fans this morning. PC security flaws and definitely not James Bond movie titles Spectre and Meltdown will likely be largely eradicated in future hardware releases, the CPU giant’s CEO Brian Krzanich has said in a blog post. We suspected this would probably be the case when the flaws were first unveiled […]

Ubisoft revives 'Might & Magic' as a mobile strategy RPG
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 8:29 am

Might & Magic is back, but not in the way you were probably hoping for. Ubisoft has revived the beloved RPG series as a mobile battler called Might & Magic: Elemental Guardians, chock-full of colorful and chibi-esque creatures to collect. The first batch of screenshots reveal a four-person party and various wave-based opponents to dispatch. Ubisoft is promising a "fast-paced strategic battle RPG" with a Pokémon-style elemental system, monster evolution (from "loyal" to "legendary") and customizable Glyph equips. In combat, though, it seems each monster is limited to three abilities — pre-battle prep, then, is probably where the real depth lies.

Pokémon Go players can use Facebook to log in and sync devices
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 4:02 am

Niantic is making it easier to log into Pokémon Go, perhaps in an effort to prevent you from giving up on the game completely if you don't play for long stretches of time. You can now link Pokémon Go with your Facebook account, so you don't have to spend time trying to remember a password you invented on the fly when you signed up. By linking your accounts, you'll easily be able to access your game and progress across multiple devices. You'll also be able to continue accessing your game even if you signed up using a university or work email address you might lose access to in the future.

Neo Cab is a tale of emotional survival in a dying industry
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 March 2018, 4:31 pm
Survival in games has become synonymous with simplistic managing of resources in order to stave off the entropic forces that come for all of us. Neo Cab, from Californian studio Chance Agency looks to put a much more human and relatable spin on the concept. Neo Cab is a game about being one of the […]

All rise and no fall: how Civilization reinforces a dangerous myth
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 March 2018, 5:00 pm
Civilization VI: Rise and Fall wants to solve a problem. That problem is perpetual growth, and it plagues many 4X games. Whether your aim is world conquest or cultural hegemony, victory in Civilization and many of its cohorts depends on domination. However peacefully you try to play, you’re often straight-jacketed into a utilitarian-psychotic view where […]

We think it’s safe to say that more Prey is on the way
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 March 2018, 5:25 pm
Huzzah for rhyming headlines! Yesterday, we reported on a series of increasingly overt teasers coming from Arkane Studios, not-so-subtly hinting that they’re not quite done with System Shock-ish immersive sim Prey. Today, they dropped almost all pretense. It’s March 15th, the day that Prey’s story begins on (at least according to the robo-voiced alarm clock that […]

Renomine! Wiz-school RPG Spellbound now Witchbrook
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 March 2018, 6:08 pm
A name carries power in the world of games. It often sets the tone of a piece, determines just how many puns RPS can get out of it before having to play it straight, and (in some less fortunate cases) may invite legal eagles to peck out a developer’s eyes. The game formerly known as […]

Two major eSports players associations are in the works
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 March 2018, 6:17 pm

There are two players associations being put together for professional competitors who play Overwatch and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Sports Business Journal reports. The latter will include players in the ESL Pro League and the FACEIT ECS league and is being helmed by eSports broadcaster Scott "SirScoots" Smith and attorney Michael Doi. Smith told Sports Business Journal that the Counter-Strike Professional Players Association (CSPPA) won't be seeking to become a US union since Counter-Strike players span the globe but it is looking to sign the over 225 players that participate professionally. "Every day I sign another guy," he said. "I would say 70 or so have signed an official membership document that they are for the players association, are behind the players association, they want to be in the players association."

Paratopic is some fine low-fi vignette-y horror
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 March 2018, 1:34 pm
My favourite sections of Paratopic are the road trip, driving through the quiet city towards the sunset and into strange lands beyond. After some of the things I’d seen in other parts of the vignette ’em up, the shadowy figures and cursed VHS tapes, it was comforting to flick the radio on to semisensical chat […]

Tomorrow Corporation, them folks behind Little Inferno and the upcoming 7 Billion Humans, and whose staff have the likes of World of Goo, assorted EA things and Henry Hatsworth on their storied CVs, are at it again. ‘It’ tends to mean playfully exploring the outer boundaries of what makes a game a game, but apparently […]

Steelseries Rival 600 review: Worth its weight in gold?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 March 2018, 2:00 pm
How much would you normally spend on a mouse? £10? $20? Maybe even £30 if I’d been particularly stung (or should that be bitten?) by a dodgy mouse in the past, but it would have to be a really good one for me to consider spending more. Indeed, if you thought shelling out £70 for the Asus ROG […]
