Welcome back to What Are You Playing, the game where we tell you what we’re playing this weekend and you tell us insert joke here. Wait… what? It says that? Oh, dear. I’m sorry, readers, we never expected this to happen and never planned for it. The reality is that no one comes up with these headers, I just run [...]

Free Loaders: Cheat On Your High School Exams (Again)
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2016, 7:00 am
Remember the high school examination hall? The sweat, the terror, the little crib notes you wrote on the inside of your shirt pocket. Don’t lie to me, I know you did it. There’s no way you passed physics without scribbling ‘F=MA’ on the sole of your left boot. All right, all right, let’s say you […]


The Daily Grind: What makes you excited to log into your MMO?
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2016, 8:00 am
I love it when my interest in an MMO hits those occasional spikes where I’m logging in not just because it’s what I do every day but because I’m genuinely excited to play. That may sound terrible, but MMOs are long-term experiences that often contain peaks and valleys of interest as you play through them. For me, getting excited over [...]

What Are We All Playing This Weekend?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2016, 5:00 am
Hello again, chums! Just to let you know, we’ll be a bit quiet on Monday as it’s a bank holiday in most of the UK. For non-United Kingdomeers, I’ll explain: we have eight holidays each year dedicated to those lovely, lovely bankers who do so much for us all. Children parade giant papier mâché pound […]

Progress from 'NBA 2K17' demo carries over to the full game
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 August 2016, 9:24 pm
Game demos are awesome, but they're usually the intro section of any given game. More than that, once you actually have the retail version, you're stuck working through the same portion of the game over again before getting to the meat of the experience. Playing early is a double-edged sword. NBA 2K17 is doing something different come September 9th, though. With "The Prelude," you'll have early access to the basketball game's career mode and will be able to play college games, interact with coaches during the mini-narrative and affect how you'll start MyCareer when the game arrives.

Betawatch: Star Citizen gets persistent (August 26, 2016)
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 August 2016, 8:00 pm
Depending on your definitions, Star Citizen is already pretty persistent. For example, it’s already persistently crowdfunding, persistently putting out new ships for the price of a used car, and persistently drawing accusations of “scam” from people who don’t know what scams are. But its persistent universe got some love with the most recent gameplay trailer. Yes, there’s actually a game [...]

Destiny charity stream raises over $500,000

Kudos to Destiny fans: They may be passionate about their game, but they are also big on helping others. A week-long charity stream organized by some of the game’s popular streamers pulled in over $500,000 for the St. Jude Children’s Hospital. That finally tally more than doubled the $200,000 goal. Fans weren’t the only ones cranking up the total near [...]

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to discuss the inner workings of their games. This time, N++ [official site]. What makes Metanet’s long-running N series different to other platformers? Each level takes place on a single screen, and that makes it uncommon, but certainly not unique. It focuses on acrobatic avoidance of […]

Sorry, Russia: Master Chief is turning his back on you after all. Announced a year and a half ago, Halo Online had some fans of the franchise excited, even if Microsoft was only developing the game for Russia. It’s all past tense now, as the software giant has decided to kill the online shooter. Gamasutra reports that one of the local [...]

Wot I Think: Valley
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 August 2016, 2:00 pm
Rare’s the game that has me really, truly laughing in sheer delight one minute, then cursing in irritation the next. First-person action-adventure Valley [official site] is full of wonderful ideas and has truly excellent movement, but it also jumps the shark so many times over the course of its few short hours that the poor […]

This is a portrait of Rixx based on his avatar using only words. I've been wanting to do one of these for a long time, but I wasn't 100% sure how to do it. So I spent the last two days watching a few tutorials and seeing how other people make them. Thing
