Ghost Update now haunting Subnautica
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 August 2017, 4:11 am
When I get emails with the subject “Ghost Update” it is usually Alice pointing out something important from the latest issue of our favourite ghost magazine – the angel who was also potentially a surfer dude or the couple who kept having little arguments with each other and past life regression revealed that they had […]

A whole level of Echo is good for explaining Echo
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 August 2017, 4:33 am
Echo [official site] is a third person sci-fi action game which, as descriptions go… so far so doesn’t-tell-you-anything-interesting. But its big point of difference is that you are the enemy you are trying to beat. It’s an idea which, reading about it, reminded me of specific levels within other games – stuff like the Dark Link […]

HP's first Omen X gaming laptop is built for overclocking
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 August 2017, 3:00 am

With an over-the-top gaming desktop, you expect certain things: lots of overclocking potential, expansion, a mechanical keyboard... and, of course, windows and RGB lighting to show it off. Some laptops already include a few of those features, but all of them? That was rare... until now, at least. HP is unveiling its first laptop with Omen X branding (the appropriately-titled Omen X Laptop), and it's clear this is built for gamers who can't bear to part with what they're used to on desktops.

Nintendo's second 'Classic' console is better, but not perfect
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 August 2017, 4:00 am

When Nintendo announced that the already impossible to find NES Classic Edition was going out of production, there were two reactions: outrage that the company could introduce such a popular product and fail to meet demand, and curiosity -- why would Nintendo kill off the most popular throwback console ever made?

The official line is that it was never intended to be a long-term product, but in the months that followed, you had to wonder if the original retro console was merely discontinued to make way for a sequel: The Super Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition.

Now, that console is almost ready to hit the market, and Nintendo promises that it will make up for the original's shortcomings. The company expects to ship "significantly more" of the new console than the original. And we hope it does -- because if the short preview we had with the console last week is any indication, it's going to sell just as fast as its predecessor.

Anomic Update Blood Cruor

I ran the Anomic Agent – Blood Raider Cruor mission yesterday on Tranquility to see what all the fuss was about. In hindsight I should have run it on Singularity, the test server, but how bad could it be right? I checked the kill boards and there

'Life is Strange: Before the Storm' trailer showcases its story
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 August 2017, 12:47 am

Since Max and her time traveling powers won't be in Life is Strange's upcoming prequel, you might be wondering what to expect. Well, this new trailer out of Germany's Gamescom expo can give you a pretty good idea of what Before the Storm is all about. While Max was out of the picture three years before the events in the first game, her best friend Chloe found another friend in Rachel Amber -- yes, that Rachel -- who leads a double life.

A year ago, Electronic Arts kicked off its indie publishing program EA Originals by announcing an intriguing gem: Fe, created by studio Zoink from Gothenberg, Sweden.

Every NFL team is involved in EA's 'Madden' eSports tournament
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 August 2017, 2:39 pm

You've seen conventional sports teams dip their toes in the eSports waters before, but probably not like this. EA is launching the Madden NFL Club Championship today, and it'll have official involvement from all 32 NFL teams -- the first time an American sports league has fully committed itself to an eSports tournament. You'll qualify online in Madden 18 between now and October 16th, but the best players will square off in tournaments in the stadiums for each team. The final 32 players will compete at NFL experiences in Orlando and Minneapolis. And if you win? You'll get both a cash prize and two tickets to (what else?) Super Bowl LII.

Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 August 2017, 3:03 pm

When we played Ruiner during the Xbox showcase at GDC back in February, we compared it to a 3D, highly polished version of Hotline Miami. The cyberpunk-themed, top-down action game sets you up to kill the boss while taking out enemies who swarm in from doorways and narrow hallways. Ruiner is now ready to launch on September 26th on PC, Xbox and PlayStation. The team has also released a teaser trailer to whet your appetite and show off the rapid-fire gameplay and dystopian setting.

BioShock is ten years old! The first-person shooter set in the underwater city of Rapture was released on August 21, 2007 in North America (and on the 24th elsewhere), and I’ve been digging through RPS’s archives for the things we wrote about the game upon its release.
