Try first-person fishman-botherer Fish’s demo
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 October 2017, 4:00 pm
It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Doom-era FPS design. The combination of speed, simplicity and scalability is a heady mix that holds strong to this day, as demonstrated by the multitude of recent attempts to recapture that feel through the likes of Devil Daggers, Dusk, Strafe and Overload, as well as […]

Black Future ’88 promises excessive synthcore roguery
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 October 2017, 2:00 pm
Not too long ago, I’d while away many an idle afternoon crunching my way through arcade games via emulation. Nowadays, that niche in my life is filled by a seemingly endless procession of action-roguelikes, offering that twitch action fix with the promise of a fresh set of challenges each time. The latest to catch my […]

UK orders shutdown of online casino games aimed at kids
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 October 2017, 1:58 pm

Have you ever seen a gambling machine or website that was all too conspicuously aimed at children? British regulators certainly have. The country's Gambling Commission and advertising overseers have ordered over 450 gambling sites to "immediately" remove casino games they say are targeting the under-18 crowd. The cartoonish graphics, cute characters and even game names (such as Piggy Payout) serve as gambling advertising that's "likely" to appeal to kids, according to an official letter. And these aren't just free titles -- bets range as high as £600 (about $792), so this could be particularly damaging if a child got access.

Honest Trailers – Star Trek: The Next Generation
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 October 2017, 2:15 pm
Somehow I missed the 30th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation last month.  But Honest Trailers was on the job. I remain on the Kirk side of the debate.

Skulldash brings high-pressure arcade thrills to Doom
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 October 2017, 11:00 am
This is Doom. You know this. The rhythms have been burnt into your DNA by this point: Gun, demons, maze, exit. Now add a ticking time limit forcing careful target prioritisation and precise movement and a level full of floating tokens which require collection (most of them, at least) before the exit will reveal itself. This is Skulldash: […]

What To Do With Left Over Pickle Juice
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2017, 8:47 am
I love things pickled. One of my favourite things to eat pickled (besides, you know, pickles) is pickled eggs but they’re quite pricey. A small jar will typically run about $15 (Canadian). Turns out...

The Result Of Squirt Day

I had a really hard time finding Pepe for some reason. On my priest that used to be horde but transferred to Alliance he was no where to be found – so I relogged...

Shin Megami Tensei comes to PC as a free Metroidvania
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 October 2017, 8:00 am
The long-running Shin Megami Tensei series has worn many strange hats over the years. From singular (and now defunct) PC MMO to handheld dungeon crawlers and even spinning off into the mega-popular multi-genre Persona line, there are few unifying elements behind the series outside of adorable snow-sprite Jack Frost. To promote the upcoming 3DS re-release of SMT: […]

The Sunday Papers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 October 2017, 6:00 am
Sundays are for hoping your kid stops being sick sometime soon. Writing, videogames, go. Headline of the week: The Runescape players who farm gold so they don’t starve to death.

Party Hard Tycoon replaces murder with management
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 October 2017, 4:00 am
2015’s Party Hard was a decent little distraction, and the ultimate excuse to crank up Andrew W.K’s Ready to Die to obnoxious levels. A light, stealthy-puzzle game where you play as a disgruntled serial killer trying to very permanently break up overly loud parties that have been interrupting your sleep. So it only stands to […]

Windows 10 now includes anti-cheat protection for games
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2017, 11:04 pm

Windows 10's Fall Creators Update is full of changes, but one of the understated additions could make a big difference if you're a gamer. Microsoft has switched on its previously teased TruePlay feature, which promises to protect against "common" cheats in Universal Windows Platform games. Titles that take advantage of the safeguard will both run in a protected mode and trigger a background service that watches for typical cheating behavior. If they find anything amiss, they'll send data to the developer. You can switch off TruePlay if you're nervous about Windows transmitting your data, but companies can limit what you're allowed to do (playing online, for example) if you don't have it enabled.

Spelunker Party puts a friendly face on ’80s masocore
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2017, 5:00 pm
Look at that picture above. It’s inviting. It’s bright. It features charming, bouncy kid-friendly characters and a variety of adorable pets including a multitude of kitties and puppers. This is the very image of a casual, easygoing family game. It’s even coming to Switch, backed up by the exact same marketing. Spelunker Party must have murdered […]

Hyakki Castle is Japan’s answer to Legend Of Grimrock
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2017, 1:00 pm
It’s always nice to see a familiar concept filtered through another culture’s lens, and the recently announced Hyakki Castle seems just what the doctor ordered for Legend of Grimrock fans wanting another fix of dungeon exploration, party-building and monster-mashing, and it’s less than a month away. Coming from new Japanese outfit Asakusa Studios, Hyakki Castle […]

Daggerfall for Unity: Now with a beginning, middle & end
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2017, 2:00 pm
My earliest memories of The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall were of fear and excitement at the boundless possibilities of a true fantasy sandbox. Of amazement at the most comprehensive character creation screen I’d ever seen, and of deep annoyance when I managed to fall through the floor and into an endless void in the first […]

New Twitch tools help you become a pro streamer
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2017, 12:31 pm

Many Twitch streamers dream of turning pro, but getting there is a fuzzy process. How do you know you've 'made it' and can apply to become an affiliate or partner? And how do you make a big deal out of staple events like channel raids and new viewers without using special tools? Twitch just answered both of those questions. It's rolling out tools that not only track your progress toward getting paid, but streamline some of the tasks that previously required chat bots or outside streaming software.

Black Panther, Monster Hunter & Sigma hit Marvel vs Capcom Infinite
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2017, 10:00 am
Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is a maddening game. At heart, it’s a solid addition to the classic Capcom tag-team fighting series. A festival of explosions, colours, superheroic excess and Capcom’s forgotten characters dusted off for a cameo. Unfortunately, it’s also a mess of questionable design decisions and bizarre corner-cutting, letting down an otherwise excellent core […]

Hollow Knight’s second free expansion out next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2017, 8:00 am
One of my greatest gaming regrets of this year is getting about halfway through Team Cherry’s excellent metroidvania Hollow Knight, then getting sidetracked by a pile of work. In order to get properly back up to speed, I reckon that I’ll have to start fresh, although with the rate at which they’re pumping out free […]

Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

Welcome to the weekend. We'll recap this week's news highlights, plus big stories from Friday like Project Loon-distributed internet going live in Puerto Rico.

What are we all playing this weekend?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2017, 5:00 am
Saturday night’s alright for fighting, I’m told, and to be honest I would be fascinated to see Elton John fighting. I bet he’s way scrappier than you might expect. What are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on.

Parent ’em up Think of the Children released
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2017, 4:00 am
Children are idiots. Left to their own devices, they’ll lick plug sockets, crawl into roads, chug Mr Muscle, charge into the ocean, and generally do themselves harm. Idiots! I know better than to do any of those. Unbelievable. They can’t even drive. But the newly-released Think of the Children will task us with protecting those […]
