Have You Played… Mysterium?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 November 2018, 2:00 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The people who made Mysterium want you to play it wrong. That’s not a problem with the original board game, as long as you don’t play with people who insist on adhering to the designer’s vision […]

Druidstone is a tactical RPG from ex-Grimrock folk due early 2019
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2018, 6:30 pm
Blimey, there’s lots of RPGs with turn-based tactical combat around lately, and Druidstone: The Secret Of The Menhir Forest (from Ctrl Alt Ninja, some of the folks behind Legend Of Grimrock) looks especially interesting. It’s a story driven, party-scale isometric RPG with a focus on grid based combat, minus the statistical bloat common in the genre. […]

Co-op alien blaster Earthfall is free for the weekend and cheap to keep
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2018, 5:09 pm
Let’s not beat around the bush – Earthfall is Left 4 Dead but with aliens instead of zombies. It’s also free to try for the weekend, and very cheap if you want to keep it. Launched in July, Holospark’s co-op FPS never quite caught on, despite looking like a perfectly decent way to spend a […]

Killer7 is out now on PC and as strange as ever
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2018, 3:11 pm
Killer7 is out now on PC, and one of the weirder things you can play this week. It’s a hallucinatory adventure-slash-first-person shooter hybrid about seven assassins (who may actually be one person) hunting ‘terrorists’ that are apparently howling, self-destructing demons. It’s bizarre, profane, allegorical, drenched in blood and a little bit punk. Originally launched in 2005 […]

New Caldari – Ishukone and Hyasyoda have submitted findings from a year-long joint investigation into alleged smuggling by Nugoeihuvi and CBD to the Caldari Business Tribunal, calling on the Caldari intercorporate court to open a case that may lead to penalties for the accused megacorps.

Witness testimony, shipping manifests, and whistle-blowers support claims that the NOH and CBD megacorporations used extralegal means of moving goods and peoples across the border during the YC119 partial closure, avoiding restrictions which hindered other megacorporations, their subsidiaries and interstellar trading partners. The evidence largely hinges on records acquired from Amaguq Freight Solutions, a Syndicate-registered import-export company, which the Ishukone-Hysayoda report alleges served as a front for the smuggling operation.

The listed address for Amaguq Freight Solutions, on the Intaki Syndicate station orbiting MXYS-8 IV M1, is actually an Intaki takeout restaurant. Independent reporters were able to confirm the allegation of a front address, noting the restaurant appeared to specialize in deep-fried protein delicacies sold as "long-limb roe tempura".

The report's testimony from whistle-blowers includes claims that the front was a joint operation by Serpentis and Guristas smugglers, allowing them to exploit contacts on both sides of the border. This criminal arrangement, the testimony suggests, worked out so well that the pirate organizations used it to move their own goods independently of their arrangement with NOH and CBD.

The Ishukone-Hyasyoda taskforce's investigators further assert that this channel was how CBD and NOH exchanged luxury goods for high-value, low-volume raw materials directly on Federation markets without paying the significant markups incurred by competitors diverting through the Amarr Empire or using its markets as an alternative.

"I'm sure that when Kaalakiota, Lai Dai, and Sukuuvestaa voted in support of the closure, they had thought all parties would be at an equal disadvantage," said Wiyrkomi Peace Corps representative Uvas Noma, when asked to comment as she attended a security conference on New Caldari Prime. "But it appears that through just this one avenue, NOH and CBD managed to save billions. The Peace Corps is looking at additional evidence we independently gathered, which suggests there are more illegal channels to be uncovered."

Noma noted that signs of the smuggling operations have been spotted on Ishukone, Hyasyoda, and Wiyrkomi stations, and the three megacorps are in talks to merge their investigative efforts. "It's telling that CBD and NOH were two of the main holdouts when it came time to lift the restrictions," she concluded.

Further comment on the allegations was supplied by sources among outlawed organizations. In particular, Guristas pilot Panola 'Punchy' Paatama confirmed the allegations. "Hell yeah we smuggled for CBD and NOH. We smuggle for Catiz and the godlovers too – we smuggle for damn near everyone, cause we don’t discriminate, we got the best rates and the best customer service, and up yours if you think otherwise!"

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2018, 1:27 pm
It was a sad day indeed when AMD’s three free games bundle came to an end at the beginning of November (bye bye, free Assassin’s Creed Odyssey), but the good news is that today marks the start of a brand new, and arguably even better, AMD games bundle to celebrate the launch of their new […]

Tactical dungeon-crawl Warhammmer 40,000: Mechanicus is out now

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, Bulwark Studios’s tactical dungeon crawler based on the Games Workshop mega-universe is out now. It pits the Adeptus Mechanicus (an especially barmy bunch of cyborg engineer-cultists) up against the Necron; what you’d get if you put Warhammer Fantasy’s Egyptian undead and The Terminator in a blender. Systems-wise, it’s a blend of FTL-like […]

With keyboard and mouse support on Xbox, Microsoft closes the gap on PCs
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 November 2018, 12:00 pm

After years of unfulfilled promises and a few weeks of build-up, the Xbox One family finally supports keyboards and mice. Alright, so it's still a feature reserved for members of the beta-esque Xbox Insider Program and few games actually work with the different control scheme, but it's here nevertheless. Keyboards, mice and consoles aren't an abnormal pairing. I remember playing Unreal Tournament on the Dreamcast with keys and clicks, and the PS4 has supported the alternative peripherals for years, even if developers have largely ignored them. It's a slightly bigger deal on Xbox One, though. After all, it technically runs Windows 10, the OS of choice for PC gamers, albeit with the clunky Xbox UI on top. The line between console and computer, then, becomes ever blurrier.

How Aardman made a WWI game look like an oil painting

Most video games set in the First or Second World War shoot for gritty realism. In Battlefield 1, for instance, there's an extraordinary amount of detail in every uniform, firearm and mud-filled trench. It's the visual fidelity, paired with addictive combat, that draws players in.

Fallout 76 introduces Atoms for the first time.

Since there are an awful lot of challenges in the game, some of which have multiple tiers, it can be […]

There’s stealth, parkour and […]
