Valve temporarily stops adding adult games to Steam
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2018, 4:23 am

In recent months, the question of which games should be granted access to Steam -- Valve's online marketplace -- has become an increasingly heated one. After initially warning developers whose games contained adult or violent subject matter to remove explicit themes, Valve settled on a new, watered down content policy that did allow controversial content -- so long as it wasn't illegal. But one visual novel developer claims the moderation isn't over.

Heist adventure series Thief of Thieves begins today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 6:34 pm
Rival Games’s episodic sneak-thief comic adaptation Thief of Thieves has successfully infiltrated stores today, or at least the first volumes of this particular season has. It’s based on Robert Kirkman’s (The Walking Dead) comic of the same name, and our man Alec is currently casing the joint for a full review. Those feeling a little […]

Rainbow Six Siege’s automated bigotry bans upset bigots
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 5:18 pm
We’ve known for a while that Ubisoft have been trying to curb toxicity in Rainbow Six Siege, but their latest phase in their war against awful people brightened up my weekend. The popular tactical FPS now automatically and immediately issues short-term bans for racist and homophobic slurs in text-chat, and the frequently amusing results across social media speak for […]

'FIFA 18' correctly predicted France's World Cup win
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 4:54 pm

EA Sports has a pretty amazing record when it comes to predicting the outcome of major sporting events. The company used it's FIFA 18 game to correctly opine that Germany would win the 2014 World Cup, and has used the long-running Madden franchise to correctly guess the real winner of the Super Bowl nine out of thirteen times. Now EA wants you to know that it also correctly chose France as the winner of this year's World Cup.

Wayward Souls crawls into the dungeons of early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 2:49 pm
Wayward Souls: Curse of Shadow, a story-driven and SNES-inspired action RPG (with procedurally generated dungeons, of course) is out now on PC in early access. An enhanced port of Rocketcat’s 2014 mobile RPG, I’ve been meaning to try it after hearing good things about it – what you’d expect from the developers of the excellent […]

City of Brass gets classy and characterful in a big update
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 3:43 pm
I’ve been meaning to spend more time with offbeat first-person swashbuckling roguelike City of Brass, and today’s update is exactly the excuse I needed to come back to it. While the launch version of the Arabian Nights-inspired smash n’ grab was perhaps a little limited it its scope, today’s “Fortune’s Rivals” update broadens its horizons with two new […]

Reality bleed: VR in the wilds of theatre
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 4:00 pm
A sack is placed over your head. A voice, alarmingly close, barks that you are the next test subject. Your hands are bound and you are led, still hooded, to another room where your attendant tells you, as he straps you into a chair, that you will come to no physical harm. The hood is […]

MER – Pre-War Delve Numbers
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 3:45 pm
CCP has released the monthly economic report for June 2018, and it might turn out to be an interesting report for comparison sake.  June was a month of dull peace in Delve, with ratting and mining and production and commerce rolling along unhindered.

Nathan Fillion is a fitting star for an 'Uncharted' fan film
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 4:25 pm

Fans have been hoping for years that Nathan Fillion would play Uncharted protagonist Nathan Drake in a film adaptation, but now that the long-delayed official movie has refocused to a prequel story, that hope seemed less and less possible. For those stalwarts, here's a consolation prize: The Firefly actor appeared as the games' swarthy protagonist in a 15-minute fan film that does the cinematic adventure franchise justice.

Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter: World are both games near and dear to my heart, and colliding in a major crossover event next month, at least in the case of Final Fantasy XIV. While I’m hopeful that this crossover will accompany the PC release of Monster Hunter: World on August 9th, we’re poking Capcom for […]

Hunt: Showdown whips out crossbows & throwing knives
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 1:09 pm
Sneaky new crossbows and throwing knives have arrived in Hunt: Showdown‘s latest update, for monster-hunters who enjoy having to recover ammo by yanking it out their foe’s face. For me, basically – from Heavy Bullets to Skyrim, I do enjoy having to collect my ammo – and risking running out. Apparently you can even restock […]

How Metal Wolf Chaos is coming to PC after 14 years
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 2:00 pm
“By the end of the first quarter of the 21st century, freedom was dead in America.” This is the opening line of Metal Wolf Chaos. But before the player can decide whether or not such a statement was prophetic back when this bullet-spraying action game came out 14 years ago, the 47th President of the […]

Nerf’s latest laser tag kit takes a cue from FPS games
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 2:00 pm

Nerf guns are a lot of fun. But the arguments over whether someone got hit and picking up all those darts when you're done? Not so much. Laser tag has a huge advantage there. Nerf even made its own laser tag guns a few years ago, and this week it updates the line with a video-game-influenced augmented reality upgrade. Now you can track your stats and target virtual opponents — things that fans of foam-dart-based weapons can only dream about.

The new 'Walking Dead' mobile game won’t topple 'Pokémon Go'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 2:31 pm

I don't like The Walking Dead, or zombie-related content more generally, but I'm a sucker for a location-based mobile game like Pokémon Go and Silent Streets. Next Games' The Walking Dead: Our World uses Google Maps to turn your local area into a hostile, zombified environment, and I just had to give it a try. Sadly, after a couple of hours dipping in and out of the game, I'm not sure I want to spend a lot of time fighting the undead.

MoonQuest is an attractive Terrariabut that just ventured onto early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 8:36 am
How many buts is too many buts? MoonQuest is a swell-looking “procedurally-generated adventure game with roguelike and minecraftian gameplay” that’s screaming to be placed in the Terarribut genre, which is itself a subgenre of the Minecraftbut. Which is fine. When I say MoonQuest reminds me of Terraria but with more wizards and weirdness, that’s high […]

Blizzard boast of player abuse reduction in Overwatch
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 9:14 am
Instances of dillholes jerking up Overwatch multiplayer matches with abusive chat have dropped by around a quarter since Blizzard added player endorsement and ‘looking for group’ systems last month, according to numbers shared by game director Jeff Kaplan. As social engineering in this cyberhell goes, that seems a fair result. Blizzard still haven’t replied to […]

Best gaming SSD 2018: Top SATA and NVMe drives for your PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 8:02 am
Buying an SSD can be a nightmare when there are so many models to choose from, but the good news is that there’s never been a better time to buy one, as prices are down (especially if you’re eyeing up Amazon Prime Day deals right now) and availability is high – which is why we’re here to help […]

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 PC open beta coming in August
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 6:56 am
We’ll get to try the near-future face-shooting of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 in a free multiplayer open beta weekend in August, developers Treyarch have announced. No, this won’t include that new battle royale mode, Blackout. As a casual observer of Cod I am sorry to see the antics of wallrunning and jetpacking removed […]

Amazon Prime Day 2018: Best deals on PC games and hardware
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 7:00 am
The summer deals bonanza you’ve all been waiting for is finally here – it’s Amazon Prime Day. Amazon’s big day o’deals (or rather day and a half o’ deals this year) begins today, and it’s taking place right now in the UK. There is, I’ll admit, quite a lot of trash on sale this year, but there […]

Steam Charts: Moderately Entertaining Edition

Amazon sold pirate copies of Frostpunk and Surviving Mars, among others
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2018, 7:34 am
That big shop on the internet, Amazon, has been selling pirated copies of PC games, some do-gooders have discovered (or rather, some sellers using Amazon as a storefront have been doing so). The dodgy games include icy societal survival game Frostpunk and dusty martian city-builder Surviving Mars, which were being sold for the suspiciously cheapo […]

Northern Springs brings frosty adventure to Fallout 4
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 July 2018, 7:05 pm
Fallout 4 just got a massive new sector for explorin’ and craftin’ and murderin’. As is the new normal for the industry, this stunning new bit of world and its storyline are all thanks to fan labour. A mod called Northern Springs, which is billed as being larger than any of the game’s official expansions, […]
