Best PC gaming deals of the week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2017, 6:48 am
Somehow yet another week has passed us by and the endless march of time proceeds ever forward. I don’t know about you but this week, I spent an exorbitant amount of time playing Shadow of Wardor, in which death is such a trivial thing it’s almost bringing on an existential crisis. I did meet a […]

Valve’s Steam Link costs pennies in a bundle with Icey
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2017, 7:00 am
I can only assume that Valve’s Steam Link box (which lets you play your PC stuff streamed to your TV in another room) hasn’t been flying off the shelves, given the discount it’s available for today. Whether it’s just to clear shelf-space or increase visibility, right now you can it’s only 80p plus postage as […]

Opus Magnum’s alchemy machines are gorgeous
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2017, 7:10 am
I am raising my head from the alchemy desk to tell you: Opus Magnum is out now and it is good. It’s the new puzzle game from Zachtronics which crept up on us this week. This studio’s puzzlers have a definite flavour to them. They’re about fiddling with machines, hacking together a solution out of […]

The Flare Path: Hillocks and Pillocks
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2017, 8:00 am
Subtle slope textures and a lack of unit bases and battle replays make Field of Glory II a tricky wargame to After Action Report. I can’t promise that today’s aggro account will be easy to follow, but I’ll be mortified if it baffles and bores. The fabulous FoGII is to tedium what Domestos, the Greek […]

Gnog’s pretty puzzleheads opening up in November
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2017, 8:31 am
The pretty puzzleheads of Gnog will finally come to PC some time in November. Ko_op’s Gnog traps us inside giant monstrous heads, where I suppose our objective is to escape but that seems a lot less fun than messing about. Like Windosill and games by Vectorpark, solving puzzles feels secondary to poking around, fiddling with […]

The Walking Dead's Morgan shoots down that Old Man Rick theory. Sorry
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2017, 7:27 am
The Walking Dead season 8 is nearly upon us! This weekend we'll finally return to the land of Rick, Negan, and the Walkers and one of the biggest questions we're hoping will be answered is about that shot of Rick from the trailer

Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2017, 7:05 am

As eSports has grown into the arena-filling behemoth it is today, traditional sports has been clamouring for a stake. Talent has been snapped up, tournaments established, and multi-million dollar investments made. The trend looks set to continue with news that two of the NBA's biggest rivals are jumping on the competitive gaming bandwagon.

Nintendo Switch now supports USB headphones
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2017, 8:31 am

Turns out Nintendo rolled out another pretty useful feature with Switch OS version 4.0.0 but curiously kept it a secret. Some Reddit users have discovered that the update comes with support for USB devices, even wireless USB headsets like Sony's Gold Wireless headset for PlayStation and PC. You simply have to plug the device's dongle into the Switch dock, and you'll notice a new volume slider for it. The feature supports a variety of other USB headphones, so you're not limited to the PS Gold. However, it only works when the Switch is docked.

Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2017, 5:19 am
You’d be forgiven for giving up the ghost with The Walking Dead season 8 but, hey, wait, come back! The show is back on track this time

‘Pokemon Go’ hopes new monsters will get you outside this fall
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2017, 8:06 pm

While Pokémon Go may have lost some of its shine due to a number of problems like poorly run public events and a divisive invitation-only special battle system, the mobile game still has a decent fanbase. The developers have been adding new live events and contests to maintain interest, like an AR photography contest, legendary monsters, and Adventure Week. It's Halloween time, though, and Pokémon Go might entice you back into the game with its new seasonal additions. You'll see more Ghost-type Pokémon in the wild, especially those from the Hoenn region found in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald like Sableye and Banette.

Overgrowth doesn’t feel ready to leave Early Access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 October 2017, 4:00 pm
The most satisfying moments in Overgrowth [official site] take place in mid-air. Rabbits are typically good at jumping, but they’ve got nothing on their anthropomorphic cousin, Turner, the martial arts master and hero of this critter-bashing romp. His leaping ability borders on the power of flight. During those seconds, suspended in the skies above the […]
