Vive Cosmos gets a modular face lift ahead of specs reveal next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 June 2019, 5:55 am
When HTC first unveiled their flash new Vive Cosmos headset back in January, we were presented with a smooth, baby-faced design that had a bright blue sheen and glow-in-the-dark controllers. Now, however, it would appear the Vive Cosmos has entered the pock-marked teenage phase of its run up to release, as HTC posted a new […]

NBA 2K19 showing (sort of) unskippable ads on loading screens
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 June 2019, 6:25 am
I’m no basketman. I personally keep several full-length courts away from sport ’em ups, but here I am covering NBA 2K19. That means there is at least one way in which the decision to start showing ads on loading screens in a £40/$60 game has been a success. It is the only one.

Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

Hey, there! Bill Gates regrets that he didn't beat Android in mobile, we give our mixed verdict on the new Harry Potter mobile game and review Apple's new iPad OS.

Have You Played… Mount and Blade: Warband?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 June 2019, 2:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The Elder Scrolls games delight zero-to-hero fantasists by introducing you as a prisoner in every installment. Shackled on a ship, locked away in a keep, transported to the block on a prisoner’s cart. It’s a nice […]

New York City is the first new 'Hitman 2' location
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 10:01 pm

Hitman 2 has had the same locations since launch -- you could take on new targets, of course, but the missions always had to take place in the same environments. You'll have some variety very shortly, though. IO is giving Expansion Pass holders "The Bank," a new sandbox location set in New York City. The core mission has you taking out the cutthroat banker Athena Savalas, and will unsurprisingly involve slipping through tight security. You'll also have access to the more flexible Contracts Mode from the outset.

Hitman 2 sends Agent 47 to do his banking in tomorrow's DLC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 5:08 pm
When Ian Hitman isn’t hitting men, he’s apparently knitting his own cold-weather ensemble. At least, that’s what he says in the trailer for the New York bank mission DLC coming to Hitman 2 tomorrow. I see no reason not to believe him, as he’s very candid for a man of mystery and murder. The first […]

And All Would Cry Beware is a brilliant name for a metroid'y FPS
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 6:25 pm
Released today, And All Would Cry Beware fits in nicely alongside Renegade Sector Games’s other stuff by looking like a portal to a parallel timeline where the Sega Saturn reigns supreme. Described by solo dev Alec Stamos as “a fast-paced 90s-style shooter with a Metroidvania Structure”, it’s a chunky exploration platform shooter set on a […]

Totally Reliable Delivery Service wobbles awkwardly into open beta
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 2:46 pm
The humble fetch quest – mindless fodder for an MMORPG hero, but a terrifying ordeal for the wobbly balloon people of Totally Reliable Delivery Service. While playable solo or in split-screen for up to four, We’re Five Games want to test the networking for their flailing comedy deliver ’em up. That’s good for us, as […]

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II's Chaos expansion brings spiky naked dudes to space
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 12:36 pm
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II, a slightly flabby spaceship smashing strategy than I nonetheless had a great time with, gets a big dose of daemonic evil today in the form of a new campaign featuring everyone’s favourite spiky chaps. No, not hedgehogs you silly goose! Chaos! Them with the skin peeling and possession and giant psychic […]

Blazing Chrome gets more Contra than Contra (with ninjas) on July 11th
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 1:15 pm
Contra is back next month on July 11th – not in name, but undeniably in spirit. Blazing Chrome by Joymasher is exactly my kind of run-and-gun platformer. Loud, fast, and packed with mean-looking robots and weird biomechanical monsters with far too many eyes and teeth. Today, along with announcing the release date, they put out […]

HyperX Alloy Core RGB review: A great entry-level membrane gaming keyboard
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 1:30 pm
When it comes to finding the world’s best gaming keyboard, the age-old wisdom of the internet hivemind will often say, ‘Mechanical or bust, mate.’ Heeding such advice, however, would be to ignore the many great (and not to mention considerably cheaper) membrane gaming keyboards out there at the moment, such as our current best membrane […]

Wartime MER Finally Sees Delve Eclipsed
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 2:15 pm
It is time for another EVE Online Monthly Economic Report, as CCP released the May edition last week. Going with my desire to give these posts a theme I am happy enough to have had one served up to me, which is the war in the north.  Back in mid-May the

A weekend with 'Harry Potter: Wizards Unite'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 1:28 pm

Mat Smith and Dan Cooper grew up in the UK at the right age to witness the birth of Pottermania. The Harry Potter novels are firmly encoded in their very British psyches, and both are fans of augmented reality, GPS-connected mobile games. So it made plenty of sense that they spend a weekend playing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. One of them is a convert; the other, a hater, so let's watch them hash this out -- politely, of course.

Super Pig X only reveals the level once you've already died horribly
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 11:37 am
Sos Sosowski, of McPixel, Stomp it Up, and Mosh Pit Simulator infamy, has now set his sights back towards the under-serviced ‘doing violence to farm animals’ genre with Super Pig X, a follow up to the 2012 Flash game Super Pig. It’s a brutal, Super Meatboy lookin’ platformer where you guide a pig around pitch […]

Fortnite Battle Royale unvaults old guns and modes for a fortnight in the sun
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 12:06 pm
Epic Games are on holiday for the next two weeks, but before they left for some much-needed R&R (especially after all that crunch), they lined up a summer event for Fortnite Battle Royale. The 14 Days Of Summer event is live now and runs until the devs return on July 8th. Every day, they’ll be […]

Modder Superior: The deck of many Slay The Spire things
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 12:15 pm
Every other Monday, Dominic gives you a reason to dust off one of your old games and dive into its mods with Modder Superior. While I can’t claim to have sunk hundreds of hours into it like Alec, I’ve still lost entire evenings to Slay The Spire‘s deck-building. If you’re one of those people who […]

Jason! Jason! Jason! Jason is now on PC with Heavy Rain
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 12:33 pm
Quantic Dream today bring to PC perhaps the best of David Cage’s PlayStation-exclusive QTE storysprawls, Heavy Rain. I’m damning with faint praise there, but the murder mystery told through the perspectives of four characters is an interesting one at times. Also, it’s hilarious to repeatedly fail QTEs to shake a carton of orange juice then […]

News From EVE North
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 11:05 am
Before I leave Toronto, I thought I would mention some of the news generated from EVE North. I probably will miss some things, or not get some of the details exactly correct, as I am working off my notes and not the VOD of the streams.First, the CSM 14

The big new feature of Apex Legends’ Legendary Hunt event was the release of the Elite Queue – the second mode to be added to Apex, and the first to give us a taste of ranked play. In Elite Queue, you have to consistently prove yourself against lobbies of ever-increasing skill; and changes to the […]

So Mordhau has a Battle Royale mode, because of course it does. I’ve only recently come round to trying it out, because the servers (at least in Europe) were always pretty janky. But in the last few weeks I’ve been playing it rather religiously, and y’know what? If you haven’t given BR as much thought […]

Steam Linux likely to not support future versions of Ubuntu
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 9:38 am
Steam’s Linux version will not support future versions of popular and newbie-friendly distribution Ubuntu, Valve have said. The news came after Ubuntu’s makers said they’d drop 32-bit as of the next big release in October, which sounded like it would leave the great many 32-bit Steam games unplayable. Valve said they were now planning to […]

Wot I Think: They Are Billions

Developer: Numantian Games Publisher: Numantian GamesRelease: Out now On: Windows From: Steam, Humble, Official Site Price: £24/$30/€25 Occasionally, when I pause They Are Billions and zoom out on my tightly packed, grid-based steampunk settlement, I think about how the tiny families in the centre could have just as easily lived their entire lives without ever […]

Steam Charts: Meaningful Effluence Edition
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2019, 6:35 am
Hello friendly people! Welcome to the always-lovely, always-cheerful soft-play-of-fun-and-hyphens that is Steam Charts! Today we’re going to laugh together, learn together, and maybe, just maybe, if we’re lucky, laugh and learn a little. Please, pull up a trouser, take a seat (take as many seats as you need – we have too many seats), and […]
