Cuteness overwhelming in Ooblets trailer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 5:41 pm
Every now and then, in this vast hall of GIFs we call the internet, I see the mini-monsters and dancing townsfolk of Ooblets [official site] and it makes me feel good about life. It’s an as-yet-unreleased game of farming, raising creatures, and living among the townsfolk of ‘Hubton’. “It’s sort of like Harvest Moon meets […]


Gunpoint meets Mavis Beacon in Rogue Process
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 3:59 pm
Lop the typing gland off Mavis Beacon, cut a graft slit into Gunpoint, then insert the typing into the window-smashing platform-o-hacking stem and seal the graft with wax, and- dear god, what have you done? Did you think that would work? How do you even think games are made? You big silly. You leave the […]


Stellaris’ New Horizons mod is the best Star Trek game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 4:00 pm
Everything was in place for the Romulan invasion of the United Federation of Planets. Warbirds screeched out of the shipyards of Romulus and Remus on a direct course for the closest Federation worlds, those belonging to the chilly Andorians. The real goal, of course, was neighbouring Vulcan. This was a symbolic war. As my jade […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 1:47 pm
Grab your pals and plug in extra controllers to basketball and brawl in Draymond Green’s Shut Up And Slam Jam Karate Basketball [Itch page], out now. It’s a 2v2 arcade basketball game where, due to a mix-up, a karate demonstration and a charity basketball match are to take place on the same court at the […]


What point and click adventures could learn from hidden object games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 2:00 pm
This week I’ve been tinkering with a preview build of Thimbleweed Park which is the point and click murder mystery from Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick (them off Maniac Mansion). I used to love playing point and click games when I was little – my siblings and I would play them together over weeks and […]


A reminder for all you would-be special forces and military tacticians, the Ghost Recon: Wildlands open beta starts tomorrow


forma.8 has adorable animations and lovely palettes
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 12:00 pm
I don’t know if you remember but a while ago I posted about the lovely little animation touches of Inside. forma.8 [official site] is another game which invites that treatment. It’s a beautiful Metroidvania prospect which uses that sort of flat colour layering that you find in minimalist posters and similar (think WPA posters and […]


Narita Boy invokes the retro art of Superbrothers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 12:42 pm
Here’s something to coo at if you like your art done in thousands of tiny squares. Narita Boy [official site] is a game-in-progress where the hero flies a floppy disk as a hoverboard and rides a horse made out of old computers while slashing at red foes with a techno sword. He’s stuck inside the […]


Penny-pinching PlayStation players, your patience is about to pay off


How Morrowindy is Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 10:00 am
I will admit to a certain wateriness in my eyes when I heard the music. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind was and is, I believe, almost more a state of mind than it is a roleplaying game. A strange and desolate place, built upon a foundation of distrust, it is almost aggressively lonely. As an […]


Dragon Quest Heroes II will slime PC too
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 10:29 am
Square Enix have announced a PC release for hack ‘n’ slash action-RPG Dragon Quest Heroes II [official site], which previously they’d only confirmed for PlayThings. It’s a spin-off from Dragon Quest, taking that RPG’s setting into hack ‘n’ slash action made by Dynasty Warriors developers Omega Force. I believe Dragon Quest Heroes is a bit […]


Have You Played… Hitman?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. When it was announced that the new Hitman would be released one level at a time, the response was confusion or worry. Now that its first season is complete however, we know that […]

Dungeons 3 keeps on keepin’ on
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 7:49 am
Realmforge are diving back into the Dungeon Keeper-ish world of Dungeons, announcing Dungeons 3 [Steam page] for autumn. It’s a real-time strategy game about an evil overlord building a dungeon to raise, train, and protect dastardly minions then sending ’em out to raid and ravage the shiny happy overworld – Dungeon Keeper meets Warcraft. Our […]

Berserk and the Band of the Hawk hacks ‘n’ slashes out
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 7:04 am
The year is 2037, and Parliament Warriors has just hit Steam. Having turned all known Japanese history and fiction into Warriors games, Koei Tecmo have cast a wider gaze. Following the success of a Warriors game recreating the historic 2023 by-election which started Zayn Malik’s rise to power, Koei are hopeful that the supergroup of […]

Sybaris Continues

While I’m disappointed that Wurm Unlimited won’t be getting everything in the next large update that Wurm Online received (500 recipes mainly) that doesn’t stop me from being excited about the changes coming. It...


Overwatch teases something new via robo-prodigy, Efi
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 5:35 am
Looks like Blizzard are teasing something to do with a new character for Overwatch [official site]. They’ve put up an “interview” with 11-year-old robotic engineering prodigy, Efi Oladele, which is clearly teasing something on the robotics/AI front. To be honest, as long as I never have to pick through a Sombra-style interminable ARG reveal event […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 February 2017, 5:51 am
In case you’d forgotten, Total Warhammer [official site] will add an extra playable faction to the Grand Campaign in a free update next week – Bretonnia. While they are already in Total Warhammer, this is their full and grand arrival. But what are these fantasy Frenchmen into? Fairytale castles, chivalry, Arthurian legend, and hippogryphs, going […]
