The Sunday Papers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 March 2018, 7:03 am
Sundays are for feverish last minute packing, and attempts to justify including Cosmic Encounter in your luggage. On Kotaku, Patrick Redford reviewed the climbing walls in an Overwatch map. It’s a project that’s as daft as it is entertaining, and gave me flashbacks to a climbing centre trip where my own fragile little game journalist […]

St. Patrick’s Day is a good excuse for digital drinking
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 March 2018, 10:06 pm
It’s St. Patrick’s Day over here in America. Like a gigantic dummy, I started a weekend job on St. Patrick’s Day instead of making a mess of myself hooliganing across my neighborhood like normal. This is good for the folks in my neighborhood but unpleasant for me, so time to live vicariously through some of […]

Devil May Cry HD gets the PC collection it deserves, kinda
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 March 2018, 2:51 pm
Devil May Cry is finally on PC in an HD collection that brings together the first three games into a magical hack-and-slash adventure that allows the player to take some revenge on some utterly bizarre demons. These three Playstation 2 originals first got the HD treatment in a bundle back in 2012, so sure, 2018 […]

Q.U.B.E. 2 looks like a G.O.O.D. 1
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 March 2018, 3:18 pm
I may be addicted to this kind of nonsense and I want to finish this article so I can get to the serious business of playing this game. If you played Q.U.B.E. then you probably have some expectations set for what kind of brain-scratching world altering goodness that a sequel can bring. But the entire […]

People love farming games for some reason; Pure Farming 2018 is another one
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 March 2018, 12:39 pm
Pure Farming 2018 is out now. That’s…. that’s what we have to say. Farming Sim games now come from several competitive developers but also that competition doesn’t seem to make the genre better. Or maybe it does? Honestly, my ability to weigh in on the style of game is both too much and too little […]

Powerdrill into my heart by supporting these murder games to help a Good Pupper
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 March 2018, 10:42 am
Here’s a mega-bummer. The video game creators behind a small indie horror game called FAITH have gone through a hard time. They made a very MS-DOS based spooky scare game that would be a real fun experience for you to engage with right now, and they bundled it with some other retro horror titles. Unfortunately, […]

Welcome Back, GameFront
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 March 2018, 10:13 am
GameFront (also known as FileFront and originally FileLeech) was shut down nearly two years ago, and in the process, nearly 20 years of history was lost. The site, which offered demos and mods for gamesfolk all over the world, went down in 2016 after being an internet mainstay. Guess who is back?

Free games of the week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 March 2018, 8:00 am
Remember in school when your teacher would have you play those typing games, just to learn how to use a keyboard? Imagine if instead of your teacher it was filmmaker David Lynch teaching you everything you need to know about typing. Maybe then you would have paid more attention! You can find out if that’s […]

What are we all playing this weekend?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 March 2018, 6:00 am
Several of us have flown from the RPS treehouse this weekend like riders on the storm, headed for Americky and the Game Developers Conference. Adam, Brendan, and John will be in San Francisco playing the part of gumshoes, wrapped in trenchcoats, lurking in bars, smoking on street corners, glugging whiskey in the rain, and getting […]

Sonic Mania runs an encore lap with friends this summer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 5:42 pm
I’m still in a state of mild disbelief that Sonic Mania even exists. A glorified fan-game by some of the best and brightest creators in a scene that’s often looked down on and frequently sneered at. Backed fully by Sega, it recaptured the spirit of what made that weird blue hedgehog a cultural icon through […]

Twitch Prime now includes a monthly bundle of games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 6:16 pm
Like it or not, subscription services are becoming a greater part of the gaming sphere with each passing month. Humble Monthly, Origin Access, the XBox game pass (which now includes PC games) among others. Many of us already have a subscription to Amazon Prime, which brings with it a slew of perks and giveaways on […]

Fortnite Battle Royale tossing remote explosives around
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 3:33 pm
Remote explosives are always video game weapons I wish I were devious or patient enough to use properly. I’m like a child who can’t help but ruin a surprise birthday party by shouting “SURPRISE” the second they hear keys in the lock. But you know what, a little premature explosion in a battle royale game […]

Sail a ship to world’s end and beyond in Far: Lone Sails
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 4:28 pm
There may be no new ideas in games, but if you mash up enough concepts, you’ll get something close enough to unique. Take Far: Lone Sails for example, a post-apocalyptic steampunk sailing puzzle-platform simulation adventure. Bet you never thought you’d be playing one of those, or for it to look quite so lovely. The first […]

Roccat Khan Aimo review: Better for bass lovers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 5:00 pm
The Khan Aimo is the final piece of Roccat’s smart RGB peripheral puzzle – or at least it is so far, anyway. Like their Horde Aimo keyboard and Kone Aimo mouse before it, the Khan Aimo uses Roccat’s intelligent RGB system to create a synchronised light show that adapts to the way you work and […]

Watch The Sinking City devs ponder how to demonstrate the Lovecraftian investigation
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 2:36 pm
I’m glad to see more of The Sinking City, the Lovecraft-inspired investigative horror game being made by Sherlock Holmes studio Frogwares. Wandering and boating around a half-flooded city to poke into mysteries of terrible and unknowable beings sounds great to me. I’ve not heard much from it in a while but, with The Sinking City […]

Who needs 3D? boils down Battle Royale
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 2:56 pm
It’s sometimes easy to forget that not everyone has a PC designed for playing games, and (until recently) many of the big Battle Royale shooters have required pretty beefy hardware in order to get the most out of them. Enter, distilling the absurdly popular genre down to its purest elements to present them in […]

Outer Wilds returns from the void with a new trailer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 12:48 pm
Do you remember Outer Wilds? If you’ve forgotten, that’s understandable – the last time we saw anything concrete about this miniature-scale game of space exploration in a solar system mere minutes from destruction, it was three full years ago. Between now and then, all we’ve seen was a brief confirmation that the game (which first […]

We spoke to Shiro Games about the future of Northgard
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 1:00 pm
Northgard is a splendid RTS about rearing a clan of vikings in a punishing climate that makes every decision matter. But you’ve read my review, and you already know all that. Northgard is a fantastic game in the present, but what does its future hold? I spoke to CEO of Shiro Games and Northgard dev […]

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 launching reworked loot boxes next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 1:22 pm
Four months after turning off microtransactions in Star Wars: Battlefront II following the big stupid loot box mess, EA are about ready to launch a revamp of the game’s progression system and microtransaction monetisation. The good news: nothing that actually affects the action will be purchasable with real money. The so-so news: yes it still […]

Oh, Canada! Dota 2 International moves venue
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 11:05 am
In the period of my life where free time basically equated to Dota time, I’d have loved nothing more than to go the International – especially if it was the one where my friends managed to get themselves trapped in a lift with Blitz. No doubt to avoid a repeat of that incident, Valve are […]

Have You Played… The Hidden?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 11:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The Hidden is crying out for a standalone revival. Released just over ten years ago, it was an asymmetrical Half-Life 2 multiplayer mod that turned a squad of machinegun-wielding military grunts into fragile prey for one […]

Vermintide 2 mod tools expected in late April
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 8:54 am
I’ve barely scratched Warhammer: Vermintide 2 yet myself but, if you’re hacking through fiendish hordes at an alarming pace and are starting to wonder when the planned mod support might arrive: late April is the current plan. That’s what developers Fatshark told cheery RPS fan zine PC Gamer, in a chat which also touched on […]

Best PC gaming deals of the week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 8:58 am
Welcome back, weary travellers, to another batch of the week’s absolute best PC gaming deals, which this week also includes a few bits of other ‘this is rather nice’ offers. There’s even a Raspberry Pi deal in there somewhere, for all of you who might want to do more than just slap an Amiga emulator […]

The Flare Path: Battle-Scarred
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 March 2018, 9:00 am
Check Your Six! vs Panzer Strategy. In the ‘Battle of the Wargames Wot Have Hit Steam in the Past Week and Feature Hexagons and WW2 and Suchlike’ there can be only one, two, or zero winners. If you’re happy to adopt the role of Reader for the next five minutes, I’ll don the mantle of […]
