The Wind becomes a promo game from the maker of Faith
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 7:12 pm
Talk about promo games normally make me think of high profile stuff like Carmen Sandiego invading Google Earth, so I’ve got to tip a weather-beaten stetson to IFC films for going low-fi with The Wind. They’ve tapped Airdorf, solo dev behind the Faith series of bible-quoting exorcise ’em ups to produce a short browser horror […]

We. The Revolution faces the court of public opinion today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 4:06 pm
French revolutionary judge sim We. The Revolution (a clunky capitalisation I shall not use often, sorry devs Polyslash) is out now, sneaking up on me quiet as a guillotine blade. It’s vaguely similar to Papers, Please, in that it’s a game about being a political cog in a complex machine. Less similarly, this is about being […]

Roccat Kone Pure Owl-Eye review: Small yet mighty
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 2:00 pm
Roccat may be about to be subsumed into the peripherals giant that is Turtle Beach, but for the time being their own gaming accessories are still very much alive and well, including their Kone Pure Owl-Eye gaming mouse, seen here in its recently refreshed white edition. I must say, this little tiddler is quite the […]

The real star of Battlefield V’s battle royale is a giant, roaming bonfire
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 2:18 pm
DICE appeared to drop the ball when they didn’t call Battlefield V‘s upcoming battle royale offering ‘Battlefield Royale’. They called it Firestorm instead, which sounds like a terrible Steven Seagal film you’d buy for 99p at a petrol station. Having now played the mode, due as a free update next Monday, I can see why […]

Life Is Strange 2 continues in May, ends in December
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 2:25 pm
Square Enix have kindly given way-advance notice of three dates you’ll want to stock up on tissues for, announcing launch dates for the remaining three episodes of Life Is Strange 2. I don’t have foreknowledge of what will happen to kiddywinkles on the lam with superpowers but, y’know, they are kiddywinkles on the lam – […]

The Division 2 PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 2:30 pm
The Division 2 is a “rock solid looty-shooty” according to our Brendan, and having now spent a fair amount of time playing it myself, I’d say I wholeheartedly agree. I’ve had a lot of fun swanning around Washington DC’s sunny wildlife haven, and I much prefer it to the snowy, flaming bin-lined streets of the […]

Oxenfree and Tacoma are free today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 2:44 pm
Not every problem in games needs to be solved by shooting, stabbing or going very fast. Sometimes you just need to stop, listen and talk things over, like in Oxenfree and Tacoma, two lovely story-driven games that you can snag free right now and keep forever. Contemporary teen ghost story Oxenfree by Night School is […]

Podcast: What we think of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (so far)
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 3:00 pm
 Slicey slicey, reader. Slice up and smell the coffee. Time to leave some baddies in your slice. Whoa, sorry, I’m getting the word “slice” mixed up with the word “wake” again. This is what happens when you play too much Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the new demi-Souls from those virtuasadists at From Software. It’s […]

Monster Hunter: World adding HD texture pack on April 4th
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 12:54 pm
Capcom are laying a common grumble about Monster Hunter: World on PC to rest in a couple weeks, with the release of an optional HD texture pack. While the PC version of the game is the smoothest, nicest-looking way to play the enormous boss rush, eagle-eyed folks noticed that many textures in the PC release […]

The Division 2 best builds – One Shot PVP build, LMG PVE build
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 11:39 am
So you’re now into the World Tiers in The Division 2. What’s most likely is that you’re now in a position to mix and match your gear into optimal builds. Not much is known about the best builds in The Division 2, given that the game has only been out for a short time. However, […]

By popular demand, more Demi Lovato on RPS
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 11:49 am
“I just stumbled upon your jam-packed review page about Demi Lovato,” began a letter that arrived in the RPS treehouse this morning. We were puzzled. Do we have any page about Demi Lovato, let alone a jam-packed review page? We (by which I mean I) have mentioned the singer a few times but… oh! I […]

Civilization VI explains what it’s tracking about you and why
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 10:23 am
2K Games have taken the curious and welcome step of explaining what data Civilization VI collects about you, your computer, and your play – and why. It’s fairly common for games from big publishers to report back, but rare for publishers to say what it’s doing and why. The license we have to agree to […]

King’s Canyon, the Apex Legends map upon which we all drop time and time again each match, is filled with a remarkable array of cliffs, loot-filled towns and hidden areas. Despite its small size, there’s an awful lot to learn about this map and its locations, so we’ve put together this Apex Legends map and […]

Apex Legends lets you carve a three-part multicoloured path through the sky at the beginning of each match with its innovative landing system. From the trails each team leaves in their wake to the addition of a team Jumpmaster to guide the group down together, there’s a lot to like, but a whole lot more […]

When it comes to dealing death in Apex Legends, your guns are only as good as the attachments you add to them. Like PUBG there are a great many different attachments to be found each match, and like Fortnite what you find is broken down into different colours and quality levels. It can be a […]

Apex Legends guns/weapons [Season 1] – best guns, weapon stats, weapon tier list
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 8:25 am
Each new match in Apex Legends fills up its map with a massive variety of guns and attachments to choose from. With 20 guns currently on offer (soon to be more!), each with their own unique stats, spray patterns, quirks, and attachments, there’s a lot to learn – hence our Apex Legends guns/weapons guide, which […]

Apex Legends Mirage guide [Season 1] – abilities, hitbox, Mirage tips and tricks
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 9:06 am
Mirage, the trickster of Apex Legends, has his issues when compared to popular characters such as Wraith and Bangalore. But when things go right for you, and you pull off that perfect bamboozle or distraction… Man, it feels great. What’s more, there’s a fair amount more utility to Mirage’s abilities than you might think. Our […]

Pathfinder doesn’t exactly look mobile, but he can give even the new speedy Octane a run for his money as the fastest Apex Legends character. Pathfinder’s abilities are extremely momentum-focused, and reward players that look for unexpected angles and flanks during fights. As possibly the Legend with the highest skill ceiling in the game, it’s […]

Gibraltar is to the Apex Legends characters what the Mozambique is to its weapons roster; the subject of constant ridicule. This is thanks to his enormous hitbox compared to, say, the tiny frames of Wraith or Lifeline. But in fact, his abilities are top-notch if you can use them correctly, and a good Gibraltar can […]

Apex Legends Wraith guide [Season 1] – abilities, hitbox, Wraith tips and tricks
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 9:10 am
It’s easy to see why Wraith is considered by many to be the strongest all-round character in Apex Legends. A high skill ceiling with abilities that can be used to great effect both offensively and defensively; and a hitbox so small you may need a microscope to see it, let alone hit it. Our Apex […]

Apex Legends Lifeline guide [Season 1] – abilities, hitbox, Lifeline tips and tricks
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 9:12 am
Lifeline may be the healer of the Apex Legends characters roster, but she has absolutely no trouble dishing out as much damage to her foes as anyone. There are some excellent reasons to play as Lifeline beyond offering a helping hand to your teammates, and our Apex Legends Lifeline guide is the perfect place to […]

Bloodhound is a very interesting Apex Legends character to play as. With abilities revolving around tracking enemies and positional awareness, they are a high-skill-ceiling Legend and one of the most commonly played characters at the highest skill levels. Our Apex Legends Bloodhound guide will walk you through Bloodhound’s colourful (or colourless…) array of abilities, as […]

Apex Legends Caustic guide [Season 1] – abilities, hitbox, Caustic tips and tricks
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 9:14 am
Caustic, despite his premium status as one of just three characters in Apex Legends who must be unlocked through Legend Tokens or Apex Coins, is one of the least popular Legends in the game thanks to his bulky hitbox. But despite this, a good Caustic can be diabolical to deal with, throwing down swathes of […]

Despite her recent nerf with the start of Season 1, Bangalore is right up there with Wraith at the top of most players’ Apex Legends character tier lists. She is highly mobile, easy to learn, difficult to deal with, and comes equipped with a variety of tools to help her team gain the upper hand […]

When there’s no more room in hell, a S.W.I.N.E. remaster will walk the earth
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 6:06 am
I’ve absolutely nothing against 2001 war-pigs vs battle-bunnies strategy game S.W.I.N.E., but by the point we’re making HD versions of fair-to-middling RTSes about New Porkshire invading Carrotland, we’ve surely reached Peak Remake. Here we are, though, scooping deeper and deeper into the barrel: S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster is out this spring, prettier and modernised for our […]
