Batman grapples into Fortnite Battle Royale
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2019, 8:33 am
Battle-royale-slash-ginormous-advertising-platform Fortnite has confirmed its Batman partnership in a blink and you’ll miss it livestream. Luckily, as is the power of online video, you can watch it again at your leisure, including right below. Or you can hop right into the game, where there are doubtless many bats competing to be the last one standing.


What are we all playing this weekend?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2019, 4:00 am
Okay, this is it: the last weekend of summer. Get out there. Make it happen. Feel it. In the long dark months to come I’d be kicking myself if I had let this pass. What are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on!


Afterparty will launch just in time to out-drink the devil on Halloween
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 4:00 pm
Sometimes you read a game synopsis and have to blink and remind yourself it’s not a high-concept metal album, because blimey. Two buds trapped in hell earning their freedom by out-drinking the devil sounds like the sorta thing that’d have some killer riffs. Ah, well. Afterparty still looks bloody incredible. With a release date marked […]


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's open beta fires up in a few hours
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 1:52 pm
Modern Warfare is almost upon us, again. This year’s Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is much more modern than those other Modern Warfares (all three of them) which, in hindsight, aren’t quite so modern anymore. Things are gritty and real this time around, which is both much more modern and far more war than before. […]


Wot I Think: Untitled Goose Game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 12:00 pm
Developer: House House Publisher: Panic Inc Release: September 20th On: Windows From: Epic Games Store Price: £16/$20/€20 What’s the deal with geese? It’s a question I’ve been asking myself for the better part of a decade. Admittedly, it’s a rather odd question to have been mulling over for so many years, but for my whole […]


Best gaming keyboard 2019: Top mechanical and membrane picks
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 12:00 pm
With so many great keyboards to pick from these days, finding the best gaming keyboard for you and your budget can be tricky. First, you’ve got to figure out whether you’d rather save some money and get a cheap membrane-based one, or maybe splash out a bit and get a mechanical one instead. However, even […]


Bags packed, dogs fed, shotguns loaded: strategy road trip Overland sets off
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 12:25 pm
Are road trips even fun? It’s certainly a nice thought, tearing down a sunlit road with your mates, chugging brews in the back and tunes on the CD player. But I can’t think of any I’ve been on that aren’t outright misery, crammed in the back on a family jaunt across the country, parents arguing […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 1:00 pm
All the games ever created in the history of the world seemed to have arrived all at once this week, and your deals herald’s been hard at work trying to find all the best PC gaming deals she can to help ease the aching soul of your soon to be depleted wallet. We’ve got deals […]


You can now play Grand Theft Auto V offline again
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 9:53 am
After Rockstar launched their new wee store client doodad this week, folks who wanted to play Grand Theft Auto V offline on PC were finding themselves unable to. Did Rockstar sneak in a new DRM measure when wedging the new Rockstar Games Launcher into the game’s guts? Naw, they say it was a bug, and […]


Our first impressions of PlanetSide Arena’s chaotic team battle royale
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 10:00 am
Raise the purple flag, comrades. PlanetSide Arena came out yesterday, bringing some royale to PlanetSide 2’s vast battles in a spin-off game of jeeps and jetpacks. Its big thing is that everyone has a quad in their back pocket, but another major draw are the big 12-person team battles. That’s in keeping with the scale […]


Borderlands 3 weapons are absolutely ridiculous in pretty much every way. Blasting far beyond the standard set by the previous games in the series, the game throws gun after gun after gun at you throughout its lengthy campaign, each with a multitude of attributes and effects that can completely change how the gun is used […]


Adventures With Anxiety is free and good
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 10:43 am
Adventures With Anxiety is a free work of interactive fiction by Nicky Case. It’s about Sergeant Jack Magnum, elite leader of the deadly facepunch squad. Or it’s about anxiety, whatever. You play as the anxiety. It’s a little red dog that clings to its human like a raincoat, but detaches when it detects danger it […]


The Foxer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 8:00 am
The 25 pictures in a cluster foxer are arranged in 5 discretely/discreetly themed clusters. Pictures in a particular cluster must be cardinally contiguous to be valid. For example, A1, B1, C1, D1, D2 is a possible cluster, unlike A2, B2, C2, D2, E3. To fully defox today’s enlargeable puzzle identify the themes and constituent images […]


The Flare Path: An Invisible Insurgency
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 8:00 am
I’ve been superintending Saracens, Saladins, and Scouts in the Fulda Gap for the last few days courtesy of Armored Brigade (this column concludes with some thoughts on the current state of the game plus a competition with two expanded copies as prizes). This restricted play diet in combination with some compelling TV documentaries has turned […]


Apex Legends Season 3 invests in Crypto next month
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 8:51 am
Like any good hacker, Crypto – not to be confused with Krypto, The Superdog – has been quietly operating behind the scenes for a long time. He’s taken the spotlight before, blowing up the dinosaur-b-gone tower that kicked off Apex Legends’ first season, but we’ve never caught sight of this mysterious bad boy. In the […]


Logitech G915 Lightspeed review: Wireless keyboard perfection
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 9:00 am
Spending over a hundred quid on a keyboard is a big ask at the best of times, which is partly why half the entries currently populating my best gaming keyboard list all come in well below that. Over two hundred quid, though? That’s positively extortionate. But man alive does the £210 / $250 Logitech G915 […]


Shoot a lot of future robots in Terminator: Resistance this winter
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 9:21 am
Termie’s quite a busy robot these days. The nonspecific robot skeleton has been popping up in other people’s fights with startling frequency lately. Need someone to help chainswordgun an alien bug in half in Gears 5? Terminator’s there. Bashing interdimensional martial artists in a bloody tournament with cold, metal fists in Mortal Kombat 11? Yeah, […]


Wot I Think: Little Misfortune
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 7:00 am
Developer: Killmonday Games Publisher: Killmonday Games Release: Out now On: PC, Mac From: Steam, GOG, Humble Price: £15.49/$20/€16.79 The thing about Misfortune Ramirez Hernandez, the titular protagonist of Little Misfortune, is that she only has a few animations, and one of them is falling flat on her face. That’s part of the lot she’s been […]


Borderlands 3 hot fix fixes little, Gearbox say actual fixes are on the way
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 6:32 am
If you’ve been bumming about Borderlands 3 with a handful of stuttering frames to your name, I have some underwhelming news. Developers Gearbox have released a hotfix that “does not include issues that the community is immediately concerned with”, along with a statement to say they’re working on those. They’ve also posted a list of […]


Have You Played… Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2019, 2:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. That’s the name for this sort of thing, isn’t it? Though it needn’t be confined to just Kevin Bacon. If you’re good with names and faces and you’re after a fun little game to play with […]


Wot I Think: Eliza

Jenny LeClue – Detectivú opens her investigation today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2019, 4:00 pm
It’s been quite a while since we caught up with young Jenny LeClue – Detectivú. RPS exile John was quite taken by the game’s demo back in 2015, following a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign. And then, she went silent. Sleuthing, I reckon, hiding in the shadows to unravel the case of the unfinished adventure game. […]


Neo Cab has a demo now, and launches in October
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2019, 5:00 pm
You can today hop behind the wheel of the final human-driven taxis in our near-future in a new demo for Neo Cab. That’s the chat-o-driver we’ve cooed at a few times since its announcement in 2018, and it’s finally almost here. As well as releasing the demo, developers Chance Agency today announced a release date […]


Batman is free in both Lego and Arkham flavours on the Epic Games Store
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2019, 3:06 pm
Light the candles, roast the goose, Father Epic has come to town. Bearing gifts of cost-free games, he’s telling tale of a masked menace from a far-off metropolis. Clad in black and the cowl of a bat – what delightful nonsense! For the younger children, a toy-like series of marvels await in the Lego Batman […]
