Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 5:00 pm
All aboard the nostalgia express! Free toy train set builder Tracks [official site] is getting a proper commercial release later this year, hauling a carriage-load of new features into the Steam Early Access station. Arrival date: September 28th. I’m buying a ticket early for this one. The free version (which you can get here) is a […]


(The Not So) Secret World Legends
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 4:58 pm
I played The Secret World when it first came out, but lets be honest here, I am a big cry baby, and I frighten easily so I never got very far. The game is...


Quake Champions will bunny hop onto Steam too
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 3:00 pm
I’m eagerly following the progress of free-to-play shooter Quake Champions [official site]. I spent a good year of my life in the browser-based Quake Live bunny hopping, insta-gibbing and failing to rocket jump over the smallest of obstacles (seriously, I can’t rocket jump in any game), and had a blast. I haven’t had the chance to play […]


Titanfall 2 adding two new maps free next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 1:00 pm
Titanfall 2 pilots – you’re in luck. The game’s getting a free update next week (27 June) called The War Games, which adds two maps and a few new features. If that DLC title sounds familiar then that’s because it’s named after a map from the original Titanfall, War Games, which will now be available […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 10:00 am
The incredible rise of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds [official site] continues. The early access Battle Royale ’em up has surpassed 4 million copies sold, developers Bluehole Studio announced yesterday, which is… er… a lot. The game hasn’t even come out yet and it’s sold more copies than Zelda: Breath of the Wild (that’s at 3 million, and Link had […]


What are we all playing this weekend?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 5:00 am
June is bustin’ out all over, wrote Rodgers and Hammerstein, and bustin’ makes me feel good. If summer could hold out just a little longer and last the weekend, ooh that’d be grand. And if it doesn’t, hey, we can shelter indoors playing video games. What are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking […]


GTA publishers are leaving OpenIV alone after all
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 6:06 am
Grand Theft Auto V [official site] developers Rockstar Games appear to have talked parent company Take-Two Interactive out of shutting down OpenIV, a modding tool for GTA IV and V. This is good news. The makers of OpenIV received a cease-and-desist letter from Take-Two earlier this month, prompting outrage from players, but Rockstar have confirmed […]


Thimbleweed Park gets in-game hint hotline
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 4:00 am
I’m constantly getting stuck in Thimbleweed Park [official site], the old-school adventure game from the creators of Maniac Mansion, Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick. I always seem to have an inventory full of loose popcorn, soot, a t-shirt and some dynamite with no clue as to how to combine them in order to get ice cream […]


Exclusive Logan deleted scene reveals Caliban's final fate
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2017, 4:06 am
Logan is without a doubt one of the best movies of the year, and will be on many a wish list once it's released for home entertainment

If you've been playing Pokemon Go in preparation for the gym update we previewed at E3 2017, good news: it's now live! Bad news: its reception could be better


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered standalone release coming
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 4:36 pm
Love a duck and stone the crows, Activision are finally going to sell Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered [official site] seperately. Because they’re a gaggle of silly sausages, they originally launched the revamped version of 2007’s wildly popular Call of Duty 4 only as a bonus included in expensive editions of the wildly unpopular […]


GTA 5 is a monstrously large game, full of easter eggs and hidden secrets


Has Assassin’s Creed managed to find itself during its gap year?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 2:00 pm
During the Assassin’s Creed: Origins [official site] demo I played at E3, I pressed the wrong button and thought I’d broken the game. I was trying to switch to my bow while sneaking and I accidentally meditated, causing time to fast forward. The sun wheeled around the sky, sank below the horizon, and night fell. […]


Have your Overwatch loot boxes been feeling a bit stale lately? If you've been playing since launch (like me) you may be discouraged by the rarity of legendary items and the frequency of duplicate drops


Steam summer sale: our giant recommendations list
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 1:01 pm
The Steam summer sale is in full blaze. For a while it even blazed so hot that the servers went on fire and all the price stickers peeled off the games. Either that or the store just got swamped with cheapskates looking for the best bargains. Cheapskates like you! Well, don’t worry. We’ve rounded up […]


Homeworld: Cataclysm re-emerges as Emergence
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 1:02 pm
Homeworld: Cataclysm, the standalone expansion to Relic’s splendid spacefaring strategy game, has popped up on GOG after years of not being sold anywhere. Though the original Homeworld and its sequel were rereleased and remastered in 2015, playing Cataclysm has been the preserve of pirates and that ‘physical media’ rabble. No more! Homeworld: Cataclysm can be […]

20,000 Atmospheres is full of buttons to press
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 10:51 am
I do like games where I control machinery through a (virtual) physical interface, yanking on levers and tapping buttons on a control panel. The upcoming 20,000 Atmospheres [Itch page] adores fiddling too, putting players in the cockpit of a legged submarine-sort-of-thing walking across the surface of a planet with a crushing atmosphere (so a supermarine?). […]


Have You Played… Beetle Crazy Cup?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I was pretty new to games reviewing when cheery RPS Magazine tribute magazine PC Gamer handed me Beetle Crazy Cup to review in 2000. I’d been at it for less than a year, and had pretty […]

Everything Is Going To Be OK gets early access PWYW
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 8:48 am
Experimental project Everything Is Going To Be Okay [Gamejolt link] is having an early access-ish period to help developer Nathalie Lawhead (who you may know from her 2015 IGF award-winning project, Tetrageddon Games) finish it off. I hesitate to use the word game because that doesn’t really encapsulate anything about the project – instead let’s […]


Farming Simulator 17 off to South America in expansion
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 8:49 am
The thrills, chills, and slurry spills of Farming Simulator 17 [official site] are off to South America in an expansion this November, publishers Focus Home Interactive have announced. The ‘Platinum’ expansion will add a new farm set in an unnamed pretty South American country, where sugar cane is a new crop to harvest. Supposedly that […]

Oh, boy, the Steam Summer Sale has started. Alright, look, I know that time is precious and every moment spent reading this roundup of the best deals of the week is time not spent perusing Steam, so I’ll just cut to the chase and get to the offers. We’ve got deals that’ll work in the […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2017, 6:36 am
Paradox Interactive, the gang behind games including Crusader Kings and Hearts of Iron, have pledged to undo their recent increases to regional prices across much of the world. While many of the price rises were minor, others were huge. For example, the price of Stellaris in Russia went from 699₽ to 1199₽. Paradox had said […]
