At the end of a five-month Elite Dangerous expedition, I looked into the Abyss
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 July 2019, 4:00 am
My fuel tank might be full, but I can’t say the same for myself. Since leaving the galactic core with such high spirits, my energy levels have plummeted. The journey to the far edge of the Milky Way has become an isolated and grueling gauntlet of star jumps. Jumping from star to star, again and […]


Have You Played… Natural Soccer?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 July 2019, 2:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Natural Soccer is a football game where you can bend the ball in impossible and ridiculous ways while it’s in mid-air. Besides this one trait, it’s a pretty ordinary – and very simple – take on […]


HTFU – from Hilmar with Love
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 July 2019, 1:30 am
Last weekend I made a tweet on Twitter. I forgot about it a few seconds later. It was a #salttweet and it was one of the most viral and influential tweets in the EVE Online community for an entire week. It all began with a Venture on the Dscan in

Gears Of War 5 now preloading this weekend's PvP test
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 5:59 pm
If you like your dudes (or ladies) beefy, guns improbably en-chainsawed and your Ps versus other Ps, there’s a Gears Of War 5 flavoured slab of it landing this weekend, starting July 19th, 6pm BST. If you’ve got around ten gigabytes of bandwidth and an Xbox Game Pass subscription (or trial), then you can squirt it […]


Nightmare Reaper awakens into early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 4:50 pm
I may pride myself on being the resident retro FPS guy, but this genre revival has been so wild that some neat-looking stuff even flies under my radar. Nightmare Reaper launched into early access yesterday, a roguelite FPS by Blazing Bit Games. I’d almost overlooked it thanks to its extra-chunky graphics and the inherent difficulties […]


Ghost Recon Wildlands signs out with the PvPvE Mercenaries mode
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 3:01 pm
With its sequel, Breakpoint, just a few months off, Ubisoft have one last gift for Ghost Recon Wildlands players that stuck around, launching free on July 18th. Mercenaries is an eight-player multiplayer mode and a radical departure from the regular game. Part survival challenge, part mini battle royale (with respawns), it reminds me of Survival […]

Squad finally has tutorials after three and a half years in early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 12:48 pm
Tactical sim-shooter Squad is an intimidating beast. Boasting realism up there with the Arma series, but the added pressure of having 39 other players relying on you, it seems like it should have a tutorial. And now it does, coming just a few months after its December 15th early access debut. In 2015. Ah. Still, […]


AMD Ryzen 5 3600X review: A fantastic mid-range gaming CPU
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 1:00 pm
After years of playing catch-up to their Intel rivals, AMD have definitely come out swinging with the launch of their new Ryzen 3000 CPUs. Their high-end Ryzen 7 3700X, for example, made a pretty good impression when I reviewed it a couple of weeks ago, and as an overall value for money play is probably […]


Gloomhaven launches into early access with some major bits missing
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 2:03 pm
Co-op dungeon crawling board game Gloomhaven has made the hop to PC today, though it’ll be a while yet until it’s really comparable to its giant-boxed physical counterpart. Today’s early access version lacks multiplayer or the campaign from the tabletop edition, and instead repackages the game into a solo roguelike experience. Developers Flaming Fowl say […]


Summer Movie League – Stuber Stumbles, Crawl Bawls
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 3:15 pm
Week six of our Fantasy Movie League carried on the trend of new films failing to meet expectations. In this case, the two new films for week six, Stuber and Crawl, both failed to hit the somewhat modest expectations set for them, keeping the summer theme

Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 12:57 pm

Erangel, the map in which the battle royale craze truly began in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, is getting a major overhaul for season 4. PUBG Corp said the update brings Erangel in line with more recent maps, adding new buildings, revamping terrain and improving graphics.

Anti-Brexit RPG ‘Not Tonight’ is coming to Switch
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 2:19 pm

The anti-Brexit game Not Tonight may be a year old, but it's still just as relevant. With the Brexit deadline pushed back to October and heightened political tension in the US, the game's digs at the gig economy, right-wing extremism and nationalism are timely. Soon, you'll be able to take all of that on the go. No More Robots and developer PanicBarn are bringing the RPG game to Nintendo Switch with new content.

GOG now selling Heaven's Vault, having previously rejected it
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 11:09 am
Seeing as DRM is a real barrier to the preservation of our cultural history, it’s only fitting that the dead-language-translating archaeology ’em up Heaven’s Vault is now sold on GOG too. The virtual vendors of vintage (and virgin) video games had originally rejected Heaven’s Vault and declined to stock it, but this week chucked a […]


Wastes of Space: A Space Engineers Diary – Part Seven: The Ant Man Cometh
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 12:00 pm
Previously on Wastes of Space: Hapless astronauts Alice B, Alice L, Matt and Nate were duped into signing up for a one-way mission to the distant exoplanet known as Horace’s World. Alas, they were not there to make new lives for themselves among the stars, as they believed – they were indentured labour, bound to […]


Teamfight Tactics – how to play TFT
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 12:09 pm
If you’re a little new to Teamfight Tactics, TFT for short, then you may be a little confused as to how players are accumulating gold, and what all the different pieces of the user interface actually mean. It’s gone through a few changes in a recent patch and there are some very useful tools that […]


Teamfight Tactics guide
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 12:09 pm
Teamfight Tactics, or TFT for short, is the new mode in League of Legends based on the auto-battler trend where you purchase and deploy champions to fight on your behalf. If you’ve played the other games in the genre, there are some important differences in TFT that may catch you off guard.

'Streets of Rage 4' will be scored by an all-star group of composers
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 10:40 am

However well Streets of Rage 4 turns out, it should at least have a top-tier soundtrack. Guard Crush Games, Lizardcube and Dotemu have revealed that the side-scrolling beat-em-up will have music from Motohiro Kawashima and Yuzo Koshiro, both of whom produced soundtracks for the original Streets of Rage games. They'll tap into the "thumping club anthems" you may remember from the first three titles while creating new sounds.

And for a change of pace, we take a look at an intriguing visual novel, Miss Fisher and the Deathly Maze.

Nintendo quietly upgrades the Switch with up to 9 hours of battery life
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 9:53 am

The murmurs of an upgraded Switch were true -- although you might want to put hopes for a Switch Pro on ice, at least for now. Nintendo has quietly unveiled a new revision of the standard Switch with dramatically improved battery life. Instead of the original's 2.5 to 6.5 hours, the new model manages a much healthier 4.5 to 9 hours. That's about 5.5 hours of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild versus the earlier three hours, Nintendo estimated. You shouldn't have problems playing through a cross-country flight.

'Luigi's Mansion 3' is coming out on Halloween
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 10:10 am

You'll be able to help Luigi and his new pal Gooigi tackle hordes of ghosts at the spookiest time of year, because Nintendo has confirmed Luigi's Mansion 3 will arrive on Switch October 31st. In the first incarnation of the series on the hybrid console, Luigi and his gooey doppelgänger Gooigi will battle through the haunted Last Resort hotel. You can switch between the two, or you can rope in a friend to play as Gooigi. There's also a multiplayer mode called ScareScraper in which up to eight people can play together online and locally.

Know It OWL: Dragons at the peak
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 July 2019, 8:00 am
Keep up to speed with the Overwatch League with Know It OWL, as our weekend editor Jay Castello gives you the fortnightly highlights. I’ve said two things here multiple times. Firstly, this season of the Overwatch League is one of upsets and unpredictability. Secondly, I love and cherish Shanghai Dragons. But I still wasn’t ready […]
