2013's Receiver is now prettier and smoother and you should play it
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 September 2019, 5:57 am
Revelling in the finer points of gun operation seems distasteful to me now in a way that it didn’t back in 2013, but I still bloody love Receiver. It’s about stalking across dystopian rooftops, deserted but for the turrets and drones intent on killing you. So far so videogames, but what sets Receiver apart is […]


The Monday Papers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 September 2019, 5:30 am
Mondays are for scheduling articles that were meant to go up on Sunday. Sundays are for, if I’m honest, doing very little but laze around and play videogames. Here’s the best writing about them from the past week. Here’s a marvellous piece from Holly Gramazio about Wilmot’s Warehouse and Brexit. Well, a bit about Brexit. […]


Have You Played… Copter?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 September 2019, 2:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time… Speak not to me of your Flappy Bird, childling. I only sup from the finest Flash cup. In here? Why, it’s fully liquidised Copter. Please, have a taste. Ah yes, I can tell from your crinkling […]


Prayer-based RPG Churchgoers descends into stores
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 September 2019, 4:00 pm
There’s a number of things on your to-do list in the teal world of Churchgoers. Learning new prayers to better navigate the world, avenging your sister’s murder, and trying not to fall asleep on the bus. That last one is probably, and understandably, the hardest one, as demonstrated by the launch trailer below.


WoWCraft and Classic Queues
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 September 2019, 2:15 pm
Carbot Animation appears to be jumping on the WoW Classic train along with a lot of other people.  They revived their WoWCraft series of videos with the launch of WoW Classic and have another video up in the series about queues. The joke isn’t about


Find your place in Pine's ecosystem of intelligent animals
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 September 2019, 1:00 pm
Open world ecological simulation Pine drops you in the shoes* of a human who lives among intelligent animals, and asks you to carve out your own niche. You’ll have to figure out how to navigate the world, craft what you need, and generally survive. And also not get stepped on by a bipedal mammoth. Take […]


As well as calling for government regulation of loot boxes under gambling law, Parliament’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee report on “immersive and addictive technologies” had interesting things to say around other “psychosocial harms” of video games. Steering clear of terms like “gaming addiction,” they presented a surprisingly nuanced view of how certain […]


Screenshot Saturday Sundays: Darling demons, creepy chambers, and enormous ears
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 September 2019, 10:29 am
Screenshot Saturday! A day for seeing what’s going on with some games that are currently in development, and appreciating them for just what they are right now as well as what they might eventually be. This week: a happy little demon pal, a little combat improvement, and one very fluffy sheep.


Magnificent Magnate – A Painting
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 September 2019, 7:52 am
Editor’s Note: This week we’re featuring Kamiti Arcamer’s art work. Hope you enjoy and I hope too we’ll see more from her and other Signaleers in the future. Dreams have lead me to the stars and yet beyondalways searching, never finding the dreams


This, Too, Has Passed is the pensive remix to a virtually unobtainable game
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 September 2019, 7:00 am
This, Too, Has Passed is a melancholy thing. You wander slowly around a world, watching crunchy snow expand in a gentle creep beneath your feet, and occasionally get interrupted with portends of doom. It’s a meditation on the climate crisis and collapse and savouring small things. It’s also a “B-Side remix” to a game that […]


Fit Kitchen: The Drekavac
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2019, 7:49 pm
The Drekavac is, hands down, the best ship I've ever used in EVE Online. No exaggeration, no hyperbole, I fucking love it. We're probably overdue an optimistic fitting article anyway though so here we go!


Overcooked 2 goes to the circus in its latest DLC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2019, 4:00 pm
One might be forgiven for thinking that Overcooked 2 is already a Carnival Of Chaos, but it’s becoming even more so with its latest DLC. As ever, there’s new levels and recipes to tackle, and new chefs to do so with. But there’s also a new mechanic: huge great cannons to blast yourself out of. […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2019, 4:00 pm
If you’ve not been following PC games goings-on across the week, catch up on some of the big stories quick in our noncomprehensive Weekly News Digest. Do also read The Updates Update for some of the week’s notable patches and updates.


Build your own glitched driving track in Need 4e+9 Speed
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2019, 1:00 pm
Driving games are by their nature chaotic, but that’s something of an understatement for Need 4e+9 Speed. Not only are you and up to three pals building the track underneath you as you go, casting colourful ribbons all about the place, there’s two very important dedicated buttons: Glitch and Horn.


The Weekly Updates Update: fixing history
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2019, 1:00 pm
In all the hubbub of the week, you might’ve missed some of the patches and updates rolled out to games. Presenting the Weekly Updates Update, a noncomprehensive roundup of new maps and characters and balance tweaks and fixes and such which caught my eye over the week.


Null Sec Blackout to End on Monday
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2019, 2:15 pm
I woke up this morning to find some fresh news from the Chaos Era, though this time it seemed a bit counter-chaos.  CCP Cognac announced at the Berlin Fanfest that delayed local in null sec, the blackout, will be over after downtime on Monday. CCP had


Kind Words lets you share caring messages with strangers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2019, 10:00 am
The chatrooms of lo fi hip hop YouTube radio channels are often very sweet spaces. People mingle, letting each other know what they’re up to as they listen to the ambient sounds: work, studying, relaxing. Everyone doing their own thing, but united by some chillhop beats and the virtual space of the chat window. It […]


Discord will end subscription games access next month
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2019, 7:00 am
Chat app Discord is shuttering its Nitro Games catalogue next month. Subscribers will no longer be able to access a library of games as part of the service, which included titles like Battle Chef Brigade, Tyranny, and the first couple of Bioshocks. Apparently, the “vast majority” of subscribers never played the games, so Discord have […]


American Election is a harrowing political horror
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2019, 5:23 am
American elections take exactly one hundred years, and by the final day everyone’s so sick of it that they just vote for the most recognisable name to get it over with. American Election, on the other hand, is a work of interactive fiction that estimates its own run time at one hour, but if you’re […]


What are we all playing this weekend?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2019, 4:00 am
It’s the penultimate weekend of the summer so I of course implore you to spend your daytime outside soaking up as much as you can before autumn sweeps us indoors and entombs us in jumpers and blankets, forcing hot cocoa down our throats. God, autumn will be good, as much as I’ll miss summer. What […]


Sea Of Thieves gets a microtransaction store
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 September 2019, 8:26 pm
Microtransactions have now come to Sea of Thieves as part of it’s September update, introducing parakeets that’ll set you back just under 500 Ancient Coin – that’s digital piratespeak for about five quid, or alternatively however long it takes you to grind the Ancient Skeletons who drop the currency. Hey man, just because you’re a […]


No, Keanu Reeves is not a romance option in Cyberpunk 2077
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 September 2019, 5:58 pm
There is finally an answer to the question everyone wanted to know but no one dare ask. No, you can’t bang Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk 2077.


GOG Galaxy gets a big ol' client update for finding any game in existance
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 September 2019, 4:10 pm
For the last couple months, GOG has been gathering feedback on the GOG Galaxy mega-games-launcher from its crew of closed beta testers. Today they’ve opened the gates and let out what they’ve been working on, the monolithic-sounding GOG Galaxy 2.0 Atlas Update. The update includes a whole lot of organizational possibilities, a Marie Kondo feverdream […]

Remnant: From The Ashes gets a free Adventure Mode
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 September 2019, 1:58 pm
It was just a few weeks back that the devs behind Darksiders III pushed their latest RPG out into the world, a shooty-uppy fantasy universe where magicdudes and RPGremlins have hurtled to Earth and begun trashing the place. Still covered in that talcum-fresh new baby smell, Remnant: From The Ashes has gotten a free update […]
