Final Fantasy XV’s co-op expands with its PC launch
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 7:00 pm
We’re just two weeks from the PC release of Final Fantasy XV. Despite a wobbly start on consoles, Square have poured a shocking amount of support into the game, and I admit no small amount of excitement for the re-launch, especially after the benchmark confirmed that my new laptop can more than handle the game […]


Fable Fortune, RPG series’ CCG spinoff launching soon
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 5:35 pm
Update, Correction: It does appear that Steam players can play with and against XBox and Windows 10 owners of the game, which is nice. After seven months in early access to hammer it into ship-shape, RPG-turned-CCG Fable Fortune just about ready for launch. With an official release date of February 22nd, it’ll be rolling out on Microsoft […]


Overwatch’s adorable Puppy Rumble kicks off soon
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 5:50 pm
It’s been a long day. The 24 hour hellscape that is our current news cycle, industry strikes, the sudden return of Tekwar, it all takes its psychological toll. It’s time for some easygoing self care, and I cannot think of anything I would rather watch tonight than the Overwatch Puppy Rumble, a Blizzard-run live charity […]


PSVR's rodent adventure 'Moss' arrives February 27th
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 5:58 pm

PlayStation VR's adorable murine tale Moss finally has a release date. Next Tuesday, February 27th, you'll be able to guide the big-eared rodent Quill along her adventure on your PlayStation 4. When it debuted at E3 last year, developer Polyarc (made up, in part, of former Bungie and Rockstar Games alums) promised the mouse-scale adventure would be out by holiday, but the game was delayed until this spring. If you're curious how it'll play before you drop hard-earned cash, there's a demo version available as part of the free PSVR demo disc on the PlayStation Network Store. Need more convincing? Maybe the new trailer below will do the trick.

Wargame & Steel Division devs Eugen go on strike
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 2:58 pm
It was only just last week that I was remarking at how pleasantly consistent Eugen Systems’ support of Steel Division and their Wargame series has been over the past few years. Sadly, it seems that constant stream of fresh new content may have come at great human cost. Immediately after the release of the Back […]

Mega Man fans were likely excited to hear that the next chapter in the venerable video game franchise, Mega Man 11, is slated for a release sometime this year. At the same time, Capcom announced plans to release two new Mega Man Legacy Collection compilations. Now we've got a date for their release on Nintendo Switch: May 22, 2018.

Log into GTA Online to swipe $250,000 free virtuacash
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 12:41 pm
I write this partially as a reminder to myself: every Grand Theft Auto V player who logs onto GTA Online by next Monday, the 26th, will receive $250,000 of in-game cash. It’s not a staggering sum, but it’s enough to ease a new player in nicely or help established criminals save for something big and […]


New platformer Spinch will contain all seven colours
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 1:05 pm
It’s gone 6pm and we’ve not posted anything wildly colourful? That’s not on. Here, look at Spinch, an upcoming platformer which contains a large number of colours. It’s being made by Queen Bee Games together with comic artist Jesse Jacobs and musician James Kirkpatrick. Canny, teaming up with a comic artist; everyone knows they’ve got […]


Why revealing all is the secret of Slay The Spire’s success
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 2:00 pm
This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to discuss the difficult journeys they underwent to make the best bits of their games. This time, Slay the Spire [official site]. Slay the Spire is a deck-building card game about careful attack and defence. And poisoning. And letting your own blood to amplify your damage, […]


William Shatner’s Tekwar lives again… for some reason
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 2:00 pm
William Shatner’s Tekwar, released way back in 1995, was exactly the sort of game you’d expect to see from a meeting of minds as brilliant as Ol’ Bill Shatner (baffler of evil computers, aspiring writer of words) and Capstone Software, the studio behind such classics as Surf Ninjas and Terminator 2: Chess Wars. It combined stilted FMV Shatner monologues, […]


Citadel Destruction Unleashed
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 1:15 pm
A major aspect of the February update released last week was the Upwell 2.0 revisions.  Those were designed to make blowing up citadels… at least unused or neglected citadels… much easier. A couple items… the shields being


Twitch postpones new rules to clarify vague expectations
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 1:31 pm

Twitch is temporarily putting the brakes on its new rules for hate speech, harassment and sexual material. The livestreaming service has postponed the enforcement of new rules from February 19th to March 5th in order to "better explain some sections" in the wake of feedback. The company hasn't explained just what those sections are (we've asked Twitch to elaborate), but there's a good chance it's addressing both streamers' oversight of their viewers as well as acceptable clothing.

Sweatness and light: The Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya review
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 12:00 pm
Join Ella McConnell for Waifu Material, a new monthly column in which she navigates the murky, cherry-blossom-strewn waters of visual novels, dating sims, and everything in between (reader masochism not required but strongly recommended). [Content warning: sketchy consent stuff.] With one of my most recent visual novel excursions having been the cat-fucking creepiness of NEKOPARA, […]


'Super Mario Bros.' encyclopedia comes to the US October 23rd
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 11:26 am

Nintendo did many things to mark the 30th anniversary of Super Mario Bros., but there's been one you couldn't usually get your hands on unless you lived in Japan: the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia. You'll be glad to hear that it's coming to the West, though. Dark Horse Publishing has announced that the official guide to Mario's universe will be available in a standard edition in the US on October 23rd for $40. Amazon is also hinting at releases in the UK and Europe, although we don't have official information as of this writing.

You get to pick the next free games on Twitch Prime
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 12:15 pm

Twitch has been giving away free games with a Prime membership for awhile now, but now you'll have a say in what's handed out each month. With the Indie Amplifier program, users can pick from eight indie games and the one with the most votes will be given away March 15th. Here's what's in the running:




Cooperative sneak-o-hacker Hacktag is out now
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 9:45 am
Hacktag, the two-player cooperative stealth game where one player is a field agent sneaking around megacorp facilities and the other’s a hacker jacking the building’s datanet, is now properly out. Hacktag caught my eye when it hit early access last year but I’d rather wait until it was finished, and now it is. I’ll have […]


Mavericks: Proving Grounds is an FPS MMO with a 400 player battle royale mode
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 9:48 am
Imagine we’re trapped in a lift. If I started to pitch “400 player Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds” to you, would you scream and start clawing ineffectually at the doors – or gesture for me to continue, with a weary yet intrigued expression on your face? FPS MMO Mavericks: Proving Ground was revealed last Saturday, and it promises […]


Northgard sails out of early access on March 7
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 10:25 am
When we declared Northgard one of the best games of 2017, the Norse mythology RTS was still in early access. If it was that great then, how swell will it be when it’s actually finished? We’ll see on March 7th, the release date announced today by developers Shiro Games. One big feature coming with the […]


Have You Played… Messiah?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. You are a chubby baby, sent down from heaven to Earth in order to… I dunno… possess workmen and force them to jump into big grinding industrial machinery? That’s certainly how I played Messiah. There might […]


Steam Charts: Pre-Congeal Edition
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 7:46 am
As the charting games on Steam once more congeal into a single amorphous lump, quickly dive in to catch the last appearance of Subnautica, and probably Slay The Spire too. Next week it’ll just be GTA: Counter-Strike – Witcher Battlegrounds.


Rainbow Six Siege’s next operators deploy drones and medical nanomachines
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 7:56 am
The next two characters coming to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will bring the superpowers of surveillance and cyberdrugs, Ubisoft announced over the weekend. Lion and Finka, as they’re named, will arrive as part of Operation Chimera, the first big update of the wall-busting tactical shooter’s third year. Lion can scan the whole battlefield several […]


Flight sim group put malware in a jet and called it DRM
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 8:53 am
A company who makes add-ons for Flight Simulator X included malware in one of their downloadable jets, players have alleged. The malicious file is called ‘test.exe’ and it is designed to extract passwords from the Chrome web browser, according to the user who discovered it. The company in question, Flight Sim Labs, have since replaced the […]


The Morning After: Water purification could lead to more electric cars
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 February 2018, 6:30 am

Hey, good morning!

Welcome back! We hope you had a great weekend. We've been playing with some cool dinosaur toys (we're grown-ups, I promise), hearing about Tesla's next power grid experiment, and the end of free Wikipedia data for developing countries.
