Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 5:05 pm
You can’t go a week without an intriguing tactics game popping up – today’s is Element Space, a story-driven tactical RPG from Sixth Vowel, debuting into early access. This one breaks away from XCOM’s familiar combat grid, offering familiar cover systems, but free movement.

Wrestle with climate change in Civilization VI’s next expansion, Gathering Storm
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 2:00 pm
It’s easy to forget that human civilisation has only been around for a tiny fraction of Earth’s history, and that mother nature is a stone cold killer. Our planet and how we affect it is the focus of Gathering Storm, the second major expansion for Sid Meier’s Civilization 6. There are natural disasters capable of […]

Overwatch is free to try and cheap to keep for the next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 3:03 pm
Somehow, there are still people out there who don’t own Blizzard’s sci-fi superhero team shooter Overwatch. This is despite the game being free approximately a quarter of the time (or at least it feels like it) and heavily discounted half of the remainder. If you’re one of those people, now seems as good a time […]

What a giant catfish taught me about happiness at Final Fantasy XIV fan festival
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 3:12 pm
“If you notice,” says the catfish, “everyone is smiling around me.” It’s true. This huge fish person has been waddling through crowds of people who grin even as they duck under the beast’s massive barbels. Several people are taking photographs. I peer into the gaping mouth of the fish. Two human hands suddenly lurch out, […]

Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 1:02 pm

It was at the helm of GPS/AR/Maps-based "exergaming" in 2013 with Ingress, saw phenomenal success with Pokémon Go, and will launch a location-based Harry Potter mobile game next year.

There, members of the world’s richest elite are holding an event in an elaborate ruined castle. They’re gathering to discuss how they’re […]

There’s little else quite so frighteningly intimidating, yet wonderfully liberating, as stepping into a new Hitman game for the first time. While the first level is a fraction of the size of the others, these vast assassination playgrounds allow you to explore, poke around, and get up to all sorts of murderous mischief. It’s the […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 12:02 pm
We’ve all dreamed of escaping to the one place that hasn’t been corrupted by capitalism* but space is very much not that place in Stellaris, and will be even less so with after the launch of its ‘Megacorp’ expansion.

In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-style war for the best Black Friday deal on AMD’s Radeon RX 580 graphics card, Powercolor have emerged with an even better bargain than yesterday’s Sapphire one (the latter of which has now annoyingly returned to its original price of £220).

Fallout 76 CAMP: taking over workshops, buildings you should make
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 12:14 pm
Appalachia is still a lovely place to pitch up a tent and take in some breathtaking views, but in Fallout 76, it’s not at its best. After all, it did just have nuclear bombs explode in its vicinity, much like the rest of America. Still, you have to make do, and your handy tool for […]

Fallout 76 weapons: best weapons, how to craft weapons
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 12:14 pm
Everything’s out to kill you in Fallout 76, so you’ll need stuff to defend yourself. Melee weapons, ranged weapons, maybe an explosive or two. Perhaps the only way to take down an enemy is to make them eat a Fat Man nuke. While the weapons you have aren’t massively different from Fallout 4, they now […]

Fallout 76 crafting: best armour, how outfits work
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 12:14 pm
With so many things trying to kill you in Appalachia, it’s worth investing some of the resources you find in the wrecked buildings and desolate countryside into making armour. These armour pieces are worn over the top of outfits, which are how you add some more unique touches to how you look. That said, some […]

Fallout 76 guide: tips and tricks, how to survive in Appalachia
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 12:14 pm
With Fallout 76 releasing much earlier than it was supposed to (thanks Bethesda), there’s no better time to emerge from Vault 76 and make your mark in the world of Appalachia. However, this is not the typical Fallout game, as this one is online. There are a ton of other changes; from how Perks work […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 12:23 pm
Nu-Hitman’s time-limited Elusive Targets are nothing new, but this latest is worth a spot of ballyhoo because a) it’s the first one for the simply sublime Hitman 2 2 b) it’s only bloody Hornblower himself. Sean Bean’s famed for meeting a great many sticky Hollywood ends, which the Elusive Target nicknamed ‘The Undying’ makes a […]

Steam Link game streaming box is almost gone for good
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2018, 12:18 pm

If you've been thinking of getting a Steam Link box, you may want to buy it soon -- if you can even find one, that is. Valve has announced that its Steam Link boxes are sold out in Europe and are almost gone in the US, as well. Further, it sounds like that company has no plans to release more. The game developer said in an announcement that it intends to support existing Link hardware and to distribute its software versions going forward. A Steam Link box allows you to play your games in your living room or anywhere else in your home away from your PC. Just plug it into a TV, and it will discover any computer running the platform.
