We have a GIFbot in the RPS staff chatroom. GIFbot is a treacherous and unreliable creature, often offering wildly irrelevant or breathtakingly banal results when we type ‘/gif whateverphrase’ and then cope with whatever it randomly pulls from whatever reprobate corner of the internet it’s plugged into it. However, often enough its results are so […]

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 creeps onto PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 April 2017, 7:01 am
First-person sneak-o-shooter Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] is now out, popping digital faces from afar in Georgia (not the American one). While the first two Ghostbusters were linear, 3 goes open-world like your Wildlandses and your Far Cries. Ghostbusters 3 is built for sneaking around, surveilling, and carefully picking shots, but players can also […]

'Alien: Covenant' VR experience emerges on April 26th
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 April 2017, 10:22 pm

Both Fox and director Ridley Scott have made bit commitments to virtual reality, and you're about to see just how those commitments are evolving... in an unsettling way. Fox has revealed that Alien: Covenant's VR experience, In Utero, will be available for Oculus Rift wearers on April 26th. As the name implies, the production shows the terror from the baby alien's (that is, neomorph's) perspective as it's born. The teaser clip doesn't show much, but it's already disconcerting -- you can hear muffled screams as the humans realize something is about to go very, very wrong.

I finally completed Dark Souls III [official site] last week, a world that I have been dipping in and out of between bouts of listlessness since its release in April last year. It didn’t grip me like the first revered Dark Souls, but it still made me sad to know it was all over. Where […]

[RP] An die Caldari Piloten!

OIJANEN - The State Peacekeepers have confirmed the status of the ongoing cleanup in the city of Myrskaa this afternoon, in a statement that sheds light on the process and gives further details on the massive logistical effort currently taking place on Oijanen II.

During a press conference hosted at 13:00 NEST Today, Brigadier General Varanori Ruukin, Executive Officer of the State Peacekeepers, confirmed that "more than three quarters of the survivors of the Kyonoke outbreak within the Myrskaa Metropolitan area have now been screened and evacuated, thanks to the efficient efforts of the men and women of the State Armed Forces, and the diligent work of both Zainou and Ishukone staff.

"Thankfully, several key pieces of transport infrastructure have remained in place, allowing the mass medivac of a little over eighteen million in seven days. Working around the clock, a combined force of Home Guard, State Peacekeeper, Ishukone Watch and Peace and Order Unit personnel have utilized a combination of airlift evacuations, along with all three lines of the MARTN system that link the city of Myrskaa with the Ruusaka District megalopolis, which lies two thousands kilometers to the south."

Speaking from the operational headquarters of the State Peacekeepers, which lie just a hundred kilometers from the quarantine nanodomes that still prevent unauthorized access to the city, General Ruukin confirmed that a "large pre-fabricated settlement" is already nearing completion on the west side of Ruusaka, which already boasts a population of more than two hundred million, and that "Ruusaka's infrastructure and services are more than capable of handling a population influx of this magnitude."

At this time there has been no further comment on a date for completion of the cleanup operation and subsequent destruction of the city, however it has been confirmed by the Myrskaa Metropolitan Corporation that tenders for the contract to reconstruct the city have already been received by several megacorporations, with Sukuuvesta and Caldari Constructions currently the two front runners vying for a lucrative contract that sees the value of salvage rights alone estimated close to a trillion interstellar kredits.

'Breath of the NES' is a retro 'Zelda' fan project destined to die
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 April 2017, 4:12 pm

While you wait for something else to play on your Switch (might I suggest looking into TumbleSeed?), you could kill some time with Breath of the NES. As the name suggests, the fan-project was inspired by Nintendo's 8-bit Breath of the Wild prototype that the company divulged during a GDC panel earlier this year. This isn't a straight facsimile though. Developer WinterDrake has added modern lighting and shadows (the fireflies are particularly impressive), while keeping gameplay mostly familiar.

Teensy Bayonetta update hints at Vanquish on PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 April 2017, 1:58 pm
Because video games can’t ever state good news plainly, Sega are pulling a prank which seems like it’s meant to resemble a teaser campaign for a PC release of Platinum’s underappreciated 2010 shooter Vanquish. The recent (and overdue) PC release of Bayonetta today received a wee update adding only a picture of Vanquish’s protagonist to […]
