Running some Warzone Extraction Event Sites

eve online warzone extraction wtf? -search string that brought somebody here Easily the most popular thing I have posted so far this week… or month… is the announcement about the Warzone Extraction event in EVE Online.  Google has sent

Last week I popped off to play Bethesda and Tango Gameworks’ upcoming survival horror sequel The Evil Within 2, which adds open world elements to its stomp through a town filled with science-gone-wrong monstrosities. You can read what I thought about it in my Evil Within 2 impressions here, or alternatively you can watch what […]

How The Evil Within 2 tries to be an open world b-movie
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2017, 10:00 am
Let me qualify that title statement, for fear it merely conjures images of a game in which you’re supposed to be endlessly surprised to find more zombies lurking behind the next hedgerow. A good (or, indeed, bad) b-movie is not someone sprinting aimlessly around and being constantly jumped by monsters, but rather it’s scene-by-scene situational. […]

Stellaris: Synthetic Dawn activated today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2017, 10:15 am
Whether you want to assimilate organic life, purge it from the galaxy, or coddle it like helpless spacebabies, Stellaris [official site] has your robotic fantasies covered in its Synthetic Dawn add-on. Launched today, it lets players create their own robotic empire from the start (as opposed to transcending their flesh in the late game) with […]

Have You Played… Sonik the Hedgehog?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2017, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The famous blue forest animal is back with a new game. But true Sonick fans will never forget his first adventure, in which he raced across freshly cut lawns and battled the evil Dr Robot Nick. […]

This new trailer for Resident Evil 7's free Not A Hero DLC proves that, even in this slightly re-imagined world, veteran BOW killers don't have any patience for that "running and hiding" stuff

'Doom’ for the Nintendo Switch feels exactly like it’s supposed to
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2017, 10:00 am

When Nintendo announced the launch of the Switch by using footage from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it was a surprise -- but a reasonable one. Bethesda's open-world adventure game was beloved, but old enough that a port to Nintendo's new console seemed entirely reasonable. When the company announced that it was bringing the upcoming Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and last year's Doom reboot to the Nintendo Switch, however, it gave us pause. Those games were made for more powerful platforms, like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It sounded ambitious, but if the early build I played of Doom is anything to go by, they might actually pull this off.

Resident Evil 7: Not A Hero shows off face-punching
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2017, 8:39 am
After years of escalating ludicrousness and ultraviolence, Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] was a refreshing change of pace with its creepy spookhouse and hapless hero. But if you have missed burly blokes who work for shadowy organisations and murder their way through monsters with gay abandon, hold on another three months. RE7’s free DLC […]

Stunning visual puzzler 'The Witness' arrives on iOS
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2017, 7:30 am

After months of teases and rumour, striking 3D puzzle game The Witness has finally landed in the App Store, for both iPhone and iPad. Likened to a modern-day Myst, the open world game sees players wake up on a strange, colorful island with no memory of who they are or how they got there. Only by exploring the vast island, discovering clues and completing curious puzzles can they hope to regain their memory and somehow find their way home. With dozens of locations to discover and more than 500 puzzles to solve, The Witness is a beautiful beast of a game, available now for $10/£10.

Absolver patch whacks ‘spammers’ and adds masks
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2017, 5:51 am
Skinny weirdos in masks have been beating me up all month in martial arts biff-em-up Absolver [official site]. They’re called Absolvers because they grant absolution to my face with an endless barrage of kicks and slaps. Perhaps, with this latest update, I can finally treat an opponent to a sin-cleansing uppercut of my own. Patch […]

'Rainbow Six Seige' update could make your PS4 crash
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2017, 4:49 am

With more than 20 million players, it's safe to say that Rainbow Six Siege is still going strong. But, a new console crashing bug could put a damper on the good times for fans of the tactical shooter. At least on PS4, anyway. Gamers have been tweeting about the issue since the release of the title's latest patch, and Ubisoft has confirmed it is looking into it. For the time being, though, it doesn't have a fix. "Players have reported a crashing issue regarding the party invitation. We are cooperating with Sony on this issue and would advise you to not use this feature until a resolution is found," the developer said in a statement on its support site.

The Morning After: Thursday, September 21st 2017

Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

Welcome to Thursday. Apple's new Watch Series 3 has a tiny LTE connectivity issue -- something the company says it will fix in an update, but good luck to those with a pre-order. Google, as rumored, is buying HTC's Pixel team, and, well, half the latter's R&D contingent, too.

FIFA 18's story mode has become the franchise’s best feature
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2017, 12:01 am

When FIFA 17 came out last year, its standout feature was something called "The Journey." For the first time in the franchise's 24-year history, EA Sports added a story mode where you can pretend to live the life of a professional soccer (er, football) player. The plot centered around a fictional character named Alex Hunter, a British teenager who's trying to make a name for himself in the English Premier League. Your goal, naturally, is to guide him in his quest to do exactly that. Thanks to its success on FIFA 17, the adventure continues with FIFA 18's "The Journey: Hunter Returns."

'Overwatch' fights toxic players by muting them on Xbox Live
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2017, 7:28 pm

Yesterday, Overwatch's team released the new map, Junkertown, and a few character tweaks in a moderately-sized update. But tucked away in the patch notes was a new tool in Blizzard's fight against toxicity in the game: Xbox Live users that earn enough scorn for the "Avoid Me" reputation are banned from in-game voice chat.

Has Team Fortress 2 been improved by its updates?

Update Night is a fortnightly column in which Rich McCormick revisits games to find out whether they’ve been changed for better or worse. This is RPS, so let’s get literary. Team Fortress 2 is the game version of the Picture of Dorian Gray — but in reverse.

The console crowd is still a few months out from getting to try out Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, but an intriguing - and free - alternative is just a week away
