Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 4:00 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, Total War: Warhammer’s Mortal Empires campaign [official site]. Mortal Empires is the logical conclusion of Total War: Warhammer. It asks this: what happens if all the races, factions, legendary […]


When Pokemon Go first launched, some players were dismayed to find out that several Pokemon were exclusive to real-world regions, meaning anyone who couldn't afford international travel had barely any hope of catching 'em all

Tip: Clarifying High Sec Cosmic Anomalies vs Cosmic Signatures
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 4:15 pm
Many capsuleers indicate they experience some difficulty keeping track of the differences between the various types of K-Space combat sites, particularly when they are looking at a transition from from a steady diet of “the same” to


Tekken 7 is a brutal but brilliant intro to fighting games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 12:00 pm
Against my better judgement, I have continued my battle to become a competent brawler in daft fighting game Tekken 7. In the realm of biffing games, Tekken is an angry, side-stepping maniac who likes to play dress-up before battering its victims into a pulpy mess. I like it very much. Last night, I accumulated eleven […]


Kick doors with friends in Door Kickers: Action Squad
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 12:35 pm
Door Kickers is a tense, precise tactics game that turns SWAT team interventions into real-time-with-pause puzzles. But what if it was more like Broforce? That’s Door Kickers: Action Squad — infiltrate buildings as part of a SWAT team, and then make everything explode. It’s on Steam early access now.

For Honor needs more than new warriors to stay alive
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 2:00 pm
There goes my head again. Rolling along the ground like a wet turnip. The ahistorical three-sided war of For Honor has always been a tough battleground. During a recent free weekend, it became a conflict not only between Vikings, Samurai and Knights, but between practiced veterans and absolute newcomers. I’m somewhere in between. A mediocre […]


What Other Pains will WoW Classic Bring?
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 1:15 pm
Over at Massively OP Syp published a Perfect Ten column about the perils of getting what you ask for in the form of WoW Classic. The list he came up with is almost charming in its scope, featuring things some people have been literally clamoring for in a

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 10:25 am
The sale event to end all sale events is here. That’s right, folks, Black Friday 2017 is upon us, and this year’s sales frenzy is set to be bigger than ever as we head into the Christmas shopping period. In all honesty, they should just rename it Black November, as you’ll find deals happening literally RIGHT NOW in […]

Rainbow Six Siege’s third year will introduce 8 operators and a co-op event
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 11:58 am
Slick tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege will soon enter its third year, and that means updates. New maps and a “map makeover” were announced by Ubisoft Montreal at the Pro League Finals in Brazil at the weekend, plus two new operators specialising in “biohazard situations”.

'Dota 2' and 'League of Legends' players might be smarter than you
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 11:42 am

People who play multiplayer online battle arenas (MOBA) like Dota 2 and League of Legends perform better on problem solving and logic tests than those who play shooters Destiny and Battlefield 3, researchers found. "The specific MOBA genre is remarkable in the sense that it already engages a vast number of players across the globe, but more generally, complex, socially-interactive and intellectually demanding video games are now ubiquitous and generate a constant stream of performance data that can be normalized against millions of other players," a team from the University of York in the UK concludes.

Fortnite: Battle Royale’s rocket riding is here to stay
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 8:51 am
Fortnite: Battle Royale’s latest update adds a new gun, the silenced SMG, some weapon rebalancing, and a plan is being worked on to deal with naughty team killers, but that’s all incredibly boring. I’m a lot more interested in rocket rides.


Plunkbat tournament ends in a desperate standoff
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 8:56 am
Over the weekend, 20 teams duked it out at IEM Oakland Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds Invitational, fighting over cash and bragging rights. Most games were won by different teams, and places two to five were hotly contested, but by the end there was a clear winner with a sizeable lead. If you don’t want the tournament spoiled, […]


Gunhead pits a pirate against derelict ships full of drones
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 10:19 am
There’s no reason having a gun for a head would stop someone from becoming a concert pianist or a specialist on Assyrian antiquities, but let’s face it, they’re far more likely to be a space pirate, raiding floating tombs and shooting everything in sight. That’s certainly the case with Gunhead, an open-world FPS due out […]

RimWorld’s beta adds swamp biomes and ‘story combat’
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 6:31 am
RimWorld has left its awkward alpha stage, blossoming into a beta with update 18. It’s called A World of Story, but the update really dabbles in everything, from crazy weather to orbital super weapons. Hitting beta also means that it’s in the final stretch, says developer Tynan Sylvester, and there won’t be any “major” new […]


Steam Charts: Clean Underwear Edition
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 6:39 am
Imagine what would happen if Plunkbat weren’t to be at number 1? Could anyone even cope any more? Has all of gaming started operating on this as a foundation, forgetting that it could, one day, not sell more copies than everything else? What if I’m writing this as a bluff because it’s not at number […]


Turtle Beach Recon 150 review: A no-frills gaming headset for just £40
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 November 2017, 7:00 am
As my quest for a comfy pair of headphones continues, today I’m looking at one of Turtle Beach’s entry-level headsets, the Recon 150. Available for just £40, the Recon 150 is about as straightforward as gaming headsets come. Unburdened by fancy surround sound features or active noise-cancelling technology, this is very much a plug in and […]
