Bunny brawler Overgrowth adds Lugaru’s campaign
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 3:46 pm
The kung fu rabbits of Overgrowth [official site] have been around in a playable form since I was a small and ancient protozoa, so I won’t accept the game’s sudden switch from “alpha” to “beta” as news. But I will take notice when told that the story campaign of its predecessor, Lugaru, has been adapted […]

How historical games integrate or ignore slavery
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 4:00 pm
Video games always come with an expectation that the player will suspend disbelief to some extent. Genetically engineered super-soldier clones don’t exist, radiation has never and will never work like that, and overweight Italian plumbers could never make that jump. In most cases, if we are unwilling or unable to suspend our disbelief, we may […]

Little Nightmares gets a release date and a creepy af trailer
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 4:31 pm
Little Nightmares from Tarsier Studios (makers of LittleBigPlanet on PS Vita) has been on our *ahem* radar for some time now, impressing us with its Tim Burton-esque visuals

I think we all had a feeling of shock and surprise when the trailer for Super Mario Odyssey showed the cartoon plumber entering the real world-- well, if you count "New Donk City" as the real world anyway

Atlas Reactor goes free-to-play, adds new character
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 2:00 pm
“If Frozen Synapse and Battlerite had a baby, it would bear an uncanny resemblance to Atlas Reactor,” said Matt Cox, which reminds me that I’m grossly failing in my duties as his self-appointed moral guardian. I should have given that young lad the ‘copulation’ talk years ago. But if you’re interested in tactical team combat […]

The Repopulation is about to get repopulated
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 2:30 pm
Have I ever told you about The Repopulation? *you shake your head, gently, afraid*  The Repopulation [official site] was a science fiction MMO that always smiled. Back in the halcyon days of 2013 it was even considered handsome, rugged, intriguing. It appealed to all those searching for a new Star Wars Galaxies, along with offering […]

Super Mario Odyssey’s PC port is grittier than expected
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 2:43 pm
Nintendo’s new console, the Swapsie, isn’t even out but word has already leaked of a PC port for flagship game Super Mario Odyssey. A new cut of Odyssey’s trailer shows the PC version, which naturally boasts higher-fidelity graphics and — goodness me! — Nintendo have embraced the ‘mature’ nature of PC gaming. When toonman Mario […]

Wot I Think: Ladykiller In A Bind
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 3:00 pm
Content warning: this review discusses a rape scene. Sex in games is a (t)horny issue. Games are predominantly made for and marketed at men, and thus most games that attempt to cause a panic in your battlestations are normally pointing their hormone missiles at your throbbing periscope and not the, uh, hang on, there aren’t […]

Gabe Newell is infamous for being a bit of a recluse, often appearing in public only to make the briefest of statements and avoid that question

Fans of '90s comics and classic JRPGs alike have a big new reason to go to the PC Gamer Weekender: THQ Nordic has confirmed that its pre-release playable lineup will include Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Pleased to meet BOO! Little Nightmares out April 28th
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 12:39 pm
What I dig so much about Little Nightmares [official site] is that the nightmares aren’t little – you are. Vast hands emerge from the shadows on snaking arms. Clammy chefs bloated like drowned corpses reach for you cowering under tables. A sea of shoes. The world of Tarsier Studios’ puzzle-platformer looks dreadful in the most […]

Wot I Think: Mysterium
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 1:00 pm
Mysterium [official site] is one of my favourite board games. It’s somewhere between Dixit and Cluedo in that you’re a psychic trying to find a murder’s culprit, location and weapon but the only clues you have to go on are these wonderfully illustrated cards given to you by the “ghost” player which form your psychic […]

Where many fighting games insert a token story experience, it looks like Injustice 2 dev NetherRealm is going all out

Crafted with love: Jotun devs’ Sundered on Kickstarter

Sundered [official site], the Lovecraft-tinged Metroidvaniä! Iä! from the folks behind Jotun, will launch in July. That’s the news from developers Thunder Lotus who have, in the meantime, launched a Kickstarter to fund making Sundered all shiny and polished in these final few months. If you fancy delving into procedurally-generated dungeons to rumble with many-mawed […]

Have You Played… RetroArch?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Hey, you know all those old console cartridges you have all the originals of and painstakingly took ROM backups up yourself? Turns out there’s a way to use ’em. Who knew? … [visit […]

Tangiers is still coming, still looks fantastic
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 8:33 am
The makers of Tangiers have shared a little look at recent additions to their surreal first-person stealth sim with notes of Ballard and Burroughs, and I’m as delighted as ever to see more of it. I’m less delighted to hear of the personal upsets that stalled its development because, y’know, I’m not a monster. Who […]

Kratos will keep his Greek heritage close with his son named Atreus in the new God of War

Get cricked on: Don Bradman Cricket 17 released
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 6:16 am
I will be very excited to see a futuresport game which does for cricket what Rocket League did to… football? Hockey? I want cricket with robots and/or cars, basically. 100 Foot Robot Cricket. Crocket League. That sort of thing. In the meantime, we’ll have to settle for regular vidcricket. Don Bradman Cricket 17 [official site] […]

Steam Charts: Normal Parameters
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2017, 7:27 am
Cor blimey, it’s only the weekly Steam Charts! As always, these are based on the accumulated sales on Steam over the previous week, not what’s doing best for itself at this exact moment in time. A nice number one this week, but a rather old-fashioned top ten otherwise – with one unexpected aberration. N.B. there […]
