As we slide further into the new year, Fortnite’s Season 8 is sailing ever closer, set to arrive in the next few weeks. So it’s about time we take a proper look at the deluge of theories and info on what to expect in this new season. Our Fortnite Season 8 guide is simply saturated with […]


Fortnite guide (v7.20) – Season 7 tips, challenges, weapons, locations, building
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 12:41 pm
Fortnite has been a masterclass in exceeding expectations in many ways, not least because of its deceptively high skill ceiling. This beast of a Battle Royale not only has a great deal of weapons and locations with which to familiarise yourself, but also a whole host of systems such as building and editing, the Storm, […]


Metro Exodus shows off its arsenal
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 1:08 pm
A new (and relatively lengthy) Metro Exodus trailer showcases the many weapons and customisations that will be available when the game launches, next month. The trailer (which you can watch below) details the many gun classes that will be available as well as some of the customisation options that will tailor each weapon to your […]


The Hong Kong Massacre gracefully dives into stores
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 1:45 pm
If Max Payne and Hotline Miami got into a horrible teleporter accident, the result would probably look a lot like The Hong Kong Massacre. Released today, five years after RPS first covered it, it looks like a blend of Miami’s frantic twitch shooting with Payne’s slow-motion evasion plus a dash of John Woo’s penchant for […]


Cultist Simulator summons New Game+ mode today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 2:00 pm
If you’ve survived dark forces and fancy a greater challenge than wrangling a cult to uncover and master the terrible secrets at the heart of the world (easy peasy tbh), Cultist Simulator has your back. The eldritch… survival RPG (?) today adds a New Game+ mode in a free update, letting us continue our tale […]


5 of the best Slay The Spire character mods
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 2:00 pm
“With more planned.” For months, that’s all we’ve had to go on, when it comes to the nagging question of whether or not the wonderful Slay The Spire will ever stretch beyond its three playable characters. Third character The Defect’s relatively new, and the focus is currently on spit’n’polish for this week’s escape from early […]


Loiter endlessly in an airport in Brownie Cove Cancelled
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 2:26 pm
Today on the segment we call Things That Are Kinda Unpleasant Because That’s The Point Okay we have Brownie Cove Cancelled, a wee first-person wanderer about waiting in an airport for a flight that keeps getting further delayed. At first it’s nice to have time to potter around, to grab a snack and check out […]


Wot I Think: Resident Evil 2
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 11:00 am
Developer: Capcom Publisher: Capcom Release: January 25th, 2019 On: Windows From: Steam Price: £45, $60, €60 Certain moments in Resident Evil 2 are imbued with a specific kind of awful. Moments when calculated slaughter gets drowned under a tide of undead flesh, all thought of eradication consumed by escape. There’s this deep, prolonged pull of […]


Anthem’s free demo is literally days away now, and EA have recently put up the system requirements for the full game, so we thought we’d update this roundup of everything we have so that you can prepare your PC in advance. Below you will find all the information about the schedule for both the VIP demo […]


Fortnite now lets you dress up as a Sneaky Snowman
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 11:28 am
Fortnite‘s v7.20 content update is now live and adds a frosty-themed item to the battle royale, allowing you to sneak up on unsuspecting players by donning a rather innocuous looking snowman outfit. And what an ace way to blend in following the explosion of the ice orb that was hovering above the Polar Peaks, this […]


Demon’s Tilt flips into early access today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 11:57 am
Pinball’s pretty simple, right? Left flipper, right flipper, ritual magic and demons crawling all over the table. Playing Demon’s Tilt is a mesmerising exercise in filtering order out of chaos and trying to parse what exactly is going on across its single (but large) three-tiered table. Entering early access today and developed by Adam “Wiznwar” […]


Premature Evaluation: Atlas
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 12:00 pm

Samsung 970 Evo Plus review: Better in every way?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 10:00 am
The Samsung 970 Evo has been my best gaming SSD recommendation under £200 for quite some time now. By far the fastest and best value for money NVMe SSD you can buy right now, it’s comfortably seen off competition from the new WD Black SN750, the old WD Black and Adata’s XPG SX6000 Pro. But […]


Yakuza Kiwami will also cost £15 on PC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 10:00 am
Gaming’s best dad, Tokyo mobster Kazuma Kiryu, will return to PC in Yakuza Kiwami in less than one month, and Sega have now confirmed that it’ll cost the same as Yakuza 0: a paltry £15. Today’s formal announcement of the February 19th release date follows yesterday’s not-so-subtle tease, and brings word of the open-world brawl-o-RPG’s […]


Webtoy of the day: build your own silly-named spaceships
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 7:00 am
Your desktop box of infinite delights today is this insta-spaceship builder, part of the ShapeWright project, a web page into which you may insert any name/vile oath of your choice and be blessed with a one-of-a-kind starship in response. While there’s obvious delight in trying to etablish whether The Ainsley Harriot somehow resembles the joyful […]


Disjunction is like a stealthier, cyberpunkier Hotline Miami
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 7:14 am
I like a good sneak and bop. Especially when that sneaking is cyberpunk-flavoured, and people shout at me if my bopping turns to killing. Disjunction is an upcoming “cyberpunk stealth action RPG” where precisely that happened in its free alpha demo. I was lured in by the trailer below, which asks “what if Hotline Miami […]

Fortnite challenges: Week 7 challenges, Battle Pass challenges, Snowfall challenges,
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 5:41 am
Fortnite’s seventh season has more challenges coming in the coming week, but there’s not a lot longer left to complete all the previous challenges. On top of that, we’ve also had challenges appear to coincide with the Ice Storm event now going on. So in order to grab all the emotes, costumes, and everything else […]


Have You Played… Mortal Kombat X?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2019, 2:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. With the Mortal Kombat 11 lurking around the corner, there’s no better time than to look back at the previous game: Mortal Kombat X. It came just a few years after the rebooted timeline shook the series […]


Synthetik: Arena is a free condensed take on an intense roguelike shooter
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 January 2019, 5:55 pm
Narrowly missing my games-of-the-year shortlist, Synthetik: Legion Rising was one of my more pleasant surprises of 2018. A sci-fi roguelike shooter with an unusual focus on semi-realistic weapon handling. A bit like Nuclear Throne by way of Vanquish, it’s loud, fast, hard and great in co-op. Now you can try it free, as developers FlowFire […]


Yakuza Kiwami teased for a February 19th PC release
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 January 2019, 5:02 pm
The adventures of the nicest gangster that ever lived and his eyepatched life partner continue soon, if Sega’s teasing on the Yakuza Kiwami page on Steam is any indication. Continuing Sega’s habit of teasing things in weird, creative ways, the Kiwami store page now contains an animated GIF of Goro Majima emerging from his well […]


Strange Telephone puzzlingly dials up PCs today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 January 2019, 3:13 pm
Fans of the weird, dream-like puzzling of Yume Nikki should feel right at home with Strange Telephone. It’s a quiet little point-and-click adventure about a woman – Jill – exploring weird, abstract dream-realms through dialling them up on her levitating telephone pal Graham. Explore, collect items, solve problems and slowly work your way towards an […]


Keeping track of the vast array of guns in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is one of the largest contributors to the game’s steep learning curve. PUBG features nearly forty guns to choose from, each with specific stats relating to damage, range, recoil, bullet drop, and much more – and that’s not even considering the enormous range of […]


Catch up on Dragon Age: Origins, now fan-patched with fewer bugs
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 January 2019, 12:39 pm
There’s a new Dragon Age on the way, according to the moody teaser shown during December’s Game Awards. Forgot where you left off? Best start catching up with Dragon Age: Origins then, with the rather lovely Qwinn’s Ultimate DAO Fixpack mod.
