What are we all playing this weekend?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 March 2019, 5:00 am
Now I respect the astronomical calendar as much as the next hippy, but it does feel strange to be celebrating the start of spring when six days ago I was swimming down a baltic river in a snowy forest. I suppose that was technically still winter? It was also only six days ago. I’d better […]


Suda 51 returns to pen Super Fire Pro Wrestling World story DLC
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 6:47 pm
Spike Chunsoft have announced Killer7 director Goichi Suda (aka Suda 51) will be returning to an old haunt to pen new story DLC for wrestleman sim Fire Pro Wrestling World. I’m not normally much for wrestling games, but even I can appreciate this series, formerly by Human Entertainment. Snappy action, powerful character creation and a […]


Mortal Kombat 11 makes it cool to be a Noob
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 5:06 pm
I hold great respect for the Calvinball nonsense that is Mortal Kombat canon. Once a silhouetted joke fighter named after the developers, dark ninja Noob Saibot has grown into an actual character in the new trilogy. NetherRealm have just unveiled his latest incarnation in Mortal Kombat 11, and he looks as delightfully over-the-top as you’d […]


Zero Escape director Uchikoshi gets weird with AI: The Somnium Files in July
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 2:43 pm
Why, yes, that is a polar bear about to saw an anime girl in half, because that’s what happens when Zero Escape director Kotaro Uchikoshi is no longer restrained to the waking world. AI: The Somnium Files is his next game, developed by Spike Chunsoft, and now has a July 26th release date on PC. […]


Out Of The Park Baseball 20 slides home
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 4:11 pm
I made a few vows in remembrance of our former Adam (RPS in peace): I will try to understand grand strategy games; I will sneak one single ciggy after the company AGM; I will post about the release of new baseball games. Such as Out Of The Park Baseball 20, the latest in the management […]


The Dark Zone of The Division 2 is a tense ghost town other looter-shooters can’t beat
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 12:20 pm
The Italian men are shouting at me. I don’t understand what they’re yelling, but it’s clear from the rifles pointed at my torso that this is not a friendly chat. They’re upset. I’ve upset them. The Division 2 is a solid shoot ‘n’ loot, as I said in our review. Yes it has a few […]


Star Wars: Battlefront 2 revives Battlefield 2142’s best mode next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 12:56 pm
Dice and EA have given a name and official rule-set to Star Wars: Battlefront 2‘s upcoming new mode. Capital Supremacy is due to roll out as a free update next Tuesday, March 26th and looks similar to the excellent Titan mode from the defunct Battlefield 2142. Large teams of mixed humans and bots work to hold points […]


Even before Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 was fully released on March 15th, Ubisoft released a detailed Year 1 roadmap of everything we agents should expect to arrive in the first year of updates and DLC. It’s an ambitious range of new features, missions, specializations, and game modes that we have to look forward to, […]


Error codes and crashes are the bane of many an agent’s existence in The Division 2, with these glum grey and orange errors sporadically appearing and barring players from entering Washington D.C. and mowing down enemy factions. But fear not, for our The Division 2 error code guide will walk you through each error code […]


Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice PC graphics performance: How to get the best settings
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 1:00 pm
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has finally snuck onto PC. The latest game from Souls makers From Software, this gory slice-’em-up sees you tread softly softly in the silent shoes of The Wolf, a master shinobi with the curious ability to resurrect himself upon death, as you battle the humongous foes of feudal Japan. The big […]


Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Chained Ogre boss guide – how to defeat the first boss
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 1:12 pm
With all the named opponents in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, it can be tricky to work out which ones are dedicated bosses. The Chained Ogre is your first real test of your Shinobi prowess, though if you know how to do so, this fight can easily be cheesed. Read on if you’re struggling with this […]


Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice guide – beginners tips and tricks
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 1:12 pm
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is finally here, and even though it’s a huge departure from the Souls series, it’s still got plenty of complicated stuff and hard bosses that you may wish to know about. We’re of course happy to oblige, even if it’s just an excuse to play a highly anticipated game. So strap […]


Do vu no? Denuvo making Anti-Cheat
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 1:33 pm
Denuvo, the folks behind the much-maligned DRM-strengthening software Denuvo Anti-Tamper, intend to block more shenanigans. On Wednesday they announced Denuvo Anti-Cheat, a new doodad for developers to tie into their games to bust cheats. They say it partially uses machine learning to detect cheaty behaviour–a trick used by others, including by Valve in Counter-Strike: Global […]


It has been two months since I set off to reach the centre of the galaxy. I’m happy to report that I made it. For those not following my adventures, I’m part of the Distant Worlds 2 expedition, a ragtag group of Elite Dangerous explorers who have set out to cross the galaxy and construct […]


PUBG guns/weapons [Update #27]: weapon stats, PUBG best guns, MP5K stats
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 8:05 am
Update #27 of PUBG has arrived, bringing with it a host of new features to the Test Server, including a new weapon: the 9mm MP5K sub-machine gun, exclusive to PUBG’s Vikendi map. As we tested out this new weapon and got to grips with all the new weapon balance changes that this update introduced, we […]


The Flare Path: Beside the Zeeside
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 9:00 am
On behalf of Flare Path Sky Tours I’d like to welcome you aboard this Aerofly FS2 Learjet 45 and apologise for the out-of-the-way departure airport. Personally, I wanted to fly from Antwerp International or Ostend, but First Officer Roman has been reluctant to enter Belgium since leaving it in a hurry in 2003 so today’s ramble […]


The Foxer

To fully defox the following enlargeable geofoxer, identify all twelve locations plus the theme that links them.


Best PC gaming deals of the week – 22nd March 2019
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 9:20 am
As the UK continues to slide further into the unending abyss, let’s take comfort with some of the good things that happened this week, which of course includes the best PC gaming deals. I mean, who would have thought we’d see the announcement of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 this fine morning? Or have […]


XCOM 2 is free this weekend (and DLC discounts a-go-go too)
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 6:11 am
Standard-issue XCOM 2 is probably my least-favourite of the four different flavours of XCOM now available to us (i.e. including the Enemy Within and War Of The Chosen expansions), but that’s a bit like saying I don’t enjoy 29 degrees of heat quite as much as 26, 27 and 28 degrees. They’re all great! Make […]


Have You Played… The Painscreek Killings?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 March 2019, 3:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I’m super into murder mysteries and wandering around falsely idyllic towns, so The Painscreek Killings really spoke to me. There are red phone boxes but dollar signs, yet something about it still feels so quintessentially British. […]


Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is happening! It’s real!
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 11:30 pm
Imagine, dear reader, my delight upon learning that Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, a game about which I have said “…but it’ll never happen” several times, is, in fact, happening. More than that, I have seen, hands off, the first half an hour of it and have spoken to senior writer Cara Ellison (late […]


Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sneakily launches in the dead of night
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 7:50 pm
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is out now (at least in the UK) almost a full day earlier than expected – fitting that FromSoftware’s ninja soulsborne would stage a daring night-time infiltration. Earlier this evening, I checked Steam, and it stated there was another twenty hours until the game unlocked. Now, I’ve just had my first […]


The Wind becomes a promo game from the maker of Faith
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 7:12 pm
Talk about promo games normally make me think of high profile stuff like Carmen Sandiego invading Google Earth, so I’ve got to tip a weather-beaten stetson to IFC films for going low-fi with The Wind. They’ve tapped Airdorf, solo dev behind the Faith series of bible-quoting exorcise ’em ups to produce a short browser horror […]


We. The Revolution faces the court of public opinion today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 4:06 pm
French revolutionary judge sim We. The Revolution (a clunky capitalisation I shall not use often, sorry devs Polyslash) is out now, sneaking up on me quiet as a guillotine blade. It’s vaguely similar to Papers, Please, in that it’s a game about being a political cog in a complex machine. Less similarly, this is about being […]


Roccat Kone Pure Owl-Eye review: Small yet mighty
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 March 2019, 2:00 pm
Roccat may be about to be subsumed into the peripherals giant that is Turtle Beach, but for the time being their own gaming accessories are still very much alive and well, including their Kone Pure Owl-Eye gaming mouse, seen here in its recently refreshed white edition. I must say, this little tiddler is quite the […]
