Ninja Theory are coming out swinging this year.

Delay season has hit the big games of this year pretty hard. Several large releases have been pushed back from their early 2020 estimates to several months down the line.

Get your gloves and toques because eternal winter hasn’t started yet but you can be assured it’s coming. The post-snowpocalypse strategy game Frostpunk is all about keeping civilization lukewarm in the end times but its new campaign DLC is set before the big freeze actually happens.

Hades this week launched The Long Winter Update, bringing more blessings and boons to help poor Zagreus escape the underworld.

Being petty jerks in Six Ages actually makes you the most powerful clan ever
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2020, 12:00 pm
I’m usually nice. Six Ages is about leading a village in a roughly bronze age fantasy world, in which culture is of paramount importance. Morality and belief and social expectations are complex and compared to those of our own society, very odd. What we’d call the right thing isn’t always the same thing that Riders, […]

With the open beta for Legends of Runeterra looming around the corner, it’s best to have an idea of which cards you need to construct the the best decks. Keep in mind that they’re only one piece of the puzzle, after all, card games are also an exercise in good timing and mind games, but […]


Playerunknown's Battlegrounds added new map Karakin, and rotated out Vikendi
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2020, 9:50 am
The travel company behind Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds today added a new stag weekend destination, the roasting North African island of Karakin. The new map is the smallest so far, only 2x2km but still cramming in 64 players. It’s hazardous too, because its new ‘Black Zone’ bombings can outright destroy buildings and the new sticky bomb weapon […]


Let me introduce you to the best item in The Sims 4 Tiny Living pack
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2020, 10:00 am
You may have noticed, because of all the Simsposting lately, that I am well into The Sims 4 now. Brace yourself, because it is not going away soon. Anyway, like someone who has only just got into something but is into it hard, I am talking the talk even if I don’t yet walk the […]


Hyperspace: Pirates Of Atira is like Sea Of Thieves meets FTL
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2020, 8:00 am
Hyperspace: Pirates Of Atira is a co-op space ship sim in which players manually operate different parts of the ship, physically running about its interior as needed. An Alpha version was released last week, and though it may be early days, the promise of space piracy overlapping with petty office arguments was too much for […]

The whole Half-Life story is free to play on Steam right now
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2020, 6:31 am
It has come to my attention that some people have not played the Half-Life games, to which I can only say: mate, I think you might really like it.

Nate took some of RPS on a delightful romp around Red Dead Redemption 2, and is sharing it with you this week in three different videos. He is calling this short series Rowdy Partner. This is part two. Smash cut to: the vile, spluttering face of the Cowboy, who is drowning in a swamp. As […]


Have You Played… Lego Island?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2020, 4:00 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I’m not sure if me playing Lego Island really happened or if it was a fever dream. Even watching back videos of the game, I still can’t believe it was a thing. Let alone a thing […]

Have you played… Medal of Honor: Rising Sun?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2020, 2:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Really, what I wanted to talk about was Medal of Honor: Allied Assault – one of the very greatest first-person shooters ever made, and my first ever introduction into the world of competitive online FPS games.

The Samsung T7 Touch is the latest member of Samsung’s portable SSD family. Like the Samsung T5 before it, this titchy drive has a lovely, sleek aluminium chassis that’s roughly the same size as a couple of stacked credit cards. Only now it has a fancy fingerprint reader for extra security and supports the nippier […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 January 2020, 9:00 am
It’s been a bit of a whirlwind week leading up today’s launch of AMD’s Radeon RX 5600 XT.
