Observer coming August 15th, starring Rutger Hauer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 6:29 am
First-person cyberpunk thrill-o-horror Observer [official site] will launch on August 15th, developers Bloober Team have announced. After trapping us in a painter’s kooky spookhouse with Layers of Fear, this time Bloober are blasting us off into the grim future where everything sucks. It stars a cyberdetective jacking into suspects’ heads, and Bloober have now confirmed […]


American Truck Simulator closing Highway 1 due to real-world landslide
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 7:18 am
I like American Truck Simulator [official site] because it’s a dreamland version of the USA, one which looks a bit like the country does in movies but is quite separate from reality. This will soon change. Developers SCS Software have announced that ATS’s next update will soon close a section of its virtual Highway 1, […]


Rogue Trooper Redux blasts out on October 17th
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 10:09 am
Rebellion today announced that Rogue Trooper Redux [official site], the fancied-up re-release of their perfectly good 7/10 cover shooter, will launch on October 17th. The original still runs on modern system — and looks pretty good at a 1800p resolution — but sure, it’ll be nice to see the game spruced up a little. Accompanying […]


Have You Played… Reading The Manual On The Way Home From The Shop?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. In this digital age, there are probably hundreds of people who’ve never experienced the joy of sitting on public transport with a boxed game in their lap. I lament for those people and strongly advise them […]


Doomfist punches into Overwatch proper next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 11:49 am
After several weeks beating the bag on the Overwatch test servers, new character Doomfist is almost ready to start pounding faces properly. The villain will arrive next Thursday, July 27th, Blizzard announced this week. If you prefer not to tamper with test servers and unfinished bits, you might want to meet Doomfist in this here […]


What’s that faint light? It’s the glare of the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, crashing through the atmosphere of the internet like an unstoppable comet capable of both massive destruction and enlightened conversation. This week, we’ve all been playing transhumanist adventure game Sun Dogs, which sees us romping through the solar system, necking drinks […]


Destroy all monsters! Gigantic released
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 12:54 pm
Gigantic, the free-to-play multiplayer brawl-o-shooter where each team has the support of a honking great monster, has left early access and launched in full. It offers class-based 5v5 fisticuffs, and did I mention the big monsters? Matches climax with the two bigguns scrapping, see, each team trying to help their megafriend out. It’s a bit […]


Strike Vector back with an EX, becomes mechdaddy
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 1:45 pm
Look at this rusty old mechplane. Strike Vector, is it? It’s three years old, get it out of here! We have a shiny new one landing on the pad right now. An updated version of the super-speedy multiplayer dogfighter has just touched down, and it’s bringing a singleplayer campaign, skirmish mode, bots and some other […]


Wot I Think: Yonder – The Cloud Catcher Chronicles
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 2:00 pm
Ignore the silly name, Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles [official site] is pretty special. A combat-free, risk-free game of exploration and meandering, farming and cat-gathering, questing and lazily fishing. Here’s wot I think:


Behold the Kickmen [official site], the arcade game about football, known in some parts of the world as British Football, has been released this day. It’s by Dan Marshall and Size Five Games, makers of The Swindle. Dan started working on the ball-kicker as part of a game jam but was whisked away by the […]


Behold The Kickmen can’t escape the problems of football games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 3:30 pm
Behold The Kickmen [official site] is an almost-football sportsball game: there’s a ball and two teams trying to get it in each other’s goal via tackling, sprinting, passing and kicking. It’s only almost-football though because it has been designed by someone with a wilfull ignorance of football’s details, and who dislikes the sport but did […]


Why Nvidia is overcharging us all off, just a bit
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 4:00 pm
As I was saying, Intel’s CPU strategy has gone into meltdown. As a consequence, the cynicism of its approach in the face of weak competition – right up until AMD pulled its new Ryzen out of the proverbial – has been laid bare. But it’s not just Chipzilla that’s worthy of your scorn. For some […]

Communal Combat Mission: Turn 6
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 4:30 am
Every year The Flare Path runs a communal Combat Mission skirmish in which RPS readers attempt to outwit and outfight CM’s decidedly dangerous AI. Turns span 60 seconds and rarely go according to plan. Late-war and Eastern Front, this year’s scrap takes place in a German-held Baltic port. Five turns after leaving their deployment zone, […]


All DOOM multiplayer DLC is now free
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2017, 5:19 am
There’s plenty of gloom to go around, even at the best of times, but can we ever have enough DOOM [official site] in our lives? Well, this weekend there will be DOOM for all as last year’s unexpectedly brill reboot is free on Steam from 6pm UK time (1pm EST) today. You can play the […]

Fine free-to-play action-RPG Path of Exile will launch its next expansion on August 4th, developers Grinding Gear Games announced last night. The expansion, named The Fall of Oriath [official site], will introduce a new act sending players back to the land they were exiled from. Time for some frank conversations with the ruling powers, I’m […]
