How Enter the Gungeon brought bullet hell to the dungeon-crawler
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 4:00 pm
This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to discuss the inner workings of their games. This time, Enter the Gungeon [official site]. Enter the Gungeon’s conception was an idle conversation about what shape a game called Enter the Gungeon would take. And here’s what it led to: 1. It’s a dungeon-crawler in which […]

Racing game fans, I'm about to break your heart a little


Skyblivion is looking a lot like Oblivion rebuilt in Skyrim
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 12:42 pm
As another year ends, it’s time to reflect on all that’s been done and all that’s still to come. So they tell me, anyway; I try to drink away any concept of the past or future. But bless ’em, the gang remaking The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion have worked hard and are proud of their […]


Wot I Think: Dead Rising 4
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 1:00 pm
Dead Rising – that being the third-person action game where you murder a million zombies in a shopping mall – has always had an identity crisis. It’s like a guy who writes Christmas cracker jokes for a living then runs dog fights in the evenings. A game about dressing up in stupid clothes and bopping […]

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 1:54 pm
Five executives from Ubisoft accused of insider trading have been fined a total of €1.2 million by French regulators, including the CEO of Ubisoft Montreal, Yannis Mallat, whose individual fine is €700,000. The company has said it will appeal the decision and continues to support the executives, saying that the regulator does not understand how […]


Warhammer’s Wood Elves are experimental and tricksy
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 2:00 pm
One of my favourite bits of British folklore is the concept of the Elfshot. There’s a theory that Anglo-Saxons believed invisible Elves shot people with arrows, and that these attacks were the source of various maladies. Imagine it: a wee creature that just hangs around, waiting to give you arthritis or a weird rash at […]


Star Wars 8 rumor says Snoke appears on-set as a massive, intricate puppet
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 12:51 pm
Supreme Leader Snoke appeared only as a huge CGI hologram in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but a new rumor indicates that he'll have a more physical presence in Star Wars 8


Normally I'd put some introductory text before a trailer, but not this time

At the beginning of every year, the RPS crew begin work on a team-building crafting project, which we recreate wonders of our world: 2016 was the year of the matchstick Blackpool Tower. Welcome to day nine of The RPS Advent Calendar, which highlights our favourite games of the year, daily. Behind today’s door is… The […]


Gigantic! Gigantic! Gigantic! Open beta hits Windows 10
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 12:01 pm
You keep your Pokélads; I want a bigger monsterpal. I’ve had my eye on Gigantic [official site] for a while, fancying 5v5 third-person action where each team is supported by a honking great monster, and I’ll be having a go this weekend thanks to the open beta that’s now live. Our monsterdad can beat up […]


Meet Logan's Zander Rice, mad scientist and creator of Wolverine clone, X-23
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 12:15 pm
It's not just old age and a mutant-hating mercenary nipping at Hugh Jackman's heels in the upcoming Logan - there's also a mad scientist to contend with


Counter-Strike: GO’s Crimbo chickens are nice and cosy
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 9:50 am
We can all agree that the Christmas season doesn’t begin just because John Lewis tries to punch you in the heart or because Ian Starbucks cracks open the syrups again. That’s crass commercialism denigrating the season where people buy me presents. No, the only corporation I trust managing Christmas is Valve Corporation, who each year […]


Have You Played… Duskers?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 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. I tend not to like games with obtuse interfaces, even those which have chosen those interfaces for deliberate affect. Duskers is that rare exception. You use a command line-stlye interface to control a […]

Win Outcast Season 1 on Blu-ray
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 10:41 am
How do you top The Walking Dead? Tricky… but Robert Kirkman, creator of the original comic, has had a jolly good stab at it with his latest horror series Outcast, which this year followed his zombie saga’s path from the printed page to the small screen

Super Mario Run needs an internet connection to play, because piracy
Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 11:15 am
Well, here's one thing you probably won't see in any ads for the upcoming Super Mario Run for iOS: it requires an always-on internet connection to play

The man currently sipping a Koskenkorva and consulting his cue cards in the U/S Williams X-Jet The Flare Path uses as a dais is Ilja ‘Zipuli’ Varha. Our second ‘atypical simmer‘, Ilja has very kindly agreed to talk about his journey from juvenile M1 Tank Platoon fan to 33-year-old brigade simulator officer in the Finnish Defence Forces. […]


Best PC gaming deals of the week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 9:00 am
This week has already flown past, in a blur of Christmas music and busy shops. The closer we get to Christmas, though, the more acceptable it is to gorge on chocolate and mince pies, so there’s always a silver lining. Whatever you’re planning to do with the upcoming “holiday season”, we’ve got another week’s worth […]


Batman V Superman director Zack Snyder is a huge Star Wars fan (I mean, who isn't?)


Vive Studios is HTC’s new in-house VR dev studio
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 7:15 am
As folks continue to feel out what virtual reality can do and what works well in it, I’m interested to see what the hardware companies themselves want on their cybergoggles. Oculus have already been funding and publishing cybergames for years and now HTC have launched Vive Studios. It’s a new internal studio to develop their […]


OneShot is bursting with nice ideas, and out now
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2016, 7:18 am
Steam, you may have noticed, is a little bit broken. One of its multifarious idiosyncrasies is to include games that absolutely have not been released in its full list of released games. Every now and then I’ll spot a game that looks worth a peek, go to install it, and find it doesn’t even have […]


By now, you’ve probably seen the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer (watch it below if you’ve somehow missed it) and have tried to pick apart every possible Easter Egg and each detail of Spidey’s costume, right down to the stitching
