Guardians Of The Rose Is Zelda Meets The Elder Scrolls
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 June 2016, 2:00 pm
Guardians of the Rose [official site] is a skill-based action RPG that plants you in the shoes of a guild master out to achieve world peace. Alongside customisable stats, skills and gear, you have the power to recruit any NPC, any enemy and “even a few” of the game’s bosses in your quest for unity, […]


Have You Played… Worms?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 June 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. Worms feels like a joke now: by my count there have been 23 games in the main series, and that’s not including the Facebook version or pinball and mini golf-themed spinoffs. It feels […]


Dynasty Warriors Spin-Off Berserk’s Trailer Gets Gibby
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 June 2016, 12:00 pm
How do you like your claymore-wielding, lone-fighting, cape-sporting dark fantasy renegades served? If it’s with a penchant for murder, a desire to slice scores of forest-dwelling monsters in half, and a want to spill as much blood as is single-handedly possible, then Berserk has you covered. In case you missed the E3 reveal (you didn’t, […]


Fatigue Demo Echoes Old School Isometric Horror
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 June 2016, 5:00 am
Tearing a blood-stained page from the likes of I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream, Sanitarium and The Black Mirror, Fatigue [Itch page] is a throwback to the classic third-person detective-cum-horror games of yesteryear that I grew up positively shitting myself in front of. Diving into the latter’s free pre-alpha demo, I was not […]


Ship Builder The Last Leviathan Docks At Early Access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 June 2016, 3:00 pm
Let’s be clear: the above header image is a stock photo and is not my own ship-crafting handiwork. You see, Super Punk Games’ The Last Leviathan [official site] bills itself as a “physics-based ship building and destruction adventure” and it seems I very much forgot to consider the former. I spent the best part of […]


Nuclear Throne Mod Adds Online Co-op
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 June 2016, 1:00 pm
Online co-op multiplayer has arrived in Nuclear Throne [official site], Vlambeer’s John-pleasing rougelikelike shooter, thanks to an unofficial new mod. YellowAfterlife’s Nuclear Throne Together mod cleverly adds online multiplayer completely with Steam invitations and lobby lists, which is awfully impressive considering Vlambeer never shared source code – this is reverse-engineered. Now you and a pal […]


Have You Played… Building Your Own PC?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 June 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. OK it’s not a game, but I make the rules here, dammit. If you haven’t ever built your own gaming PC, you’re selling yourself short. … [visit site to read more]


Titanosaurus Wreck: Ark Update Adds Dino & New Biome
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 June 2016, 9:00 am
Studio Wildcard describe the latest dino to breech the shores of Ark: Survival Evolved‘s [official site] fantastical technoisland as “extremely rare.” Which is just as well, I reckon, because, well, have you seen the size of the blighter? The Titanosaur enters the multiplayer survival ‘em up courtesy of its v243 update, which also extends the […]


Happy 10th Anniversary, MmoQuests

June 25th, 2006 marked the first post I ever made here on MmoQuests. 10 years has gone by since then. Ten. Years. So much has changed, and yet, not that much has changed. I...


Free Loaders: Stop Bullets With The Power Of Prayer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 June 2016, 7:00 am
Gun crime is sky-rocketing in the United States and just last week the elected representatives of the country voted to keep as many bullets from unemployment as possible. And while that sentence may be a rabid simplification of a greater issue, we all know what’s fundamentally at fault here – we are just not praying […]

The Guild 3 Has Many Tiny Cyberpeople Judging You
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2016, 5:45 pm
“It’s not a great game but it’s one of those games that I always hope will spawn a great sequel,” our Adam said when he asked Have You Played… The Guild 2? That day may be coming, as The Guild 3 [official site] is coming. It’ll bring more economic strategy fun with a side of […]


Oculus Removes DRM Blocking Rift Games On Vive
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2016, 4:01 pm
In April the cyberworld rejoiced when cybergoggle enthusiasts created a tool to like HTC Vive cybernauts play games made for Oculus Rift. In May, er, Oculus responded by adding a DRM headset check that stopped software working if it wasn’t on a Rift, despite Oculord Palmer Luckey previously saying sunny things like “our goal is […]

When Sonic and Eggman take to Twitter for fan Q&A, the results are hilarious

It's well-known by now how absurd and self-referential the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account can be


Strafe Is A Loving Reinterpretation Of Nineties FPS Games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2016, 2:00 pm
Devolver had a great E3. I’ve already written about Absolver, which was an unexpected delight, but there’s more to tell. Let’s sidestep into the world of Strafe [official site], a game which was unlikely to surprise me, having been a known quantity for a good while. It’s a first-person shooter with a retro feel and […]


Fingers Crossed! Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Rated
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2016, 2:17 pm
Up is down, red is green, and I don’t know what to make of this world where Bandai Namco are again releasing Pac-Man games actually want to play. Well, mostly. But Pac-Man Championship Edition is ridiculous and wonderful and colourful, Pac-Man 256 has its fans, and ooh! looks like Patrick Mann may be returning with […]


A new Professor Layton game is apparently in the works at studio Level-5, and the developer plans to reveal a slew of details on July 27 at Level-5 Vision 2016


Location, Location, Location: A Subnautica Volcano Base
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2016, 12:28 pm
A fair few people said they wanted a little tour of my Subnautica [official site] Volcano Base so I’ve made a quick video to show it off – especially the garden which is packed with bioluminescent plantlife! … [visit site to read more]


Um, There’s A New, Official Quake 1 Episode Out
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2016, 12:33 pm
Depending on to what extent you accept ‘Bethesda’ as official, of course. This isn’t id’s work, and it’s definitely not Quake-era id’s work, but it is the work of neo-id’s stablemates Machine Games – they of the improbably good Wolfenstein: The New Order. (And who, according to its credits, pitched in to some extent with […]


Until Dawn 2 isn't coming anytime soon - would you want it if it was?

Remember the woman at the end of the new Mass Effect: Andromeda video who seems relieved and genuinely surprised that her spaceship didn't blow up? She's the new protagonist, according to BioWare Edmonton general manager Aaryn Flynn


Tadpole Treble: An Underwater Rhythm Scroller
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 2016, 10:29 am
Something I just picked up in the Steam sale was Tadpole Treble [official site]. It’s an early access cartoonish side scroller where you negotiate a track in the form of a musical stave. I found it just by idly entering frog-related search terms into Steam the other day and so far it’s been delightful. … […]


Have You Played… Photobomb?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 June 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. In the wake of a bombing in a crowded public place, can you pull together tracking data and photos from social media to figure out who planted it? Can you execute a suspect […]
