Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 1:22 pm
Like a dream that just won’t stop repeating, Pillow Castle’s peculiar perspective puzzler Superliminal hasn’t quite left my mind since I first saw an early prototype back in 2014. Today, five years later, Superliminal has found its way to store shelves, bringing its fascinating concept to the public. Here’s the deal: however large an object […]

It began with the Sword of the Divine, but now many more items have been changed since the introduction of TFT set 2. A whole host of new items and altered recipes mean that every, single TFT cheat sheet needs an update, in particular, the alterations to many of the Spatula based item combinations.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order won't come early to Origin Access cos spoilers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 9:36 am
Origin Access subscribers will not get to play Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order before launch but will receive cosmetic trinkets instead.

EA claim they’re changing […]


Pupper Park lets you muck around as a dog for 10 minutes
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 9:59 am
Landlords might currently forbid me from owning a pooch of my own, but Sokpop’s Pupper Park lets me become one instead. There’s comfort in that, I think. Put aside the troubling concerns that come with being human. Ditch work, to hell with the groceries. Let’s go chase a ball, harass some toads, irritate the hell […]


Sonic has a new look for his movie, and it's disappointingly familiar
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 7:51 am
The snivelling worms in Hollywood have jettisoned their creative vision for a blue humanoid hedgehog able to run faster than the speed of sound, bowing to public demands that such a monstrosity brought into the human world would look ‘cute’. A new Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer reveals the the makeover promised by the spineless […]

The Elder Scrolls: Total War brings some much-needed spectacle to Tamriel's scuffles
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 8:42 am
Like any big daft fantasy blockbuster, The Elder Scrolls needs war. Unfortunately, Bethesda’s open-world games have never been too great at the whole mass battle thing. Even Skyrim’s nation-rending civil war never amounted to much more than a gathering of drunk LARPers waving sharp sticks at each other in the snow. The Elder Scrolls: Total […]


The Outer Worlds weapons – damage types, special effects, and best weapons revealed
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 5:45 am
The Outer Worlds weapons are pretty darn complex. They may give you a tonne of scope for choice and customisation, but each weapon has many more associated stats than we’re used to seeing in games such as this – and that’s not even taking into account weapon type buffs, damage types, special effects, mods, and […]

The Outer Worlds Armor guide – Armor Rating explained, Light vs Heavy armor

Armor in The Outer Worlds is one of the most important tools the game supplies you in order to stay alive in the treacherous and dangerous regions of Halcyon, Monarch, and all the other planets you’ll hop between throughout your journey.

The Outer Worlds guide – 25 tips and facts that beginners need to know
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 5:53 am
The Outer Worlds may not quite be the largest RPG we’ve ever seen, but it sure does have a great deal of stuff to explore and experiment with, from the first moments (or in my case, half-hour) of character creation to the many different quests, enemy types, combat mechanics, stories, and interconnected systems you’ll encounter […]

Operator has the basis of a good hacker game, if only it made sense
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 7:30 am
I’m still struggling with what, exactly, Humble Originals are meant to be, and I think Humble might be as well. They’re only available through Humble’s monthly subscription service, and the official gubbins says they’re “brand new games” that are “a little risky, a little experimental, and a lot of fun!” In practice, results seem to […]


Tour the weird and wonderful private homes of Final Fantasy XIV
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 4:00 am
Final Fantasy XIV offers a lot to potential players. It’s a polished MMO with great writing, combat, and a seemingly infinite number of crossover events. But you can also ignore all of that and spend your time designing and decorating a home. The Housing System allows you to buy an estate and play a private […]


Red Dead Redemption 2 cheats guide – a full list of all 37 RDR2 cheat codes
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 4:27 am
If you’ve played the original Red Dead Redemption (or, indeed, any of the GTA games), it should come as no surprise whatsoever to you that Red Dead Redemption 2 cheats exist. Rockstar have hidden away clues to their cheat codes inside various newspapers scattered about RDR2’s vast wild world – but seeing as you’re here, […]


Have You Played… Alter Ego?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2019, 2:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. “Life sims” have become a bit of a thing in the million years since Alter Ego was first released in 1986. I first played it about six years ago, and mostly I remember how incredibly judgemental […]


I wouldn't expect a Pillars Of Eternity 3 soon
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 November 2019, 1:08 pm
Sales of Pillars Of Eternity 2: Deadfire were disappointing enough that Obsidian Entertainment would need to “re-examine the entire format of the game” before making a hypothetical third, game director Josh Sawyer has suggested. Writing in response to a fan asking after a third game, Sawyer explained that the sequel sold worse than the original, […]


Blizzard VP Jeff Kaplan wants Blitzchung's ban “reduced more or eliminated”
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 November 2019, 1:14 pm
Slowly, but surely, Blizzard have opened up about penalising Hearthstone pro player Ng Wai “Blitzchung” Chung for a pro-Hong Kong protest during October’s Grand Championship finals. But after a delivering yet another wholly underwhelming public statement, it’s hard to say they’ve handled the situation well. As it happens, that opinion isn’t limited to aggrieved fans. […]

Arriving in the grim heart of December, mere days after the country plunges into a miserable election, I […]


Steam Charts: Schteam Schmarts Edition
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 November 2019, 11:43 am
The results are in! The links between the longevity of Steam Charts and the decreases in violent crime, the improvement of sanitary water supplies, and sudden global drops in serious health issues, are no coincidence at all! To quote from the paper recently published in Nature, “Causal links have been shown connecting Rock Paper Shotgun’s […]
