Have You Played… Hacknet?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 3:37 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Many years ago, when I traipsed the streets of Belfast city with the menacing incisors of a 15-year-old who did not get braces when he should have done so, I often met with a pal and […]


Ace Combat 7 now supports a few more flight sticks
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 May 2019, 5:10 am
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown features a veteran fighter pilot whose full name is Mihaly Dumitru Margareta Corneliu Leopold Blanca Karol Aeon Ignatius Raphael Maria Niketas A. Shilage. That’s fabulous. It’s also got plenty of smashing dogfight action. But you know what it doesn’t have? Support for most flight sticks. That’s disappointing. However, there are […]


Overwatch celebrates three years with old brawls, new looks and a free trial
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 5:35 pm
Overwatch has now been kicking around the multiplayer shooter scene for three years, although it feels like longer, thanks to the game’s constant barrage of seasonal updates and events. Blizzard are kicking off their anniversary celebrations with a trial week, so anyone still on the fence can try the game free here, and newcomers will […]


Beat Saber bops out of early access
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 7:01 pm
Beat Saber‘s $100 Bills is an obnoxious song that I cannot remove from my brain. It’s the musical equivalent of a bloke sidling up to you in a pub and asking if you want to see his armpits. Fortunately, Beat Saber has other songs, and makes slicing beats so satisfying that sometimes I don’t even […]


The Longest Journey looks great for its age with new texture mod
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 3:51 pm
Even two decades after its release, The Longest Journey hasn’t lost its hold on players’ imaginations. Except now, satisfying that nostalgia fix doesn’t have to mean stomaching those 1999 graphics thanks to a high-res makeover mod released last week.


Path Of Exile: Legion invites players to beat up all of NotValhalla
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 5:00 pm
The Domain Of Timeless Conflict, centrepiece of Path Of Exile‘s upcoming free Legion update, isn’t quite the mead-swilling viking afterlife, but it’s close enough to be worth invading and looting. It’ll hit Grinding Gear Games’s free-to-play action RPG on June 7th and replaces the current (and controversial) Synthesis league. Legion adds a new quarterly source […]


Origin offering The Sims 4 for the low price of free
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 5:24 pm
Since its launch in 2014, The Sims 4 has received a steady diet of add-ons and updates, making it one of EA’s longest-lasting games. Now there’s no excuse not to check out what all the fuss is about because you can get the base game for free on Origin for the next week.


Atelier Lulua: The Scion Of Arland revives a 10-year-old crafting RPG series
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 1:52 pm
Even as a fan of RPGs myself, the Atelier Arland series and I have been like two ships passing in the night. Starcrossed by both my limited schedule and the role-playing genre’s requirement that I sacrifice the equivalent of a small child’s lifetime to complete any one game. And that’s just with a single playthrough. […]


American Fugitive raises a ruckus on PC today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 1:55 pm
When American Fugitive was announced – a game about escaping from jail, staying one step ahead of the cops and avenging your dad’s death – I didn’t expect it to be as big a tribute to Grand Theft Auto as we’ve got at launch today, despite obvious similarities. Still, those looking for something more in […]


Ritual Of The Moon diary: day 18
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 2:00 pm
Ritual Of The Moon takes around five minutes a day to play, for 28 days. Today is day 18 of my diary. Alright, yesterday was depressing and made some of you sad (buddy, if you think reproductive healthcare bums you out, imagine how some of the rest of us feel!). But today I’m actually feeling […]


Cities: Skylines enrols Campus expansion
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 3:00 pm
Laid-back city-builder Cities: Skylines today enters the period of supreme slack with the addition of universities in its latest expansion. ‘Campus’ is its name, and building campuses is its game. You too can establish fine educational establishments for students to doss about, build sports arenas for them to shout in, and shape your city’s policies […]


In case you’re running low on good feels, this news packs a healthy dose: In the last week, two players got their dying wishes answered thanks to the help of Reddit. In one of those too-rare instances of the internet being a pretty ok place, users rallied and now a 26-year-old cancer patient will get […]


AMD Navi GPUs could be revealed as early as next week
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 11:51 am
Well, so much for waiting until June for the reveal of AMD’s Navi GPUs at their big E3 event, as the latest rumours suggest we could see two Navi GPUs announce themselves to the world in less than a week – mostly likely when AMD take to the stage at this year’s big Computex tech […]


Corsair M65 RGB Elite review: Taking the weight off
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 1:00 pm
Finding a good gaming mouse can sometimes feel like you’re stuck in the story of Goldilocks. You don’t want one that’s too heavy, nor do you want one that’s too light. Instead, you want one that feels just right under your palm. Or you could just buy a weighted one such as Corsair’s new M65 […]


Valve on Assassin's Creed, Notre Dame and “positive” review bombing
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 1:04 pm
When Valve implemented Steam’s anti-review-bombing policy in March – manual exclusion of “off topic” review clusters from a game’s overall score – they’d not given much thought to what a ‘positive’ review bomb could look like. Just one month later, Notre Dame cathedral goes up in holy smoke and Ubisoft bring in a flood of […]


Mordhau patch notes & future content – official duel mode, modding tools, new maps
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 10:50 am
If, like me, you’ve been having a tremendously good time with Mordhau since its release just the other week, then you’ll no doubt be interested in all the upcoming content and new features that developers Triternion have promised are on their to-do list. Our Mordhau patch notes and future content guide will not only run […]


Mordhau archery guide – Longbow, Recurve Bow, Crossbow tips and techniques
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 10:51 am
Archery in Mordhau is a bit of a polarizing topic. At times a skilled Longbowman laying waste to their enemy from afar can be just about the most frustrating thing imaginable. Other times, you might go what feels like 5 whole minutes without ever landing a shot – except on your own teammates. If you’re […]


Totem Teller looks even better in motion
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 11:17 am
Last time we fawned over the dithered and glitchy world of Totem Teller, we hadn’t even seen it moving. Reader dear, this morning I saw it in motion and must resume our fawning. I still don’t know what this “game about storytelling and discovery” is but I have now cracked my monitor by trying to […]


Team Sonic Racing power-slides into stores today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 11:32 am
If we ignore the wonky Sonic R, then Sonic The Hedgehog has had a pretty good track record as far as mascot kart-racers go. Team Sonic Racing is out today and the latest from Sumo Digital, formerly of the excellent Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. This time, they’ve narrowed their focus a bit, swapping transforming […]


Epic Games Store blocking shoppers from buying too many games
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 9:48 am
If you’re tempted by the discounts Epic Games are reportedly themselves paying for in their Store’s first big sale, be aware that it might stop you from buying many games. Some users are reporting their accounts have been blocked from further purchases until they contact support because they, uh, tried to buy lots of games […]


Wot I Think: Observation
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 10:00 am
Developer: No Code Publisher: Devolver Digital Release: May 21st On: Windows From: Epic Games Store For: £20/$25 I can’t think of another game that has so quickly made me care so much. I’m staring at Emma Fisher, adrift in zero gravity after (another) unknown calamity has buckled our space station and briefly disabled my camera […]


Wot I Think – Thea 2: The Shattering
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 8:00 am
Developer: MuHa Games Publisher: MuHa Games Release: Out now On: Windows From: Steam GOG For: £20/$25/€22 God does not play dice with the universe, I once read on a Mini Milk stick, but Thea 2’s pantheon of Slavic-inspired deities seem well up for a game of cards. You don’t play as a mortal in this […]


Have You Played… Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 May 2019, 4:18 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I love flying my tiny, insanely twisted shadow ship in Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. Regardless of whether you like the rest of this 2D Metroidvania-y exploration game, the one thing you cannot fault is the feel […]


The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr ventures into early access today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 May 2019, 6:13 pm
The latest Elder Scrolls Online expansion, Elsweyr, isn’t officially out until June 4th, but Bethesda are letting PC players brave the cat-and-dragon infested jungle expansion two weeks early, starting today, to discover any bugs before the console folks arrive. On top of the usual new places to see and dungeons to delve, Elsweyr gives players […]


Lords Of The Fallen 2 drops new devs Defiant Studios
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 May 2019, 4:58 pm
Despite the first game being a bit rubbish, publisher City Interactive Games are insistent on making Lords Of The Fallen 2 a thing. They’ve also booted recently-hired developers Defiant Studios from it just one year into production. As reported (and translated from Polish) by Eurogamer, the publisher announced via a press release that their partnership […]
