Car-To-Ball: Rocket League

By Alice O'Connor on December 3rd, 2014.

Take that, technosphere!

If we were to draw up a list of Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s collective interests, rocketcars and pretending we don’t understand football would both rank highly. So:

Nyooooooooom! ScreeeeeeCH! Crunkash! Those are the sounds of Rocket League, a game where teams of rocketcars chase each other around a field inside a stadium, trying to shunt a technosphere into a repository. What a horrible creation this technosphere must be, that drivers smash it with such force and fury. What terrors might be unleashed should it… hatch? Cool your jets and form an orderly line to follow me for a trailer, if you will. Krrrruntpow!

By All Means, Watch This Hour Of Nosgoth Footage

By Craig Pearson on February 10th, 2014.


For those of you who forgot to jack into the “What the hell is Nosgoth?” assimilation pod, here’s a text-based recap: it’s an upcoming free-to-play online shooter set in the Legacy of Kain universe, which suddenly seems like a terrifying look into gaming’s future. It’s currently in closed alpha, but they’ve peeled back the curtains just enough to allow others a glimpse into what I can only describe as a third-person online action game between people and vampires.

Free-To-Play Legacy Of Kain, Thy Name Is Nosgoth

After the fifth time I heard it spoken in this trailer, I got the the giggles and had to rewatch to get the details. I’m almost embarrassed that I can be so easily amused, but it is a silly word. That second pass gleamed the relevant information, and I watched a third-time to make sure I hadn’t been hearing things the second time: Psyonix has been secretly developing a free-to-play PVP multiplayer action game set in the Legacy Of Kain universe. Human teams will fight Vampires teams. Guh?

Alpha Squadron: A.R.C. Squadron

By Jim Rossignol on March 24th, 2011.

Flying! Shooting! Together at last!
Here at charming British website Rock, Paper, Shotgun we’re inappropriately fond of both flying/shooting type games and Avatar-style floating islands. So it is with warm pleasure that I note the alpha launch of UDK-powered A.R.C. Squadron. It’s an airborne combat game that looks rather like my fever dreams. See the video below for a taste of that. You can download the client over here. Let’s do that and shoot each other. It’s about 300mb. The server is online at 70.166.15.133
