Botanicula Creepycrawls Out On 19th April

By John Walker on April 4th, 2012.

My face when I played it.

Playing the preview code of Botanicula made me so happy one of my legs fell off. So I’m delighted to report that everyone’s going to have a chance to squeeze off their limbs with excitement on the 19th April, when the full game comes out. To commemorate, a new trailer has appeared, which you can see below. You’ll likely lose a toe.

BioShock Infinite Out Oct 16th US, 19th Internationally

By Craig Pearson on March 1st, 2012.

October 19th! October 19th! October 19th!
In the RPS “When is BioShock Infinite Out?” sweepstakes, Jim Chose Oct 17th, John Oct 18th, Alec Oct 20th, Adam Oct 21st, and I swung in with September 19th 7019. It turns out none of us have particularly well-defined psychic powers, and I was WAY off: mark October 19th down on your calendar as “National BioShock Infinite release day”. That sweet trailer from December is below, to soothe your beating hearts.

Borderlands 2 Promises 96.5% More WUB WUB, Sept 18th

By John Walker on February 22nd, 2012.

This is how to sell games to RPS.

Start getting excited, because Rock, Paper, Shotgun will soon be releasing its trailer to celebrate the announcement of a release date for the reveal date for its next trailer! But in the meantime, why not enjoy the trailer released to announce the launch date for Borderlands 2? Which is the 18th September in the US, then after a long swim the 21st Sept in the UK/EU. Which is aaaaaages away.

Get Some Spec Ops: The Line in June

By Craig Pearson on February 21st, 2012.

Makes a change from staring at a soldier's crotch
Ooh, I’ve come overall military. Let me try that again: “I don’t know what I’ve been told, Spec Ops: The Line is out June 29th”. Ah, military cadence is a wonderful medium for delivering game news. The Dubai set Gears of War-ish shooter that Adam liked but I have concerns about is taking advantage of the sweltering heat of summer and potential beach holidays. Imagine, an entire marketing campaign claiming to have brought about sand and sun. There’s also a multiplayer video that shows off the perks of pre-ordering, below.

Wait For The Drop: The Official Far Cry 3 Trailer Is Here

By Craig Pearson on February 15th, 2012.

WUB WUB!
This is the ‘official’ version of the Far Cry 3 trailer, which is almost exactly the same as the one that leaked earlier on today. I actually felt bad about linking to that one, but we’re all about disclosure here at RPS: whether you’re Ubisoft or John Walker, we’ll get to the heart of the story, no matter what. So, tell us Ubisoft: why did the leaked trailer have a Sept 6 release date when this one says Sept the 7th?

Far Cry 3 Trailer Leaks, Release Date: Sept 6th

By Craig Pearson on February 15th, 2012.

He's pointing where you should click.
This feels dirty: the Far Cry 3 trailer has leaked a day early, a CGI introduction to the lead character’s holiday going stinky. I have just watched it and can confirm there’s bad language, a boat, guns, and a man not shooting someone when he really, really should have. It also confirms the release date as September 6th, and has dubstep. If you want to watch it, the link’s there, although there’s every chance it’ll be pulled by legal ninjas. In that case, there’s a teaser trailer below.

NEARLY FINISHED HIM! Street Fighter X Tekken PC Date

By John Walker on February 15th, 2012.

Well that's not very gentlemanly.

Capcom’s on-again-off-again romance with the PC seems to be firmly set to ON at the moment. Not only is Resident Evil 6 slated for a PC release this November, but Street Fighter X Tekken is set for PC in May. 11th May to be precise. That’s a strange two months later than the console release, but it’s still an interesting release for a platform that isn’t exactly overwhelmed by ‘fighting’ games. We’ve got the five new PC screenshots below.

Ridge Racer Unbounded Fails MOT, Slips To March

By Craig Pearson on February 14th, 2012.

That is one mean looking car.
I don’t own a car, but I presume “The development team felt they needed a little bit of extra time to optimise the game” is the development equivalent of “The spang wheel has upcocked the hurr-durr”, which is what all car-speak sounds like to me. Namco-Bandai’s arcade racing game Ridge Racer’s spang wheel trouble has seen its release date slip out by a month, and it’ll now be road-worthy on March 30th, and not a day before. I know the real reason for the slip. I’ll bet developers Bugbear Interactive forgot to factor in the time it takes for documentarians to record their work, and the tightest musical producers to make electronic noize to go over the top. Can you guess what I have lined up for you?

Gotham City Imposters Imposes On Feb 8th

By Craig Pearson on February 3rd, 2012.

He's the gnome we need.
This is what happens when you get busy. I did not know that Gotham City Imposters, Monolith’s inventive multiplayer FPS where players are copycats of Batman and his various villains, has a defensive gnome that tazers people. Where I was and what I was doing at the time to not know I don’t know, but I now begrudge whatever it was I don’t remember doing. I hopefully won’t begrudge playing the game on February the 8th, and peeping into the beta tactics video below, I don’t think I will.

Ooh! A Max Payne 3 Release Date And Trailer

By Craig Pearson on February 3rd, 2012.

Renowned photographer Johnny Fraps died taking this shot
Max Payne 3: Bullet Gargles finally has a PC release date. I thought I’d be cool and mark the June 1st release on my calendar by shooting at the date, marking the special occasion with a bullet hole, but then I realised it’s out on the 29th of May in North America. I tried to flip the calendar over with another bullet, but things got out of hand. If they want to follow my gunspree release schedule, Rockstar will just have to release it on June 12th, The Corner of My Monitor, My Foot, and Next Door’s Housekeeper. While I bandage up and shop online for a new identity, distract yourselves with the new trailer they released.

Alan Wake PC Gets Release Date, Pretties

By John Walker on February 2nd, 2012.

Your 360 can't even do diagonal lines!

Alan Wake on PC gets a release date. It is the oh my goodness it’s only two weeks away. The 16th Feb. And tis being sensibly priced too, for a two year old game, at $30. Developers Remedy have been putting some proper effort into the PC version. Not only has it been souped up with improved graphics, but it’ll also support multiple monitors and stereoscopic 3D.
