He’s On A Boat: Assassin’s Creed III Footage

By John Walker on June 5th, 2012.

Scenes at RPS's Jubilee party, yesterday.

Assassin’s Creed III done released a big pile of video last night, along with four new screenshots. There’s a silly CGI trailer that helps no one, but also a great big chunk of in-game footage that shows off the sneaky, jumpy, stabby and animal-hurty ways of a far more rural Assassin, and then some of the ship combat. Click on the pics for bigger versions, and see the trailers below.

Fract Got Pretty: Light + Sound = Win

By John Walker on May 15th, 2012.

I'm waiting for a puzzle game driven by grammar.

Since we last caught up with it, the extraordinary-looking (and sounding) Fract OSC has released a bundle of new screenshots, and they’re a bit pretty. Described as Myst meets Rez meets Tron, a first-person puzzle adventure in an abstract world, designed around electronic music. The game, they say, is inspired by synthesisers, in a world that “literally runs on sound”. Previous footage has been remarkably interesting, but arguably not that pretty. However, that’s beginning to change, thanks to some new atmospheric art, and some extremely effective lighting. Take a look.

ARMA III Announces New Island, Incredible New Video

By John Walker on April 19th, 2012.

Flipping. Crikey.

Arma III has announced a new island for the game, Stratis, adding another 19 square km to its already huge expanse. And with that comes a new video and six new screenshots of brain-hurting graphics, that will make you scream “BUT THAT MUST BE REAL-WORLD VIDEO!” and then fall down. You can do that below.

Waving A Flag For Turn-Based Combat: The Banner Saga

By John Walker on February 29th, 2012.

The only type of strategy I like! Grids!

The ex-BioWare bods, Stoic, with their offices in a goat shed have released a trailer for the intriguing The Banner Saga. Revealing the traditional animation style, as well as the ye-olde-school grid-based turn-based combat, along with RPG-like dialogue options, it gives you an idea of the tone being aimed at, if not how it will feel to play. We’ve also got some rather lovely screenshots that we’ll even let you look at. If you’re good.

Just your typical action hero game character.

Time to get your grisled look on. The first ever screenshots of the PC version of Max Payne have appeared. They number three, and Rockstar boasts the PC version will feature,

See them below.

Don’t Be Oreful: BlackSpace

By John Walker on February 22nd, 2012.

Oh, indies, don't blot out your pictures with your logos you sillies.

Today’s the day for indie projects from former major-developers. After Banner comes BlackSpace from PixelFoundry Games, a group of devs who’d previously been together at EA Sports Tiburon. And it’s exclusively for the PC. Good. There’s more details, four pictures of rocks, and a (lifeless) teaser trailer for it below.

Quantum Conundrum Shows Off Its Fluff

By John Walker on February 15th, 2012.

This is how my wife would have our house if left unsupervised.

Beyond a couple of videos of creator Kim Swift playing Quantum Conundrum, details have been pretty quiet about the game from Airtight Games. Today we’ve received a load of fluff. Aha! A joke about PR. A bunch of new, extremely pink screenshots are below, along with some information about the fluffy dimension of the game.

Combat Wings: Great Battles Of WWII Is Pretty

By John Walker on February 15th, 2012.

RATATATATATATATATTTAAAAT!

Shine the Tim Stone light onto the clouds! (It’s the shape of a tank with wings.) The sequel to 2009′s Combat Wings: Battle Of Britain, this time expanding to Combat Wings: The Great Battles Of World War II (maybe it’s just me, but I didn’t think the battles were that great) has a fancy new trailer, and ten completely gorgeous screenshots. It’s out in March, and it appeals to my eyes.

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.

Ultro-Huge Psychonauts Screenshot Gallery – Part One

By John Walker on February 14th, 2012.

This is the game that every game should be.

With all the recent brouhaha over Tim Schafer, from his raising $1.75m in four days, to the suggestion that Notch might fund a Psychonauts sequel, it was unavoidable that I’d replay Psychonauts. The astonishing game is in my all-time top 10, and makes me want to hug the planet and have them see. When I’m done with the play through I’ll not be able to stop myself writing about it, but at this convenient midpoint I thought I’d pause to share the joy with you in the form of 38 screenshots. I implore you to buy Psychonauts. If you’ve never played it, it’s so much more than you could be expecting. It’s on Steam for £6 and Good Old Games for $10. Just look.

Now I Want To Play Theory Interactive’s Reset

By John Walker on February 9th, 2012.

Don't be sad, robot, look at the pretty flowers.

I love the phrase “single-player co-op”. That’s because I’m a misanthrope, and other people ruin everything. But it’s how Reset describes itself, as spotted by IGM. In fact, it’s a single-player co-op first-person puzzle game, exclusive to PC. That’s the genre I was waiting for! And by crikey, it sounds fascinating.

In Your Face: New Warface Shots At Last

By John Walker on January 26th, 2012.

Shiny colours!

Blimey, it’s been a while since we saw anything of Warface. The last time we posted about Crytek’s free-to-play online shooter was in December 2010 when they released some footage. In fact, it’s been so long that some sites have only just noticed it exists. What has instead happened is Crytek have added three new screenshots to their site, although goodness knows when, and as you might imagine, they look very pretty.

Death, Cut Your Fingernails: Darksiders II

By John Walker on January 26th, 2012.

You're bound to hurt someone with those.

I’m so tired this morning that if horseman Death came charged toward me, I’d limply reach out a hand to touch his scythe and embrace the sweet, sweet sleep that awaits. But fortunately he’s fictional, and I’ll wake up soon. He is, however, to feature in Darksiders II, and if you needed more proof than my word, there are screenshots of said game below. They’re new, and they’ve got big, cross monsters in them.
