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.

Carrier Command Release Date-Ish, Plus Pics

By Craig Pearson on January 25th, 2012.

Load the release cannon and fire vaguely in that direction!

Hello! I bring good news. The release date aiming cone for Bohemia Interactive’s sci-fi action strategy game Carrier Command: Gaea Mission has narrowed. The bad news is it’s only as specific as Q2 2012. Now I’ve been doing this job since 2000, and not once have I ever looked up what release date quarters mean. This chart did not help. So instead of explaining it further, I’ll have to distract you with some new screenshots of the game below.

Paradox Announces A Game Of Dwarves

By John Walker on January 19th, 2012.

Yup, that's a dwarf alright.

In a one-two punch of Paradox news, our man in the field, Jim Rossignol, has sent a telegram from Sweden reporting that the publishers have announced A Game Of Dwarves. STOP. It’s a strategy-cum-management game, by Zeal Game Studios, in which you must control a dwarven settlement. It has a Theme Hospital meets Dungeon Keeper vibe about it, with a sprinkling of Settlers, and of course a lot of Dwarf Fortress, as you manage your crew of dwarves to dig, build and defend themselves. It’s going to be randomly generated, meaning each time you start a new game it’ll be a completely unique dungeon, requiring new strategies. We’ll have more information just as soon as Jim can find the internet. The game is supposed to be coming out at some point during 2012. You can see a collection of screenshots below.

Obscured: Total War Shogun 2 Expandalone

By John Walker on January 17th, 2012.

I think there's a game in there somewhere.

Videogames can expand now? Whatever is going on? And they can do it alone? I shall call this… EXPANDALONE! (You know, the last time I went on about how utterly brilliant that word is, the guy who coined it got in touch. He is my hero.) Shogun 2: Total 2 War Shogun is doing this some more, with the addition of Fall Of The Samurai: Total Shogun: War, and as further proof they’ve released a new video of non-game footage, and some shots: screen, which are by far the most ludicrously watermarked images I have seen in over a decade of doing this nonsense.

Be Bad: Dead Island’s Ryder White DLC

By John Walker on January 17th, 2012.

Well, videogames don't look very nice, do they?

It’s a frequent lament that we rarely get to play bad guys in an interesting way. There’s another hope on the horizon, with the rather good Dead Island announcing some new major DLC. Ryder White is a whole new angle on the game’s story, where you play as the titular character – the game’s main baddie. Which is a splendid idea, if it’s done right. It’s a new single-player campaign, where you’ll apparently get to understand White’s motivations for his actions, as well as see him as a loving husband and military man. Techland say it’ll be “several hours” long, and add in a couple more weapons. We’ve some screenshots of it below.

Mass Effect 3 Has Fat Monsters: PROOF

By John Walker on January 4th, 2012.

The sillybilly, he's gone and put his bones on the outside.

Anyone who’s not looking forward to the conclusion of the Mass Effect trilogy is an idiot. That’s the official word given via the parliamentary press secretary for David Cameron, speaking to a field of bees this morning. And if you needed any more proof, there are five new screenshots of the game out today, each emblazoned by BioWare’s ludicrously pointless logos, and one of them showing a big fat alien monster. Like you can resist clicking onward.

Rock Of Ages Develops Christmas Cheer

By John Walker on December 20th, 2011.

Aw!

Father Christmas is a very lazy man. He works one day a year, and spends the rest of his time just sitting there, judging children. What a prick. His elves are the real heroes, and are woefully undersung. For instance, they’re zooming around everywhere, adding Christmas cheer wherever they can. Even reaching the obscurity of ACE Team’s Rock Of Ages. Now featuring snowballs. You can see some lovely pics of that below.

King Arthur II: The Screenshots Of Snore

By John Walker on December 19th, 2011.

Erm, way to show us some inspecific gloom!

As the Winter months draw in, and RPS finds it has to light the fire all day long just to thaw our toes, gaming news starts to dry up a little. But fortunately there are three incredibly crap new screenshots of King Arthur II! So what can I possibly have to complain about, eh? You can see them below, along with some actual news about the game.

Massive Botanicula Screenshot Gallery

By John Walker on December 6th, 2011.

Just look at them fullsize, for goodness sakes.
When pestering Amanita for our preview of Botanicula, they also sent over a collection of new hi-res screenshots for the game. And they are far too beautiful not to pass onto you. So below they are, clickonable for growth. Do so, because their reduced forms don’t do them justice. I apologise for the forthcoming angst over which ones should be your desktop backgrounds.

Bigging It Up: Wargame European Escalation

By John Walker on December 5th, 2011.

WAR GOES BANG!

R.U.S.E. creators Eugen Systems are nudging closer to releasing their next war-themed RTS, the rather literally named Wargame: European Escalation. It’s due in the first fourth of next year, and it features tanks and bangs and splodes. It’s also rather pleasing on the eye, as is evidenced below with the collecting of five new screenshots. Stare at them at will.

Thor Feelings: SMITE Screenshots

By John Walker on November 16th, 2011.

Any excuse to shout I SMITE THEE is welcomed.

There’s a new screenshot of SMITE. What’s SMITE, you ask? You’re so forgetful. It’s Hi-Rez’s Thor-themed DOTA-inspired hyphen-inciting free-to-play multiplayer that we mentioned back in April. Why are we posting when there’s only one bloody screenshot in the last three months, when you’d think a developer proud of its game would release hundreds to make sure we can all see how great they think it is? Because this one pic is rather pretty, and I like pretty things. Oh, and I’ve put in the other seven pics they’ve released so far this year below.

Another Game Of Game Of Thrones: Screens

By John Walker on November 10th, 2011.

I'm sorry, I'm in HOW many games?

How’s your Game Of Thrones game coming along? Everyone’s making one at the moment. Mine’s doing nicely – it’s a sort of driving game/match-3 hybrid, set north of the Wall. It should be ready some time in 2013. Game Of Thrones: Genesis is already out (and a bit poop), and then there’s the somewhat trademark infringing Khan Wars: Game Of Thrones, which just happens to show up on Google searches for the licensed versions. Anyhowever, the news is that Cynanide’s other GoT game, the RPG, has a North American publisher in the form of Atlus, and with that have come some more details and a couple of screens.

(Oh good grief, as I’m writing this, we find there’s to be a Game Of Thrones MMO from Bigpoint, and a Game Of Thrones social networking game too, hideously described as “FarmVille comes to Westeros.”)

Thin On Top: Four New Max Payne 3 Shots

By John Walker on November 3rd, 2011.

Pictures are like the ultimate slo-mo.
New shots of Max Payne 3 are always a welcome sight. Not due until March next year, we’re obviously still a way off from actually seeing anything useful, so clearly dripping out the odd picture here an there is the usual tedious PR game we all have to put up with for some reason. Still, by February we’ll be sick of the sight of it, so let’s make the most of still feeling that frisson of early excitement? I don’t know. I’m confused about what to be cross about. I’ll just be cross about everything.
