New Pics For The Old Republic

By John Walker on October 27th, 2011.

I hate it when I get that nagging feeling that these are in fact older screenshots and there's been a mistake.

Well here’s a special thing – seven new Star Wars: The Old Republic screenshots that are a) mostly not rubbish, and b) not ruined by a giant and pointless BioWare logo! What better way to start the day? (Um, cuddles and pie, maybe?)

It Just Means ‘Horizon’: New Skyrim Pics

By John Walker on October 20th, 2011.

Do you know where I can find the bathroom?

You’ll have seen some of these before in our recent Skyrim articles, but only all small and not in such a way that you could print them out and put them on a t-shirt. So here are the ten most recent Skyrim shots, which, like a penis, will get bigger if you click on them.

Counter-Strike GO: Gun Game Mode, Screens

By John Walker on September 22nd, 2011.

The bad man done a murder.

Valve are a canny bunch. They know that remaking Counter-Strike is sure to be met by cries of “THIS PIXEL IS ONE NANOMETRE TOO FAR TO THE LEFT!” So it makes good sense for them to look at the best mods that have created the largest audiences, and work them into the new version of the game. So it is that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will feature an “Arsenal Mode”, based on the CS: Source mod, Gun Game. Oh, and we have nine brand new images of the game.

PC’s Batman Arkham City Slips To November

By John Walker on September 20th, 2011.

This is impressive. The slip is not.

Sigh, the disease is spreading. Batman: Arkham City on PC, formerly set to be released alongside the consoles, has been pushed back a month. The 360 and PS3 versions of Warner’s game are still coming out on the 21st October, but our version has been given the ambiguous and extremely unhelpful date of “November”. Absolutely no reason is given, so we’ve contacted Warner to find out what’s up.

Meanwhile, four new colourful screenshots don’t exactly make us feel much better about it. They’re below.

Cities XL 2012 Is Surprisingly Pretty

By John Walker on September 20th, 2011.

Like Bath on a bad day.

Four new screenshots of Cities XL 2012 have been released, and if I can be brutally honest with you – I can, can’t I? – that didn’t excite me very much. The Cities XL games are clearly very good at what they do, but I feel like I was exhausted of city management long ago. And then I looked at the pictures. Blimey, this isn’t Sim City 2000 any more, is it? They’re worth a look.

Guild Wars 2 Wants To Show You The Asura

By John Walker on September 15th, 2011.

It's all far too Phantasy Star Blah blah blah to me.

New video footage and photographs from the Guild Wars 2 tourist board have arrived. This time it’s details on the creepy Asura race. I don’t trust those little goblin things. You could say I’m an… Asuracist! Gosh, I’m funny. Take a look at the new footage, and some new screenshots, below.

Wizard: LOTRO Rise Of Isengard Shots & Info

By John Walker on September 14th, 2011.

Coo, that's rather pretty.

Lord of the Rings Online: Rise of Isengard is out at the end of this month – the 27th to be dangerously precise – and that means anyone who was on the beta can talk about it. Except I wasn’t, as I have this full time job. However, it does mean a bunch of new details have been revealed, along with some new screenshots revealing new gear and weapons. As ever we bring you the most helpful coverage, below.

On A Boat: Deus Ex DLC Screens & Trailer

By John Walker on September 8th, 2011.

He's leaking.

The order in which information arrives is very confusing. Everyone heard about Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s The Missing Link DLC earlier this week, and today Square have officially announced it. But that means we also get pictures and a video. I’ve augmented the post with the details below. Do you see? I said “augmented the post”. Because in Deus Ex you augment yourself with augments, and so in saying “augmented the post” I’m applying that theme to a piece of writing about the game. It’s a bit of wordplay.

Max Payne 3 Out March 2012 With Multiplayer

By Adam Smith on September 8th, 2011.

Bald and (possibly) bearded
Bearded and/or bald bodyguard/cop simulation Max Payne 3 has a release date of March 2012. I suppose that’s a release month rather than date. But the month isn’t the exciting part; the exciting part is that the release date is for both consoleboxes and PC. Hurrah! This is Rockstar, remember, so they might have kept us waiting until 2018. There will also be a multiplayer mode, more details of which below, and there are two new screenshots to look at. It’s a veritable trenchcoat pocket full of details!

A Date For A Game Of A Game Of Thrones

By John Walker on September 7th, 2011.

I'm not going to chop you. I'm going to chat for 390 hours about my pet dog.

Cyanide’s A Game Of Thrones: Genesis finally has a release date. The RTS set in George R. R. R. R. R. Martin’s grumpy world will be with us this very month, on the 29th. Being a strategy game, clearly I’d have to receive an odd number of bumps to the head to play it, but were I to I would insist on only ever making honourable decisions, no matter how frequently this led to my entire family getting enslaved and murdered and everyone’s heads getting chopped off. Because Boromir says that’s how it should be. Which interestingly is almost something the game offers. You can see some new screenshots below, too.

Dishonored Shots Are… Mixed In Quality

By John Walker on August 24th, 2011.

Farr farr far farrrr farr farrrrr. Hoff hoff.

Some new shots of Dishonored have appeared. Now that I’ve finished Deus Ex, and thus can no longer anticipate it, I’ve officially decided that Dishonored is going to replace it. Officially. It just looks like it’s going to be everything I want from a PC game. So if it’s not, Arkane are going to find a disproportionate amount of poo in their sock drawers. Meanwhile, five new screenshots have been released. Of which two are good, one is okay, and two are so terrible that if I’d had the cheek to submit them to any editor for a magazine I’d have been hanged in public.

A Nice Cup Of Tea: Fallen City Screenshots

By John Walker on August 17th, 2011.

The characters are all based on Jim's real facial expressions.

There’s some game called Fallen City. It looks SHIT/AMAZING. It’s by some idiot/genius called Jim Rossignol and so on and so on. Indeed, what is a Rock, Paper, Shotgun to do when one of its own accidentally plops out a game? Should we not cover it out of modesty and propriety? Should we aim to be “objective”, as if that’s a thing? Should we overly promote it at a cost to informing our readers about other games we haven’t made? Yes. We should do all three. But today instead I’m going to show off some of the screenshots from Big Robot’s lovely urban-renewal-em-up, a Channel 4 game that’s inspired by the Broken Windows theory.

Gamescom: Six New Mass Effect 3 Shots

By John Walker on August 16th, 2011.

I like this one best.

Gamescom has produced six new screenshots of Mass Effect 3. Want to see them? Do you? I bet you do! Well… go on then. Being from BioWare there’s a bloody stupid logo obscuring half the picture on all of them. BioWare? Grow up. No one’s going to pretend it’s from their game. (Until Limbo Of The Lost 2, I suppose). And extremely disappointingly, despite the announcement of the official FemShep, ManShep continues to appear.
