Mountain of Joy

Avez-vous joué la démo de Montjoie? You should. It's tres bon. Tchounga Games, a fledgling French studio, have taken a relatively obscure Hundred Years War board game and turned it into the kind of light, lively historical TBS that weary wargamers like moi adore. The catch is the demo isn't available in English yet. To maximise your chances of conquering 15th Century France you're going…

Marvel Dies, Wolfenstein Lives

Well, hello. I've just gone six days without the internet. Cursed steam-age parents. Remind me to never, ever leave my house again. Clearly, I've a lot of news to catch up on, once I've finished staring in fascinated horror at some of the angry reader comments on the Eurogamer Top 50 Games of 2007 feature, which all four of us RPSites contributed to enthusiastically. My…

Advent Calender: The Followers

You were almost certainly one of the almost-infinite hordes who gathered around the universes' internet connections to discover whether or not RPS were going to devour chocolate today. If so, after the endeavor was over, you may have been left wondering why certain games didn't make the cut. Here's where. Why did we ignore Supreme Commander? Why wasn't a game about slapping quite enough? Do…

Paintball 2.0

Need a completely free game? (And delightfully, free as in speech, as well as in beer, published under the GPL). How about Paintball 2.0? Using a modified Quake 2 engine (but not needing Quake 2), what it exchanges in graphics it makes up for in speed. And although simple, there's some really nice level design here. As you'll have guessed, it's a multiplayer paintball game.…

X Motor Racing Demo

I've just been having a look at the demo of X Motor Racing, an indie racing game that prides itself on its realistic car physics and damage modeling. As if to prove that the physics are realistic you can even press the '3' key to bring up a physics overlay, which explains the stresses and forces on each of the tires, as well as adding…

Girls Who Gank Boys

Mediamark Research & Intelligence, a sinister-sounding consumer survey group, has concluded from its 26,000 person survey sample that just under 80% of American children aged 6-11 play games online on a regular basis. The percentage of boys and girls who played online games was virtually the same, 77.7% vs. 78.5%, respectively. Boys, however, were much more likely to report they went online to get “Tips”…

IndieGames.com

Comrade in righteousness Tim W has some news: his blogging on the independent games scene is now going to be found at IndieGames.com. That's a part of CMP Media's blog network, which already includes the excellent GameSetWatch and Worlds In Motion. We like to think of them as our sensible cousins from across the pond. GSW's Simon Carless explains: This whole concept started a couple…

Lego Portal

No, not some incredible hybrid game announcement, but an awesome piece of Lego modeling over on Brickshelf. Today, incidentally, is Boxing Day, or the UK's official "Day After Christmas Day". It is traditionally the day that gamers spend the entire day locked in a room playing something awesome. (To be fair, we spent most of yesterday playing videogames too, but hey.) If gaming were a…

RPS Advent Game-o-Calendar: December 24th

But one door remains on our RPS-approved fairtrade advent calendar. Behind it lurks the truth, the wonderful, chocolately truth. Our game of the year. And, thank heavens, the end of about half a dozen increasingly laboured running gags. Oh, lawks. We're going to have to think up new jokes next year, aren't we? Aaargh. It's okay. Let's not think about tomorrow just yet. Let's think…

EG Top 50 Madness Mayhem Spectacular

While it seems almost impossible that you might need another Christmas run-down, the handsome chaps at Eurogamer have shamelessly copied our idea by starting their annual (oh, wait) Top 50 countdown. "So, as we often point out, the EG Top 50 is not definitive. Top 50 lists never will be unless they fairly reflect what everyone who plays games thinks, and even then they will…

Quite Good Tennis

Eurogamer publishes my preview of Empire of Sports from the same trip Jim described here. Being a preview, I talk about the game a wee bit more, starting like this... You knew that, eventually, it was coming. Perhaps the only surprise is that it came from a relatively obscure French team rather than one of the mega-publishers. You'd have thought that - say - Electronic…

JETPACKS!

While I weight up the possibility of starting Christmas shopping and/or working out how to get back to my hometown of Stafford, Colin Pyle brings us news that Shacknews brought him news of some leaked footage for something that looks an awful lot like Starsiege Tribes from GarageGames... founded by members of Dynamix... who... made... Starsiege tribes. Woo! Garagegames have stressed this is alpha footage…
