Wolcen: Lords Of Mayhem is ridiculous and I love it

The world is crying out for Diablikes, or at least it seems that way from the rampant success of Wolcen: Lords Of Mayhem, a hacking, slashing, dungeon crawling action RPG that went into the top ten on Steam as soon as it released. It's only climbed higher since, despite the fact that it's only just left early access and is not issue-free. Also despite the…

Feature: (The YouTuber is our YouTuber)

This YouTuber built What Remains Of Edith Finch in The Sims 4

Alice L. was the person who really encouraged me to dive headlong into the pool of long build projects that is my fandom of The Sims 4. She is both one third of the Council Of Alices and one third of the RPS VidBud team on YouTube, and she's just started a new Sims 4-themed video series. In Can We Build It?, Alice L. attempts…

Feature: Going underground

Making strange friends and tripping on mushrooms in The Longing

We return to the dark, dank caverns of the underground, where A Shade faithfully waits, for 400 days, for their king to wake. If you need to catch up, The Longing is a game that takes approximately 400 days to play. You control A Shade, a little inkblot of a creature living deep in the ground. Although they are currently a devoted servant to the…

Feature: Bunker? I hardly know her!

These working bunkbeds for The Sims 4 are amazing, including an agonising pun

As I continue to build stuff in The Sims 4, I am going to start highlighting some of the amazing work being done by custom content creators. This week, one of my absolute favourite creators, Ravasheen, released a new bedroom set - the That's What She Bed bunk bed series (one of the reasons Ravasheen is a favourite of mine is that all of their…

Feature: Hell of a commute

The Pedestrian review

For good or ill, it feels like puzzle platformers are a dime a dozen these days. Stand on a thing, jump up to another thing, bounce off a trampoline - oh whoops, there was a circular saw in the way. Try doing the jump slightly differently this time, idiot. They're like the kind of fitness benchmark tests that all PE teachers secretly dream they could…

Have You Played… Exmortis?

When I was younger I didn't have a console or a very powerful PC, only the big chugging family one in the corner of one room. There weren't many games for it either, just the ones my brother had left behind when he went to university (he kept the discs in big stacks on his desk, rather than in their cases, and remembering that today…

Warcraft 3: Reforged review

Warcraft III was an immensely important game for a lot of people. A fantasy RTS that lead right into the start of World Of Warcraft, it left a big, war-booted footprint on the landscape of games. Odds are, you will have felt its impact even if you never played RTS games, since the original Dota grew out of a mod for Warcraft III's multiplayer mode.…

A new Sims 4 Tiny Living build: look at this lovely cottage wot I done

My love for building stuff in The Sims 4 continues. I saw today that, in the space of about a month, my custom content folder has hit a gigabyte in size. Whoops. But this is all in service to a greater goal, which is building nice houses. After I showed everyone my tiny desert concrete block, Alice0 said she would like a house with more…

Video games to play on Brexit Day

I did not expect that I would ever Google something like "will Big Ben bong?" in service to an article for RPS, and yet here we are - and it turns out it will not. The big B day has arrived, not with a bong but a whimper. It's a sore subject for a lot of us (stuff disappearing off of Netflix; my partner is…

Feature: Temtem? I hardly know him!

Temtem carries on a proud Pokémon tradition by having a hot professor

Temtem is an early access game in which you trap and tame small creatures in magical cards, battle them against other tamers, and try to tame every variety of Temtem on the strange archipelago where you live. If this sounds like it's all a synonym for Pokémon that's because it is: Temtem is Pokémon on PC. Except, well, there are loads of Autochess games and…

Feature: Welcome to Theme Park World!

Have You Played… Theme Park World?

Also known as Theme Park 2, also know as Sim Theme Park. This game consumed my prepubescent years. That Theme Park World hasn't received a gussy up and polish to sell on Steam or GOG is a genuine surprise to me, because it's a smashing little management sim. I mean, it's a Bullfrog game, so you know what to expect.

Let me introduce you to the best item in The Sims 4 Tiny Living pack

You may have noticed, because of all the Simsposting lately, that I am well into The Sims 4 now. Brace yourself, because it is not going away soon. Anyway, like someone who has only just got into something but is into it hard, I am talking the talk even if I don't yet walk the walk. I am throwing around terms like 'Maxis match' and…

Feature: It's a bold strategy. Let's see if it pays off for me.

To practise for our The Sims 4 Tiny Living building competition, I built a giant kitchen

Tension is ramping up in the RPS office, as we approach the release of The Sims 4's new Tiny Living Stuff Pack, and thus the editorial Tiny Build-Off between me and Graham. My tactic so far has been to practise a lot at home, so I am familiar with the build controls. Graham's has been to undermine me at the office, and try to prejudice…

Feature: Also I'm about to start taxing everyone

Turns out I was the one starving my Foundation villagers all along, my bad

Regular readers will know that for a while now, I have been quietly playing Foundation, a lovely medieval citybuilder in early access, and every so often I pop in to give you an update. The last update was a stroppy one, because as part of my food production chains I was pumping out more bread than Jesus and his miracle, and yet the villagers were…
