What are we all playing this weekend?

We've started opening the doors of the RPS Advent Calendar, revealing our favourite games of the year. We also declared our fifty favourite PC games of the decade. Each is missing things I'd like to see (and I already voted tactically to jam in some niche favourites) but ah, that's a lot of good video games there. And I am glad to be getting back…

Red Dead Redemption 2’s Steam launch has not gone smoothly

After one bad launch for Red Dead Redemption 2 with its PC debut on Rockstar and Epic's stores in November, I had thought Rockstar might make the most of the second chance for a smooth launch presented by its belated Steam release last night. They have not. Along with the crashing and performance issues still suffered by all players, the Steam release seems to have…

Gearbox’s Battleborn shutting down fully in January 2021

Gearbox Software's 2016 flop of an FPS Battleborn now has a clear path to its death. Publishers 2K announced plans to shut down the multi-hyphenate hero shooter's servers in January 2021, rendering the game fully unplayable - singleplayer and all.

Final Fantasy XIV seems to weirdly start enforcing datamining rules

Several Final Fantasy XIV players have reported receiving temporary bans for 'datamining' - digging around in the game's data files to find traces of upcoming content and share the surprise.

With just over one week to go until Phoenix Point launches, the developers have explained what they've been polishing and tweaking since the last build for backers. It sounds good!

Phoenix Point has…

Half-Life: Alyx, Microsoft’s accessibility efforts, and more PC news this week

Valve are making a new Half-Life and... what else happened this week? The announcement of Half-Life: Alyx kind of blotted out everything else, including the launch of Google Stadia.
