Coast down The Molten Falls in Quake Champions update

Quake Champions is a fascinating experiment in remaking a game and trying to make that game both exactly like the original game but just More. The title has been impressively on top of their game, regarding monthly-ish updates and the addition of new characters, maps, and balance tweaks. They've also made the way that you and your pals explode into meat much more specific. Now,…

Tempest 4000 set to cause sensory overload this month

Americans don't know Jeff Minter in the way he's known elsewhere. At least, that's what I've been told, and it tracks because I didn't know who Minter was either. The game creator has repeatedly butted heads with The Creature That Wears The Skin Of Atari, so it is delightful to see that some kind of common ground was reached to allow Minter to make this…

Overwatch’s DeathHamster uses grappling hook to break players; game

He came in like a... well, what would you call it? A spherical distruption? No... but that's close... Anyhowdy, there's a new little furball in action amidst the unending battle nightmare of Overwatch. Hammond the Hamster pilots a gigantic murder-mech of his own design, built from the escape pod he used to flee an evil science lab. Wrecking Ball is the most innovative and wacky…

The DreamboxXx Bundle supports LGBTQ+ and Immigration non-profits

If you read our site, you're probably familiar with Robert Yang at this point. One of my first introductions to Yang's work was through this RPS article on The Tearoom, which is a "historic bathroom simulator" that dealt with gay issues but could not include gay sex, so the in-game penises were replaced with guns, because no one in the industry will ban a game…

Contagion VR: Outbreak breaks into Early Access with free demo

Back in 2014, we covered Contagion, a multiplayer co-op zombie game that was dark as all hell and equally hard, but with delightful twists and incredibly well done maps. As Craig said of the game at the time, the levels aren't huge but they're incredible densely designed, and built to be slowly explored. Well, Contagion is coming to VR now as Contagion VR: Outbreak, and…

Fortnite cracks the sky with gigantic rocket; probably not good

Fortnite: Battle Royale is no stranger to royal displays of extravagance. Heck, that good spacedaddy Thanos ran amok in there for a while. But today, we've witnessed a Once In A Game experience: they shot a rocket into the sky and it made the sky not work anymore. We're not sure what it means, but there's plenty of video of what went down, and certainly…

It Is As If You Were Making Love is complicated at best

Well. This is not what I expected to be doing today. Apparently, I've just pleasured my computer sexually via a series of old school Windows sliders. Set in a future where physical intimacy is (finally) a thing of the past, this free game invites you to find release in a medium that... I don't know, man. What did I just play? Are we even playing…

Wow! 2001 video game Halo gets a TV show in 2018

A little known title from seventeen years ago is seeing a small screen adaptation on the horizon. Halo: Combat Evolved was a first person shooter that encouraged retro gamers to traverse national parks on a large ring and visit the local library. The TV retelling of a guy who doesn't talk and the sexy lady who lives in his arm is coming to Showtime in…

Honey, I Joined A Cult is the Prison Architect of the soul

Look, y'all know me. I'm your friend Brock. I love anything having to do with a cult. Hell, I went out and found my own, once. And this week, I talked about cults and games YET AGAIN. So, I was a little surprised when an indie cult game snuck under my radar. It is named, pleasantly, Honey, I Joined A Cult. The game looks to…

Minotaur blends cyberpunk visual novels and Sierra adventures

My favorite trend in gaming is finding ways to add new gameplay elements to visual novels, and today I've got a hybrid for y'all that looks craaaaaaazy great. Minotaur is a VN with a cyberpunk art style, beautiful animations, and a point-and-click adventure game interface. Striving to be a mix of Zero Escape/Danganronpa and Sierra/LucasArts clicky-cutes of yore, it looks like it nails the blend.…

Team Sonic Racing breaks the sound barrier in trailer

Mr. Sonic the Small Blue Animal Guy With Good Rings is back into the racing circuit. It's certainly one of the lesser beloved game franchises, and I can't help but think that's because it would be ridiculous for a character whose super-power is being super-fast to trade that power for driving cars that are equally fast to all of his competitors. It just doesn't make…

Strange Brigade dev playthrough shows off spooky puzzles

There were perhaps too many games at E3 2018 for any one person to have caught them all. That's why we're still trying to cover videos and reveals a week later. I accidentally typed "a year later" because that's how it feels. I'm fine; we're all fine here. One of the sleeper hits of the show on my end was Strange Brigade. I always super-dig…

Hello Neighbor gets asymmetrical multiplayer sequel Secret Neighbor

Hello Neighbor was one of my favorite games of 2017, mostly because it tortured its audience with bizarre visual lore and then wrecked beta players and reviewers alike with its surprise use of act structure to include three different games in one. I also got to chat with the devs about how you make such a terrifying A.I. to hunt players, and all the errors…

StarCraft updates on Korea League and Remastered

I'm perhaps too far behind to catch up on StarCraft. I played back in the day but 15 years of competitive epsorts later, I rarely understand what I'm seeing when I watch the Big Match. (For what it is worth, I'm suddenly finding Rainbow Six: Siege to be the most watchable esport competition. Lemme know if that's how you're feeling too.) But for the game…

Final episode of Steve Gaynor’s Tone Control podcast released

Way, way back at the beginning of Kickstarter, I threw some money at a new podcast called Idle Thumbs. I didn't know this would lead to Steve Gaynor going on to become One Of Those Big Game Names, but it didn't matter because it seemed like a really cool concept made by cool people. Idle Thumbs became a podcast network and now, after two excellent…

SimBrexit game Not Tonight releases next month

Political games are picking up traction, with Papers Please and Beholder being among my favorite indies from the last couple years. A new game published by Mike Rose's No More Robots (Descenders, Hypnospace Outlaw) combines those influences with some bit-art and the current political hellscape into a Brexit simulator. I'm exceptionally excited for the impending release of Not Tonight because I love when video games…

World of Warcraft Classic is progressing/regressing nicely

Blizzard has been working on launching World of Warcraft servers that just run a classic version of the game, back before all of the updates were added to the world... of Warcraft... over the years. It's an ambitious choice because it's not just about re-launching some early version of the game; it's about perfecting and updating a very specific slice of the game so that…

Blast-off in Space Invaders Extreme demo

So. This isn't a new game. In fact, it's basically the oldest game. There's nothing in modern games we would have without Space Invaders, including the excellent Adam Sandler films Pixels. You remember Pixels right? It made $244,000,000 in 2015, because in 2015 we were all very stupid and bad. Not me though. I have been and always will be the most not stupid person…
