U.S. presidents and Far Cry 3 monologues feature in this week’s Mystery Steam Reviews

Feature: All you can eat

Have You Played… Donut County?

Donut County is like Katamari Damacy, but tidier. Instead of rolling everything up into an ever-increasing ball of mess, you're sucking everything underground until the surface is bare. As an expanding hole, you eat bricks, chairs, cars, until eventually you're able to gobble up entire houses. And who doesn't love some tasty brickwork for their tea?

This week’s Mystery Steam Reviews is all coffin sex and shovels

Every Monday evening, my pal and I get cross with one another for around three quarters of an hour. Things are mostly cordial, light-hearted and fun during The PC Gaming Weekspot (our live, weekly video podcast), but Mystery Steam Reviews just brings out the worst in us.Still... it's good craic.

Parkour, zombies, and skeletons with breasts: it must be Mystery Steam Reviews

For those that don't know, The PC Gaming Weekspot is a live, weekly video podcast that myself and my former VidBud Matthew Castle do every Monday evening over on the Rock Paper Shotgun YouTube channel. It's a recap of the last seven days in PC gaming, with chat on the latest news, as well as some reviews on the latest games. But there's one segment…

Feature: Red vs Blue

Have You Played… Outland?

Outland doesn't have a unique bone in its red and blue body. You can reach new areas in the world after unlocking abilities, like Metroid; you navigate the environment with the agility of the Prince Of Persia; and you take out baddies by changing the colour of your character, like Ikaruga. Its that last one that makes Outland a great 2D action-platformer, rather than just…

Have You Played… Oxenfree?

If your friend asked you a question – innocuous or not – they wouldn't just sit there, quietly, waiting for you to answer. They'd continue the conversation with a follow-up query or statement, or they'd change the topic. The point is: they wouldn't just... wait. But that's what video game characters regularly do when players are given dialogue options. NPCs shut their traps, eagerly awaiting…

Feature: Everybody Loves Rayman

Have You Played… Rayman Origins?

Rayman is now a bit part player. Like Ubi stablemate Sam Fisher, his days of being the main attraction are over. Despite the quality of 2013’s Rayman Legends, the limbless wonder seems confined to making sporadic appearances in games that just aren’t as good as his own.Although, it’s not like Ray’s a stranger to a comeback. After many years on the shelf, his act was…

Have You Played… Untitled Goose Game?

The majority of us try to get through life without any unnecessary conflict. It's a hassle that most can do without. That's why I love games that allow for some tomfoolery. All the fun of being a bit mean, without any of the consequence. Although, I should say that I'm not talking about choosing the renegade option in Mass Effect; I'm talking about some wholesome…

Have You Played… FIFA: Road To World Cup 98?

FIFA goes through cycles. We’ll get a few years of exciting innovation, and then a few years of EA simply changing the fella on the front cover. It’s how it’s always been, and I can only imagine how it will always be. In 1997, though, it was most definitely the former.While the ISS vs FIFA feud was hotting up (due to the sheer quality of…

The PC port is the best way to play Horizon Zero Dawn

Folks, the time has almost come. Yes, Horizon Zero Dawn's PC release is mere days away. Soon, Guerrilla Games' former Sony exclusive will be unleashed on a new segment of the game playing public like a big robot dinosaur set free in a water park. We here at RPS are looking at HZD from several angles, so while Nate is down in the wordmines right…

Can you get a perfect score on our Assassin’s Creed music quiz?

If so, then you should check out our latest music quiz, which focuses on all things Assassin's Creed.Because the masses have been eating up online quizzes during lockdown, RPS' video wing has been testing the waters to see if you, the video game playing public, also enjoy them.…

You can’t pet the dog in Superhot: Mind Control Delete

Superhot: Mind Control Delete is the standalone follow-up to phenomenal FPS puzzler Superhot. It's been in early access for a while, but if you already own Superhot, you'll get Mind Control Delete for free when it comes out on July 16th. Mind Control Delete has a lot of cool new enemies that are effectively slight variations on the shimmering silhouettes that chased after you in…

Feature: Where the wild things are

Biomutant sounds like Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but furrier

The Biomutant reveal feels like a lifetime ago. Announced at Gamescom in 2017, the kung fu... cat/panda/bear-thing captured the imagination of everyone with that first trailer. And, despite some delays, the excitement for Experiment 101's open world RPG has been growing ever since. No wonder, I suppose. You are a kung fu cat/panda/bear-thing, after all.

SpongeBob: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehydrated is your childhood, but shinier

I never got SpongeBob Squarepants. When he was in his pomp, I was in that awkward pre-teen phase where I thought I was too old to just enjoy it as a cartoon, but not quite old enough to be part of the older folk that watched. Because of that, I never played Battle For Bikini Bottom when it first launched in 2003. I have a…

Watch EA Play Live 2020 right here and stick around for Vidbud analysis

Myself and Matthew are continuing Rock Paper Shotgun's not-E3 E3 2020 video coverage with some pre- and post-show chat on EA's EA Play Live 2020 show, starting at 11.40pm BST. We'd love it if you came and watched us talk absolute wallop at an ungodly hour. I will be caning some Nescafé Azera to stay up. Inhaling granules straight from the tin.

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is so destructive… but so relaxing

Without good, honest workers stripping apart old spaceships, the galaxy would be much more crowded. The reason you never see Luke Skywalker run into traffic is because of the hard work done by the great tradesmen of the Milky Way. If you've always been more interested in carefully dismantling spaceships rather than flying them, Hardspace: Shipbreaker is definitely something you should check out.

Have You Played… Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine?

There aren’t enough heist-focused video games. You’d think the ludicrous success of Grand Theft Auto V would’ve led to more Ocean’s inspired capers, but no. Where are all my Nespresso-drinking, salt and pepper hair-having protagonists? At least the spirit of Clooney and Friends can be found in Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine.

Come and support our second Black Lives Matter charity stream

To support the ongoing protests against police brutality and systemic racism, the Rock Paper Shotgun video team is amplifying Black streamers in an effort to raise money for the great organisation that is the NAACP. Last Tuesday we all watched as Tianna Mercedes put us all to shame by playing a blinder in Call of Duty: Warzone. Today, we've got the excellent NNESAGA on to…

Have You Played… Charlie Murder?

Despite the occasional highlight that captures the imagination of the masses, beat ‘em ups are sometimes seen as also rans these days. Likewise, punk rock anthems rarely make their way onto the top 40. Ska Studios didn’t let any indifference to either deter them from making three power chord trick video game equivalent Charlie Murder.
