Feature: Pixel a part that's new

This week’s Mystery Steam Reviews is about games that look old, but are new

Firstly, you'll be glad to hear that everyone stuck to the brief this week. Not a single international incident. Purely because of that, this one is a success in my eyes. And B, this week's Mystery Steam Reviews focuses on video games that look older than they are. It's faux-retro video games! In other words, fairly modern games that use a pixelated art style.

Video – Yakuza: Like A Dragon chapter 3 introduces the wonder of recycling and job centres

After a pretty rough run-in with someone that Kasuga thought was his pal, the protagonist of Yakuza: Like A Dragon has ended up homeless in Ijincho. But, that's not much to worry about, because he's got the power of positivity and the realistic Nanba by his side.And these two lads are ready to do some recycling and get some jobs!This is LollaYakuza #03: The Town…

Have You Played… BattleBlock Theater?

It's not the story that revolves around a top hat keeping you hostage. It's not the puzzle-platforming that has you navigating grid-based levels and dangerous blocks. It's not even the fart jokes. The reason Battleblock Theater will always have a place in my heart is down to three simple words: "it's a secret."

Video: Mystery Steam Reviews – Britain gets controversial

The quiz segment of The PC Gaming Weekspot regularly brings about some heated discussion. But, more often than not, both myself and Matthew know that it's all in the spirit of competition. When all is said and done, there's still a level of respect there.This week's Mystery Steam Reviews is different. I knew focusing on games set in Britain could bring some controversy, but I…

Feature: LollaYakuza #02: Bloody Reunion

Video – Yakuza: Like A Dragon chapter 2 has both a graveyard AND a dungeon

I don't think I fully appreciated how long Yakuza: Like A Dragon was going to be when I started this let's play series. Still, the sincerity and scenery-chewing of its characters will get me through this mammoth task quite easily, I think. It'll have to, because we're still very much in cutscene city at the moment.This is LollaYakuza #02: Bloody Reunion.

Video: Mystery Steam Reviews, but scary because Resident Evil has given birth

Let's just pretend that Halloween is this weekend and we were very timely when choosing the theme for this week's Mystery Steam Reviews, okay?Okay...GHOSTS! GOBLINS! SCARY THINGS! Yes, because it's that time of the year again, we decided to test each other's horror game knowledge (via Steam reviews) on this week's episode of The PC Gaming Weekspot.

Video: enjoy the mean streets and cool suits of Yakuza: Like A Dragon’s first chapter

I've been looking forward to Yakuza: Like A Dragon ever since the RPG combat was first shown off. Sure, I thought it was an April Fool's at first, too, but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. There needed to be a clean break between the old protagonist and coolest dad in the world, Kazuma Kiryu, and the new boy in…

Have You Played… Pyre?

I’m convinced everyone at Supergiant Games were watching old episodes of Gladiators on the ITV Hub when they were making Pyre. I get the basketball comparisons, obvs, but it reminded me so much of powerball that I couldn’t help but wonder why referee John Anderson wasn’t asking me if I was ready at the beginning of every match.

Feature: 2D is the greatest D I've ever known

Have You Played… Sonic Generations?

The first time my friend showed me a blue hedgehog whizzing across the screen from left-to-right, I knew I had to get a Mega Drive. It didn’t stop there, though: I had to read the comics, watch the cartoon, get the toys. Sonic The Hedgehog became a pivotal figure in my life as soon as I laid eyes on him.And then he let me down.

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…
