Hitman 2’s new homing briefcase turns every game into It Follows

Thanks to a peppering of weird bugs over the years, Hitman has seen a few iterations of the killer briefcase come and go. Hitman 2's briefcase bug, often heralded in the form of long GIFs, turns your standard hitman briefcase into a homing missile that spins like a throwing star and bends gently around corners as it follows its prey. Now, developer IO Interactive have…

Total War Saga: Troy gets trademarked by The Creative Assembly

The act of reading tea leaves is an art, but there are many ways to peer out into the mists of time. Like the Oracle of Delphi, my preferred method of making psychic predictions involves inhaling the fumes from my KFC bucket until I astral project into the future. But there's still another option: the UK Intellectual Property Office website. And [pivots to camera] if…

Just Cause 4 expansion adds hoverboards with gosh dang KICKFLIPS

O, the tale of wiley explosion-magnet Rico Rodriguez is indeed drawing to a close. Just Cause 4's third and final expansion Danger Rising brings an end to the series yarn about ludicrous chaos, secretly evil government agencies, and demons(?). And like the final chapter of any great work of cultural significance, the conclusion of Just Cause will feature the most important element of storytelling: Kick-flipping…

My Time At Portia gets in the mood for love with a romance update

Harvest Moonesque wholesome life simulator My Time At Portia just got an injection of romantic side-quests in celebration of this week's Chinese Qixi Festival, also known as China's Valentine's Day. In the words of my country's greatest poetess of love Celine Dion: Near, far, wherever you are, I believe that free updates are bon ("good" in French).

One of the devs behind The Stanley Parable made a free MMO

Indie developer Crows Crows Crows, whose founder William Pugh is one of the developers behind The Stanley Parable, has released a free browser-based MMO. It is described as "a mix between Journey, RuneScape and that time U2’s new album got auto-installed on everybody’s iPhones." The Club - a blocky 90s-Internet styled multi-player discothon whose name is surrounded by the animated GIF flames of a Geocities…

Ark: Genesis lets you build houses on giant sea turtles

Multiplayer dinosaur-riding island-surviv-a-thon series Ark: Survival Evolved has taken inspiration from my fever dreams and will be introducing giant sea turtles who double as islands which then double as an open construction site for your future home. The next chapter in the ongoing Ark saga, known as Ark: Genesis, will be made up of two hefty expansion packs. These will introduce tameable albeit shapeshifting animals…

Total War: Three Kingdoms expansion has eight princes, but no Purple Rain

Eight Princes - the latest expansion for Total War: Three Kingdoms - has launched, bringing with it eight playable princes with the singular aim of carving their legacy into the sinewy flesh of history. None of them are from Minneapolis though, I've checked. Taking place in the year 291CE, a generation has passed since the events of the Three Kingdoms period and while power between…

Puncraft: Reserve your WoW Classic puns ahead of launch

Hello! Gera here. I have been given the keys to RPS HQ while Alice takes her usual evening sabbatical into the Rock Paper Sensory Deprivation tank where she goes to ruminate on the day's news. In the meantime I am using my newfound power like anybody would, which is by making many tiny yet still perceptible changes to the RPS homepage. Hey, nice vertical border.…

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 – Winds of Magic sends in the cow men on August 13

The first expansion for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Winds of Magic - is launching on August 13th, indie dev Fatshark revealed today. Winds of Magic introduces a new enemy type known as the Beastmen, a faction of cloven-hooved bipedal jerks who, according to Warhammer lore, are intent on destroying civilization and being all around bovine-faced hooligans.

Metal Wolf Chaos XD puts the American President into a mech suit

I've just come across the most recent fact to have ruined my day, and I'm here to share it with you: Did you know that the year 2004 - a time which exists in my mind as a temporal island that I was just walking through about three minutes ago - actually took place 15 years ago? It's true, because I was able to do…

Cyberpunk 2077 will get a New Game Plus mode

Cyberpunk 2077 developers CD Projekt Red have confirmed they are working on a New Game Plus mode, which I can only hope somehow incorporates a Keanu Reeves-starring storyline which is just the plot of My Own Private Idaho except it takes place in the year 2077. Alas, we'll have to wait to find out if I'm right because there are no actual details available.

This Stardew Valley mod is all about cross-species friendship

In the depths of my heart can be found a place barely accessible to anything, cold and barren. But like a Russian Sleeper agent or Denzel Washington in The Manchurian Candidate, this heart can become triggered into action instantly by the incantation of a single phrase. My heart, a wasteland of memories about dogs and good sandwiches once had, will thump with the euphoric power…

Air Brawl Brings Angry Bats To Plane Warfare

Imagine my disappointment when I clicked on a link about Air Brawl [official Facebook] only to realise the game didn't have anything to do with the classic Golden Retriever Basketball oeuvre. Instead, Air Brawl - a game about plane acrobatics and flying, gunny death - is intriguing even in the face of a supreme lack of heartwarming doggy yarn. It's been on Early Access for…
