Let's think about it while reading some of the week's best writing about videogames.Brendan Caldwell, RPS in peace, wrote about his experiences being dog piled by Final Fantasy fans. That was for an article he wrote while here, by…

Feature: Technical witchery married to a good game

Noita review

Fast and loose, or tight and controlled? That's the question I ask myself at the start of any run in a game with permadeath - that is, a game that sends me back to the beginning upon death. On this particular life, am I going to try my hardest, and aim for deliberate progress toward a specific goal, or am I going to throw caution…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for-- oh no. Sundays are for doing my taxes. Quick, let's procrastinate with some of the week's best games writing (and podcasts, and TikToks).Brendan Caldwell, former features editor and current RPS list goblin, launched a podcast this past week. Hey Lesson! is a podcast about asking smart people stupid questions about videogames. For example, he asks neuroscientist Dr Ofir Turel about piss mushrooms…

Feature: A free Breath Of The Wild 'em up on PC

Against all odds, Genshin Impact is one of the best games of 2020

Genshin Impact has a lot in common with Breath Of The Wild, including the ability to climb any surface, a pocket hang glider, the design of its enemies, and the need to stuff your pockets with cooking ingredients. But rather than criticise it for being derivative, I want to celebrate it for what it gets right - and what it adds - to the formula…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for taking a trip to Aldi to stock up on mozzarella and sundried tomato pots, because those are the only thing I'd eat if they ever had more than two tubs on the shelves at a time. Ignore the sweet oil though, and instead wash down your own mouthfuls of cheese with some of the week's best writing about (mostly) games.A few years…

Podcast episode 111: the death special

Alice is on holiday, which means it falls to me to lead Nate and Matthew in cheerful conversation. Unfortunately I've been playing a lot of Spelunky 2 over the past two weeks, which means all our cheery conversation in this week's Electronic Wireless Show is about death. We talk about our favourite deaths in videogames, whether they be the systems-driven demise of a Crusader Kings…

Watch me try then die in today’s Spelunky 2 daily challenge

Now that Spelunky 2 is out on PC, its daily challenge mode is available to play. If you don't know: the daily challenge is a single chance to play a set of Spelunky levels that are the same for everyone playing that day. It was my favourite way to play Spelunky 1 and it's unchanged in Spelunky 2. Part of the fun of the daily…

Feature: Crysis Remastered, reviewed

Sure, Crysis Remastered is nice, but have you ever played the original Crysis?

Crysis was always about more than its graphics. Crysis was and is a first-person stealth playground, with destructible buildings, clever enemies, and a set of flexible superpowers with which to make one collide with the other. Crysis Remastered is that game again, with new graphical bells and whistles you probably can't use, and a substantially higher price than the original game costs now.
