Podcast: Episode 100, in which we finally hand out review scores

Rock Paper Shotgun doesn't do scores - until today! For a very special episode 100 of the Electronic Wireless Show, we've decided to finally ditch coherent critical analysis in favour of the comforting certainty of math(s). Over the course of the episode, Matthew, Nate and special guest host Graham (hi) assign numerical scores to 100 games, and then average out the results to deliver a…

Ultrakill’s demo offers a colourful Quake-like where blood is fuel

"Mankind is dead. Blood is fuel. Hell is full." What a lovely poem, which is used to describe Ultrakill, a fast-paced first-person shooter that's like Quake with more colourful levels and a lot of jumping. It's been kicking around for a while, but a new trailer and demo are available now.

Space Crew is the sequel to Bomber Crew, with a demo soon

Bomber Crew was already a bit FTL-like, and its sequel is leaning in. Space Crew swaps the original's World War 2 setting for outer space, but otherwise still looks to be a strategy game about telling your vessel's crew what to do as you launch missiles and catch fire. The announcement trailer can be found below.

Mafia: Definitive Edition is more than just a lick of paint

Mafia: Definitive Edition looks a bit nice. The remake of the 2002 open world crime 'em up was announced with an extremely brief trailer a few weeks ago, but it was unclear exactly how remade it would be. A new trailer today makes clear that the answer is: a lot. It's a ground-up recreation, and the screenshot above gives a sense of the graphical upgrade.

Feature: No we didn't like it, but we tried to fight it

Wildfire review

Stealth games tend to come in two flavours. Nowadays most are systemic playgrounds, in which players are presented with a range of options for how to deal with any given situation, and errors are forgiven after the few seconds it takes a guard to decide it was probably rats. A handful of others are more rigid, with only one correct way to play, and each…

Would you give up your Xbox controller to use the new PS5 DualSense instead?

The Xbox controller long ago became the de facto standard for playing PC games with a pad, but Sony's DualShock 4 also got PC support a long time ago via Steam or a piece of software called DS4Windows. The DS4 a fine controller and I've used it every so often on PC, particularly when dabbling with PlayStation Now, Sony's remote play service on PC. Sony…
