The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 5/5

As a retired don in the great university of the bedroom, I wasn't expecting to be aroused by Professor Rossignol. Later, I was also disturbed when he woke me up, demanding that I spout some waffle on the importance of some games none of the current faculty really felt able to talk about with confidence. Of course, with my famous arrogance, I felt confident to…

Eurogameyearenditude: Robot Unicorn Attack

Hello! Eurogamer have been doing their own, inferior to our, end of year celebrations. Basically, they get a load of their writers to do an essay about a game they loved this year. Alec has written some more about Minecraft, but I grabbed the opportunity to hammer out 1000 words about Robot Unicorn Attack. Wherein I say things like...Like an inexperienced teenager rushing orgasm-ward, Robot…

Wot I Think: Beautiful Escape: Dungeoneer

In a year where a fake game about being a serial killer was at the center of an internet whirlpool, it's somehow pleasing that another serial killer game was actually released and has performed its act of unspeakable brutality without drawing much attention to itself. Only the detectives of ElectronDance brought it to my attention. The contrasting approach to the subject matter of the two…

It’s A Wrap: Battle For Endor and/or Yavin

This is hyperold. This is pre-RPS old. Which, according to my calculations, makes it so retro it's new, to spoonerise Tricky. Tupper prodded me to playing these, and they're simply cut-to-the-bone space-shooters which I dig to hell. Battle For Yavin comes first. Battle for Endor comes second. They're based on some obscure cult-classic science fiction films, apparently. You can get them here. There's a fancy…

Chell Is Other People: Cute Portal Cosplay

Just clearing out my phone and found some footage and shots I took at the MCM Expo last weekend. It's of a Portal cosplayer who caught my eye because she had a remote control Companion cube*, which is pretty fancy. Also, now I look again, looks a lot like a teen version of Ex-Edge Ed now-designer Margaret Robertson. Spooks! Click through for the full photo,…

The Sunday Papers Gillen-y Supplement

So, I've been a games journalist for 15 years. First work was in 1995, when I did my first work for Amiga Power which has been long since lost. I joined PC Gamer in 1998, where I was for five years. I don't own the copyright to my work of that period, bar the occasional reminisced-about exception I was given permission to lob online, so…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for doing this one last time before Jim takes over next week. Well - one last time and a little self-indulgent extra later today you'll have to wait for. Fine (mostly) gaming reading, collated from across the week, with a desperate attempt to avoid linking to some piece of pop music and then a "Failed" when I inevitably don't, in a joke I…

I Am The Mob: Mafia II, Subjectivity And Story

I wasn't really following the Mafia II is-it-good-or-nob controversy, for the simple reason that I thought it was probably a little bit nob. When the initial reviews came in, there was a clear division between people who thought it was a bit of a disappointment and people who thought it was supa-dupa-fly. To be honest, I presumed that the people who liked it were presumably…

My! My!: Waterloo In Mount & Blade

I woke up to Fredrik Wester's twitter about the Waterloo event for Mount & Blade. Which is actually based around a load of people playing Mount & Blade: Warband with the Mount & Musket mod, which sounds like the sort of thing we should encourage. Also, linking to the last post, it strikes me that the most RPS mod in the world would be someone…

Guybrush Sweeps: The Force Unleashed 2

Despite the fact the game's coming to the PC, and despite the fact it's out at the end of the month, despite the fact we'll post any old nonsense... we haven't actually done anything on the forthcoming The Force Unleashed 2. Clearly, this has cut deep into the heart of the Lucasbeast, who respond by doing the one thing which will guarantee us doing a…

Sporn Again: Darkspore Combat Trailer

People were generally down on Darkspore's non-gameplay teaser-trailer for the perhaps understandable reason that it's a franchise-expansion with a silly name to a poorly received game and all we really saw was a big old goopy-dude. I suspect the following combat trailer will give people a much better handle on Darkspore. At the least it says the magic phrase "4-player Co-op" which is hard to…

Mechanic Spoilers: Beyond I Am Your Father

Spoilers have been on my mind. Not the Darth Vader is Bruce Willis in the Sixth Sense way, but whether the way we think about and talk about spoilers in reviews are actually appropriate for the form. In short: we spend a lot of time debating about things which barely affect our experiences at all while tearing other things free from the still living torso…

You Must Have Been A Wing Commander

Wing Commander is 20, apparently. Mythic's Paul Barnett has a plan: "My plan is Wing Commander 1, DRM free and security bypassed. For FREE." he says on his twitter. The noble tech guys actually have a Security-cleaned DOS-Box-running version of the game running. What's the problem? "Today we get data compare sign off for Wing Commander, Dr Ray will be hearing the pitch, from there…

Doublefine Recruits Staff Member

Which isn't much of a story, until Kotaku reveal that the staffmember is in fact Ron "Monkey Island" Gilbert, being hired by Tim "Monkey Island" Schafer. The interview is really worth reading for the gags alone, but basically Gilbert was working in the Double Fine office (As he hates working from Home) and Schafer offered him the gig to make what they were talking about.…

Only So Many Good Old Games?

This excerpt from a hefty interview with Good Old Game's Guillaume Rambourg caught my eye..."The thing is, I believe we are running after roughly 200 good old games, and then I think the PC catalogue will be pretty much packed. There are only so many good old games. 450, 500 and then I think we'll be done." Which does make sense, as long as the…

The Gun Club: Bulletstorm Shootosity

Finally watched the latest footage from Bulletstorm, which - like last time - is producer Tanya Jessen having a good old yabber over the last demo. In this case, from the Tokyo game-show. This time, we're weapon centric, talking about how they've concentrated on making sure the gun that fires enormous cannonballs is the sort of enormous, cannonball-firing gun they want. Go footage!

Eurogamer Expo RPS Meet-o-chat Details

You may remember us setting up some lovely polls to see whether people wanted to hook up at the Eurogamer Expo. And you do! So, I've OBEYED YOUR WILL and done some phoning around and actually booked a room for RPS' EVIL USES on Friday October 1st. Full details follow, including what I suggest folk do on the other nights.EDIT: There's a second map with…
