The Sims 4 is looking for player feedback on what features will make the cut for the future of the game. Over on Twitter, a Sims community manager tweeted a survey gauging player interest in ideas such as new relationship types, second homes, and designing resorts.
The next content update for World Of Warcraft is live and things are looking pretty dark. The Old God N’Zoth has escaped his former prison and is setting about attacking the minds of warriors instead of their bodies. The Visions Of N'Zoth update adds new races and combat challenges for both factions.
Remember when Twitch Plays Pokemon was all the rage? Imagine that, but Twitch chat isn't playing the game, they're betting on it instead. The Twitch channel FFTBattleground has set up tournaments of AI bots playing Final Fantasy Tactics against one another that viewers can bet fake Gs on.

Last month, the hellishly cold city management game Frostpunk announced an upcoming DLC telling the story of civilisation just before the freeze. At the time, there was only an animated teaser trailer for The Last Autumn. This week, 11 Bit Studios are showing off gameplay from the new DLC with some of the elements you can expect from the prequel story.

Last week I joked that the next Frictional game could be an auto chess or battle royale game. Joke's on me because Ubisoft are the ones doing that. Both at once, even. Might & Magic: Chess Royale is launching later this month as a mashup of the two genres that 2019 did nearly (but not quite, it seems) to death.
Just in time to launch Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, Rockstar announced their own game launcher for desktop. Despite having both Grand Theft Auto V and San Andreas available on the new digital storefront, Grand Theft Auto IV is still notably absent. Now it's been delisted from Steam as well, though it doesn't actually seem to be related to any grand plans Rockstar have…
I imagine that running the switchboards for a live television show is difficult but I must not have imagined hard enough because Not For Broadcast makes it look even more hectic. The silly dystopian setting of an alternate 1980s is made up of a bunch of fake live action news sequences that remind me of the full-motion game scenes of yore like Tim Curry in…
I'll level with you. I don't know a thing about Taekwondo and I know only slightly more things about fighting games. But I do know how health bars work in video games which is exactly what this particular martial arts match looks like. Even someone like me with no prior knowledge can track when to cheer, which is pretty neat.

Disco Elysium was by and far my own game of the year for 2019 and it made RPS's list of best PC games of 2019 as well. Its gritty, ugly characters are memorable and its plot, despite quickly getting convoluted, is as hard to look away from as the latest original series from your TV subscription of choice. Rather than other text-heavy RPGs, though, lead…

Since its launch, Fallout 76 players have been hoping for human NPCs and the stories that follow them to return to the wasteland. Bethesda must have agreed that its irradiated West Virginia was lacking because they announced the Wastelander update last year to bring human companions and related quests to the game. The update has been delayed to an unspecified time in 2020. It must be…
For several years now, a group of volunteer modders called The Elder Scrolls Renewal Project have been working on Skywind, a standalone mod recreating Morrowind using Skyrim's Creation Kit. The Skywind team posted a rare development video today giving a status update on the project wrapped in a callout for new volunteers in several disciplines with all levels of experience.
The new Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter: World launched on PC yesterday. For players who are running the new campaign without issue, RPS' Iceborne review calls it one of the "bestest bests." For others, save file issues and performance problems might make for a frigid first experience. Make sure to back up your MH:W save files because there's a chance Iceborne or the simultaneous game…
The yearly speedrunning event AGDQ is nearing its end but there are still a lot of PC runs to watch tomorrow, many of them new releases from 2019. The week-long winter edition of Games Done Quick is always fascinating even for older games with established speedrunning strategies. For new PC games, it will be a treat to see the earliest methods and discoveries that speedrunners…
Gravity-swapping platformer VVVVVV is 10 years old as of today. For this big birthday, creator Terry Cavanagh is releasing its source code for free. You can dig into the guts of a breakout indie game from the booming years of the 4:3 aspect ratio which might actually be a more interesting prospect than it sounds.
Yes, I know. Fallout 76 is not exactly a beloved game what with the whole Fallout 1st subscription launching at the same time the free Wastelanders update was delayed. Before that was the game's initial, buggy launch. There are still players out there who do seem to love it and continue to make delightfully silly creations all over irradiated West Virginia. This now-notorious player, for instance,…
A free content update is coming next week to the silly online swashbuckling game Sea Of Thieves. As a precursor, Rare have released a developer update video explaining one community-focused addition. The Legends Of The Sea update will give more prominence to easter eggs already present in the game to immortalize certain players.
The pixely dog warrior tactics game Wargroove is getting a free DLC next month centered around a new co-op focused campaign. The Double Trouble DLC is dropping on February 6th. Just in time, I suppose, for the day that co-op life partners celebrate together. Double Trouble also adds new commanders, units, and arcade missions.
Back in September, Dodge Roll announced and released Exit The Gungeon, a spinoff to their bullet hell roguelike game Enter The Gungeon, on Apple Arcade. After getting a lot of questions on the subject, Dodge Roll made sure to to hang a lantern on the words "timed exclusive" in their followup post. The exclusivity period is ending soon, it seems, because Dodge Roll have now announced…
Later this month you'll be able to build tiny houses in The Sims 4. Well, you've always been able to build tiny houses but now you'll be able to do so with fashionable tiny house items like a bookshelf which also has a TV on it and Murphy beds—which I've just learned is the proper name for those beds that pop out of walls.
