Grand Theft Auto IV is missing from Steam, for now, anyway

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…

Not For Broadcast is a hectic dystopian TV simulator

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…

Disco Elysium considered Twitter its competition for players’ attention

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…

Bethesda want you to test Fallout 76’s Wastelanders update

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…

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.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne could delete your PC save files

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…

Spend your Saturday watching several more PC speedruns on AGDQ

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…

You can now tinker with VVVVVV’s source code for free

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.

This Fallout 76 player made a killer maths test

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,…

Sea Of Thieves will let you tattoo meta game lore on your pirate

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.

Enter The Gungeon’s spinoff is definitely coming to PC soon

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…

The Sims 4 Tiny Living pack will force you to build a house with only 100 tiles

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.

You can join the free stress test for creature catching MMO Temtem

If Temtem looks like a Pokemon game to you, that's because it absolutely is a lot like Pokemon. The Applin doesn't fall far from the Sudowoodo—yes, it's a Pokemon joke on a PC website. If you weren't familiar with the brightly colored creature catching MMO before, now is a decent time to change that. The game comes out on January 21st, but you can sign up to…

TaniNani, a cute level flipping puzzle game, is out later this month

I originally stumbled upon TaniNani on the TIGSource forums back in October when developer Kevin Andersson first posted it. At the time, I'd vowed to be more active in the forums—which has not panned out—but fortunately Andersson is more diligent than I am and finishes what he starts. When I happened upon TaniNani again today it was to find out that it's releasing on January 23rd.

Stealth action game Lord Of The Rings: Gollum won’t look like the movies

If you haven't heard about Lord Of The Rings: Gollum, I am right there with you. The upcoming middle earth game from Daedalic Entertainment was announced early in 2019 with what sounds like very few details carved in stone aside from the main character. Daedalic are back this year to remind us that it exists and reiterate plans to release the game in 2021.

Heaven’s Vault developers tease their next game with seven words

Swords, anguish, Britain, unrequited, forests, hope, and revenge are seven words that apparently relate to the next game by Heaven's Vault developers Inkle Studios. Most game studios would post a teaser video or a cute gif to showcase what they'll be working on next but Inkle is all about words so this seems plenty fitting.

Rune 2’s publisher has regained the game’s code after its developers suddenly shut down

Rune 2, sequel to the much older RPG Rune, has been sailing through uncertain waters since its release two months ago. The publisher Ragnarok Game may have finally reached the eye of the storm as of last week when they regained control of the viking RPG's code from the former developers whose studio suddenly shut down and quickly after accepted positions at a new Bethesda…
