Activision Announce Call Of Duty Convention

Ye Gods. Activision has announced Call of Duty XP 2011, a convention for Call of Duty fans taking place in Los Angeles on September the 2nd and 3rd of this year. Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg cheerily admits to the event being based on Blizzard's yearly Blizzcon and says that it will allow CoD fans to "feel like you stepped into the game."

Age Of Conan: Unchained Arrives Tomorrow

Age of Conan's free-to-play reshuffling, Age of Conan: Unchained, arrives tomorrow. How do we know? Well, it'd be pretty hard to do this job if we didn't know stuff like that. Also, a launch trailer just came out. John's comprehensive detailing of the "freemium" business model and what changes to expect can be found in the above link (including new content that'll relate to the…

Cold Soarage: Luftrauser

Which browser game should you be playing right now?! Why, it's very rude of you to jump me with a question like that, but I do happen to know the answer. It's arcade shooter Luftrauser by Vlambeer, a flawless little bit of work that Vlambeer released "with massive losses... and at a high personal emotional cost", which was nice of them. Seriously though, play this…

Eve Online In Crisis: The EG Coverage

Eve Online's player base is currently ANGRY. The above image is of a riot that took place this Friday in Jita, one of the virtual universe's biggest trading hubs, and this thread on the official forums is keeping track of all the subscriptions that have been cancelled in protest- some 4,500 so far. Why all the rage? In short, CCP are dragging the game in…

Bounce Upon A Time: Basketbelle

Michael Molinari's browser game But That Was [Yesterday] brought an actual tear to my eye, an act not incomparable to summoning a squirt of lemon juice from a pebble, so I'm pretty excited to have just found out what he's working on next (via the Indiegames blog, of course). It's a project titled Basketbelle, a game of flashbacks and "good old 1-on-1 backyard basketball action"…

The Old Republic: Alderaan Mission Trailer

The hype-train for Bioware's upcoming MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic is trundling along nicely now. All aboard! Next stop: a two minute trailer walking you through what looks like one of the game's instanced missions. Population: The Internet. If you wanted to get off at Tatooine, you've missed your stop, but I can let you off here.

Hitman: Absolution Details Talk “Variety”

Ripten's only gone and harvested a entire picnic of Hitman: Absolution details from the latest issue of Edge, including the following bombshell- "47's voice actor will not be returning." An era is over, my friends. A weird era, but one that did, at least, perfectly capture the voice of a psychotic man raised in a jar. 47's agent and only friend, Diana, is being played…

Charted: Unearthed Announced

The critically acclaimed Uncharted games may have never made it to our fair platform, but I have some good news! Saudi Arabian studio Semphore has just announced Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta (following modern trends, I can only hope the sequel will be Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Ba2ta), a 3rd person action game that sees you picking up the trail of famous Muslim explorer Hajji…

Feature: All A Board

Not Cardboard Children: Two’s Company

Last week I said that this week’s Not Cardboard Children was going to be a roundup of great board and card games that work great with just two players (and then I taunted you with a game that needed more friends and a bigger table than you'd need for a respectable wake). I wasn’t even lying! Come, take my hand. We’re going on a magical…

Winter Is Coming: Winter Voices Get A Demo

Alright, I want you lot to listen up. I've just noticed that indie RPG Winter Voices now has a demo available that you can either grab on the official site or using Steam. I don't want you lot to run off and download it, because I'm positive that most of you would enjoy it about as much as having having smoke rings puffed in your…

Down To The Wire: Skinny

How long has it been since we posted a browser game about colossally sad robots? Entire weeks. No good. Skinny (found via the IndieGames blog) is a gentle platformer that rewards you at every turn with imagery and audio that both oscillate rapidly between being beautiful and sinister. The audio actually won the game a $25,000 prize for Best Audio at the SXSW Interactive Festival,…

This Saints Row Trailer Is What I Don’t Even

You know how, with inbreeding, the longer it goes on for the more likely the symptoms are to show? As in, it might be invisible for one generation, but after several you're bound to start seeing webbed toes and crossed eyes? Yeah. On an entirely unrelated note, the new seven minute trailer for the third Saints Row game, Saints Row: The Third, is waiting for…

Eve Online Dev Responds To Incarna Anger

Eve Online community overseer and marketing manager Pann last night responded to the anger among Eve players regarding the recent microtransaction-heavy Incarna update (which our own Alec examines here) and a leaked CCP internal memo entitled "Greed Is Good" (which you can download here). In a post on the official forums Pan apologised for not making a statement sooner and says that as of today…

Pre-Order Skyrim, Get “Premium Quality Map”

VG24/7 have reported an announcement from Bethesda that pre-order customers of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will come with a "Premium quality map" (presumably of the game world, rather than Ireland or somewhere). What with the endemic loathing of pre-order bonuses in this industry, I'm guessing that this is going to cause a good deal of conflicted soul-searching, and what makes it even worse is…

Half-Half-Half-Half-Half-Elves: TinyHack

So there I am, playing dungeon crawling browser game Legends of Yore on the request of a couple of RPS fans, and I'm thinking to myself- "This isn't very interesting, is it? I'm a bit bored. I wonder if the IndieGames Blog has a dungeon crawling browser game with a little more to it?" Of course it does. Say hello to TinyHack. An entire, tiny,…

Dungeon Siege 3 Getting Better PC Controls

Obsidian lead designer Nathaniel Chapman has stated in an interview with Eurogamer that the developers are currently working on a patch to improve the PC version of Dungeon Siege 3's keyboard and mouse controls. I've yet to play the PC version of DS3, but I was witness to Alec's agitated bellowing about the PC controls (among other things), so I'm going to go ahead an…

Impressions: Six Gun Saga

Indie development studio Cryptic Comet are, in some ways, the apple of RPS's eye. Seeking a return to the good old days of PC turn-based strategy, they created both Armageddon Empires and Solium Infernum, two of the best indie games of the last few years, and our write-up of a single Solium Infernum game is my favourite feature RPS has ever published. Imagine my thrill,…

Bricking It: Lego Universe Getting Free Trial

Whenever another MMO announces that it's changing to a free to play subscription model, the sound of rapid intakes of breath can be heard throughout corridors of Castle Shotgun like some panicked zephyr. We just can't believe it. There's an alternate reality out there where all MMORPGs are free to play and it's trying to break into ours. Hot on the heels of the City…

With Fire & Sword – Captain Smith, Pt. 4

My adventures in Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword arrive at their grand finale! Last we saw Captain Smith he was recovering from the indignity of being shanked clean off his horse by some sordid enemy of the state styling himself Barnabas the Squint. Dropping his servitude to the Polish kings like a hot stone, our hero heads East, towards the territory of the…
