Xbox Game Pass game list for PC, plus all new games for October 2019

New games are being added each month, though there has for the first time been one game removed from the service. We've got details of all…

The best RPGs on PC in 2019

Look! A ranking of the 50 best RPGs on PC. I know, you never asked for this, but here it is. It is 100 percent correct, we double-checked. The RPG is a broad and deep sea and fishing out the best games from its characterful waters is no easy task. But we are capable fishers on the good ship RPS, and know when to humanely…

Earlier this week, we revealed all the cool secret-spilling talks that will be flooding the Rezzed Sessions stage on the Thursday and Friday of this year's EGX, but now it's time for a weekend double whammy. From designing interactive live action game Erica to what it's like for London studio Mediatonic to work with the chaps over at Square Enix (plus a sneaky peek at…

Our first impressions of PlanetSide Arena’s chaotic team battle royale

Raise the purple flag, comrades. PlanetSide Arena came out yesterday, bringing some royale to PlanetSide 2’s vast battles in a spin-off game of jeeps and jetpacks. Its big thing is that everyone has a quad in their back pocket, but another major draw are the big 12-person team battles. That’s in keeping with the scale of the bottomless futurewar, but is it as shooty and…

Podcast: Why we can’t stop playing Wilmot’s Warehouse

 You are handed a box. Inside, another hour of ceaseless chatter from three folks on the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. Oh no, where re you supposed to put this? Maybe it should go next to the knives in the "dangerous items" pile. Or you could store it beside the tennis rackets in "hobby equipment". Oh hell, let's just make a whole new…

We fed game characters into a ‘neural net’ and it told us who they were with an astonishing 15% accuracy

Those of you chained to the churning wheel of the internet might have seen this facial recognition algorithm thingo doing the rounds. It's called ImageNet Roulette, and it's basically a website where you feed in a photo of your human face and see what the cybergods of our terrible future make of you. But it's probably not safe to show the neurohive your real face.…

Podcast: It’s a family thing

 "Family is all", a wise man once said. And then he half-drowned his nephew in a bucket of ice water, but let's forget about that bit. The sentiment is what's important. Families can be good and bad, dysfunctional or helpful. This is as true in videogames as in life. So that's what we're podcasting about this week. The brothers, mothers, aunts and cousins we…

Life Is Strange 2: Episode 4 verdict-o-chat

Caution: Spoilers, duh. Brendan: Hello, Alice. This is going to come as a shock but listen, you’ve been in a coma. Incredible I know, but while you were unconscious Life Is Strange 2 released the fourth episode of its road-tripping choice-o-rama, and now that you’re back in conscious reality I’d like to table a discussion on what the hell happened after the explosion on that…

RPS Verdict: Streets Of Rogue

Four weeks ago, in the disgusting heat of old August, we told you we can’t stop playing the chaos-fuelled micro-muckabout Streets Of Rogue. And since then we've not stopped banging on about it. It's sort of embarrassing. We spoke to its creator, we praised its tabletop-ish freedom, and we enjoyed having a totally normal one. But listen, we’ve got to move on. It turns out…

After Blair Witch, what other horror movies are worth turning into games?

Blair Witch, a movie about a man standing quietly in a corner, has been given the horror game treatment. The first-person spook ‘em up is out today, and it's about you and a dog becoming victims of found-footage scariness. But let’s be real, the videogame industry’s hunger for bygone horror franchises will not be sated by one former cop and his dog. No. Luckily, we…
