PlanetSide 2 has added orbital strikes and massive warships

After several delays, PlanetSide 2's biggest update for years, Escalation, went live overnight.Players of the massive scale three-way sci-fi FPS will now have access to giant shields, orbital bombardments, tank airdrops, and the most exciting bit: carriers. You see the big fellers up there? You could be in one. Or, more likely, have to team up with enough people to take it down.

Feature: Cold Brains

Have You Played… Frozen Cortex?

We don't get enough simultaneous turn-based games. Frozen Cortex takes teams of somehow sleek-yet-chunky robots and makes them compete in a wisely stripped down derivative of Americaball. It's not as cruel as it may sound, and its amusing, gently satirical near future setting wisely keeps out of the way of the tactical sport fun.

Feature: Can't stand the reign

Yes, Your Grace review

I imagine death is anticlimactic for most people. Maybe even more so for kings. There you are, with your whole life's confusion and doubt and pain cooming to a head, everyone turning against you for unclear reasons, all your efforts accumulated at last, and you still just sort of... stop. After that, all you get is an image of a mildly sad, grey face, and…

Savage Vessels review

I did level four on my first go. That's my crown and none of you can take it. Level three was a bastard's hump and I struggled to get through it for hours, before I realised that I already had the supplies I needed to repair my ship. Those same supplies are also a requirement for the best weapons. That's just mean, man.Savage Vessels is…

Feature: Everything old is new again

Hijong Park’s 1980s-inspired arcade games deserve your attention

The games industry (and the games press) have always had a weird relationship with old games. From the open hostility of publishers in the 2000s to the overdone retro stylings of the 2010s, we remain in an uneasy entente with our ancient past. Many will insist that very old games were better. Others have played them since, and found them wanting. There is a way…

Corruption 2029 review

It would be so easy to call Corruption 2029 "Mutant Year Zero without mutants". That is, after all, the first impression it gives to probably anyone familiar with the same developers' irradiated manduck tales.MYZ had personality and atmosphere, and that helped carry it through its weaker parts. And here I once again come up against the question of how fair it is to judge a…

A remake of monster-moulding RPG Geneforge stormed it on Kickstarter

Clever RPG stalwarts Spiderweb Software have succesfully crowdfunded a remaster of Geneforge on Kickstarter in under 24 hours. They started the campaign on Wednesday, seeking a humble $30,000 dollars (£23,000). Their long-term goal is to freshen up the whole series, but that's a bridge for another time. 2002's Geneforge was the first of an interesting series of story-heavy RPGs, set in an original and carefully…

Have You Played… E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy?

E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy is a name so crap I can't even be bothered to mock it. And yet unlike 95% of crap names, I never forget it.EYE is one of my favourite games. It's a mess. There's so much wrong with it that I could probably slag it off for two full reviews, but I still like it too much.

5 games that prove friendship is better and more interesting than romance

"Is it friendship? Or is it something more?" goes a common sentiment, particularly on days like today, when we celebrate the anniversary of Captain Cook getting stabbed to death. Well, that's a stupid question, because there is nothing more than friendship.Games are, for once, not much worse than other media at depicting and exploring themes of friendship. In fact, some of the best stories about…

Former Starbreeze CFO Sebastian Ahlskog convicted of insider trading

Former Starbreeze Studios chief financial officer Sebastian Ahlskog was convicted of insider trading this Tuesday. This follows from Sweden's Economic Crime Authority seizing SEK 700,000 (roughly £55,300 or $72,100) from him in December 2018 while raiding the company's headquarters and at least one private home, under suspicion that he'd abused his position to profit from Starbreeze's financial troubles.

Activision Blizzard have pulled all their games from GeForce Now

Activision Blizzard have pulled all their games from the GeForce Now game streaming service, according to Nvidia. The service only launched in full last week, after two years in beta, and now none of its subscribers will be able to use it to play Blizzard's games. Sekiro will be missed, for one, as will Overwatch, and the Call Of Duty games. Nobody really wins here.

Feature: Probably NSFW?

Trim your bush in The Good Time Garden

Nudey entendre adventure The Good Time Garden is... well. If I say it's bizarrely sexual, you'll get the wrong idea. If I say it's disarmingly innocent, you'll get the wrong idea. If I say it's got a faintly "ooooh, saucy!" tone, even I'll want to dislike it, and I've just spent the last few minutes cackling with joy at it.It is all of those things,…

Feature: Music to slip off to

The best video game music to fall asleep to

Sleep and games are among my favourite things. Certainly they're the biggest occupiers of my time, and thanks to my collection of chronic ailments they often overlap. I have always struggled with sleep, you see. It doesn't happen regularly, nor when I invite it. It simply comes when it comes (I've tried whatever you're about to suggest, thanks), and I've learned that it's best to…

The RPS Temtem Pick ‘n’ Mix menu: what do your favourite Temtem taste like?

Everyone is playing Temtem, but no-one is saying it: they are clearly edible. But which of these visibly delicious sweets is the best for you?After analysis of internal business and laboratory notes, several interviews, and much research in the field, I'm pleased to present our first ever Temtem flavour guide.
