Feature: The most wholesome unwholesome free games

Priceless Play – 30 May 2020

Ok. I'll bite. What's a "wholesome game"? I watched the Wholesome Direct a few days ago, which gave me 53 examples of wholesome games, and I'm still not quite sure I know what falls under the label. Here are a few components of my working definition: wholesome games are nonviolent, often star anthropomorphised animals, and are soundtracked by ukuleles or a delicate piano line. They're…

Feature: Well?

What are we all playing this weekend?

E3 season is almost upon us, and E3 is not here to greet us. Instead, it's sending a load of its mates out to distract and entertains us while it shouts down from its bedroom that it's almost ready, it'll be out soon, just another year. In the meantime, oh! E3's mate is about to perform his party trick.What are you playing this weekend? Here's…

Feature: "Storytelling in a BR game is kind of our thing."

Respawn on storytelling, lore, and Season 11 of Apex Legends

Online multiplayer games aren't usually designed to tell stories. For the most part, they're built around their competitive nature, with titbits of lore to help establish a unique world for players to get invested in. However, the line between these online games and more story driven experiences is starting to blur, as games like Apex Legends begin to throw more narrative into the mix. Storytelling…

The Flare Path Talks to a Test Pilot

Near the top of my ‘Things to do when lockdown ends’ list is ‘Visit my local public library’. Obviously I'm missing its extensive history and transport sections, and the profound feeling of well-being that comes from being surrounded by the printed word, but there are other draws too. You can meet very interesting people in libraries. People like John Williams.I struck up a conversation with…

Feature: The Sims 4 but make it fashion

The 20 best Sims 4 CC on PC

Listen, we're not having a pop at the base game version of The Sims 4, but you have to admit that it doesn't offer everything you might want. It would be impossible for it to service every whim and desire you asked of it for! But still, sometimes you'll be fooling around in build and buy mode, or Create A Sim, and just wish that…

Podcast: our most wanted games this summer

The big physical summer expos all got cancelled, but instead we have a whole load of great digi-vents to replace them. Looking at the schedule, it seems the Summer Of Games is going on until approximately next January. We're in a bit of a hopeful mood for this week's podcast, so the gang discuss their most anticipated upcoming releases, as well as their most anticipated…

The 9 most extreme sports in games

Football. Tennis. Conkers. What do these historic, reputable sports have in common, I ask you. That’s correct, they are not extreme enough. Please, quiet now. I am here to do the talking. Yes, there are sports videogames, your FIFAs and your Mario Tennises. But they do not fulfill the desire within all of us for the extreme, the radical, the pushing of it to the…

Feature: Michael Collins? In The Hound Pits?

Arkane’s Harvey Smith on why the pub in Dishonored is a perfect rebel base

Dunwall is renowned for its striking dystopian aesthetic, blending blinding walls of light with spindly steampunk stilt walkers. But the most memorable part of gorgeous action-assassin hit Dishonored has, for me, always been the boozer where you hang out with your pals between missions: The Hound Pits. It’s a lovely looking pub, for sure. But coming from Dublin, where subversive relics of independence like The…

What’s the state of DRM in 2020?

Back in the late 2000s, digital rights management - more commonly known as DRM - made itself difficult to ignore. CD copy protection programs such as SecuROM infamously limited the number of times players could install games like Bioshock on their PC, while Assassin’s Creed II required players to maintain a constant internet connection despite the fact it was a singleplayer game. At the time,…

Have You Played… Thimbleweed Park?

I know as much as the next gal that classic adventure games aren't for everyone. But if you were thinking of dipping your toe in the genre, Thimbleweed Park is a great place to start - because you're starting at the finish, almost. The game was created by Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, who worked on some of the most famous adventure games to come…

Elite Dangerous needs to make its fleet carriers worthwhile

Elite Dangerous finished a second beta test for its new fleet carriers this week. The giant player-owned ships are scheduled to appear in the main game sometime in June.I've been ruminating on it for a while now, and much as I like the idea, the reality so far has been distinctly underwhelming.

I am going to become a battery chicken farmer in Stardew Valley

I am not a very good Stardew Valley farmer. Really experienced players, who take their farming seriously, they know what's up. They make their own almanacs, they intensively farm pumpkins or sunflowers to get the best yeilds, and they know how to place sprinklers for peak watering efficiency. I do not know any of those things. My cruel predicament in Stardew is that really I…

Feature: Holmes is where the heart is

Have You Played… Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter

I am a particular fan of the title of this game, because it sounds like Holmes himself is the daughter in question. Like it was his nickname when he played rugby at school or something. Despite that, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter is a thoroughly enjoyable entry in Frogwares' saga of third-person detect 'em ups, notable for having good detecting elements, and also never having…

Feature: All your 2020 PC release dates in one handy list

New PC games coming out in 2020

With all the various E3-type events starting to kick off in earnest now, the number of new PC games coming out in 2020 is getting bigger and bigger with every passing week. As a result, I thought it would be a good time to give our list of 2020 PC release dates another chunky update to make sure you know exactly when all the biggest…

5 Minecraft Dungeons features that should be in Minecraft

Minecraft Dungeons may have borrowed very little from its parent game in terms of features, sticking largely to the blockbuster construction game's aesthetics instead, but that's not to say it hasn't given plenty back. While Dungeons was being developed, according to executive director David Nisshagen in my interview with him, its team came up with illagers, a.ka. angry squidwards, in order to provide a staple…

The 5 best but most terrifying Sims 4 challenges

My guess is that when you were a kid, right, you were one of two types. You either used your action figures to play out imaginative (if potentially weird) stories, or you picked one of them up and went "I bet I can make Lion-O's legs go in the splits so far that they fall off", before proceeding to test your hypothesis.Players of The Sims…
