Feature: Games for troubled times

Priceless Play – 28 March 2020

Right. Well. It's a bizarre situation we find ourselves in (and I do hope you are in), and I am here to provide you with your weekly dose of free games. I can't deny that it's rather surreal to turn on my video game machine (that's my computer) and behave as though everything is some semblance of normal. While this routine remains the same, so…

Feature: One Off The List

The most satisfying physics in PC games

An obscenely rich teenager throws his VR controller across the room in a fit of blind panic while playing Half-Life: Alyx. It leaves the window of his bedroom at 5m/s. It falls 10m vertically and hits his neighbour’s greenhouse, smashing the glass. How many metres did the controller travel horizontally before coming to a stop in the tomatoes? Use a kinematic formula to determine your…

The 10 most exciting indie games from Rezzed Digital 2020

As you may have noticed, we've been throwing a Rezzed Digital party over the last few days, and were inundated with demo and preview builds for a whole plethora of interesting indie games. We weren't able to play them all - but we played a lot. As is our way, a few of us got together to share our pick of the bunch, which coincidentally…

Feature: Panzer Corps 2 reconnoitred

The Flare Path: Unhexceptional

What do Slitherine's latest piece of hexiana and the coronavirus crisis have in common? They both invite comparisons with WW2, but, on close inspection, bear little resemblance to the 1939-45 conflict. Panzer Corps 2 is as stout as a Sturmtiger and perfectly capable of accelerating clock hands and monopolising cerebra, but loyalty to its predecessors means most of the time it feels more like a…

Feature: In league with yourself

How emotional investment in League Of Legends lets you be your best and worst self

Recently, the MOBA juggernaut League Of Legends introduced a new feature, called Eternals. Billed as a way to “highlight your accomplishments and prove your mastery”, they are essentially stat-trackers for individual champions that you play, allowing you to document both basic accomplishments such as your lifetime number of takedowns on your chosen character, as well as more champion-specific achievements, such as the number of kills…

Feature: What it means for Half-Life 3 and where VR goes from here

We talk Half-Life: Alyx with Valve in “the meanest interview ever”

It's taken 13 years, but we finally have a new Half-Life game. It may not be the long-awaited Half-Life 3, but as you've probably seen from our Half-Life: Alyx review, Valve's first foray into virtual reality shows they're a developer that are still very much at the top of their game. But Half-Life: Alyx isn't just the work of a talented team of developers. It's…

Feature: Come tut at Turing

Have You Played… The Turing Test?

The Turing Test is an experiment where you determine if an AI can pass itself off as human. You get a person to talk to computers and humans, over text, and see if they can determine which is which. The idea is interesting, but flawed. The Turing Test is also a first-person puzzler made by Bulkhead Interactive, and it is the same.

Feature: Keep on truckin'

How American Truck Simulator recreates the grand American west

Oh, to visit Spokane on a bright summer morning. Bakersfield, Albuquerque, Reno and Salem. The evening sun shining across the surface of the I-10. In these locked-down times, American Truck Simulator is a chance to tour America, or at least its western edge, running from Washington in the north down to California in the south, and over to Utah and New Mexico in the east.…

Feature: Apples are awesome though?

Modding Stardew Valley to make it feel like Animal Crossing

I am not myself an Animal Crossing fan (or a "Crossie", as I believe they like to be called), but I know the game is big news at the moment, because approximately the entire rest of the RPS staff have been going on about it. They're all at it, and it's like people talking in a secret language I don't understand. Someone please buy and…

Feature: Who needs a show floor?

Come and watch Rezzed Digital, featuring Rhianna Pratchett, indie games, The Oxventure, and more!

It's Rezzed time, baybee! And sure, we might have pushed the physical event to the summer, but that doesn't mean that we and the Rezzed team aren't still dedicated to bringing you some great talks, entertainment, and the best of the best indie games, as rays of light beamed straight into your computer box machines! Yes, that's right: we're going digital. Starting tomorrow, Thursday the…

Animal Crossing players are making outfits inspired by their favourite PC games

Over here in PC land we normally wouldn't get to write about Nintendo's cutesy island life sim, Animal Crossing, but I've found a wonderful reason to bring it before your eyes today. Animal Crossing: New Horizons lets you design all manner of lovely clothing items and pictures for you to display somewhere in your town, and players have been using it to create outfits inspired…

Feature: We built this city! We built this city on bread and cheese!

After its recent update, lovely city-builder Foundation has never been better

It's been a while since I played early access medieval city-builder Foundation (shamed by the unintentional yet embarrassingly forced starvation of my villagers). January brought with it v1.5, probably one of the most substantial updates yet. Increased strain has been put upon my villagers and their supply chains, but I still find it one of the most relaxing city-builders I've ever played - surely worth…

Feature: Blast from the past

Have You Played… Some Distant Memory?

When I first played Some Distant Memory about a month ago, I would have said it was like a futuristic point and click version of Gone Home. In it, you play a mech'd-up archaeologist called Zal, who stumbles on an old house from before The Collapse, an apocalyptic event that sent the world into disarray and left only tiny pockets of humanity intact. During the…

Feature: Nic & Nate make classic space mistakes

The RPS Verdict – Stellaris: Federations

Nate: The galaxy has been remade once again. Space opera strategy extravaganza Stellaris has a new DLC out, called Federations, and a massive free patch that overhauls a greater-than-usual number of the game's systems. Both the DLC and the patch focus hard on diplomacy, and so I thought it'd be a good idea to rope in a fellow space obsessive and see if, working together,…

Feature: Living space

We talked to Eve Online’s devs about faction warfare, Loyalty To Lowsec and other seasonal updates

CCP, the developers of the famously complicated space MMO Eve Online, have taken a new approach to their updates in recent months. They've split each year into three-month 'quadrants', during which they'll release smaller, more regular features and changes along a common theme - not unlike 'seasons' as used by many other online games. The first of these quadrants, titled Fight Or Flight, began this…

Feature: Spyder spyder, burning bright

Experience a burst of pure joy at this teeny tiny spider game

We must experience wonderfulness where we can these days, and last night I experienced squealing excitement like I haven't for a while when I saw footage of an in-development platformer about a tiny spider with laser eyes. The video in question was shared by developer Riley Neville, aka Sbug Games. You may have played Sbug's previous game STAB STAB STAB!, a physics-y couch multiplayer game…

Feature: An adventure with helicopters

Call Of Duty: Warzone’s mid-match missions are great, let me show you why

We've been fighting to be the last person standing for years now, so new battle royale games have to bring something fresh to the war table. After largely bouncing off Blackout, I didn't think I'd find that in Call Of Duty: Warzone. Then me and my friends found a helicopter and a Bounty Contract, and I was delighted to discover I was wrong.
