Feature: Mr Jeans says keep buying denim

Podcast episode 119: the fashion in games special

Today we hit the yearly milestone of deciding it was finally cold enough to turn the heating on. You hold out as long as you can, obviously. Not made of money. Perhaps we could have lasted longer if we'd had very fashionable coats made out of the skin of a rare bat monster, such as you can hunt and kill in Monster Hunter: World. Yes,…

Feature: Godfall is impressively dedicated to the look

At last, a game that is 100% about the aesthetic

Godfall came out earlier this month. It is an ARPG looter-shooter, except the combat is almost entirely melee, so its a, uh, hacker-packer? But what it really is, is a game that is more dedicated to the look than any I have ever played. I've been diving in and out of it for the past couple of weeks and it is so beautiful, and so…

Feature: Playing with a cat = nourishment for the soul

Have you played… with a cat?

If ever there were a reason to test the boundaries of what it means to be a "game retrospective", it must surely be that I get to put my cat's adorable mug on the front page of RPS.This is Kira. Her markings make it look like she's wearing an Incredibles mask.

Feature: Avoid work with some relaxing simulated work

The best management games on PC

2020 was a pretty good year for management games, but nothing released in the past 12 months has impressed us enough to squeeze its way into our best management games list. Don't worry, though - it's only because there are already so many classics to choose from. If you're looking for something to sink into over the holidays, check out our picks below.

Feature: Can't wait till someone invents a Rules Lawyer AI

Baldur’s Gate 3 gave me new respect for my real life Dungeon Master

No matter how intelligent a game’s AI is, how immersive the story turns out to be, or how believable the characters are, it can never actually simulate the thing that makes Dungeons & Dragons a great game: human shenanigans. I’ve adored my time with

Feature: A game that warms my cockles.

Have You Played… Hearthstone?

I bloody love Hearthstone. Every time a collectible card game comes out, people come together to agree that this one, absolutely, definitely, is The Hearthstone Killer. But it never is. The ease with which you can pick up Hearthstone and understand the basic mechanics, win conditions, and strategies makes it the most welcoming CCG for those new to the genre. Honestly though, the potential depth…

Feature: If Cyberpunxsutawney Phil sees the leak, we get six more weeks of delay

The Cyberpunk 2077 stream leak is honestly v. boring and not worth watching

Mmm, delicious leaks, with which we may make leak and potato soup. Physical copies of Cyberpunk 2077 have made it to retailers, which means leaks are now inevitable as disgruntled low-wage employees chance their arm and liberate copies from Bezos's loving grasp. Once such maverick even streamed 20 minutes of it on their PS4. Now, I know that, perversely, the title of this post will…

Feature: Quaking in my boots

Have You Played… Chasm: The Rift?

If you’ve heard of Chasm: The Rift, I salute you. If you haven’t, I don’t blame you. Released way back in 1997, it's a first person shooter which was meant to compete with Quake. Quite a tough ask, to be honest. But it does have one thing over id Software’s classic - jester monsters.Specifically, lizard people, who are also jesters, but have saw blades for…

Feature: A surprise hit!

It’s Hitman’s 20th anniversary, so here are 20 facts about the silly stealth sim

Hitman: Codename 47 was released 20 years ago today. In all that time, IO Interactive have crafted an entertaining seven-game series (not including spin-offs), with the eighth aiming for the heart in January 2021. The subject matter might be grim, but from the very first game, IO Interactive were always happy to fold information and easter eggs into their immersive sim (don't @ me) to…

Feature: Nailed it

I am obsessed with V’s manicure in the Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox footage

In the most recent Night City Wire (which to my eyes seemed a pretty obvious attempt to reassure everyone that the current gen console builds work totally fine, pls don't cancel your Xbox preorders) showed large chunks of a mission called Automatic Love. It's the most recent peek at the game in action that we've seen, ahead of the delayed launch on December 10th and…

Feature: Feat. two people who don't know loads about JRPGs

Podcast episode 118: the best JRPGs special

I don't want anyone to be disappointed, but Nate is away this week so you've got an Alice 'n' Matthew special for The Electronic Wireless Show podcast, since I couldn't draft in a third body in time. Nevertheless, this week we had a grand old time, albeit one with less chat about animals. In fact, we manage to talk about games quite a lot! Historically…

Feature: Hack the planet!

As Cyberpunk 2077 is running late, here’s a broad spread of cyberpunky fun

Now that Cyberpunk 2077 is delayed again until December 10th, what are you to do? You've grown a lurid blue mohawk, your leather jacket is almost worn in, and your prescription mirrorshades are ready for collection at Specsavers - but for what? You might as well use this time to explore all games cyberpunky, from edgy and nihilistic griping about how the future sucks to…

Have You Played… Borderlands 3?

Borderlands 3 is a storage vessel, a cryochamber which holds fondly remembered school crazes in its frozen heart. Crack it open and you’ll smell a fart and hear the sounds of Skrillex’s seminal dubstep track Bangarang. It's new tech that clings on to the past. It's a middle-aged man who is down with the kids. If being down with the kids is wearing your jeans…

Feature: These boots are made for generating income

Why is everyone making terrible trainers for their video games?

Right now, as I'm sure you're aware, none of us are allowed to touch anything with our hands, in case we spread viral loads from yesterday's grubby front door to today's gaping mouth hole. Many of us are adapting to this by instead using our feet to take on many everyday hand tasks; I am typing this with my long and dextrous toes. Feet: they're…

Feature: Surviving 2020 deserves a reward

The best survival games on PC

It's no longer the most urgent gold rush in PC games, but survival games continue to be regularly released, and older games continue to be regularly updated. It's only natural then that we've taken some time out from foraging for edible berries to update our list of the best survival games for 2020.

Feature: One mired in negative stereotypes

The mainstream FPS only knows one kind of Latina

I cried when I first saw Sombra at the 2016 BlizzCon opening keynote. I remembered feeling uncomfortable as a child when I saw Tetra transform into Princess Zelda in The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker; I saw how the change was framed as an upgrade from an unremarkable brown pirate to an ethereal pale princess worth Herculean and Hyrulian efforts alike to save. Any pride…
