Podcast: The year 2018 is sinking and only 3 games can be saved

 Look out. The year 2018 is going down in a storm. There are hundreds of games aboard, running, jumping, trying their best to survive the maelstrom. But there’s only one tiny lifeboat, and only enough room for three games. It falls on the sorry shoulders of the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, to decide which trio of games clamber onto the life raft…

Planetside Arena is another battle royale from Daybreak

The sci-fi generals of Planetside 2’s never-ending conflict will be waging a new kind of war early next year. Planetside Arena is a battle royale shoot-the-lads that will launch as a full game on January 29, developers Daybreak are telling everyone today. It’s going to have a shrinking battleground, reworked guns, spacebucks, jetpacks, orbital strikes and big group matches that see 250 boots-on-the-ground shooting at…

Have You Played… Doom VFR?

As one of the few people who have enough room for a VR setup in their own home, it seems like madness that Bethesda supported the format as much as they did. While other efforts were ports of existing games, retrofitted to have HTC Vive support, Doom VFR was the only one of the three games to be specifically designed with VR in mind. It's also one…

Druidstone: The Secret Of The Menhir Forest is making me take RPG battles seriously

The last thing I was expecting Druidstone: The Secret Of The Menhir Forest to remind me of was a deck-builder. Not least because it doesn't feature any decks. And yet, there's something about this deeply tactical isometric RPG, from Legend Of Grimrock's creators, that contains the same spirit of gradually gaining a deeper and more refined understanding of a limited set of tools, through repeated…

Have You Played… Battle Chef Brigade?

Battle Chef Brigade is really good. You should play it, especially if you like JRPGs or cooking or food in general. If tossing ingredients into a pot in something like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild scorched your… Bokoblin… horns(?) then this game is for you.

Have You Played… Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments?

There is a moment in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments where the detective has to identify a brand of cigar. “This scent is familiar to me, but in order to recognise it, I must combine my associations into one picture,” he says. You find yourself swivelling a stink cloud, aligning its wafting lines into a hidden image. Problem is, Holmes’ nose deals in broad stereotypes…

How one Vilmonic player cracked the genome of artificial life

"I've discovered that sexual reproduction in Vilmonic is extremely difficult." Victoria wasn't happy with her fungaloids. She'd combined the genes from two mushrooms, but the results were disappointing: no matter what she tried, the results were mostly "non-viable life forms." Little did Victoria know that the next day, not only would those fungi be flourishing - she'd have written her name in their D.N.A.

Steam Charts: Christmas Miracle Edition

I don't what is this? How many? Are we sure we're in the right charts? This is definitely the Steam Charts, where the mad-brained broken people just buy the same four games over and over and over? Because something is up. People have only bought the same three games over and over!

Have You Played… Hidden Folks?

Hidden Folks *bling!* is a hidden object game that's *whooooosh!* immensely satisfying to play yourself *thwip!* but an absolute nightmare for anyone else to listen to *boing!* That's because *pfftttt* as you may have guessed *thwap!* every single click results in a *plink!*, *zip!* and the occasional *dingalingaling!* as you poke and prod its giant Where's Wally canvas (or Waldo, for the yanks out there)…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for finding new people to play board games with, because your new housemates insist that anything beyond Anomia is "too much". You can read the best writing about videogames from the past week too, if you insist. On Eurogamer, Wesley Yin-Poole spoke to the Fallout 76 roleplayers who are determined to wring fun out of a game that's been almost universally panned. They…

Priceless Play – 7 December 2018

It's December now, and I've already burned through a barrage of Netflix-original Christmas romantic comedies. To be fair, it's not just the holiday season that puts me into the romcom spirit but it is a good catalyst. Whether it's You've Got Mail, When Harry Met Sally, Groundhog Day or The Holiday and The Christmas Prince, hook me up to an IV and put the popcorn…

What are we all playing this weekend?

Christmas is coming! You haven't bought enough presents yet! The ones you have bought are rubbish! Your family are all going to say terrible things about you behind your back! Auntie Linda thinks you're even more despicable than Cousin Gertrude! Pfft, leave those eggnags to their traditions. You? You deserve to wrap yourself up in a lovely warm videogame. But which one will you be…
