This week, the collective kicked off their latest collaborative project, the Haunted PS1 Madvent Calendar, a delicious selection of 24 bloody treats unlocked over the 24 days running up to Christmas. Trust me, there's no chocolate waiting behind those blurry, low-res…

The Wonderful 101 now has a two-hour demo where you can play as Bayonetta

In my head, The Wonderful 101: Remastered has only been out for a month or so. In reality, it came out back in May, and I'm not quite sure how that happened. 2020 continues to amaze with its ability to warp all perception of time. Oh well. Platinum Games' weird superhero-morphing adventure has a free two-hour demo out now on Steam, so perhaps that will…

What new gaming subscription service would you want?

One-off purchases are out, and recurring payments are in. Subscription services are hot again, with publishers from EA to Ubisoft giving access to their games for monthly fees, Stadia charging for better cloud gaming, Fortnite considering fashion subs, and so many companies threatening to send boxes of tat to your door. So few seem worth it. But I'm curious: if you could create a new…

Worms Rumble open beta is battling royale this weekend

What happens when the turn-based tactical violence of Worms becomes a real-time shooter? See for yourself in the free Worms Rumble open beta weekend, which started today. This latest Worms spin-off is a 32-player side-on shooter with all the usual wacky weapons, throwing down in deathmatch and battle royale modes.

TokTik ColorPick is probably the opposite of watching paint dry

In fact, there's a good argument to make that TikTok ColorPick is the act of watching paint get wetter. Inspired by the effortlessly daft "#guessthepaint" videos of TikTok artist Christian M Hull, Tiny Islands creator David King has created an interactive toy for guessing your own paint without shelling out a fortune at B&Q. Hey, if it's free and passes the time this evening, it…

Feature: In fairness, the menu can often be the best bit

Menu New Game+ is a game of fake menus that makes infinite RimWorld patch notes

I recently talked to a group of people who were unfamiliar with games, about what games are. It's always a bit weird doing that, because the answer is often "I mean, IDK. What are 'sports'? Now please don't ask me if they're art." See also: when is a door not a door?As ever, though, weird indie games provide the answer to most questions, if you…

Fallout 76 is free to play this week

It feels weird to write something like, 'Celebrate the Fallout bombs dropping this week!' Because it's a bit dark and gloomy, and 'celebrate' certainly feels like the wrong word. But hey, that's exactly what Bethesda are doing. October 23rd is the day in Fallout lore where the world went bang and those lucky (or unlucky) enough to have a place in a vault disappeared underground.…
