Feature: Things are getting scarier around here.

Priceless Play – 19 October 2019

Hey Priceless Pals: welcome back to this corner's celebration of all things spooky, scary, and Halloween. Last week was a kind introduction to the reason for the season: spooky stories to play in the dark. Well, we're still riding that spooky rather than scary vein, but I've got to say: these games are scarier than last week's. I am a fan of the creeping, gnawing…

Crusader Kings 2 is free now

To start their annual fanfest PDXCON off with a bang (or at least an "Ooh!"), Paradox are now offering Crusader Kings 2 for free. It seems to be free forever? [Update: yes, it is.] If you've not yet tried to form your own medieval dynasty and found yourself undone by intrigue, backstabbing, and your own damn foolishness, you're missing out. Expansions are not included in…

Observer and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare are this week’s Epic Games Store giveaways

It's Thursday again, meaning its time for Epic's ongoing cycle of free games to tick over once again. This week's offerings are grimy cyberpunk horror Observer and bizarre spin-off Alan Wake's American Nightmare. That'll be that sorted for some low-lit thrills, then. As per, you've only got seven days to grab these freebies before they slink back into the shadows from whence they came.

Apex Legends will let you practice without pressure on the Firing Range

You've just dropped into a warzone with 59 vicious murderers. But hold up, where's your trusty Wingman? What's this, a charge rifle? What does that do? Worse, both your teammates nicked your mains, and you're dropping as Caustic. Bloody hell, how does this gassy doctor play? Before you know it, you've been booted back to the main menu with a bang. Rubbish. All that fuss…

Feature: Spooky - not scary.

Priceless Play – 12 October 2019

These days I love horror. However, I haven't always been a fan of all things spooky, scary, and skeleton-related. There was a brief period of time (I call this time "childhood") where even catching so much as a glimpse of a horror film would give me nightmares. Then my older brother brought home the game Fatal Frame. As the neighbourhood kids and I watched him…

Fortnite teases a clean slate with leaks for Fortnite: Chapter 2

Fortnite's had a good run. Since an admittedly awkward 2017 launch, it's become this cultural behemoth, completely unparseable yet unstoppably popular. But it's acquired some bloat over those two years - Map locations have vanished, reappeared and warped in and out. Weapons and gimmicks have floated in and out of an interdimensional vault, a vault intimately tied to the battle royale's ongoing plot. That's plenty…

Surviving Mars is now free on the Epic Games Store

The latest game giveaway on the Epic Games Store is Surviving Mars, 2018's city-builder about raising Martian colonies from dust. Yes, absolutely this process involves a large number of potatoes. The Space Race expansion is free too, as is the wee musical Marsvision Song Contest DLC (sadly just more soundtrack songs, not an actual contest - I wish!). You've got one week to get onboard…

After eight years, Murder Dog IV faces justice on Mac

Court is back in session. The case? The vanishing of dozens of 32-bit Mac games from Apple's operating system. Now, we've been told these are due to so-called "compatibility issues". And yet, a killer canine just made its way to MacOS after eight years off the grid, seemingly unaffected by these disappearances. Your honour, I believe this must be more than mere coincidence. I call…

Treasures await in Apex Legends’s newly-opened vaults

If you've been happily sliding and shooting your way across Apex Legends's new map this past week, you've no doubt noticed some tantalising secrets tucked away in certain nooks and crannies. A captain's bounty of glistening golden chestplates and helmets, paralysing quantities of purple attachments and phoenix kits, all kept just out of reach by a door on a timer. Well, my plundering friends, today…

Ubisoft’s Rabbids Coding is a free game teaching programming basics

A confession: I think Rabbids are great. I am delighted when Ubisoft's daffy rabbits do something foolish then shout "BWAAAHH!" (I assume it is the same joy many others feel with Minions.) I would like to poke one in the belly, and would fully understand if it bit me. I like the former Rayman antagonists so much that they can lead me to things I…

Feature: Free games of the week, short and sweet.

Priceless Play – 5 October 2019

Hello? Is this thing on? It's good to be back! I took a handful of weeks off to write exams (thank you all for your well-wishes!), and now I am returned to the RPS feeding tube of content. I'm poised and ready with my itch.io firehose, looking forward to blasting y'all week after week with those sweet, sweet video games. In my weeks off, my…

Minit is this week’s free adventure on the Epic Games Store

Okay, sixty seconds on the clock, let's go: Monochrome adventure Minit is the Epic Games Store's free game for the week. Solve the mystery of the sword factory, collect photographs, grab some coffee and listen to an old man ramble by the sea in this delightful little adventure game with a lethal twist. Every 60 seconds you drop dead and begin the cycle anew. But…

Dice-rolling dungeon diver Solasta: Crown Of The Magister gets a demo

Solasta: Crown Of The Magister understands something fundamentally important about this medium of ours. Games can be so many things, but sometimes I just want to bash goblins with an axe. While I've become a bit fussier with my tastes in my mid-twenties, I'll always have a soft spot for the time I spent building daft wee Neverwinter Nights 2 adventure modules over an easter…

So hot it’s cool, so cool it’s hot: Apex Legends’s new map and new season arrive today

Apex Legends's new map, World's Edge, is a packing nightmare. Lava fields on one side, ice floes on the other, and I can't imagine that middle ground is anything but muggy and miserable. What am I supposed to bring? Do I wear a jacket or jorts? It's a bloody gorgeous vacation hotspot, though. I can't say I'm surprised those murderous rascals are settling in here…

Magic: The Gathering enters the free-to-play Arena today

I've always been a little terrified of Magic: The Gathering. Not the game itself, mind. The lifestyle. I've never been in the home of a Magic player where old cards weren't spilling from every drawer, scattered on every floor. In one, they had enough dud cards to make a beautiful tree collage right up the side of the living room wall. Beautifully horrifying, that. I'll…

Feature: I AM THE ELECTRIC POSEIDON

Ecosystem has burst my mind, and you could be playing it right now

I had a bunch of other things to write about today, but I’ve shoved it all aside because my PC just reinvented the concept of fish, and you need to know about it. This isn’t just an “ooh, this looks interesting” post; I’ve got proper weird street evangelist excitement about what I’ve just been playing, and I simply have to share it. It’s not a…

KFC’s dating sim, I Love You, Colonel Sanders!, is free and out now

You might be thinking that a dating sim set in a culinary school, where you try to date KFC’s Colonel Sanders, is a bit out of left field, but I’d argue that it’s the perfect setting. Fried chicken is sensual: the nibbling, the bones, the wet wipes. The only possible excuse you can have in not finding yourself overcome with lust at the sight of…

Adventures With Anxiety is free and good

Adventures With Anxiety is a free work of interactive fiction by Nicky Case. It's about Sergeant Jack Magnum, elite leader of the deadly facepunch squad. Or it's about anxiety, whatever. You play as the anxiety. It's a little red dog that clings to its human like a raincoat, but detaches when it detects danger it must warn them about. It'll take about half an hour…

Neo Cab has a demo now, and launches in October

You can today hop behind the wheel of the final human-driven taxis in our near-future in a new demo for Neo Cab. That's the chat-o-driver we've cooed at a few times since its announcement in 2018, and it's finally almost here. As well as releasing the demo, developers Chance Agency today announced a release date of October 3rd. Have a peek in the new trailer…
