The whole Half-Life story is free to play on Steam right now

It has come to my attention that some people have not played the Half-Life games, to which I can only say: mate, I think you might really like it. Valve will soon return to the series after thirteen years with Half-Life: Alyx in March, and ahead of that they're inviting everyone to catch up on the story so far. From now until the launch of…

Feature: Games to grow with

Priceless Play – 18 January 2020

My ten-year high school reunion was last year. I didn't go, obviously, because I am too cool and also I live something like 3,000 miles away from my old high school. I don't know about you, but I don't super love remembering who I was in high school. It's a truly terrifying time: the searing tension between becoming an independent being and desperately needing reassurance…

Sundered is the latest Epic Games Store giveaway

Thursday is freebie day on the Epic Games Store, with a new game rotating in to be free for keepsies for the next week. This time it's Sundered, the hand-drawn metroidvania from the studio behind Jotun. Our former John (RPS in peace) declared it "a completely wonderful metroidvania" in his Sundered review so do have a look.

Feature: For it is a human number; it is 40

40 of the best: RPS’ finest reads from 2019

Look, there's only so original you can be with a best-of-the-last-year feature. At the end of the day, a post like this is little more than a rickety bicycle, creaking under the weight of the glistening Content Ogre that rides it. Still, even an ogre's bike needs a decent paintjob, so here's the gimmick: the year is 2020, and 20 plus 20 is 40. So…

Feature: Begin 2020 with confidence and verve

Priceless Play – 04 January 2020

We have entered 2020. We survived that entire monolith of a decade. I don't know what 2019 was like for you, but I think I can say with a degree of certitude that I have had better years. Despite the apocalyptic politics, the extreme weather (incl. fires, floods, and earthquakes oh my), and the continued existence of Twitter.com, time is still marching defiantly onward. Admirable,…

Darksiders, Darksiders II, and Steep are free for a week on the Epic Game Store

It never ends. First there are the Xmas sales, full of gaming turkey for me to fill up on. Then my aunt showed up with Lee Carvallo’s Modern Warfare. And now, post-New Year, the Epic Game Store has just thrust Darksiders Warmastered Edition, Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition, and Steep into my arms. They’re free from now until Jan 9. I hope the sales are still…

Don’t forget the Christmas tradition of playing Dracula Cha Cha

As tradition dictates, it is time to play Dracula Cha Cha. You've doubtless already played Skeal this month and been reminded of the power, the pleasure, and the pain we remember at this time of year. Now you're ready for Dracula to collect presents, dance the twist against Zombie Santa, use his Dracula Karate on snowmen, shoot nutcracker soldiers, and ride through Venice on the…

Red Desert Render is inspired by a Red Dead Redemption 2 glitch

Inspired by a journey glitching beyond the world boundary of Red Dead Redemption 2, Ian MacLarty (the maker of Action Painting Pro and Catacombs Of Solaris) has created his own weird desert adventure to share with us all. Red Desert Render is a rolling landscape to explore with a few tasks to achieve and glitches to find. It's pleasant enough as a walking simulator, and…

Feature: Go west

Priceless Play – 14 December 2019

As I am writing this right now, I still exist in that dreamlike anticipation prior to the UK general election. I don't know yet what the results will bring, but I sure am tense about it. And so, it has been helpful to delve into an eensy bit of escapism. Video games do an alright job with taking one's mind off things, and today I…

Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us is free on Epic for the next week

If you've not played The Wolf Among Us and so don't quite get why folks are excited about last night's news that the sequel is back in development, good news: you can now get the original for free. It's the latest freebie offered by the Epic Games Store to overcome animosity, and it's a good'un. We declared Telltale's episodic urban fairytale detective story the best…

Carrion and a dozen other games have demos for The Game Awards

The Game Awards may be a pointless set of trophies thrown like bath bombs into a big tub of adverts, but one nice thing to come from them is a big blast of demos for upcoming games. For the next 48 hours, The Game Festival on Steam will offer demos of thirteen games including System Shock remake, gutsy platformer Carrion, and the self-explanatory Skatebird. This…

Feature: It's the most wonderful time of the year

Priceless Play – 7 December 2019

Year after year, there are many hallmarks which signal the nearing holidays (aside from the shortening daylight hours and the date on the calendar). Snowy romantic comedies on TV. Office cookie swaps. Mulled wine, Christmas markets, my friends' annual Hannukah donut party, and an increasing sense of obligation to return to my parents' house to see family. There aren't many games I'd be quick to…

This is your annual reminder to play Skeal this Christmas

Miseltoe and wine. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Hanging up your stockings on the wall. Children playing, having fun. Giving someone your heart. All these and more are sung about as signs Christmas is coming, yet these ancient tunes miss the greatest modern marker of Christmas: me posting about Skeal, reminding you to play this classic-to-be. Wrap up warm, strap on your skis, and…

Feature: Games to play when feeling low

Priceless Play – 30th November 2019

I have been feeling a bit low lately. It's likely a combination of the season (where did the sun go?), drop in temperature (yes it's 11°C in Los Angeles, and my home is built to get hot air out of it!), and another year coming to an end. 2019 really didn't have too much to offer me and I am psyched to see it go.…

Rayman Legends is free on the Epic Games Store this week

Come one, come all. Epic Games have spun the big wheel of free games once again - this week, Rayman Legends is running, jumping and slapping up the store for nary a penny. A rhythm-driven romp through some lovingly drawn chaos, it's one of the best platformers on PC - and you can pick it up for free until next Friday.

Deathgarden shuffles towards the grave, but not without a celebration

Behaviour Interactive ceased development on the brutal survival shooter, Deathgarden: Bloodharvest Friday after nearly half a year of triage. The makers of Dead By Daylight are punting the idea of a dour funeral, though. Instead, every feature the team have been working on was pushed out the door for players to enjoy. It's Deathgarden: Bloodharvest's wake, and everyone is invited because the game has now…
