Digital adaptations of tabletop RPGs are still having a heyday, much to my personal delight. Owlcat Games are continuing on in that righteous work with a sequel to their 2018 RPG, Pathfinder: Kingmaker. There's little to know about Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous at this stage, least of all any hint at a release window, but Owlcat divulges a couple tidbits worth knowing with the…

My only personal memories of Rust are from its earliest days in 2013. I remember being bashed in the head with a rock by another player and then promptly ditching the weird survival sandbox that I found unfathomable. Rust has changed a lot since then and today it's changing a bit more with its first paid DLC: Instruments.

Game subscription services are everywhere these days but Humble Bundle have been doing this for a while. Their former service Humble Monthly is being replaced with the fresh-faced Humble Choice which comes with the ability to choose the games you get, but a higher price tag as well. The service launches today under its new name.

The XCOM and X-Com like Phoenix Point is out now and players seem to be having a good time tactically defending the world from monsters. You can find it on the Epic Store as planned but Xbox Game Pass subscribers are still waiting despite plans for the game to launch on both simultaneously. Snapshot Games say they "dropped the ball."

Get ready for more gear and more guns. The shoot 'em up and loot 'em up Borderlands 3 has its first actual campaign DLC coming on December 19th, called Moxxi's Heist of the Handsome Jackpot. You'll apparently be giving up vault hunting for Ocean's-style casino heists by wrecking Handsome Dead Jack's gaudy gambling den. Gearbox have released gameplay footage of the first 13 minutes of…

The other day I realised how long I'd spent in the Dota-verse. It was during my 50th hour of Dota Underlords, after 100 hours of Artifact and nearly 4000 in Dota 2. There are characters I have spent years with, albeit while treating them more as clusters of abilities than personalities. I've seen that world from half a dozen different angles, over the years, between…
Below is a list of ‘30 things wot av bin stolen or abducted’ (‘things’ is used in its broadest possible sense). Entries have been stripped of vowels and numbers and had any inter-word spaces repositioned*. For example, if Patty Hearst was present she might appear as PTT YHRST. Shergar would be SHRGR. *Hyphens are treated as spaces. Apostrophes are ignored.

After one bad launch for Red Dead Redemption 2 with its PC debut on Rockstar and Epic's stores in November, I had thought Rockstar might make the most of the second chance for a smooth launch presented by its belated Steam release last night. They have not. Along with the crashing and performance issues still suffered by all players, the Steam release seems to have…

There are a metric tonne of portrait mods for Stardew Valley. On Nexus Mods alone, there are 305. DCBurger's Portrait Mod is the most unique that I've seen but by the time I found it in 2018 it had already been removed by its creator. After two years away, DCBurger has returned to upload the original.
The Game Awards are just around the corner, a week from today on December 12th. The show's host and producer, Geoff Keighley, is running an Ask Me Anything on Reddit today where he confirms that there are "around 10 new games/projects" being revealed at the show. To his knowledge, none of them have been leaked yet.
The stylistically low-res game about snapping photos of little birds in your house has landed on itch.io today. Toripon 鳥ポン may be tiny but it's packed in some personality in the form of a bird-based social network where fake folks comment on your lovely bird snaps with eloquent appreciation like "Yaaasss."
If you have thus far delayed your wild west adventures because you don't care to use either Rockstar or Epic's store, your wait is over. One month after debuting on PC, Red Dead Redemption 2 is sold on Steam too.
Euro Truck Simulator 2—or as I, an American, call it: unafforable vacation simulator—has a new region dropping today. The next expansion available for one of few games to rival The Sims for number of DLCs is headed to eastern Europe with the Road To The Black Sea.

You! Are the Crystal Gems! You'll always save the day! And if you think you can't, you'll have to stump up £10.40 for one of the Steven Universe characters Brawlhalla just added. Last night's update to the platform fighting game also introduced a new mode where you punch the opposing team to trap them in bubbles, as is Steven's wont. I haven't played much Brawlhalla…
Dragon Quest Builders 2 has a free "jumbo demo" that you can play right now before it launches on PC next week. The first Minecraft-y spinoff from the JRPG series Dragon Quest never made it off consoles so it's nice that we get a small taste of the sequel to see what it's about.
Nordic action-RPG Rune 2 released on November 12th. The next day, its developers Human Head Studios announced their closure and that all of its development team were offered new positions at a new studio with Bethesda. Apparently they failed to mention this crucial detail to Rune 2's publisher. Now Ragnarok Game are suing Human Head to regain control of the game's source code and assets.
With Destiny 2 now in the final week of its Season Of The Undying, Bungie have shared a look at the what's next: a return to Mercury in the Season Of Dawn. The Cabal have big plans to rewrite history while our old pal Osiris has been fiddling with Vex tech to save legendary Titan hardarse Saint-14. Along with picking up story strands, the season…
Frog Detective 2 has a release date now. A very soon one, as well. The second in what's now a series of frog-led investigation games is coming to Steam next Monday, December 9th. This time, the amphibious detective is looking for an (allegedly) invisible wizard.
Big changes are coming to car football today. Rocket League has replaced its lock and key lootbox system with an item shop and blueprints for items. The new system is still random, but takes away the risk that you'll spend any actual money on an item you don't want.
When John left RPS, I wrote in his goodbye post that it was his reviews that I'd miss most. It's a good thing for me personally, then, that John has just launched a new website. Buried Treasure is a blog on which John reviews "undiscovered indie gaming gems", and there's a Patreon where you can help it carry on.
