The Accounting+ Trailer is the best thing you’ll watch today

Back in the day, when we first started RPS, a lot of my day was spent searching through GameTrailers (sniff, thanks GameTrailers) to find interesting-looking videos to write snark underneath. Now we force Dominic to do that, by means too criminal to describe, because there are only so many years you can do it for before you need to kill again. But I can't stop…

Override: Mech City Brawl faces down an alien invasion in a new trailer

Looking at the latest trailer for The Balance's giant robo-biffer Override: Mech City Brawl, I'm officially jealous I wasn't able to take it for a spin at EGX last month. Looking a bit like old PS2 gem War Of The Monsters, it's a game about oversized cartoon robots knocking seven shades of steel out of each other, or sometimes alien invaders if you're running solo.…

Undertale DLC hits Taito rhythm ’em up Groove Coaster

Undertale's spectacular soundtrack has found a new home today, in an unlikely partnership with old arcade studio Taito and their minimalist rhythm game Groove Coaster. Being that these are two games I regularly return to (although Groove Coaster mostly lives on my phone), it's a pairing I'm plenty happy with. While sadly only four tracks, they've picked some good ones for this DLC, and the…

Ode To A Moon is a psychedelic horror adventure “inspired by actual events”

Ever since playing Bloodborne I've been vaguely suspicious of the moon, so seeing its influence tearing the very fabric of reality asunder in Ode To A Moon's debut trailer reinforces my prejudices. The latest from 0°N 0°W creator Colorfiction, it looks to be yet another walk through a surreal reality, although this time more coherent than their previously disconnected dreamscapes. Below, a strange and lurid launch…

Resonance Of Fate: HD Edition dives into stores guns blazing

Resonance Of Fate is a JRPG without classes and practically devoid of stats, but dense in acrobatic gunfights and weird dieselpunk monsters to shoot with heavily modded guns. Remastered and relaunched today (and making its PC debut), Resonance Of Fate is the work of Valkyrie Profile and Star Ocean studio Tri-Ace, and flew under the radar when it first launched in 2010. Still, it was…

Skin Deep is Die Hard in space from the creator of Quadrilateral Cowboy

Stealthy sci-fi shooter Skin Deep, latest from Blendo Games (Quadrilateral Cowboy, Flotilla, etc) cites the greatest Christmas movie ever - Die Hard - and Far Cry 2 as equal inspirations. As the resident barefoot badass aboard a spacecraft crawling with murderous pirates, it's up to the player to clear out the bad guys, ideally while not being vented into space, bleeding out or otherwise dying…

Cod Blops 4 fiddles with Blackout player counts

How many boppers would Blackout ops rock if Cod Blops could rock lots? Well, that depends on the mode. Following the launch of Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 last week, developers Treyarch are still fiddling with its flagship battle royale mode, Blackout, and yesterday tweaked playercounts. Four-player squads have gone down from the classic Plunkbut count of 100 players to 88, while the duo…

Feature: It's raining (molten rock) men

Has Northgard been improved by its updates?

It turned out that the end of the world came with a bang and a whimper. The bang came from the volcano at the centre of Northgard’s map — a new feature added to the Viking-themed strategy game as part of its free Ragnarok update. The whimper was me, realising that the blobs of molten rock that its eruption deposited around my territory would soon…

The Jackbox Party Pack 5 is now hanging out in the kitchen

Demonstrating that they don't know jack either, Jackbox Games seem to have accidentally released their latest bundle of multiplayer games a few hours earlier than planned. The Jackbox Party Pack 5 packs five new parlour games, including the return of You Don't Know Jack, and is meant to launch tonight and is still listed on Steam as a pre-order but if you buy it now…

Heroes Of The Storm ditches support for 32-bit and DX9

"All microchips are," prog rock band Kansas famously almost sang, "is dust in the wind." Friend, we are gathered today to celebrate the retirement of another generation of hardware. Blizzard have removed support for 32-bit and DirectX 9 from Heroes Of The Storm, saying farewell to hardware that once powered PCs with such ha-ha-hilarious joke names as "Chipster", "Siri", "Crunch ALL The Frames", and "Not…

Battlerite Royale’s Halloween event is live, mysteriously isn’t called Battlefrite

The spookening draws near. That hallowed time of year where devs look at each other and go "oh we should do something for Halloween, right?" and people like me battlewrite about the consequences. Battlerite Royale has just finished pulling on its costume, chucking in a couple of creepy consumables as well as trick or treat shrines that may or may not turn you into a…

For Honor expands into China with Marching Fire, out now

Ubisoft's For Honor once looked like a write-off, but the competitive sword-o-brawler has somehow pulled itself together. Today's expansion - Marching Fire - adds a bundle of new content to the game, a lot of it paid, but some major upgrades free for everyone. All players (regardless of version owned) will get access to a castle siege playmode and a slew of graphical improvements, but…

Cultist Simulator’s first DLC, The Dancer, pirouettes into stores

Much as I love Cultist Simulator's atmosphere, I've yet to come close to completing it, my character ground down by the mundanity of maintaining mortal flesh. Today's DLC, The Dancer, might yet give me a chance at victory - or something close to it. Introducing a new career path as a cabaret dancer,  those who pursue the art of dance may find it ties more…

LEGO DC Super-Villains moustache-twirls onto PC today

Considering the gleeful destruction in TT Games's LEGO series, there's really not much difference between heroism and villainy - all the better for those wanting to take Harley Quinn for a casual hammer-rampage in LEGO DC Super-Villains, released today on PC. It's yet another in the all-consuming series of kid-friendly superhero sandbox games, and this time gives you the chance to create your own costumed…

Devs highlight their crunch-free games following Rockstar fuss

"Crunch! A-ah!" sang Queen. "Failure of the industry!" Sadly, even Brian Blessed and his black leather horde descending from the skies failed to make a lasting impact on game development. This week, a Rockstar co-founder put his foot in it talking about "100-hour weeks" for some on Red Dead Redemption 2 and Sega's parent company proudly declared that now only some employees work more than…

Discord launches its built-in store and Nitro games subscription

Another day, another place to buy and launch your games from, although Discord does has the advantage of already being on a huge number of PCs. The gaming-centric multi-chat service just launched its integrated game store, albeit in beta. A few temporary exclusives aside (Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption and Bad North seem noteworthy), it seems largely what you'd expect from a modern games storefront. Still,…

Easygoing army-pummeler Warriors Orochi 4 is out on PC now

Remember that time Chinese warlord Cao Cao teamed up with Zeus to beat up legendary ninja Hattori Hanzo and ten thousand other dudes? Well, Warriors Orochi 4 - released today - certainly does, and I'm starting to think that someone at Koei Tecmo may have fallen asleep in history class. The Warriors Orochi series are an official crossover between the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors…

Nvidia’s RTX 2070 seems to be only slightly faster than a GTX 1080

With just a day to go until the launch of Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070, those eager to see what Nvidia's new Turing GPU is capable of will no doubt have seen a flurry of reviews running through the internet halls this afternoon - and the early verdict seems to be it's just a little bit faster than Nvidia's current GTX 1080.

Aquamarine is an underwater exploration game inspired by Moebius

I'm glad that weird underwater planets are in vogue. Nothing brims with possibility like a good alien ocean, and if the Aquamarine Kickstarter succeeds then I'll get to explore one more. It's "a small-scale, point-and-click exploration game" about moseying around the seafloor in search of your crashed spaceship, as well as answers to hidden mysteries in the planet's past. Of course there are hidden mysteries…
