Overwatch’s Workshop mode gets dummy bots, dancing Reinhardts

Overwatch’s latest test region patch brings a clutch of changes to its Workshop, the experimental mode that allows players to create their own games. The biggest is the ability to add dummy bots; characters that have no human or AI driving their actions. Crafty players, then, can use the scripting tools to make them do just about whatever they like. Having seen what people have…

Void Spirit will descend to Dota 2 this autumn

Another new Dota 2 hero has been announced at The International, hot off the heels of Snapfire, the elderly lizard-riding goblin announced earlier this week. They should have lead with this one. Snapfire is not an easy act to follow. Still, Void Spirit will also be joining the MOBA this autumn, though he seems somewhat reluctant to do so in his introductory video, which you…

Stones Of Solace offers up a free daily crafting ritual

Just looking at ritual crafting game Stones Of Solace lowers my blood pressure. The fuzzy, dreamlike edges to the items. The daily shifting of the colour palettes. The gentle, beach-y music to keep you company. It’s all a much-needed breath of fresh air on a hot weekend. Here is a very pretty trailer to soak in.

League Of Legends developers Riot Games have this week agreed to settle one of the class action lawsuits levied against them, paying up to the women who sued them for gender discrimination. Hooray for those women getting what they consider to be a fair settlement; may it be all that they deserve. Boo to…well, where do we begin.

Sleuth through strangers’ FMV lives in Telling Lies

FMV investigate ‘em up Telling Lies has launched, bring you reams of stolen footage to search through at your leisure. There’s a good reason you’re nosing into the lives of these four strangers, I’m sure. At least, if you think naked curiosity is as good a reason as any. Which I do. Look, here’s a sneak peak via the launch trailer.

Life Is Strange 2 episode 4 treks into stores

Troubled runaway scamps Sean and Daniel Diaz are back. The fourth episode of Life Is Strange 2 released this week, with big brother Sean casting about a big desert in search of his lost brother. He isn’t in great shape himself, either, understandably, given everything he’s been through. Observe, a very melancholy launch trailer.

The Sims 4: Realm Of Magic looks pretty Pottery

I’ve burnt my feet in a fireplace, severely concussed myself in Kings Cross station, and my mugshot hangs in every owl sanctuary throughout the land. It’s fair to say that Hogwarts just doesn’t want me, but that's okay, as I’ve sniffed out a potential replacement. The next The Sims 4 game pack Realm Of Magic might not be an entirely original prospect, but since we’re…

Free hat game! Fez is free on Epic’s Store right now, with Celeste and Inside coming next week

You could put together a decent indie games showcase for nothing just by loading the Epic Games Store and clicking a button. The current freebie on there is Polytron's excellent, world bending puzzle-platformer, Fez. It's definitely worth the zero doubloons they’re asking for it. In fact, it’s worth at least 100,000,000 times that. Fez is great.

Epic Games Store exclusive Hades will hop on the Steam train this December

Supergiant Games launched Hades exclusively on the Epic Games Store at the end of 2018, becoming one of the OG combatants in the Great Store War that followed in 2019. Though we’ll never truly know why they set-up in a store that's paying games to be there, they’ve decided that a year is enough time to be away from Steam. Hades is coming to Early…

Meet Snapfire, Dota 2’s adorable next hero

The next hero coming to Dota 2 is Snapfire, an elderly goblin who bakes cookies, carries a shotgun, and rides a giant lava-spewing lizard. She seems a lark, as long as you stay on her good side. Valve announced Snapfire today during their huge Dota tournament, The International, to arrive in a future update for the free-to-play MOBA. It's a mystery for now how she…

The buzz about town is that Minecraft just added bees

We no longer have bees in the real-world, the last one having left to fly to its home planet of HV-1 last Tuesday, so Minecraft has memorialised our buzzy buds by adding them as a new mob. The fuzzy little dancers are a neutral mob who’ll happily fill your game with honey for you to enjoy, and have just set up a hive in the…

Fortnite’s mechs are now less murdersome

Honking great mechs stomping around and blasting rocket barrages is not so much fun in a game where most players are squishy humans scampering about on foot, Epic have conceded. They've rolled out a comprehensive series of balance tweaks reducing mechs' power, though they still haven't removed them. Epic added the B.R.U.T.E. mechs to Fortnite with the start of Season 10 on August 1st, and…

If you have a spare hour, here’s a lot of Halo: Reach’s Firefight

It's good to feel excited about Halo again, isn't it? After all those years of Microsoft teasing us, saying stuff like: "The PC is an important platform for us and we are committed to a long and loving relationship with it," and then leaving us at the altar time and time again... well, it started to get a little bit old. But now we know…

Square Enix's Tokyo RPG Factory today launched their third retro-styled RPG, Oninaki. Following I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear they are shaking things up a little, this time taking more an action-RPG angle. You can see some of that bif-boff-pow in the launch trailer below, and Oninaki does have a demo so you can try it yourself for free.

Desperados 3 has a dangerously distracting cat

I was up for Desperados III just knowing the real-time tactical stealth series is being resumed by the studio behind the swish Shadow Tactics. But the most important detail of the game has, for reasons I cannot fathom, been kept quiet until this month: one of our squad members has a cat. This cat is named Stella. When Stella's food-provider talks to Stella, she meows…

Devs from Failbetter, Red Hook and ArenaNet to face the impossible at PAX West

It’s often said that the more restrictions you’re working against, the more creative you’ll become. We’re planning to test that theory to its limits next Friday at PAX West, where our Nate will be inviting a team of developers to puzzle their way around some real thinkabouters in Rock Paper Shotgun’s Game Design Hotseat. How could you make a grand strategy game with only six…

Spend 30 minutes in the company of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

Last night I met a guy, who knew a guy, who told me about a girl, who said she was penpals with some sort of rat thing, who wrote a URL down for her, all so I could get this footage of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 to you. I was up all night, and it turned out all I needed to do was…

New publisher Modern Wolf declare commitment to “ethical game development”

New wee indie publisher Modern Wolf announced themselves to the world this week, and made a big show of declaring they are "committed to ethical game development." Their initial lineup of five games sounds pretty neat, including the next games from the studios behind Neo Scavenger and Out There. More folks in the industry do talk openly about its troubles these days but it's still…
