Florida gets even weirder in early slice of Fallout: Miami mod

You don't need to play Fallout 4 for a vision of the USA as a post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with wacky characters and deadly critters; you can experience it for real with a visit to Florida. But a vision of post-apocalyptic Florida, oh boy, are you sure you can handle that? Best you ease yourself in slowly, perhaps with the newly-released early slice of the mod…

Vive Cosmos gets a modular face lift ahead of specs reveal next week

When HTC first unveiled their flash new Vive Cosmos headset back in January, we were presented with a smooth, baby-faced design that had a bright blue sheen and glow-in-the-dark controllers. Now, however, it would appear the Vive Cosmos has entered the pock-marked teenage phase of its run up to release, as HTC posted a new video on Facebook this week showing off its new, updated…

Have You Played… Mount and Blade: Warband?

The Elder Scrolls games delight zero-to-hero fantasists by introducing you as a prisoner in every installment. Shackled on a ship, locked away in a keep, transported to the block on a prisoner’s cart. It’s a nice tradition, the reincarnation of the world-saving pluralist nobody, always in chains. But these games lack true resolve. They set you free immediately, after serving practically no time at all.…

And All Would Cry Beware is a brilliant name for a metroid’y FPS

Released today, And All Would Cry Beware fits in nicely alongside Renegade Sector Games's other stuff by looking like a portal to a parallel timeline where the Sega Saturn reigns supreme. Described by solo dev Alec Stamos as "a fast-paced 90s-style shooter with a Metroidvania Structure", it's a chunky exploration platform shooter set on a strange alien world. I've had half an eye on this…

Hitman 2 sends Agent 47 to do his banking in tomorrow’s DLC

When Ian Hitman isn't hitting men, he's apparently knitting his own cold-weather ensemble. At least, that's what he says in the trailer for the New York bank mission DLC coming to Hitman 2 tomorrow. I see no reason not to believe him, as he's very candid for a man of mystery and murder. The first full, regular mission coming to the stab-puzzle sandbox since launch,…

Totally Reliable Delivery Service wobbles awkwardly into open beta

The humble fetch quest - mindless fodder for an MMORPG hero, but a terrifying ordeal for the wobbly balloon people of Totally Reliable Delivery Service. While playable solo or in split-screen for up to four, We're Five Games want to test the networking for their flailing comedy deliver 'em up. That's good for us, as it means we can all try it free. Starting today…

Blazing Chrome gets more Contra than Contra (with ninjas) on July 11th

Contra is back next month on July 11th - not in name, but undeniably in spirit. Blazing Chrome by Joymasher is exactly my kind of run-and-gun platformer. Loud, fast, and packed with mean-looking robots and weird biomechanical monsters with far too many eyes and teeth. Today, along with announcing the release date, they put out a new trailer showing off even more of the game…

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II’s Chaos expansion brings spiky naked dudes to space

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II, a slightly flabby spaceship smashing strategy than I nonetheless had a great time with, gets a big dose of daemonic evil today in the form of a new campaign featuring everyone's favourite spiky chaps. No, not hedgehogs you silly goose! Chaos! Them with the skin peeling and possession and giant psychic tears in space time and that. A fine bunch. Avert your…

Jason! Jason! Jason! Jason is now on PC with Heavy Rain

Quantic Dream today bring to PC perhaps the best of David Cage's PlayStation-exclusive QTE storysprawls, Heavy Rain. I'm damning with faint praise there, but the murder mystery told through the perspectives of four characters is an interesting one at times. Also, it's hilarious to repeatedly fail QTEs to shake a carton of orange juice then just stand there with your digiman staring blankly as the…

Fortnite Battle Royale unvaults old guns and modes for a fortnight in the sun

Epic Games are on holiday for the next two weeks, but before they left for some much-needed R&R (especially after all that crunch), they lined up a summer event for Fortnite Battle Royale. The 14 Days Of Summer event is live now and runs until the devs return on July 8th. Every day, they'll be 'unvaulting' a weapon or item removed from the game for…

Super Pig X only reveals the level once you’ve already died horribly

Sos Sosowski, of McPixel, Stomp it Up, and Mosh Pit Simulator infamy, has now set his sights back towards the under-serviced 'doing violence to farm animals' genre with Super Pig X, a follow up to the 2012 Flash game Super Pig. It's a brutal, Super Meatboy lookin' platformer where you guide a pig around pitch black levels until your inevitable demise splashes handy, revealing blood…

QT is PT but cute, see, and it’s free

First-person spooker PT, the legendary 'playable teaser' which announced Silent Hills, has inspired hordes of copies, remakes, and rip-offs in the years since Konami cancelled Silent Hills and tried to sweep both under the rug. None have surprised or delighted me nearly as much as QT, a free first-person peeteer released over the weekend by the fella behind Morning Post and Library. As if the…

Encodya demo brings point and click puzzling, robots with feelings

Robots but with feelings is a good media genre, so I’m intrigued by upcoming point and click game Encodya. Set in the world of newspaper cartoonists’ worst nightmares, where “cyberspace has supplanted human connection,” protagonist Tina and robot pal Sam are off on an adventure where they’ll presumably rediscover the wonder of the world outside the internet. Unfortunately, if you want to see the trailer…

Screenshot Saturday! A day to appreciate games that don’t yet exist, and may change utterly before they are released, and yet are already lovely to gawp at. This week: some early Halloween goodness, a rag-tag adventuring party, and a lovely bit of cooking.

Lovely Planet 2 is a sequel to the fast-flinging FPS

Lovely Planet 2: April Skies appears to follow closely in the footsteps of its predecessor. Both original and sequel are “first person shooter gun ballets” that combine colourful-cute graphics with bounce-o-dodge platforming and lots of shooting. Replay for faster times, to find secrets you missed, or in new game plus mode for more difficult challenges. Here’s a trailer showing off the combination of cheery art…
