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.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is allegedly an action game about a gun-slingin' guy named Arthur Morgan but to many of us it's become an Old West simulator where we can live the simple life hunting game and looking at trees unbothered by society. Exploration is king in RDR2 but the one place we can't explore is a place we took for granted in the previous…
Have you ever looked at your computer table with its keyboard, mouse, monitor, gamepad, and mousemat and thought "These are some nice lumps of gaming plastic, but what if I had dozens more and they were tiny?" For you, reader dear, our corporate family at Gamer Network today formally launched Dicebreaker, a new site and YouTube channel dedicated to covering tables in slabs of cardboard,…
Oh lawd, I thought the deals were finally over, but those sneaky folks at Samsung have just gone and started another better-than-Black-Friday deal on their external Samsung T5 SSD. From now until December 25th in the UK, you can claim £90 cashback on the 2TB model of the T5, taking its usual price of £270 down to just £180 - which is a heck of…
It is a sad day for pretend archaeology. Firewatch developers Campo Santo have placed In The Valley Of Gods on hold, instead choosing to work on Half-Life: Alyx, Dota Underlords, and other Valve projects. This follows their move to Valve last year, which John (RPS in peace) quizzed them on at length in 2018. That means we've got a weird, melancholy portal into when Campo…

Hades, the roguelike game about running away from your home in Hell, has released a new update today. This one is called "Welcome To Hell" and despite the name, adds ways to make the typically frustrating genre harder or easier.
The fifth and final episode of Life Is Strange 2 is out today. The choice-based narrative game has revolved around brothers Sean and Daniel as they run from their home in Seattle after a tragic run-in with police. Over the course of the season they've slowly made their way south attempting to flee to Mexico.
Halo's Master Chief Collection starts today with the release of Halo: Reach, the prequel to the rest of the sci-fi space marine stories and the first of the revamped bunch to spawn on PC. Five other Halo games will follow, ending with Halo 4 by the end of 2020.
Just like in real life, I can't seem to pick a job in Red Dead Online and stick to it. I want to be a trader and collector and bounty hunter all at the same time. Rockstar are now adding a fourth Frontier Pursuit so that I can sell moonshine and own a speakeasy—the real American Dream.
