Screenshot Saturday Sundays: Pastel skateboards for peculiar skeletons

Screenshot Saturday Sundays! Your weekly, carefully hand-wrapped delivery of wonderful work-in-progress videogame artworks, slammed haphazardly through the mailbox by a careless postie. This week: Chilled-out reverts, celestial boneyards, crash-landing shenanigans and a rather informal shopkeep.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s new map hides a vaporwave secret

Between hidden arcade machines and Ronald Reagan's war crimes, Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War quite badly wants to evoke the 80s. But it doesn't look like the 80s, so much as it looks like a high-budget videogame made in the late 2010s. Fortunately, you can fix that with an easter egg hidden in the newest iteration of Nuketown, with old-school colour filters hidden…

Fallout 76 grants player request to add wheelchairs to the wasteland

The Brotherhood Of Steel brought a lot of metal with them when they arrived in Fallout 76. Power Armour, weapons, you name it. But in a more quietly pleasant addition to the wasteland, it looks like Bethesda also added wheelchairs with last week's update, following one fan's request to see their own real-life mobility aid represented in the post-apocalyptic sandbox.

Sokpop’s Pipo Park offers up one last cosy autumn afternoon

We finally did it, folks. 2020 is almost over. And while it felt like spring and summer were interminably long, autumn seems to have passed in the blink of an eye. But we can still enjoy the best season a little while longer with Dutch indie boyband Sokpop, who are taking us all out on a cosy trip to Pipo Park's tiny sandbox. Wrap up…

11 years later, this gobsmacking Line Rider track is finally complete

You remember Line Rider, right? That Flash game with the wee man on a sled who slides down whatever track you've sketched? Great little time-killer, that. Only, it seems one artist has wiled away more than a few hours on the slip 'n' slider. Having spent hundreds of hours over the past decade putting it all together, David Lu is finally ready to show us…

Fall Guys devs opening another studio

The Fall Guys stooges at Mediatonic this week announced they've found a spot for new studio in Leamington Spa, which I suppose means they can go ahead and open one. They initially announced plans for a studio in the English spa town back in February, but they hadn't created a gaming sensation at that point so, y'know, fewer people were interested in the news. What…

Destiny 2’s raid race was delightfully brutal

The best time to play a Destiny raid is as soon as it launches. Before the puzzles are solved, the bosses cheesed, the builds optimised, and the surprises spoiled, get in and discover it for yourself. Raids are extra brutal at launch because the first 24 hours are under a special 'Contest Mode' making enemies so much tougher while players race for the world's first…

You can save 15% on this RTX 3080 Alienware Aurora desktop

As you may have noticed, graphics card deals are pretty few and far between this Black Friday, and there simply haven't been any RTX 3080 cards in stock to even try and buy one at their usual price. At least not on their own, anyway. If you've got deep pockets and have been thinking about upgrading your entire PC to, say, play Cyberpunk 2077 with…

The Epic Game Store’s Black Friday sale has landed

You get a sale! And you get a sale! Everybody gets a sale! Hot on the heels of Steam's autumn sale, Epic Games have launched their own Black Friday extravaganza. Now, they don't have quite so many games on offer as Steam's big blowout, but there are a few decent deals in there - including some alright discounts on new games like Watch Dogs: Legion…

Apex Legends glitch lets you launch vehicles across the map

Deals deals deals! Just kidding - I interrupt your regularly scheduled Black Friday posts to bring you some delightful Apex Legends japes. Today in "what daft thing has Imogen done in a multiplayer shooter now", I had a go at replicating a glitch that throws Apex's new vehicles across the map. Actually, "launch" is probably a better word to use than "throw", because pulling off…

The real winners of this year’s Black Friday sale are the ultrawide monitor deals

Black Friday is over half way done for us in the UK, and as I look back over the great sea of discounted PC components I've scavenged over the last seven days (weeks? Years?), I have to say that the best deals have definitely been reserved for those after an ultrawide gaming monitor. That's not to say there also hasn't been plenty of great, if…

GOG’s Black Friday game sale has big discounts on old favourites

It's finally the end of the week, which means it's Black Friday for real. Rather than kick off a sale earlier in the week like so many others, GOG are clearly taking the whole event much more seriously, dropping their big Black Friday deals today. I respect it. While they don't have too many new games on offer, they have got a load of old…

What’s your favourite game of 2020?

The RPS treehouse has been filled with that most festive of activities: arguing. We've been selecting games for the RPS Advent Calendar, which means both trying to decide what games we loved most in 2020, and also trying to remember even a single game we played in 2020.To help with both of these things, I'm asking you: what was your favourite game this year?

Itch.io’s Black Friday sale has Among Us and loads of indie goodies

Black Friday has no cultural relevance for someone who doesn't celebrate American Thanksgiving, but I'm up for good games going cheap. Itch.io is the latest digital PC games store to launch a big Black Friday sale, and it's the one that interests me most for all of Itch's indie goodies. The store mostly sells DRM-free downloads, but plenty do come with keys you can slam…

Get the Oculus Quest 2 with a $15 voucher from Newegg

I already own three VR headsets and yet I still find myself considering a fourth. That's because of the standalone Oculus Quest 2, which ditches the heavy cables of the Vive and Index and allows you to roam in VR without fear of getting tangled. I've been keeping an eye for deals on the headset over Black Friday and the best I can find is…

The brilliant SteelSeries Arctis 7 is back down to £100 for Black Friday

The excellent and RPS-approved wireless gaming headset, the Steelseries Arctis 7, is always one of the most hotly sought after items during Black Friday and finally this year's deal has arrived. It's been stuck at a very stubborn £159 for the last six months or so, according to my price tracker, but now it's finally fallen to a much more agreeable £100. Both the black…

Samsung’s 240Hz Odyssey G7 monitor returns for another epic Black Friday deal

The Samsung Odyssey G7 was one of the standout Prime Day deals in the UK last month, but this incredible 2560x1440, 240Hz gaming screen has returned for another round of Black Friday deals goodness. Now down to just £430 for the 27in model and £500 for its larger 32in sibling, these savings of £120 and £130 apiece aren't to be missed if you're after one…

Nicalis issue DMCA takedowns against Cave Story fangame

A fan-made enhanced edition of Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya's seminal indie platformer Cave Story has been slapped with a DMCA takedown. Publishers Nicalis have accused Cave Story Engine 2 of using code stolen from the original game's source - code that they, as developers of Cave Story +, own. But while fears that the publisher planned to wipe all free versions of the game off the…
