Feature: Pain in the neck

Watch us revisit RPG classic Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is on the horizon, and we should be seeing it chomp its way into the necks of the general public some time in March next year. As it turns out, vidbuds Matthew Castle and Alice Liguori haven't ever played the original Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. Other vidbud, me, has played it a bunch before, so in anticipation of brand…

Feature: Tremere-king me very thirsty

Watch us do a stealthy, bitey run in this deep demo of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

If you hold the shift key to slide down the RPS treehouse’s rickety ropeladder, you’ll get ropeburn, but you’ll also get to the bottom of the tree. There, you’ll find a trap door that requires a pulley and a rubber chicken to open, and at the bottom of the gaping chasm, you’ll find me, a ball and chain fastened to my ankle and purple and…

Feature: The humble pooper scooper

Planet Zoo has great poop physics, runaway animals, and loads of other good animal action

Planet Zoo is Frontier's latest game in with "Planet" in the name. It takes all of what was great about Planet Coaster and replaces the rollercoasters and queues with animals and habitats. It's cute, it's fun, and it has had a lot of love poured into it. Myself and Alice Bee got the chance to have some hands-on time with the alpha at this year's…

Feature: Dodgy stuff

We tried Ghostrunner and were deemed ‘average’ at its cyberpunk parkour slicing

Have you heard of the new cyberswordman who's getting all the Mirror’s Edgelords excited? Ghostrunner is an arcadey slice ‘em up where you play a cyberpunk ninja who does Titanfall-style parkour between bullet-dodges and decapitations. It looks slick. The RPS video battalion have sent two commandos to Gamescom to take a look, and we have just received their scouting report. In short, it’s pointy and…

Feature: I don't Twana my dog to die

You can pet the dog and manipulate time with a camcorder in Blair Witch

You hear the phrase "Blair Witch video game" and your first thought as an inexplicably loyal fan is: "Oh Gods, please don't balls it up." Well, I'm happy to say despite that initial concern, I found a hands-on preview of the upcoming addition to the found footage terror universe to be inspiring of some confidence. If you want to know more, especially about the protagonist's…

Reviews Roulette: The one with Tony Hawk on a unicycle

Down in the depths of the RPS video dungeon, Matthew will occasionally release Alice L and I from the shackles clasping our wrists (we've still got a big comical prison ball 'n' chain on our ankle, mind you) and gift us with a random selection of video games we've been sent to play. The three of us then give ten minutes or so each in…

How Streets Of Rogue is a tabletop RPG disguised as a roguelike

I love Streets Of Rogue. Loads of us here at Rock Paper Shotgun do, it's why we Can't Stop Playing it. I wanted to dig a little into why I enjoy it as much as I do, and I think a really good way of communicating why is comparing it to rules-light tabletop RPGs.

Feature: What do you mean there's more to it than that?

I met an eerie janitor in Control and helped him clean up with a shapeshifting gun

Control is Remedy's latest game. The creators of Max Payne, Alan Wake, and Quantum Break are back with a third-person shooter that sits in the New Weird genre, a relatively new genre that the likes of X-Files and Twin Peaks sits in. It's very creepy. Our protagonist, Jesse Faden, is super badass and seems to take on what's going on without so much as a…

Feature: Daddies for everyone!

Reviews Roulette: The one with Donkey Kong’s wooden nipples

Did you know Rock Paper Shotgun have an absolutely phenomenal, world-class video department? No? Well, you do now. And this knowledge comes from me, Alice L, one of the three members of said world-class video department, so you can guarantee that praise is true and unbiased in every way. Something we put together on an infrequent basis is Reviews Roulette. It's infrequent because it's no…

Feature: A horror shared is a horror halved?

Man Of Medan lets you share the horror with a friend (or four)

I recently went to see Man Of Medan, the new narrative horror game from the makers of Until Dawn. I went in expecting spooks, and came out knowing all about their two new co-op modes. One is Shared Story mode, which is played online and sees you and another friend taking control of different characters in the story to help each other out - or…

Reviews Roulette: The one with tiny ghosts and egg murder

If you're new here, or aren't a viewer of our YouTube channel, then you might be unaware of something the RPS video team do on a semi-regular basis (listen, it's hard to schedule regular features when you're busy shrieking, and being problematic, and all the other things we YouTubers do.) It's called Reviews Roulette, and the idea is to give airtime to some of the…

Feature: DICE with death

The real star of Battlefield V’s battle royale is a giant, roaming bonfire

DICE appeared to drop the ball when they didn't call Battlefield V's upcoming battle royale offering 'Battlefield Royale'. They called it Firestorm instead, which sounds like a terrible Steven Seagal film you'd buy for 99p at a petrol station. Having now played the mode, due as a free update next Monday, I can see why they went with it. The titular blaze dominates the whole…

Reviews Roulette: The one with the monkey bird and daddy issues

There is no complaint more sure to induce eyerolls than ‘too many games’, but here we are. There are too many games! It’s not coming from a place of entitlement, but guilt: I’d love to give every Steam key we receive a proper chance, but time limits me to the familiar/most bribe packed. That’s where Reviews Roulette steps in. It’s our new regular video ‘show’…

Just Cause 4 concern: a bug collector’s video

As I was reviewing the really broken and very disappointing Just Cause 4, I was recording key moments too. Moments like when every car at an intersection went crazy and tried to crash into something. Or when my car touched a tree so was catapulted across a mountain. Or how boats spawn by emerging from underwater like mad whales. Or that time an NPC decided…

Video: Hitman 2 let me join the illustrious ranks of Sean Bean’s murderers

“For England, James?” “No, for XP.” 2000 XP, to be precise. That’s how much Sean Bean’s life is worth in the first of Hitman 2’s Elusive Targets. These are timed contracts that give you one shot at killing a special guest character - in this case, everyone’s favourite Yorkshire thespian (okay, it’s a toss up between Bean and fellow GoldenEye alumni Judi Dench). Bean, of…

Video: 8 cowboy games to play on PC while everyone else plays Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 was made by five million people working nine day weeks, but does it have a duck that collects your discarded throwing knives? Actually, I don’t know, as it’s not on PC. But a game that does feature a magic duck, and can be played on your home computer, is the lovely Luckslinger. It’s one of eight delightful cowboy ‘em ups that…

Feature: Warm up the cement mixer!

Hitman 2’s Santa Fortuna is impressive to look at, but Alice’s gameplay isn’t

It almost feels wrong to put a precision killing machine like Agent 47 into the hands of a total newcomer, but sometimes needs must. As the video team's resident Hitman fan was off assassinating some brain cells on a stag do, I was left to attend a hands-on with the newest stage in Hitman 2. It's called Santa Fortuna, and whisks you off to sunny…

Team Lemons play Divinity Original Sin 2 – Definitive Edition

What’s this? Two video posts on the site in two days? Now, you can’t say we don’t spoil you, because, well, we do. If you were wondering why we didn’t have a Monday Matinee or even a Tuesday Matinee it’s because we were busy filming our first ever episode of our new Team Play series. In this series myself, Noa, and Mathew will be playing…

The Thursday Matinee: Highlights from the RPS video department

Whew, Thursday already? How did we get here? For those of you who enjoy our video matinees, or for those who didn’t even know we had a YouTube channel (you can subscribe here, by the way), here’s this week's. Yeah it’s a bit late, but we’ve been pretty busy -- you’ll see why on Friday -- and Matthew’s off trying not to get killed in…

The Monday Matinee: Highlights from the RPS video department

In case you live under a mossy rock, or aren't subscribed to Rock Paper Shotgun on YouTube (if not, why not?), I've got you covered. It's the weekly round-up of everything that happened last week on our channel. We do have our very own video corner on the site, so be sure to check back to that throughout the week to see what we're up…
