The PC port is the best way to play Horizon Zero Dawn

Folks, the time has almost come. Yes, Horizon Zero Dawn's PC release is mere days away. Soon, Guerrilla Games' former Sony exclusive will be unleashed on a new segment of the game playing public like a big robot dinosaur set free in a water park. We here at RPS are looking at HZD from several angles, so while Nate is down in the wordmines right…

Warframe: Heart Of Deimos is about mechs, insect surfing and a dash of kismet

You could accuse Digital Extremes of being a bit on the nose with their latest Warframe expansion. The world is in the grip of a pandemic and up they pop at their annual TennoCon convention (now streamed, for full social distancing) with Heart Of Deimos: a gooey, pulsating update revolving around a trip to a moon in the grip of a parasitic infestation. But unlike…

Help us continue to be horrible in space in The Outer Worlds

After posing the question ‘who actually takes the evil path in games?’ I was surprised to see the answer is ‘most RPS readers, actually’. I’m not sure if this speaks more to my delightful innocence or your inherent gitishness. Either way, Colm and I (your RPS Vid Buds) continue to step out of our comfort zone as we pursue the nastiest outcomes in The Outer…

Feature: Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Othercide is a tactical roguelite about the world’s pushiest mother

Mums, eh? Can’t live with ‘em, literally can’t live without ‘em. Sadly, some take this as a certificate of ownership, allowing them to subject their offspring to the worst things imaginable, like offering them as a guinea pig to a class of trainee hairdressers. A perfect storm of nerves and scissors. Sorry, I should probably keep this for therapy. The point I’m getting to (ignoring…

Join us in being as evil as possible in The Outer Worlds

Has anyone, in the history of gaming, actually made the bad choice? I can see the renegade dialogue option staring at at me, but are we 100% sure it’s wired up to something in the game? I have my doubts. And it’s those doubts that have led to this, a new streaming series where your loyal RPS vid buds attempt to pursue the worst endings…

Can you get a perfect score on our Assassin’s Creed music quiz?

Are you looking forward to the Assassin's Creed Valhalla soundtrack just as much as the actual game? If so, then you should check out our latest music quiz, which focuses on all things Assassin's Creed.Because the masses have been eating up online quizzes during lockdown, RPS' video wing has been testing the waters to see if you, the video game playing public, also enjoy them.…

Death Stranding tells the worst elements of open world games to take a hike

Having bounced off the opening exposition of Death Stranding on PS4 last November I was not anticipating falling in love with its craggy exploration on PC. And yet here I am, some 40 hours under my belt (along with a pair of spare boots and 30ft of climbing rope) and readily committed to 40 hours more. Underneath that initial hit of lore, acronyms and holographic…

You can’t pet the dog in Superhot: Mind Control Delete

Superhot: Mind Control Delete is the standalone follow-up to phenomenal FPS puzzler Superhot. It's been in early access for a while, but if you already own Superhot, you'll get Mind Control Delete for free when it comes out on July 16th. Mind Control Delete has a lot of cool new enemies that are effectively slight variations on the shimmering silhouettes that chased after you in…

Feature: Epic lute

Mortal Shell is a body-hopping Dark Souls tribute act, with wicked lute solos

I dread any ‘soulslike’ game arriving in my inbox, as it normally means having to make a video based on the first fight shot from different angles, as I couldn’t get any further. So it speaks to the appeal of Cold Symmetry's Mortal Shell that I persevered long enough to put together an entire video preview, and find a delightful lute to jam on in…

Feature: Where the wild things are

Biomutant sounds like Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but furrier

The Biomutant reveal feels like a lifetime ago. Announced at Gamescom in 2017, the kung fu... cat/panda/bear-thing captured the imagination of everyone with that first trailer. And, despite some delays, the excitement for Experiment 101's open world RPG has been growing ever since. No wonder, I suppose. You are a kung fu cat/panda/bear-thing, after all.

Come watch a newcomer and a forgetful veteran play Deus Ex live

RPS threw Deus Ex a 20th anniversary birthday bash earlier in the week with a superb oral history of the game’s creation. Did you know that there was going to be a pirate island at one point? That and many other gems await you. To continue the ‘fun’, the RPS vid buds thought we’d revisit the game in a stream. If that earlier feature was…

SpongeBob: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehydrated is your childhood, but shinier

I never got SpongeBob Squarepants. When he was in his pomp, I was in that awkward pre-teen phase where I thought I was too old to just enjoy it as a cartoon, but not quite old enough to be part of the older folk that watched. Because of that, I never played Battle For Bikini Bottom when it first launched in 2003. I have a…

Watch EA Play Live 2020 right here and stick around for Vidbud analysis

Myself and Matthew are continuing Rock Paper Shotgun's not-E3 E3 2020 video coverage with some pre- and post-show chat on EA's EA Play Live 2020 show, starting at 11.40pm BST. We'd love it if you came and watched us talk absolute wallop at an ungodly hour. I will be caning some Nescafé Azera to stay up. Inhaling granules straight from the tin.

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is so destructive… but so relaxing

Without good, honest workers stripping apart old spaceships, the galaxy would be much more crowded. The reason you never see Luke Skywalker run into traffic is because of the hard work done by the great tradesmen of the Milky Way. If you've always been more interested in carefully dismantling spaceships rather than flying them, Hardspace: Shipbreaker is definitely something you should check out.

Watch our Vidbuds try and play every demo in the Steam Game Festival

The RPS Vidbuds are getting involved in all the not-E3 fun this year. After their livestream of pre- and post-PC Gaming Show analysis, they're upping the ante by playing as many of the Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition demos as possible. See both slices of lovely upcoming games, and Matthew Castle shouting about Toblerones probably. The stream starts at 7pm BST, and you can find…

Come and support our second Black Lives Matter charity stream

To support the ongoing protests against police brutality and systemic racism, the Rock Paper Shotgun video team is amplifying Black streamers in an effort to raise money for the great organisation that is the NAACP. Last Tuesday we all watched as Tianna Mercedes put us all to shame by playing a blinder in Call of Duty: Warzone. Today, we've got the excellent NNESAGA on to…

Use ‘brain’ with ‘ears’ in our adventure game music quiz

Can you tell your Monkey Island from your Broken Sword? I hope so, or you're going to waste a stupid amount of time trying to get George Stobbart to insult sword fight with Nico. If you pass this very low bar for adventure game knowledge you should probably take a swing at our new adventure game music quiz.
