The modders creating accessibility modes for notoriously difficult games

Whether or not famously difficult games should have an optional easy mode has long been a point of contention. But many already do, albeit unofficially, thanks to modders taking things into their own hands. Take the fella who goes by "n00bplatformer", for example. He recently created an “Assist Mode” for run 'n’ gun action game Cuphead. It makes simple tweaks to some of the game’s…

Kingdom Come Deliverance and Aztez are free on the Epic Store today

It's Thursday, and that means new free games on the Epic Store. Between now and February 20th there are two quite fight-y games up for grabs. The first is Kingdom Come: Deliverance, a rare medieval RPG that focuses more on historical stuff rather than the fantastical. Next up is Aztez, a side-scrolling brawler set in Aztec times when the only colours they had were red,…

Get modieval with Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s editing tools

I’m willing to bet that 100% of the people reading this have made no impact on medieval society. But now you’re thinking about it, aren’t you? The idea is settling into your brain, like a pre-medicine parasite bedding down in your grey matter. Don’t panic! I didn’t incept you for no reason, but instead to get you thinking about what you could make with Kingdom…

THQ Nordic’s parent company apologises for disastrous 8chan AMA

If you believe (incorrectly) that there's no such thing as bad publicity, you may be impressed that people are still talking about publisher THQ Nordic GmbH. Their 'Ask Me Anything' Q&A session on 8chan - an infamous image-board permanently delisted from Google for hosting suspected child porn - got people chattering. Unfortunately it's the kind of chatter that has brought parent company THQ Nordic AB…

THQ Nordic held a Q&A with 8chan, a website de-listed from Google for hosting suspected child porn

"We're doing an 8chan AMA and we have no idea why," announced THQ Nordic on their Twitter account earlier this evening. If you're not aware, 8chan is an imageboard website which has been de-listed from Google search results for hosting "suspected child abuse content," and which is associated with Swatting and Gamergate.THQ Nordic's marketing director has since apologised and claimed ignorance, but both are hard…

THQ Nordic buys Kingdom Come: Deliverance developer

Nom Nom Nom Nom. Nom Nom. Nom. That was my impression of THQ Nordic acquiring various IPs as part of it's ongoing, unstoppable quest to presumably create some sort of bizarre Smash Bros knockoff where you can fight Sergeant Cortez from TimeSplitters as the goat from Goat Simulator. Warhorse, the team behind last year's Kingdom Come: Deliverance, is the latest studio to say hello to…

The Steam Awards show was short and to the point

While last year's Steam Awards were just a poll on the store, Valve are stepping up their game this year. Starting in a few minutes (at the time of writing) is the Steam Awards 2018 show, broadcasting live on the company's own Steam TV site. While I doubt there'll be anything as surprising as Epic's coup at the Game Awards before the holidays, there's still…

Steam Charts: The tail of the Winter Sale

Ho ho ho! John still hasn't returned after Christmas, missing presumed drowned in egg nog, so I'm filling in today. Valve have already blarbed about 2018's best-selling games so we're back on the weekly charts. Last week's top ten was largely familiar, though catching the tail end of the Steam Winter Sale has introduced a few surprises.

Steam Charts: Red Dead Redemption 2 Edition!

OK, look, it isn't a Red Dead Redemption 2 edition, because Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't out for PC yet. But if I keep typing Red Dead Redemption 2 into this Google is going to be SO TRICKED and the clicks will pour in and Graham will give me a promotion!

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Developers Warhorse Studios today patched in a 'Hardcore Mode' making the medieval RPG more like a survival game, hiding UI elements like the health…

Feature: Mars a-rats!

Steam Charts: When Rats & Martians Attack!

John is elsewhere this week, squeezed into Brendan's luggage for a flight to San Francisco and the Game Developers Conference, so I'm here for the regular rundown of last week's top-selling games on Steam. This week, the letters R, A, and S are well-represented with strong showings from both Mars and rats.

Steam Charts: The Rat Plague Edition

Greetings, readers. John, your regular guide to this hollow summary of ceaseless material consumption, is missing. We presume he has angered the company overlords with some sort of ill-judged diatribe against corporate consolidation, and has subsequently been reassigned to another media outlet, possibly The Re-education Supplement, or Gulag's Weekly. Well, you won't find any such insubordination from me. I have only the purest intentions of…

Feature: How to survive the middle ages

Kingdom Come Deliverance guide: walkthrough, tips and tricks

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an atypical roleplaying game even putting the lack of supernatural creatures aside. There's a greater focus on simulation, and a much steeper learning curve – getting into it is not easy or overly intuitive, especially compared to the majority of games that tend to lead you by the hand. Explanations for Kingdom Come's various systems are particularly hard to come by,…

Kingdom Come Deliverance: how to master lockpicking

The Middle Ages was no picnic. No wonder that, in so many RPGs, you tend to nick everything that hasn't been nailed down – anything to give you an edge over the harsh environment. Every true hero naturally includes lockpicking and maybe even pickpocketing as part of their repertoire – you don't save the world without first breaking a few locks. (Also, heads.) Despite its…

Feature: Reality is not what it seems

Kingdom Come Deliverance’s quest for historical accuracy is a fool’s errand

Authenticity. Accuracy. Realism. If you’ve been following the debates around Kingdom Come: Deliverance, you'll have seen these words a lot, as well as others, like representation, racism and diversity. In the wake its release, there’s been a lot of talk about whether or not Warhorse Studios had been able to make good on their ambitions to deliver an RPG grounded in historical reality. It’s a…
