Podcast: Should survival games die?

No. Let's not be ridiculous. But there are so many examples of bad survival games that it’s important to remember the good ones. So that’s what we are doing on the latest RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show.

No Man’s Survival: The Solus Project’s Looking Good

It's probably not fair to either game to invoke No Man's Sky when talking about upcoming sci-fi survival offering The Solus Project [official site], but both the reddish-pink colour palette and the heavy use of tricorders (let's not kid ourselves, eh?) does put me in mind of Hello Games' newbie.

Spooky Space Survival: The Solus Project

Crash-landing your spaceship on a deserted planet is bad enough, but a growing suspicion that you're not alone is surely worse. Look forward to that in The Solus Project [official site], a first-person singleplayer survive 'em up given its formal announcement during E3.
