Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The 50 best FPS on PC

The best shooters endure. While the state of the art moves on in other genres and leaves old designs in the dust, it's as fun to fire a well-made shotgun from an early 90s FPS as from one released today. For that reason, this list runs the gamut from genre classics to those released in the last year. There's bound to be something for you…

AvP Retro: A Stand-Up Fight Or Another Bughunt

Every Sunday, we reach deep into Rock, Paper, Shotgun's 141-year history to pull out one of the best moments from the archive. This week, Alec's 2007 celebration of the real meaning of Aliens, in (the original) Aliens versus Predator.Like every good geek, I have a favourite gaming moment. It's in Aliens Versus Predator, a vintage but oft-forgotten first-person shooter that gets mentioned by my games-hack…

Beyond Forever: Colonial Marines Returns

What? What! WHAT. Given the annoucement that the Creative Assembly is working on an Alien game for SEGA and that Gearbox seemed so busy with Duke Nukem Forever and doubtless something Borderlandsy, we'd begun to presume that Randy Pitchford's lot had quietly shelved Aliens: Colonial Marines. IT IS NOT SO. The little-seen team/co-op-based shooter has come out of the God-damned walls at last, promising a…

Alien: Not Just ‘A Licensed Game’

Perhaps a little off RPS' beaten track, but thought I'd link you to my interview with SEGA and Creative Assembly top brass for GamesIndustry.biz. For you, sir/madam/entity, its main point of interest is a few more implications as to what to expect from the newly-announced Alien game: "What we're doing with that property takes us a little bit into a more interesting place, so we're…

Creative Assembly Birthing Alien: The Game

Surprising news from the wilds of Horsham, West Sussex, England. The chaps at the Creative Assembly - best known for the splendid Total War games and some other stuff they'd probably rather forget - have just had their next game announced by, er, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, Ed Vaizey. In a bit of a major switch-around for these strategy gurus, they're taking…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 4/5

Young people. Good grief. Your ignorance is as plain as those spots on your greasy face. Don't you know anything? Can't you be bothered to learn anything? Did you even read the words of esteemed colleagues Rossignol, Walker and Smith detailing the first three parts of this Olympian list of The Most Important PC Games Of All Time? I am quite sure that I, Deacon…

Aliens Vs. Predator Vs. Demo

Demos are great. Like when you go to the supermarket and they have those plates of demos at the cheese counter. You can download a small chunk of cheddar, and if you like it there's this unlock code you type in to access the full wedge of cheese. Or at car showrooms, where you're allowed to have a go in the car for free, see…

Things Of Tomorrow

Upon emerging blinking into the, er, darkness after a binge-play to completion of Bioshock 2 (thoughts on which will appear here in a few days), I realise a) I still have to post something on RPS even though it's gone 2am and b) I have no idea what's next on my plate o'fun now that I'm all done with that and Mass Effect 2. So,…

Delayed Hat-Tipping: AvP Classic 2000

This enjoyed a more timely mention in Saturday's bargain bucket, but as an aged fanboy of Rebellion's finest hour, it would be frankly remiss of me not to grant last week's surprise release of Aliens vs Predator Classic 2000 a post of its own. The name is absolutely ridiculous, and could only possibly stem from someone important losing their mind in a board meeting -…

The Year Ahead, Part One

Below is the first part of our intricate guide for PC gaming in 2010. There's a horde of muscular-looking titles on the horizon, many of them likely to stop you and demand your money, like ludological bandits. Meanwhile, others that we expected to land, such The Old Republic, have already fled to 2011. Read on as the clouds in our crystal ball roll back...

Aliens vs Prequel

Bold attempt to contextualise shooting dudes in the face ahoy! Rebellion's AvP remake seems determined to make the world take Aliens seriously again - though alas it's a doubly hard task after the UK developer making a woeful mess of things yet again with the recent Rogue Warrior. I got the chance to try out AvP's multiplayer a couple of months back, and left the…

Aliens VS February

Chilly, Wintertime face-munching and spinal severing awaits us on the the 19th of February 2010, according to trade mag MCV. Which, while pleasingly soon, does mean we've got one more game to add to the now frighteningly busy Feb/March period. February: it's the new Christmas! Oh, and there'll be three different editions of AvP to choose from - sane people will want Standard, people who…

They’ll Regret That: AvP Multiplayer Frothing

Man, this was a lucky escape. I was at a preview event for the upcoming Aliens vs Predator remake/sequel's multiplayer mode a few weeks back, at which Men With Cameras were on the prowl for talking heads - specifically, a few journalists to give this game they'd seen (frankly, not all that much of) a big thumbs-up. Hmm. A fortunate confluence of having to run…

AvP: The Alien Trailer

We remain quietly hopeful about the upcoming AvP game. If it manages to capture some of the terrifying atmosphere of the original game then we could be in for a treat. The one part of the jigsaw we haven't yet seen in action was the alien itself, which gets fixed today. Eeech, face-huggers still give me the willies. And I wonder if the speed of…

RPS At E3: Sweeping Up

There are a few bits and pieces from E3 that I've yet to write about. I've also thoughts on the remarkable-looking Love to come, and details on a few of Paradox's forthcoming games via Mr Stone. But here's a few that were left over. Below there's a few brief comments on Alpha Protocol, Alien Vs Predator and Rogue Warrior.

Aliens Vs Predator: Rumble In The Jungle

Wahey - proper footage at last of what looks to be an epic comback for Aliens, Predators and fallen-from-grace Britdevs Rebellion alike. Should we be concerned they're trying to rescue their reputation by revisiting past glories? Nah, not when it looks as good as this. Only the Predator mode is shown off for now, but there's nonetheless plenty of opportunity to ogle the sci-fi FPS'…

Aliens vs Predator Resurrection

Okay, most folk have known about this for a little while already, but today's the day official word and oh-gawd-so-pretty pictures spill into the public domain. It's Aliens! It's Predators! It's by Rebellion, creators of the still-splendid original AvP game! Admittedly, Rebellion have been churning out rubbish for the last couple of years, but I'm quite sure that, with this, they intend to reclaim their…

Heroes and Villains

A quick note on two two new word-pustules I've affixed to the internet's mottled hide. First, Eurogamer's new MMO channel is foolish enough to let me celebrate my beloved City of Heroes character, The Entomologist, for 2000 words. In theory I'm talking about how COH's character editor and class structure offers a degree of self-expression no other MMO can touch, but mostly I'm jaffing off…
