Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC has no place for gay heroes

Assassin's Creed Odyssey offers more player freedom than any other game in the series, including letting you steer your protagonist's sexuality. As a feature, it was widely praised, and Ubisoft have proudly marketed the game on how much it respects and reacts to player freedom. Unfortunately, the latest chapter of the Legacy Of The First Blade DLC undermines this in favour of leading the player…

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.

Feature: Some of these might surprise you

Kat Brewster’s 5 best games of 2018

I wracked my brain over the past few weeks, trying to think of games I played in 2018. This seems to happen every year around GOTY time — much like when someone asks you what your favourite movie is, and you forget whether you’ve actually ever seen a movie. Did… Did I play any video games? Did any games even come out? Surely there must…

Xalavier Nelson Jr.’s 5 best games of 2018

It is terrifying to be an independent developer right now. Before, small teams might compare themselves to a ‘soulless’ billion dollar industry built on games where Very Large Men shoot other Very Large Men (regardless of the merit of that claim). Now, those same big studios are bringing their absurd levels of manpower and polish to titles that are more empathetic and experimental than ever…

Americans can get Assassin’s Creed Odyfree from Google

If you play an hour of Assassin's Creed Odyssey before January 15th, you can keep it forever - but there are two catches. One catch is that you have to play it on Google's Project Stream, and the other is that you have to live in the US to do so. Project Stream is one of those cloud-based clients that lets you run games on…

Podcast: The year 2018 is sinking and only 3 games can be saved

 Look out. The year 2018 is going down in a storm. There are hundreds of games aboard, running, jumping, trying their best to survive the maelstrom. But there’s only one tiny lifeboat, and only enough room for three games. It falls on the sorry shoulders of the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, to decide which trio of games clamber onto the life raft…

Steam Charts: Christmas Miracle Edition

I don't what is this? How many? Are we sure we're in the right charts? This is definitely the Steam Charts, where the mad-brained broken people just buy the same four games over and over and over? Because something is up. People have only bought the same three games over and over!

Dragon Age lead designer Mike Laidlaw joins Ubisoft Quebec

With BioWare starting to mutter about Dragon Age again (and rumours saying they'll announce DA4 this week), here's one person who won't be involved: long-running designer and director Mike Laidlaw, as he's joined Ubisoft Quebec. Laidlaw [not to be confused with Half-Life writer Marc Laidlaw -ed.] left BioWare in 2017 after 14 years, where he'd been a lead writer on Jade Empire, a lead designer…

Ass Creed Odyssey’s first DLC is out, offers some standard stabbing

"I'm trying to find reasons for why this DLC is of note" says vidbod Matthew in his and Katharine's look at Assassin's Creed Odyssey's first DLC, "but orange leaves obviously isn't one of them". I beg to differ. Legacy Of The First Blade's first episode of three is out, and takes place in autumnal Makedonia - an area that we've already galloped around for a…

Steam Charts: I Was On Holiday Last Week Edition

I, Alice Bee, have returned from a week off and everything has changed. Matt is in the office now, and complained about having to get up at 8.15am. This complaint made me furious and I am telling everyone. My desk has been moved. There is no milk in the fridge. I am confused, and I can't remember all the HTML codes to write this very…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Ainigmata Ostraka: all the clue solutions, the best engravings

Engravings in Assassin's Creed Odyssey are attachments that you can apply to weapons and are earned in multiple different ways. You'll likely obtain most of them by increasing your level, or by completing key quests in the story. Yet the best ones that you can obtain take a lot more work on your part, usually by finding Ainigmata Ostraka and solving the riddles that they…

We talk to Alexios and Kassandra voice actors about the beauty of mocap, and using Pink Floyd to get psyched up

Contains some spoilers. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a proper action-RPG, complete with romance opportunities, conversation trees, branching storylines, and bales of soft material to leap into from improbable heights. While well-written and expansive, much of the story’s appeal can be laid at the feet of its charismatic leads. Greek actors Michael Antonakos and Melissanthi Mahut provide the voices and performance capture for Alexios and Kassandra,…

The Joy of having all my girlfriends aboard in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

In a game series that seemed to be dominated by male stories, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a beautiful, sapphic dream by comparison. Women in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey play a huge role. Whether they’re your mother, your lover, your sister or your friend, women are significant in a way that’s always been needed in one of Ubisoft’s biggest games. So, imagine my delight that the role…
