Feature: Consider your predicament

Baldur’s Gate 3 will (maybe) hit early access in August… and that trailer got me well excited

Today's Guerilla Collective stream treated us to two tasty nuggets from the Forgotten Realms, as Baldur's Gate 3 got its first official trailer, and also a tentative early access release date of "August (Maybe)". That 'Maybe' is, understandably, doing a lot of heavy lifting right now, as developers Larian Studios can't be certain what will and won't be possible under the looming spectre of the…

Baldur’s Gate 3 is nearly here, and it looks as good as you hope

If you play tabletop games like Dungeons & Dragons - heck, if you play a lot of video games like Hitman or XCOM where you rely on a blend of skill and luck - you'll know that it's more fun when everything goes wrong but you manage to make it through anyway. Things going according to plan are boring. This is why it was great…

The Cheerer and the Jeerer – the PC Gaming Show at E3 as it happened

Matt: Brendy never made it home last night, after jeering his way through Bethesda's conference in person. The hotel room is lonely and I miss him very much, but the PC Gaming Show must go on. Welcome to the "I'm the only one that's here-ah", where I cheer and jeer at the cheery RPS fanzine's show by myself. Brendan Wraithwell: Don't worry, I've got your…

Feature: "We're building a rollercoaster!"

Baldur’s Gate 3 announced, from the creators of Divinity: Original Sin

They call it Ceremorphosis. The excruciating seven day process by which a humanoid might transform into a Mind Flayer. Stick one illithid tadpole in the brain and one week later you’ve got an octopus for a head and a craving for more grey matter. And what better visual metaphor for the return of Baldur’s Gate: the adventure that lodged in the hearts and minds of…

The Quests That Got Cancelled

It's a great time for RPGs at the moment, with just about every name, flavour and celebrity from the old days finding a new lease of life through Kickstarter and a freshly hungry audience. Most series and creators though have had at least one game fall prey to development hell - sometimes with their ideas resurfacing in later titles, sometimes with everything simply lost to…

Beamdog “Interested” In Casting Icewind Dale Remake

Generally, it's pretty cringe-inducing to watch publishers get ahead of themselves. "Annual sequels, comic book tie-ins, and a movie deal that will pass across the desk of at least one noteworthy director before getting indefinitely shelved," they excitedly proclaim. Then things inevitably don't go as planned, and everyone has a good, long sob. I want to believe Beamdog when it says Baldur's Gate 3 is more…

Baldur’s Gate III: “We’re Totally Thinking Kickstarter”

Oh boy. Here's my theory - throughout the year there will be numerous Kickstarter projects that people become excited about, pledge money to and then look forward to. Fatigue will set in due to the number of awesome concepts being put forward by wonderful people, but it isn't fatigue alone that will end this fascination. My belief is that one day the perfect Platonic ideal…
