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…

Steam’s Spring Cleaning Event wants you to clear your backlog… Or just try a bunch of new games instead

I'm not sure if Valve's latest promotional wotsit on Steam knows whether it's coming or going. On one hand, it's nice that the Spring Cleaning Event (running until Monday, 28th May) is nudging players into trying out games they may have bought in sales and never touched, but pairing that with nine simultaneous free weekend events does somewhat undermine the message. Ah well, it's an excuse to…

Feature: Tell your friends

The 25 best co-op games ever made

Sometimes you need a hand to hold, so we’ve updated our list of the 25 best co-op games to play on PC with a headset-wearing friend or a muted stranger. Everything's better with a pal or two in tow, from collaborative puzzle solving to sublime double stealth takedowns. Equally sublime are when those takedowns go awry, your partner shrieks in panic and all hands are…

Feature: the real pre-sequel

Have you played… Borderlands?

Strange now, when Borderlands is as big as it is and as synonymous as it is with bug-eyed shrieking, to think back to the transformative and ambitious promises of the first few times we glimpsed it. The idea of an FPS with the mentality of Diablo was ahead of its time, and at the time seemed thrilling rather than, as is the case now, the…

Feature: The biggest hits of the past 12 months

These are the top 100 Steam games of 2017

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games. But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol' breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months. Below is the full, hundred-strong…

Steam Charts: NOTHING EVER HAPPENS AT ALL

Meer stared at himself in the mirror. Was he really a man anymore? Or was he just a machine made of meat that endlessly pasted the same handful of game-names into a CMS post, week after week until he died? Or was he dead already? Was this hell? Yes, that must be it. What else could writing "a href="https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/tag/Grand-Theft-Auto-V" for an eternity possibly be? Yet…

Pandorawood: A Borderlands Movie Is In The Works

Gearbox Software's toon-styled bro-shooter Borderlands [official site] is getting the Hollywood treatment with a new movie based on the franchise, in some form or another anyway. The news comes from Variety, who write that Lionsgate is developing the flick with the help of producers Avi and Ari Arad, although details beyond that remain scant. So here's what we know so far:

Bloodsports.TV Looks Like Borderlands vs Smash TV

Not every RPG has to be a roguelite now, y'know. Sometimes it's nice to kill and kill and kill without having to overly worry about getting killed. The hyper-violent Bloodsports.TV is the toon-styled sequel to post-apocalyptic Diablolike Krater, whose setting made it catnip to Jim back in 2012, but he came away feeling let down. The unpleasantly-named (at least, if like me, you grew up…

2K Games Cheap, Borderlands 2 Free This Weekend

There's no such thing as a free Borderlands 2 weekend on Steam, my grandmother used to say. Well, granny, look who's the "stupid-faced, manchild, crushing disappointment to the Walker family" NOW. Gearbox's cel-shaded gabbling co-op ARPGFPSOMGWTF is currently experiencing rather big discounts, and is available to fart around in (after a fashion) from now and all weekend without your wallet shedding a single tear. And…

Pre-Preview – Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Yesterday I was shown around half an hour of footage from the new Borderlands game, which everyone already knew about as it got leaked on Monday. Here's what it's all about. I'm pretty sure we're not supposed to take the messy portmanteau 'Pre-Sequel' too seriously, given Borderlands' traditionally derisive-about-everything tone. So while it's playful rather than the latest 'expandalone' or 'freemium' or whatever the latest…

Krieg’s Brain Freeze: Borderlands 2

The latest Borderlands 2 video reveals the sad plight of Krieg, the playable psycho character whose troubled mind you can enter for $9.99. Disconcertingly, Krieg's inner monologue reveals him to be a thoughtful and frustrated individual. The words that come out of his mouth - words like 'poop train' and 'meat bicycle' - do not reflect his thoughts, suggesting there has been a breakdown between…

All He Ever Wanted Was To Be Set On Fire

Tomorrow will see the release of another Borderlands 2 playable character, this time hailing from the howling cast of its deranged bandit antagonists. Krieg The Psycho - whose scenery-gnawing behaviours can be seen below in a video I borrowed from VG247 - is a character who is supposed to emulate all of the absurdly dangerous attack actions the bandits perform in Borderlands 2. So expect…

Psycho Killer, DLC: Borderlands 2 Adds Character, Levels

IGN carry the news that Gearbox are raising the level cap in Borderlands 2, and adding a new difficulty mode and item tier. There is also a short video showing the latest Vault Hunter murdering bandits - he's a psycho by the name of Krieg. The level cap will be raised to 61, the new mode scales monsters to the highest level in your party…

Unlock Your Inner Lansbury: Steam Guides Are Out

The gaming guide is something of a lost art form. Back in the day, they were the only way to find out how to get past that bloody goat in Broken Sword, aside from phoning Uncle Charles and asking him on his goat hotline. Now it's all Google, Youtube, wikis, or skywriters. You can't look at a sunset without the best StarCraft 2 build orders…

January Jungles: Borderlands 2 DLC Goes Hunting

Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt is the next wedge of DLC for Borderlands 2. A big game hunt could be a sort of man-shooter shooter, but spiffy old Hammerlock is more concerned with blowing the pelts off the hordes of beasties that populate Pandora. The new post-campaign story content will introduce a new villain and, most exciting, a new continent that is covered in jungles…

XP-Loaded Explosions: Borderlands 2’s Torgue DLC Out

BORDERLANDS 2 TORGUE DLC TORGUE EXPLOSION TORGUE BADASS CRATER TORGUE OUT NOW YEAH. I apologize for the all-caps barrage, but Borderlands 2's new DLC is very loud, and I felt that my words would be woefully unable to capture its essence in a minuscule, easily-stepped-on state. So right then, TORGUE TORGUE TORGUE TRAILER BOOM POCKET ROCKET DRAGON CAR GIRAFFE RAINBOW WAFFLE.

Borderlands 2’s Next DLC: Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage

I appreciate a winding narrative arc that twists and turns and writhes and eventually chokes down its own tail in an Ouroboros-like fashion as much as anyone, but every once in a while, direct is best. On those occasions, I want to get right to the point. No muss. No fuss. I guess what I'm saying is, sometimes I just want to shoot a bunch of…

Vault A Lot of Borderland 2 Trailers

That's what it would sound like if Dracula was a fan of Borderlands 2. Imagine that. He wouldn't be able to say the word 'Vault' without everyone imagining he's actually attempting to say 'what'. But then 'Vault' doesn't make much sense in that context. That is the tragedy of Dracula. I am not tragic in the slightest, so when I do it is actually a…

UK Charts: Dishonored 2, XCOM 7, Scunthorpe United 0

The UK game retail charts are about as relevant to PC gaming - and indeed gaming as a whole - as Mars Bars are to the red planet, knickers are to a fish or kindness is to the Murdoch dynasty. Nonethless, I feel compelled to mention this week's, purely because they suggest that even the most mainstream field of games isn't as resistent to new…
