No Yolk: Dizzy’s Back

Update: Confirmed as Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk, but for iOS and Android only. Bah! Dizzy: a smiling egg-man controlled in assorted platform-puzzle-adventures by old European men such as I back in the late 80s and early 90s. For some reason (perhaps because he wasn't the figurehead of a console company; perhaps because the key devs left to start their own company; perhaps because he…

Does It Need The Number? Insane 2

When I saw the announcement for Insane 2, which is out a little later this year, something stirred, deep in the lost vaults of my head. Insane. Yes. Why do I know that name? A bit of Googling later and I realise that the original insane (which cleverly anticipated the letter-as-numbers-in-sequels thing by being called 1nsane, which surely means this one should be called In2ane)…

One Red Light: F1 2011 Launch Trailer

"Codemasters: Birmingham" really doesn't have the same ring to it as "Eidos: Montreal" or "2K Czech" does it? But despite its inauspicious origins, their F1 2011 is looking pretty snazzy. Also, from my non-F1-caring-about perspective, massively daunting. It reminds me of when F1GP2 came out in 1734, and my tiny brain couldn't understand why you'd play a game where touching gravel once in three hours…

A More Human Race: F1 2011 Co-Op Video

Codemasters have already talked about their multiplayer focus for F1 2011. Cynics might think that’s because people were upset about the AI last time out so they’re hoping we'll replace it all with real people. Imagine that. Your friends may be part of a nefarious plan to improve a game. This new video is all about the co-op championship mode, which will allow you and…

Grand Auto Theft: 3m DIRT 3 Keys Nicked

News that an eyebrow-raising 3 million Steam activation codes for natty racing title DIRT 3 had been leaked online broke earlier today, and now has an official oh-dear air to it as a result of confirmation from AMD that, yes, the codes were intended for vouchers that shipped with their Radeon graphics cards and yes, a database file containing them was purloined by bad eggs.…

Codies Announce A Different F1 Game

Codies are apparently working on another F1 game (as distinct from the standard full-priced simulatoryish racing game offering) which will be a free-to-play thingum snappily entitled F1 Online. It is powered by that lovely Unity engine, and as such will appear in a browser, allowing you to manage a Formula One team but do some fancy (what appears to be top-down Micro-Machines style) racing against…

Codemasters Flaunt Some F1 2011 Footage

Codies have let loose a developer diary for their forthcoming F1 2011, which shows off polite Englishmen explaining their work, combined with plenty of healthy-looking game footage. It also reveals that the focus this time is in getting people to play online with "16-player races" and also a co-op campaign mode so that you can play through a season with a team-mate. There's going to…

Red River To Enter “Valley Of Death”

Operation Flashpoint: Red River is going to get an eight-mission DLC pack in "late June". The DLC pack is called VALLEY OF DEATH. All eight missions support single-player and co-op modes of play, and cover all the various game modes. Codies say: "Two new Combat Sweep missions, two new CSAR missions, two new Last Stand missions and two new Rolling Thunder missions are set across…

Lord Of The Rings Euro On The Move

Lord Of The Rings Online is to be entirely taken over by Turbine, Eurogamer reports. Until now the European servers have been in the hands of Codemasters, who seem to cling on to existence via their Codies Online Gaming hosting MMOs. But from the 1st June, the developers will be operating all their servers worldwide. Why tell you? Because if you're a player you're going…

Soldier’s Pings: Red River Dev Diary #3

Oof! I was all set to make fun of Codemasters for releasing yet another Operation Flashpoint: Red River video from their curiously dilapidated offices, but I've just found out that Red River is coming out in Europe this very Thursday. Why would you want to buy it? First and foremost for its explosions, but also for its focus on four player co-op, and that's what…

Red River Runs Co-Operative, Or Something

Ah-ha! This is what we like to see: a trailer made of lots of game footage that details exactly how things will play out. It's a glimpse of 4-player co-op mission from Operation Flashpoint: Red River in which the players perform a search and rescue operation for downed pilots in a river valley. It gives a good (although jumpily edited) impression of how the co-op…

Friends Of The Earth: Dirt 3’s Party Mode

Codemasters announced today that Dirt 3 will include a party mode. Dirty parties, one presumes? Rally cars gracelessly mounting other rally cars, and huffing great cupfuls of cocaine through their grilles? Alas no. Dirt 3's party mode will all be good, clean, online fun, and Codies have invented three special new multiplayer modes which resemble playground games than anything else. Details after the jump.

Rally, Rally Fast: Dirt 3 Group B Trailer

Have we used that joke before? Definitely. But hopefully the following fact will distract you- the trailer after the jump shows off the Group B rally cars that'll be in Dirt 3 (releasing this May). You can read about Group B cars here, but basically Group B was a new set of regulations for building rally cars introduced in 1982 that meant the cars could…

Op Fap Red River: Shifting Focus Trailer

Here at RPS, we love the Chinese. Steam buns? Alright by us! The Great Wall? Heck of a wall, that. Mr. Miyagi? What a guy. But what if you hated the Chinese? Well, then I guess you'd get a kick out of the latest Operation Flashpoint: Red River trailer, which awaits you below and introduces the Chinese army as enemies. I want to go on…

Red River Videos Show The Best Explosion

Morning sir! Alright, I think I've got everything. Here are your two eggs, done just how you like them. There's the toast, buttered on both sides as you requested. Here's the bacon, also buttered on both sides. There's your coffee. There's the coffee pot. There's the second coffee pot. Your morning manshoots? But of course, sir. You'll find them under that silverware dome. It's Operation…

Operation Flashpoint: Red River Impressions

After an hour spent waiting around in belly of London’s only Tajik restaurant, a fifteen minute presentation on Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising’s refinement into Red River and a testosterone-powered 5 minute briefing video, I’m pumped hard and tight like a bicycle tire. Soldiers! Camaraderie! Death! All under an untrustworthy and powerfully foreign Eurasian sky. What followed was painful and awesome in equal measure, and you…
