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…

Cuphead expansion leaping to 2019

Charming shoot-o-platformer Cuphead is getting an expansion next year, developers Studio MDHR announced today. Named 'The Delicious Last Course', it'll take Cuphead and Mugman to a new island for new adventures with a new friend--and playable character--Ms. Chalice. Ah, just watching the announcement trailer gets me bopping in my seat.

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

Cuphead patch squashes bugs, including one that should be a feature

Cuphead’s fetishisation of difficulty and the air of smugness perpetrated by some of the louder parts of its community unfortunately put me off the finger-gun platformer, but if anything could have made me give it another chance, it would have been the ability to summon an army of anthropomorphic cups. Lamentably, this bug, along with many others, has been squashed in the latest update.

Digital deals so far this week

Once more, we've made it to the very middle section of the week - right there in between a weekend and another weekend. What better time to indulge in some digital video game niceness? Incidentally, this also happens to be the week before the international commerce festival that is Black Friday 2017. We've already got a guide to the best PC gaming Black Friday stuff…

Cuphead is now out. CUPHEAD!

Our cup runneth over, then it runneth away to shooteth enemies. The mighty Cuphead [official site], a shooty platformer with smooth jazz and a gorgeous hand-animated style using techniques of 1930s cartoons, is now out. After several years of shouting CUPHEAD at each other, we can finally play. Don't mistake its fun style for an easy game, mind, as Cuphead will drink you up and…

Cuphead runneth over and releases Sept 29th

On September 29th, Cuphead [official site] will cease to be the game that I most look forward to seeing at E3 every year because it'll actually be released. Even though I'm looking forward to playing it, this makes me sad. Since its first appearance, it has become a reassuring presence, a cheeky wink from a place and time far removed from the regular trailer diet…

Cuphead? Cuphead! Cuphead Delayed Into 2017

Flip me, Cuphead [official site] still looks gorgeous. The run 'n' gun platformer is styled after 1930s cartoons, see, with the beautiful bouncing hand-drawn style and horrific anthropomorphisation of everyday creatures and items that always unsettled me as a child. Always nice to revisit childhood horrors, yeah? Alas, we'll need to wait a while longer. Cuphead was expected to launch some time this year but…

Runneth Over: Cuphead Is Now A Full Platformer

The last time we saw Cuphead it was at E3 2015 and the game, styled like an early 20th century cartoon, was all about defeating devious boss characters. Now E3 2016 looms and the game has returned, only now it's not just about beating bosses but about jumping and bopping heads across traditional platformer levels. And it still looks amazing.

Good, Strong: Cuphead Overflows With 1930s Cartoon Style

Cuphead splits me right down the middle. It's a run-and-gun game about one-on-one fights, which means it's about learning attack patterns, dodging enemies, and striking back through multiple waves to eventually destroy them. It's inspired by the likes of Contra and Mega Man, games which aren't really my thing. It's also using hand-drawn cel animation, watercolour backgrounds and live jazz recordings to mimic the style…
