Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The 50 best FPS on PC

The best shooters endure. While the state of the art moves on in other genres and leaves old designs in the dust, it's as fun to fire a well-made shotgun from an early 90s FPS as from one released today. For that reason, this list runs the gamut from genre classics to those released in the last year. There's bound to be something for you…

2016 GotY Devil Daggers summoned on GOG

Our favourite game of 2016, Devil Daggers, has escaped the shackles of Steam and is now sold on GOG too. It's not of this world, a brutal score attack arena FPS which swarms with skulls and communicates by roars, hisses, and wibbles. If you're particular about storefronts and have been holding out, get stuck in. Even if you're not into the idea of an intense…

These Devil Daggers mods are a great reason to head back to hell

Devil Daggers turned two last month, so I went looking for ways to celebrate. What's the world record by now, I wondered? In this hellscape of an arena shooter in which most people struggle to get past the 60 second mark, someone's managed to last an utterly flabbergasting 18 and a half minutes. That video awaits below, but more exciting still is my round up…

Feature: The best bargains

Steam summer sale: our giant recommendations list

The Steam summer sale is in full blaze. For a while it even blazed so hot that the servers went on fire and all the price stickers peeled off the games. Either that or the store just got swamped with cheapskates looking for the best bargains. Cheapskates like you! Well, don’t worry. We’ve rounded up some recommendations - both general tips and some newly added…

The 23 best bite-size games for busy lives

I am dad, hear me whinge. Too many games, not enough spare time, for all my non-work hours are spent kissing grazed knees, explaining why you cannot eat the food in that cupboard, constructing awful Lion King dioramas out of toilet roll tubes and being terrified that the next jump from the sofa to the armchair will go fatally wrong. I'm lucky in that my…

Feature: A cold, dark and gentle place

In their haste to make “soulslikes”, devs have forgotten what makes Dark Souls unique – its level design

I finally completed Dark Souls III [official site] last week, a world that I have been dipping in and out of between bouts of listlessness since its release in April last year. It didn’t grip me like the first revered Dark Souls, but it still made me sad to know it was all over. Where could I go now for my Souls fix? The answer,…

Feature: The week's best free games!

Free Loaders: Launching Devil Daggers Into Space

There was a GameBoy jam this week and everything has gone slightly green. Sprites have taken over the free games mines and are playing non-stop chiptune down there. I can barely show my face in all my regular cyberspots because I’m just not pixellated enough. It was difficult to get you a haul of free games this week, is what I’m saying. So you’d better…

Devil Daggers & Prison Architect In New Humble Bundle

In case you've not picked up on all the hints: Devil Daggers [official site] is my favourite new game of 2016, and I'd say the best-looking game in yonks too. Devil Daggers is Geometry Wars thrown against a satanic altar in a darkened room made of Quake [see me -metaphors ed.]. I do recognise a leaderboard-climbing first-person shooter in skull-filled satanarena is a hard sell…

Devil Daggers Summons New Skulls, Top-Down Replays

New satanskulls are now roaming the darkness of Devil Daggers [official site], thanks to an update launched today. Along with new enemies, the 'V3' update has added a top-down viewing mode for replays, which makes the FPS's arena shoot 'em up stylings even clearer. It's both cool to look at and helpful, as finally I can learn about the horrors I only ever hear behind…

From DOOM ‘Til DUSK: A New ‘Classic’ FPS Murderthon

Hello, murder fans. We’ve already played DOOM and QUAKE and OTHERS, but the demand for caps-locked first-person shooters with gibs and chaos somehow seems to grow. So here is DUSK [official site], an FPS from publisher New Blood, which is paying tribute to the classics of the genre the only way it knows how: by killing everything in sight with shotguns, scythes and explosives. It…

The RPS Summer Games: Devil Daggers

The last of the high-score events on the RPS Summer Games schedule is Devil Daggers [official site]. A glorious first person arena shooter with a graphical style determined to catapult us back into the nineties. I admired it from afar when it came out, but around half the staff got really competitive, sneaking off for "email" breaks which coincided with a "so-and-so is playing Devil…

Dark Gift: Devil Daggers Adds New Enemies, Mac Version

It's been almost one day since we last posted about Devil Daggers [official site] and I agree with you: that is too long. And since then, developers Sorath have released a major update for the arena survival FPS. It brings two new enemy variants and fresh new leaderboards to accompany them, a field of view slider, a Mac version, and new ways for cackling skulls…

Satanic Savings: Devil Daggers Is Steam’s Daily Deal

We're awfully fond of Devil Daggers [official site] round here, full of quivering praise for the hellish arena survival shooter and in awe of how good some players are. It's a flipping great video game. But I know some of y'all have reservations - dear, sweet, naive reservations - about a leaderboard-climbing FPS with one mode and one level, and might have looked for it…

The Bestest Best Games Of 2016 So Far

We usually do our enormous GAMES OF THE YEAR posting fest at the end of the year (as would seem logical) but because it seems silly to reserve praise for special occasions we're doing a Games Of The Half Year collection to tell you about everything we've loved playing so far. It can double as a summer holiday recommendations list too! We've listed ours in…

Feature: Desktop Theater mode makes standard games massive

What It’s Like To Play Non-VR Games In Steam VR

We already knew that Valve was planning something called Steam Desktop Theater, in which non-VR games could be used within their Vive headset (and, indeed, any other headsets which end up supporting the SteamVR APIs), but I wasn't expecting to see it until the first giant boxes full of matte-black hardware arrived at pre-orderers' houses. Turns out that Valve snuck out a beta update to…

Devil Daggers’ New World Record Is Out of This World

If the rest of us keep struggling to surpass the 90 seconds mark, it's because Devil Daggers [official site] wasn't made for me, or for you. It was made for them. Governmental agencies the world over are keeping track of the leaderboards, to identify the first humans to develop super-human abilities and try to contain them before they become self-conscious. Before it's too late. And…

This Is What Being Top Of The Leaderboard In Devil Daggers Looks Like

Devil Daggers is brilliant, as Adam explained in his review. It's a first-person arena shooter with shades of Quake. Part of its appeal is that it doesn't explain anything about how it's overlapping enemies and few systems work, meaning each life and death is a process of discovery. Another part of its appeal, however, is that you can press a button on its leaderboard and…
