Have You Played… Garry’s Mod (on Fretta servers)?

I'm going to make Have You Played history, and do a game wot we've already done. I know! But this is roughly the 1054th entry (going by our terrifying spreadsheet), and Brendy said we're allowed to revisit games if we've got a good reason to [I'll let this one slide. But never again - Brendan]. He's already asked if you've played Garry's Mod. I'm asking…

The 25 best multiplayer games on PC

Multiplayer games are the best type of games, because they're built around the most interesting components known to humans: humans. Men, women, and an awful lot of children.Internet strangers aren't always the friendliest bunch, but they can surprise you in ways that a static system can't. People form the living, beating hearts of the gaming moments I value the most. Join me, then, as I…

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…

Have You Played… Garry’s Mod?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.I know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for a game that let’s you be a janitor in a school riddled with drug dealers and class clowns. But also a game that will let you be a cop fighting robbers. But also a game…

The Future of Garry’s Mod

There are two versions of Garry's Mod: the standard version that's been in the same shape for a while now, and the beta. The beta, aka GMod 13, is a relatively recent arrival, built to allow Garry to overhaul the whole game without breaking the one everyone's playing. It uncouples the development from the main fork, and that serves two purposes. Firstly, it gives Garry…

A Brief History Of Garry’s Mod: Community Contraptions

According to Garry's Mod creator Garry Newman: "There's so much stuff going on in GMod that it's hard to pull out individual addons. I think the real great thing about GMod is that all these addons exist. It has a rich user contribution community. It keeps itself entertained."It really is impossible to cover everything that the GMod community has made. I tried and gave up,…

A Brief History Of Garry’s Mod: Count To Ten

"It was never meant to be a big deal. I was just fucking about!" says Garry's Mod creator Garry Newman. His innovative physics-based mod for Half-Life 2 turned out to be a remarkably big deal, not least by being a forerunner in iterative and community focused design, and a game that's perennially in Steam's top twenty game stats. It's an exercise in giving gamers tools…

Disgusting Limb Manipulation In GMOD

There's a moment in this video of a new Gmod feature where I start to feel sorry for Breen. He looks at the camera, just as Garry starts to pluck at his very bones, with such sad resignation. His dignity gone, debased for our entertainment.

Garry’s Mod Outwits Pirates, Bans

Unfortunately-named news site Gamepron is reporting that Mr Garry Newman, creator of Garry's Mod, has gone and done something clever: he introduced an error to his game, an error which only affects pirates. It was a trap! Said pirates even turned up on the G-Mod forums to discuss why their game didn't work. Reporting the error even revealed their Steam id. Hilarity ensued. More of…

Living And Breathing In Garry’s Mod

Last week we suggested to RPS contributor Brendan Caldwell that he investigate physics sandbox Garry's Mod, which is a bit like encouraging a kitten to investigate a saucer of gin. We shouldn't have. But with Garry's Mod and its community continuing to evolve like some heavily irradiated practical joke, we needed someone to take a look. Below, Brendan presents his miserable (yet hilarious!) report.

Garry’s Mod + Kinect = Dancing DOG

In a list of inevitable, but glorious things, someone figuring out how to get Kinect working with Garry's Mod appeared near the top. And Bit-Tech brings us wonderful news of its happening. The program allows the user to manipulate objects within Source, taking advantage of the engine's physics. Which primarily involves kicking boxes. And better still, innovator John Boiles has made a truly brilliant video…

I’ve Got Great Big Rocketship

But just how big? Well, I'm glad you asked, because CCP have released a bunch of videos showing off the 3D hangars from Eve Online, which I've posted below. They've done it by race, so you get the full spaceship-porn effect of the various visual themes. What you don't really get is the sense of scale for these things, so I've posted a Garry's Mod…

Father-Mother Loves Plants vs Zombies

Inspired by my recent plea for Zeno Clash/Garry's Mod mash-ups, veteran RPS reader Dartt revisits his own past glory to delightfully strange effect. A bigger version awaits you upon a click. The tragic absence of Tall-Nut aside, most excellent work, sir.

The Zeno-Garry Collective

Oddball birdman-punching game Zeno Clash has just received its first downloadable content - the option to use its beautiful, absurd character models in the world-conquering meta-game/toolset Garry's Mod. Go go crazy, surreal fantasyscapes!

Garry’s Mod Sells More Copies Than Few

Reading Qt3 I was pleased to hear news about Garry's Mod. It's been on Steam for two years. And it's sold... well, take it away, Garry...The popularity took me and Valve by surprise. As soon as it went on sale the steam servers were temporary knocked out, due to the demand. On the first day it sold 5,729 copies. Wowzer. I kind of expected that…
