THQ Nordic held a Q&A with 8chan, a website de-listed from Google for hosting suspected child porn

"We're doing an 8chan AMA and we have no idea why," announced THQ Nordic on their Twitter account earlier this evening. If you're not aware, 8chan is an imageboard website which has been de-listed from Google search results for hosting "suspected child abuse content," and which is associated with Swatting and Gamergate. THQ Nordic's marketing director has since apologised and claimed ignorance, but both are…

THQ Nordic buy the studios behind Wreckfest and Goat Simulator

THQ Nordic have gobbled up yet more studios, today announcing they've bought Bugbear Entertainment and Coffee Stain Studios. Bugbear are the smash-happy Finnish studio behind racing games including Wreckfest and the first three FlatOuts, while Coffee Stain made FPS tower defence series Sanctum and wack 'em up Goat Simulator as well as publishing games including Deep Rock Galatic. It sounds like they broadly plan to…

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…

Goat Sim Goes Galactic In New Expansion, Out Tomorrow

Just when you thought Goat Simulator [official site] couldn't get any stranger, eh? Beyond the basic premise itself, the parkour update, the MMO spin, GoatZ, the I Am Bread collaboration, the PayDay 2 crossover...deep breath...the latest expansion is taking the bleating blighter on a journey into outer space. Well of course it is. Goat Simulator's Waste of Space expansion is out tomorrow.

Payday 2 And Goat Simulator Swap Goofy Crossover DLC

Checks calendar. Okay, it's not April 1. Checks Steam. There's definitely a store page for it. I guess this is really happening. The latest Payday 2 [official site] heist is themed around...Goat Simulator. And the latest Goat Simulator [official site] DLC is themed around... Payday 2.

Kooky Ooky: I Am Bread & Goat Simulator Team Up

The twin fads of zany physics-based games and Joke Simulator Game Simulator 2013 have mostly passed us by now, so I wonder what'll be the not oh-so-random joke genre to strike it big? Frag montage parody FPSs have been too small for too long to take off, and Sanic Hegehog games have never been fun enough. Maybe I'm out of touch. Well, while we await…

Got Your: GoatZ Adds Survival Tropes To Goat Simulator

You need to get into the spirit of Goat Simulator [official site], I suspect. There's a part of my brain that's eager to dismiss it as "lol so random" YouTube fodder, and a part of my brain that's like, no, I enjoy physics sandboxes just fine too, thanks. The next bit of DLC is making these internal warring factions go thermonuclear: GoatZ adds survival mechanics…

Fetch Quests And Physics: Goat MMO Simulator Expansion

You know, I think I've seen a serious drop-off in zany physics simulators since the release of Goat Simulator. I roam far and wide across the Internet, looking for odd and wonderful new things every day, and say with confidence/wild speculation that Coffee Stain's physics sandbox was a turning point for the genre. After something so brazenly broken, so unashamedly kooky, perhaps doing anything less…

Another Goat Simulator Update, Another Incredible Trailer

Goat Simulator really is just the dumbest thing, isn't it? Naturally, that's why everyone in the whole world loves it and I have a pet goat now. I was surprised (and let's face it: a bit saddened) to find that real goats have functional neck bones and lack tongues that stretch like elastic and stick like gorilla glue, but them's the breaks. Related: do not…

Go(at) Figure: Goat Simulator Update To Add Parkour

FINALLY. As I discovered while horsing goating around for all the world to see, Goat Simulator has literally everything one could possibly conceive of throwing into a videogame. Between its quiet, moving narrative, masterfully measured pacing, tasteful use of whaling sections, allegorical nods to both Shakespeare's entire career and his greatest lost work, The Fifth Element, and 42 hour roadtripping-through-middle-America-with-Oscar-Wilde sequence, it more or less…

Cloven-screen: Goat Simulator Adding Multiplayer

Goat Simulator is pretty much a dicking about simulator but oh, how lonely and pointless it is to dick about by yourself! Perhaps that's the entire reason the goat is acting up. Why, put it in a pen with another real goat and perhaps they'd happily amble about and chew the cud all day long. I suppose we'll find out in May, as developers Coffee…

No Turning Back: Goat Simulator’s Amazing Launch Trailer

If you're still somewhat incredulous at the fact that Goat Simulator is actually a thing, don't worry: you're not alone. But as a connoisseur of dumb jokes taken too far and also RPS' official Goatitor-In-Chief, I must say that I'm impressed with this one's dedication to cloven-footed shenanigans. For one, it's basically Just Cause with a goat, which is literally all I've ever wanted from…
