Mexican metroidvania Guacamelee! 2 dives into the ring next month

Drinkbox's Guacamelee was one of the most enthusiastically fun metroidvanias released in recent years. Its bright and distinct world of Mexican mythology, Lucha Libre wrestling and terrible puns (plus tired memes, but we'll just gloss over that) were a joy to bounce, dropkick and people's elbow through. As such, it's no surprise I'm entirely on board for its sequel, Guacamelee! 2, now due out on…

Guacamelee! 2 has absolutely zero chicken Illuminati

This is... odd. Guacamelee! 2 has been announced for PC/Steam at PAX. But also, this game was announced for PC last year? So it was unannounced and re-announced, and along the way it became a PlayStation 4 exclusive. And now it isn't. Guys, we're trying to run a news website here and you're making my life a living hell. Stop Press-lighting me. To sum up:…

Guacamelee! 2 bringing more luchador action to 2018

Rowdy luchadors will return for more metroidvania action with Guacamelee! 2 next year, developers DrinkBox Studios have announced. Bad things are happening again, so we'll need to fight them again. This is good news, as our John declared the first game "a cut above the rest, a shining example of the form" as a Metroidvania - but a game blighted by bad boss battles. That…

PC Powerslam: Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship

When punchy platformer Guacamelee! arrived on PC, it came as a shiny Gold Edition packing DLC from the original console release. But then developers DrinkBox fancied it up again with fancy new things for those fancier new consoles as the Super Turbo Championship Edition, meaning we were stuck with just a plain old really fun game. Ugh! Who wants that! But good news, parity-seekers. This…

Garry’s Mod And State Of Decay In Humble Bundle

Say kid, how do you fancy being a YouTube sensation, a real livestream Liberace? "B-but where would I even start?" you ask, eyes wide with hope. A new Humble Weekly Sale offers almost everything you need to become an Internet megastar, minus the hardware and a dreadful persona. Curated by 'PewDiePie' (he has YouTube's most-subscribed channel, don't you know?) the bundle packs a few games…

What’s Yours Is Charity’s: Humble Indie Bundle 11

Another Humble Indie Bundle? What a strange turn of events. I thought for sure that Humble was going to suddenly and inexplicably shut down their massively successful enterprise this time around. I mean, they're on Humble Indie Bundle 11 now. What a gross number. Ten - nay, X - was so svelte, so confident. It plucked the olive from life's martini glass¬†just so, and we…

Release AVALANCHE: Spelunky, Papers, Guacamelee

Are you ready to be positively¬†buried under amazing games? Well too bad. Games are largely distributed via non-physical means now, and that's a weird thing to do with them anyway. Take your sick, fetishistic disc orgies somewhere else. (Note: RPS does not actually discriminate against fetishes. Just physical media.) There are, however, a lot of brand new, positively excellent games suddenly populating our hobby's infinitely…

PlayStation Hit Guacamelee Double-Dipping On PC

RPS Headline Generatron 5000, are you taking side jobs again? We agreed to let bygones be bygones after those puntastic Leviathan: Warships ads, but come on: Guacamelee? You're under contract, and you didn't think we'd notice your obvious handiwork there? This is a heinous betrayal of our trust, and to make matters worse, I can't even come up with a pun to top it in…
