John Wick Hex review

You don’t play as John Wick in John Wick Hex. Not really. Instead, you play as Keanu Reeves’ choreographer, in close negotiation with the great man’s agent. Want Wick to dash behind cover while throatslamming a goon, then toss them to the floor, grab their gun and shoot a second goon’s ear off before yeeting the empty pistol at a third? That is absolutely within…

You can play John Wick Hex in October, and here’s a trailer to prove it

If after the E3 reveal of John Wick Hex you were updating your gaming calendar and were angered at the lack of a release date, I have calming news for you. The turn-based prequel to Keanu's trilogy of violence will be out on October 8th, which I now realise is disturbingly close. You might say it's only about two wicks away. Anyway, here's Lovejoy and…

Gamescom’s best of the rest: the coolest indies round up

This would not be RPS if I didn't return from Gamescom and write minimally about the triple A-xtravaganzas and maximumly about smaller, weirder things wot I saw. So here, have at it: my favourite of the independently made games I saw at this year's show. I flatter myself that the selection is broad enough that it covers genres to suit every taste. Strategy games! Card…

John Wick (unofficially) becomes a free 8-bit platformer

A lot like the picture above. You might have seen pixel Keanu doing the rounds back in May thanks to a mockup video by the developers of Blazing Chrome, but now you…

Epic Games Store starts its first big sale with a Stories Untold giveaway

It's a busy day over on the Epic Games Store. On top of the expected fortnightly giveaway - this time the excellent horror-adventure Stories Untold - they've launched their first big sale. You can snag Stories Untold here for free, and I highly recommend it even if point & click (or even parser-based) adventures aren't usually your thing. Developers No Code's upcoming followup, the space-disaster…

John Wick Hex turns gun-fu chaos into a tactical puzzle

Of all the developers to head up a John Wick game, Mike Bithell of Thomas Was Alone, Subsurface Circular and Volume is not one I could have predicted. John Wick Hex also looks like a bit of an oddball, genre-wise. It's a pseudo-turn-based tactics game, with players planning Keanu Reeves's every move in order to dodge, parry and shoot his way through each gunfight with maximum…
