The decade, as told in grappling hooks

The last ten years have brought us many joys. We've already celebrated the best games of the past decade, but with such scattergun nomination comes neglect. Only three of the fifty games we picked had grappling hooks, so clearly the entire endeavour was pointless and you will need an alternative resource. Here's my definitive guide to the swinging tenties. I haven't mentioned Worms, because they…

Have You Played… the Just Cause 2 multiplayer mod?

When Graham asked if you'd played Just Cause 2, he (correctly) spent most of his time praising the extent of its wanton destruction. Then he claimed that the multiplayer mod "lets you wreak the same havoc – and much more – in huge multiplayer servers." I don't think he realises how right he was.

Have You Played… Just Cause 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Just Cause 2 [official site] doesn't have a great mission in its entire running length, although it has some pretty OK ones. What it does have is a beautiful, diverse open world in which to wreak havoc of the most over the top…

Introducing JetGetters, A Fusion Of Just Cause 2 And BF3

"We are about to reveal a new game!" No Time To Explain dev/burgeoning indie publisher Alex Nichiporchik told me over Skype. Almost reflexively, I braced myself for an excited slurry spew about some crazy new platformer or a zany comedy adventure or an emotional tale that would rock me to my very core. "It's basically a fusion of Just Cause 2 and Battlefield 3," he…

Impressions: Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Mod

Just Cause 2's weapons felt weedy and its missions were mostly repetitive and forgettable. It doesn't matter. I've spent fifty hours floating across the tropical islands of Panau with an infinite supply of parachutes, watching the sun set behind snowy mountains. I've flown hot air balloons to mysterious, stormy islands, crashed airliners into the ocean just because I could, and tethered more hapless guards to…

Just Cause 3 Ready To Explode?

VG247 has word that Avalanche are (reportedly) working on Just Cause 3. Which is both pleasing and disappointing at the same time. Pleasing because, hey, the last Standing Not Looking At Explosions Simulator was pretty ace, and disappointing because I had sort of hoped that the awesome Avalanche team might try and do something else open-worldy, rather than revisiting the island-busting stunt-murderer.

Just Cause 2 Ignoro Gallery, Just ‘Cause

I've been replaying Just Cause 2 in my spare time of late. I remember my absolutely loving it, and then finding the ludicrous fun was spoiled by the difficulty ramping up far too far, and the game getting in the way of itself. So thinking it would be fun to muck around with it some more, this time I set things to Casual and began…

Postcards From Panau

Road/River/Desert/Mountain Trip! After spending seventeen hours with Just Cause 2 completing the single player and doing everything and anything stupid enough to enter my skull, I'd discovered about a third of all the settlements in the game, and had only found one or two interesting locations that aren't on the map. Obviously, this had to be rectified. The best way to do this is a…

Just Cause 2: ULTIMATE HIGH JINX

Fine, fine, let's talk about a game that requires a graphics card for the first time today. RPS: bridging the hardware generation gap. Walker's currently busy pirouetting around Just Cause 2's lavish island for an upcoming Wot I Think (we had some technical problems with the review code, I believe, hence the short delay), but as the entirety of Twitter seems to be talking about…

Play This Demo. Why? Just Cause

That gag never gets old. Alternatively, it's always been unbearably ancient, which is just how I like 'em. Wait, that sounds wrong. Anyway: 1.3Gb of Just Cause 2 demo is now available on Steam. Haven't tried it yet, as it's only just arrived, but go forth and ascertain whether Walker's incessant frothing about the trailers has been justified or not. Also, grapple stuff to other…

UnJust Cause: No XP Support

As a sad coda to the happy-party we all had about the Just Cause 2 trailers a few hours back, word's out that the unhinged free-roamer won't work on Windows XP. It's a DirectX10-only game, so even if you have a relatively recently 3D card you'll need Vista or Windows 7 if you want to fire grappling hooks at planes. Probably, anyway - there've been…

Hard Surface: Just Cause 2 Trailers

Can Just Cause 2 really be as good as the expectations being raised by the trailers? Oh sweet hairless Moby on a tricycle, I hope so. But perhaps I've just stumbled upon the real reason behind BioWare's marketing campaign for Dragon Age! They could have released it as a Disney movie tie-in third-person platformer and it would have felt like a better game than we…

FREEDOM! Just Cause 2 Paints Its Face Blue

As we all agree, the most important thing in gaming is realism. It's the only thing I want in a game, the only thing I care about. Just so long as the experience is as close to replicating reality as is possible, then I'm happy. For instance, just now I'm playing this game where I update a website with a video of a game. Oh…

Hovercraft Want: Just Cause 2 DLC Trailer

I don't think the initials "DLC" quite fill us with the thrill that they were once intended to. Instead this promise of extra content for our games - something that you'd immediately assume would render us happy - now carries with it that little tone of dread: how will it go wrong this time? But how strong is that feeling? What happens when you combine…

The Year Ahead, Part One

Below is the first part of our intricate guide for PC gaming in 2010. There's a horde of muscular-looking titles on the horizon, many of them likely to stop you and demand your money, like ludological bandits. Meanwhile, others that we expected to land, such The Old Republic, have already fled to 2011. Read on as the clouds in our crystal ball roll back...
