Feature: Words in the correct order

Steam Charts: Taxidermy Edition

A lot of people have tried to argue over the years that it's simply impossible to collate the top ten selling games on Steam from the last week, and then write a small comment accompanying each, beneath a screenshot. But today, for the first time, we hope to prove those people wrong.

Feature: So much hot air

Steam Charts: Pre-Congeal Edition

As the charting games on Steam once more congeal into a single amorphous lump, quickly dive in to catch the last appearance of Subnautica, and probably Slay The Spire too. Next week it'll just be GTA: Counter-Strike - Witcher Battlegrounds.

Kingdom Come Deliverance mod adds unlimited saving

Kingdom Come: Deliverance deliberately doesn't allow you to save the game whenever you feel like it, insisting that you either buy or brew a bottle of something called Saviour Schnapps first. It's a heady beverage that saves your game even as it gets you drunk, and by the sounds of things it doesn't seem too easy a beverage to come by. While the game does…

Kingdom Come – Deliverance review

“Elder Scrolls without the magic,” is the elevator pitch for Warhorse's historical RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance, but magic is a relative term - it all depends on what you're used to. The game's stringent recreation of alchemy may seem downright paranormal, for example, if you're used to the streamlined, fire-and-forget approach of a game like Skyrim. Given how many dungeons, dragons and mages RPGs tend…

The most exciting games of 2018

As we lay 2017 to rest, let us remember all of the wonderful games that flickered across our screens and occupied our hearts and minds. But now we must promise never to think of them again because times have changed. This is 2018 and if we've learned one thing from the few hours we've spent in it it's that there are games everywhere. Every firework…

I love Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s skill trees

The enormous open world is attractive and enticing, but it's Kingdom Come: Deliverance's skill trees that made me a believer in this historical RPG. Rather than providing mild improvements to sword-handling or stamina, the things you learn are traits that change the way your character interacts with the world and the people in it. It all suggests I'll be creating a person with knowledge and…

Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s latest video breaks down the combat system

Kingdom Come: Deliverance, the historical RPG set in the 14th century, will feature rather a lot of brawling with grunting, armoured men, so Warhorse Studios has put together a detailed video on how the game’s combat system works. The studio is going for realism, basing the fighting techniques on medieval martial arts, so it looks a bit more involved than simply swinging your sword and…

Brian Blessed charges into Kingdom Come: Deliverance

I would say "Sound the Brian Blessed warning alarm!" but goodness me, the man is his own warning alarm. Surely you'll hear him long before you meet him in Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site]. Yup, Brian Blessed (aka Blesso, the Blesser, Bless Up, the Blessinator, and BeeBee) has lent his voice and face to a character in the open-world medieval RPG. In a new dev…

On abusing the peasants in Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site] is about the ring of steel on steel, the august machinery of feudal politics and the intricacies of village society. It's also about throwing turds at houses, as I discovered during a hands-off showing of the game's prologue area. The house in question belongs to a man who has been singing the virtues of the German-backed Hungarian invasion of Bohemia…

Come Get Yer Armour In Kingdom Come: Deliverance

This is a grown man being kicked in the chest while wearing a full suit of armour. The folks behind Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site], the medieval RPG that is replacing magic, goblins and fantasy with realistic combat and rotting food, have released a development diary showing off the armour system while playing dress-up. It's extensive. While most games of its ilk would be satisfied…

Kingdom Come: Deliverance Delayed Till Next Year

Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site], you may recall, is Warhorse Studios' heartily-crowdfunded medieval RPG that drops fantasy in favour of realism. It's a novel idea - stripping the genre of orcs, magic and dragons; instead focusing on meticulous combat, stat-building and consequence-bearing dialogue - and its CryEngine-powered getup has so far impressed in both its astute sword fighting sequences and moments of reflection.Originally scheduled to…

The Complex Combat Of Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site] is a crowd-funding success story about hitting knights with swords in first person. It's aiming to be a realistic RPG, where levelling up and getting loot will help you out, but there will be no magic, no goblins and your skill with a sword will determine your fate more than your stat line. That combat has been detailed in a…

Kingdom Come’s Storm Of Cryengine-Powered Swords

This looks like people actually fighting. Like, properly clobbering each other with swords and boots and such. Whatever else successfully Kickstarted (and its own subsequent campaign, which combined has brough in well over $2m) medial RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance [official site] ends up doing well or poorly, it's gone to town on solid-looking, crunchy animation.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance’s Rural Idyll

Kingdom Come: Deliverance makes medieval life look so pleasant in its latest trailer. Developers Warhorse have built something beautiful in CryEngine, and are showing off its fields, ponds, meadows, sheep, villages, and taverns in little slices of life. How splendid. They don't show any of the warfare the open-world not-fantasy RPG's actually built around, though. Still, just imagine men with swords hitting each other in…
