The best platform games on PC

The biggest names in platforming used to live only on console, but it's on PC now that the genre is thriving. Indies have taken the simple ingredients and spun them off in umpteen directions (but still normally from left to right). Below you'll find a collection of the very best platform games on PC - including puzzle platformers, physics platformers, platformers with roguelike elements, and…

Podcast: Into The Breach, Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds and “running away”

Cowardice is a virtue. So says the team on this week's RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. That's because our theme is "running away" - games that encourage you to flee from danger, or that give you a choice between fight and flight. Adam will run from the soldiers of Arma or the post-apocalyptic antagonists of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Brendan will scarper from poor odds in For…

BioShock, Firewatch, Dishonored & More: How Well Do Non VR Games Work In VR?

I've got two VR headsets in my inappropriately small home, and I spend more time feeling guilty that I'm not using them than I do using them. Conceptually I love the tech, and I sporadically have a fine time with 'experiences' - i.e. virtual tourism to real or made-up places - when it comes to games-games I'm yet to get all that much out of…

10 Games Run Through The Prisma Photo Filter App

You might have noticed all your friends' avatars and profile pictures turning into comic book drawings or impressionistic paintings over the last few weeks. That's because of Prisma, a photo editing app for iOS and Android that let's you apply a couple of dozen filters to images you feed it. The app goes further than simply messing with the hue like Instagram does, using a…

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst’s Gamescom Demo Was A Relief

I wouldn't count myself as a fan of many things, but the derision and disinterest inspired by the first Mirror's Edge makes me want to champion it. It was a game with terrible boss fights, flawed combat and a tedious story, but also one worth celebrating for the things it got right, such as its first-person movement and its beautiful, brilliant world. Those same things…

Have You Played… Mirror’s Edge?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.Some people install the latest Crysis game whenever they buy a new PC, to push their upgraded hardware to its limit. I install Mirror's Edge. If I want to feel good about my purchase, then Mirror's Edge succeeds by being as unfailingly gorgeous now…

Height Fantastic: Hover’s Trailer Is All Over The Place

But in a good way! Titanfall's wall-running and super-fun leaping is the second best thing about Repawn's multiplayer game. Being able to watch others do it is my favourite thing about it: seeing them curve across gaps, leaping like leapy things, and dancing across levels. I love it. I love that moment at the very beginning of a level, when your small group peels off…

On Edge: A Chat With Robert Briscoe

This is the latest in the series of articles about the art technology of games, in collaboration with the particularly handsome Dead End Thrills.Robert Briscoe is obviously not the only great environment artist in games, and it's a bit weird to say he has a singular portfolio after working on just two titles. What makes it a lot easier is if you think in terms…

If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you might miss them. The pretties this week come courtesy not of a particular game, nor indeed me, but of the Dead End Thrills Flickr group, a…

Disposable Worlds And Imagining Brink 2

Playing Brink this weekend made me worry. But not about the usual things. I was worried that there would never be another way to experience the details of its world - no possibility for further exploration of the Ark and its precarious situation. This isn't something I normally think about when faced with a multiplayer shooter. I certainly had no interest in finding out more…

S-hardly Fair: Mirror’s Edge 2 Canned?

Edit: Superior translation added, courtesy of RPS reader Shadewind.All aboard the speculation train to Miseryville! VG24/7 reports that Swedish site Press2Play has posted an article (Googletranslate version here) detailing a brief chat with DICE General Manager Patrick Soderlund in which he describes that development of the sequel to the 2008 parkour-inspired adventure game has "stalled". Then again, he also says that "the parties involved in…

Blunt Edge: Tim Langdell Is Suing EA

I've written about this already, so I'll just leave it as a link for you fine people and let nature take its course. But yes, the saga continues: the notorious Tim 'Edge Games' Langdell is trying to arrange an injunction against and damages from EA's Mirror's Edge. That he's after the biggest of all targets this time - well, it's either proof of just how…

RUN: Mirror’s Edge Editor Jimmied Free

Beyond Unreal have picked up on the Mirror's Edge community discovering something interesting. More details in the link, but basically involves copying the wxRC and wxRes folders from UT3\Binaries to Mirror's Edge\Binaries and then running the Mirror's Edge executable with an editor modification thingy to the file's properties. Here's a custom map the community have magicked up. You may have to be quick, however. Chatting…

Mirror’s Edge Third Person Hack

Alec pinpoints Mirror's Edge's failures and successes like a laser-guided missile of critical accuracy in last week's Wot I Think. When playing it recently, I was extremely surprised to find the game making mistakes that were ironed out of the Tomb Raider/Prince of Persia games years ago, as I haplessly tried to guide the suicidal Faith away from her determined attempts to plunge off every…

Wot I Think: Mirror’s Edge

Here comes an awkward metaphor: Mirror’s Edge (the delayed PC version of which was finally released last week) is hiding in the closet. Unsurprisingly, this only makes life difficult for it. For every moment it pretends to be an FPS, it feels wrong, and to any onlooker it’s visibly uncomfortable in this assumed role. If only it would cast off this sham and reveal its…

Ninth Art Meets Tenth Art: Games To Comics

I found myself chatting to Rhianna Pratchett yesterday about her just released comics spin-off of Mirror's Edge. Well - the first part of six anyway (First pages here). It's been interesting for her. As she tells to CBR, it's her first work in the medium, and she had to do some serious thinking about its strengths and limitations before doing so. Which got me casually…
