This virtual museum lets you try the lockpicking minigames from loads of different games

Ages ago I learned how to lockpick in real life, and ever since I've been so impressed at how video games emulate the feeling of managing to crack a lock open. I think maybe it's the noise, that signature *clunk* that makes it so satisfying. It's a staple of RPGs like Skyrim, where lockpicking is literally a skill you can level up. But loads of…

No One Lives Forever fixed up a bit in new fan patch

You may not be able to buy No One Lives Forever outside the second-hand market these days, but if you do have it you'll now find it a lot friendlier to revisit. Modman Jacob Breen has made a "modernisation patch" fixing up performance, UI, and resolution issues to make the much-beloved spy-fi stealth FPS feel less like, well, a game released 19 years ago. It…

DOS Boot: No One Lives Forever deserves to live on

DOS Boot is just Brock digging into old DOS/Windows games and talking half-remembered cool and bizarre experiences that are only available on abandon-ware sites at this point. Weekends should be for having fun and by god, we're going to have some wholesome gosh dang fun on RPS Weekends. Nearly a month back, I proposed that we all play No One Lives Forever -- a game…

Let’s make a pact to play No One Lives Forever

So I'm going to be real honest: I haven't been a participating member of the RPS site in a year or two. I got burned out on video game news and gamer culture and all of the like. It has been a nice surprise to come back here and find the RPS community exactly as I left it: chock full of good folks who appreciate…

You Will NOLF True FEAR: Betrayer Out Now

Once upon a time Monolith made the candy/1970s-colored No One Lives Forever, but then the years passed and the colors drained away. The result? F.E.A.R., which traded NOLF's yuck-yuck-yucks for some spooky, splattery "oh... yucks." Flash forward to today: all of the color is gone, with six Monolith vets producing the gloomily black-and-white Betrayer. It's got scares in spades and thick cobwebs of dread lingering in…

No One Lives Forever Rights Nowhere To Be Found

No One Lives Forever was basically the greatest. This is an incontrovertible truth of the universe. The unabashedly groovy stealth shooter (and its sequel; though not blah blah blam blam spin-off Contract J.A.C.K) was equal parts silly and smart, with a peeling back of the proverbial weaponized banana peel yielding everything from lowbrow stereotypes to startlingly nuanced dissections of sexism and the criminal mind. Also,…
