It's been just over a week since Google announced their big launch line-up of Stadia games, but with E3 2019 now drawing to a close that list has now become ever so slightly longer, with new tiles such as Ubisoft's Watch Dogs Legion, Square Enix's Marvel's Avengers and more joining the ranks.

Feature: Against the dying of the charts

Steam Charts: rats, rage, rain, and rending

Our former John (RPS in peace) has vanished in odd circumstances, last heard claiming he'll be flying through the sky in a big metal snake, so I'm taking over this week. Not even an employee anymore and he's still making work for me. Join me for a stroll down the hit parade to inspect last week's top-selling games on Steam.

Feature: "Tarty Manymango"

Rage 2 review

Watson Whoopinkoff and Flitwick Mcdimbledick are in an altercation. They're wearing the same (mostly lack of) clothes, and have both taken affront to this. We're in a particularly scummy part of a particularly scummy town, where nobody around pays them much mind. Except me. I stop and watch as insults escalate, until Mcdimble suggests Whoopy stick the robot hand he's holding somewhere untoward. Whoopy knocks…

Rage 2 graphics performance: How to get the best settings on PC

Welcome back to the wasteland, you raving bunch of lunatics, because today's the day that Rage 2 finally blasts its way onto PC. Filled to the brim with tongue-waggling goons and mohawked, tattooed hoodlums with very itchy trigger fingers, the successor to id Software's 2011 post-apocalyptic shooter is now bigger and boomier than ever, thanks in no small part to their collaboration with Just Cause…

Grrr! Rage 2 released

Rage comics may be so over by now but Id Software remain committed to their FPS adaptation of the Internet meme, this morning releasing Rage 2. Their open-world drive-o-shooter imagines a world where everyone raged so much that human civilisation collapsed, turning into a Mad Max-ian wasteland where people drive angry and murder angrier. For the sequel Id have collaborated with Avalanche Studios, the mob…

We need to talk about Rage 2’s keyboard controls

Rage 2 is very almost here on PC, but for a game half-developed by Doom maestros id Software, there is something really quite rotten about the state of Rage 2's default keyboard controls. For as well as having an arsenal of mildly ridiculous guns at your disposal, you also have various special abilities to help you in the heat of battle, such as the sonic…

Danny Dyer ‘aving it large in Rage 2 voice pack

Cheeky cockney sparrow and beloved minor UK television celebrity Danny Dyer will 'ave it large in Rage 2 with a voiceover pack, Bethesda have announced. Which sure is a thing that's happening. God knows how they found out about the star of shows including EastEnders, Danny Dyer's Deadliest Men, and I Believe in UFOS, but I'm glad they did. The world should know. He's going…

Rage 2 release date, gameplay trailer, pre-order bonuses

Rage 2 just had a brand new trailer that showed a good nine minutes of mayhem and destruction. This collaboration between id Software and Avalanche Studios looks to be quite utterly mad, with plenty of new gadgets and vehicles to create a spectacle with.¬†Our guide hub includes all the known information about the game, such as the release date, trailers, and details on the special…

Nine minutes of Rage 2 packs in a mechload of explosions

It's not going to tug on any heartstrings or change the world, but I like what I've seen of Rage 2. Bethesda have just released nine fresh minutes of lightly-cut footage from the Avalanche/Id collaboration shooter, and it's reminding me a lot of both Avalanche's Mad Max and Bulletstorm. We get to see the player acquiring (and tutorial-ing) a new super-power, getting sidetracked on a…

Rage 2 revs up for a May launch

The world may be a barely-habitable hellscape of unending hyperviolence, but that's no reason to be glum according the new Rage 2 trailer. Along with announcing a May 14th launch date and a pre-order page popping up on Bethesda's store (though not Steam, interestingly), The Game Awards last night gave us another look at the Id/Avalanche collaboration in action. The new video features a lot…

It features a look at some of…

Id & Bethesda games going cheap ahead of QuakeCon

The frags will flow like Bawls this weekend at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center, where Id Software are throwing their annual LAN party/convention, QuakeCon. Thousands of gib-hungry gremlins will lug their computers to Texas and many more will loiter around the festivities. It's become more ZenCon in recent years, featuring more from corporate siblings Bethesda and other studios and games owned by ZeniMax…

Tonight we got our first real look at Rage 2, the sequel to Id Software's 2011 post-apocalyptic drive-o-shooter, in its first gameplay video. After Andrew WK and his chums finished rocking out on stage, anyway (a thing that happened, and I was glad to see at 2:30am?).

Rage 2 gameplay trailer explodes out

Bethesda Softworks have blasted a 'gameplay trailer' for Rage 2, following yesterday's terse announcement and unexpectedly colourful live-action music video doodad. This new vid is full of mutants, mechs, cars, guns, and giant throwable fidget spinners. The sequel to Id Software's 2011 post-apocalyptic FPS is drafting help from Avalanche Studios, the mob behind Mad Max and Just Cause, which is a curious and exciting pairing.…

Rage 2 announced with blast of colours

Id Software's 2011 post-apocalyptic first-person drive-o-shooter Rage is finally receiving a follow-up, publishers Bethesda announced today. They do not say much about Rage 2 beyond the fact that it exists, which was kinda already known following a spate of leaks over the past few days. But! Rage 2! That's good. The original game's carfights were a bit bland and the whole thing smashed into its…
