Feature: Music to your ears

The best game soundtracks you can listen to for free right now

Another month, another big video game publisher puts a great big dollop of video game music online for zero pennies. This time, it's Bandai Namco, who have just uploaded every single Tekken soundtrack onto Spotify because, well, apparently everyone loves Tekken. I've never partaken in a Tekken, but with track names like "Massive Stunner" and "Lonesome City Jazz Party 1st", I'm already 100% convinced the…

Feature: Every Stadia game coming at launch and beyond

Every Google Stadia game announced so far

Google held another one of their Stadia Connect conferences today, and this one was meant to be all about what games you'll be playing in the "scary" cloud come November. Sure enough, there were new Stadia games aplenty announced this evening, with the biggest addition being Cyberpunk 2077. To help keep track of them all, here's a list of every Google Stadia game confirmed so…

Feature: Listen to these dads

Podcast: What do we play with our kids?

The dadification of games continues. So we’re going full Dad this week on the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, as we’ve been asked to talk about the games we play with our children. Alec’s daughter is excited by the unlockable characters in Rayman Legends (and she’s also strangely fascinated by Battletech). John’s son is a bit younger and likes to watch his dad diving…

The fraught world of buying a game for an 11 year old

Somehow, in gaming's fourth decade, we're still endlessly confronted by the peculiar mainstream misconception that video games are meant for children. The peculiarity that this myth maintains is outright ludicrous at this point, because gaming itself is now mainstream. Sure, in the early '90s you could forgive a confused aunt for not realising that cartoony console games like Mario and Sonic had broad appeal, and…

Have You Played… Rayman Legends?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. 2013’s Rayman Legends is the most recent game I’ve been playing with my three-year-old daughter, and by ‘playing’ I mean ‘she watches me play while asking approximately 80 Why? questions per minute.’

Where DRMs Come True: Ubisoft Opening Theme Park

Haven't you always wanted to meet Sam Fisher and take home a photo of him pretending to snap your neck? Why not bungee from a Venetian rooftop into a haystack (don't worry, it's not real hay!)? Dare you ride a rollercoaster named Uplay? All these dreams and more may very well - let's say it: will almost definitely - come true, as Ubisoft have announced…

Rayman – Legumes review

Rayman: Legends Legumes is the sequel to the unexpectedly brilliant Rayman: Origins Oranges. The latter, starring a character that I had little interest in and whose style of running and jumping didn't seem particularly suited to the PC, was one of my favourite games of last year. With that in mind, I approached Legumes without any prejudice but instead with a deep-seated cynicism. I am…

Arm Yourself: Ubisoft Confirms Rayman Legends

In retrospect, it'd be kind of silly to name a game "Origins" and then bury the franchise immediately afterward, wouldn't it? And so, somewhat unsurprisingly, Ubisoft's given an official magically levitating thumbs-up to all the Rayman scuttlebutt that's been floating around for the past couple days. Specifically, the game's called Rayman Legends, and - true to the leaked screenshots and video (after the break, courtesy of…
