WW2 Fanfic: Sniper Elite 3 DLC Saves Churchill

You would like to shoot Adolf Hitler, wouldn't you? You wouldn't want Winston Churchill to die, would you? No, you're not a monster, are you? Sniper Elite 3's big DLC packs focus on rewriting history, but it comes off a bit tacky to me. Yesterday brought the first part of a three-chapter DLC campaign about foiling a plot to assassinate Churchill and it's not the…

Scoping Strategies: Sniper Elite 3 Out Now

"German officer, your life force energy is fading."The screenshot made me hope for Treguard's tones but sadly it was not to be. Sniper Elite 3 could have taken the series in a bold new dungeon-crawling direction but further inspection reveals another WWII organ-busting simulator. That's not to say it's not worth your time and precious pennies though. The game is out in Blighty now, having…

Stay On Target: Sniper Elite 3 Multiplayer Trailer

I find Sniper Elite's fascination with face-breaking slow-motion bullet impacts somewhat grotesque, because I'm exactly the kind of hand-wringing, self-loathing videogame journalist the internet commenters warned you about. That doesn't mean I don't like the core idea of hunkering down behind some crumbling buildings, fearing for my life and timidly scanning the treeline for fascists. It only means I'd rather play Sniper Elite V2's multiplayer,…

Penetrating Insight: Sniper Elite 3 Killcam Dev Diary

It's rare that videogame violence makes me feel uncomfortable. After all, it's just polygons, only code. I like the idea of games that purposefully make me feel uncomfortable with the heinous acts I commit - in ways more nuanced or subtle than po-faced script writing, at least. But I don't think that's what Sniper Elite 3 is going for with its X-Ray killcam. I think…

Rebellion’s Evil Genius Online In Open Beta… Again?

I'm getting the strangest feeling of deja vu. Rebellion - developers behind the mediocre Alien Vs Predator reboot, and the abysmal Sniper Elite Nazi Zombie Something nonsense - recently announced a Facebook version of Evil Genius, now in open beta. Um, it's not 2010, right? This already happened. As Alec reported three years ago, a game was up on Facebook and there to play. The…

What’s In Your Head: Sniper Elite – Nazi Zombie Army 2

As we approach the twilight of 2013, I can't engage in my favourite hobby without hitting a zombie. I'm talking, of course, about swinging a dead cat. Before you call the authorities, take note that the cat isn't properly dead and I certainly didn't harm it in any way. The mewling monstrosity is mostly dead, meaning that in some ways it's just another zombie on…

Cast A Beady Eye On This Sniper Elite 3 Trailer

Gaming confession time. I'll tell you all a secret if you respond with one of your own. Here's mine: I have played 31 hours of Sniper Elite V2. I have a good reason, though. I got a bit sucked into the multiplayer. In some way, the multiplayer solved a lot of the issues I had with the single-player game: the levels are non linear, and…

Sniper Elite Nazi Zombie 2 Is Happening For Some Reason

You might remember that John tried out a little bit of Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army a while back. And by "a bit," I mean "a bit over half an hour." Then he quit playing forever, tore out his own brain stem, and offered it as a chew toy for a pack of encroaching, maggot-riddled undead mongrels. Such were the depths of his loathing for…

Deadshot: Sniper Elite – Nazi Zombie Army Is Out

Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army is quite possibly the last game that will ever be made. The title itself is the culmination of everything that has been achieved in the field of interactive entertainment. As the game is now out, I've honoured the occasion by making a short list of important occurrences in the launch trailer. You can find them, and it, below.

Rebellion’s Mystery Game… Sniper Elite With Zombie Nazis

A couple weeks ago, Richard - that mad master of international intrigue and puns, our resident pioneer of spiderfear - stumbled across a teaser video for a mystery project from Sniper Elite creator Rebellion/2000AD. It was all spooky-like and featured running, which is the kind of thing that prompts one of three responses from a person: 1) Zombies? 2) Zombies! or 3) [Drawn-out sigh] ...Zombies.…

Headshotter Well Good: Sniper Elite V2 Expands

Rebellion's Sniper Elite V2 was quite good but not great, wasn't it? Come on, do my job for me, I'm tired. Also lazy. Also playing Retro City Rampage (WIT very soon) has fried my ability to concentrate on anything. Kill me, basically.My point, if indeed I do have one, is that the quite good Sniper Elite V2 has some DLC, and hopefully that is quite…

Feature: Shooting the skin off someone's head?

The RPS Verdict: Sniper Elite V2

World War II shooter Sniper Elite V2 has topped the all-format charts in the UK for the past couple of weeks, which meant it was time to turn the searchlight of RPS judgement on this high flier. Was it one of the great FPS sniping experiences? Or had Rebellion really just given everyone a good excuse to put a bullet in Hitler? Turns out that…

Scope And Gory: Sniper Elite V2 Demo

The demo for Sniper Elite V2 is now available on Steam, having previously been holed up in consoleland, waiting for a chance to break from cover and dash across to nestle inside your tower. Once there, it'll scan the room for enemies to gratuitously shoot in the spleen. The level provided, which has been specially tweaked for demonstration purposes, does contain some sniping, although I…

Feature: "scary firearms instructor"

Hands On: Sniper Elite V2

Being taken to an undisclosed location and surrounded by men chatting idly about firearms is something more associated with hostage situations than press events. And yet here I was. I had accepted RPS’ mission to go out to the countryside and shoot WWII sniper rifles with complete strangers, despite harbouring very straightforward phobias of both bullets and dying of bullets. It’s not that I hate…

Scoping Out Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 And Sniper Elite V2

Morning sniper fans. Remember when there were no sniper related games around? The army's stealthiest strategist has never commanded an audience, preferring camo and a nice bush to kicking down doors and shouting bad things about your various female relatives. But soon there will be two sniper game vying for your beady eyes. I've already spoken a bit about Sniper Elite V2, so the newest…

A Snippet Of Sniper Elite V2 Footage

I still don't quite know if Sniper Elite V2 is as open and as stealthy as I'd like it to be. My hope is that it's a bit like Hidden And Dangerous, just sniper-centric, but then I wake up every morning hoping for that game. This new walkthrough video shows one mission, trying to get an angle to snipe Müller, sliced into tiny chunks, so…

Wait For The (Bullet) Drop: Sniper Elite V2 Killcam Video

If Sniper Elite V2's Killcam of the Week is a thing now, then I'm all for it. Simple, effective delivery of bullets to the brain over distance has always been my favourite thing in games, even better when we get to join the bullet on their journey, to share the excitement of their life's ambition of making a skull's acquaintance. Rebellion's WW2 sniper sim puts…
