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…

Steam Charts: Red Dead Redemption 2 Edition!

OK, look, it isn't a Red Dead Redemption 2 edition, because Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't out for PC yet. But if I keep typing Red Dead Redemption 2 into this Google is going to be SO TRICKED and the clicks will pour in and Graham will give me a promotion!

Nvidia RTX 2080Ti vs GTX 1080Ti: Clash of the 4K graphics cards

Last week, after much hype and excitement, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card was finally unleashed on the world. Today, it's the turn of its beefed-up big brother, the RTX 2080Ti, whose release was delayed by a week for reasons lost to the bowels of Nvidia's marketing department. As you can see from my Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti review, this is hands down the [block…

How to save Tomb Raider: A proposal for where the series should go next

With Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, Lara has now completed another trilogy, probably by falling through its roof and shooting it in the face. This would be the second set of three games from Crystal Dynamics (with help from other parts of Eidos), following on from the six titles created by Core (if you don't count the Game Boy ones). She's twelve main games old,…

How the Tomb Raider games have worn me down and broken me

I didn't much like the first in the most recent trilogy of Tomb Raider games, named with such originality and aplomb, Tomb Raider. (Square Enix's arrogance in reappropriating the original name of a series has never been a helpful move - see also Thief and Hitman, and I'd be willing to bet a fair wad of cash we'll be seeing "Final Fantasy" in the next…

Podcast: The Gamescom Special 2018

It’s time for Gamescom, the yearly show in Germany. There are lots of games here. Too many for a lone operator. We’re going to have to send a whole unit. That’s where you come in, members of the elite RPS podcast. Four of you are going to Cologne. We’ve heard reports of Cyberpunk 2077, Metro Exodus, Biomutant, Dying Light 2, Ape Out, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot and…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Feature: Good Lara, bad Lara

Have you played… Rise of the Tomb Raider?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. A very good game wearing the skin of not a very good game. Peel that skin away, or at least try to ignore it, and find the golden bones underneath. Alternatively, just play the survival mode DLC and experience Rise of the Tomb Raider's best bits…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider coming in September

The next Lara Croft adventure will be Shadow Of The Tomb Raider and it's coming on September 14th, with no period of console exclusivity this time round. Square Enix have been bunging corks into their leaky reveal barge over the last couple of days, but now the teaser trailer is officially here. It contains all of your expected Lara action: she climbs a vertical cliff-face,…

2017 Steam Award winners include PUBG, Cuphead & Witcher

We've already seen which games sold best on Steam last year, but a perhaps more meaningful insight into movin' and a-shakin' in PC-land is the games that people feel warmest and snuggliest about. To that end, Valve have announced the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards, a fully community-voted affair which names the most-loved games across categories including best post-launch support, most player agency, exceeding…

Feature: The biggest hits of the past 12 months

These are the top 100 Steam games of 2017

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games. But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol' breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months. Below is the full, hundred-strong…

Would you believe it, they’re only making another Tomb Raider

I know! Another sequel to a ludicrously long-running and successful game franchise! What surprises this life holds. Unfortunately, "a new Tomb Raider" is quite literally all publisher Square Enix are saying right now, outside of promising we'll hear more soon. Still, it's nice to have forgone conclusions confirmed, innit?

Rise of the Tomb Raider is the new Humble Monthly early unlock

Rise of the Tomb Raider is currently available for $12 / £10 through Humble Monthly. For the uninitiated, Humble Monthly is the rather on-the-nose name of the monthly subscription service offered up by the folks from Humble Bundle. For £10 / $12 each month, you get instant access to one game at the start of the month along with a stack of other Steam keys…

Steam Charts: Just Gotta Ride It

Well, this really isn't the chart I'd expected to see at this point of the year. We're in peak Silly Season, and yet last week's 10 best-selling games on Steam form a broadly unexpected bunch. Which is exactly what I like to see.

Go Home, Lara, You’re Pointy: Tomb Raider DLC Out Now

A splurdge of DLC for Rise of the Tomb Raider [official site] has just come out, which means you can now pop back to a decrepit Croft Manor, team up for co-op wilderness endurance, or battle the tough ‘Extreme Survivor’ difficulty mode. But most importantly, you can now control famous archaeologist and murderer Lara Croft the way she was meant to be played – as…

Tomb Raider DLC Rising: Co-op, Croft Manor, Zombies

New Rise of the Tomb Raider [official site] DLC will bring two-player co-op support to its survival mode Endurance and a whole load of things for Lara to do around Croft Manor. I like when video game people have homes. Lara will be kicking around her mansion in a new hunk o' story, as well as shooting through it in a nightmare thanks to a…

Tomb Raider Raided: Denuvo DRM Allegedly Cracked

Rise of the Tomb Raider [official site] might finally be cracked six months after its release. A step-by-step video showing a cracked copy of Rise of the Tomb Raider surfaced in Russia last week. It raises the question of whether or not pirates will finally be able to defeat Denuvo's DRM security - protection so tough that some crackers said they were giving up. The crack…
