Feature: Surviving 2020 deserves a reward

The best survival games on PC

It's no longer the most urgent gold rush in PC games, but survival games continue to be regularly released, and older games continue to be regularly updated. It's only natural then that we've taken some time out from foraging for edible berries to update our list of the best survival games for 2020.

Rust’s roads are now littered with knackered old cars

Nudist tree-puncher Rust is feeling the need for speed. While Facepunch Studio's big ol' murder sandbox has so far let you locomote by foot, horseback or the miracle of flight, today's update has littered the wilderness with battered old motorcars. They're filthy, broken, knackered old lemons, but hey - there's a reason the devs didn't call the thing "factory-condition", isn't there?

Rust’s new companion app lets you activate traps from your phone

I am glad that Rust is embracing its role as a game for wannabee Bond villains. The social survival game already let you build giant metallic fortresses from which to harangue new and naked players, but now you can take the next logical step and remotely activate traps from your telephone. That's thanks to the new app, which also lets you chat with your team…

Rust will offer refunds as they stop shipping Linux client

Multiplayer survival game Rust will soon stop shipping its Linux client and offer refunds to those who have played using it. They’ve penned a blog post explaining that it had become a “cheater’s sanctuary,” and that a September update addressing performance and security not being supported on the OS was the final straw, despite believing that supporting Linux is still “the right thing to do.”

Feature: Plop Ten

Steam Charts: Bubbling Trousers Edition

It's another dire old week in Chartland, with the last breaths of the Summer Sale ensuring, with the exception of spots #4 and #5, that all the usual suspects dominate. But we won't let that change us! We're better than this! We're going to have fun anyway!

Feature: Running it into the ground

Steam Charts: Got The Runs Edition

Yes, yes, it's me. I know, I know, but calm down. While it's obviously very exciting to have a celebrity as handsome and excellent as me writing you some Steam Charts, I'm still just a regular ordinary guy underneath it all. I leap into my trousers both legs at once, same as anyone else.

Feature: It's all in bad fun

Steam Charts: Summer Sale Silliness sEdition

If there's one thing that's guaranteed to sweep through the Steam Charts like a giant fart, it's a Steam Sale. Blowing out all the fresh, original or interesting new releases, the mid-year discount warehouse (Junction 45 off the M91) ensures it's a top 10 of games you already bought or decided you don't want to buy.So who is buying them? Baddies. You lot are the…

Hello friendly people! Welcome to the always-lovely, always-cheerful soft-play-of-fun-and-hyphens that is Steam Charts!Today we're going to laugh together, learn together, and maybe, just maybe, if we're lucky, laugh and learn a little. Please, pull up a trouser, take a seat (take as many seats as you need - we have too many seats), and prepare to enjoy, laugh, and maybe even learn.

This sneaky solo Rust heist is a treat to watch

The post-apocalyptic murderisland of Rust is one of those virtual lands I'm always interested in hearing good stories from, even if I'm unlikely to visit it myself (because it is a murderisland). The best I've heard in a while is a heist committed by YouTuber "Welyn", who set out on a revenge mission to sneak into a clan's heavily-fortified base and rob it blind all…

Feature: Now feat. even more fish!

Steam Charts: Aquatic Craniate Edition

There are weeks when the Steam Charts surprise us! There are weeks when interesting new and old games reappear, pushing out the dreary regulars! And then mostly there are weeks like this one, where it's so depressingly bland that it starts raining outside the moment you glance at it. Not good rain, just bland drizzle.

Rust adds hot air balloons and some explosive ways to pop them

From zombie survival to weird naked cave-jerk game to hot air balloons and anti-air missiles, the evolution of Rust has been a strange one to behold. Facepunch's previous few updates to the sandbox survival craft n' shooter have focused on new and expanded NPC factions and their territory, but the latest has its head in the clouds. Scattered around Rust's plains are pre-assembled hot air…

Rust’s new Bandit Town update adds more NPCs and wipes the servers

It's a scary day for Darwinist survival sandbox shooter Rust. For the first time in a long while, everyone's starting out fresh. Today's major new update - introducing a whole new NPC-run town - is accompanied by a universal server wipe. Clans are forced to reform, projects to be rebuilt, and reputations to be restored. It's anarchy out there, and I don't think Rust's players…

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…

Rust’s Compound patch makes its apocalypse a bit nicer

Despite Rust sitting in my Steam library for what feels like forever, I've never quite drummed up the courage to dive into its singularly brutal apocalyptic world of angry naked people working their way back out of the stone age in order to shoot each other in the face. This weekend I may finally give it a spin, as its latest update adds a well…

Rust adds boats, improves forests, deploys choppers

Sandbox murderthon Rust has added driveable motorboats in its latest update, elevating it to the highest class of game: one where you and your pals can pootle around a giant world singing songs until hubris causes a crash. The update's also good news for landlubbers who'd prefer to lead a woodland hike, as it improves and expands forests. I'm sure those are the only big…

Feature: A farewell to arms

Rust review

“Here, have some arms”.I’ve been alive for about 2 minutes, and the first player I’ve met in Rust has just chucked a pair of severed human arms at my feet.“I found them on a corpse just over there. I...may have killed him. But then I wasn’t hungry, so you can have them. Here’s some animal fat too.”Rust is a strange game.
