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…

A Rust review is incoming…

...but not till early next week. As Early Access ended, there was a server wipe yesterday evening so I'm going to play a bit more now that I can build up my blueprint collection and base knowing that everything isn't going to be snatched away from me. Rust's world of multiplayer survival can be harsh at the best of times, so it's only fair that…

Rust is out of early access – here are its best patch notes

The nasty, brutish and (often) short survival game Rust has finally crept out of its early access cave today and is sauntering around firing shotgun shells of joy into the sky and also into bodies of people it doesn’t know and doesn’t trust. That’s a simplistic reduction of a five-year process which has seen this Prometheus of the survival genre go from being a janky…

Rust leaving early access February 8th, then development will continue

After four years of nude murders, multiplayer survival sandbox Rust will be declared done enough to leave early access on February 8th. Development will still continue, mind, with future plans including improving farming, adding vehicles from cars to hot air balloons, radios, surrendering, and oh so much more. However, the game has settled into form enough over its time in early access that Facepunch Studios…

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…

Rust gets spoOoOoky with Halloween frights

Halloween's timing is a bit weird this year, with the preceding weekend taking the bloodsoaked brunt of the fiendish frenzy, but video games still remember and will still be here for us. Rust is already a game where nude fiends ritually sacrifice each other, making it unsettling at the best of times, but now it's proper spooky too. The early access survival sandbox's latest update…

Rust introduces sitting down and frozen lakes

Rust [official site] now has the ability to let players sit in chairs. I feel like, despite my own lack of Rust experience, sitting in chairs is not a core part of the Rust survival game experience. I was kind of hoping that the game was taking an unexpected detour into the ancient sport of trying out furniture while a sales assistant hovers nearby but…

Gleaming! Rust overhauls recoil and inaccuracy

Sandbox survive 'em up Rust [official site] has launch a sizeable update reworking how gun recoil and inaccuracy work. It should now feel more like a traditional first-person shooter, developers Facepunch Studios say. Thursday's early access update also fancied up parts of the map Hapis Island, making them a lot more interesting, and added a new one-way drop box for players to easily dunk items.…

Steam Charts: From France to San Francisco

Alec is away this week, following the Vengaboys around on tour. Or, if they're not currently touring, just visiting places they've been, taking photos and placing them inside his scrapbook alongside some brief reflections. That means it falls to me to tell you which ten games were the best selling on Steam in the past week, and there are some pleasant games inside.

Rust Adds Female Model, Randomly Assigned To Players

The nude murderisland of Rust [official site] has welcomed women to its bloody shores, adding a female player model in last week's update. Yes, they too are beautiful slapheads. It's not a choice, mind. As Rust did before with penis length and race, each player's in-game sex is decided randomly - and permanently. Some players are not too thrilled with this, but developers Facepunch say…

Rust Concepts Include Eerie Aloof NPC Scientists

I like strange characters who largely ignore players, following their own unknowable agendas until you cause problems. Skyrim's giants who'd rather scare you off but will eventually knock you into the clouds. The Borg in Star Trek: Elite Force who don't even consider you a threat at first. Despairing Hollows in Dark Souls. That sort of thing. I do hope that Rust [official site] will…

Anonymiser: Rust Adds Anti-Stream Sniping Option

Livestreaming has lead to a few interesting changes in how people play games together. Some games let Twitch viewers trigger in-game problems and shocks for the player to deal with, we play Dark Souls by committee, and, of course, some use it for cheating and griefing - whether that's watching an opponent's livestream in an RTS to see their side, trying to jump into matchmaking…

It’s Avive! VR-Focused Garry’s Mod Sequel Confirmed

VR almost certainly needs a killer app if it's to spread beyond monied game-fans. Facebook have probably got something up their sleeves for that there Oculus Rift, but as for the Vive, I do wonder if Garry Newman's talk of a VR-focused follow-up to his monster-selling Garry's Mod [official site] could be the mega-toy it needs.
