Sable’s lonely jetbikes have been delayed into 2021

There are few games I'm excited for more than Shedwork's gorgeous sand-speeder Sable, which is why it stings to report that it's once again been pushed back a year.

As consolation, here are 30 more seconds of the upcoming comic-book adventure to gawk at longingly, courtesy of a…

Video: The shark RPG and other hidden gems of E3 2018

This means sifting through mountains of press releases and trailers to find all the curious games that lurked outside the spotlight glare of the larger publishers.

Podcast: The best and worst of E3 2018

The festival of dumb explosions known as E3 is over, but that won’t stop us. The RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, goes deep into the show, picking out our favourite games, the oddest moments, and best rats (spoiler: it was the one crushed by a shelf in the Resident Evil 2 trailer).
