Feature: Making you feel good about exploiting the planet

Have you played… Satisfactory?

Feature: Oh no there are too many games

The RPS hivemind presents: The most anticipated games of 2019

Wow 2019 is a thing, huh? How are we all doing? Relieved? Bowling a hangover and a nagging sense of trepidation? Maybe you work in retail and, surprise! You were supposed to be at work half an hour ago. Time loses all meaning post-New Year break, doesn't it? You're just sort of adrift in a sea of empty Quality Street wrappers. That's okay.
