The most satisfying physics in PC games

An obscenely rich teenager throws his VR controller across the room in a fit of blind panic while playing Half-Life: Alyx. It leaves the window of his bedroom at 5m/s. It falls 10m vertically and hits his neighbour’s greenhouse, smashing the glass. How many metres did the controller travel horizontally before coming to a stop in the tomatoes? Use a kinematic formula to determine your…

Session’s new co-op film mode lets you create radical home movies

Like Skate before it, Session wants to look like a proper old-school skater tape. Wide-angle handheld films, packed with stoner teens busting shins on concrete stairs for fifteen minutes 'til one finally nails a gravity-defying line. This week's update for the early-access skate sim brings that lineage full-circle, letting you drag along a friend to film your sickest tricks - or, more likely, your most…

17 reasons to be thankful in games

Gather round, descendants of unwelcome occupiers. It is time to celebrate turkeys again. Now, I don’t have any comically large birds to slaughter, but I do recognise the emotional benefit of reflection, which is what this questionable holiday is all about. Being thankful. There are many small things we videosgamers take for granted, the stuff you don’t even think about. But tiny “quality of life”…

Steam Remote Play now has default finger layouts for its most played games

Valve's Steam Remote Play app is one of those little cul-de-sacs that Steam has that is generally very useful, but if you didn't know about it you probably wouldn't have bothered to seek it out. It lets you stream your games from your PC to weaker hardware, like a tablet or a phone, almost certainly while on the toilet. On a phone, something like this…

Session’s ragdolls and replays are a strong skateboarding combo

Skater bois and skater goils, rejoice. There is a new skateboarding game rolling around. Session is an early access ollie 'em up with a familiar twin-stick setup and a big concrete playground to cruise around in. Steve did not enjoy it in his early access review. But for me, "the QWOP of skateboarding games" sounds perfect. And as the only person in the RPS treehouse…

Premature Evaluation: Session

Skateboarding was born out of the surfer movement of California in the early 1950s, when a bunch of surfers were dismayed that their surfboards ground to a halt whenever they tried to surf along park benches or ollie over a man lying down in the street with an egg in his mouth. By adding wheels to their boards, and making the boards really tiny, and…

Session could well be the best thing since sliced Skate

Skateboarding games just haven't been in vogue these past few years. Ask around, and you'll find near unanimous agreement that the genre peaked with Skate 3 back on the Xbox 360 & PS3, and has struggled to find its footing ever since. Creā-ture Studios' Session, shown during Microsoft's big E3 presentation, looks like a return to form. Unlike the EA-backed Skate series though, Session comes…

Every PC game at Microsoft’s E3 2018 conference

Microsoft had a lot of games to announce at E3 2018, but it's a little murkier this year to find out what was relevant for PC users. Some games were coming to both, others only to their Xbox One consoles. You could of course watch the entire conference right here, but for some there just isn't enough time to wade through the entire show.Not to…
