The best management games on PC

Don't worry, though - it's only because there are already so many classics to choose from. If you're looking for something to sink into over the holidays, check out our picks below.

Games like Stardew Valley: the best farming games on PC

There's something innately relaxing about farming games like Stardew Valley. They let you take life at your own pace, where the only mission objective is to make a place your own in whatever way you see fit. It's the reason why so many of us have spent hundreds and hundreds of hours playing Stardew Valley, which is arguably the best farming game you can play…

Slime Rancher: A tour round Pip’s home

It sounded like people enjoyed looking round my Subnautica base a while back so I decided to make a video tour of my Slime Rancher [official site] base as well! It's absolutely full of creatures and resources you won't discover for ages as well as the more basic parts of the game so SPOILERS AHOY. I'd say only watch it if you don't want to…

Podcast: The Electronic Wireless Show talk replayability, Slime Rancher and Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds

The hosts of the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, know neither respite nor shame. This week we have a chat about "replayability" - what games are the most replayable? Why do we always go back to our "comfort games"? Exactly how many hours has Adam spent in Crusader Kings II? Hint: QUITE LOTS. Meanwhile, Pip attempts to cultivate the excrement of wet monsters in…

Poop And Profit: Slime Rancher’s Fantastic Farming

Slime Rancher [official site] is the cutest game about selling shit ever made. Admittedly it's probably the only game about selling shit ever made, but I don't know for certain and googling "Shit­selling games" tends to bring up commercial flops like Bulletstorm rather than games that literally involve the flogging of faecal matter.If you've seen anything of Monomi Park's debut, which slithered onto Early Access…
