Feature: Music to your ears

The best game soundtracks you can listen to for free right now

Another month, another big video game publisher puts a great big dollop of video game music online for zero pennies. This time, it's Bandai Namco, who have just uploaded every single Tekken soundtrack onto Spotify because, well, apparently everyone loves Tekken. I've never partaken in a Tekken, but with track names like "Massive Stunner" and "Lonesome City Jazz Party 1st", I'm already 100% convinced the…

SteamWorld Quest gets a ‘New Game Plus’ mode

Card-casting robo-fantasy SteamWorld Quest: The Hand Of Gilgamech was a cheery, story-led take on Slay The Spire’s deck-building battles, but unlike that infinite roguelike city crawl, it never felt like something to replay over and over. Developers Image & Form want to fix that a bit. So they’re giving players a reason to keep card-shuffling: a New Game Plus mode. And a few other bits…

Feature: Our favourites thus far

Our favourite games of 2019 so far

Summer. The heat age. Scorch season. Spring's hangover. It's the mid-point of the year and you know what that means. No, not "mojito time", Geoff, put those away. It's time we told you what the best games of the year are so far. There are quite a lot of them. Just look how many videogames have escaped from their developers in the past six months…

SteamWorld Quest hisses onto PC

Image & Form's ever-changing SteamWorld series continues today with SteamWorld Quest: The Hand Of Gilgamech, this time sending silly steambots on deck-building card battle RPG adventures. It launched on PC this morning following an April debut on Nintendo Switch and, our Katharine said in her SteamWorld Quest review, is another good'un. She said it's gentle and inviting as deck-building battlers go, and has a regular…

SteamWorld Quest: The Hand of Gilgamech review

Image & Form have jumped from one genre to the next during their twenty-odd-year history, but they've done it with such confidence and consistent brilliance that I was fully expecting to fall head over heels with their new card-based RPG, SteamWorld Quest: The Hand of Gilgamech. And yet, there was a time when Quest almost lost me. As I kept playing the same bunch of…

Feature: From pretty fish to suspicious fizzy pop

Our favourite games at EGX Rezzed 2019

The staff of RPS were rambling around Rezzed last week, like a troop of rowdy baboons. We were inspecting the games of our yearly show and rubbing our chins, going “hmmm” with the pensiveness of an art critic on the toilet. I’m saying we were being judgey monkeys. There were a lot of games to play, from comedy physics platformers with wobbly-armed buffoons, to oh…

SteamWorld Quest announced: a card-based RPG that looks very in-Spire-d

Oh look, a new SteamWorld game. What a juicy, nourishing videogame fact to share with all my friends, the readers. SteamWorld Quest: The Hand Of Gilgamech is a card-based follow-up to SteamWorld Heist and the SteamWorld Digs, all very wholesome games that can actually be completed by human beings. This new one is a turn-based fantasy card game that looks a bit like undying god…
