RPS Discusses: Do Expansion Packs Still Matter?

Expansion packs were once a core part of playing PC games, but they can often feel less essential in a world of constant updates and microtransactions. Original game Alec, expansions Adam and Graham, and brief DLC Alice gathered to discuss their favourite game expansions and why they still think the model works.

Have You Played… Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance initially amazed with its scale.

Disc-go 2000

Possibly of use to one in a hundred of our readers, but we're all about supporting persecuted minorities. Robin Clarke writes a little about the attempts of the community to make non-Windows 2000 supported games actually work on Windows 2000. He includes links to getting games as varied as Quake Wars: ("Enemy" - Ed) Territory, Bioshock, Command & Conquer 3 and Supreme Commander to work…
