Have you played… The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. 'Played' in the title suggests something concluded, but clearly if you did ever play The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (plus its various expansions), you're almost certainly still playing it. Forever and ever.

Dungeon of dicks: The Binding Of Isaac’s most hateful enemies

The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth (plus Afterbirth add-ons) is very much my jam right now. It's been in my life for a while, but December (and now January) was when I fully committed to it. By which I mean 'it took over almost my entire life.' I've seen so much, I've killed so much, and I've been killed by so much. I have a degree…

These are the top 100 Steam games of 2017

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games. But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol' breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months. Below is the full, hundred-strong…

Wot we played on our holidays

Welcome back, gentle human bean, to another year of PC gaming thrills, spills and ambient anxiety about the correct deployment of the term 'roguelite' here on Rock, Paper, Shotgun. As our beleaguered forms struggle to cope with the sudden shift away from Chocolate Oranges for breakfast, now is the time for our time-lost minds to reflect upon how we occupied ourselves over the past ten…

What are we all playing this weekend?

Alice is on holiday and she's taken all the games with her. Luckily some developers released new games after she'd left, so the rest of us still have something to play. Our choices are below, but we want to know from you: what are you playing in this weekend of plenty?

Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ starts weeping January 3rd

The second The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth [official site] expansion, Afterbirth+, now has a release date: January 3rd. It'll give the roguelikelike dungeon crawler a new chapter, a new character, new items, new enemies, and that other typical expansion stuff, but also bring official mod support. Afterbirth+ was expected to launch by the end of this year but hey, I'm sure the holiday season can…

The 10 Best Games Based On Books

Books! They're like films without pictures, or games that are all cutscene. Old people and hipsters really like them, teenagers think they're like totally lame, and quite frankly we should all read more of them. There are countless games inspired by books - most especially Tolkien, Lovecraft and early Dungeons & Dragon fiction - but surprisingly few games based directly on books. Even fewer good…

Afterbirth – Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth Expansion Info

I'm still making steady progress through The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth [official site], with 111 of 178 secrets unlocked. Not shooting for specific goals, I'm slowing down, and suspect I'll still have a fair few to go when the expansion hits. That'll "hopefully" arrive around the middle of this year, Edmund McMillen has said in a nice big blog post with more details on what…

Wot Games Did RPS Play Over Its Holidays?

It's a pleasant fantasy to think that holidays mean long weeks of playing games, but in reality there's trains and planes to be boarded, family to be visited, lives to be unavoidably lived. Gaming during holidays is therefore similar to gaming at any other time, about stealing moments to sneak away to a quiet corner and catch up on backlogs or curl up with comforts.…

The Time Thief: A Game For All Seasons

This year has been unusual for me, gaming-wise, because I haven't had That One Game. You know the one - the game that keeps you up at night while also managing to occupy your coffee breaks. The one that you can play while you're listening to the new Flying Lotus album just as easily as you can play while Corrie's on. It can take up…
