Rainbow Six Siege will keep skulls, slots, and neon boob after all

Ubisoft have decided to keep skull imagery, blood splats, gambling machines, and a neon breast in Rainbow Six Siege, three weeks after announcing plans to remove them to sanitise the game for launch in new Asian markets. Not everywhere is so keen on such things, y'know. Many players were unhappy with these cosmetic changes in maps and UI icons, I'm sure you can imagine. Ubisoft…

Rainbow Six Siege introduces long-range shoving with Operation Wind Bastion

Shoving people on their arse from long-distance is the superpower of one of the two new characters coming to Rainbow Six Siege with its next free update, and I cannot imagine a wizard more perfect for me. The other new wizard has the ability to electrify deployed wire, shields, and barricades, which is a nice bit of elemental magic but not as good as shoving.…

Rainbow Six Siege’s Moroccan kasbah looks too nice to shoot to pieces

Ubisoft Montreal have unveiled Rainbow Six Siege's next multiplayer map, first teased earlier this week. Out in the southern Moroccan hills lies a surprisingly scenic old fortress, used as a military training site, but I'm going to feel bad for rampaging through it guns blazing. There are high towers, sheer walls, lots of solid looking cover and far too much stained glass. It's an impressive…

Rainbow Six Siege heads to Morocco in Operation Wind Bastion

Operation Wind Bastion is taking the tactical game of window abuse to the Kingdom Of Morocco, and into a very scenic old fort out in the mountains. This update will also introduce the usual duo of new operators, this time taken from the ranks of the…

Rainbow Six Siege cuts skeletons and gambling in maps across all regions

I know October is over and we're meant to be taking down the decorations, but it feels a little excessive that Rainbow Six Siege is excising all skulls, blood and more from its maps. The bizarre cuts to the tactical team shooter are due to developers Ubisoft Montreal no longer wanting to juggle multiple regional versions of maps as they expand into Asian territories. The…

The 25 best multiplayer games on PC

Multiplayer games are the best type of games, because they're built around the most interesting components known to humans: humans. Men, women, and an awful lot of children. Internet strangers aren't always the friendliest bunch, but they can surprise you in ways that a static system can't. People form the living, beating hearts of the gaming moments I value the most. Join me, then, as…

Rainbow Six Siege mobilises its final patch notes for Operation Grim Sky tomorrow

Hereford Base is getting a major rework, new operators Maverick (Attacker with a pinpoint blowtorch) and…

Rainbow Six Siege teases Operation Grim Sky and its upcoming Operators

Tactical wall-smasher Rainbow Six Siege is going stereotypically British for its next update. Not only is the Hereford Base map getting a makover, complete with "high chance of rain", Operation Grim Sky brings us a London cop Defender to play as. Presumably because our island is so underwhelming, they'be balancing out all the rain and gloom with an American Attacker, fresh from the dusty streets of…

Steam Charts: Life Changing Edition

Welcome to the Award Winning Steam Charts! Yes, you heard that right! I wrote "Award Winning"! It hasn't technically won any awards, but since everyone can agree it should have, it seems like it would almost be lying not to write it. But enough about how bloody brilliant I am, here are the top grossing games on your Steams this week.

Steam Charts: There Are Consequences Edition

Words are ill-equipped to describe how dull this week's Steam Charts truly are. Read on to see how I combat that. But also, thank goodness there's at least the interesting feature that Plunkbat has, for the first time since it shot to the top of the charts on its release, dropped to third place. Its year-long grip on the top spot was beginning to waver…

Rainbow Six Siege Castle: what he can do and how to use him

As far as defensive operators go in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Castle couldn't be simpler to understand conceptually. However there is a huge difference between being simple to understand conceptually and simple to use. This guide will show you the things you should, and shouldn't do with Castle, as well as go through his weapons and gadgets.

Rainbow Six Siege Buck: what he can do and how to use him

As one of the first DLC operatives for the attackers in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Buck changes the game in some rather significant ways, being able to deal with both long and close range threats with a press of a button.

His crossbow can be used in multiple ways, either to directly damage his opponents or confuse them enough for allies to take them down. This guide will go over how to effectively use his crossbow, as well as the weapons and gadgets…
