Checkpoint, please: Wargroove adds handy features

Life has become a little friendlier in Wargroove, as Chucklefish's Advance Wars-y strategy game today launched its keenly-awaited "quality of life patch." Handy features include checkpoints in missions, difficulty setting changes, getting to add AI-controller players to multiplayer matches, and lots of little tweaks and fixes. War may be hell, but that doesn't mean we should accept it being inconvenient.

Wargroove lays out plans for future fixes and features

Wee fixes and handy "quality of life" features are in the pipeline for Wargroove, developers Chucklefish say, with vague plans for a full-on content update and some DLC further down the way. Chucklefish laid out their plans yesterday, also noting that sales of their Advance Wars-y turn-based strategy game between Friday's launch and Sunday had "already covered the cost of development." Our Brendan's Wargroove review…

Steam Charts: Fishy Wishies Edition

It worked! Everyone, it worked! The sacrifices we all made, they were all worth it. Some said we were fools to ritually slaughter those Fortnite players and smear our naked bodies with their blood and entrails, but look! No GTA V in the Steam Charts! And no Monster Hunter World! Sure, there's still flipping Clancy Siege, and obviously nothing short of sacrificing a god could…

Wargroove strategically shuffles into stores today

Wargroove is out now, and clearly an Advance Wars game with the serial numbers filed off and replaced with Chucklefish branding. I am entirely fine with this, and you shouldn't count that as criticism in the slightest. Clearly inspired by Intelligent Systems's accessible-but-tough strategy series, Wargroove has a few ideas of its own, and lots of maps, missions and little soldiers to boss around. It…

Podcast: Wargroove! Resident Evil 2! Subnautica: Below Zero!

 Videogames! That’s the topic of this week’s podcast. Okay, you got us, we couldn’t be arsed to prepare a theme. But we have been playing with a lot of these glittering videowotsits. Graham comes on to discuss the teeny-weeny strategy game Wargroove, which is out tomorrow. And John has been enjoying the company of penguins in Subnautica: Below Zero. Meanwhile, Brendan has been traipsing…

Feature: War! Huh! Yeah! What is it groove for?

Wargroove review

The pikemen have us surrounded, lads. There are enemy trebuchets to the north, knights to the east, and alchemists to the west. I’ll be frank, men, this is not great optics. Let’s reflect as the battledogs charge in from the south. What could we have done to avoid this? No, I don’t know either. The battles of turn-based tactical throwback Wargroove can be tough, and…

Wargroove advances to war on February 1st

Wargroove, the adorable looking Advance Wars-alike from Chucklefish is set to besiege my heart on February 1st. The fantasy turn-based strategy game was high on my 2018 most-wanted list until it slipped to this year, and I'm excited to see if it passes muster. It may be swapping out cartoony modern armies for fantasy kingdoms, but almost everything else is familiar, right down to the…

The RPS hivemind presents: The most anticipated games of 2019

Wow 2019 is a thing, huh? How are we all doing? Relieved? Bowling a hangover and a nagging sense of trepidation? Maybe you work in retail and, surprise! You were supposed to be at work half an hour ago. Time loses all meaning post-New Year break, doesn't it? You're just sort of adrift in a sea of empty Quality Street wrappers. That's okay. We're all…

Video: The most exciting PC games still to come in 2018

Has it really been six months? 2018 is passing in a blur of frozen architects, drug-pushing prophets and accordion duets. Hell, six months ago the RPS Video Department was but a glint in Graham’s eye. You may also recall a gathering of the most exciting games of 2018, a rundown of the year as it looked back in January. With E3 done there’s a clearer…

The most exciting games of 2018

As we lay 2017 to rest, let us remember all of the wonderful games that flickered across our screens and occupied our hearts and minds. But now we must promise never to think of them again because times have changed. This is 2018 and if we've learned one thing from the few hours we've spent in it it's that there are games everywhere. Every firework…

Every PC game announced or trailered at E3 2017

Each year E3 rolls around like a giant evil worm, crushing all that's good and pure. BUT that worm also announces lots of exciting gaming news as it wreaks its carnage upon the Earth. Here we have gathered every announcement, reveal, and exciting new trailer that emerged from the barrage of screamed press conferences over the last few days. And lots of it looks rather…

Wargroove is a build-your-own-battlefield Advance Wars

It seems we missed Wargroove [official site] when it was announced a few months ago. It’s a pixelly strategy game that looks closely inspired by Nintendo’s Advance Wars. It’s set in a mythical medieval world with skeletons and lances0 though, as opposed to a fictional near-future one with artillery shells and spanners. It also has the added appeal of being able to design and share…
