Premature Evaluation: Veil of Crows

Every week we launch Brendan from a catapult into the early access fortress. This time, the haphazard RPG adventuring of Veil of Crows [official site] I’ve just murdered four villagers. I was grumpy and I wanted their village, so I went in with eleven peasants and killed them and took their lumberyard. To be fair, they murdered four of us right back. Sadly, all the…

Modness: High School Of The Dead Mount & Blade Mod

The mod news ticker is all tick-tick-tick-tack-tack-tack-i-will-kill-you-in-your-sleep. I usually don't pay it that much attention, because it's not plugged in and doesn't actually exist, but now it's clacking away and demanding that we should pay more attention to Mount & Blade's mod scene. While I don't imagine the High School Of The Dead mod it prints out is in anyway representative of the scene's usual…

It’s Finally Real! – Mount & Blade II

Good news! Better news! BEST NEWS. TaleWorlds is finally pregnant with another Mount-&-Blade-shaped baby, and your hopes and dreams are the father. This is no With Fire and Sword-style spin-off, either. Or at least, that's what the number two (and in Roman numerals, no less - making it the two-est two of them all) suggests. Unfortunately, I say "suggests" because there's really not much else…

Parley Of The Land: Caribbean! Interview

Caribbean! is Mount and Blade with pirates, or at least that's what I'd be telling everyone if I was making it. To learn more about what the game will actually include, how naval combat will be implemented and what kind of rum cocktails should be consumed while playing, I buried a list of questions in a treasure chest and gave a map marked with the…

Excitable Archipelagos: Caribbean!

Games about pirates sometimes feel the need to exclaim their titles, as if rushing into a room and excitedly waving their arms, jumping up and down, screaming in your face. 'Pirates', they yell, spittle flecking your bewildered visage, 'piiiiirates'! Or, in this case, they're bellowing 'Caribbean', which makes it really hard for me to work out which vowel to elongate. I guess it would be…

Mods And Ends: Pick ‘N’ Mix

This week, a few mods that I've been monitoring but haven't had a chance to have a proper go at yet. In some cases, that's because they haven't been released yet, in others it's because the hours in every day are sadly limited, and as well as playing games and writing about them, I very occasionally sleep. I even venture outside from time to time,…

Pitched Battle: Mount & Blade Glasgow

I'm not sure how we managed to miss this. I'm also not entirely sure that we mightn't have been better off continuing to miss this. Gangs of Glasgow is what happens if medieval warfare sim Mount & Blade was transposed to modern Glasgow, Scotland - or at least an exaggerated version of it where the extreme football hooliganism, rioting and assorted other urban violence is…

Mount & Blade Gets Fires & Swords & Guns

Hrm, we somehow missed Mount and Blade: With Fire and Sword getting announced yesterday. It's a new Mount and Blade game! Yes it is. This time it's set in a "new century of warfare that brings pistols, muskets, grenades, and other advanced weaponry to the battlefield." There will also be weapon and armour customization, new economic systems, new quest types, and "ferocious" new multiplayer elements.…

My! My!: Waterloo In Mount & Blade

I woke up to Fredrik Wester's twitter about the Waterloo event for Mount & Blade. Which is actually based around a load of people playing Mount & Blade: Warband with the Mount & Musket mod, which sounds like the sort of thing we should encourage. Also, linking to the last post, it strikes me that the most RPS mod in the world would be someone…

Band Of Gold: Mount & Blade: Warband Trial

We mentioned it was released earlier this week, but Mount & Blade: Warband now has a trial version (Or here). It's basically the full game, which you can advance your mounted, bladed one up to level 7. After that, you'll need to pay to unlock the full version. Honestly, if you've never played Mount & Blade, this is an ideal chance to start with its…

Mounting Up: Mount & Blade: Warband Out

Just a quick post about this, I think. Previous MUCH CELEBRATED RPS GAME Mount & Blade's expandalone was released today. Mount & Blade: Warband's primary attraction is its focusing on multiplayer, allowing 64 players to bash the flax of out of one another, but there's much more which is worth of comment. Graphical upgrade is promising, but additions to let you rule a faction and…

Mount & Blade: Warband Beta Sign Up

Open-world warrior favourite Mount & Blade is getting an expansion: Warband. This major overhaul is swollen with a gamut of new features, including additional graphical cleverness, better horses, and a 32-player multiplayer mode. Other extras include improved sieges, and a bunch of changes to combat. You can sign up and help with the beta testing here. If you haven't played Mount & Blade yet then…

Mount & Blade: Warband: Multiplayer – Multiplayier!

Emerging from a cloud of dust of E3 is the sound of horse-feet. Hooves. That's the word, hooves. Sorry - it's early. As you'll hopefully be aware, RPS-fave Mount & Blade is getting an expansion. In terms of features they revealed at E3, we're talking about fancier graphics with redone models and - er - graphic effects I can't be bothered listing and now 64…

GamersGate: Redesigned, Crazy Sales

This is the kind of thing we'd normally leave for LewieP to herd into his weekly Bargain Bucket post, but if we wait to mention it till Sunday, most of the great offers will be gone. So, call this the RPS Bargain Jar or something. Quite a few of you have griped about digital store GamersGate's general design over the past few months, and it…

Mount & Beard: Prettier Horses Than Ever

This year's GDC wasn't all unhelpfully cryptic teaser trailers - it was also a chance for enthusiastic developers of lesser-known fare to demo their wares first hand. F'rinstance, this awkward but illuminating talk from one of the Turkish chaps behind the splendid, inventive, horse-centric RPG Mount & Blade, showing off exactly what to expect from the forthcoming expansion, Warband. Significantly enhanced graphics and siege-orientated multiplayer,…

The Horse’s Mouth: Mount & Blade Interview

It's been a bubbling indie favourite over the last few years in its Beta state. Mount & Blade is arguably the greatest horse-based combat game ever, a medieval open-world game with true freedom and genuinely pretty nifty. Having finally reaching V1.0 and its commercial debut, we thought it time to talk to TaleWorld's lead developer, Armagan Yavuz, about the long journey from inspiration to release

Riders Ready: Mount & Blade Retail

I've been following this for longer than the site's existed, but Mount & Blade is finally available in retail. You can buy in the states shops now, and in Europe tomorrow. Alternatively, you can buy it directly at Gamers Gate for thirty euros. I'll be writing more - and hopefully reviewing it for someone - later, but if you need the game explained further, I…

Mount & Blade: The Last Furlong

News reaches us via Blues that it's the last chance to get involved with the Beta period of long-favoured Indie-sensation Mount & Blade. You have to go to Gamespot and register to get it too. Now, not sure to make of it - because V0.96 is actually the last version which was released to the public, so it's hardly new. It may just be American…
