Spyro Reignited Trilogy brings the classic console mascot to PC today

PC never really had a mascot, did it? I suppose you could say the Doom guy, but he's running on everything from toasters to oscilloscopes. Hardly loyal. That Crysis lad? Nah, even Xbox had a more recognisable sci-fi army guy. We've never had anything like Mario or Sonic on the home computer but worry not. It's 2019. Exclusivity is theft. We're stealing our mascots, starting…

WoW Classic queues are long enough that players are even queuing in-game for quests

The launch of World Of Warcraft Classic this week was faithful enough to the vintage WoW experience that players have again found themselves waiting in digiqueues to join certain servers, some waiting for hours. Some players have even started queueing in-game for their chance to kill the monsters everyone now needs to whack for low-level quests. So how come Blizzard haven't brought more servers online…

Have You Played… Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2?

We’ve already done Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 for this regular feature. So let’s talk about its predecessor, the first Hawk 'em up to hit the PC. It was all about skatey combos. Pulling 180 bumflips and 360 trumpbokes, while admiring level gimmicks like a helicopter taking off, or power lines crashing down, or cars rumbling through the streets beeping their horns at you, you…

Games like Fortnite – the best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale, I think it's fair to say, is the standout title of the decade-old battle royale game genre. Not since Minecraft have we seen a game enter the mainstream in this way - but that doesn't mean Fortnite is the only battle royale out there that's worth playing. We'll go over just a few of the very best battle royale games like Fortnite…

Celtic FC have signed a Call Of Duty esports team

I’m going to open this story with the strangest disclaimer you’ll ever read on RPS: as a young man who grew up in the Glasgowy part of the country, I was a supporter of Glasgow Rangers. Generally, this wouldn’t be a problem, but when you’re dealing with the Old Firm, well, they like to know. In my own defence, I started back when Davie Cooper…

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare to hold a cross-platform open beta

It's nearly time for more war. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - a much more modern shootbang than 2007's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - is opening up a cross-platform beta from the 21st to the 23rd of September. Hurray, we get to shoot at console rubes. Boo, platform factionalism is weird and bad and it's hard to see that being a fair fight…

Overwatch’s new hero is fun, but the reason he’s barefoot is bollocks

Sigma, Overwatch's new floaty man, is now live on the test servers. He's a tank who uses gravity magic to chuck quantum pebbles at people, an energy vortex to transform incoming fire into shield juice, and a highly mobile barrier to protect himself and his team. He's also a thematically boring mad scientist, but let's not hold that against him. His ultimate is great fun.

Overwatch’s next hero is Sigma, a gravity-bending villain with a PhD

Overwatch picks up another academic super-villain with new lad, Sigma. An "eccentric astrophysicist" with a fondness for harnesses and eyebrows that could skin a bear, Sigma's origin story was revealed last night. This followed some tantalising Tweets from Overwatch boss Jeff Kaplan (the tease) wherein an entire update video was sucked into a piano rehearsal.

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

The Japanese myths and woodblock art behind Sekiro’s creatures

Fantastic creatures are as important to Sekiro as its samurai and shinobi. For every deftly fought duel against a venerable warrior there’s a slug-fest with a headless ape that hurls toxic poo. It’s a fine balance between the real and the romantic. Whereas Dark Souls had everything to do with “lore”, Sekiro more delicately pulls from folklore. Lordran is almost purely imaginative, but Sekiro’s Ashina…

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare returns to the present on October 25th

Coming to us from Activision's ever-cycling stable of studios comes another Call Of Duty this October. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare is a reimagining of this particular sub-series, rather than another remake or sequel, and not to be confused with Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, or Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. Original developers Infinity Ward are returning and threatening an "edgy, culturally relevant…

Spyro Reignited Trilogy is PC-bound says Taiwanese Rating Committee

The lovely Spyro Reignited Trilogy - a remake bundle of Insomniac's three Spyro The Dragon games - is headed to PC, if the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee aren't fibbing to us. Spotted by the ever-eastward-looking Gematsu, the listing even includes preliminary box art, featuring the logo for Iron Galaxy, who previously brought the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy to PC. It would seem that our…

Apparently, publishers Activision have changed the studios working on the game, moving it from Raven and Sledgehammer to Black Ops developers Treyarch, who will be working to release Black Ops 5 a year earlier than expected.

Sekiro 1.04 patch notes – what was introduced in the latest update

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice's  significant update didn't quite go to plan, but the latest hot-fix has amended this error. It is the only change to come in the latest update, but the previous version had some major adjustments to balance - mostly in your favour, and some bug fixes. As a result, some of your abilities are far more powerful as a result of the…

FaZe defeated at Call Of Duty World League by apparent glitch

Fan favourite Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 esports team FaZe Clan’s World League run was halted last night as they took a 2-3 loss to Luminosity Gaming. But there's rumblings that they wuz robbed, after both teams completed their win-conditions near simultaneously. Though FaZe appeared to capture their control point a half-second before being eliminated by Luminosity, the game ruled in favour of the…

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 PvP heads up the new Humble Monthly

From the few rounds I spent with it pre-release, Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4's battle royale mode - Blackout - was a lot of fun, speaking as someone not particularly into Battle Royales. Today, you can snag Treyarch's big-budget manshoot for $12 (roughly £9.12), along with the game's other PvP modes in the cut-down Battle Edition, heading up this month's Humble Monthly. While it…
