Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The 50 best FPS on PC

The best shooters endure. While the state of the art moves on in other genres and leaves old designs in the dust, it's as fun to fire a well-made shotgun from an early 90s FPS as from one released today. For that reason, this list runs the gamut from genre classics to those released in the last year. There's bound to be something for you…

AvP Retro: A Stand-Up Fight Or Another Bughunt

Every Sunday, we reach deep into Rock, Paper, Shotgun's 141-year history to pull out one of the best moments from the archive. This week, Alec's 2007 celebration of the real meaning of Aliens, in (the original) Aliens versus Predator. Like every good geek, I have a favourite gaming moment. It's in Aliens Versus Predator, a vintage but oft-forgotten first-person shooter that gets mentioned by my…

Game On, Man: Aliens Versus Predator Free On GOG

Years of pining for a decent Alien game have been ended by Alien: Isolation, a right little stonker, which probably means it's time to start hoping for another good Aliens game. That little extra s makes a huge difference, calling for space marines with big guns yelling "Let's rock!" then melting in sprays of acid blood. If you fancy a fun interspecies rumble on PC,…

Game On: Aliens Vs Marine Is AVP In CryEngine 3

Colonial Marines isn't due until February and that's a long wait for the next attempt to capture the horror of man versus the ultimate murderer. The best parts of Rebellion's first (and the best) AvP game are the marine levels, at least in single player. Horror games often take away weapons or severely limit ammunition in order to increase tension, but even if you're armed…

Beyond Forever: Colonial Marines Returns

What? What! WHAT. Given the annoucement that the Creative Assembly is working on an Alien game for SEGA and that Gearbox seemed so busy with Duke Nukem Forever and doubtless something Borderlandsy, we'd begun to presume that Randy Pitchford's lot had quietly shelved Aliens: Colonial Marines. IT IS NOT SO. The little-seen team/co-op-based shooter has come out of the God-damned walls at last, promising a…

Alien: Not Just ‘A Licensed Game’

Perhaps a little off RPS' beaten track, but thought I'd link you to my interview with SEGA and Creative Assembly top brass for GamesIndustry.biz. For you, sir/madam/entity, its main point of interest is a few more implications as to what to expect from the newly-announced Alien game: "What we're doing with that property takes us a little bit into a more interesting place, so we're…

Creative Assembly Birthing Alien: The Game

Surprising news from the wilds of Horsham, West Sussex, England. The chaps at the Creative Assembly - best known for the splendid Total War games and some other stuff they'd probably rather forget - have just had their next game announced by, er, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, Ed Vaizey. In a bit of a major switch-around for these strategy gurus, they're taking…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 4/5

Young people. Good grief. Your ignorance is as plain as those spots on your greasy face. Don't you know anything? Can't you be bothered to learn anything? Did you even read the words of esteemed colleagues Rossignol, Walker and Smith detailing the first three parts of this Olympian list of The Most Important PC Games Of All Time? I am quite sure that I, Deacon…

Aliens vs Predator review

Continuing the RPS trend of being up-to-the-minute with its verdicts, here's my brain-meanderings about the recent AvP sequel/remake. It's late because, frankly, the PC port wasn't in rude health. Like many other owners of the game, I suffered a bug which caused it to freeze for a few seconds every couple of minutes. A patch hit last week which, though it didn't fix the problem,…

Delayed Hat-Tipping: AvP Classic 2000

This enjoyed a more timely mention in Saturday's bargain bucket, but as an aged fanboy of Rebellion's finest hour, it would be frankly remiss of me not to grant last week's surprise release of Aliens vs Predator Classic 2000 a post of its own. The name is absolutely ridiculous, and could only possibly stem from someone important losing their mind in a board meeting -…

The Year Ahead, Part One

Below is the first part of our intricate guide for PC gaming in 2010. There's a horde of muscular-looking titles on the horizon, many of them likely to stop you and demand your money, like ludological bandits. Meanwhile, others that we expected to land, such The Old Republic, have already fled to 2011. Read on as the clouds in our crystal ball roll back...

Aliens vs Prequel

Bold attempt to contextualise shooting dudes in the face ahoy! Rebellion's AvP remake seems determined to make the world take Aliens seriously again - though alas it's a doubly hard task after the UK developer making a woeful mess of things yet again with the recent Rogue Warrior. I got the chance to try out AvP's multiplayer a couple of months back, and left the…

Aliens VS February

Chilly, Wintertime face-munching and spinal severing awaits us on the the 19th of February 2010, according to trade mag MCV. Which, while pleasingly soon, does mean we've got one more game to add to the now frighteningly busy Feb/March period. February: it's the new Christmas! Oh, and there'll be three different editions of AvP to choose from - sane people will want Standard, people who…

They’ll Regret That: AvP Multiplayer Frothing

Man, this was a lucky escape. I was at a preview event for the upcoming Aliens vs Predator remake/sequel's multiplayer mode a few weeks back, at which Men With Cameras were on the prowl for talking heads - specifically, a few journalists to give this game they'd seen (frankly, not all that much of) a big thumbs-up. Hmm. A fortunate confluence of having to run…
