Podcast: The best post-apocalyptic games

 The world ended this week. We documented the whole thing. But the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, will not go quietly into the abyss of human history. It's not going to be felled by the atomic blast of Fallout 76. It’s going down screaming. Screaming about the best post-apocalyptic games out there, that is.

I played Eco and didn’t want to save the world

This is like one of those jokes that work on Twitter but makes people really concerned if you write it on Facebook: "Anyone else feel like the planet is doomed and we should stop trying?" Like, your aunt would post a comment underneath asking if you were okay. The first time I played Eco, I chose a world that had been running for a few…

Outlast 2’s moon and the end of time

What's your favourite moon in a game? The lipless satellite of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, perhaps? Overwatch's rather cosy lunar map? Somebody asked me this a few weeks ago -- genuinely, we'd been talking about First Man -- and to my surprise I found myself thinking of Outlast 2. There is little about Red Barrels' schlocky, prurient first-person horror outing that deserves real…

The Yawhg: an end of the world diary with leeches

The Yawhg is a game about what happens if the end of the world is coming but you don’t know that, and thus don’t care, and carry on doing whatever it was you were going to do anyway. Would it help? Would it matter? Would you survive? It's a PC game but plays like a board game, almost. There are four characters who take it…

Far Cry 5 should be a (sort of) Fallout prequel

Clubbing on a Tuesday night is not a good idea. The only places open on a Tuesday are named after sea creatures and bandits; “The Dolphin” or “Copper Face Jack’s”, “Sneaky Pete’s” or “Mermaid Bar”. Inevitably, you will tryst with a stranger. Primal urges will be satisfied. In the following days your nethers will begin to itch in a sinister way, as you both realise…

Happy Apocalypse Day, everyone

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there’s something funny going on this morning. There are hundreds of dead frogs on the pavement, a ship made of fingernails just sailed into harbour, and there's already been two posts about zombie games. Now listen, I’m no expert (all of those mysteriously disappeared last night) but it feels like something big is happening. Something big and not…

Overkill’s The Walking Dead review

“Good luck boyos.” The four of us are standing in a descending elevator, each grasping a holdall of supplies. We’re preparing to make one final, treacherous push through a warehouse of shambling flesh nibblers to our getaway truck. The sudden excitement in the chat log clues me in to the upcoming danger. To be honest, I think most of it is for my benefit. Before…
