A Plague Tale: Innocence does indeed look like that one game with the brilliant rats

If you like seeing swarms of rats burst out of pulsating corpses and devour men alive, boy howdy do I have the video for you. Sixteen minutes of sneaking, puzzling, and murdering-by-rat from A Plague Tale: Innocence are yours to watch in a gameplay video creeping out of Gamescom today. Y'know, that's the stealth puzzler about kids travelling across 14th Century France through war and…

A Plague Tale: Innocence trailer unleashes ravenous rats

"[It] will almost certainly be That One Game With The Brilliant Rats," our Adam declared after seeing a bit of A Plague Tale: Innocence [official site] earlier this year. It's a stealth game set in France in 1349, when the Black Death is in full swing and swarms of rats are feasting on corpses. Two kiddywinkles are our stealth heroes, trying to dodge both the…

A Plague Tale: Innocence has gaming’s best rats

It's a strange thing to be known for, but A Plague Tale: Innocence [official site] will almost certainly be That One Game With The Brilliant Rats. As soon as footage starts to spread around the internet, it's the rats that people will settle on because they are the entire point of the exercise. With all apologies to the two kids who are the actual protagonists,…

Why Fuel Is Still A Showroom Of Videogame Possibilities

Starting today, every Sunday we're going to pull out one of the best moments from Rock, Paper, Shotgun's 141-year history. This week, Jim's road trip around post-apocalyptic racing game Fuel, first published June 22nd 2009 with the title, "Fuel: Around The World In Eight Hours". With The Crew just around the corner, a Mad Max game in-development and open-terrain survival games on the rise, the…

The Red Arrows: FUEL GPS Trailer

Codemasters have released another brief (and actually a little strange) clip for the open-world racer, FUEL, this time showing off the race interface. They've also dated it: May 29th across the world. We're expecting to have some time with FUEL before its release, so we'll hopefully be able to let you know a bit more about what to expect closer to release.

FUEL: The Seventy Vehicles

Open world racing game FUEL has us moderately excited. Not full-blown hype-arousal, but a mild kind of: "Hey look at that". To find out why this is you should probably read our interview with Codemaster's producer chap. If you've already been there and done that, you should click to the video below and raise a sceptical eyebrow at the claim of seventy vehicles being displayed…

Great Gusto: FUEL’s Weather Business

Our recent interview with Codemasters about their new racing game FUEL suggested that changing weather would be more than just a visual extra, it should also affect the racing. Of course the trailer (anterior to click) totally fails to convey that: it just looks pretty. Although I bet driving into that tornado probably isn't going to help you win the race. Unless the finishing line…

Interview: Codies on FUEL

FUEL, the quasi-apocalyptic open world racer due later this year, is a labour of love for French developers Asobo. They've have been working on it for several years, while developing a series of other, lesser games. Helping them realise this vision is the racing game team at Codemasters, who already have DIRT and GRID, under their belts. We talked to racing game chap and Executive…

FUEL: Landmarks, User Content Hints

More Codemasters material from their recent US press day: a second FUEL trailer. This one is significantly less impressive than the last one, although it shows a bit more detail of the racetrack areas within the 5000km2 terrain of the game world. it's really hard to guess the quality of the game at this stage, and I'm somewhat sceptical. Nevertheless, the idea of a post-apocalyptic…

Okay, Yikes: FUEL Trailer

This rather puts Burnout Paradise's sprawling cityscape into perspective. FUEL, Codemasters' new open world racing game, features 5000km of open terrain. This new chunk of footage illustrates that to startling effect. We were already intrigued the massive space Codies were talking about, but this brings it home. Suddenly the idea that it really does have that much space in it seems real. Not only that,…

FUEL: Pre-Apocalyptic Racing

I don't think I've ever been excited about a racing game before. I've enjoyed plenty of 'em, and sometimes very much so, but I've never thought "ooh, I'm really looking forward to driving around a slightly better-looking race track." Until now. FUEL is the next inexplicably capitalised inhabitant of Codemaster's racing stable (with DIRT and GRID. I look forward to WHEEL, GEAR and QUITE FAST…
