Microsoft Flight Simulator will let you hide that dork doing barrel rolls if you want

In a new development video for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Asobo Studio explain that they've created a massive shared world for all pilots. That sounds pretty cool, unless you'd rather not be flying next to some yahoo doing barrel rolls in a 747. Fortunately, you'll be able to apply filters to online play so that you only see the folks playing how you are, whether that's…

Asobo Studio manually edited 37,000 airports for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Microsoft Flight Simulator already looks wildly ambitious. Asobo Studio previously explained that you can fly anywhere in the world in their flight simulation. Anywhere? Anywhere. Naturally then they need to have airports everywhere. All the airports, even. So Microsoft Flight Simulator apparently features every airport in the world. A modest 37,000 of those have been manually edited by Asobo, they say in a new developer video.

A Plague Tale: Innocence, Children Of Morta, and Gris coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC

Xbox Game Pass for PC continues to be a pretty excellent deal for those not averse to subscription services. Microsoft have been adding new games to the catalog on the regular and you can still grab your first three months for £1/$1. Microsoft announced three more games coming over the next few weeks, making the deal better as usual.

The Earth freezes over in the latest Microsoft Flight Simulator trailer

Our plane-spotters have tracked a fair bit of the taxiing Microsoft Flight Simulator, though I’m still not sure what we’re looking at isn’t a cleverly constructed ARG for the real-world. Microsoft's impossible-looking return to the Flight Sim series has shown off skies, cities, water, and clouds, but it’s all been vaguely summerish, without a hint of alternative seasons. Don’t fret, winter is coming! Over the…

How A Plague Tale: Innocence’s rat hordes were made

Oh, the rats. The rats and the rats. If you don’t like rats, it’s best you don’t read on, because in A Plague Tale: Innocence there are thousands of them. They’re the stars of its grim medieval show, swarming around you, chittering and lunging and responding to your every movement. And they presented their creators at developer Asobo Studio all kinds of problems to make.…

Microsoft Flight Simulator will use live, real-world data for in-game weather

We Brits like nothing more than to talk about the weather. It is the great equaliser in queues, taxis, and the Brexit-related tea riots currently swarming the nation. So I am thrilled—thrilled—to show present this latest look at Flight Simulator, a game that's going to have so much weather that they need to build the planet to contain it all. If they didn't, you'd need…

A Plague Tale: Innocence now has a demo

That One Game With The Brilliant Rats, aka A Plague Tale: Innocence, now has a demo so we can all admire the rats. And maybe be drawn into the story of kiddywinkles sneaking through France during the Black Death, pursued by the Inquisition and surrounded by ravenous rats. Even our Alice Bee, who is known to feel nothing for the awful digikids we're forced to…

A Plague Tale: Innocence review

I am famously not a fan of children in video games, because I think they mostly dead-eyed haunted dolls that are used as cheap, empty receptacles for player empathy. I don’t even like Clementine in The Walking Dead. Yes, I am a monster, etc. I tell you this so you understand how cute Hugo in A Plague Tale: Innocence must be for me to love…

A Plague Tale: Innocence scurrying out May 14th

The historical horrors of Black Death 'em up A Plague Tale: Innocence will swarm onto PC on May 14th, publishers Focus Home Interactive announced today. That One Game With The Brilliant Rats, as our former Adam (RPS in peace) nicknamed it, is a stealth-o-story about kiddywinkles creeping across medieval France while evading bad humans and worse rats. Oh, the rats! Those ravenous rats. Scurrying, burrowing…

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…

Terrain Up The Rulebook: Fuel Demo

The Fuel demo is out, and you can get the 1gb download here. The demo includes a couple of race events from the main game, but I'm unsure how much of the full 5000km terrain it leaves open for you to explore. Presumably it's a chopped down version (full game is around 4gb), so you won't be able to pursue your own ill-advised virtual roadtrips?…

Racy, Free-Roaming FUEL Action

Okay, I promise I won't post any more FUEL trailers until at least next week. Maybe the week after. But the first of these two game-footage spools really does give an impression of how free and open that game world is, although it's a bit of a shame that whoever is driving keeps bouncing off the scenery. But, you know, this is one of those…

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…
