Ace Combat 7 now supports a few more flight sticks

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown features a veteran fighter pilot whose full name is Mihaly Dumitru Margareta Corneliu Leopold Blanca Karol Aeon Ignatius Raphael Maria Niketas A. Shilage. That's fabulous. It’s also got plenty of smashing dogfight action. But you know what it doesn’t have? Support for most flight sticks. That’s disappointing. However, there are now at least a few more twisty toys functional with…

God Eater 3’s hunt for monsters has begun

'Monster hunter' might once have sounded an impressive job title, one sure to raise gasps and coos when mingling at a house party, but it's got nothing on 'god eater'. Sure, the jobs are largely the same, both involving hacking 'n' slashing big monsters with big weapons, but 'god eater' has much more... drama. You can see people's faces fall when they ask the god…

Ace Combat 7 modders fix pop-in and add ultrawide monitor support

Ace Combat 7, the unflappable JRPG disguised as a jet fighter game, had some dissatisfied pilots when it came out on PC last week. The trigger-happy fly ‘em up released without support for most joysticks or HOTAS controllers, which irritated folks. And other technical foibles also inevitably annoyed people. Well, there's still no joy for the stick users. But there are some other small fixes,…

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown review

I expected to hear many sentences in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, the latest in the long-running series of jet fighter games. Radio call-outs that any good fighter pilot might recognise. “Bogey on your six” - yep. “Missiles away” - sure. “Hostile down” - uh huh. All the familiar phrases of aeronautic warfare, hissing through the high-altitude static, predictable and safe. “We need to make…

Tales Of Vesperia: Definitive Edition hits PC today

Tales Of Vesperia: Definitive Edition - that one Tales game with the pipe-smoking wolf - makes its PC debut today after a decade of lurking around on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Bandai Namco continue to bring their JRPG back catalogue to PC (and current consoles), and the latest to make the hop is the perfectly decent Vesperia. It's been given a gentle graphical touch-up and…

Six more characters headed to Tekken 7 including The Walking Dead’s Negan

As anyone who stayed up last night to watch the Evo 2018 finals can tell you, fighting games are wild right now. Massive upsets, big comebacks and surprise announcements abound, and few as surprising as Tekken 7's second season pass. Announced during the game's finals last night, there's another six characters headed to Bandai Namco's fighter, three of which have been confirmed. Returning from earlier…

Video: The most exciting PC games still to come in 2018

Has it really been six months? 2018 is passing in a blur of frozen architects, drug-pushing prophets and accordion duets. Hell, six months ago the RPS Video Department was but a glint in Graham’s eye. You may also recall a gathering of the most exciting games of 2018, a rundown of the year as it looked back in January. With E3 done there’s a clearer…

Code Vein opens up in September

Bandai Namco today announced they plan to launch their anime-ish, Souls-tinged action-RPG Code Vein on September 28th. What makes Code Vein a Soulsbut? Well, it's got swords for starters. Can't get more Dark Souls than swords. It got ruins, classic Dark Souls element right there. Oh! You can use the swords to hit monsters--did I mention monsters?--which is maybe the most Dark Souls thing of…

Feature: Great characters, decent combat, terrible beginning

Tales of Berseria review

I’m sitting with some friendly seaside townsfolk debating the merits of placing chocolate jelly in every toilet in the Holy Midgand Empire. The Great Choconito Gambit, one of them calls it to much amusement, insisting he was going to get rich from the scheme. We all laughed. Cut forward half an hour and I’m deep in an ancient temple watching a starving daemon child, half-boy,…

Tekken 7 brings bearbiffing to PC in June

The bear-knuckle biffing of Tekken 7 [official site] will arrive on June 2nd, Bandai Namco announced today. After 22 years (22!), the fighting game series will finally swing by PC. One might say it has 'Tekken' its time, if one were a punfaced git. "But Alice," you say, and I hear you saying it so don't say you don't because you do, "how will I…

Biff! Bam! Tekken 7 Reveals Bob And Master Raven

I'm still a little surprised Tekken 7 [official site] is coming to PC after 23 Tekkenless years. Bandai Namco announced their fighting game's PC port during E3, and showed a little more of it during last weekend's Evo fightorama. This is exciting to me because, as someone who's not played Tekken since the first PlayStation, I am delighted to discover its lineup includes characters I'd…

Never-Ending Story: Tales Of Zestiria Released

Bandai Namco have become pretty good about PC releases lately. The Japanese publisher's ports are still usually a bit wonky, but they're bringing more and more games our way. And coo, look at this: the PC release of RPG Tales of Zestiria [official site] is on the same day as its console versions. Today. It's out today. Now. It's out now. And yes, it is…

Tales of Zestiria Is Coming To PC

In case you weren't aware already, Malevolence is rather malevolent. So malevolent, in fact, that it's taken to spreading across the lands contained within upcoming JRPG Tales of Zestiria [official site]. Come October 20th, players will have the opportunity to stop this nefariousness. Such a miraculous feat, of course, will involve stepping into a shoes of a "pure-hearted adventure" named Sorey who, in turn, is…
