Katamari Damacy Reroll comes rolling on home today

Katamari Damacy Reroll is out on PC, and all about little things becoming large, rolling their way through obstacles that looked impossible moments prior. Let's give the diminutive Prince Of All Cosmos a hand, because his PC debut feels so very small compared to yesterday's awards silliness and today's Smash Bros overload. Together, with a little push, we can make it big - John reviewed…

Feature: We are made of star-stuff

Katamari Damacy Reroll review

There's a reasonably good chance you don't need me to explain Katamari Damacy. Although, like me you may never have played the original game in the series fourteen years ago. Now 2004's sleeper hit, in which you roll a ball around gathering up stuff, has been refreshed, and for the first time is coming to PC. And it's still absolutely bloody marvellous.

The best Tekken player in the world is a panda

A panda won the Tekken World Tour grand finals this weekend, rampaging through its opponents with all the anti-human rage you might expect of an endangered species. I say “panda”, I mean professional fighterman Hyeon-ho Jeong of South Korea, aka 'Rangchu', who mauled his way through the top 20 Tekken 7 players in the world using the black-eyed animal as a fighty pal. Eventually, ‘Rangchu’…

Armor King and Marduk come to Tekken 7 today (and Julia is on her way)

Marduk, the angry criminal who missed leg day, and Armor King, the only wrestler unsporting enough to wear chainmail to a fight, are coming to Tekken 7 today. A third knuckle cruncher is also coming some time later: native American Julia Chang, who has undergone a redesign and is now an ecologically-concerned streamer. The new biffers were announced by director Katsuhiro Harada at the Tekken…

Dragon Ball FighterZ adds online trophy tournaments and rooms to hoard the prizes

It still blows my mind that Dragon Ball FighterZ was such a hit on PC, and Arc System Works' anime fighter gem continues to expand and grow. Today's update is a significant one for anyone who plays regularly online - and many thousands do - as it's adding full scheduled tournament support. Set a time, set the rules (including some clever gimmick options), invite friends…

11-11: Memories Retold now exploring World War I

Released last night, the "narrative-driven, WWI experience" follows two fellas with very different reasons to be at war, all wrapped up in a third-person…

Halloween 2018 Special: round up of very nice things

Well you’re wrong! All our special Halloween features are about nice things today. We are wall-to-wall niceness. Dare I say suffocatingly cute.…

Nier: Automata’s 2B cutting into Soulcalibur VI as DLC

If the sexy horrors emerging from Soulcalibur VI's character creator hadn't already convinced you that it's the horniest fighting game, the next DLC character might sway you: it's 2B from Nier: Automata. Oh 2B, 2B, poor 2B, the robogoth cursed to fight an endless war for the glory of mankind dressed as a sexy fightmaid. (Don't judge: once you recognise the secret reason for her…

My Hero One’s Justice smashes into stores today

Fans of teen angst, capes, tights and punches that can level city blocks (not a diss - I'm one of you) have reason to be cheerful today - My Hero One's Justice is out now and doesn't look half bad despite its rubbish, nonsensical title. Developed by Byking and based on the wildly popular east-meets-west superhero anime My Hero Academia, it's a tag-team 3D fighting game…

A giant rainbow cube is terrifying Soulcalibur VI players

I imagine there's a Fortnite Battle Royale player out there who can't stand cubes. Sick of being menaced by Kevin, I like to think that one day they tried to take refuge in Soulcalibur VI. And failed. Fighting game aficionado "Abbock" has dodged a restriction in the game's extraordinary character creator, crafting himself a massive rainbow cube that hides his true character model. I'm curious…

Soulcalibur VI review

This is Hooves. He loves to stab and parry and slash and speak in an alien tongue about how good he is at all of those things. Hooves also enjoys setting folks on fire, and paralysing people with frightening runes, which has led some observers (me) to dub him “Horse Geralt” after the hero of The Witcher 3. Unbeknownst to Hooves, he is a clone…

Arcade fighter Soulcalibur 6 is out now, featuring Geralt from the Witcher series

As a shameless button-masher, I'm so happy to see this series return, and with its latest iteration - Soulcalibur 6 - landing on PC for the first time ever. Bandai Namco's other long-running fighting series that isn't Tekken, Soulcalibur is about swords (and other melee weapons), ring outs and regular moves that can do enormous damage. This one debuts with a respectable 19 returning fighters,…

I can’t stop making horny lizard lads in Soulcalibur VI

Sword-obsessed fighting game Soulcalibur VI is out next week. I’m stabbing my way through the story mode, which is mostly a matter of skipping lots of anime-quality dialogue and then having a panicked clash against a man with knives for fingers. But something keeps distracting me. The character creator. It is very good. Here you choose from a bunch of fantasy races (orcs, elves, skellingtons),…

The best Japanese games to play on PC

After spending much of this decade catching up with the rest of the world, the Japanese games industry is truly back, and PC gamers have been reaping the rewards of this renaissance. It’s taken time for Japanese developers and publishers to get on board, especially with consoles and smartphones remaining the dominant gaming platforms in their native country. But as classic console franchises finally make…

Katamari Damacy Reroll tumbling onto PC in December

The world awoke this morning to the pitched screams of Nintendo havers, all shouting random game names. “ANIMAL CROSSING,” cried fans of affordable property. “LUIGI’S MANSION,” yelled lovers of passive aggressive side-eye. “FINAL FANTASY VIII,” shouted Katharine in the RPS hardware department. Ah, yes. There must have been another Nintendo Direct last night, the developer’s ceaseless showcase of upcoming Switch games. Nothing for us in…

Multiplayer ninj’em up Naruto To Boruto: Shinobi Striker is out now

Devotees of the lurid orange ninja wizard (and his rebellious son) may rejoice today, as the messily titled Naruto To Boruto: Shinobi Striker is out now and looks rather good, despite a major shift in genre. While earlier Naruto games focused on retelling the anime's story through tag-team fights, Shinobi Striker is an online team brawler by new studio Soleil. While it has solo and…

The Twin Mirror demo and the mysterious case of hey, what happened to my shirt?

Picture the scene if you yourself were Sam, the protagonist of Dontnod's new IP Twin Mirror. You wake up, hungover, in a cheap hotel room. You’re still in the jeans you wore the night before. Your mouth probably tastes like a tiny glue factory. A hotel staffer is hammering on the door because you’ve missed check out. Suddenly you realise: you’re not wearing a shirt!…

Due out on February 1st, it promises melodrama and dogfights, wrapped up in an alternate earth setting filled with familiar aircraft plus the occasional flying sci-fi battleship.
