“I’ve loved almost every minute of it,” our Adam said about Little Nightmares [official site] last week. Only you had no way to play it then, as it wasn’t out, so all you could do was stare at it through the shop window, face pressed up against the glass.

Post-asteroid survival RPG Impact Winter delayed

Post-asteroid survival RPG Impact Winter [official site] was due to launch next week, but it won’t. Publishers Bandai Namco have announced a delay of six weeks to give developers Mojo Bones more time to make it all shiny and awful. Which sounds peachy because Impact Winter sounds interesting.

WH40K: Eternal Crusade launches free version

Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade [official site] did not arrive as the PlanetSide-y peristent open-world war MMO once envisioned but, if you are still curious about the game it actually is, you might fancy the free version that’s now live. I mean, if you’re reading RPS, statistically you do already have an increased chance of wanting to roll into battle with da boyz. And while the original plan was to only let free players be cannon fodder for the Ork waaagh! machine, this here version offers all factions and most classes. Read the rest of this entry »
