Monster Hunter: World Ancient Leshen – how to fight it, what is its weakness

Monster Hunter: World has a couple of crossover events, but the most ambitious puts us in the shoes of Geralt of Rivia as he hunts down the monster that transported him and a Nekker to the forest. This turns out to be the Leshen who has taken up residence in the Ancient Forest and disturbed the natural order. You'll therefore need to put it down.…

Monster Hunter: World’s Iceborne expansion coming to PC this winter

Encouraging LARPing, Capcom have announced that Monster Hunter: World's icy Iceborne expansion won't arrive on PC until we're already wrapped up in scarves and mittens, coming our way this winter after a console debut in September. Yes, it is unfortunate that our version is still lagging behind, but isn't it fitting to be exploring an icy island while huddling around your PC for warmth? That's…

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne – PC release date, Velkhana, Tigrex’s Roar

With the brand new Witcher update finally hitting PC this week, there was more news on exactly what to expect from Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Hunters will be crossing the sea to the new region known as Hoarfrost Reach, where despite the cold forest being a seemingly inhabitable tundra on the surface, it's teeming with life. We'll go over all of what has been revealed…

Monster Hunter: World’s Witcher crossover is finally on PC

Ol' Geralt has gone tumbling through another magical portal, this time travelling from the world of The Witcher 3 to Monster Hunter: World. The crossover event lets us play as Geralt to track and murder a Witcher monster, the leshen treeman, with his usual Witching ways. Do so and you can get his armour and sword, plus a gruesome outfit for your Palico catfriend. A…

Steam discounts all things Japanese for Golden Week

It's the first day of Golden Week in Japan, and while that may not mean much to those in English-speaking territories, it's one of the nation's biggest holidays. As Valve never miss an excuse for a sale, that means that there's some great deals on games from Japanese developers and publishers. If visual novels, fighting games or JRPGs are your thing, there's some good stuff…

The RPS Verdict: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

Video Matthew: Court is now in session. I think we’re legally obliged to cram in naff legal references when writing about the Ace Attorney series. There is a very good chance this RPS chat-o-verdict will end with some horrible ‘any objections?’ type thing. We shall see. I have gathered us - by which I mean, you, Katharine - to discuss Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy,…

Geralt and Ciri finally visit Monster Hunter: World on May 9th

After months of lazing around on consoles, Geralt Of Rivia is finally stumbling through the portal to Monster Hunter: World on PC. Capcom have picked May 9th for the debut of this impressively well fleshed-out crossover. It features a fully voiced, branching story mission where you get to play as everyone's favourite grumpy monster-slayer from The Witcher series, a new monster (plus one variant) from…

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is in session on PC today

Capcom's Phoenix Wright series - or at least the first three games - have finally arrived on PC today, remastered and bundled together as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy. Two parts visual novel, one part point-and-click adventure and one part pun dispenser, they're minor classics and it's great to see them find a new home. Playing as pointy-haired anime attorney Phoenix Wright, players must scour…

Overthinking Games: Devil May Cry 5 and its tangle of heavy metal influences

Devil May Cry 5 is, like the entire Devil May Cry series, cool. But it’s a particular kind of cool – loud, dark and fascinated with the occult and forbidden. It’s a mish mash of all the things you thought were edgy when you were a teen: explosions, pizza, guitars, leather, hair, more guitars, a big sword. So when we’re looking for an artistic genre,…

Valve respond confusingly to European Commission region-locking complaint

Earlier today, the European Commission released a statement claiming Valve and five other publishers may have worked together to breach EU international competition rules. The companies are accused of blocking the activation of Steam keys purchased from other nations, even if the purchase and activation locations are both EU member states. The companies named include Bandai Namco, Capcom, Focus Home, Koch Media (including Deep Silver) and…

Monster Hunter: World carts home a free high-res texture pack today

Dragon-botherers with a few gigabytes of space and VRAM spare get to see Monster Hunter: World's land of angry lizard-hurting in sharper focus today. Capcom have rolled out an update for the game, along with a free, optional high-res texture pack that more than doubles the game's installation size. It's a hefty thirty gigabyte download and will happily wolf down six gigabytes of VRAM (though…

Devil May Cry 5’s Bloody Palace is open for (bloody) business

If fighting through hordes of endless demons committed to sucking life from your soul sounds fun, I bet you're loving this Monday morning of corporate April fool's japes. Refuge can be found in Devil May Cry 5's Bloody Palace, where you also fight through hordes of endless demons, but also have motorcycle swords or robo-arms that fire ridable rockets. It's a free mode that launched…

Ace Attorney’s localisation team shares a peek behind the wordplay curtain

Lawyer ‘em up Ace Attorney isn’t technically a PC game yet, but it will be come April 9th, and in anticipation Capcom have been putting up blogs about various aspects of the point-and-shout games. Most recently, Janet Hsu from the localisation team has dug into the game’s famous (and often groan-worthy) puns, explaining how they get from Japanese wordplay to English witticisms. It does include…

Monster Hunter: World adding HD texture pack on April 4th

Capcom are laying a common grumble about Monster Hunter: World on PC to rest in a couple weeks, with the release of an optional HD texture pack. While the PC version of the game is the smoothest, nicest-looking way to play the enormous boss rush, eagle-eyed folks noticed that many textures in the PC release were slightly fuzzier up close than their console equivalents. Not…

Devil May Cry 5 returns to the Bloody Palace on April 1st

Over the weekend, I finished my first run through Devil May Cry 5's wild and self-indulgent story. I've still yet to master its complex combat, so I'm eager to return to the Bloody Palace, the arena challenge mode from every DMC since the first. While not quite ready in time for launch, Capcom announced today it'll be rolling out as a free update on April…

Dante’s motorcycle crimes: Devil May Cry 5 released

Motorbikes become deadly weapons in Devil May Cry 5, and not in the usual way. Capcom's return to their mega-murdersome hack 'n' slash sees our lad Dante not only running over demons with his motorbike but picking it up to whack 'em over the head. That's the sort of rockin' wackiness you can now partake in, as DMC5 launched today in the wee hours.

Resident Evil 2 is a crash course in speedrunning

Being a toddler in 1998, I arrived fresh to the Resident Evil 2 remake with bright eyes and principled reservations. I don’t like horror games and I’ve avoided them for most of my life. So when I booted up the newest Resi, I was cast into the deep end of the survival horror pool with no floaties. My first playthrough was fraught with thick Geordie…

Feature: Do no arm

Devil May Cry 5 review

There is a demon, and I'm going to kill it. With style. I'll shoot and slash and somersault, chaining together increasingly outlandish combos while listening to electro-metal where I only catch the odd word like 'sword' or 'death'. Every part of this will feel a little bit magical, and I say that as someone who usually listens to hippies sing about flawed modern power structures…
