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.

Monster Hunter: World PC Iceborne expansion – Witcher event details, free updates

Before the next big expansion of Monster Hunter: World, there's one more event update which introduces stuff from The Witcher. The update will include a new monster to fight, as well as a hybridisation of both Monster Hunter and Witcher systems to create a unique quest - featuring a playable Geralt of Rivia. This guide will go over all the details we know for the…

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…

Hold it! Phoenix Wright Trilogy coming in April

The courtroom drama of Phoenix Wright and pals will finally get a proper PC release with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy on April 9th, Capcom have announced. Their series of dramatic and funny courtroom visual novels has mostly been confined to Nintendo's pocket computers, only tentatively dipping its toes into table computing in weird and fleeting ways, so it's grand to see the first three…

Devil May Cry 5’s live-action placeholder cutscenes are grand

The 'Deluxe Edition' of games are usually skippable, charging an extra £10 for a handful of PDFs and MP3s and JPGs plus maybe a balance-breaking item or two. Not so with Devil May Cry 5, where your tenner will buy you the usual guff AND very special alternate cutscenes: the live-action "pre-viz" videos made with toys and cardboard props and people in scrappy costumes. These…

Resident Evil 2 mods replace Mr. X with an equally terrifying Thomas The Tank Engine

Replacing all of Skyrim's dragons with Thomas The Tank Engine was all fun and games, but I’m beginning to think we have accidentally unlocked a terrible curse, an urge in the heart of modders everywhere to insert him into more and more games. His latest appearance sees him replacing Mr. X in Resident Evil 2, and I think the horror of being relentlessly pursued may…

Feature: The gory gauntlet

Resident Evil 2’s Ghost Survivors is a corking horror obstacle course

With his final breath, I like to think that Resident Evil 2’s Robert Kendo cursed the lying huckster that installed his double glazing. ReMakesident Evil 2, clearly conscious of besmirching the good name of glass salesman the world over, fleshed out Kendo’s story into one of its most human scenes, but still left a haunting question mark hovering over the fate of him and his…

Resident Evil 2 brings fresh, free scares in The Ghost Survivors DLC

I refuse to play Resident Evil 2, because I am, proudly, a coward. But if you’re braver than me, there’s now more game, and you can get it for free. The Ghost Survivors takes players into a “what if” universe, offering alternate stories for three pre-existing characters as they try to escape from the biological disaster that befell Raccoon City. All of them are teased…

Feature: Scream if you wanna go faster

The Joy Of S-ranking Resident Evil 2

I’m not usually one for speedrunning. I do however get a kick out of being able to get through a game much faster on the second or third time around. There’s just an immense satisfaction of revisiting a brain-bending puzzle or boss fight that had you agonising over an hour the first time, only to mop it up in minutes on a second run. Of…

Devil May Cry 5 director could have made Dragon’s Dogma 2 instead

Now that Devil May Cry 5 is almost here, director Hideaki Itsuno has revealed he could have been making a very different sequel instead: a follow-up to Dragon's Dogma. Capcom's 2012 fantasy RPG, which came to PC in 2016, is a game I've heard people gush about in the same way I do Deadly Premonition, though I'm sorry to say my response has been the…

The quest to make Resident Evil 2 ’19 more like Resident Evil 2 ’98

A hugely impressive reimagining of a classic videogame has been released, so there's only one thing for it - mod it until it's just like the original. Boo, 2019, boo! Take, for example, videos which replace the free-moving over-the-shoulder camera of the brilliant Resident Evil 2 remake with the fixed camera angles of the 1998 original. While I'm very happy with how the remake does…

Resident Evil 2 mod lets you play in first-person mode

The Resident Evil 2 remake is a blood-soaked good 'un. The infested police station and sewers of Raccoon City have been recreated to bring the 1998 zombie romcom kicking and biting into the present day. Among other polishes, it gets rid of those dated fixed camera angles. The good Capcom boys and girls have given us an over-the-shoulder camera while injecting their survival horror classic…

The RPS Verdict – Resident Evil 2

The zombie remake first confounded Matt in his Resident Evil 2 review, before winning him over with its survival horror. Since then, two RPS folk who remember the 1998 original have had time to confront the undead. So what's our final verdict? Brendan: Oh hello, Matt. Hi, Dave. Fancy meeting you two here, among these burning ambulances and smashed-up lamp posts. Raccoon City definitely isn’t…

Resident Evil 2 in Noir mode is twice as scary, ten times as stylish

Stop whatever you're doing and go and buy some entirely superficial DLC for the latest release in a mainstream videogame franchise right now. Today is the day Rock, Paper, Shotgun betrays everything it once stood for (for about three hours one day in July 2008, probably). Because today is the day I played the excellent Resident Evil 2 remake in the nothing-less-than-glorious Noir mode.
