RPS Feature Oh it's some games in a list
Dragon Ball was the hallmark of nearly every Thursday night when I was growing up, especially during the infamous run of Toonami on Cartoon Network. I never did keep up with the show’s evolving story, but I was always enamored by the way Goku and pals decimated the world around them as they fought at super Saiyan speed. And that’s the first thing that hit me when I jumped into Dragon Ball FighterZ – Cell flew directly into an asteroid behind him and blew it to bits after I landed a heavy kick directly to his gut. You beat up your opponent and watch the world crumble and collapse.
RPS Feature The Mystery Machine
Where oh where is #9 this week, you ask, uncertain that it is possible to have a top ten without it. A mystery! Of course there are the usual suspects, the increasingly usual new suspects, and even a couple of new entries, but when it comes to slot nine, there’s a gap. The URL for the entry is this, the number seemingly unattached to anything on the store, and not the since deleted entry for the idiotic CS:GO championship sticker collection, as I’d first assumed. Go solve the mystery, mystery solvers! Read the rest of this entry »
RPS Feature Subnautica
Aw MAN! Just when I’d started up a great new running gag for the appearance of GTA V in the charts, this week it’s fallen out! And Divinity: Original Sin 2 has finally failed to make the grade for the first time this year. However, you’ll be relieved to learn CS:GO and Plunkles don’t let us down and wearily continue their infinite reigns.
Meantime, there’s quite a nice mixture of fresh and more recently popular scattered within. Read the rest of this entry »
My knowledge of Dragon Ball Z comes mostly from Britney Spears posting her son’s fan art and cosplay on her Instagram but dang, even I’m a bit excited by today’s launch of Dragon Ball FighterZ. The fighting game looks anime as heck the best way, with flashy animations and stage-smashing attacks, and it’s made by the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue folks so it should decent biffing and all. Our review isn’t ready yet, as we wanted to see the game in its live state, so for now here’s word that it’s out and a warning that some players are finding their fightsticks don’t work with it.

RPS Feature The gaming tundra
Well sound the klaxons, unfurl the flags, hoist your main-braces and petards whatever they may be, 2018 is proving far more interesting for charting Steam games. Of course we can’t escape the three usual suspects, but beyond those this is quite the collection of interesting, independent, and novel games. Read the rest of this entry »
Here’s news for all you Ballheads. The system requirements for 3v3 anime punchathon Dragon Ball FighterZ have been unveiled by Bandai Namco. We also forgot to tell you the release date that was announced last year, so here you go: it’s coming out on January 25. That’s just two weeks from this bright cold day. Anyway, you’ll find the minimum and recommended bits and bobs below. Read the rest of this entry »
RPS Feature Ev3rying Ev3r
Each year E3 rolls around like a giant evil worm, crushing all that’s good and pure. BUT that worm also announces lots of exciting gaming news as it wreaks its carnage upon the Earth. Here we have gathered every announcement, reveal, and exciting new trailer that emerged from the barrage of screamed press conferences over the last few days. And lots of it looks rather spiffy.
A rather enormous 47 PC games were either announced, revealed, or updated upon, with new trailers, information, and released dates that will all be missed by at least three months. We’ve collected the lot, with trailers, in alphabetical order, into one neat place, just for you. Read the rest of this entry »
Dragon Ball, the anime/manga which launched a thousand AOL screen names, is becoming a new fighting game made by Arc System Works. I’ve not been interested in the many Dragon Ball games Bandai Namco have made before, but their decision to draft Arc to make Dragon Ball FighterZ [official site] has me interested. Arc are the studio behind BlazBlue, Guilty Gear, Persona 4 Arena, and other respectable face-punchers, y’see. The 3v3 fighting game’s announcement trailer includes a great many explosions, including a handblast so powerful it zaps out into space. I’m certainly onboard with colours and lights and shouting. Here, have a look yourself: Read the rest of this entry »
