Rock Of Ages Rolls Over Art, Wizards

Ace dev team ACE Team have released a new trailer for their boulder-rolling history-of-art puzzle game, Rock Of Ages, and it shows the ball in action, doing funnies. Previously we saw power ups which embue your happy rolling rock with temporary powers, such as being tough, or being on fire, and there's some of these here, too. If only life had temporary power ups beyond…

The Blood Is Love: Crusader Kings 2 Trailer

Are you excited about Crusader Kings 2? No? That must be because you don't know what it is. You can read my preview here, but the long and short of it is that the original Crusader Kings sat you in the role of a medieval king, but let you concern yourself more with relationships and human politics than what you were going to build where,…

RPS Electronic Wireless Show E3 Special

Blimey, here's a surprise. Dusting off our podcasting tools, John and special guest Dan Griliopoulos gather in a noisy restaurant to discuss what they've seen at E3 so far. Not only do you get to hear about Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Tomb Raider, Hitman, Deus Ex, Serious Sam 3, Payday, Torchlight 2, Saints Row: The Third, DUST 514, Dead Island, Batman: Arkham City, and many more,…

Battlefield 3: Eight Minutes Of Tank

Missed the tank bit from Battlefield 3 that everyone was talking about? It's below. Highlights include a dinosaur, a glimpse of tank interior, a subsequent air-strike, some poor fella tumbling out of a stricken tank on fire, and so, so many explosions. The question for me is whether we can expect multiplayer battles with similar vehicular carnage. If we're going to get 64-player maps, then…

Razer Announce Old Republic Gaming Gear

How's your keyboard? Old? Stinky? Are there so many crumbs under the keys that you can barely type, and when you can it sounds like somebody eating biscuits? Well, Razer's just announced a new range of PC peripherals branded around upcoming MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic, and... well, it's not like I can tell you whether they're any good. They've only just been announced.…

High Times: Take On Helicopters

Earlier in the week I managed to have a chat with Bohemia boss Marek Spanel and one of the games he talked about was this: Take On Helicopters. It's a civilian helicopter sim set at first in Seattle, and then on a more global stage. The game uses the Arma 3 engine, and a fresh take on the dev's helicopter handling and controls. It will…

Knight Time! The King Arthur 2 E3 Trailer

I'll tell you what looks good. King Arthur 2 looks good. The sequel to 2009's fantasy "role-playing wargame" (see our review here), King Arthur 2 sounds like it'll be that most noble of gaming sequels- taking everything that we liked about the first game, and gently tightening it up and making it that much bigger. None of this trying to appeal to a broader audience…

Shine A Light: Dark Millenium Online Trailer

In the grim darkness of the future, there is only Warhammer 40k MMORPG Dark Millenium Online. No, seriously- I'm not sure that there's another game we've been posting about this E3 week with a release date as far off as 2013. Curiously, this (brief) trailer brands the game as a "Massively Multiplayer Online Action Experience", and when I had a brief chat with the developers…

CCP: Sony “More Open” To DUST Experiment

Producer Thomas Farrer explained the controversial decision to make EVE tie-in shooter DUST 514 a PS3 exclusive in an interview with RPS earlier today. He explained: "most of DUST is running on our own technology, it’s running on our own super-computer, on Tranquillity. And Sony is a lot more… open, shall we say, to allowing you to do those things. It may seem silly, but…

Dragoning On: Fourteen Minutes Of Skyrim

It's Magicka morning here on RPS! No, wait... the other one. G4 have released a big old slice of Skyrim footage (although some of it is repeated) with dicussions between their presenters and Besthesda's charming frontman, Todd Howard. He says the game has "micro-detail", and the presenters talk about all the flowers on the ground. Bunch of hippies. More pertinently, Howard gets excited about the…

Interview: CCP On DUST 514 And EVE

While we've known about DUST 514 - the console accompaniment to the PC's grand space MMO EVE - for quite a while, yesterday's announcement that it's to be a PS3 exclusive has brought it to everyone's attention once more. So I grabbed CCP's senior producer on EVE, Torfi Frans, and DUST producer, Thomas Farrer, to try to find out their motives. What is DUST? How…

Neverwinter Teaser, Site Open For Reg

You might recall that last year I talked to Cryptic's Jack Emmert about the MMO he called "an old school Western tactical RPG". It's Neverwinter, a game that also, apparently, marks a new direction for the studio. You can see some of the fruits of that new direction over on the official site, and also in the teaser trailer below. Looks like a fantasy action-RPG…

Trion’s Defiance MMOFPS Is Intriguing

Trion and the tediously-named SyFy TV channel are teaming up to create a multiplatform MMOFPS that somehow links into a TV show, apparently going as far as featuring player's characters in the TV show part of it. The project is called Defiance, and there's a teaser trailer below showing flowers, part of an insectile monster, a heavily modified Golden Gate bridge, and a man with…

E3 2011 Secret Diary: Monday

Tuesday 7th June, 11am: So Monday contained the first proper bit of E3ing - the EA conference. This took place in a theatre in central LA, with quite the embarrassing typo on the outside. They've called it a "theater"! Everyone seemed too polite to point it out, so I didn't say anything. So 800,000 games journalists crammed themselves in and everyone attempted to set up…

LoTRO’s Third Expansion Detailed, Trailered

MMORPG Lord of the Rings Online may have gone free to play, but that doesn't mean Turbine have to stop making pay-for expansion packs. The third, Rise of Isengard, now has a date- September 27th. It'll bring with it three new areas (Isengard, Dunlan and the Gap of Rohan), a level cap increase up to 75, a new 24 player raid and more. I'm continually…
