Assassin’s Disunity: Ubi’s Excuse For No Female Character

There are four playable characters in the upcoming, co-op-focused Assassin's Creed: Unity, and all four of them are blokes. Glowering blokes most probably, but that remains to be seen. It's a real shame not to have a glowering lady amongst that line-up. This is, unfortunately, not at all uncommon in the mainstream games industry, with its precious demographic targeting and fearfulness to depart from the…

Colossal Command: Dreadnought

Yager quietly took the reigns of the Dead Island series, debuting the trailer for number two earlier today (ignore Riptide), and they've also started to make some noise about the other game they've been working on since Spec Ops: The Line. Dreadnought is a game about bloody great battleships of the skies. As the freelance commander of an armada, you'll be able to customise your…

Grapplewatch 2014: Far Cry 4 Gameplay Swings Away

Ubisoft's big fancy E3 stage show last night introduced the game's kooky villain (so zany!) but while technically in-game footage, this was only the opening cutscene. "Oh gosh bother and drat," I imagine someone in Ubi's marketing department said, "we've only gone and forgotten to show the game. Fix this!" So here comes a new trailer with seven minutes of gameplay, showing off enraged elephants…

Feature: Giger Encounter

Hands-On: Alien Isolation

Alien: Isolation is a hybrid of stealth and survival horror. A game where you are a very weak person against a very strong thing, but where you know where that strong thing is at all times. You can't kill it, but you can avoid it, antagonise it, and occasionally attack it to give you time to flee. I've been wandering the Sevastopol, encountering humans, crafting,…

DOOM 4 Definitely Actually Really Revealed At QuakeCon

You know how id Software always used to say they'd tell us more about Doom 4 at QuakeCon? And that they really meant it this time? Then they stopped doing that because they never had anything to say about Doom 4? Well, you guys, they really mean it this time. They mean it so much, they've even whipped together a cinematic teaser trailer saying that…

Feature: JUDGEMENT DAY

RPS Verdict: E3 2014 Day Zero, Winners And Losers

The triple A team of Alice, Alec and Adam have spent the last 24 hours absorbing every trailer and piece of footage that has emerged from E3. Now they gather together with Graham 'G-Man' Smith to discuss their findings. Does the imminent arrival of a GTA V port please them? Are any of them still wearing socks or has No Man's Sky blown them clean…

When Androids Attack: Alien – Isolation

Edit: Oculus Rift support confirmed for maximum trouser-spoiling. Cat's out of the bag (sorry Jones) - there are synthetic and human enemies in Alien: Isolation! We knew but we hadn't seen them until now. That Sega and Creative Assembly would finally show this to be the case was one of Alice's hopes/predictions for E3 so she's currently gloating in the chatroom. It'll all come to…

Statue Of Killity: Habitat’s Momument-Sized Superweapons

I'm extremely unhappy that Nathan posted about Habitat when it was announced back in February, because as our resident American he was not able to make a joke about a defunct British chain of expensive homeware stores. But it's OK, here I am now, brimful of vacuous references to pine chairs and overcomplicated colanders. Everything's going to be OK. ... Yeah, I'm out. Actually, Nathan…

Batman: Arkham Knight’s Batmobile Looks Really Fun

Pootling around Gotham City in the Batmobile on a sunny Sunday afternoon certainly sounds pleasant, but what the dickens is Batman doing in Arkham Knight that he needs that all that firepower? Battling tanks in the streets for some baffling reason, a five-minute gameplay trailer out of E3 shows. But look, I won't harp on that because oh my giddy aunt the game looks gorgeous…

(Exposed) Muscle Beach: Dead Island 2

In comparison to the original Dead Island trailer, Dead Island 2's announcement video is more honest than Abe and Cherry Tree Washington combined. You remember that trailer, right? The one that broke a thousand hearts when it debuted and then broke them again when the game was more like a first-person Dead Rising than a mourning simulator? Dead Island 2 is just holding its hands…

Grim Fandango Gets New-Fangled At Last, But…

Also in 'hey, PS4, get orf moi land' news, it seems Sony's latest under-telly monolith has managed to hoover up a surprise remastered version of beautifully bittersweet, death-themed adventure game Grim Fandango. No fair - so many of us PC types have been desperately wailing for these last ten years or so. The last great LucasArts game would enormously benefit from some modern spit'n'polish, especially…

No Man’s Sky’s Has Space Dinos & Confusing Exclusivity

Edit - hmm, the language is a bit unclear. Not quite sure if this is PS4 only first, or if PS4 will just be the first console version and thus a PC version might yet be first. Will try to find out! We all made a terrible mess in our underthings when No Man's Sky, Hello Games' surprisingly bold'n'brave follow up to Joe Danger, was…

Sugar And Vice: Hotline Miami 2

GO BIG OR GO HOME. That's the E3 motto that I just made up but I imagine it's fairly close to the instructions that studios receive from their lords and masters. A trailer is delivered and returned. "Make it louder. Make it faster. Add hyperbole. Add buzzwords. Make it bigger or go home. Also, please note that your home has been reposessed until such time…

FIFA 15 Gets E3 2014 Trailer, Is Balls

FIFA 15 is a game that I will definitely play. The latest entry in EA's endless foot-to-ball series will bring the PC version in-line with the next-gen console releases, finally giving us the new physics and graphics engine that console players received last year. It'll also bring one of E3's most hyperbolic trailers, which is embedded below alongside a thousand whiny complaints from me.

BioWare Blathering: Mass Effect And Something Brand New

BioWare have spoken openly about making another Mass Effect game for over a year now (not that it was ever in doubt). They've told us that Shepard's story is over, that it's time for someone new, and that it's not called Mass Effect 4, but that's about all. Surely, one might think, that by E3 2014 they'd be ready to say something solid about the…

You Should Probably Pay Attention To IndiE3

You may not have noticed - for instance, because you are under a rock, in space, or dead - but E3 is happening. So far, it's been about as predictable as they come: sequels we already new about, a couple "hmmm, that might actually be interesting" standouts, and a whole, whole, whole lot of console-focused stuff. Also a bunch of gameplay "demos" that largely demonstrate…

Hidden Himalayas: Far Cry 4

Know what Far Cry needs? A villain so kerrazy that he takes a selfie right after he murders a bunch of people. Thankfully, that's precisely what the series now has in the shape of the mad despot who takes center stage on the box art and rants and raves his way through the debut trailer above. GTA V was the game to popularise the act…

Watch-And-Chat: Ubisoft’s E3 Shindig

Closing out pre-E3 (as far as we're concerned) tonight are Ubisoft, with a press briefing coming up at 11pm here in Blighty. Ahead of the three-ring circus kicking off in earnest tomorrow, let's kick back and watch some video games. Ubisoft's E3 event always has spirit, bless 'em. We've already seen Assassin's Creed co-op and a little The Division gameplay today, so what else is…
