Paranoia: Happiness Is Mandatory has been secretly pulled from sale

After launching on December 10th, Paranoia: Happiness Is Mandatory has, at some point in the past few weeks, been pulled from sale without warning or explanation. Based on the tabletop role 'em up Paranoia, the dystopian RPG launched as an Epic Games Store timed exclusive in December then vanished in... late January? Early February? The game is gone, and no one even said that it…

It never ends. First there are the Xmas sales, full of gaming turkey for me to fill up on. Then my aunt showed up with Lee Carvallo’s Modern Warfare.

The latest free game Epic are footing the bill for to entice people onto their store is Bad North, 2018's real-time tactics game about handfuls of units defending pretty wee islands against Viking invaders.

Epic have launched a whole new game, Battle Breakers

Epic Games have only gone and launched a new game, Battle Breakers. It's a turn-based "hero collector RPG" thing about building and upgrading an army of heroes, a game with so very many numbers and resources and timers. Battle Breakers seem built for idle tapping on a pocket telephone on the bus, watching explosions and numbers popping off as you wind home through the dingy…

Death Stranding PC will launch simultaneously on Steam and Epic

Now that our console cousins are traipsing all over Death Stranding, the mystery of what it even is has lifted: it's mostly a game about having a nice hike, trying to keep your balance and not to stack it down a hill because of your comically large backpack. I'm well up for a careful walk. The PC release of the first game from Hideo Kojima's…

Feature: The Epic Game Store: reviewed

Epic Games Store: Nearly one year from launch, how is it to use?

The Epic Store’s arrival in December last year marked the single biggest shakeup of the PC gaming marketplace in over a decade. But the discussion surrounding the Epic Store has overwhelmingly been on two subjects: the ethical implications of Epic buying up exclusive games; and the benefits for developers the Epic Store offers.But putting aside whether the Epic Store is some bold trailblazer/harbinger of doom/probably…

Steam Remote Play now has default finger layouts for its most played games

Valve's Steam Remote Play app is one of those little cul-de-sacs that Steam has that is generally very useful, but if you didn't know about it you probably wouldn't have bothered to seek it out. It lets you stream your games from your PC to weaker hardware, like a tablet or a phone, almost certainly while on the toilet. On a phone, something like this…
