Open Call: Epic Offering EGX Floor Space To Unreal Devs

At any big gaming conference or expo I've been to there's been a strong dividing line between mainstream and indie. Both are awful labels, but for sake of simplicity: the former fills cavernous halls with booths, music, and major publisher money, while the latter normally finds itself a corner of carefully curated darlings, most featuring sprite graphics and other symbols signalling that the game is…

See Games With Your Face At EGX London In September

We tell you these video games are real, but what do you know? "Yeah, Alien: Isolation is so scary," we tell you, while tittering behind our hands because we know there's a rocket launcher by the lava pit in level three. "Oculus Rift yeah? It's magic," we say. It's not. It's a miniature head-mounted lunchbox made for people with bad memories who forget their sandwiches…

Guilty Of Awesome: Framed

Comic books eh, who'd be interested in them? Don't even move or nuffin'. You'd have to be a real hardcore nerd to take even the barest interest. Oh, that's all of you, you say? And me as well? Alright then: the fantabulous looking Framed's premise is that by rearranging panels in a noir graphic novel you are given control of the direction and tone of…

People Vs Predators: Crysis 3 Hunter Mode

More footage from the weekend's Eurogamer shindig. Crysis 3's 'infection type multiplayer mode, Hunter, is shown in a new video, demonstrating the Museum of Modern Art map. I'm not sure if everyone else already knew this but the Crash Site mode from Crysis 2 is back as well. That's all about reaching and securing a location on the map and made for some interesting use…

Some members of RPS will be in attendance at the show on the Friday at least, but on Saturday we must all flock to Bath as a last ditch attempt to rescue…

RPS Indie Awardoramarama

The Eurogamer Expo has been and gone, but RPS's brain-dumps about the games therein will continue over the days to come. YOU WILL LISTEN AND YOU WILL BELIEVE AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND. One of the things we did at the Expo as well as play games, however, was judge some games. Specifically, the 12 splendid titles selected with the help of the good folk of…

Race For The Prize: RPS Indie Award-Giving

It's an important week for the Rock, the Paper and the Shotgun. Not only are we partially lopping off one of the Hivemind's core nodes (/sadface), but we're also presenting our first-ever award. Specifically, for the best title at the Eurogamer Expo's Indie Game Arcade this weekend. Members of RPS will be performing mystic incantations and inappropriate mental snuggling in order to ascertain which of…

So, I've OBEYED YOUR WILL and done some phoning around and actually booked a room for RPS' EVIL USES on Friday October 1st. Full details follow, including what I suggest folk do on the other nights. EDIT: There's a second map…

Hands-On With Global Agenda

Via the Eurogamer Expo, we got some time with Global Agenda. Here's the hands-on experience, complete with some input from the developers themselves. Global Agenda is a game straddling two worlds. It has two different payment schemes, and two different games within itself, almost. It’s a multiplayer third person shooter, with a class based system and jetpacks. But it’s also a huge sprawling PvE/PvP MMO,…
