Will It Harvest Moon? – a beginner’s field guide to rehabilitating inferior games

To this day, the jaunty static of the opening jingle to Harvest Moon: More Friends of Mineral Town brings me back to a simpler time. Summer evenings spent hunched over my Game Boy SP, a pane of glass between me and nature’s suburban bounty as I tilled my little squares of land, pet my happy little chickens, and bribed a town’s worth of reticent heartthrobs…

Podcast: The games you might have missed in 2019 so far

 You can’t play everything. Trust us, we’ve tried. You can’t even take note of all the games that come out in one week. Our mushy human brains can barely keep track of why we’re standing in the dairy aisle. Was it milk we're low on? Or butter? Yoghurt? Hang on, I'm vegan. What am I doing here? Anyway, you’re bound to have missed a…

The Noita devs on how to make a fun game when everything is falling

Noita is a very giffable game. The official Twitter account for developer Nolla Games has a lot of cool gifs. Explosions. Acid. Ice. Rats. Noita is that game where every pixel in the word is animated. You can explode, burn, melt everything you see, as a little witchy character exploring a procedurally generated dungeon. I was sitting around a laptop on the floor with the…

Total War: Three Kingdoms graphics performance: How to get the best settings on PC

Playing a Total War game has always been a bit of an uphill battle on PC. With their detailed maps and densely-populated armies, they're some of the most graphically-intensive games around today - and if you've read any of the graphics card reviews I've done here at RPS, you'll know that Total War: Warhammer II is one of the regular games I use for benchmarking.…

Mordhau shields guide – shield stats & info, how to use and counter shields

Mordhau's selection of shields is remarkably diverse both in size and in terms of their potential for completely shaking up Mordhau's magnificently elaborate combat system. This Mordhau shields guide is, I think, a necessary addition to our Mordhau series, because not only have I seen many players asking what the point of shields is as they appear far too weak and cumbersome, but I've also…

Pathologic 2 review

Pathologic 2 is cursed. And me too, because I’m saddled with reviewing the follow-up to a cult favourite. Pathologic was a first-person plague doctor simulator that was badly broken and refreshingly unusual. Depending on your sensibilities, you’ll be glad to learn that this reboot is also a godforsaken mess littered with interesting ideas, none of which will be appreciated because it is hobbled by a…

Ritual Of The Moon diary: day 19

Look, I'm very busy again today. I'm back from being on holiday and nothing is finished, and I have to stay late tonight for unrelated reasons anyway. I don't understand those people who are like, "Oh I made a lemon drizzle cake when I got home, because I had a spare hour." HOW? And, when you have a spare hour, how do you stop yourself…

Wastes Of Space: A Space Engineers Diary – Part Four: The Space Race

Last time on Wastes Of Space: The RPS crew managed to firm up their toehold in the alien hills of Horace’s World, under the tutelage of their peculiar assistance droid, ODD. Survey Officer Ligz went on an ill-fated mineral-seeking expedition, Science Officer Cox decided he was a god, and the increasingly authoritarian Security Officer Crowley used all the crew’s metal to make a hooning great…

Dwarf Fortress Diary: The Basement Of Curiosity Episode Twelve – Pressure Cooker

Last Time on the BoC: After a catastrophic goblin attack slaughtered the entire military (except Id), as well as their bloodthirsty mayor/captain, the Basement began a frantic programme of fortifications. Former mayor Urist, transformed by grief, was re-elected, and pledged to put aside her differences with Lorbam the Founder in order to make the Basement Of Curiosity the finest zoo in the land.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood release date, trailer, Buddy Pass, story, setting

Wolfenstein: Youngblood looks set to provide a same-but-different experience to that of MachineGames' previous (and excellent) Wolfenstein titles, placing players in the shoes not of beloved B.J. Blazkowicz but of his twin daughters, Jess and Soph. Our Wolfenstein: Youngblood guide will walk you through everything we know about the game so far, from release date and pre-order details to info on story, setting, combat, and…

Fortnite weapons guide (V9.10) – Fortnite guns, weapon stats, best weapon in Fortnite Season 9

Fortnite's weapons roster has never been given much time to settle down throughout its history, but Season 9 has taken this to new levels. Not only have we seen two new weapons and the vaulting of some old classics, but now we've got the old Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle to discuss for the first time in about 3 seasons. What better time, we thought, to go…

Fortnite Snipers guide (V9.10) – Fortnite Sniper tips, Sniper aiming guide, Fortnite’s best Sniper Rifle

There's nothing quite so satisfying in Fortnite as landing a good headshot on a moving enemy from afar with a sniper rifle. But for so many players, it happens far too infrequently, because snipers are fickle guns which require great accuracy and timing to use well. Well, our Fortnite Snipers guide is here to change that. Updated for v9.10 of Fortnite, we've got all the…

Have You Played… Hacknet?

Many years ago, when I traipsed the streets of Belfast city with the menacing incisors of a 15-year-old who did not get braces when he should have done so, I often met with a pal and mentor in sub-criminal activities. Let’s call him "Firebastard". Firebastard was a good friend, and a knower of various clandestine arts. We all have that mate who downloaded The Anarchist’s…

Ritual Of The Moon diary: day 18

Alright, yesterday was depressing and made some of you sad (buddy, if you think reproductive healthcare bums you out, imagine how some of the rest of us feel!). But today I'm actually feeling pretty good today, which is out of sorts with Marty Burnham The Moon Witch, who is feeling trapped by hope. That probably needs a whole several hundred words of analysis by itself.…

Corsair M65 RGB Elite review: Taking the weight off

Finding a good gaming mouse can sometimes feel like you're stuck in the story of Goldilocks. You don't want one that's too heavy, nor do you want one that's too light. Instead, you want one that feels just right under your palm. Or you could just buy a weighted one such as Corsair's new M65 RGB Elite and make your own mind up as you…

Mordhau archery guide – Longbow, Recurve Bow, Crossbow tips and techniques

Archery in Mordhau is a bit of a polarizing topic. At times a skilled Longbowman laying waste to their enemy from afar can be just about the most frustrating thing imaginable. Other times, you might go what feels like 5 whole minutes without ever landing a shot - except on your own teammates. If you're looking to improve your game from the latter to the…

Mordhau patch notes & future content – official duel mode, modding tools, new maps

If, like me, you've been having a tremendously good time with Mordhau since its release just the other week, then you'll no doubt be interested in all the upcoming content and new features that developers Triternion have promised are on their to-do list. Our Mordhau patch notes and future content guide will not only run through everything that's changed in Mordhau since its release, but…

Observation review

I can't think of another game that has so quickly made me care so much. I'm staring at Emma Fisher, adrift in zero gravity after (another) unknown calamity has buckled our space station and briefly disabled my camera feed. I'm looking at what might be a floating corpse, aghast at the idea that I'm responsible for it. She isn't moving. She isn't telling me what…

Thea 2: The Shattering review

God does not play dice with the universe, I once read on a Mini Milk stick, but Thea 2’s pantheon of Slavic-inspired deities seem well up for a game of cards. You don’t play as a mortal in this hybrid strategy role-playing game, but an all-powerful entity guiding the life of a hapless schmo in their quest from wanderer to chosen hero of a blossoming…

Have You Played… Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet?

I love flying my tiny, insanely twisted shadow ship in Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. Regardless of whether you like the rest of this 2D Metroidvania-y exploration game, the one thing you cannot fault is the feel and handling of your silhouetted space saucer. It's such a joyous thing to whizz around the screen, responding effortlessly to every key press with the elegance of a rocket-powered…
