Feature: To lose is to win, and he who wins shall lose

The joy of purposefully losing runs in Hades

It took me a couple dozen attempts to escape hell in Supergiant Games’ early access roguelite Hades. Once I succeeded I thought I might give it a break; return when there were new updates. But it absolutely has its claws in me, which is how I found out that mucking about and losing is actually way better than trying to win.

Wolcen: Lords Of Mayhem is ridiculous and I love it

The world is crying out for Diablikes, or at least it seems that way from the rampant success of Wolcen: Lords Of Mayhem, a hacking, slashing, dungeon crawling action RPG that went into the top ten on Steam as soon as it released. It's only climbed higher since, despite the fact that its still in early access and not issue-free. Also despite the fact that…

Wolcen best builds: skills and gear to equip

So you've played a little bit of Wolcen and are now staring into the abyss that is the skill tree. Where do you even start? Luckily, there are some builds out there for new players looking for a bit of direction that cater to all types. From bloodthirsty warriors that spin axes repeatedly, to mages that want to see things explode. We've got a collection…

I defeated both tigers and my enemy to win my first ranked Age Of Empires 2 game

Last week, after a lifetime of timidity, I finally bit the bullet and played my first competitive ranked game of Age Of Empires 2. Needless to say, I got battered. A big medieval boot stomped my fingers from the first rung of the ranked ladder, and I splashed back into the mire where I belonged. But after a week licking my wounds, practising build orders,…

The Witcher 3 combat tips: how to beat any foe with ease

Combat in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a beast of two natures. At its best, it is elegant and satisfying, and rewards careful preparation. At its worst, it's like banging your head against a wall. Good thing we've compiled the below The Witcher 3 combat tips then, to help you achieve the former and steer clear of the latter!

Wolcen Edric: how to kill the act one boss

You saw this big armoured lad early on in Wolcen, slamming into enemies while screaming at the top of his lungs. The bad news for you here is that by the time you face him Edric is even bigger, and he's packing some serious heat in that sword of his. It's not every day that a boss gives players such a large amount of trouble…

This YouTuber built What Remains Of Edith Finch in The Sims 4

Alice L. was the person who really encouraged me to dive headlong into the pool of long build projects that is my fandom of The Sims 4. She is both one third of the Council Of Alices and one third of the RPS VidBud team on YouTube, and she's just started a new Sims 4-themed video series. In Can We Build It?, Alice L. attempts…

Runeterra cards list: every card in the open beta

Legends of Runeterra is a card game and that means there's a lot of cards that are all sorted into different groups. Here they're called "regions", which are like the colours in Magic the Gathering, or similar ways to categorise decks in other collectable card games. There are a ton of cards for each region, so we've put together a full list of cards that…

Runeterra champions: stats and abilities

Legends of Runeterra has been in open beta for a while and has its fair share of unique features. Perhaps the most unique is how it implements the signature League of Legends champions. They are the strongest units in every deck and the ones you'll be mostly forming your deck around. Each one of the six different regions, or colour combinations, that you can build…

Runeterra 0.9.0 patch notes

With the latest Runeterra patch notes, some much needed changes have been made to some key cards that have been a big part of every deck. Deny has finally seen a cost increase, while the power of Fearsome and Elusive decks has also been dropped. In order to keep up with all the changes that will be made to the game, I will be looking…

Have You Played… Europa Universalis 2?

Europa Universalis II will always be one of my favourite strategy games, even if I don't play it any more because its sequels have improved on it so much. Paradox’s epic map-painting series is one of those dependable few whose each progressive entry gets bigger and better than its predecessor, with the annoying bits ironed out, and the best bits amplified. Still, they’re all pretty…

Premature Evaluation: Rover Mechanic Simulator

You can keep your trendy meditation apps and your Himalayan pilgrimages to remote temples where ascetic monks ding little bells and dispense timeless wisdom, because I’ve just discovered something a thousand times more effective at achieving a semblance of inner peace. The absolute best salve for an overheating brain is to quietly dismantle a Martian rover. Just sequester yourself away in the spare room for…

Have You Played… A Case Of Distrust?

The elevator pitch for A Case Of Distrust has got to be one of the most tantalising statements in the history of games. Set in San Francisco in 1924, this narrative mystery game is, and I quote, "a blend of the board game Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective, the adventure games 80 Days and Phoenix Wright, the poster design of Saul Bass, and the hard-boiled novels…

Modder Superior – Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

No matter what may happen to Star Wars, we'll always have lightsabers. That, and loads of great games. Among the best to grace the PC is the Jedi Knight series, the last in its line being Raven's Jedi Academy. It may owe some of its longevity as a multiplayer staple to its engine, a heavily modified Quake 3 codebase, and it can definitely chalk up…

Among Ripples’ creative director on crayfish, capitalism, and 90s Star Trek

Last week I played the prototype demo of Among Ripples: Shallow Waters, and although it was in fairly basic shape, I was both enthused and touched by it. Enthused, because it proved that tycoon games don’t have to cheerlead for the idea of the natural world existing only to fuel exponential financial growth. And charmed, because it chose European freshwater fish - a lifelong, inherited…

Daikatana is a game that lives down to its reputation

When I turn my mind to choosing the next game for Past Perfect, I tend to pick between one of two agenda. The first is to replay a game I remember really enjoying to see if I was right to. The other is to replay a game that has a terrible reputation to see if it's deserved. I think it's obvious Daikatana appears in the…

Have You Played… E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy?

E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy is a name so crap I can't even be bothered to mock it. And yet unlike 95% of crap names, I never forget it. EYE is one of my favourite games. It's a mess. There's so much wrong with it that I could probably slag it off for two full reviews, but I still like it too much.

Feature: Cats for Valentine's Day and a Valentine's Day for Cats!

Priceless Play – 15 February 2020

Well, gang, it's the day after Valentine's Day. The cynic's Half-Price Chocolate Day, the romantic's Intimacy Hangover day, and a day I will spend with my cat. Rather self-indulgently, I'd like to stake a claim in both the cynic's camp and the romantic's, though I don't think my cat cares for either chocolate or long talks about the future of our relationship. She'll never speak.…

Wolcen guide: 25 tips and tricks for beginners

It's been several years in the making, but Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is finally out. This action RPG boasts a lot of options to customise your character to be whatever you want it to be. Maybe you want to build a muscle-bound chap that can throw fireballs, or perhaps a poison inflicting mage that wields a pistol. Whatever floats your boat, there are some things…
