The Suicide Of Rachel Foster review

If you couldn't tell from the title, The Suicide Of Rachel Foster makes sure you know it's about proper issues with one of them big content warning screens up front. Normally these feel a bit like grandstanding. There are sensible ways to deliver content warnings, and a game signposting that it is extremely serious business in massive white letters on a black background usually means…

The 20 best survival games on PC

Ever since Minecraft got us hooked on surviving its deadly nights and sinister, snickering foes over a decade ago, there have been wave upon wave of new survival games to scratch our deepest masochistic itches. Attempting to tackle them all at once, however, would probably lead to an early grave, so we've put together this list of the very best survival games on PC to…

5 near-certain predictions for Hearthstone

There's big news in the draw pile for Hearthstone, apparently. The collectible card game's three-a-year expansion cycle tends to run from April to April, and if last year's timings are anything to go by, we can expect a reveal of the next year's theme, plus an idea of upcoming content, in the next week or so. What's making this a bigger deal than usual is…

The 12 most extravagant lines of dialogue in games

The greasy realm of the videogame is not always the best place to look for good writing. For every Disco Elysium there are roughly 800 Detroit: Beyond Humans. But it is a good place to look for wondrous, over-the-top nonsense. I’m talking about character dialogue so flamboyant and exaggerated, you could insert some line breaks and it would instantly become a verse in a glam…

Have You Played… Castle Crashers?

Castle Crashers was, like predecessor Alien Hominid, a beautifully animated, arcady, 2D scrolling beat ‘em up by The Behemoth. It eventually made it to PCs in 2012, although it was out on console in 2008. Curiously, however, I know for sure that I played it in 2007 - I guess it must have been a demo, or something. But good grief, what a vivid memory…

Wolcen Lambach: how to kill the act two boss

Throughout Wolcen's second act, you are tormented by a rather odd presence. It seems that this entity is converting everything and subjecting them to its hive mind. With the right gear setup, the second act boss is nowhere near as hard as the previous act's final duel, but knowing where to stand seems to be the biggest hurdle.

Wolcen skill tree: how to upgrade your character

While the skill tree in Wolcen is nowhere near as big as some other action RPGs, it is one of the more interesting to navigate. It allows you to customise your character into the type of character you want them to be. You could be a dedicated warrior that specialises in tanking damage and cleaving through enemy ranks, or a mixture of an assassin class…

I used blocks from the new Minecraft snapshot to make a fungal horror shrine

Minecraft's upcoming 1.16 update is going to give the Nether - the game's weirdo hell dimension - a long overdue glow-up. As of this month, Mojang have started trickling 1.16 content into the game via weekly 'snapshot' builds, which can be played in parallel to your main Minecraft installation. Now there's a couple of these available, featuring oddball megamushrooms, eerie blue lights and unappealing pig-goblins,…

Feature: Doomed... to be best friends!

The Doom and Animal Crossing fandoms wish each other luck, are wholesome and lovely

We don't really get the chance to write about Animal Crossing here in the PC gaming wasteland, even though several members of the team are avowed fans of Nintendo's build a lovely village and make friends 'em up. Happily, the somewhat unlikely crossover between Animal Crossing's fans and those of gory demonslaying FPS Doom has given me a valid reason. Doom Eternal's release was delayed…

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 it's only just left early access and is not issue-free. Also despite the…

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,…

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…

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…
