Feature: Zombies: they came to town

Resident Evil 3’s fictional brands are more frightening than the monsters

As I wrote in my review of Resident Evil 3, one of my favourite things about the game is the level of detail that's gone into making Raccoon City feel like a real place, despite all but a few streets of it being mysterious blocked off by walls of rubble and trashed police cars. It's a strangely generic location, with that faint sense of white-label,…

Feature: Blunted

Bleeding Edge review

Bleeding Edge is a third-person 4v4 brawler with a line-up that includes a woman who turns into a motorcycle, a snake who inhabits a zombie, and - soon to be introduced - a dolphin in a mechsuit. There's a feathery, mechanical raptor-lady. There's a fire-breathing goth. There's a grandma, who is also a witch, leashed to a mini hot air balloon. Most of the combatants…

Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord bugs: fixes and workaround for crashes and known issues

Let's just say that Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord has had a bit of a rough start. Performance issues are plentiful and many have complained about it.

Some workarounds have been found, as well as causes for critical errors, so we'll list the most troublesome ones here for…

Premature Evaluation: For The Warp

Early access deck builder For The Warp doesn’t so much wear its FTL influences on its sleeve, as it does creep into FTL’s bedroom when it’s out to try on FTL’s lipstick and stare dead-eyed into a vanity mirror while muttering “I’m a very pretty spacefaring roguelike, yes I am”. If FTL ever goes missing while out for a late night jog, odds are that…

Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord skills: tips for character creation

I've seen complicated skill systems in the past, but I've never seen anything quite like Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord. It took a while, but I think I've managed to decipher just what you need to do to upgrade your character's abilities and make them a force to be reckoned with.

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord performance – how to get the best settings

Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord has finally charged into early access, albeit with quite a number of technical issues in tow if Sin's early experience is anything to go by. I've yet to become mired in the same loading time issues and mission crashes as she has, so I'm afraid I can't offer any quick fixes for those unfortunately, but what I can talk about…

Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord guide: top tips for beginners

It's been a very, very long time, but Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord is finally in early access. But if the first game is anything to go by, the sequel will have some very alien concepts for a lot of people. However, with these top tips and by putting some time into it, you may very well get significantly better at combat and have an army…

Feature: Sea to shining sea

In Other Waters review

In Other Waters is a little game about a xenobiologist named Ellery Vas exploring an alien sea, and finding it (unexpectedly) teeming with life. You don't play the biologist, you play an artificial intelligence powering and controlling her advanced diving suit, but you are essential in helping Ellery to observe and classify these new species, to collect specimens, and to navigate the seabed. Despite what…

The Fnatic React is a great, all-round gaming headset

Fnatic may be better known as an esports company, but as their excellent Fnatic Streak keyboards have shown, they're quite the dab hand at making top-notch gaming peripherals as well. The Streak and its compact tenkeyless miniStreak companion have been sitting atop my best gaming keyboard list ever since they came out, and their Flick 2 and Clutch 2 mice aren't half bad either. Now,…

Feature: The brute of all evil

Resident Evil 3 review

Honestly, I’m glad Resident Evil 3 is a short game, because it was really, really, stressful to play. After six hours of it, I was thoroughly jangled, and just wanted a break from things trying to messily dismantle me. Which, to be fair, means it did exactly what I wanted it to do. Before my nerves tattered and I evolved into a Strategy Dad, you…

Feature: Count & Wait

Mount & Blade 2 is promising, but its performance issues are too serious to review it yet

Mount & Blade predates RPS. That's how long we've been waiting for its sequel, Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, which released yesterday afternoon. I had hoped to have some basic impressions ready last night, but that wasn't possible, because whatever else I can say about this open world medieval(ish) combat RPG, it's completely overshadowed by technical problems.

Feature: Much more than a roguelite

Have you played… Hades?

Wielding the almighty Heart-Seeking Bow, Coronacht, I weave with godlike alacrity between the attacks of my foes, line up the shot, release at just the right moment, and - pop! - they dissolve with a sigh back into the underworld from whence they came. I'm clearing out rooms in record-breaking time, and it's a good thing too, because the infernal contract I signed with my…
