7 reasons I have fallen for Hardspace: Shipbreaker

There are many reasons you should be playing Hardspace: Shipbreaker. It is full of so many details that my idle thought of "I wonder if I could write five things about it" became a list of a dozen within ten minutes. The basic idea is that you fly around disused spaceships and gradually cut them apart for scrap and salvage, in a full 3D simulation…

Feature: Tread gently, for you tread on my cactus

New cactus mod for Stardew Valley has saved my chickens from a life of misery

Fear not, readers: I am still planning to turn my Stardew Valley farm into a battery chicken farm but progress has been slow on that front. Partly because I want to make it into a column called "Mother Cluckers" (which I, like your embarrassing uncle at every Sunday roast dinner, think is an extremely funny pun), but mostly because there are too many mods. And…

All 234 animals in Red Dead Redemption 2 reviewed (part 3)

It's been a little while since I did one of these, but those animals aren't gonna review themselves, so I'd best crack on. And with 43 already given definitive ratings for all time, I'm nearly a quarter of the way through the list. Well, more like one sixth, actually, but who cares about fractions? Anyway, today I've got a much more interesting selection to work…

20 years on, Jet Set Radio is still influencing developers

Okay, so technically it wasn't until 2012 that PC players got to skate, tag and grind for themselves, but June 29th marked the 20th anniversary of the original release of Jet Set Radio (or Jet Grind Radio, as it was known Stateside at the time). An anti-establishment skating action game with a killer soundtrack, Jet Set Radio was the hippest thing ever to burst onto…

Final Fantasy IX is 20 years old today and its soundtrack is still absolutely bangin’

It's Final Fantasy IX's 20th anniversary today and what better way to celebrate one of the best Final Fantasy games ever made than to have a good old-fashioned sing-song? I'm not just talking about bellowing out the game's celebrated end credits theme "Melodies Of Life" either. I mean a proper celebration of one of Final Fantasy IX's enduring legacies: its superb, nay, one might almost…

Mount And Blade 2 Bannerlord has been in early access for a while now and it's clear that it's got a long way to go before it gets all of its features.But if the first game is anything to go by, the sequel will have some very alien concepts for a lot of people.

The joy of stripping armour in Hardspace: Shipbreaker

VINDICATION. That's what Hardspace: Shipbreaker says to me. I have hinted several times that salvage is grossly under-represented in games. And now here's a game all about it, and it as excellent as I'd hoped.Despite being an estimate year from release, Hardspace Colon Shipbreaker already gets a lot of things right. But my favourite thing about it is one I didn't even expect to feel…

Plebby Quest: The Crusades review

Plebby Quest: The Crusades and I did not get off to the best start. This is partly because it’s called “Plebby Quest”, a dreadful title that has little to do with the game itself. Neither "plebs" nor questing featuring prominently. Instead, Plebby Quest is more like a diet Crusader Kings, offering a similarly grand medieval strategy in a package less likely to pack on the…

“Sperm be gone”: people hate The Sims 4’s new eyeliner, so they’ve modded it out

Alrighty, so as you may or may not be aware, about a month ago The Sims 4 got a massive update ahead of the Eco Lifestyle expansion. As well as adding firefighters, ladders, and Sims peeing fire (which was apparently a bug and not a feature), it added some new Mac makeup for CAS (aka Create a Sim, where you make your digital puppets). The…

Each piece of gear, whether it is a melee weapon, ranged weapon, or the armor your hero wears has at least one enchantment slot.The important thing about enchantments is that your hero is not locked to a choice that you have made. As there is no penalty for…

Interview: the art and inspiration of Paralives, the indie game set to take on The Sims

If you're a fan of The Sims 4, or you know someone who is, or even if you just follow people who occasionally retweet simsposting into your timeline, you've probably seen something about Paralives by now. It's... a life simulator? A Sims-like? (I know The Sims can't be the only game of its type, but it's dominated the market for so long that the only…
