Feature: Drinks all round

Premature Evaluation: Griftlands

You can buy drinks for reprobates in Griftlands. The mingling crimefolk of this sci-fi card game hang out in bars and harbours, lounging on static screens hoping to sell you stuff, or waiting for a fight to break out so they can jump in for either side. There are hairy bouncers, froglike bartenders, and scar-faced bandits. Cultists, bent cops, and bounty hunters of all kinds.…

Dota Underlords gold guide – tips on how to make gold quickly

Learning about gold in Dota Underlords is integral to success. It seeps through all the other interlocked lattices of complexity in the game like a chocolate sauce through the layers of a crushed viennetta; and you'll need to understand all about how to create a bangin' economy if you're to have any hope of keeping pace with your opponents. Fortunately, this Dota Underlords gold guide…

Dwarf Fortress Diary: The Basement Of Curiosity Episode Nineteen – Crossing the Rubicon

Last time on the BoC: Due to a prolonged water shortage during a goblin siege, the dwarves finally breached the underground to slake their thirst. Despite attacks by giant bats and a mishap with a captured goblin swordsman, great treasures were unearthed below - basement founder Lorbam retrieved a feather from Tol, the great winged worm, as well as using herself as bait to catch…

Feature: Devotion to the "public interest"

China forced one horror game publisher to close, but the whole region felt it

Much like the phantoms that materialise and disappear within the dusky corridors of Devotion, the game itself felt like an apparition. Launched in February, the solid Taiwanese horror game vanished from Steam just weeks afterwards, due to the discovery of in-game talismans that contain derisive references to China’s President, Xi Jinping. Facing a firestorm of criticism, its studio, Red Candle Games, hurriedly hunkered down, announcing…

Have You Played… Rime?

What an unexpected journey that was. I certainly didn’t expect the direction Rime went in. I don’t want to spoil the ending, but washing up on an island as a small boy, with a beautiful fox friend to help guide the way as you solve puzzles, sounds absolutely lovely, right? But what a turn it took in the final couple of chapters. What. A. Turn.

Feature: Throwback Thursday

Why are so many old games coming back? We asked developers why they chase nostalgia

Remember that thing you like from 10 years ago? It’s probably getting a sequel. Shenmue 3. Evil Genius 2. Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2. The calendar of upcoming games is packed with throwbacks that will revisit the worlds we left behind over a decade ago. Oddworld: Soulstorm is heading back to the strange homeland of Abe the skinny green freedom farter. Mechwarrior 5 is booting…

Steam Charts: Bubbling Trousers Edition

It's another dire old week in Chartland, with the last breaths of the Summer Sale ensuring, with the exception of spots #4 and #5, that all the usual suspects dominate. But we won't let that change us! We're better than this! We're going to have fun anyway!

Dota Underlords alliances tier list – the best alliances to build around

As if the 60 heroes weren't already enough, there are currently 23 different alliances in Dota Underlords, each with between 1 and 3 stages of power which you can use to augment your autobattling army. But it's not as simple as picking one or two alliances at the start of a match and collecting as many heroes of that type as possible; you have to…

Doom Eternal release date, Battlemode, trailers

With Quakecon just around the corner, we can expect more information about Doom Eternal. In particular, there should be some more about what exactly Battlemode is and whatever happened to that "invading other players games" thing that seemed to be absent in the recent footage at Bethesda's E3 2019. Below then is everything we know going into it, from the multiple trailers to the all-important…

Games like Fortnite – 8 best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale is, so far, the pinnacle of the decade-old battle royale game genre. It's no understatement to say that we haven't seen a game enter the mainstream in this way since Minecraft - but it's not the only battle royale out there, and the genre has never before seen such quantity nor such quality. We'll go over a handful of our favourite battle…

Dota Underlords strategy guide – tips and explanations for beginners

Dota Underlords may have simplified heroes and simplified systems compared with its perplexing, ponderous progenitor Dota 2, but Dota 2 never had over 100 heroes battling each other simultaneously. Yes, in case it's not clear from that pesky "Dota" prefix, Dota Underlords is a tremendously complex game - but it's also an extremely fun one. So we've put together the below Dota Underlords strategy guide,…

Have You Played… Stronghold?

With Stronghold: Warlords recently announced at E3, now seems as good a moment as any to look back on the game that kicked off Firefly’s seemingly endless series of castle ’em ups back in 2001. In fact, I’m genuinely astonished to learn that Warlords will be the ninth game in the series, as despite loving the first instalment, I’ve managed to play precisely none of…

How not to cut trees in Woodcutter Simulator 2011

I am not a religious person, but I must admit some phenomena can’t be explained in a rational way. Like the inconceivable vastness of space. Ghosts sightings. The Brexit. Or United Independent Entertainment’s decision to release Woodcutter Simulator 2011 on Steam in the year of our Lord 2019. I discovered it by chance, a tweet by our dearly departed John Walker casually appearing on my…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for hanging out in a field playing board games. Or for reading the best writing about videogames - although not much grabbed me on that front this week. Here, have something about radically political board games instead. Did you know the suffragettes made a board game about feminism and police violence? Regardless, Renee Shelby's piece for ROMchip is worth checking out. The game…

We'll be going over all the details revealed at E3, as well as previously known information about the release date for PC and…

Earth Defense Force 5 review

2356. That’s how many van-sized ants Earth Defense Force 5 tells me I’ve shot, electrocuted, carpet-bombed, mortared and hammered into chitinous shards and umber mulch. All this since a bad day at work saw my security guard character roped into an increasingly absurd arms-race against gigantic invading alien frogs and their legion of insectoid thralls.
