Feature: TOO MANY ZOOZ

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for looking. Scrabble around your brimming shelves until you find it down the back of your Gamecube games. A lighter, still full. Flick it on and hold it underneath your monitor till the heat warps the plastic, the frame cracks, and liquid crystals start to dribble on to your desk. Trepanning is the only way to get the madness out.Mark Johnson is working…

Feature: Slithering Sales

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Flash Frustration

I wrote about three games today that were, quite sadly, part of flash sales. In my pizza-birthed delirium, I made the mistake of forgetting to check if the deals would last long enough for me to transfer ownership of this column to an editor. They didn't. So I am writing this introductory paragraph right now with my eyes carefully narrowed and a frown like thunder.…

Feature: Mopping Up Bargains

The RPS Bargain Bucket: What the floof?

We helped put together a bundle of our own this week, which feels slightly bizarre because we're usually writing about bundles. (At least, I am.) Bargains continue to rain across the internet however, so get out your wallets and start your weekend with a well-considered purchase. (Also, this week's fluffy chimera is from Jim Huxter.)

Feature: Turbulent Mess

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Black Saturday

Here, in Malaysia, Hungry Ghost Festival is slowly creeping towards the end and soon, it will once again be safe to gallivant through dark alleys. Or something. (You shouldn't visit dark alleys anywhere, folks. It is a Bad Idea.) This week has been a turbulent mess, for more than one reason, and I apologize for the lack of caffeine-driven cheer. It rather doesn't help that…

Feature: Do not cuddle

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Arachnophobia

Guys, I have a confession. I spent so much of last week being excited about creating silly YouTube videos (which you can watch here, if you missed it the first time) that I completely forgot to tell you this: someone is making a Horace plushie. Not because we asked her to. Not because it was sanctioned by the editorial overlords. But, because that person is…

Feature: incredible revelation

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Insert Pun

I actually watched movies recently. Including The Lego Movie, which I had somehow missed for months. My god, why didn't anyone tell me that a film could cause such a pure, electronic sense of joy? I am giddy with love. Especially for Unikitty, who should bleed rainbow sparkles. In commemoration of this incredible revelation, I'm including this absurd short video entitled 'The Pasta Don' at…

Feature: a rowdy montage

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Shell Power

Have you watched Guardians of the Galaxy? I have not but that is on the plate this weekend. And from what I hear, it's like the chilli cheese fries of comic book-inspired movies, a rowdy montage of action scenes and - dear god, I hope we don't drown under the video game spin-offs. You know they're coming. Flee. Flee under your buckets and take shelter…

Feature: inexorably tied

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Cat Dog World

It's Comic-Con International 2014, and you know what that means. It's time for grand announcements about new intellectual properties, gossip about beloved cult TV series, and a truckload of thematically appropriate bargains. (And anecdotes about questionable behaviour, but those appear to be inexorably tied to the convention experience. Sigh.)

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Ole Ole

Being on the road is bad for Bargain Buckets. I can't write and ride. If I do, I'd have to use the bucket for unpleasant purposes. (This is, I suppose, a roundabout way of explaining why I was missing last week.) Has everyone been playing Divinity: Original Sin? If not, you should. It's absolutely amazing, and it made Adam go on and on about it…

Feature: vulgar displays of magic

The RPS Bargain Bucket: So Peculiar

Steam is having their annual summer sales, which means a conglomeration of flash deals and bargains that will no longer exist by the time you read this. Grumble grumble. Similarly, we have GOG.com reducing prices like crazy and ShinyLoot, BundleStars, and a cast of smaller names filling out whatever space is left. In light of that, Bargain Bucket will only be tangentially focused on games…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Like Penguins

There's really not much to say about this week except, "You know Steam is having a sale, right?" But not just them. Everyone seems to be joining into the fun. The real question is, of course, how many of these games will actually be played once the discount frenzy has ended. One? Two? How many will be relegated to the digital depths of game libraries…

Feature: King of the bucket

The RPS Bargain Bucket: In the Jungle

There are a lot of fun, fun things happening over at GOG.com right now, including collections and great titles made stupidly cheap. As of the time of writing, I see a Blackwell Bundle that is 80% off, a mammoth conglomeration of D&D games going for pennies, and friggin' Incredipede with a 85% discount. Sadly, by the time you read this, they'll likely no longer be…

Feature: Scratches catalyzed

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Wallet Bursters

Aaaaah? AAAAAAH. In case anyone was wondering, Tiguh X's plush Xenomorph actually elicited a bit of a yelp when I first saw it. ANYWAY. Now, ordinarily, I like kicking off Bargain Bucket with something completely unrelated to the column but I'm going to take the opportunity here to point out that Green Man Gaming has gone bonkers with the whole sales thing of late. It's…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Cats in Planes

This week has been a bit of a blur for me albeit in an awesome way. It's not every day you're startled into remembering that a beloved book series is being adapted for the television. (The Strain is squee, guys. Squee.) I can't abide by the kind of vampires that have slowly crept into media these days. Flashy, sparkly things built for lust rather than…

Feature: Call Me Maybe Not

Watch Dogs review

One day you will purchase a multi-pack bag of assorted crisps. Maybe because you're going to a party, maybe because you're living on a budget. You won't be overly fond of any of the contained flavours, every bite will feel a little on the soft side of fresh, and the individual packets will be 90% air, but you'll at least feel comforted by having choice…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Suave People

Who knew cosplay events could be so packed? I spent the earlier part of today cautiously inching through a local mall in search of candid moments. Unfortunately, I didn't come home with too many photos. I was shy, and everyone else had a better assortment of camera equipment. Also, the shoving. Oh, the shoving. On the bright side, I managed to come home in one…

Interview: Adding Shieldmaidens To War Of The Vikings

War of the Vikings, Paradox Interactive's sequel to the gritty and gruesome War of the Roses, is about to receive its first expansion, a relatively modest addition that adds one new class: the Shieldmaiden. Executive producer Gordon Van Dyke, a veteran of multiplayer development who can trace his history back to some of the early Battlefield games, says it's an opportunity to not only shake…

The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for being brief.Keith Stuart at the Guardian looks at the influence HR Giger had over videogames.In turn, the Alien movies would go on to inspire a whole generation of game designers and artists. The first-person shooter Doom mixed demonic monsters with claustrophobic sci-fi environments, and Giger's weird organic interior designs doubtless inspired the game's miles of intestinal corridors and womb-like interiors. The influence…

Feature: Eat My Soul

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Mountain High

Lightroom is going to eat my soul. Lightroom has already eaten my soul. After weeks of debate, I finally capitulated and resigned myself to purchasing the software. Then, it devoured my Saturday. All of it. Each and every moment not otherwise spent dealing with human ablutions and food. I am ashamed, but also hopelessly smitten with the software. (Do you have any useful obsessions, Bucketeers?)…
