SnowRunner is adding a frozen new map next week

Let it not be said that SnowRunner doesn't have enough snow to run (well, drive) through. The rough n' tough truck sim is adding more routes to get stuck in with Lake Kovd, a treacherous frozen quagmire packed that'll arrive with the game's first season pass update later this week. Hope you've brought tyre chains, because it's about to get real slippery in old Russia.

Hardspace: Shipbreaker has made shift timers optional

Superb spaceship slicing sim Hardspace: Shipbreaker has added a new difficulty option to career mode, with shift timers disabled. The existing career mode cuts you off and forces you back to base every 15 minutes, making things too stressful and intrusive for some. You can now take all the time you want with a wreck instead. They've also made the puzzling decision to give you…

Have You Played… Blood Bowl 2?

If Graham allowed us to swear above the cut, I would one hundred percent have started this post with a string of expletives. Because Warhammer-themed sports game Blood Bowl 2 is utterly maddening. I'm playing in a league at the moment, the bottom of which I am hugging like a flipping anchor, and while the people I'm playing with are great, I dread every fixture…

Hardspace: Shipbreaker review (early access)

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is a game about peeling open spaceships like they’re massive tin cans to reveal the abandoned detritus inside. The belongings of long departed crews hang in the darkness like deep sea fish. Cola bottles and crisp packets wander past your visor, disturbed into aimless tumbles by the change in air pressure when you popped open the airlock like a champagne cork. The only…

Horror turn-based tactics game Othercide is coming in July

The stylish turn-based tactical action of Othercide is coming on July 28th, publishers Focus Home Interactive have announced. That's the post-Apocalyptic one about fighting demon-y beasties with an army of 'Daughters', female warriors who wear flowing scarves and strike cool poses. Lots of talk about suffering. Bit of blood magic, maybe. And sacrifice, definitely. It's a hearty slap of mood, though I've not yet seen…

Feature: A spaceman came sawing

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is so destructive… but so relaxing

Without good, honest workers stripping apart old spaceships, the galaxy would be much more crowded. The reason you never see Luke Skywalker run into traffic is because of the hard work done by the great tradesmen of the Milky Way. If you've always been more interested in carefully dismantling spaceships rather than flying them, Hardspace: Shipbreaker is definitely something you should check out.

Spaceship salvage sim Hardspace: Shipbreaker is now out in early access

Of all the reasons not to release a new game during this busy notE3 period, surely the greatest is that I simply do not have time to play Hardspace: Shipbreaker right now. Launched into early access today by Homeworld 3 developers Blackbird Interactive, it's a first-person sim about carefully cutting up spaceships to sell salvage. Blackbird, do you have any idea how many showcase streams…

Hardspace: Shipbreaker breaks down how to break down a spaceship

Ahead of its early access launch next week, a new vid for Hardspace: Shipbreaker details the delicate process of cutting up an industrial transport ship for salvage without accidentally blowing it up. Coming from Homeworld 3 and Deserts Of Kharak developers Blackbird Interactive, Shipbreaker is a first-person sim about the fine art of space salvage. Buy old ships, crack 'em open, strip them for parts,…

Cutting up starships in Hardspace: Shipbreaker sure looks neat

On the list of mundane tasks done in less mundane settings is Hardspace: Shipbreaker, the deconstruction simulation that turns you into an industrial space worker trying not to get crushed by either flying ship parts or debt. Blackbird Interactive have shared a new video all about chopping up these monstrous ships and heck it looks pretty neat.

SnowRunner review

I took my Chevy to the levee, but the levee wasn’t dry. That’s the problem all over Black River, actually: a recent flood has rendered the soil sodden enough to swallow a car whole. Days of rain have closed the north road out of an already-sleepy Michigan town with rockslides. Power lines are down, too - although that might have more to do with stubborn…

SnowRunner devs want mod support, and mods, available from day one

If there are two things you probably shouldn't be sick of going into SnowRunner, it's trucks and snow. They're sort of essential parts of the chilly Spintires: MudRunner follow-up, right? But if you do get tired of 'em after heading into Saber Interactive's frosty truck sim, fret not. When it launches next week, SnowRunner should launch will full mod support - letting you get behind…

Snowrunner’s latest trailer apes Death Stranding really well

I'd forgotten that Snowrunner, the trucking sim where the weather pushes back you at every turn, is out this month. The trailer reminded me of that, and it also reminded me of Death Stranding. I mean, it's a clear parody of Hideo Kojima's game, but it's also the sad tale of a man in a truck and the family he left behind.

Horror tactical RPG Othercide is coming this summer

First announced back in 2018, Othercide is back with a new trailer today. The mostly grey tactical RPG is full of horrific creatures with plague masks and spindly limbs mixed with splashes of red. Gives me somewhat Bloodborne vibes  seeing those long hunter cloaks and broads fighting monsters in red pumps and scarves. Or maybe it was the organ playing in the trailer wot did…

Homeworld 3 studio are also making a game about breaking spaceships down for scrap

Blackbird Interactive, the makers of Homeworld: Deserts Of Kharak and the upcoming Homeworld 3, today announced another game they have on the go. Hardspace: Shipbreaker is a first-person salvager that will send us into spaceships to carve them up so we can sell the parts for scrap. I thought it sounded like nice, careful, methodical destruction until I saw hazards like fires, engine cores, and…

Spintires follow-up SnowRunner defrosts in time for an April release

Winter might be wrapping up, but it's never too late for an out-of-season blizzard. SnowRunner, arctic follow-up to ponderous mud-crawler Spintires: Mudrunner is bringing the chill back to PC on April 28th. With bigger landscapes, wetter roads and colder bottoms, SnowRunner dares you to turn off the in-car air conditioning and wrap up warm for some slow and steady ice road truckin'.

None of us have enough games that we've bought and never played, right? Last year Epic contributed to my digital pile of still-wrapped games with their constant freebies. Weekly free games will continue through 2020, Epic said last week, so the stack shall grow higher. This week's freebie is the puzzle game The Bridge. Next up to bat is Farming Simulator 19.

Microsoft have been adding new games to the catalog on the regular and you can still grab your first three months for £1/$1. Microsoft announced three more games coming over the next few weeks, making the deal better as usual.

Frogwares save Sherlock Holmes on PC, but 9 of their games vanish from stores

A foul fate has befallen detective game developers Frogwares. After accusing publisher Focus Home Interactive of foul play, nine of ten games threatened with delisting have been removed from sale. Fortunately, it's not a total loss. The sole PC entry in the targeted lineup, Sherlock Holmes: Crime And Punishments has been saved on Steam and secured its survival with a new release on GOG. If…
