Ooh, check out Gorescript for classic FPS funtimes

Sorry this isn't a more in-depth post, but I've run out of time before my holiday is due to start, and I really want to tell you that Gorescript [official site] is brilliant fun. Found while trawling Steam's New Release list yesterday, this is a classic-style FPS, but oh so much more deadlier, and presented with some charmingly enormous pixels.

Scavenging A War-Torn City In Escape From Tarkov Video

Do you like guns? Do you like guns that realistically jam on you because you scavenged them in a war-torn Eastern European city and you had no other choice because people were trying to kill you and you had to defend yourself? Well that's kind of what Escape From Tarkov [official site] is all about. Last week, some of developers from Russian studio Battlestate Games…

Homefront – The Revolution review

The hot potato of gaming, tossed from publisher to publisher, is somehow complete. Homefront: The Revolution [official site] is out today in the US, and then anachronistically, for no bloody sodding reason, delayed for Europe until Friday. (Is there still a shop that even sells PC games?) In development for five long years, can it possibly hold together? The answer for this open-world shooter is…

I Just Played Turok: Dinosaur Hunter For The First Time

Here's a thing - I've never played a Turok game before. Despite living in a late 90s university hovel with the requisite N64, for some reason it was a cartridge I never put in. And I haven't caught up since. So seeing Night Dive's remastering of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter [official site] was out, it made sense to fill that rather large gap in my knowledge.…

P.A.M.E.L.A. Gets G.R.E.E.N.L.I.T. 48 Hours After Launch

P.A.M.E.L.A. [official site], the upcoming sci-fi survival horror FPS from Canadian studio NVYVE, has been Greenlit after reaching the number one spot just two days after launching on Steam Greenlight. When we last visited P.A.M.E.L.A. earlier this year, information was thin on the ground. A whole lot more has been dropped since, including a trailer, and it looks equally as pretty as it does terrifying.…

How Half-Life Killed The First-Person Shooter

There is a peculiar irony to the impression people have of gaming. When “videogames” are lazily portrayed in the wider world, they inevitably show a soldier being shot through a gun scope. Hell, even within the highest enclave walls, people are wont to dismiss the poor taste of others by snarking, “They’d probably like it if it had a gun floating at the bottom of…

Freeware Garden: Adams Drive 32

Corporation, a shooter the world outside Europe came to know as Cyber-Cop, was one of the first FPS games in the modern sense and, though it's nowadays quite a chore to play through, it still looks lovely. Its flat shaded environments still work beautifully and also happen to be what stealth-'em-up Adams Drive 32 instantly reminded me of.

The Five Stages Of FPS Multiplayer

Over the holidays I started playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer. After initially mistaking it for a "shooting people in the back" simulator wherein I had accidentally signed up to play the exciting role of "sole target" I started to pick into it a bit further, upping my KD ratio and experimenting with a bunch of the loadout perks and options. I think an…

Freeware Garden: S.W.A.P.

You may have not noticed it, but I try to keep the Freeware Garden as varied as possible. No, really, and the fact that I haven't mentioned any multiplayer FPS games yet has been completely coincidental and not at all the result of my being hysterically bored of anything even vaguely resembling Quake. Besides, here's the lovely, lovely S.W.A.P.. The S.W.A.P. is very much an…

Not Dun Yet: Verdun Trailer Shows Updates For WWI FPS

I've been harboring a desire to return to Red Orchestra 2 for a month now, but perhaps I might be derailed for duty on another muddy frontline. Verdun is a multiplayer first-person shooter set in World War 1, about trench warfare, slowly shifting frontlines and squad tactics. It's currently in alpha, and there's a new trailer showing the game's impressive progress below.

Take It To The Bridge: Flagship Is A First-Person Space RTS

As more space games get announced, we're heading towards a point at which every potential role and fantasy from Star Wars is playable as a game, whether under the official brand or not. Star Citizen and Elite: Dangerous let you be Han Solo. EVE: Valkyrie lets you be Luke Skywalker. Now Flagship might let you be Admiral Ackbar. It's a first-person space RTS in which…

Deadfall Adventures Slips To Sept, Announces Co-Op

I do love it when a press release attempts to sell a slip as a piece of news. Deadfall Adventures' release date was so very much set for July 30th that its own website still hasn't shaken the belief. Today it announces it's "confirmed for September 27th release". Phew, confirmed! Anyway, that peculiarly needless griping aside, the real news is that they've announced a co-op…

Call Of Juarez – Gunslinger review

While it's the fourth game in the Call Of Juarez series, Gunslinger is not directly connected to its preceding brethren. A Western that tells the unreliable memories of cowboy bounty hunter Silas Greaves, through first-person shooting, for a remarkably low £12 pricetag. Should it climb atop a horse for dairy consumption, or might it be the sheriff of this here town? Here's wot I think:

Impressions: Sapience

Remember those first fiercely atmospheric moments of Doom: you peering into the soupy murk, only stark corridors around you, and the echo of what sounds like someone clearing their throat repeatedly, but is actually something that will come to make you tense your muscles and prepare to mash 'Fire'? I got this feeling when I started up the demo for Sapience, a retro-style FPS with…

Aliens: Colonial Marines Single Player review

Of course you remember Aliens, right? Who could forget Danny Glover kicking ass on the Discovery One, Sarah Hamilton shouting, "That's how they git you. They're under the goddamned ground!" Ah, the memories. John's spent the day ploughing through Aliens: Colonial Marines, so he can tell you wot he thinks:
