Rocket League 1.04 Adds Arena And Spectator Mode

Rocket League [official site] is our game of the month for August. Why? Because it's ace and it's about to get even more so with patch 1.04 and the upcoming DLC, Supersonic Fury. The DLC is on the way later this month, but the patch is laying groundwork for it and out now. It's pretty hefty by itself, adding much-needed features such as spectator mode along with a new…

Rocket League’s Best Replays, Videos And GIFs

Rocket League [official site] is RPS's Game of the Month for August, and part of the reason why is that it's almost as fun to watch as it is to play. That's why we wanted to highlight the best Rocket League players and plays. I've searched the highs and lows of the internet for skilled backflips, astonishing saves, one of a kind goals and the best of…

The RPS Verdict: Rocket League

Rocket League [official site] is our Game of the Month for August, so Adam, Alec and Graham gathered to kick the tyres - and steer the balls - of the surprisingly nuanced cars-wot-play-football multiplayer game. Graham: Rocket League might be my favourite multiplayer game in years.

Game of the Month: July – Her Story

Videogames spilling out of closets. Videogames stuffed under your bed. Videogames in your hair, and in your eyes, nose and mouth. Shrunken videogames clogging your pores, marching through your arteries. Videogames like rocks in your stomach. Oh, hello. Are you suffering from too many videogames? That's why doctors* created Game of the Month. Take just one videogame monthly and you can fight the ill effects…

Artful Dodging: Why Invisible, Inc.’s Rewind Button Is Great

Are you the kind of person who finds the stealthy route through every Deus Ex level, and who strives to ghost and no-kill every Dishonored level? Me too, but recently I've started to realise there's a cost to playing this way. A perfect ghost run requires just that: perfection. Being spotted is a blemish on my record that I just can't abide – so the…

Feature: Incredible, Inc.

The RPS Verdict: Invisible, Inc.

Adam: Invisible, Inc. [official site] is a turn-based stealth game and there is absolutely no reason why turn-based stealth should be a thing that works as well as this does. It is also has procedurally generated tactical cyberpunk environments, which should be occasionally confusing and a pain in the backside but are almost always indistinguishable from hand-crafted puzzles latent with drama and tension. It's both…

Game of the Month: June – Invisible, Inc.

Magazines have front covers, RPS has Game Of The Month. It's our attempt at whittling down the thick backlog of videogames growing around you into a single, manageable game. The one game you should play if you've only time to play one game in the month of June. The one game you must play, even if you have no time to play games at all,…

The Best GTA 5 Mods: Drive Trains, Be Police And More

Yes, alright, well done Rockstar. You've made a massive open world filled with dozens of scripted stories, activities ranging from deep sea diving to golfing, plus UFOs to summon, cars to tow, and much more. Sure, fine. But where's the ability to fly? Where are the telekinetic powers? Where's the mode that causes all the pedestrians to become psychotically violent and armed to the teeth?…

GTA 5 Pedestrian Riot Mod Is A Laugh Riot

Yesterday I wrote about and made a video of the Vehicle Cannon mod for Grand Theft Auto V [official site]. Today I decided I'd try out the pedestrian riot mod, which replicates a cheat from an old version of GTA by having angry pedestrians spawn with machineguns and rocket launchers and begin to fight you and each other. There's a new video below - and,…

GTA V Vehicle Cannon Mod Adds A Gun That Fires Cars

There was a time, before mod tools were robust and modding came with a chance of career improvement, when mods were frivolous little things. That's what the lack of official modding support in Grand Theft Auto V [official site] brings back. The ability to make sweeping changes to the world of Los Santos may yet arrive, but for now I'm enjoying small scripts that let…

The RPS Verdict: Grand Theft Auto 5

Grand Theft Auto V [official site] is our Game of the Month for May. To steal its jewels and show them to you, a crack team of criminals - Adam, Alice, Pip and Graham - gathered inside the RPS safehouse to gaze over the blueprints, outline their crimes, and discuss how much they like driving within the speed limit. Graham: I am wondering: how do…

Game of the Month: May – Grand Theft Auto 5

We live in a land of plenty, in which the bountiful supply of videogames to play can feel like a gift in one moment and a suffocating deluge in the next. That's what Game Of The Month is for. Each month, we'll pick one game that we think you should play if you have time for just one game. Then we'll write a flurry of…

Building A Self-Sufficient City In Cities: Skylines – Part Two

Welcome to the second instalment of my attempt to recreate an arcology in Cities: Skylines. As those of you who read the first part will know, I'm not talking about the bubble-topped utopia palaces of SimCity 2000 - I'm talking about a real arcology in the real world. Like Masdar City. Masdar City is a sustainable, self-contained settlement under construction in the desert south-west of…

Building A Self-Sufficient City In Cities: Skylines – Part One

Cities: Skylines [official site] is our RPS Game Of The Month for April. As part of our month of coverage, we asked Duncan Geere to build an arcology in the game. This is his attempt. Arcologies are pretty awesome, as town planning concepts go. The towering, fishbowl-topped edifices that seasoned gamers will recognise from SimCity 2000 were one of that game's most beloved features, but…

A Cities Skylines Succession Diary Part 3 – Firefighting

The penultimate part of a series in which three players take it in turns to manage and build up one Cities: Skylines settlement, passing the savefile onto the next person whenever the city levels up. Joining me in this endeavour are Jonathan Shipley and Dan Corns. This time: roads, garbage truck gridlock, smell refutation and New New Dansville.

Continuing a series in which players take it in turns to manage and build up one Cities: Skylines settlement, passing the savefile onto the next person whenever the city levels up. Joining me in this endeavour are Jonathan Shipley and Dan Corns. When last we left you, we foretold an apocalypse. Here's how The Brown Plague took 1,600 lives and very nearly killed the entire…

A Cities: Skylines Succession Diary, Part 1: Crimewave

Cities: Skylines is great and all, but I must confess to being hamstrung by my imagination, or lack thereof. Once I've unlocked everything there is to build, I kind of run out of steam, because I don't have a designer's mind and complicated road systems scare me. But a friend, also playing the game and experiencing similar handicaps, had an idea: a succession game in…

Feature: We Built This City

The RPS Verdict – Cities: Skylines

A floating speech bubble appears over Videogame City, signalling that the citizens are demanding something. Clicking on it reveals the source of problem: "Not enough good city builders." It seems all that have been built so far are poorly connected to the (road) network, too small to cater to the growing population, and otherwise stocked too poorly with what people want. Best construct Cities: Skylines…
