Spare A Thought For The IndieFort Bundle

The new IndieFort bundle over at Gamersgate is like a pick and mix stand, allowing purchasers to select three, six or nine games from a selection of 24. Three for £2.49, six for £4.49 or nine for £6.49. There are a few obvious savings, with Telepath RPG: Servants of God and Air Buccaneers valued at £17.95 and £24.95 respectively. There are deals to be had…

Feature: A License That's Brill

Crikey: EU Rules You Can Resell Downloaded Games

Well here's some pretty huge news. The Court Of Justice of the European Union has just ruled that people should be able to resell downloaded games. In an environment where publishers are trying to destroy basic consumer rights like the ability to resell physical products you've paid for, this could be one heck of a turnaround for customers. And that's no matter what it might…

Amanita Sorry To Botanicula Pre-Orders, Give Free Stuff

The decision by Amanita to put out the stunning Botanicula as part of a Humble Bundle on the day of release sounds, at first, like a lovely idea. A brand new game in a pay what you want bundle? Amazing! Except of course for those who pre-ordered it at full price. Personally, I think the $10 it would have cost anyone is a bargain for…

Revenge Of The Bundle: IndieFort

Emergency! Emergency! The world is running out of words to put after 'indie' when coming up with new pay-what-you-want bundle titles. Gamersgate have opted for 'fort' as theirs, with that perhaps unintended sideeffect that when I think IndieFort I picture a castle wearing a checked shirt and some black-framed plastic spectacles. Oh well! The roster of included games is fairly impressive in this one, and…

Orbitron: Revolution Is Out, Rather Circular

Firebase's side-scrolling shooter Orbitron: Revolution has turned up on the personal computer format, over here. It's a fine-looking piece of retromancy, although I am have been playing it and am not fully convinced. While the pace of the Defender-meets-Uridium-on-a-ring sort of play is excellently paced and suitable explody, I found the visuals a bit tricky to read. Perhaps it's down to the game being more…

Huh: Cannon Fodder 3 Released On GamersGate

The Cannon Fodder games are inserted deeply within the Fond Memories Gland of many of the RPS team. It was therefore surprise that we learned that a third Cannon Fodder game would be released in Russia. It is with even more surprise that we discover, via Strategy Informer, that an English version has been released on GamersGate. I've not had a look at it yet,…

Tiling Away The Hours: Carcassonne On PC

Either this was unheralded or I've been listening to the wrong heralds, but Carcassonne is now available from Gamersgate in a rather spiffy looking PC conversion. There has already been a version for your personal computing device, but it was only distributed in Germany and has since been discontinued so it can carry a relatively hefty price tag. This downloadable version is £7.95, or £23.97…

Smash & Grab: Every GTA Game For £8.74

Cripes - how would you like the complete Grand Theft Auto series for under £9? There are two ways to do this. You can get yourself a balaclava and steal them from a shop, but it's high-risk, and some would argue morally questionable. Or you could hand over that much money to Gamers Gate, where they're selling GTA 1, GTA 2, GTA III, GTA: Vice…

A New Suit Of Clothes For GamersGate

The digital distribution wars seem to be very much back on of late, with EA taking the fight to Steam with Origin and both Direct2Drive and Impulse finding themselves with new masters. Then there's the quiet man, Paradox splinter firm GamersGate. It's opted for a different kind of salvo - a redesign. Is it bringing sexy back to PC game download portals? Am I being…

GamersGate FreeGames Beta SignUp

So here's an interesting thing. GamersGate are soon going to be launching an ad-support free gaming service. Details are sketchy at the moment, but there's a big old timer counting down on their site, and a registration form for the beta on the same page. The blurb says: "GamersGate, the premier digital distribution service for games, today announced the launch of FreeGames, a free-to-play ad…

GamersGate Not Too Pricey Either

Steam's not the only place to pick up some gaming bargain's this sales day, by the way. As the extremely peculiar nature of Black Friday starts to leak out of its host country and start affecting the rest of the world that doesn't even have Thanksgiving, we're able to take advantage of the bargains, with none of the serious neck injuries or hurtful comments. And…

Impulse & GamersGate Demand Respect

Some people aren't at all happy about those NPD charts listing the most successful digital distribution services. Those people being, specifically, the bosses of two of the biggest services, which rather oddly didn't make the top five - it instead being dominated by Valve, EA, Blizzard and Direct2Drive. Impulse and Gamersgate think something is rotten in the state of down-chart....

Mega-Bargain Bucket: Steam Goes Sales Mad

Digital distribution's a funny bugger - it's growing ever harder to predict and apply patterns to it. One day, a new videogame from Steam et al is more expensive than its boxed-copy counter-part, then a few weeks later it can be selling for next-to-nothing. The Steam Christmas sale is almost unreal in both the amount and extent of its discounts, and it's going to be…

Digi Retailers Drop Modern Warfare 2

The Big K has news that the major digital download services are boycotting troubled enormo-shooter Modern Warfare 2 because of the inclusion of Valve's Steamworks. Apparently Direct2Drive were first out with the news, saying they had "told publishers that they'd stop selling games bundled in such a manner until Valve "decoupled its retail marketplace" from Steam's other services." GamersGate and Impulse will also be boycotting…

30% Off Painkiller Universe For You Lot

EDIT: I AM STUPID. This is valid from tomorrow, not until tomorrow. Quick post before I rush off into the rain-choked guts of England: don't take this as a thumbs-up for Painkiller, since I don't think the collective opinion of the Hivemind is overly favourable towards this retro-angled shooter - it's deeply old school - but GamersGate nevertheless offered up a discount code for the…

Drive a Volvo For Free

Go joyriding. And if a bout of twocking doesn't appeal, you could be attracted to Gamersgate latest offer. Basically Volvo: The Game is available free to anyone with a Gamersgate account. As mentioned before, it's been developed by SimBin, who you'll know from serious sims like GTR and allows you to drive Volvo cars like Volvo car 1, Volvo car 2 and Volvo car 3.…

GamersGate: Redesigned, Crazy Sales

This is the kind of thing we'd normally leave for LewieP to herd into his weekly Bargain Bucket post, but if we wait to mention it till Sunday, most of the great offers will be gone. So, call this the RPS Bargain Jar or something. Quite a few of you have griped about digital store GamersGate's general design over the past few months, and it…

King’s Bounty No Longer A King’s Bounty (Briefly)

Quick post on this one. News reaches me from staring at forums that King's Bounty is on sale this weekend from Gamer's Gate for twenty Euros. As much as we love the game - it's Alec's favourite of last year, after all - after the cheery collapse of the Pound Sterling, forty Euros is a lot for anything. At twenty it's a total bargain. Hurrah…

The Once and Future King? Majesty returns.

In much welcome news - in our interview, Ex-Civ4 veteran Soren Johnson noted it's a shame a spiritual heir for the game doesn't exist - Paradox Interactive announces a sequel for Majesty, planned for in 2009. Only shame is that original developers Cyberlore aren't involved, which is perhaps predictable, as they don't exist in the same state anymore. Instead, the task falls to 1C: Ino-Co,…
