On The Record: GFWD(ead Rising)

I received review code for Dead Rising 2: Off the Record last week and was hoping to bring you hilarious tales of my attempts to photographically document a localised zombie apocalypse while wearing naught but spandex and a comedy hat. There would have been a bit with me riding a tricycle and shooting a water pistol at a horde of reanimated corpses and another bit…

Bulletstorm Demo Bothers Showing Up

Better late than never? Bulletstorm has finally released its PC demo, which is perhaps a tad late to make up for the bad blood over its previous cancellation, but presumably still within plenty of time to convince the doubters to take a look. Quintin loved it when he reviewed it, and Kieron, Quintin and I had a good old chat about it here. You can…

On The Rocks: Games For Windows Live

Microsoft has today announced that they plan to improve Games For Windows Live. In fact, speaking to CVG, senior-producer-of-Microsoft's-interactive-entertainment-business, Kevin Unangst admitted that "we had a rocky start." This apparent act of humility is being widely reported as Microsoft's admitting GFWL's faults, and planning to address them. But is it?

Gearbox Confuse Me

So here's a thing, and it's honestly got me confused. Gearbox's Steve Gibson has been talking to the London Games Festival blog about the various Gearbox projects (but mainly about Duke), and when talking about Steam he says...

Games For Windows Live Relaunches, Again

Nothing brightens up a PC gamer's day like news about Games For Windows Live. If Microsoft revealed they were going to harvest every person on Earth's left eyeball, we'd probably still not be as pissed off as we are about the continue existence of their unreliable, unnecessary bloatware - which a frightening number of ignorant publishers and developers are still insisting on tacking onto their…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Multi-Kill

Big news over at SavyGamer folks. I've done a complete site redesign, and it is no longer ugly. Hooray! In terms of functionality, there is now categorised RSS feeds, so if you want to just follow the PC bargains, there is a separate feed for that. Enough shameless self promotion though, there's bargain bucketeering to be done. Here's your weekly digest of digital diversions.

Dawn Of Update: The Last Stand

Dawn Of War 2's 1.8 update is out [Later today, Jim - RPS], and that includes the new game mode Last Stand. You can check out a video of that mode below, but essentially it's one hero against many waves of enemies. I believe it can be played co-operatively too, so it could be you and chum versus many waves of enemies. The update also…

Stardock’s Wardell Slams GFWL

Speaking to Shacknews, Brad Wardell says: "I started out as a big Games for Windows Live advocate. I intended for Elemental to be on Games for Windows Live, but then as we got closer, the Xbox group took it over more and more. And they have things where, oh, if you want to use Games for Windows Live to update your game, you have to…
