Wasteland 3 is out now, InXile’s latest post-apocalyptic RPG

InXile Entertainment's latest adventure in the post-apocalyptic lands of the USA, Wasteland 3, came out today, bringing with it a big bizarre statue of a robo-Ronald Reagan. The RPG will have you fill the boots of a lone Ranger, tasked with reestablishing society in the wastes of Colorado. It's a bit like old school Fallout, what with being a story-driven RPG full of turn-based tactical…

Wasteland 3 review

It’s a big boy, gunslingers, but not a great boy. Wasteland 3 is okay, passable, middling. It should be commended for its sheer heft, its days-long bulkiness no doubt welcome in the face of our own ongoing apocalypse, but that doesn’t make its writing any less puerile, nor its combat any less uninspired. For some, this in-jokey game of tactics and chin-wagging will fill a…

Wasteland 3’s new co-op trailer is playing sides and stealing clothes

It's dangerous out there, dontcha know? Better to go through Wasteland 3 with company, I reckon. Ahead of next week's launch, a new trailer for InXile's frozen apocalypse invites you to bring a buddy along for the ride. Mind, you mind want to make sure they're a real pal before they stab you in the back, make friends with all your enemies, and swap your…

Wasteland 3 shows off new conversations and the cult of God-President Reagan

Like most post-apocalyptic romps, Wasteland 3's badlands weren't entirely emptied by the end of the world. Speaking in a developer diary this week, studio head Brian Fargo and senior writer Nathan Long ran through bodyguards, crime-lords and presidential death cults the Rangers might face during their upcoming Colorado road trip - and the new conversation system that'll get you right up in their irradiated faces.

Classic apocalypse RPG Wasteland Remastered is out now

The original Wasteland hails from the 80s—those rose-colored years before RPGs set in the nuclear apocalypse were an entire genre of their own. Wasteland Remastered is almost (almost) an entire do-over with dramatically updated graphics and some ancient bug fixes. InXile proclaim that Wasteland and the remaster are "punishing" as old RPGs are wont to be. The remaster is out as of yesterday, so you…

Wasteland Remastered gets itself a February release date

Post-apocalyptic RPG Wasteland Remastered - which just looks a Wasteland remake let's be honest - has bagged itself a release date, so you'll be able to get your hands on it on February 15th. InXile Entertainment’s remaster was announced back in June 2018, and it's essentially a big old re-do of everything from the original 1988 game, with all-new audio and graphics.

Wasteland 3 coming in May with a robotic Ronald Reagan

I thought the post-apocalyptic horrors of Wasteland 3 couldn't surprise me but goodness me, I'm chilled to the core. I've seen all the usual torments--nuclear winter, cannibalism, slavery, torture, famine--but I was not prepared for the sight of a giant robotic Ronald Reagan. My god, what have we done? We must change our ways before it's too late. We can't let this vision become reality.…

The Bard’s Tale IV polished and expanded in new Director’s Cut

Our former John (RPS in peace) declared The Bard's Tale IV to be "a shoddy old mess burying some nice ideas" after it launched in September 2018. Faint praise indeed for InXile Entertainment's revival of the fantasy RPG series. Just under one year later, InXile have relaunched the game as a "Director's Cut" with a big load of bug fixes, tweaks, new places to plunder,…

Chill with Wasteland 3’s new, snow-caked trailer

It didn’t seem all that long ago that a new Wasteland game was nothing but a distant dream, but now we’re here at the third game in the series. InXile’s newest tactical RPG is set away from the dusty deserts of Arizona, and takes in you into the mountains, beckoned there by the Patriarch of Colorado. Here he is, being all portentous and grey, begging…

The Bard’s Tale IV: Director’s Cut tries to puzzle it out again on August 27th

Whatever your feelings on The Bard's Tale IV: Barrow's Deep (and opinions were all over the place), you can't deny that InXile's puzzle-heavy RPG could have used a couple more months in the oven. Probably for the best, then, that they're relaunching it next month. Due on August 27th (and as a free upgrade to anyone with the original release), the Director's Cut was once…

Wasteland remaster looks a whole lot like a remake, and I’m not complaining

The Wasteland is a lawless place, son. We don't have time for fun and games, and we especially don't have time to worry about stretching everyday industry vernacular to its absolute limits. InXile Entertainment's remaster of the original Wasteland - which was announced back in June 2018 - seem have locked the word 'remaster' in a barrel of nuclear waste for a few decades, rubbing…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Have You Played… Torment: Tides Of Numenera?

Torment: Tides Of Numenera is apparently a 'thematic successor' to Planescape: Torment, which, as descriptors go, is even more woolly than 'spiritual successor'. Translated into jargon talk, this is a single-player RPG with an isometric perspective, set in a part-fantasy part-steampunk universe, and it's so story driven that it's basically like reading a book.

The Bard’s Tale IV adds free saving, old-school grid movement, old heroes and more

Whether you appreciated its fresh approach or loathed the concepts behind The Bard's Tale 4, it's hard to deny that the revival of the ancient RPG series needed a few more months in the oven. Today's big ol' patch, which developers inXile are calling the Second Sight Update, smooths over some of the bigger cracks in its pseudo-old-school facade. For the good of everyone, you…

Microsoft acquires RPG studios Obsidian Entertainment and inXile

Microsoft have once again added to the fleet of studios under their wing, this time acquiring Obsidian Entertainment, the studio behind games like Fallout: New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity, and inXile, who created Wasteland 2 and The Bard’s Tale IV. Both studios put out videos talking about how exciting this all is, and promising that yes, they’ll still be making the kind of RPGs…

The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep is a shoddy old mess burying some nice ideas

Are you nostalgic for The Bard's Tale? I certainly played them back between 1985 and 1988, but being under 10, that was a very long time ago. I don't really remember them with any special degree of affection. And I'm certainly free of the peculiar reverence of those for whom such cows are too sacred to criticise even the decades-later follow-ups (subtweet). What I've been…

The Bard’s Tale IV is out now

Looking at screenshots of The Bard's Tale IV: Barrows Deep, it seems a crying shame that it's not a game about a metal band putting on a rockin' good show to get the mosh pit fired up. Sadly, the game inXile Entertainment released today is just an olde schoole turn-based RPG - and one that our John tells me is a bit bum. He'll have…

Gather your party like it’s 1985 – The Bard’s Tale Trilogy’s first remaster is out now

Interplay's original Bard's Tale trilogy was a little before my time. With the first game launching in 1985, when I was two years old, I wasn't quite ready to crunch numbers and map my own dungeons. Maybe today's remastered release of The Bard's Tale Trilogy will help me fill in some of the blanks in time for the release of inXile's The Bards Tale 4 on September 18th.…
