Spyro Reignited Trilogy brings the classic console mascot to PC today

PC never really had a mascot, did it? I suppose you could say the Doom guy, but he's running on everything from toasters to oscilloscopes. Hardly loyal. That Crysis lad? Nah, even Xbox had a more recognisable sci-fi army guy. We've never had anything like Mario or Sonic on the home computer but worry not. It's 2019. Exclusivity is theft. We're stealing our mascots, starting…

Spyro Reignited Trilogy is PC-bound says Taiwanese Rating Committee

The lovely Spyro Reignited Trilogy - a remake bundle of Insomniac's three Spyro The Dragon games - is headed to PC, if the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee aren't fibbing to us. Spotted by the ever-eastward-looking Gematsu, the listing even includes preliminary box art, featuring the logo for Iron Galaxy, who previously brought the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy to PC. It would seem that our…

Crash Bandicoot’s N. Sane remaster trilogy is out on PC

I am apparently the sole person in the RPS Treehouse who hasn't played any Crash Bandicoot games, allowing me to be intrigued by today's release of the remastered N. Sane trilogy. This three-in-one bundle gives a modern-day lick of paint to the eponymous marsupial's '90s PlayStation mascot platformer series, originally developed by Naughty Dog. While first slated for a July release, Crash has been taking notes from the speedrunning community (whom…

Extinction is out now (for a silly amount of £, $, €)

Gargoyle-grappling action game Extinction is out now, offering large cities infested with muscular orc-a-likes and colossal ogres. It’s a bit like Attack on Titan, except the biologically exposed anime giants are replaced by armour-wearing big boys with sharp teeth and pointy ears. There’s a story campaign about saving civilians and beating back the Ravenii, as the baddies are called, alongside an “extinction mode” in which…

Extinction trailer shows off its swish combat

Extinction is what happens when you take the thrilling, lightly traumatising anime Attack on Titan and remove the unsettling weirdness of its giant naked men, in favour of genero-ogres wearing tasteful loincloths. That's a bit of a shame, but the game they're starring in has me a mite more interested than the Dynasty Warriors re-skin that was the official tie-in Titan game. It's mostly down…

Giant-slaying action-RPG Extinction stomps out on April 10th

Extinction is Iron Galaxy's action-RPG that asks "what would it look like if a race of giant alien ogres invaded the earth, and the only thing that could stop them was a bloke with a flaming sword and a grappling whip?" The answer: pretty darn cool. I won't get to do any giant-slaying myself until the game comes out on April 10th, so for the…

Scale, prune and decapitate gigantic ogres in Extinction

A desperate human race pushed to the brink of extinction. Enormous man-eating giants loom just outside the massive walls of the last surviving cities, and their only weakness is decapitation, or at least a sharp blade across the nape of their neck. Such death-blows can only be delivered by high-flying, acrobatic, sword-wielding warriors - our species' last line of defence. No, it's not Attack On…

Killer Instinct punches onto Steam and Windows 7

Monstrous pugilists including aliens, cyborgs, a mummy, a velociraptor, and a bona fide Battle Toad throw down in Killer Instinct [official site], a revival of the '90s fighting game series. It first hit PC last year but was exclusive to Windows 10 and its store, which is always a bit of a downer. Now folks who use Windows 7 or prefer Steam can now join…

Feature: It takes all sports

Have You Played… VIDEOBALL?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. VIDEOBALL is no Rocket League, but it is a pretty neat take on multiplayer ball-wrangling, breaking down various rulesets to make a game that is just sort of Sport rather than any particular sport.

Killer Instinct Has Arrived On PC, ‘Part Roguelike’ Solo Mode Coming Soon

Killer Instinct [official site], which originally appeared as an Xbox One launch title, has arrived on PC. It's in the Windows Store and is free-to-play but will only work if your PC is running Windows 10. Any purchases you've made on the Xbox version will carry across if you download the game on PC - those purchases are mainly characters, only one of the roster…

Bif! Pow! Killer Instinct Hits Windows 10 This Month

Microsoft have announced that free-to-play fighting game Killer Instinct [official site] will make the jumpkick from Xbox One to Windows on March 29th. It's been out on the black box since 2013, and this will support cross-platform multiplayer so folks on PC and Xbone can duff each other up. The Windows 10 release (yes, in the Windows Store) will come alongside the launch of Killer…

Nidhogg’s Fencer Saunters Into Divekick, Sword And All

Bringing a sword to a kickfight seems unsporting, but I'm not sure what a fighting tournament would expect when inviting a warrior who wants nothing more than to be devoured by a giant serpent. The fantastic Nidhogg's Fencer has arrived in Divekick [official site], bringing their big pixel style and flingable sword to the two-button fighting game (guess what those two buttons do). The Fencer…

Rocksteady Fess Up To Unsteady Arkham Knight PC

Batman: Arkham Kerniggut [official site] is, by all accounts, a pretty good videogame with a pretty shonky PC port. Everyone on RPS who's tried it has had framerate issues of varying degrees - I think I got off lightest, but my FPS is still all over the place to the extent that I'll probably shelve it and wait for a patch or driver update -…

Killer Instinct On Win 10 With Cross-Platform Multiplayer

'90s fighting game Killer Instinct [official site] returned on Xbox One in 2013, through (I imagine) some combination of nostalgia and Microsoft wanting a fighting game series then realising they owned one through Rare. Now the monsters 'n' magic men punch 'em up revival is headed towards PC for Windows 10. "We don't have any more to share at this time" said the terse announcement…

Feature: Kickdive! No, wait!

Impressions: Divekick

Divekick is the simplest game you'll ever play. Setting two opposing characters against one another with the same ability, there's little to learn. There's no direct control of left/right movement, one button jumps, the other performs the titular maneouvre (thus moving forward) or leaps you backwards if grounded. Each impact with an opposing player is an instant KO and the first to five wins the…
