Boo! Rusty Lake release Cube Escape: Paradox and short film

I'm calling it: Halloween seasons starts now. I've just hung a spooky lantern in the hallway and the spooky-ooky Rusty Lake gang today released not only a new altogether kooky adventure game but a live-action short film too. Ghost time is go. Cube Escape: Paradox is out now, offering its first chapter free so we can all try on the shoes of a detective trapped…

Weird: Life Is Strange Live-Action Series Announced

The fab time-travelling teen drama Life Is Strange [official site] is to become a live-action television series, Square Enix announced today. Or whatever it is we're supposed to call television shows made for cybernet screens. A "digital series", they say. Netflix or something, perhaps? We don't know who what where when - or why, really - but we do know Squeenix have partnered with Legendary's…

It seems to be trying to pitch the game as a brutal look at the oppression of a people, rather than running around inside your own DNA, jumping off trees and murdering…

Real Life Dragon: Skyrim Live Action Trailer

At RPS we absolutely cannot fathom the purpose of live action videos. It's like a new movie advertising itself as a theatre performance, or BBC 1 trailing the new series of Strictly Dr Who Lottery as a book. Games are made of game, not film. But, still the nonsense continues, and the latest is an incredibly high-value production for Skyrim, featuring live-action dragons.

Augmentation Bad? Deus Ex: HR Trailer

We're not always enormous fans of live action trailers at RPS. Unless the game is somehow going to be live action, it seems a touch irrelevant. And then I stop and think, actually, how is that any different from a CGI trailer? Then I realise it isn't, and I say sorry to everyone. However, there's really no justification for snarling at Square Enix for releasing…
