The RPS hivemind presents: The most anticipated games of 2019

Wow 2019 is a thing, huh? How are we all doing? Relieved? Bowling a hangover and a nagging sense of trepidation? Maybe you work in retail and, surprise! You were supposed to be at work half an hour ago. Time loses all meaning post-New Year break, doesn't it? You're just sort of adrift in a sea of empty Quality Street wrappers. That's okay. We're all…

Released back in the heady days of 2015, Ori is arguably the pinnacle of the cute-but-crazy-hard platforming genre thanks to its gorgeous world, meticulous platforming and formidable sense of challenge -…

Ori and the Will of the Wisps brings all the feels

Metroid 2 fan remake dev now working on Ori sequel

One year and a day ago, and after a decade of work, one Metroid fan released an unofficial PC remake of Nintendo's Metroid II. AM2R [official site] was its name (Another Metroid 2 Remake), and being pretty great was its game. Alas, Nintendo's lawyers shut AM2R down within days. This was unpleasant but unsurprising. The anniversary of the launch, however, has brought far better news.…

Here's wot I…

Ori And The Blind Forest review

Ori and the Blind Forest [official site] is a beautiful game. That's the first thing you'll notice. The extended intro sequence plays out like a vaguely interactive Studio Ghibli animation as your character - a glowing mouse-like guardian spirit called Ori - is cared for by adopted bear-like parent Naru after she falls into the forest from the Spirit Tree. The animation is luxurious as…
