Geralt may appear in Soul Calibur VI but here are the characters we really want

This is Brendan, broadcasting live from rumour world, where everything is made of a nebulous candy floss-like substance. The locals call it “hope.” Amid this sticky cloud, a figure has formed. It’s Geralt of Rivia, hero of popular Gwent spin-off, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The monster-hunting swordsman will “make an appearance” in another game later this year, according to CD Projekt Red community lead…

Have you played… NEO Scavenger?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. There are lots of things I love about NEO Scavenger [official site]. I love how, despite its lo-fi visuals, it conveys the fickle fortunes and indifferent cruelty of a wilderness better than many technologically superior survival games. I love its ridiculously detailed combat system that lets you…

NEO Scavenger Is Out Now, Hints For “Next Thing”

I spot Adam looking for me in the dark and edge closer. Adam swings blindly and misses. I tackle him to the ground and start kicking. When he passes out, I stop - I wouldn't normally, but he's a friend - and start rumbling around in his pockets. Nothing. I check for a plastic bag and - yes! Inside: the rights to review turn-based, permadeath…

The Bestest Best Combat Of 2014: NEO Scavenger

A lot of games contain an onslaught of right hooks, high kicks and hot lead, but few manage to make each individual encounter with violence meaningful, tense, exciting, important. NEO Scavenger manages to do all of the above through a turn-based RPG with permadeath, and it has offered more memorable fights than any other game this year. Graham: I could happily give every one of…

To My Dying Day: Five NEO Scavenger Stories

All I want to do in life is play NEO Scavenger. In those moments when I'm unable to play, all I want to do is tell other people about NEO Scavenger. It's an RPG in which you flit from scrabbling around abandoned mobile homes in search of the barest necessities of life, to uncovering a complex, well-written, Fallout-style world. As you start it over and…

Epic Fail: What Failing In Games Can Teach Us

I spent half my evenings this week advancing through Advanced Warfare. Call of Duty games are uniformly about forward progression, but some of their most memorable moments comes from points of scripted failure: missing your chance to grab a gun as a Russian soldier in the first Call of Duty, or the nuclear blast in Modern Warfare 1. You learn something about the realities of…

A Fistful Of Gelli Bears: Neo Scavenger Diary #3

Neo Scavenger is one of the best turn-based RPGs I’ve ever played. Although still in Early Access, it has oodles of content and has received several hefty updates since I first played it. As part of Survival Week, I decided to document a single playthrough of the game. No quicksaves, no restarts, no chance. Here’s how I died. The previous parts are here.

NEO Scavenger Update Adds Nasal Allergy, Feeble Crawl

Adam has previously scavenged through the lovely, horrible, turn-based NEO Scavenger, killing a blind man in order to steal one of his shoes in the process. The game has changed a lot since the start of the year though, and one of the largest updates launched last week, introducing new encounters, weapons, recipes locations, a nasal allergy, and a load of bug fixes.

Impressions: Neo Scavenger

It seems like only a few days since the last write-up of an RPG created by former Bioware developers. Neo Scavenger is actually the work of a single man, Dan Fedor, and it’s a less lavish production than The Banner Saga. This is a brutal game about survival in a harsh world. It’s also one of the best single player turn-based RPGs I’ve played for…

Scavenging Angels: NEO Scavenger

This could be the most important thing you read today, unless you're planning to operate dangerous machinery and haven't peeked at the instructions yet. Actually, forget that, this is still more important. That is providing you're the sort of handsome individual who enjoys survival sims, hex-based RPGs, post-apocalyptic scavenging and turn-based everything. If you like any of those delicacies, I have just the thing for…
