LEGO The Incredibles finally plods into stores in Europe

LEGO The Incredibles is out today. Again! It landed in America a month ago, but thanks to publisher Warner Bros wanting the game out on the day of the similarly delayed European film release, we're only just getting it now. Someone needs to tell them that the internet has No Oceans. Still, European parents wanting something to play with their sprogs have one more option…

Attack On Titan 2 is kinda almost out

Arm Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man with two giant Stanley knives and you have Attack on Titan, a manga and anime series set in a Renaissance-ish kingdom where spunky teens wielding knives and grappling hooks cut up marauding dopey giants with far too many teeth. It's heavy on the angst and exposition but also a right lark when the warteens swing around cutting giants, and about the…

Mass Effect: Andromeda released, in some countries

Given that hot takes, early access impressions, reviews, and (not very positive) Wot I Thinks have been flying for a week, it feels like Mass Effect: Andromeda [official site] has been out for days. Nope! Today is the official launch day of BioWare Montreal's sci-fi RPG, rolling out through Origin across... certain corners of the world. For some ludicrous reason, the European launch isn't for…

Oceans Recede – EA To Release UK Games On Thursday

It is with a mixture of hope and utter despair that I greet the news from EA that they will be aligning UK releases with the rest of Europe, and putting out new games on a Thursday in RPS's mother isle. Hope, because of what it represents in terms of a major publisher pushing back against the control of retailers. Despair because it's still two…

Fight! BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend On PC

Cor, what a month for fighting games on PC! Last week brought the announcement of a port for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, which'll be the series real PC debut, then yesterday saw the PC release of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend (well, sorta - I'll explain). Next week will bring The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match Final Edition too. You might deduce from…

Fewer Oceans: The Evil Within Bumped Up In Europe

It is quite daft that big publishers still delay international releases of games--coming out on Tuesday in North America, then the Thursday or Friday elsewhere. Here on this wide wonderful web, which has no oceans, it's silly that they artificially stagger releases to appease retailers, especially given that most retail releases nowadays are little more than a Steam key in a box. But it's fine,…

Dragon Age: Inquisition Slips Just A Tiny Bit

Nobody expected the Dragon Age: Inquisition to be released on time. Nrrggh. The originally slated release date for what I imagine BioWare wish they could call Dragon Age 2 was 7th October, but as we all know, the Walker Principle states that original release dates will never be met. The slip, however, is only six weeks, meaning we'll now see the game on the 18th…

GRID Autosport Out Now In America, Europe This Friday

I've played three hours of GRID Autosport and enjoyed every minute of it. I don't know anything about cars; I just liked going fast. From the in-depth interview we did, I know that Codemasters' return to multi-discipline racing aims to blend together the best of the last two games. We'll have a review from a more expert driver than I in the next few days,…

What’s Going On With Lego Marvel’s Mess Of A Release?

If you're in the futuristic megacities of Americaland, you'll likely know that you can buy and play Lego Marvel Super Heroes on Steam right now. You've been able to for a week or so. If you're in, say, Britain, you may not know that you too can't. Except, until recently, you could buy it! Just not play it. It's been fixed now, but for a…

No Oceans, No Clarity, No Sense: AssCreed IV PC Delay

Well, it's finally confirmed, and yup, it turns out that Ubisoft's promises of avoiding delaying the PC build of their games haven't exactly proven, well, true. The PC version of Assassin's Creed IV, as speculated after a developer accidentally blurted the truth, will be released three weeks after the current-gen console versions. It's now getting the same release date as the PS4/Xbox One versions. So…

No Oceans: EU Saints Row IV Has Stupidest Delay Ever

We've long lamented the inanity of delaying EU releases. Archaic systems meant that games were once released on Tuesdays in the States, and Fridays in Europe. And before the oceans between were concreted over, most were in ignorance of the difference. But now, in our contiguous international continent, this gap has become rather problematic. From the blatantly obvious way it encourages piracy ("This game is…

Chocks Away: World Of Warplanes Beta Opens

The skies used to be such a peaceful place: birds, clouds, rain. Then man invented the plane and everything went very wrong. World of Warclouds would be an excellent, relaxing way to spend an afternoon: you scoop up water from the ground, silently stalk around mountains and over airports, building up a tummy rumble to make thunder and lightning. At most you could make things…

Star Trek Out In The States, Slowly Crossing Space Oceans

Star Trek: The Video Game (right now linking to a 404) is out now! Unless you're not in America! Because publishers and stores are still living in 1992! So it is that if you're in the western colonies, you can now buy and play the game and tell us if it's any good. Meanwhile we, in the Mother Country, are stuck with an ironically named…

Er, Where’s Scribblenauts Unlimited Then?

Scribblenauts Unlimited - the fourth game in the magical series - released on PC for the first time this week. Kind of. If you're a North American, you'll see the game available on your Steam account, and indeed the Wii-U version in your stores. But if you're outside of the former colonies, prepare to significantly increase the tax on any tea you might want to…

No Oceans: Dishonored UK “Launch” Trailer Is Cruel

As RPS has long pointed out, staggered international release dates for games may well please high street stores, but they piss off just about everyone else in the world. The archaic, anachronistic notion that a game should come out on Tuesday in the US, and Friday in Europe, was pretty daft when a trip to the shops was the only way to get a game.…

SW:TOR Recognises There Are No Oceans

When twas announced that Star Wars: The Old Republic was releasing on the 22nd December in Europe, people stared at the screen and mumbled, "But... Christmas?" Admittedly it was only slightly louder mumbling than that from America, where the given date was the 20th. An odd choice, presumably trying to capture that elusive, "I hate my family" market, but one that's at least been made…

So, The Space Marine Demo Is Available

Somewhere. I am presuming North American Steam accounts can see it and download it and play it, if they have pre-ordered, due to this post on the main site. The Space Marine page is not visible here in the UK at all. I contacted THQ to ask why that would be quite some time back, but we've yet to get a response. Our guess is…

Region Locking: We Talk To A Lawyer

On Wednesday, we reported that Square-Enix had decided to region lock the physical PC release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, within Europe. Then yesterday, they issued a statement saying that they had decided not to go ahead with the region locking. But what does it all mean? We knew that we didn't like region locking and other artificial barriers between gamers and their games, but…

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Is Region Locked

Oh dear, someone isn't supporting our No Oceans campaign. Square-Enix have sadly region locked the boxed retail versions of the PC release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution across Europe. Retail copies sold in the UK will only activate on UK Steam accounts. It's a similar story for copies sold in Russia/Poland, and the rest of the EU makes up the third European region.

Da Darkness Deux Delayed

If in doubt, alliteration. Don't worry about the terrible harm it might wreak upon the English language - your reward will come in pun-heaven. Or hell. So hard to tell the difference these days. Anyway, just a quickie for you, missus: spooky-tentacle 'em up the Darkness II has been delayed. It's slipping from this October to February 2012.
