Fallout: New Vega’s director celebrated its 10th birthday with a charity stream

Fallout: New Vegas celebrated its 10th birthday last week. Can you believe the best Fallout game came out on October 19th 2010? 2010! To honour an entire decade of Obsidian's brilliant-but-buggy RPG, the game's director Josh Sawyer did a couple of charity streams to raise money for the California Wildlife Relief Fund. Over the weekend, he managed to raise just under $24,000 (around £18,000) for…

The Outer Worlds is now on Steam and GOG

After a year of Epixclusivity [correction: oh god, and the Microsoft Store, I forgot], The Outer Worlds today launches on Steam and GOG. Obsidian Entertainment's sci-fi FPS-RPG feels a whole lot like a return to their days of Fallout: New Vegas, but in space. If you've been waiting for it to land on a store you like more, here you go. Or if you've been…

Fallout 4’s New Vegas remake mod saddles up for a slick new trailer

If I remember correctly, one of the bigger complaints against Fallout 4 on release was that it wasn't Fallout: New Vegas. Obsidian's spin-off is seen by many as the series' last stab at proper, old-school RPG'ing before Bethesda turned the post-apocalypse into a playful sandbox. Naturally, a group of modders have been hard at work bringing New Vegas' guns 'n' graphics up to date with…

The Outer Worlds touches down on Steam this month

After a year of blasting its way around The Epic Games system, Obsidian's Fallout-lite sci-fi romp is preparing to mosey on into Steam's parlour in just under two weeks.After all, what better place for a tale of unchecked capitalism run amok than Valve's brutally competitive storefront?

The Outer Worlds expansion Peril On Gorgon is out now

The Outer... Worlds? Worlds. The Outer Worlds has today released its first expansion, Peril On Gorgon, a title which feels like it needs a campy exclamation mark. It's the first of two narrative expansions, and set in an asteroid colony where Science has done a Bad. It also brings a couple of new weapons and armour sets, some new music, new perks and flaws, and…

Here’s 11 minutes of The Outer Worlds’ first story expansion

As you can bet based on the title, Peril On Gorgon will dunk you into…

How Obsidian made tiny survival fun in Grounded

As we all know at this point, I am a big fan of the ants in Obsidian's new early access survival game Grounded. But the ants aren't the only thing I ask about when I interview Obsidian's Adam Brennecke, the game's lead designer.In Grounded you play as a child, or group of children working together, who has been mysteriously shrunk down so that a normal…

A day in the life of Grounded’s ants: Obsidian talk eggs, pheromones and their incoming queen

It's been less than a month since ant-bothering shrinky garden survival game Grounded entered early access, but in the current era, three weeks could mean anything between a day and four hundred years. In any case, I'm rather fond of the game, and have attacked my own friends for daring to menace its ants, as warned. So you can probably imagine how excited I got…

This huge Fallout: New Vegas mod replaces 145 NPC voices with new actors

If you've played Fallout: New Vegas a handful of times you've almost certainly done a double take once or twice when you recognise the voice of a character. Wait, didn't I meet you already? You had a different face then. The voice talent in New Vegas can be spread a bit thin at times, with some actors portraying quite a few characters. This overhaul mod…

Grounded Quartzite: where to find Quartzite and what you can do with it

Quartzite is a fairly important resource in Grounded, and one which has eluded a great many players during their first ventures into this fascinating survival game. In this guide, we'll reveal all the locations we've discovered where you can mine Quartzite in Grounded, along with what you can use it for once you have it.

That Facebook group where people pretend to be ants loves Grounded

You have possibly already heard about the Facebook group called "A group where we all pretend to be ants in an ant colony". Statistically speaking, it is likely that some of you are members. It prompted many slightly bemused articles around May and April of this year, as outlets like Buzzfeed tried to parse what it was and why over a million and a half…

Grounded’s co-op is fantastic, if you can get it to work

I threw a spear at the first person to harm an ant. They were warned. But the lag meant I kept missing and it just got a bit embarassing, so we retrieved the spears and went back to scouting for dewdrops.Grounded's multiplayer has captured something special. Even after several hours (which flew by for all of us), we found it hard to pin down exactly…

I am willing to die for the ants in Grounded

Ants are a strong contender for the most fascinating creature on the planet. Arguably the most successful animal (discounting micro-organisms, those smug jerks), even. I was fascinated by them as a kid. There's an ant with only one pair of chromosomes. There are ants that transform themselves into food storage units. There are kamikaze ants that defend their nest by exploding. Blind ants. Ants that…

Help us continue to be horrible in space in The Outer Worlds

After posing the question ‘who actually takes the evil path in games?’ I was surprised to see the answer is ‘most RPS readers, actually’. I’m not sure if this speaks more to my delightful innocence or your inherent gitishness. Either way, Colm and I (your RPS Vid Buds) continue to step out of our comfort zone as we pursue the nastiest outcomes in The Outer…

Obsidian's Honey I Shrunk The Kids-like, Grounded, releases in early access at around 6pm BST, inviting you to make spears out of twigs and create armour from the carcasses of your buggy foes.

Outer Wilds writer has now written for The Outer Worlds, so I’ll never get the names right

For the past two years, I have confused the name Outer Wilds with The Outer Worlds. I will say one space game's name when I mean the other. I will expand one name into 'The Outer Wilds' and trim the other to 'Outer Worlds'. I will trip and combined the two into 'Outer Woilds'. I hate this. AND NOW, Outer Wilds writer Kelsey Beachum has…

The Outer Worlds goes sleuthing with Peril On Gorgon this September

From my understanding of Greek myths, you're not supposed to look directly at a Gorgon. That doesn't seem to be how The Outer Worlds' tales work, then, because there's a bloody asteroid of the same name that's crawling with baddies. Arriving this September, Peril On Gorgon brings in a whole new world full of conspiracies, subterfuge and good ol' fashioned gunfights in The Outer Worlds'…
