There and back again: why RPGs matter more than ever

In a 2019 interview with Retronauts, inXile Entertainment founder Brian Fargo recalled what Interplay hoped to accomplish in Tales Of The Unknown: Part 1, the seminal RPG more commonly referred to by its subtitle: The Bard’s Tale."We were trying to set a mood and build a sense of being there... that there was a world... in our own primitive way," Fargo said. "You started off…

Grounded added a koi pond with swimming spiders

It's time to go swimming with the fishes in Grounded. I don't mean that menacingly, though. Yesterday, Obsidian added a big koi pond to their Honey I Shrunk The Kids-like sandbox, so you can literally go for a little swim with some aquatic lads now.Actually, wait, the pond does sound quite dangerous. "This boss of the pond might only have one good eye, but it…

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…

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.

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 expansion Peril On Gorgon is out now

Feature: Good things, small packages

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…

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.

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…
