I Hate Indie Games!

I don't hate indie games. But just so you understand the true nature of PC Gamer's most recent Devil's Advocate, I direct you to look at the title. Devil's Advocate. It's the column in which I argued graphics are more important than gameplay, and games should be harder, more boring, and free of violence. You know, I was being a Devil's Advocate. DO YOU SEE?…

Age Of Conan: PC Gamer Preview

Dear me, a few days ago the fine-feathered folks at PC Gamer put my preview of Age Of Conan on their website and I didn't notice. That's being remedied RIGHT NOW.Be tantalised by this excerpt, and read the rest here:Six months ago, Conan looked to be in a spot of bother. The beta began, and the players let out a unified "Erk". The problem? The…

PC Gamer Goes To War

PC Gamer's Tim Edwards, a top-chum and occasional employer of the RPS hivemind, wasn't terribly happy about Greg Costikyan's controversial assertion that a game review is a different, lesser beast to game criticism - a nobler species Costikyan claims barely exists. So he's posted a riposte on the PC Gamer blog.It includes stuff like this: Greg's is a purely semantic argument based around trying to…

Kwari: PC Gamer Review

Every now and then when the handsome folk at PC Gamer aren't feeling handsome enough, they put up one of my reviews. It's approximately a 34% increase in handsome. Today they're buffing up with my review of online money-spending opportunity, Kwari. It begins very much like this:Games traditionally work like this: you buy it, you install it, and then you play it as much as…

Lone Gunmen

PC Gamer's Craig Pearson happened upon an interesting question. Why is it when you're browsing for servers to play your bestest online FPS, there are so many with just one player sat in them? Craig decided to find out, and has published the results of this hard-hitting investigative journalism on the PCG blog.Craig: Hello. Can I ask you a question? Gunneri SGT Hartman killed Craig…

In Soviet Russia, Tiberium Harvests You

Comrades, rejoice! Yes, the next in the Command & Conquer series will indeed be Red Alert 3. Which we pretty much knew. (In fact, did kinda know. Just couldn't say so before without raining down death and destruction upon ourselves, infuriatingly. One day, RPS will have its Woodward and Bernstein moment, but "inevitable RTS sequel inevitably announced" was not it).

PC Gamer Speyrer Interview

The handsome fellows at PC Gamer have posted my interview with David Speyrer - project lead on Half-Life 2: Episode Two - up on their website. You may remember a few weeks back we posted the bits that were left over. Well, here's the cream of the interview for your eye-based enjoyment.Illustrative excerpt:That seems like quite an achievement. Companions tend to be infuriating. How did…

PCG: Co-op? Sling your hook.

When I was last in the Gamer office, they caught me in a - Dwarf Fortress Mode on - fey mood. Guiding me towards a keyboard, it ended in another rant where I continue the last seven-days theme of asking the entire internet outside, as I think they spilt my pint. It's about how the current wave of co-op games isn't exactly the unvarnished joy…

Stranglehold – PC Gamer Review

The fine folks at PCG have added my recent review of Stranglehold to their online cauldron. Using your eyes, you can read it after clicking on the text below.Here's cool: slow motion diving through the air, pistol in each hand, taking out all 15 baddies in the room. There's no denying this. Now do it sliding down a bannister, riding belly-first on a trolley, or…

Stalker Stalker (That’s me.)

My continuing unhealthy interest in GSC Gameworld's apocalyptic FPS from earlier this year reaches a climax over at PC Gamer UK's website, with a three part feature originally published in the magazine. Read the three parts here, here, and here. Or, conveniently, read the first part and then follow the links built into those very pages. Clever, eh?The feature covers the inspiration of the game…

Medal of Honor: Airborne – PC Gamer Review

Our roving, investigative, and surprisingly tall reporter Quintin Smith has reviewed Medal of Honor: Airborne for PC Gamer, and it's gone up on their site.I link it because, well, it's one of the best written reviews I've read in ages. And the game's rather fun too. "I responded by throwing all my grenades in random directions and leaping behind a piece of cover that turned…

PC Gamer knows how you will die

If Walker's easily prone to tears, my own emotional foible is being governed by extreme worry. Paranoia, even. This may be evident by the occasional panic in this feature I wrote a while back for PC Gamer UK, which has just been lobbed online. 'Are Games Killing Us?' is the question it poses. "Yes, but slowly and horribly" is the reasonably inevitable answer. For a…

In with a bullet at number 57: Outcast

PC Gamer have lobbed their annual Top 100 Games EVER online and... no, don't groan, at least too much. PC Gamer have been doing this Top 100 every year for over a decade, before the actual list-malaise took over our whole society (Personally, I want to do an article which lists the Top 100 Top 100s ever). Since it's actually a yearly event, it tends…
