The Wonderful 101: Remastered review

The Wonderful 101 is a breezy, demented action game in which you battle alien invaders as an army of vinyl superheroes who can merge and transform themselves into weapons. Think Pikmin, but Captain Olimar is played by the Green Lantern, and you're tossing around Avengers instead of seedlings. Or to put it more succinctly, a literal “combined arms warfare” game.

The Wonderful 101: Remastered will be coming to PC

The tiny superhero game developed by Platinum Games for the Wii U back in 2013 is getting a remaster. It will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, of course, but Platinum aren't working with Nintendo as a publisher this time around so they've taken to crowdfunding to get The Wonderful 101: Remastered made and have opened up the possibility for bringing the new version to…

Platinum Games receive Tencent investment and promise other “big announcements” this year

Bayonetta and Nier: Automata developers Platinum Games have made a big announcement to start off the year - they've got themselves a partnership investment from Chinese conglomerate Tencent. With this, they might start self-publishing games. That's not all though. The company have even more in store for us in the coming months, including an update on upcoming game Babylon's Fall, and according to Platinum's president…

Babylon’s Fall absolutely looks like a Platinum game

After its moody and information-light announcement at E3 2018, I wasn't sure what to make of Babylon's Fall. I expect slick, stabby, and slightly silly action from PlatinumGames, the makers of Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Vanquish, and Nier: Automata. Yet here was this murky fantasy game being presented like Dark Souls? A new trailer today showed some of the game and oh mate, this…

Nier: Automata Game Of The YoRHa Edition out now, changes very little

Nier: Automata was one of the best games of 2017, and one I recommend wholeheartedly, just so long as anyone playing the PC version grabs the unofficial FAR patch by "Kaldaien". Folks were hoping that today's release of the GOTY  (Game Of The YoRHa) edition of the game would fix that, and include a patch from developers Platinum. Sadly, that's not the case. If you…

Feature: The end is Nier

We don’t deserve this planet, the robots of Nier: Automata do

Warning: Contains spoilers.The first robot to be built in Japan, in 1929, was named Gakutensoku, meaning “learning from the laws of nature”. Its creator, biologist Makoto Nishimura, would later say of his mechanical progeny: “If one considers humans as the children of nature, artificial humans created by the hand of man are thus nature’s grandchildren.” The robot was unveiled at Emperor Hirohito’s ascension ceremony and…

The best Japanese games to play on PC

After spending much of this decade catching up with the rest of the world, the Japanese games industry is truly back, and PC gamers have been reaping the rewards of this renaissance. It’s taken time for Japanese developers and publishers to get on board, especially with consoles and smartphones remaining the dominant gaming platforms in their native country. But as classic console franchises finally make…

The moratorium on Nier: Automata spoilers is over

After 525 days of holding my tongue on Nier: Automata, of cautiously asking "So... what ending did you get?" and giving vague "I like Pascal too" answers so as not to spoil any surprises while wanting to tear my heart out, I'm calling an end to this: the moratorium on spoilers is over. I've avoided talking about Nier: Automata so much that I actually forgot…

Platinum continue their PC streak with Babylon’s Fall

It looks like a scene straight out of Dark Souls; a battered knight lays hunched over as a towering blue armoured figure prepares to finish them off. Then the fallen knight sprouts magical tentacles from their back, tears off their opponent's sword-arm with them and uses it to bisect them, which is a bit less Dark Souls. Announced during Square Enix's E3 showcase, Babylon's Fall…

Feature: Listen to our demands

Podcast: What we want from PC gaming in 2018

BAM. A sound captures your headphones and holds you hostage. It's the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. We've been lying in wait for the past three weeks, consolidating our strength and preparing to kidnap you by the ear canals. "Listen up, 2018!" we shout out from atop this metaphor. "We have a list of demands and we're not releasing this poor listener until you've…

A lesson on the rules of nature from Metal Gear Rising

Following yesterday's Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance post, we have received a number of letters wishing to know more about the "rules of nature" that I--and so many others--shout about any time someone mentions the game. What are these rules? Must we all follow them? Seeing as 2018 is the year of Revengeance, it's only sensible to brush up. Here are the RULES OF NATURE!

Have You Played… Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time.The dawning of a year means a little more of what was once the near-future is now the present. While most games set in 2018 squandered this just-out-of-reach year by simply speculating that sports teams might have slightly different lineups--a shameful lack of vision from PES 2018…

PlatinumGames planning to self-publish a new game of their own

PlatinumGames, the makers of such wonderful games as Bayonetta and Nier: Automata, are looking into making and self-publishing games of their own. While they're not announcing any specific games just yet, Platinum say they invited all staff to pitch ideas and have whittled 70-odd submitted design documents down to two ideas they're focusing on. Yes, their own games are likely to offer the action you'd…

Vanquish patch fixes framerate damage bug

A weird bug in Platinum's bumsliding shooter Vanquish [official site], which made players take more damage if their game ran at a higher framerate, is now fixed. As some handy GIFs demonstrated on Friday, players running Vanquish at 60 frames per second would get hurt more than those at 30fps. Porting house Little Stone Software and publishers Sega acknowledged the issue on Sunday, released a…

Vanquish review

It's my first time with the high-speed bumslides and endless robo-armies of Bayonetta and Nier: Automata dev Platinum's third-person shooter Vanquish [official site], newly released on PC a full seven years after its console versions. I like to think that this means I see it with clear eyes, unclouded either by nostalgia or a predisposition to root for an underappreciated underdog. Of course, it may…

Almost seven years after its console debut, the third-person shooter from Bayonetta and Nier: Automata devs PlatinumGames has finally arrived on PC. It is a good video game. Did I not mention that you can rocketslide and kick robots? Our Alec is bumsliding…

Nier: Automata white screen bug fixed for AMD cards

Nier: Automata [official site] is a wonderful action-RPG plagued, for some, by technical issues. Random crashes, blurry visuals and low frame rates are just a few of the problems players have faced, but those with AMD cards have had it worst. It's been virtually unplayable for some because of a bug turning the screen white, which is pretty inexcusable.AMD have finally got round to addressing…
