Butchering Pathologic – Part 3: The Soul

[Following on from the first two parts, this is the grand finale of Quinns' evisceration of the game Walker described as "Oblivion with Cancer". As a compliment. Lots of spoilers, but you should read it anyway.] Butchering Pathologic Part III: The Soul There are two themes that run through Pathologic like a couple of sharks lurking in a swimming pool. By themes I mean something…

Butchering Pathologic – Part 2: The Mind

[Following on from yesterday's installment, Quinns continues his examination of the award winning Russian obscurity Pathologic. Spoilers abound. Oh - and if all this has tempted you, it turns out it is available as a digital download from GamersGate.] Butchering Pathologic Part II: The Mind In a single word, Pathologic is dark. And not "we're going to make our sequel a darker, more adult experience"…

They Aren’t Trying

RPS-roving reporter Quinns has been crying over this, so I have to share. It's the first footage for THEY (Whose name doesn't appear to actually have capital letters in any of the press we can find, but seems to demand it), being developed by Metropolis Software who you may know from the incredibly lovely, no really, honest, Aurora Rising. Here's the trailer. To avoid spoiling…

The Right To Bear Arms +4

[First of our SPECIAL GUEST posts by friends of Rock, Paper, Shotgun. This time it's world-traveler and local-bemuser Quintin Smith, who I once spurred into hitting on girls in the manner of an Oblivion conversation. No, really.] There's a degree of masochism involved in playing roguelikes. As well as choosing to suffer through hideous tile-based graphics and razor-sharp difficulty spikes you have to deal with…
