The Top Best Bestest Games Of 2017 So Far

2017 has already been an extraordinary year for PC games, from both big-name AAA successes to no-name surprise indie smashes. Keeping up with so much that’s worth playing is a tough job, but we’ve got your back. Here is a collection of the games that have rocked the RPS Treehouse so far this year.

We’ve all picked our favourites, and present them here in alphabetical order so as not to start any fights. You’re bound to have a game you’d have wanted to see on the list, so please do add it to the comments below. Read the rest of this entry »

Best PC gaming deals of the week

Another week has gone by and with it came the news of Destiny 2, a Witcher TV show and a whole stack of new gaming deals to check out. Conveniently enough, I’m here to take a closer look at that last thing and it’s about the only thing that’s keeping me from playing more Prey. Without further hesitation, let’s go ahead and check out what’s on offer this week, shall we?

As usual, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. Let’s get started.

Resident Evil 7’s free story DLC delayed

The free Resident Evil 7 [official site] story DLC ‘Not A Hero’ is delayed, Capcom have announced. The end of RE7 teased that Not A Hero would arrive in spring 2017, but now it won’t. Capcom say it wasn’t shaping up as good as the rest of the (great) game but they want it to be, so they’ll work on it a while longer. No firm word yet on when it will arrive. For the benefit of folks who’ve not yet played RE7, I’ll not say much about Not A Hero before the cut. Speaking of… Read the rest of this entry »

Resident Evil 7’s DLC returns to the best of Resi 7

I’ll avoid open spoilers here (you can find those, and our thoughts on them, here, if you’re so minded), but suffice it to say that the final act of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] is not the equal of the claustrophobic cat and mouse chase/escape room mash-up that makes the rest of the game such a terrifying triumph. It is, then, a relief to find that the first two rounds of DLC, now available on PC after temporary PlayStation imprisonment, broadly mark a return to what made the Baker house such a successful reinvention of the Resi formula.

Resident Evil 7 serves Banned Footage DLCs on PC today

Two ghostloads of new scares arrive in Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] today with the launch of the ‘Banned Footage’ DLC packs. Each adds a mish-mash of new story bits and modes, from escaping a room while in the watchful care of a cannibal to betting your fingers in a Saw-like game of Blackjack. Awful. These DLC packs have been out on PlayStation 4 for a bit because of exclusivity shenanigans but hey, this means I got to live a bit longer without seeing that awful Blackjack. Warning: it is awful. However, the monster wearing a jaunty hat is great. Swings and roundabouts. Read the rest of this entry »

Steam Charts: Conangratulations

‘Til all are one, it’s only the weekly Steam charts! These are the ten games which sold best on Steam last week.

It’s one of those ‘just copied and pasted all the HTML from last week’ kind of weeks. This is GOOD because I am lazy but BAD because there is little new to say. Fortunately, I’ve brought a friend along with me this time.

Compucrypts: Resident Evil 7 now supports older CPUs

Resident Evil 7 [official site] is a spooky-ooky good time, our Adam will tell you, but some would-be players suffered a f-f-fearul f-f-f-fright discovering their CPU was unexpectedly unable to run it. Good news, oldboxers! If your PC creaks like a spookhouse, crawling with cobwebs and powered by a CPU which doesn’t support SSSE3 SIMD, you can now (potentially) play RE7 as Capcom have released a wee patch yesterday which changed that and nothing else. Short and sweet. Ghostboxes now welcome. Read the rest of this entry »
