What other game should have a spinoff in a totally unlikely genre?

After a brief moment of uncertainty during its first reveal, I had a pretty good feeling that Minecraft Dungeons would be some nice and breezy block-clad fun. Until I'd seen it though, turning Minecraft into Diablo's little brother was not an obvious experiment—at least not to me. What other game series should get a spinoff into some totally unlikely other genre?Minecraft Dungeons isn't out until tomorrow,…

Would you give up your Xbox controller to use the new PS5 DualSense instead?

The Xbox controller long ago became the de facto standard for playing PC games with a pad, but Sony's DualShock 4 also got PC support a long time ago via Steam or a piece of software called DS4Windows. The DS4 a fine controller and I've used it every so often on PC, particularly when dabbling with PlayStation Now, Sony's remote play service on PC. Sony…

RPS asks: turn-based or real-time with pause combat?

Now that we've gotten a proper look at Baldur's Gate 3, the ol' war machines are firing up. Baldur's Gate games from years of yore featured the combat shared by other Infinity Engine games—real time action with the ability to pause and dictate to your party. Baldur's Gate 3, developed by those Larian folks of Divinity: Original Sin 2 fame, will have turn-based combat similar…

No games are being released in February

This February, the videogame industry has conspired to give you the greatest gift of all: time. Time to clear your backlog, time to finish that needle felting project, time to reconnect with those old friends. That's because there are no huge games coming out that month. When did that last happen - and what will you play, while the game release factory sleeps?

RPS Asks: Which Witcher should Netflix Witcher watchers play?

If someone enjoyed Netflix's live-action Witcher series and it made them want to try the games, where should they start? Following the show's debut in December, I've had pals who sorta fell out of games pop up asking that to me, some sort of professional opinion-haver. Should they start at the beginning of CD Projekt Red's series? Skip to the end? Are the older games…

RPS Asks: How did you survive over the holidays?

That squeaking noise is 2019 slowly deflating in the corner. You’re done now, noble year. Thanks for trying. Uh-oh, I’m getting introspective and thinky. I’d better distract myself. With the holidays all but over, how did you manage to survive them? Tell me what you played and what sort of fun you had. I'll go first! I survived with Portal 2.

Feature: Five mice entered, one remains...

The RPS Readers’ official Favourite Gaming Mouse of 2019 is…

Last week, I asked you what's your favourite gaming mouse? Hundreds of mice came squeaking at our doors, but only five were strong enough to break into our voting arena. All of them hailed from the ranks of Razer and Logitech, and now, after a weekend of duking it out inside our specially prepared battle royale cage, one has emerged victorious. That mouse is the…

RPS Asks: Vote for your favourite gaming mouse

Earlier this week, I asked you what's your favourite gaming mouse? and you answered that call in your droves. Thank you! There were a lot of votes to tally, but having counted them all up I now come to you with another question. Five mice have emerged as your runaway favourites, but which one is truly the bestest best gaming mouse of all? Vote now.

RPS Asks: What’s your favourite gaming mouse?

We all have our favourite gaming mice. For me, it's a toss up between the Logitech G Pro Wireless and the ever so lovely Roccat Kain 120, both of which have been sitting proudly atop my best gaming mouse rankings ever since I tested them earlier in the year. But chances are that there's a piece of plastic gripped between your clawed fingers that just…

RPS Asks: What’s in your Christmas haul?

There was a time when I'd have been absolutely gutted if I hadn't found at least a couple of games underneath the Christmas tree, but now that my entire collection is digital, I'm more likely to find a gift in my inbox or Steam account than under any trees. This is good – it prepares me for a future without either gifts or trees.I miss…

RPS Asks: do you restart games you haven’t finished?

I've played a million beginnings and around a thousand endings, or at least that's how it feels. Imagine having seen the first act of Romeo and Juliet a hundred times but never having seen how it ends. That's my experience with all manner of games, from big story-driven RPGs to some of my favourite strategy epics. I've founded so many starter cities that have never…

Feature: Do you fear hundred hour epics?

RPS Asks: Are Long Games Appealing Or Intimidating?

The Witcher 3 [official site] is the longest game I've played for years, or at least the longest game that I've actually come close to completing. There was a time when I'd be thrilled to hear about a new fifty or sixty hour epic adventure, very much subscribing to the policy “the more the better”, but now I'm more likely to flinch away from the…

What Game Did You Want To Like But Couldn’t?

I used to record a podcast, at the end of which we'd take questions submitted by listeners. Somewhere early on we were asked the question, "What game does everyone else seem to like, that you wanted and tried to like, but bounced off?" We then spent the next two years ignoring the question as it was submitted again and again, by people who presumably did…
