Video: 8 cowboy games to play on PC while everyone else plays Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 was made by five million people working nine day weeks, but does it have a duck that collects your discarded throwing knives? Actually, I don’t know, as it’s not on PC. But a game that does feature a magic duck, and can be played on your home computer, is the lovely Luckslinger. It’s one of eight delightful cowboy ‘em ups that…

Desperados: Wanted Dead Or Alive updated after 17 years to work on modern Windows

Hot diggity dawg! After years crawling the digital desert lower than a lizard, real-time tactical stealth murderer Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive now plays nicely on modern systems. Publishers THQ Nordic last week released an update making the 2001 game support modern Windows along with Mac and Linux, to fix the problem of it crashing like a horse full of rotgut. Desperados is a tip-top…

Gulag Ork-esta: Gothic 4 Released

Hold onto your hat/kettle helmet/spangenhelm! Gothic 4, aka ArcaniaA: Gothic 4, has been released on European direct download sites. North Americans will have to wait until the 19th (EDIT: Turns out NA residents can get it now on GamersGate), and I'm not sure about the rest of the world. As I type this I am imagining some furious Mexican RPS fan throwing his morning tequila…

Getting Kobold: Arcania: Gothic 4 E3 Trailer

So, Gothic 4 trailer, then? I'm ten seconds into this before the voice-over mentions - without any visible trace of irony - "an island under attack by an ancient evil". I can imagine the debate in the Spellbound office - "Isn't this completely clichéd nonsense?" "No - you see, this is an island under attack from an ancient evil. Not a land, country, world, etc,…
