Friday the 13th’s content update plans meet a grisly end

That Jason Voorhees fellow is a rather intimidating chap, I'll give you that much, but you know what's scarier? Lawyers. By all accounts, Friday the 13th: The Game was surprisingly fun when played with the right group, with room to grow as the developers released more maps, content and features. They'd been doing well up til' now, even adding bots to play against late last…

Cylons And Warp-Horrors: Stellaris’ Late Game Crises

Stellaris [official site] is so close that I'm constantly furious that I'm not actually playing it right now. Stephen Hawking appeared on my telly a few days ago talking about blackholes and I was so angry, so thoroughly convinced that he was taunting my inability to boot up Stellaris and send a research vessel into a blackhole, that I threw the telly out of a…

ARK: Survival Evolved Teases Terror Of The Deep

A gigantic vampire squid-like creature called Tusoteuthis vampyrus will be terrorising the seas of Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] soon. Well, soonish. A newly published Dino Dossier for the creature shows it wrestling with an unwilling ichthyosaurus and brandishing clawed tentacles. Here's what the developers have to say about Tusoteuthis vampyrus:

Dead Synchronicity – Tomorrow Comes Today review

Having been very excited based on the early demo build of point-and-click adventure Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today [official site], I couldn't wait to get my hands on the finished version a year later. But can it live up to its promise? Here's wot I think:

A Game And A Chat: The End Of GDC Spectacularmathon

IT. IS. OVER.┬áDone. Slain. Dead. Six feet under. Sleeping with the daises. Pushing up fishes. We gathered one last time for a reflection on this year's whimsical game dev summer camp, its most important moments, and where the gaming industry is headed as a whole. Part one's guests include Papers Please creator Lucas Pope, Depression Quest creator Zoe Quinn, and Boon Hill dev Matt Ritter.…

Shambling Onto Kickstarter: Undead Overlord

Zombie games are self-cannibalising. Take Undead Overlord. It's a strategy game where you control the zombie hordes and not the humans. You drag and drop the undead, creating more and more brain-chewers as you burn through the population. The developers JumpCore are so excited that their Kickstarter says: "Undead Overlord is born of a passion to see something different exhumed from the zombie games space.…

The Waiting Game: Metal Gear Solid V Footage

The existential limbo that the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain finds itself is is pretty apt given the ridiculous lore of the series. For what it's worth, Hideo Kojima has stated that it will appear "sometime", but that it's not a priority. Boo-urns to that! His lackadaisical attitude isn't going to stop me from showing off the new videos of…

DekkoScan Takes Pics And Builds Minecraft Worlds

Yes, I am reporting on an iPhone app, but one that has interesting implications for the PC version of Minecraft, as well as science-fiction. While drifting through the Reddit rapids this morning, I happened upon DekkoScan and did a double-take. It's a phone app that allows you to take pictures of objects and turn them into Minecraft maps, which seems like something that should already…

Neverwinter ‘Launch Date’, Despite Being Two Months Old

As people should be aware by now, I'm in charge of things. I mean, I write The Rules, after all. And come next update, you can be sure they'll feature an entry about whether your F2P game is launched or not. Neverwinter, which I've played to what I'd consider near-completion, has just announced its launch date. No. Its launch date was the 30th April, when…

Valve’s CS: GO Overwatch Are Always Watching

Did you wake up this morning feeling more judged than usual? Don't panic. Just look around the room and see if you can spot the RPS Staring Eye of Judgement? Well done, you have chosen, or been chosen, to take part in our little experiment: the RPS Staring Eye of Judgement will, eventually, monitor your every move to ensure that when you sit down and…

Brief Impressions: Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack

Gosh! No, wait. Gish! That's better. If there's an obvious inspiration for Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack, Drinkbox Studios' cute 2D side-scrolling platformer, it's that oddly timeless IGF winner. That and Katamari Damacy. But that's not to say Mutant Blobs Attack doesn't have its own strengths. It certainly brings a lot to the mutant blob physics puzzler 2d platform genre.

Feature: Is That The Smell Of Change?

Ubisoft Asking DRM Questions – Here Are Some Answers

It's fair to say that RPS has taken Ubisoft to task over its DRM decisions. The company has made some extremely poor choices, that have overtly harmed people's experiences legitimately playing their games, and no evidence of any reduction in piracy as a result has been shown. However, rather than backing down in the face of the enormous outcry, Ubisoft continued to push it, even…
