Video: Bus Simulator 18’s multiplayer will break your bank balance (and maybe your bones)

The news that Bus Simulator 18 had added a multiplayer mode caused quite the ripple in the RPS treehouse. For one afternoon cat pics and Brendy‚Äôs weird GIFs made way for dreams of glorious four bus convoys, all honking horns and sliding open doors in perfect unison. The reality, as I discovered with Noa, is more frightening. This is an unforgiving world where the tiniest…

Bus Simulator 18 contracts World Cup Fever

You've ran through the Ikea warehouse shouting "It's coming home!" You've rearranged H&M's display of folded t-shirts into a Saint George's Cross. You've had a football bouncing around inside your Electrolux washing machine for coming up two days now. You're posting packs of Panini World Cup stickers to yourself then shouting as they fall through the letterbox. How else can you display your twin loves…

Bus Simulator 18 out now, with mods & multiplayer

In a week full of loud of colourful E3 announcements, what has me most immediately excited is the prospect of getting online with three pals to drive bus routes together in Bus Simulator 18. Released today, it's a drive-o-business sim about, y'know, driving buses - with multiplayer! You can pass each other while driving your routes, go explore the city on foot together, and even…

Bus Simulator 18’s co-op multiplayer sounds delightful

As much as I enjoy a lonely life on the road with my big rig in American Truck Simulator, I'm also well up for a spot of larking up with my pals in a different transport sim. Bus Simulator 18 is coming next month with four-player online cooperative bus-driving, and it sounds promising. Here, come watch this new trailer with a four-bus convoy taking up…

Drone Swarm is about controlling 32,000 units at once

Wow. It's not often a game impresses me with graphics or technology anymore, but Drone Swarm [official site] is immediately a thrill just to look at. It's a space-set singleplayer RTS in which you control a swarm of 32,000 drones. You click to direct them and they swirl as an undulating mass, each little ship individually simulated. You must watch the 11 minutes of video…

Bus Simulator 16 Launch Trailer Arrives Early, Leaves Without Waiting For You

I confess, the Truck Simulator thing has passed me by. I know they must be great, because my colleagues are so delighted by them, but having suffered early on in the onslaught of silver bold, italicised simulator titles, I struggle to believe. Alice already donned her straw hat, straw dungarees and straw hanging out of the side of her maw to tell us about Farming…

Bus Simulator 16 Will Let You Manage The Buses

My love of driving simulators - including bus simulators such as OMSI - isn't ironic. I resent living in a world that thinks my interest in the just announced Bus Simulator 16 [Facebook page] anything but sincere. German many-sim publisher Astragon have declared that the game will be out before the end of the year and it sounds like it may be taking a cargo-load…

Feature: Talk to the Sand

The Lighthouse Customer: Son of Nor

Each Monday, Chris Livingston visits an early access game and reports back with stories about whatever he finds inside. This week, terraforming sand and terrorizing villagers with Son of Nor. I lift my hands and the sand at my feet forms into a towering pillar. I point my palms down and the sand retreats, creating a deep sinkhole. I am a Son of Nor, a…

Black & White Brawler: Son Of Nor

I'm playing Crysis 3 at the moment, more on which soon, but one of the thoughts pinballing around my head is that it's made so much world, with so much detail, then provided almost no purpose for of memorable interaction with it. Watching the latest alpha footage of physics combat game Son Of Nor made for a timely comparison: a stark desert setting, unfinished art,…
