Superhot Mega-Stunts In Tick Tock Bang Bang

Like Superhot, Tick Tock Bang Bang [official site] is an FPS where time slows to a crawl when you stand still. Unlike Superhot, Tick Tock Bang Bang is a ridiculous mess of explosions, trucks screaming down highways, jumping cars, robots, and garish colours. That’s because TTBB will have you playing as a stunt actor, see. Oh, and the ridiculousness is because it’s made by AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! and Drunken Robot Pornography developers Dejobaan Games.

In a break from posts about games coming out in the months and years ahead, hey: Tick Tock Bang Bang is already out.

The Bestest Best Games Of 2016 So Far

We usually do our enormous GAMES OF THE YEAR posting fest at the end of the year (as would seem logical) but because it seems silly to reserve praise for special occasions we’re doing a Games Of The Half Year collection to tell you about everything we’ve loved playing so far. It can double as a summer holiday recommendations list too!

We’ve listed ours in alphabetical order to prevent genre-based punch-ups in the staff chatroom. We’d also invite you to list any gems we haven’t mentioned or might not have played in the comments below.

Look, Both Hands: Superhot VR Gets Gameplay Trailer

A couple of weeks back, we learned that time-manipulating FPS SUPERHOT [official site] was in-line for an Oculus Rift-powered virtual reality edition. Speaking on Reddit, SUPERHOT Team’s PR person Szymon Krukowski explained that the hardware’s as yet unreleased motion controllers are tied to the game’s start-stop mechanics and it all sounded pretty wonderful. Now SUPERHOT VR has a trailer and, yes, it looks every bit as good as I imagined.

Superhot VR Will Be Oculus Exclusive, First DLC Free

From its 2014 prototype, to its full release earlier this year, the ultra-cool time-manipulating FPS SUPERHOT [official site] has went from strength to strength. Just ask Adam. Just ask Graham. Just ask anyone! (Although ask Adam and Graham first because they’ve written good words on the subject.)

The first post-release dev blog from developers SUPERHOT Team has now revealed two important things: one, that the game’s first batch of DLC will come free-of-charge in the coming months; and two, that an Oculus Rift exclusive VR edition is expected to release later this year.

Steam Charts: Farming, Factories And Fallouts

Yup, I’m trying to make this a regular thing again. I know you’re very excited about that. Bit late this week as I wasn’t around for the first two days of it, but there is still MUCH TO LEARN from the top-ten best-sellers on Steam last week.

It’s a strong mix of independent and mega-gazillion blockbuster; though the overall shape of the chart isn’t hugely surprising, the number one winnah perhaps is.

Steam Charts: Clancy, Cavemen, Construction & Cullings

A run-down of the previous week’s top-selling Steam titles is something I used to do regularly, but a combination of it tending to be fairly unchanging week-to-week and being a feckless human being who can’t stand to do the same thing for long meant I fell out the habit. These are changed times, though: with indiepocalypses here and flash sales there, the Steam charts are now wildly changeable, so I like to look in from time to time, like an old aunt raising a withered eyebrow at reports of what her nephews are up to at university. This week: a whole lot of Ubisoft, not a lot of XCOM and an unofficial Hunger Games (or an unofficial Running Man, if you prefer the awful classics).

Superhot’s Virtual Reality Plans “Oh So Much Fun”

Superhot [official site] is the uber-stylish, time-manipulating first-person shooter that you might’ve spotted Adam praising recently. It’s out now but developers Superhot Team aren’t slowing down, having revealed future plans that include free content updates and the small matter of virtual reality support.
