RPS Asks… What’s The Game You’re The Worst At That You Most Enjoy?

Being bad at something doesn’t always mean it’s not enjoyable. And that’s never more the case than when there’s not an opponent to let down or feel crushed by. In the solitary land of single-player video games, it’s very possible to be absolutely dreadful at a game and yet adore playing it. Perhaps it’s even possible in multiplayer gaming too?

For me, the best example is Teleglitch. I’m not even going to tell you how embarrassingly far I’ve gotten into that game, but I’ve played it so much. But what is it for you?

Have You Played… Teleglitch?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

Teleglitch [official site] is one of the most difficult games I’ve ever played and it might also be one of the best. It plays out like a top-down Doom if Doom were about a terrified survivor of the Phobos incident rather than a rugged space marine.

The 25 Best Horror Games On PC

Below you will find the 25 best horror games ever released on PC. To ensure the list was as accurate as possible, the compiler was locked in a dark cellar with a copy of every game in existence and a computer capable of running them all. Two weeks later, the following article was found written on the walls in blood (the postscript was recorded on an audiolog). The writer was nowhere to be seen.

Top-Down Terror: Noct, Teleglitch And Darkwood

Noct [official site] is a top-down horror game in the tradition of Teleglitch and Alien Breed. It’s grainy, thermal-imaged satellite-view is the antithesis of a sedate bird’s-eye-view, stripping away tactical oversight and contemplation. Noct is one of several recent games to create a tense and claustrophobic experience by twisting a typically expansive, liberating and distancing viewpoint. We covered it when it arrived on Kickstarter and since then it’s been picked up by Devolver and is preparing to enter Early Access. It looks splendid, as you can see for yourself in the embedded footage and teaser trailer below.

Cult Development: A Paradox Profile

“We don’t want to be a cult.” Shams Jorjani is VP of Acquisition and Portfolio Strategy at Paradox Interactive. He’s the guy who reads through and listens to a thousand MOBA pitches and occasionally finds a Teleglitch hidden behind them. He laughs at the cult line as soon as its out there. This, after all, is a company that frequently dresses its employees in coloured wizard robes, faces concealed.

Cultish maybe. Cult adjective rather than cult noun. Bruce Campbell’s career rather than Tom Cruise’s alternate career.

!: Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Seven Year Humble Bundle

We’re seven years old! (Actually, we were seven years old last month, but we’ve never been much for punctuality.) And so by way of celebration we’ve curated the latest weekly Humble Bundle, and that means we’ve chosen some of our most beloved indie games from the past seven years for the Pay What You Want sale. An esoteric bunch, but so very beautiful, all. If only there were room for all the delights of those many wonderful years. As ever, some of the money goes to charity, too: we chose EFF and Medecins Sans Frontieres. Find out more, below, or simply click over the the bundle itself.

Death Is Cheap: Teleglitch Updates, On Sale

I don’t normally post about patches and I don’t often post when a single game goes on sale. Teleglitch is an exception though, particularly when the update is as beefy as the one that just landed. As well as tweaking the strength of various weapons and the difficulty of some levels, the patch adds an arena mode, which contains four chapters of challenges that provide specific load-outs and waves of enemies to destroy. Teleglitch is what happens when Dark Souls takes its training wheels off so expect those arenas to reach out of your monitor and slap you across the face. The game is currently discounted in a week-long Steam sale, which puts the price at £3.06. Here’s wot we all thought about it.

Teleglitch DLC Offers Musical Death Arsenal


Masterful top-down shooter Teleglitch – which is appalling difficult, and one of my favourite games of the year (or last year, really) – has a DLC, and it’s called Guns And Tunes. This is fairly self explanatory: new music to score your inevitable death, and some new guns. There will be right more monster-mincing tools, and you’ll even be able to select which of them you want to start the game with, or choose to have them randomised for you at the outset. The DLC costs £0.99.

Teleglitch: Die More Edition Is Imminent


It is very important to me that you realise how much affection I have for the brutal lo-fi roguelike shooter, Teleglitch. It’s a horrible, atmospheric game that does everything right. It’s gruesomely claustrophobic, and ridiculously difficult. It allows you to explore for scraps of the world, letting you bolt things together into makeshift weapons that probably won’t – if we’re being honest – actually keep you alive. The game has materialised on the dark edges of digital distribution today, and at the time of writing it has just appeared on Steam. You will be able to get Steam keys from all these places, too, of course. The new edition – published by Paradox and containing extra expandy bits – will be made available to everyone who has purchased the game, so existing owners can upgrade, somehow.
