Premature Evaluation: Comanche

The latest in a long list of topics I have hurled myself into these past two weeks in the naive hope of distracting my anxiety for even just a few minutes, helicopters are all I’m choosing to think about right now. Wow, how do they work? The world is coming to an end. They’re such an exciting way to get around! Hovering celebrity death traps.…

Biomutant is still in the works, its developers confirm

Kung-fu animal action RPG Biomutant has been in the works for quite a while. Biomutant was announced back in 2017 and was then planning for a release the following year in 2018. Both of those years have come and gone and mum's been the word but Experiment 101 spoke up today to assure folks that the pretty apocalypse is still coming. "We've never been working…

Desperados 3 gets a new trailer and is coming this summer

Things have been quiet out of the Desperados 3 corner for several months, ever since the closed beta in 2019. Sometimes a cowboy's got a feeling though and I had a good feeling we'd see Mimimi Productions' next tactical game in 2020. Looks like it's time to put another news in the chamber and cock it because Desperados 3 has a new trailer today and…

Gothic Remake is going ahead, following a positive response to the public prototype

THQ Nordic are going ahead with their Gothic Remake, a do-over of the 2001 fantasy RPG. They released a public playable prototype in December and, having surveyed players, today announced reactions were positive enough for them to think it worthwhile. They did note that they're aware that not all the Gothic Playable Teaser's new design decisions and artistic changes were popular, and say they'll have…

Darksiders, Darksiders II, and Steep are free for a week on the Epic Game Store

It never ends. First there are the Xmas sales, full of gaming turkey for me to fill up on. Then my aunt showed up with Lee Carvallo’s Modern Warfare. And now, post-New Year, the Epic Game Store has just thrust Darksiders Warmastered Edition, Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition, and Steep into my arms. They’re free from now until Jan 9. I hope the sales are still…

THQ Nordic released a Gothic remake prototype to see if fans want it

Do people want a remake of Piranha Bytes' 2001 fantasy RPG Gothic? Maybe, series owners THQ Nordic think, so they've made a prototype of a remake and last night gave it to fans to see what they think. This prototype looks all shiny and new, obviously, while also modernising other parts of the old formula. The company say that if people like this wee teaser,…

Feature: The Cowboy(s from hell) Game

Darksiders Genesis review

Howdy pardner! Git yerself a mighty glug of moonshine and meet me down at Dysentery Dan’s place, ‘cause we’ve got ourselves a roundup to… oh. Wait. Wrong game. It’s the horses that threw me off, you see. I always associate them with cowboys, now. But this is not the Cowboy Game. This is Darksiders Genesis. Nevertheless, while this prequel spin-off to the hack-and-slash series is…

Have You Played… Black Mirror?

No, not that Black Mirror, the stupidly successful TV show created by former UK games journalist Charlie Brooker. The gothic horror adventure game Black Mirror. Well, gothic horror is perhaps a bit strong for this slightly ropey point-and-click style puzzler. Sure, it's set in a spooky mansion in the middle of the Scottish highlands, but its dead-eyed cast of stiff geriatrics are more comical than…

Feature: Stop, in the name of the bore

Rebel Cops review

It’s interesting how often cops crop up as heroes. Not unsurprising, as the fantasy makes sense in a macho, often politically dubious sort of way. It's not one of mine, however. As such, I'm glad Rebel Cops steps away from it a little. In this turn-based, tactical, XCOM-ish spin-off from This Is The Police, your cops are indeed rebels, rallying against systemic injustice. Admittedly, it's…

Have You Played…This Is The Police?

It's just 180 days until Jack Boyd's retirement in This is the Police. He's the chief of police who has to juggle many balls and not drop one, otherwise everything goes horribly wrong. The mayor is breathing down his neck constantly, while his staff plead for time off to volunteer at the animal sanctuary, all the while the crooks are plaguing the city.

This Is The Police spin-off Rebel Cops is law-enforcement XCOM

In This Is The Police, corruption was easy. Sitting pretty at the top, skewing your officer's patrols to help funnel the right folk into the right jails and the proceeds into your pocket? That's all in a day's work, really. Someone like that needs taking down a peg. Enter, Rebel Cops. With nasties in the town hall and your squad waging a guerrilla war, it…

Desperados 3 has a dangerously distracting cat

I was up for Desperados III just knowing the real-time tactical stealth series is being resumed by the studio behind the swish Shadow Tactics. But the most important detail of the game has, for reasons I cannot fathom, been kept quiet until this month: one of our squad members has a cat. This cat is named Stella. When Stella's food-provider talks to Stella, she meows…

Comanche reborn as a multiplayer game with drones, somehow?

In their ongoing mission to capitalise on memories of PC gaming 1992-2006, THQ Nordic have announced a new Comanche game. The publishers say this is "based on" Novalogic's Comanche sim series from the 90s, though the only similarity seems to be having helicopters. THQ Nordic say this here new Comanche is a "modern, team-based online multiplayer helicopter shooter" where players will also fly wee drones…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Alien invasion spoof Destroy All Humans is being remade

Forming a boundless ouroboros of nostalgia and referential humour, mid 2000s B-movie sandbox shooter Destroy All Humans is getting the remake treatment. For those who missed it the first time, it's roughly Grand Theft Auto wrapped around the aesthetics and tone of Mars Attacks and Invader Zim. Playing as big-headed invader Cryptosporidium, players probe, mind-scan and otherwise explode a bunch of '50s American stereotypes. While…

Darksiders Genesis announced as a co-op hack n’ slasher

There's more Darksiders on the way, but this one's looking a little smaller and cuter than the last. Darksiders Genesis is taking its sprawling world of comic-book gothic excess and cramming it into a cooperative hack n' slasher. Starring new horseman Strife (introduced in Darksiders 3) teaming up with his big-shoulder-padded buddy War; together they fight demon crimes. While some have likened it to Diablo…

THQ Nordic buy Gothic and Risen creators Piranha Bytes

THQ Nordic continue to hoover up studios and games that make many go "Oh huh, yeah, they could be neat," today announcing they've bought Piranha Bytes. They're the German studio who created Gothic, Risen, and Elex, three open-world RPG series with varying degrees of promise and wonk that make many go "Oh huh, yeah, they could be neat." Along with the team, THQ Nordic have…

Factorio-but-first-person building game Satisfactory launches this month

Coffee Stain Studios are probably tired of everyone saying that their Goat Simulator and Sanctum follow-up Satisfactory looks like a first-person Factorio, but I'd say that's a comparison to embrace. A very good thing given a new perspective, plus dune buggies and jetpacks? Yeah, g'wan. It's been a bit quiet on the Satisfactory front for a while now, other than news that the factory-builder would…

THQ Nordic’s parent company apologises for disastrous 8chan AMA

If you believe (incorrectly) that there's no such thing as bad publicity, you may be impressed that people are still talking about publisher THQ Nordic GmbH. Their 'Ask Me Anything' Q&A session on 8chan - an infamous image-board permanently delisted from Google for hosting suspected child porn - got people chattering. Unfortunately it's the kind of chatter that has brought parent company THQ Nordic AB…
