Ruin a perfectly good Valentine’s date with Table Manners today

"What if QWOP but Tinder?" is not a question I have ever asked and did not ever want the answer to but here we have it nevertheless. As if going on a first date with a stranger weren't stressful enough, Table Manners turns it into a full-on disaster with slapstick physics. I can imagine getting partway through one of these dates and pulling a full-on…

5 games that prove friendship is better and more interesting than romance

"Is it friendship? Or is it something more?" goes a common sentiment, particularly on days like today, when we celebrate the anniversary of Captain Cook getting stabbed to death. Well, that's a stupid question, because there is nothing more than friendship.Games are, for once, not much worse than other media at depicting and exploring themes of friendship. In fact, some of the best stories about…

Borderlands 3’s Broken Hearts Day event starts tomorrow

Rejoice, for one of the capitalist high holidays is upon us. Valentine's Day is this Friday in our world, which means that every one of your online games will need a pink-themed event to keep you grinding for special pink items. This is Borderlands 3, so it involves hearts and shooting because if "guns" were a personality trait, they would be Borderlands'. The Broken Hearts Day…

Destiny 2 started the Crimson Days event with yet more downtime and another rollback

For the second time in a fortnight, Destiny 2 was last night taken down for hours of emergency maintenance after accidentally wiping some players' spacewallets of Glimmer, Bright Dust, and other spacecurrencies and crafting materials. Turns out, the fix last time didn't fully hold. Bungie have once again rolled back characters to restore lost valuables, which means anything your spacemen did between 4:30pm and 6:30pm…

Duos return to Apex Legends for a limited Valentine’s event

Call up your best shot because duos are coming back to Apex Legends. Respawn announced today that the limited time mode is making another appearance for Valentine's day this year. You can play with your romantic partner of course but in my experience that's a hit or miss proposition—literally and figuratively. The week-long event lands tomorrow with a couple pink-themed goodies to earn.

Bungie are about to sharpen up Destiny 2’s swordfighting

Slash. Slash. Slash. I adore my collection of Destiny 2 swords, but they're not exactly complex beasts. For Honor, it ain't. It seems Bungie have also noticed this blunt angle with blades. The boffins over at sword headquarters have shared some sharp changes to blades arriving with Destiny's next season, promising a more pointed experience when bringing a blade to a gunfight.

Fortnite’s new event mode is basically Counter-Strike

It's time for another one of those limited time Fortnite events and (if you hadn't heard) it's currently February so Epic have gone with a Valentine's sort of theme with the title Love And War. As it do with Fortnite events, there's a new game mode to try out and new themed costumes to buy as well. The new game mode is a decidedly Counter-Strike…

This cute Stardew Valley mod adds Valentine letters from villagers

I've got over 200 hours in just regular, fresh out of the box Stardew Valley. I could probably keep on for another 200 without ever modding the game, but I've had my eye out lately for mods that would spruce up my I-don't-remember-how-manyth farm. Be My Valentine by Taskmaster on Nexus Mods is a small one, but just in time for actual Valentine's Day which…

For Honor released, but where’s the love?

Wow! Talk about shameless cash-ins! Today is Love Day, the most heartfelt of our treasured corporate holidays, but how are Ubisoft choosing to celebrate this? By releasing For Honor [official site], a game whose ONLY connection to Love Day is that it lets you stab people in their love organs (the heart and the bits)! Wow! If that's love, please leave me off your Love…

Lovekill – CoH 2 and Total War: Rome 2 Weekend Trials

"This Valentine's Day," reads a sign in my bank's window, "give the gift of buildings and contents insurance." The cornershop plan to only serve couples maintaining physical contact. I'm facing eviction as, in lieu of rent money, my landlord demands a sworn statement that I think I'm capable of love. In this wacky world, I'm not at all surprised that Sega are marking Valentine's Day…

Virtual Kisses: Valentine’s Day Events 2012

As RPS' only painfully single person at the moment, I'm happy to inform you that Valentine's Day is cancelled. A pox on all happy couples, literally and figuratively. Return to your empty, silent houses with the biggest bag of sweets you can, turn off the lights, and spend the evening sobbing until the sweet, sweet chocolate oozes out of your eyes and anus....or alternatively, jump…
