Feature: Pain in the neck

Watch us revisit RPG classic Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is on the horizon, and we should be seeing it chomp its way into the necks of the general public some time in March next year. As it turns out, vidbuds Matthew Castle and Alice Liguori haven't ever played the original Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. Other vidbud, me, has played it a bunch before, so in anticipation of brand…

Feature: Tremere-king me very thirsty

Watch us do a stealthy, bitey run in this deep demo of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

If you hold the shift key to slide down the RPS treehouse’s rickety ropeladder, you’ll get ropeburn, but you’ll also get to the bottom of the tree. There, you’ll find a trap door that requires a pulley and a rubber chicken to open, and at the bottom of the gaping chasm, you’ll find me, a ball and chain fastened to my ankle and purple and…

Feature: Dodgy stuff

We tried Ghostrunner and were deemed ‘average’ at its cyberpunk parkour slicing

Have you heard of the new cyberswordman who's getting all the Mirror’s Edgelords excited? Ghostrunner is an arcadey slice ‘em up where you play a cyberpunk ninja who does Titanfall-style parkour between bullet-dodges and decapitations. It looks slick. The RPS video battalion have sent two commandos to Gamescom to take a look, and we have just received their scouting report. In short, it’s pointy and…

Feature: I don't Twana my dog to die

You can pet the dog and manipulate time with a camcorder in Blair Witch

You hear the phrase "Blair Witch video game" and your first thought as an inexplicably loyal fan is: "Oh Gods, please don't balls it up." Well, I'm happy to say despite that initial concern, I found a hands-on preview of the upcoming addition to the found footage terror universe to be inspiring of some confidence. If you want to know more, especially about the protagonist's…

Reviews Roulette: The one with Tony Hawk on a unicycle

Down in the depths of the RPS video dungeon, Matthew will occasionally release Alice L and I from the shackles clasping our wrists (we've still got a big comical prison ball 'n' chain on our ankle, mind you) and gift us with a random selection of video games we've been sent to play. The three of us then give ten minutes or so each in…

How Streets Of Rogue is a tabletop RPG disguised as a roguelike

I love Streets Of Rogue. Loads of us here at Rock Paper Shotgun do, it's why we Can't Stop Playing it. I wanted to dig a little into why I enjoy it as much as I do, and I think a really good way of communicating why is comparing it to rules-light tabletop RPGs.

Feature: What do you mean there's more to it than that?

I met an eerie janitor in Control and helped him clean up with a shapeshifting gun

Control is Remedy's latest game. The creators of Max Payne, Alan Wake, and Quantum Break are back with a third-person shooter that sits in the New Weird genre, a relatively new genre that the likes of X-Files and Twin Peaks sits in. It's very creepy. Our protagonist, Jesse Faden, is super badass and seems to take on what's going on without so much as a…

Feature: A horror shared is a horror halved?

Man Of Medan lets you share the horror with a friend (or four)

I recently went to see Man Of Medan, the new narrative horror game from the makers of Until Dawn. I went in expecting spooks, and came out knowing all about their two new co-op modes. One is Shared Story mode, which is played online and sees you and another friend taking control of different characters in the story to help each other out - or…

E3 games you can play right now

E3 is over! Lots of games were announced for the near (and distant) future, and you'd be forgiven for thinking you had to wait months or years before you could play some of the most exciting announcements. Luckily we've got news for you. Over on the Rock Paper Shotgun YouTube channel we've compiled a list of eight PC games from E3 you can play immediately.

Reviews Roulette: The one with tiny ghosts and egg murder

If you're new here, or aren't a viewer of our YouTube channel, then you might be unaware of something the RPS video team do on a semi-regular basis (listen, it's hard to schedule regular features when you're busy shrieking, and being problematic, and all the other things we YouTubers do.) It's called Reviews Roulette, and the idea is to give airtime to some of the…

Feature: DICE with death

The real star of Battlefield V’s battle royale is a giant, roaming bonfire

DICE appeared to drop the ball when they didn't call Battlefield V's upcoming battle royale offering 'Battlefield Royale'. They called it Firestorm instead, which sounds like a terrible Steven Seagal film you'd buy for 99p at a petrol station. Having now played the mode, due as a free update next Monday, I can see why they went with it. The titular blaze dominates the whole…

Feature: Father, do you love me?

Reviews Roulette: The one with the monkey bird and daddy issues

There is no complaint more sure to induce eyerolls than ‘too many games’, but here we are. There are too many games! It’s not coming from a place of entitlement, but guilt: I’d love to give every Steam key we receive a proper chance, but time limits me to the familiar/most bribe packed. That’s where Reviews Roulette steps in. It’s our new regular video ‘show’…

Just Cause 4 concern: a bug collector’s video

As I was reviewing the really broken and very disappointing Just Cause 4, I was recording key moments too. Moments like when every car at an intersection went crazy and tried to crash into something. Or when my car touched a tree so was catapulted across a mountain. Or how boats spawn by emerging from underwater like mad whales. Or that time an NPC decided…

Video: Hitman 2 let me join the illustrious ranks of Sean Bean’s murderers

“For England, James?” “No, for XP.” 2000 XP, to be precise. That’s how much Sean Bean’s life is worth in the first of Hitman 2’s Elusive Targets. These are timed contracts that give you one shot at killing a special guest character - in this case, everyone’s favourite Yorkshire thespian (okay, it’s a toss up between Bean and fellow GoldenEye alumni Judi Dench). Bean, of…

Video: 8 cowboy games to play on PC while everyone else plays Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 was made by five million people working nine day weeks, but does it have a duck that collects your discarded throwing knives? Actually, I don’t know, as it’s not on PC. But a game that does feature a magic duck, and can be played on your home computer, is the lovely Luckslinger. It’s one of eight delightful cowboy ‘em ups that…

Feature: Warm up the cement mixer!

Hitman 2’s Santa Fortuna is impressive to look at, but Alice’s gameplay isn’t

It almost feels wrong to put a precision killing machine like Agent 47 into the hands of a total newcomer, but sometimes needs must. As the video team's resident Hitman fan was off assassinating some brain cells on a stag do, I was left to attend a hands-on with the newest stage in Hitman 2. It's called Santa Fortuna, and whisks you off to sunny…

Come watch RPS become streaming superstars at EGX 2018

[Update: The first day's streaming is done! But you can still watch us kissing the ground hard in Human Fall Flat in the video below.] That rumbling sound you hear is half of Brighton packing its bags as Gamer Network decamps to Birmingham for EGX 2018. And the Rock, Paper, Shotgun Video Department will be at the show, too. We’ve decided to try our hand…

The Tuesday Matinee: Highlights from the RPS Video Department

Have you been checking in on the Rock Paper Shotgun Video Department? It has its very own video corner on the site where everything is collected. But in case you missed it, I'm going to round up our moving picture delights from the last week. From life-consuming RPGs to fish prisons, we covered a lot of bases.

Video: You Should be Playing… Duskers (and some other recommendations, too)

Have you checked in on the Rock Paper Shotgun Video Department recently? We’ve been slowly populating the YouTube channel with previews, lists, and terrible bus company management. But we’ve also been sowing the seeds of a new series as we went... so quietly in fact, I’m fairly sure it passed a lot of you by. But now, as in Matthew and I’s Stardew Valley shenanigans,…

Feature: Tactics and hacked bits

Video: Bad North is an RTS that even RTS-haters might enjoy

I’m not sure if Bad North is a strategy game for the inept or the lazy. It does a lot that speaks to both: the islands you’re defending are small, you’ve only a few units to guide and those instructions don’t extend beyond ‘go there’ or ‘hide in that’. When they do get ‘there’ they auto-attack any marauders in reach and pursue the stragglers. It…
