If so, then you should check out our latest music quiz, which focuses on all things Assassin's Creed.Because the masses have been eating up online quizzes during lockdown, RPS' video wing has been testing the waters to see if you, the video game playing public, also enjoy them.…

You can’t pet the dog in Superhot: Mind Control Delete

Superhot: Mind Control Delete is the standalone follow-up to phenomenal FPS puzzler Superhot. It's been in early access for a while, but if you already own Superhot, you'll get Mind Control Delete for free when it comes out on July 16th. Mind Control Delete has a lot of cool new enemies that are effectively slight variations on the shimmering silhouettes that chased after you in…

Feature: Epic lute

Mortal Shell is a body-hopping Dark Souls tribute act, with wicked lute solos

I dread any ‘soulslike’ game arriving in my inbox, as it normally means having to make a video based on the first fight shot from different angles, as I couldn’t get any further. So it speaks to the appeal of Cold Symmetry's Mortal Shell that I persevered long enough to put together an entire video preview, and find a delightful lute to jam on in…

Feature: Where the wild things are

Biomutant sounds like Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but furrier

The Biomutant reveal feels like a lifetime ago. Announced at Gamescom in 2017, the kung fu... cat/panda/bear-thing captured the imagination of everyone with that first trailer. And, despite some delays, the excitement for Experiment 101's open world RPG has been growing ever since. No wonder, I suppose. You are a kung fu cat/panda/bear-thing, after all.

Allow me to show you around my wonderful Minecraft house… in hell

I play Minecraft to build pleasing little houses, and so new block types are the most exciting things that can be added to the game, as far as I'm concerned. I'm pretty happy, then, as the new 1.16 "nether" update, which launched this week, has added loads. What's more, they're almost all found in the titular nether - Minecraft's weirdo hell dimension, which was pretty…

Come watch a newcomer and a forgetful veteran play Deus Ex live

RPS threw Deus Ex a 20th anniversary birthday bash earlier in the week with a superb oral history of the game’s creation. Did you know that there was going to be a pirate island at one point? That and many other gems await you. To continue the ‘fun’, the RPS vid buds thought we’d revisit the game in a stream. If that earlier feature was…

SpongeBob: Battle For Bikini Bottom Rehydrated is your childhood, but shinier

I never got SpongeBob Squarepants. When he was in his pomp, I was in that awkward pre-teen phase where I thought I was too old to just enjoy it as a cartoon, but not quite old enough to be part of the older folk that watched. Because of that, I never played Battle For Bikini Bottom when it first launched in 2003. I have a…

Watch EA Play Live 2020 right here and stick around for Vidbud analysis

Myself and Matthew are continuing Rock Paper Shotgun's not-E3 E3 2020 video coverage with some pre- and post-show chat on EA's EA Play Live 2020 show, starting at 11.40pm BST. We'd love it if you came and watched us talk absolute wallop at an ungodly hour. I will be caning some Nescafé Azera to stay up. Inhaling granules straight from the tin.

Hardspace: Shipbreaker is so destructive… but so relaxing

Without good, honest workers stripping apart old spaceships, the galaxy would be much more crowded. The reason you never see Luke Skywalker run into traffic is because of the hard work done by the great tradesmen of the Milky Way. If you've always been more interested in carefully dismantling spaceships rather than flying them, Hardspace: Shipbreaker is definitely something you should check out.

Come watch the PC Gaming Show with our post-show analysis

The PC Gaming Show is happening right now as I type this, bringing a steady couple of hours of new PC games, new trailers, and plenty of other announcements. Vidbuds Matthew and Colm are currently pouring it into their heads in preparation for a post-show reaction stream. You can hop below to watch the show itself and hang around afterwards for their expert analysis.

Use ‘brain’ with ‘ears’ in our adventure game music quiz

Can you tell your Monkey Island from your Broken Sword? I hope so, or you're going to waste a stupid amount of time trying to get George Stobbart to insult sword fight with Nico. If you pass this very low bar for adventure game knowledge you should probably take a swing at our new adventure game music quiz.

The classic PC games music quiz

At this stage, you've watched everything worthwhile on Netflix and played through a decent chunk of your Steam backlog, so why not try something different on this May bank holiday. Yeah? You up for that? Great. Now, go grab a biro and a piece of paper and see how well you fare in our classic PC games music quiz.

In Other Waters is emphatically not Subnautica

It's an infinite universe, you know. And if there's life out there, there'll be absolutely tons of it. Loads and loads and loads of planets, with unfathomable numbers of worms and that to categorise. But the human imagination is, alas, less infinite. And so, even though there could be as many games about exploring alien oceans as there are (potentially) alien oceans to explore, any…

Unspottable challenges you to be a convincing NPC

The RPS VidBuds have put up a bunch of let's plays as part of Rezzed Digital, as this year's iteration of the usual Indies Uncovered stream, and they've already found some solid games in the pack. But one of the surprise standouts from the bunch, for me at least, is Unspottable. I hadn't heard of Unspottable before, but after watching VidBud Matthew and Hardware Queen…

Watch a man absolutely lose it because of a duck in this bird board game

As Rezzed Digital continues, I will continue to highlight some of the fine work being done by the VidBuds for Indies Uncovered. Usually a series of livestreams, the VidBuds have adapted to present circumstances by turning them into a series of lovely demo videos on the RPS YouTube channel. Another one I'm keen to highlight is the demo of Wingspan, a digital version of a…

Liberated is an action adventure game in a playable comic book

Rezzed Digital is in full swing, so hopefully you've already got one eye on the event's very fine website, and you may even have checked out some of the streams and talks. In any case, you can watch them all right here on RPS as they go live!But what is Rezzed, without a delicious spread of indie games to go with all of that? Our…

Feature: (The YouTuber is our YouTuber)

This YouTuber built What Remains Of Edith Finch in The Sims 4

Alice L. was the person who really encouraged me to dive headlong into the pool of long build projects that is my fandom of The Sims 4. She is both one third of the Council Of Alices and one third of the RPS VidBud team on YouTube, and she's just started a new Sims 4-themed video series. In Can We Build It?, Alice L. attempts…

We’re launching 3 new video series and memberships over on YouTube

Down below the RPS treehouse, through the trap door and deep into the depths of the gaping chasm, lies the RPS video dungeon. You already know this, but what you might not have known is that we’ve renovated the place a little bit. If you pop over to the Rock Paper Shotgun YouTube channel, you'll see our fancy new banner, a button to sign-up to…

Kentucky Route Zero’s point-and-click poetry explained for newcomers

I adore Kentucky Route Zero. Likewise, I adore the pieces on this site that discuss it. Alec's review in particular is incredibly articulate, goes into a lot of depth, and comes from a place of passion for the game. The discussion of Kentucky Route Zero generally, however, can be somewhat overwhelming to trawl through as a newcomer, and in order to fully take in much…
