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…

Pinball FX2 – Bethesda Pinball review

DOOM, Skyrim and Fallout have been recreated as Pinball FX2 [official site] tables. Because nobody else at RPS has the flippin' guts to take on such a massive task, I've spent a couple of hours with each, and have now judged them. Short version, I like them about as much as I like the games they're based on, which means one is great, and the…

Skyrim, Fallout, and Doom tables flip into Pinball FX2

I've been playing a fair bit of actual physical pinball lately, having discovered a half-dozen machines across nearby pubs. My favourites put their themes into motion, like the NBA table where I get to launch the ball at a hoop (aided by mystical magnetism). The selection isn't ideal, mind; I'm not much into basketball and Monopoly is so undesirable. No, digital pinball is a far…

They’re Coming Outta The Goddamn Balls!

Before my parents abandoned hope of me not growing up a degenerate and allowed me to watch murdermovies, I was fascinated by the local swimming pool's Aliens arcade cabinet and Terminator 2 pinball table - Cool Things I couldn't have. Ooh, the hours I spent watching bigger kids play or waggling the joystick as I pretended to play the demo! This... isn't quite going where…

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Rolling To Pinball FX2

That there Star Wars: The Force Awakens was fun, wasn't it? No, I shan't spoil anything - though Adam, Alec, and Pip chatted about it if you want to know what Team RPS think. Me, I liked the bits where the robots and carpetman all made funny noises. I laughed every time. They really good! If your feelings for Star Wars run deeper, if you…

Portal Pinball. Need I Say More?

It takes a very special something to make me excited about a pinball game. I played Pokemon Pinball to death, way back when, but very few pinball games since have really captured my attention. Until now. Until the Aperture Science Heuristic Portal Pinball Device. It’s a Portal themed table for Zen Pinball [official site] and it looks fantastic. See for yourself in the trailer below…

Rock It, Raccoon: Zen Pinball 2 Guardians Of The Galaxy

Zen Pinball 2 isn't my digital pinball flavour of choice. I prefer the recreation of actual tables, even if sometimes imperfect, to the shiny Marvel and Star Wars licensed fare of Zen Studios. I still dabble in the lightshow occasionally though and a new Guardians of the Galaxy table seems like a good excuse to shake off the ball rust. Judging by the trailer (below),…

Feature: Portcullis is an excellent word

Impressions: CastleStorm

Humour, much like relationships, sex and peaceful diplomatic resolution of conflict, is something a lot of games try but few manage to get right. If they aren't crass or straight up unfunny, jokes in games can often feel out of sync with a hyper-serious shoot-the-mans focused universe or dry simulation. When they aren't, the limitations of player interaction, voice triggers and animation prevent true greatness…

Heaviest Rain: CastleStorm Incoming

Zen Studios send word that their fairly fancy side-scrolling tower defence game, CastleStorm, which has already amused some of the TV-box people, is coming to PC on July 29th. It shall be known as Castlestorm day, or something! It should be explained that this is a game of constructing castles from various elements (in a pre-battle editor) and then withstanding a siege. There is also…
