THAT’S NOT TRUE, THAT’S: UNPOSSIBLE

Unpossible is maybe the single worst videogame name I’ve ever heard. Well, as far as games without a rowdy army of colons, semicolons, dashes, slashes, and subtitles go. The game itself looks like a heck of a ride, though. The spiraling loops of a (good) 3D Sonic The Hedgehog or perhaps Audiosurf fused with Super [...]

Wot I Think: The Blackwell Epiphany

Dave Gilbert’s Blackwell Legacy series finally draws a veil over itself today with its final chapter, The Blackwell Epiphany. But does even New York’s unluckiest and most underpaid medium stand a ghost of a chance of ending things on a high in this spirited finale? Here’s Wot I Think… There’s little harder to write than [...]

Go(at) Figure: Goat Simulator Update To Add Parkour

FINALLY. As I discovered while horsing goating around for all the world to see, Goat Simulator has literally everything one could possibly conceive of throwing into a videogame. Between its quiet, moving narrative, masterfully measured pacing, tasteful use of whaling sections, allegorical nods to both Shakespeare’s entire career and his greatest lost work, The Fifth [...]

You Have 9 Hours To Get Red Orchestra 2 Free

“Some days war takes patience, but other days it demands action,” the sergeant barks, I write, lazily imagining how sergeants may speak in all those WW2 films from the 1960s that I haven’t watched. “Today is a day for action,” I hint to lead into the crux of this video game news post for Rock, [...]

FTL Meets Dwarf Fortress: Universe Edge

When we asked readers how they had chosen to spend their eggstra long weekend (for those in countries without a Holiday Eggfest, my apologies), I learned one thing – with the release of the expanded edition, FTL has ensnared the crew of the good ship RPS once again. I enjoy the game – Captain’s Edition, [...]

Babe Ruthless: Baseball Gets Violent In Lethal League

Sports hooliganism seems inefficient: if you’re going to behave so childishly, why not build that violence into the competition in the first place? Rollerball, The Running Man, Death Race 2000, the Thunderdome… we have countless examples of it going just dandy for everyone involved. Megabyte Punch developers Reptile Games understand this, and are combining baseball [...]

A Game And A Chat: FRACT OSC’s Flanagan

FRACT OSC is a musical passion project that’s been strumming light riffs on the backing track of RPS’ Official Exciteosourchestra for years. It’s a first-person explorer set in a pulsating dance floor paradise of smooth synths and devious puzzles. Our kind of thing? You don’t know the half of it. Alec, however, came away feeling slightly [...]

More King’s Bounty: A Trip To The Dark Side

Resist cynicism or die. Hope. Dream. Think. Act. Be vulnerable. Open yourself to risk or you’ll never truly learn, love, or live. That hip new band may very well drop a cracking second album, I can make that Cronenbergian game controller I’ve been dreaming of, my mum shall stop hinting that I’m going to die [...]
