Have You Played Grand Theft Auto V?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I haven‘t played Grand Theft Auto V since just a few months after its release, but parts of its city are still as clear in my memory as some of the real cities I‘ve lived in.

Playerunknown‘s Battlegrounds datamined map shows more of the desert

I seem drawn to games where one map is played over and over and over until I know every corner and every brick and every tiny change feels huge. A few years ago Dota 2 moving some trees would make me flip, and now I‘m stoked as Playerunknown‘s Battlegrounds is adding a pond. But Plunkbat []

Premature Evaluation: Bermuda Lost Survival

For this week‘s Premature Evaluation, we‘ve tossed Fraser into Bermuda - Lost Survival‘s unfriendly ocean, where he‘ll have to survive on whatever he can steal from the water. I have, over the last couple of years, misplaced a yacht, crashed a yacht and fallen out of a yacht. You might say that Poseidon and I []

Klonk! Powie! Zowie! Injustice 2 punches onto PC

Superheroes, supervillains, and superantiheroes from DC Comics are now kicking seven shades of heck out of each other in Injustice 2, the new fighting game from Mortal Kombat developers NetherRealm. The supersequel hit consoles in May and finally launched on PC today. Our Adam already played a bit on PlayStation 4 quite likes it so []

New pond in Playerunknown‘s Battlegrounds: nice to visit, rubbish for swimming

When we heard reports that the Playerunknown‘s Battlegrounds test patch adding climbing vaulting also digs a pond in a woodland glade, we sent RPS wild swimming correspondent Alice O‘Connor onto the test server to investigate. Bad news: The new pond is rubbish for swimming. Good news: If you‘re seeking somewhere for a nice walk, []

Prototype Mansion is a short parody of old Resident Evil

Tank controls are the mark of a real horror game. Prototype Mansion is a game that was, according to its own fiction, found in a bin by some guy called Frank. It‘s a zombie game in the style of the old Resident Evils blocky character models, stilted voice acting and boxes of ammo lying []

Dead Cells boasts brutality but its real joy is consistency

The ruinous ‘roguevania‘ Dead Cells remains atop its throne of skulls - the defeated remnants of all other games released this year. If you haven‘t enjoyed the electrowhips or bloodied throwing knives of this dice-powered 2D riposte to Bloodborne, go and sort yourself out instead of reading this article. I‘d say ‘I‘ll wait for you‘ []

Farming Simulator 17 harvests Platinum expansion

I wish farming simulators could be an odd chillout experience for me similar to what Alec finds in American Truck Simulator, but sadly their repetition requires a different type of attention that I just can‘t relax under. However, I do still admire them - and some of the pretty places they go. Farming Simulator 17 []

Have You Played Magicka?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. QFQFSAA + M2. I just made a double steam arcane double lightning beam, and now you‘re dead. Oh, you were on my team? Crap. Magicka does away with mana and cooldowns, allowing up to four wizards []

Roguelike ADOM making way for Ultimate ADOM

Adam loves ADOM. There must be something about very old roguelikes that overpowers our deputy editor. The allure of a random dungeon. The temptation to drink every potion at once. But he also once told us that the final boss of ADOM (short for Ancient Domains of Mystery) is his gaming nemesis. Well, now he []

Wolfenstein 2 story DLC dated, detailed, silly-named

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is, for better or worse, very much BJ Blazkowicz‘s story, and outside a few shocking shots of the wider world, isn‘t entirely interested in showing us how Nazi rule in the 1960s affects the individual lives of others. We already knew that story-based DLC was on its way, but now []

This War of Mine starts story-focused expansion series

If you like your emotional gut-punches delivered via authored narratives rather than emergent stories, then I‘ve got some great news. This War of Mine is stepping away from the wartime survivalist Sims strategy that makes up the the main game, and now wants to tell you about how miserable the lives of specific people are []
