Under Leaves - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (John Walker)

Sometimes tiny is just enough. Isn’t that a lovely thought? But more often it’s not quite enough, because it’s tiny. Under Leaves [official site] is a very pretty, very tiny little hidden objects game, and it’s not quite enough. … [visit site to read more]

Tilt Brush

Tilt Brush [official site] was, hands down, one of the best things in VR last year, but given the VR platform means a smaller potential player-base it’s got that challenge of “How do I share any of this cool stuff with people not wearing VR headsets?” That’s where the new Sketches gallery comes in, letting you peer at people’s creations using a regular browser. … [visit site to read more]

Tank Warfare: Tunisia 1943 - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Tim Stone)

Graviteam’s reputation for martial eccentricity is under threat. Their next standalone dual-layer wargame isn’t set in a cobwebby corner of the Eastern Front. It doesn’t simulate an operation in the Bangladesh Liberation War or the Western Sahara Conflict. Manned exclusively by German and US personnel, the monikered-with-a-mallet Tank Warfare: Tunisia 1943 (out on Monday, price TBA) has at its hub an operation that is almost a household name compared with the likes of Operations Zvesda and Hooper. … [visit site to read more]

Perception - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

Perception [official site], the first-person spookhouse horror starring a woman who sees with Daredevil-style echolocation, now has a release date: May 30th. We’ll get to explore an abandoned mansion, investigating something spooky which has lurked for generations, by making noises which send out soundwaves we can magically convert to eerie images. Oh, and of course the horrors haunting the mansion are attracted to sound. Great. Good. Lovely. See in this trailer: … [visit site to read more]

Subnautica

Ooooh! A Subnautica [official site] update! This one is called Silent Running and yet the trailer is VERY LOUD. I think the silent bit only applies to the Cyclops (a big underwater craft) which you can now run silently if you want to sneak around. Sneaking is now important because of the underwater jerks trying to munch on your Cyclops. That sounded wrong. Let’s move on and watch the video: … [visit site to read more]

Somehow, through sheer force of will, we ve collectively managed to make it until the end of April. That means Prey is out next week and I can barely contain myself. It might not be as gritty or visceral as some other titles up there but I ll take my Bioshock influenced horror games gladly. Anyways, we ve got a whole new batch of the best PC gaming deals to take a look at, so let s get started.

Little Nightmares - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

“I’ve loved almost every minute of it,” our Adam said about Little Nightmares [official site] last week. Only you had no way to play it then, as it wasn’t out, so all you could do was stare at it through the shop window, face pressed up against the glass. Oh, how you longed to puzzle-o-sneak-a-platform past Tarsier Studios’ horrors! Good news: Little Nightmares is now out, launched last night. Here’s a launch trailer to prove it: … [visit site to read more]

Expeditions: Viking - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Brendan Caldwell)

Hey videogame folks. Expeditions: Viking [official site], the tactical Norse follow-up to historical plunder sim Expeditions: Conquistador, is out this very day. Thursday. Thor s day. The day of thunder. The day of might. Axe-time draws forth, long the wolf howls. Out from the ground the Nithhogg sups at the ankles of warriors. Hel calls to you, wretched cravens, Valhalla awaits only the bloody, only the bold. The hammer blow comes, look high and see the ships above you. Your land is drowned beneath the worldserpent.

Whoa. Excuse me. Don t know what came over me there. Expeditions: Vikings is out today and it is twenty five pounds. … [visit site to read more]

And lo on the 18th day of the fourth month, verily did AMD wheel out its latest but not necessarily greatest new graphics cards. I give you the new AMD Radeon RX 580, 570, 560 and 550 – precision engineered to smite the evil Nvidia. Except they’re not really new. Instead, they’re basically dirty old re-badges of existing graphics cards. That doesn’t automatically mean they’re not of interest. But it does mean we’ll have to wait a little longer for something really revolutionary from AMD. … [visit site to read more]

Elite Dangerous - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Brendan Caldwell)

A bunch of maps and tools for space sim Elite: Dangerous [official site] were shut down today by their creators as part of a protest over what they called a lack of consistency from Frontier in effectively fostering third-party development . The picket line of third-party tools was set to last until Sunday and included some very useful stuff for pilots like maps, trading databases and ship designers. The main complaint these folks had is that Frontier was not communicating with them well when it comes to updates (when a patch comes out the tools are often thrown into disarray without much warning, introducing new bugs and problems for the toolfolk). But spacetalks have already been held and most of the sites will be back up tonight, leaving me in the lurch with absolutely no drama>. Disgraceful. … [visit site to read more]
