Willowbrooke Post | Story-Based Job Management Game - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Jay Castello)

There is something immensely satisfying about the idea of running a post office. Maybe it’s just because I’m that nerd who gets very excited about having a parcel on the way, but something about the blend of organisation and communication seems appealing in a way that other job simulations aren’t. So next week’s early access launch of Willowbrooke Post has my attention, and I m delivering its trailer to you below.

Lawyer em up Ace Attorney isn t technically a PC game yet, but it will be come April 9th, and in anticipation Capcom have been putting up blogs about various aspects of the point-and-shout games. Most recently, Janet Hsu from the localisation team has dug into the game s famous (and often groan-worthy) puns, explaining how they get from Japanese wordplay to English witticisms.

It does include spoilers for the third game in the trilogy, Trials And Tribulations, so proceed with caution if you re still waiting to be able to play them from your desktop.

At GDC this week, Blizzard gave a talk discussing the endorsement system that they added to Overwatch last summer, claiming that it reduced bad behaviour in the first person shooter by 40%. Huzzah!

Unfortunately, even if we take Blizzard s own numbers totally at face value, it s that remaining 60% you re actually going to notice playing the game and interacting with the community.

Now I respect the astronomical calendar as much as the next hippy, but it does feel strange to be celebrating the start of spring when six days ago I was swimming down a baltic river in a snowy forest. I suppose that was technically still winter? It was also only six days ago. I’d better revisit It’s Spring Again if I’m to understand all this.

What are you playing this weekend? Here’s what we’re clicking on!

Fire Pro Wrestling World - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

Spike Chunsoft have announced Killer7 director Goichi Suda (aka Suda 51) will be returning to an old haunt to pen new story DLC for wrestleman sim Fire Pro Wrestling World. I’m not normally much for wrestling games, but even I can appreciate this series, formerly by Human Entertainment. Snappy action, powerful character creation and a history of surprisingly heavy story modes. I’m expecting great, possibly unsettling things from new DLC ‘The Vanishing’, after the utterly bleak ending of Fire Pro Wrestling Special for the SNES, which I WILL SPOIL BELOW.

Mortal Kombat 11 - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

I hold great respect for the Calvinball nonsense that is Mortal Kombat canon. Once a silhouetted joke fighter named after the developers, dark ninja Noob Saibot has grown into an actual character in the new trilogy. NetherRealm have just unveiled his latest incarnation in Mortal Kombat 11, and he looks as delightfully over-the-top as you’d expect. I’d almost be able to take him seriously, were it not for his amazingly goofy voice, sounding like a hybrid of Dr. Claw from Inspector Gadget and the hooded cultist from Harvester. Check out his shadow-clone fighting style below.

Out of the Park Baseball 20 - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

I made a few vows in remembrance of our former Adam (RPS in peace): I will try to understand grand strategy games; I will sneak one single ciggy after the company AGM; I will post about the release of new baseball games. Such as Out Of The Park Baseball 20, the latest in the management sim series I know Adam had a soft spot for, which launched today. Oh Adam. I could almost swear I saw Adam playing a baseball game on ye olde RPS Steam account the other night. The mind sees what it wants to see.

Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

Why, yes, that is a polar bear about to saw an anime girl in half, because that’s what happens when Zero Escape director Kotaro Uchikoshi is no longer restrained to the waking world. AI: The Somnium Files is his next game, developed by Spike Chunsoft, and now has a July 26th release date on PC. It’s a sci-fi mystery that seems vaguely inspired by oddball Jennifer Lopez psycho-thriller The Cell, putting players in the shoes of a cyber-psychic detective investigating people’s dreams as well as crime scenes. Below, a bizarre new trailer that I wouldn’t try to make sense of yet.

Denuvo, the folks behind the much-maligned DRM-strengthening software Denuvo Anti-Tamper, intend to block more shenanigans. On Wednesday they announced Denuvo Anti-Cheat, a new doodad for developers to tie into their games to bust cheats. They say it partially uses machine learning to detect cheaty behaviour–a trick used by others, including by Valve in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive–but don’t say much about its efficacy or any developers who are using it. I’m just mentioning it now so when, in the future, you see Denuvo Anti-Cheat in a game you don’t send me “WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME?” e-mails.

Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dave Irwin)

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is finally here, and even though it’s a huge departure from the Souls series, it’s still got plenty of complicated stuff and hard bosses that you may wish to know about. We’re of course happy to oblige, even if it’s just an excuse to play a highly anticipated game. So strap on your prosthetic hand, grab your katana, and let’s get started.
