Half-Life - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

While Black Mesa may be rebuilding Half-Life‘s world on a slightly more modern foundation, modder James “MrGnang” Cockburn reckons there’s some life in Valve’s old GoldSrc engine yet. Half-Life: Echoes is an impressive mod released last Friday, putting the player in the shoes of a scientist elsewhere in the Black Mesa facility when everything goes to hell. Cue the usual running, gunning, fighting soldiers and weird aliens, all while marvelling at some genuinely impressive architecture that I just hadn’t thought possible. Just be warned – this one pulls no punches.

From bleak sci-fi to kinky bondage sex-comedy, and now an 80s glam-tinged road trip RPG? You definitely can’t accuse Love Conquers All Games of being one trick ponies. I’ve seen Get In The Car, Loser! doing the rounds on Twitter for a while, with a fair bit of buzz surrounding it, but only now does it have a store page up on Itch. It’s the latest from the creators of Ladykiller In A Bind, and reminds me in equal parts of Final Fantasy 15 and Valkyrie Profile – it’s due out later this year.

Total War: THREE KINGDOMS - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

While most of what I know about ancient Chinese history comes from the Dynasty Warriors games, that’s a pretty good foundation to start with, judging by Total War: Three Kingdoms‘s new trailer below. We get to take a whirlwind tour of its impressively pretty campaign map, courtesy of warlord Sun Jian. If nothing else, it’s very pretty, and it being rendered in-engine gives us a brief peek at what the game will look like, assuming you have a decently beefy PC.

There’s just one week to go until Nvidia’s big Gamescom surprise, but will it be the arrival of their new Nvidia Turing graphics cards or something else entirely – something, perhaps, like a bolt from the blue shock announcement about their upcoming Big Format Gaming Displays? We won’t know for sure until next Monday, but just in case Nvidia do pull a fast one on us, here’s a quick refresher on everything we know about Nvidia’s BFGDs so far, including who’s making them, what their specs are, and how they might finally make PC gaming in the living room a reality.

Insurgency: Sandstorm - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Dominic Tarason)

While I’ll never be fully comfortable playing games set in the contemporary forever-war continually in the background of modern life, I must admit that Insurgency is a solid little shooter. Originally based on the Source mod of the same name, it offers realistic class-based tactical manshootery both competitive and co-op. For the next two days, it’s free to grab in order to promote its upcoming sequel, Insurgency: Sandstorm, due out next month. Grab it now on Steam, keep it forever.

MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

While you’re busy trying to rummage in monsters’ guts to make a new hat from them, Capcom are currently rummaging in Monster Hunter: World‘s technoguts to try and solve technical problems that are preventing many players from gutdiving. Capcom said today that they have “been receiving numerous reports that players are experiencing connection errors after every several times they depart on quests.” That’s a far more generous summary of the server situation than many I’ve seen from players who aren’t best pleased with a 50 game they can’t properly play. Capcom do say they’re investigating this, as well as several other problems, but don’t give an idea of when we might expect fixes.

Five years ago, co-op FPS crime ’em up Payday 2 was a scrawny little thing with only a few missions to its name. Now it’s a massive, still expanding ball of hyper-criminality featuring permanent crossovers with five film universes, arguably putting Reservoir Dogs in John Wick canon. To celebrate its fifth anniversary today, developers Overkill are rolling out a week of free updates, starting with cyber-masked heister lady Joy, formerly exclusive to the Switch version. The Ultimate edition of the game (including almost all DLC) is also 80% off for the week.

Online games live and die by their audience. Give players the tools to create unique stories and foster closer relationships and there s no guarantee they ll go out of their way to use them. Often they resort to their baser instincts.

This was arguably the case when Rare released their pirate sandbox game Sea of Thieves, back in March. It was an extremely common occurrence for new players to load in and be instantly sunk on sight by another group of pirates, griefing simply because they could. But, over the following months, there s been a noticeable shift in the game, with the player base evolving beyond just PvP. Now, players are breaking out of the monotonous grind to Pirate Legend and taking advantage of the game s full potential, creating memorable stories and community events out on the seas. This is in part due to a frustration with the base game, and the lack of explicit story and community content delivered by Rare.

Yakuza 0 - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Alice O'Connor)

Sega have relaunched the first patch for Yakuza 0, aiming to fix several crashes in their delightful dad simulator, after its initial launch last week went a bit wonky. ‘Patch 1’, as it’s snappily titled, first hit last Monday but Sega reverted it within hours after discovering it caused several unintended new bugs. After a week of fixing and testing, here it is again, come to spare us all the anxiety of being separated from our two dads.

I imagine many of you see the word video in the headline and assume it s just going to be Noa or me gabbling over game footage. And while gabbling/footage hybrids do make up 98% of its output, the RPS Video Department knows when to put a sock in it. One such occasion is the arrival of Gris, a wistful adventure that new Spanish outfit Nomada Studio is calling a narrative platformer. I think this means you jump about a bit but the jumping is secretly a metaphor for something sad. Why not watch this gorgeous 15 minute demo – free of any foghorn-like analysis – and work it out for yourself… (more…)
