  • Week in Tech: Epic End Of Year Review

    … By Jeremy Laird on December 18th, 2014 at 9:00 pm. It’s that time of year when the press releases stop flowing, the new product dries up and yours truly runs out of novel kit to verbally clobber.

  • Fullbright: Tacoma’s BioShock Similarities “Not Deliberate”

    … By Alec Meer on December 16th, 2014 at 12:30 pm. Gone Home developers Fullbright have shed a little more light on their so-far cryptic follow-up, Tacoma. The space station-set exploration title is due for release next year, but gave away little in its announcement trailer. In a forthcoming interview with RPS, Fullbright’s Steve Gaynor revealed…

  • Microsoft: “It’s Time To Talk About Gaming On Windows”

    … Graham even ran a history of all the times you’ve made these claims in the past, and look where we are now: in exactly the same place. Or are we? Today’s claim comes in the form of a twitter reply from Xbox and Microsoft Studios boss Phil Spencer*, but the simple line “I’ll be focusing more on what we are doing on Win10 in January, it’s time for us…

  • Freespace Boardgame: Sort-Of Interplay Sort Of Returns

    … Freespace. Wot no Clayfighter 4? Miniatures game Freespace Tactics is on Kickstarter now, looking for $75,000. It’s conceptually appealing, and seems to have something in common with the rather nice X-Wing miniatures game, but it’s probably not what folk are hoping Interplay would do, skinsuit or not. This isn’t quite Interplay, though…

  • New Games For Old Drops: There’s To Be A Steam Auction

    … By John Walker on December 12th, 2014 at 12:21 am. From today, until next Thursday, Valve has just announced they’re running a Steam Auction.

  • Week in Tech: Buy Yourself The Gift Of Graphics

    … trying to say is that it’s nearly Christmas, graphics cards look cheap, so I suggest if you’re struggling for frame rates, now’s a good time to give yourself a treat and knock that particular problem on the head. Meanwhile, Samsung has wheeled out its first affordable SSD with 3D memory. Sounds exciting. But is it? Before we begin, a routine…

  • Interview: Julian Gollop On How He Remade Chaos

    … By Alec Meer on December 9th, 2014 at 10:50 am.

  • Mojang’s Scrolls Is Now Elder Enough For A Full Release

    … By Alec Meer on December 5th, 2014 at 4:00 pm. It’s probably, let’s be honest here, not a major part of why Microsoft put down All The Money to acquire Mojang earlier this year, but Minecraft follow-up Scrolls remains a going concern. Next week, the digital CCG/boargame shall finally be shorn of its long-held ‘beta’ title and become a fully…

  • Rowy Horror Show: Saints Row IV The Musical

    … By Alec Meer on December 4th, 2014 at 2:00 pm. Demonstrating an impressive refusal to stop being absolutely ridiculous, Saints Row 4’s about to offer up a standalone expansion named Gat Out Of Hell, in which the gang come to bust you out of Satan’s pile. This much we already knew, but getting to witness the heights of its divine (or quite…

  • inXile Tease Another cRPG Comeback: Bard or Baldur?

    … By Alec Meer on December 4th, 2014 at 11:05 am. With two successful Kickstarters under its belt, one well-received RPG sequel out in the wild and one spiritual RPG sequel on its way, what next for Wasteland and Tides of Numenera dev inXile? Sadly, it doesn’t involve ditching any crazy capitalisation. It does, however, involve bringing back…
