BEYOND CIVILIZATION: DISCOVERING FIRAXIS
While visiting Firaxis to play Civilization: Beyond Earth, I spent a couple of hours talking to members of the team and learning how the company works. As the current creators and curators of two of my favourite series of games, Firaxis rank among the most interesting studios in existence, and their history is also a large part of the history of PC strategy gaming. With one eye on the future and the other on the past, here are extended thougts on the utilitarian nature of Civilization, the role of Sid Meier and much much more. … [visit site to read more]

HEROES OF THE STORM ALPHA UPDATE: ORCS & ARTIFACT...
“Spiritual successor to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. with its lead designer onboard” seems a foolproof Kickstarter pitch but crumbs, Areal has become a comedy of errors. Beset by accusations of lies and scamming (some, at least, unfounded), developers West Games lashed out with the worst PR-ing I’ve seen, claiming everyone was out to get them rather than addressing legitimate concerns. It’s not wholly surprising, then, to see that Kickstarter have suspended the campaign. It had two days left to go, and had passed its funding goal. West Games say everyone’s out to get them, but they will persevere. … [visit site to read more]

THIEVES, CYBORGS & HITMEN: THE HUMBLE SQUARE ENIX...
$15 is a very fair price for Deus Ex, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut, Just Cause 2, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and Kane & Lynch 2, if you don’t already own them. It’s still not bad even if you do have some. That you’d also get at least a dozen other games, ranging in quality from old Thief (at the high end) to Daikatana (on the low), is just gravy. Square Enix are flogging 16 or so games cheap in the latest Humble Bundle, coming in three tiers depending on how much you fancy spending. It’s well worth a look. … [visit site to read more]

TUNNEL VISION: THE CHAIR’S THE STAR
Apologies, this latest in my ongoing Oculus Rift / VR curiosities column is a week late, due to most of the RPS staff being dead last week. On with the sterescopic show, anyway – this week I’m looking at Rift games/experiments which are based to some degree around the concept of sitting in a chair. This turns out to be far more fertile ground with reality-shifting cleverness than it might sound. … [visit site to read more]

YOU’RE PROBABLY PREPARED: CURSE OF NAXXRAMAS RELEAS...
I’m not cruising around inside The Crew’s closed beta so I’m going to analyse the content based entirely on the video below. It’s the video that has finally pulled back the curtain for me, revealing the man yanking the levers that create the illusion of ‘open world driving’. What I’ve learned is that The Crew is very much in the Ubisoft open world mould, which means lots of icons scattered across a map, a thousand different tasks jostling for attention, and what looks like just enough connective tissue to tie focal points together. But is it a grander take on Burnout Paradise or something more akin to Assetto’s Creed? … [visit site to read more]

The next installment in the COD line of games has been announced this friday, and yesterday we had some hands on with it. Being rather controversial, this installment takes place in WW3, which just ended 2 years ago. We asked the lead designer on this controversial decision, on which he said "The series is simply going back to its roots, to MW3". The game is slated for an early 2028 release.

LARGE WEAPONS CACHE FOUND AFTER STANDOFF

A storehouse of handguns and assault weapons was found in a Brisbane home after a two-day standoff with police. Authorities say eight pro-China rebels were taken into custody. The South Australian Federation was once again forced to bring in private contractors to help quell the unrest.
