Battlefield 3 is already a terrific game, but the Back To Karkand expansion adds more explosive content. Here is the new “Strike At Karkand” trailer, showing us our first extended look at gameplay footage.

Minecraft Xbox Live Trailer

Posted on Nov 21, 2011 12:55:37 AM

It’s been a looooong long wait but Minecraft finally comes to the home console!

In an explosion of streamers and cheers, the Mojang team officially launched Minecraft 1.0 as a final(ish) product today from the stage of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, kicking off this weekend’s “MineCon” convention. Surprising absolutely no one, the servers selling the game have been crashing from server loads intermittently. Oops!

Just as soon as they’re more stable, the launch version of Minecraft can be purchased on PC and Mac for $26.95. Maybe for now you could spend some time with that mobile version of the world builder? Or just keep refreshing. That’s probably a better idea.

When it comes to enemies, weapons are only the beginning! Put on your boots and jump on their heads! Toss ‘em around to knock the rest down! Become truly unstoppable with awesome power-ups!

Through its world, characters and missions, Retro City Rampage lampoons the entire 8-bit era –from its games to the TV, movies and pop culture!

The King of Fighters XIII Perfect Combos

Posted on Nov 16, 2011 07:41:18 PM

Due out November 22 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the console version of The King of Fighters XIII seeks to address many concerns fans have voiced about the franchise. Concerns like lengthy matches, addressed in the video by massive combos that take out an entire life bar.

Yes, it does take a great deal of coordination to actually pull any of these moves off successfully, so players shouldn’t run into them defenseless all that often. That is unless the player is me. This short video summarizes just about every The King of Fighters match I’ve played in my long and painful career, hence the popular saying. “The key to victory is just a Fahey away”.

Silent Asshat: Stealth Bastard

Posted on Nov 15, 2011 07:58:36 PM

Taking up my trusty, weatherbeaten pickaxe’o’electronic delights, I chip another gleaming nugget from the mountain of indie games lurking in the RPS inbox. What new gem will I mine this time? It has a fine name indeed. That name is Stealth Bastard: Tactical Espionage Arsehole. It has a core philosophy, and that philosophy is “why does stealth need to be so slow?” Turns out, it doesn’t.

Bits of Portal, bits of Super Meat Boy, bits of Splinter Cell, yet a tone and character entirely of its own, and with none of all that tedious waiting around business. Having nosed at Alpha Protocol for the first time over the weekend and run screaming from its horrific hacking minigame (don’t worry, I’ll persevere), I can’t tell you how grateful I am to just have to press a button and watch a computer’s digital defences crumble before me.

EA Smashes Battlefield’s Banhammer With Relish

Posted on Nov 14, 2011 01:14:44 PM

Possibly in response to the XP exploit discovered last week, Electronic Arts has touted the hundreds of summary bannings it has handed out in Battlefield 3 and said it has nooooo problem handing out more. You want to boost for XP repairing an EOD robot, you little shits? I’ve got your ass for the rest of your natural born life if you don’t watch your step.

“We’ve banned hundreds of hackers this week alone, and we are determined to punish the players who play without integrity,” the official Battlefield Twitter account said in a series of three tweets. “A patch is just around the corner, and we will continue to ban cheaters. We take it seriously. That is our attitude here at Battlefield. We have zero tolerance for cheating players and are banning more all of the time.”
