  1. [Edit 16/12/14] Heists have been revealed! Info here: http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?/topic/274193-gta-online/?p=10175135 Thought we could do with a seperate thread for this now as it's bound to be very popular to say the least! Here's R*'s faq: http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/51422/some-more-details-on-grand-theft-auto-online.html Links to the official Rllmuk crews: 360 - http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/rllmuk PS3 - http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/rllmuk_ps3 Couple of basic gameplay mechanics that may not be immediately obvious (spoilered in case you want to find these out for yourself, no mission or story spoilers)

  3. Hello There! Since the announcement of the Steam Deck happened, I’ve been unseasonably excited about getting it. There’s some popular reasons to relate to – The latest PC games in an accessible and portable format, and unparalleled levels of emulation performance for the price. Having played… a lot on PC since our group of friends migrated from the halcyon days of the Xbox 360, the unspoken secret about the platform is that a lot of the best games on the platform don’t require a lot of graphics power, or money to actually fork out – Ironic, considering the hardware often touted in forum posts. But with a new wave of people onboarding with Valve’s new handheld, how can we expose such people to some of the best the PC has to offer, with Steam Deck verification chugging along on more prominent titles? Well, that’s what I’d like to explore today. Introducing the ‘BarGabe Bucket Challenge’ – Where, for the average price of a nondescript popular chicken restaurant’s family selection meal (£20 in my neck of the woods), I aim to provide you 10 pieces of Original Recipe… PC indie titles that you simply must try (I threw up in my mouth a little writing that). Either way, I enjoyed fellow forumite Treble's delve into making a PC capable of retro gaming for not a lot of money, so I wanted to do something similar with actual PC games. So, what’s the rules? - All games on this list must not be on any console format (up to now, the start of August 2022). Phones are okay, because nobody plays games on those. - The game has reports, or has been confirmed by yours truly, that it runs well on the Steam Deck. Note: be lazy, and run everything though ProtonGE7-14 or whatever the latest is. - Likewise, the game has reports, or has been confirmed by yours truly, that it’s not a big bag of shit. - When mentioning Free games, they must be free enough to play without interruption or need to spend money – No F2P models, otherwise Apex/Warframe/PoE is a thing and this list is too easy to write. - Games in their price brackets are exactly that – No Discounts, No Bundles, No Giveaways.- SOFT RULE: Try not to include existing videogame hacks and spin-offs, otherwise Streets of Rage Remake happens and this list is too easy to write. The aim, as mentioned, is to provide ten games. These will be split up in brackets of price later on with the alternatives, but for your reference, the default breakdown will be: Five games that are absolutely free, Two games that are under £3, One game for £4, and Two games for £5. With that out of the way, let’s get started with my initial foray into what could be had for some greasy shite: THE FLEX PICKS – MORE FOR YOUR MONEY While the default selection goes through the gamut of what can be procured, there’s certainly going to be those out there who might not like a certain genre, have already played something from being used to PCs in the past, or simply want more or less games to go through. And that’s quite alright – Here’s a selection of games that also fit the bill, although some might stretch the boundries of the rules originally set. FINDING FANTASTICALLY FRUGAL FROLICS (Alternative free games) SMASHING SPARE STIRLING STEAM SOMETHING-OR-OTHERS (1p to £5 Alternatives) ENQUIRIES ESTABLISHING EXTRA EXTRAVAGANT ENTERTAINMENT (Games in the £7 Range) As mentioned in the £4-7 Shit Vortex, a lot of steam games sit around the 6.99 mark to be easier to spot in the filters. But what ARE they? Well, I mostly omitted them due to the fact that it’s where the quality in games does increase dramatically – early PC ports of console games and top-tier older PC games normally languish here, alongside any of the deepest discounts trying to make some margin. So, let’s see what you would get by forgoing a couple of quid more. Note: this will include games that can openly break additional rules, but for good reason – either by being outstanding games that don’t have a home on existing handhelds, and such other reasons. Let’s get started: ..And everything else So, what the fuck would you buy, Siri? Hard to say, but I would be the type of maniac that would min-max. My top picks overall would be: Holocure, Space Funeral, Dominion, Helltaker, Rolling Bird, and The Looker for free picks (£0). Save Room (£2), Pony Island (£4), BallisticNG (£6), and finally Fallout New Vegas (£8). In fact, what I’d actually do is buy New Vegas: Ultimate Edition for a crisp fiver on CDKeys, but of course I’m accounting for pure RRP costs. Budgeting works, but don’t mug yourself by just buying on Steam. That’s what’s good about Steam. And now, onto the Q&A! So, how about you? If there’s a game that fits this extremely obscure range of rules, and is an absolute cracker, I’d like you to shout it out. Same format as I did – Name of the game, Price, Where you can get it. Tell us what it is we’re looking at (like, put up a screenshot, just find some shit on google serious dude), and if it’s good (and more than ‘yes’). Ideally, it should work on Deck (or as a surrogate, Linux), but feel free to look at both ProtonDB to find out instead. Anyway, if you got this far after reading everything in the spoiler tags, seriously, thank you for putting up with it, and I do hope you'll find something you'll greatly enjoy on your new bit of kit. tl;dr play UT98
  4. That's all you get. That's it. It was enough to make me get out of bed at 2am and scream OH MY GOD

  6. Microsoft's Reward scheme. It's alright. In about 15 months I've made just over £240 from it and I've not been doing it religiously. It's not the gravy train it once was, but it's still a simple way to get Xbox credit in return for a good use of your time while sitting on the toilet, a tenner a month or so is easy enough to attain. Interested? Of course you are! Go here https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/rewards sign up using the MS login you use for your Xbox, follow the instructions. Click on everything available for points under https://account.microsoft.com/rewards/ and also do the desktop PC Bing searches to finish off - for those it's easiest to search for a letter under image search, and middle click on 30 different options. You can do it on mobile in a browser desktop mode, for that just put in a search term 30 characters long and delete a letter, search, delete a letter and so on until you've done the searches. Once you're earned 500 points (takes a day or two, there are all sorts of welcome offers to hoover up) you'll be at Level 2 and be able to earn direct from mobile searches as well (again, via Bing - app or set it to default search on your browser), and that's your lot. Daily, you get 3 points per mobile search (up to 60) and 3 points per desktop search (up to 90), along with three "daily sets" of things to click on. They're usually 10 points each, but there will be a couple of occasions per week where it's a quiz on one of them for 30 points or similar. Do those every day, and you can earn extra points for "streaks" where every few days you'll get a bonus for your streak, which is 15 points per day no matter what really: Streak 1, Day 3 (3 days) = 45 pts Streak 2, Day 8 (5 days) = 75 pts Streak 3, Day 13 (5 days) = 75 pts Streak 4, Day 20 (7 days) = 105 pts Streak 5, Day 27 (7 days) = 105 pts Streak 6, Day 35 (7 days) = 105 pts Streak 7, Day 44 (10 days) = 150 pts There's often additional stuff to click on daily and you can also pick up a number of points a day by using the Xbox Rewards app on the Xbox One, but that's tended to be 15 points per day so is a bit crap. You can get a couple of thousand for buying particular games or hardware, but sales generally beat doing that. You also get some points back for any game you buy from the MS store regardless. The occasional email gets sent with links for additional points, usually only 50 and they're only once few weeks at most. All in all, you can get an absolute minimum of 180 points per day just from a couple of minutes searching and clicking, with some extras on top. To what end? Rewards! Live Gold subs, Game Pass subs, Xbox Credit, Microsoft Credit, and things from other vendors that are really poor value. You can easily fund a month of Game Pass every month (6800 points, 17000 for 3 months), I usually save points for credit, of which Xbox and MS Credit are identical so pick whatever makes sense (currently they're 5850 or 4410 points for a fiver, respectively - the latter is on a 30% off deal 'til the 15th of October). As of the other month, any credit gets deposited directly into the redeeming account and you've got 3 months to spend it so you can build up 30 quid in your account if you like but then you have to spend some, but it gives plenty of time to hang on and see what comes up in the various sales. Gold and Game Pass are still supplied as codes to use anywhere. Anyway, the sums above only add up to a fiver of credit a month at best though, but you can near double it up. You're allowed 5 accounts per household, and if you set up a pair of accounts as a family you can transfer 5000 points per month between them. The only thing I'd recommend is using a separate phone number to verify each if you're asked, and don't ever set up a kids account as it's a right pain in the arse with the age restrictions. If you have two pairs of accounts, you can use the other pair to gift games to yourself if you go for credit (a code for the game gets emailed). If you want to rapidly gain points it's a bit finicky but you can use a VPN and pretend you're in the US, where they generate points almost twice as fast as we can. Switch back to UK, deposit points to the paired account, switch back. Might get your account banned doing that, but it'll only be the rewards part of it so there's little to lose. Here are my accounts, this is after exactly the first two weeks in September which is when the Streaks were added to the UK side of it. I use the second account to feed 5000 points to the first every month, and I'll probably use some of the slack to buy Gamepass subs. Not sure why the second account has earned so few by this point in comparison. Same sort of thing here with another couple of accounts, but the second account is gaining points from the US side of it and you can see the difference - almost a couple of thousand points more in 14 days. Lost that streak the day after, bloody timezones did for me. Again, second account feeds 5k points per month to the first but getting it to work was a bit of a pain given the functionality wasn't available on the US side so lots of region switching in the MS account was needed as well. Think it just works now, they got the transfer functionality added the other week. There you go then, that's it. I can appreciate a lot of people can't be arsed as it does take a bit of effort to really go for it plus Bing is awful and so is the Bing app, so there's that. edit: 2018/2019 Hot Deals, tend to run from the 16th of the month for a month, or thereabouts. 2018/07: MS Credit (20% off) 2018/08: Xbox Credit (20% off) 2018/09: MS Credit (30% off) 2018/10: Gamepass (25% off) 2018/11: MS Credit (30% off) 2018/12: XBL Gold (20% off) 2019/01: Skype (25% off) 2019/02: MS Credit (20% off) 2019/03: Gamepass (25% off) 2019/04: XBL Gold (25% off) 2019/05: MS Credit (20% off) 2019/06: Xbox Credit (20% off) 2019/07: XBL Gold (25% off) 2019/08: MS Credit (20% off) 2019/09: Skype (25% off)
  7. I played this for hours last week in Sweden. (And did a couple of days of snow and ice drifting to match.) Ask away!
  8. The original Automobilista was released in 2016 and is one of the most highly regarded driving sims ever released. The new game has just released into a short early access phase on Steam at a discounted price of £24.99. As a side note, it's only come out in early access due to the Covid-19 crisis, which has affected their ability to get everything finished on time and the main release will be 1 or 2 months from now. There is a crazy expensive season pass (£71.99!!), but you can ignore that as the game is pretty much feature complete and contains a crazy amount of content already. It's primarily based on the Brazilian racing scene, where the developers Reiza are based, but the new game contains content from all sorts of international racing disciplines. It's got racing trucks! Cars (and Trucks!): Tracks: Here's a link to the Reiza forum post for current content, as the image is hard to read here: https://forum.reizastudios.com/threads/automobilista-2-all-cars-and-tracks-currently-in-the-game-beta3.8704/ And this is just what's available now, there's more to be added during early access. The game is based on the same engine as Project Cars 2, so has all the same great weather/time-of-day features, but has been hugely tweaked by the devs and already has excellent force feedback/AI etc and is fully VR compatible too. I'm very impressed with it so far, driving the 90s F1 car at Suzuka felt pretty special for example. Anyone else interested or getting it?
  9. STOP THREAD COMING TO PS4 AND XBONE It bloody well could be. This will be the next simulator from the guys who bought you netKar Pro and Ferrari Virtual Academy... Its also moddable.. Indeed netKar and FVA are considered very decent sims but theres little in the way of pictures or track details so its more about putting it out there. Heres the first movie... And it doesn't say much most other games don't do. But one thing that will froth the racing heads is their first car sign up and for that i can show you a movie.. Excited? Well i can tell you the game will feature graphical details such as Full defered rendering with shadows, HDR, bloom and even words like AO which i'm not sure what they even mean and word on the net is this is THE sim to watch. And its due in 2012, although may likely go down the same Beta route both Rfactor and pCARS as gone.

    Fall Guys

    So, Fall Guys has a release date - the 4th August. I have absolutely no idea if this will be any good or not, but a lot about it appeals to me. It's bright, colourful - looks as though it's got questionable physics and doesn't really require any sort of skill outside of persistence so it's not something that I'm going to be automatically terrible at as I close on my 40th year. ... it basically seems to be some sort of obstacle course game for 60 people based loosely on those questionably safe Japanese game shows where you need to cross a bridge while they fire a sandblasters at you from all directions. If you fail to make the course, you're out and everyone else proceeds to the next round, until there's only one player remaining. On top of all this, it features digital dress-up and is only £16 on the Steam store, which is about the amount of money I'm willing to risk on something like this on the off-chance I periodically have a bit of fun with it. If it was coming out at £44.99, I might feel a little different, but depending on how well the thing controls, this could be a lot of fun.

    Rimworld

    I did a quick search but could find a thread about it. Which surprises me given how good it turns out to be. https://rimworldgame.com/ So for those not aware. It's basically a Dwarf Fortress style game but much less complicated and more user friendly. You control a group of 3 plucky colonists who crash on a distant planet and have to survive. You grow crops, build places to live, work and play and .... stuff happens. It's all about having things happen and making stories. I just started playing recently so I'm still figuring things out but I'll just say that fire is bad. My current colony. I'm slowly replacing my fragile wooden walls with tougher stone
  13. So the most blatant Symphony of the Night rip-off is finally coming to consoles Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth is a 2020 action role-playing video game originally developed by Team Ladybug (the devs behind the not too shabby Touhou Luna Nights btw) and co-published by Playism and Why so serious? (WSS Playground) for Microsoft Windows. It is based on Ryo Mizuno's Record of Lodoss War series, taking place before the events of Diadem of the Covenant. Controlling the High Elf Deedlit, who finds herself in a strange interconnected labyrinth filled with her past foes and companions, the game focuses on exploration and searching for items and power-ups (very much) in vein of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, fighting bosses and minibosses. During gameplay, the player also locates elemental spirits and swap between each one. The idea for Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth came up when Playism was approached by an editor of the eponymous novels and review the source material. Under supervision of Mizuno, Playism decided to go with the project after seeing that both the material and artwork of Team Ladybug went together. The game is not only inspired by Symphony of the Night but also partly by Ikaruga; while both levels and gameplay were designed to reflect its story concept around exploration. Debut trailer: Console release trailer: The title was first launched via Steam Early Access in March 2020 prior to the full version and received several updates through 2020 and 2021. Versions for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and Series S are slated for a December 2021 launch.
  14. Fresh from the exceedingly grim atmosphere portrayed in Vampyr, here's another interesting, though very dark, prospect.
  15. I couldn't find a thread for this so apologies if a duplicate. After playing this at EGX last year I picked this up today for it's paltry budget price. If you liked Inside then just go buy Little Nightmares now. I'm I think about half way through and it is utterly brilliant. It's looking like being one of my favourites games so far this year and that's saying something given the year we've had already. Basically take Inside, a dash of Trapdoor, Little Big Planet and a dash of your childhood fears and you're there. I urge people to not watch spoilers and take the plunge. I just hope the rest holds up to what I've played so far. As info this runs at 60fps on PS4 Pro and at a higher res, looks fine on my standard model though.
  16. First YAY Xbox. Second oh thank fuck it looks live they;ve dropped the "real world" military vibe of it and gone more to the classsic era.
  17. Discord Server I reckon Valve could well start to wrap up the PC game publishing market over the next couple of years. I can't be arsed to buy PC games any more because they cost a bit too much and I just don't generally have time. I don't bother to look at the PC shelf in Game any more. But I've bought 3 games off Steam in the last 4 or 5 months (Sin Eps, Darwinia, X3:Reunion), for which the developers probably got more money than they would from a box anyway. I've hardly played them either, because of the time thing but I don't mind buying something for $20 which I'll just have a quick spin on every so often. It's genius for convenience and price. And the fact that every HL2 or CS:s player is right in front of the advertisig channel is a nice bonus for the developers.
  18. August 2022: Starcraft Remastered Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders Beasts of Maravilla Island Recompile ScourgeBringer Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises Going forward I'll try and keep all monthly updates to one thread (this one) and also list historical updates in a GoogleDocs list. The List: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UMVsON5XOquirLU9z-09Z1S7rvzVVuJO-jEs2RU8jh8/edit?usp=sharing This is read-only for now, just so that nobody goes in and has an accident. Unless I find out first, I leave the news of new games in your capable hands. General info: When the latest games are released, you can find more details at https://gaming.amazon.com/ Install instructions (please note step 5) -
  19. https://p-ch.jp/remaster/portal/ Holy shit. PC! I can throw out these other consoles at last! (provided the required specs are okay, and the ports are decent) Would have loved the P2s as well but they're not the easiest things to get on with. P5R will be the first one to be released, on October 21. The remaster portal also has some fine print about distribution: P3P and P4G will be digital downloads only; P5R will be a digital download for Xbox and PC, so presumably it will be available as a physical release on PS5 and Switch. Furthermore, there are no plans for any kind of free PS4->PS5 upgrade if you already have Royal on PS4. My immediate reaction on Twitter: More details when I have time, or something Original game threads: P3 | P4(G) | P5
  20. Cause no-one seems to bother to make a proper thread and/or update the ones in existence, and since the original Xbox Psychonauts is one of my all-time favourite games, I'm making a thread myself. Psychonauts 2 is the long awaited sequel to the cult classic Psychonauts, which was an awesome 3D action-platformer that saw players litterally dive into the minds of different people, leading to a colourful and insane world in which the imagination of the creators seemed to be the only limitation. The first game came out in 2005, so it's been over 15 years since this incredibly unique psychological platformer hit consoles. Thankfully, Psychonauts 2 - after all its development/publisher niggles - now really seems to be happening, and Double Fine, the creators behind the series and many other unique titles, is aiming to make it bigger and better than the original in every way. Psychonauts 2 was first officially announced back in 2015, and since then it's been a very long and very bumpy road to release, with numerous setbacks and compromises Double Fine had to make for the project. After a successful crowdfunding campaign and an acquisition from a larger company, Double Fine is all set to make Psychonauts 2 a reality sometime in 2021. There were times when it wasn't sure the project was even going to survive, but Psychonauts 2 is now pretty much inevitable at this point. The story of the sequel picks up a few years after the end of the first game, when Razputin Aquato, trained acrobat and powerful young psychic, has realized his life long dream of joining the international psychic espionage organization known as the Psychonauts. But now these psychic super spies are in trouble. Their leader hasn't been the same since he was kidnapped, and what's worse, there's a mole hiding in the Psychonauts' headquarters. Raz must use all his powers to stop the mole before they execute their secret plan — to bring the murderous psychic villain, Maligula, back from the dead! First trailer: Action trailer: Launch trailer: >> Official website. Release: August 25th, 2021. Which is awesome!
  21. I've just played through this, and it's worth doing so. A good sense of humour, great characters, classically understated writing. The puzzles are actually well thought out and obvious, with some good subtle signposting.
  22. Steam early access available now... Here's the blurb and here's a video... First and foremost, we’re building a FUN racing game with PERSONALITY. It’s all about the stuff that really matters: varied tracks, cool cars, and the defining once-in-the-lifetime moments that can be achieved only with true-to-life physics simulation. If you’re familiar with the original FlatOut experience, you already know what we’re aiming at: exhilarating racing action with sophisticated physics and damage modeling, only this time we’re upping the ante on almost every front. This is the game we envisioned way back in the early 2000s, only re-imagined for today’s technology and gaming standards. Oh, and we’ve got full-blown, straight-up demolition derbies, too, to go with your full contact racing. The cars are old, cheap, banged up, patched together, rusty… just awesome! In short, our cars ooze with STYLE! You won’t find anything like them in other racing games. We’ve got variety: everyone loves the old American heavy-hitters from the muscle car era, but we’re not neglecting the fun little European and Asian cars from the long-gone decades either. The best part is that you’ll be taking them apart and building them back up again in your garage. Need more horsepower on a budget? No problem, scour the classifieds for a bargain supercharger – just remember that a cheap bargain find might not withstand too much punishment! The career is as much about your garage and your project cars as it is about racing. Exciting Engine. Our in-house ROMU engine is a beast. A hell-bent beast that’s precision-engineered for high-speed, breakneck racing. You could not create this experience with just any engine. The ROMU engine is all about heavy metal going way too fast and crashing into stuff. At Bugbear we’re all about putting you in the driver’s seat. That’s why our engine is simulating everything, to give you great feedback on what your car is doing. You’ll feel the little bumps on the track, the weight of your car when you go over them – and most certainly you’ll feel it when you’re being dealt some damage, only that getting HURT has never before felt so good! We can’t wait to show you what we can do with today’s hardware. Now we have fully dynamic visual car damage (no predefined damage models!), and the environments are more destructible than ever before. Essentially, we can now put a ton of flying metal and dirt in the air at any given time, and we certainly will! Pre Order here.... http://nextcargame.com/ The weekend smasher deal is just the game (w Steam key) but you get early access build to play now (as seen in VVV videos). Then you get the full game once here.
  23. Really like the look of this. Out August 16th Looks stunning and enormously fun! I'm a sucker for games featuring ludicrous futuristic bloodsports though. I long for an xcom style tbt management game with a 1970s Rollerball style setting
  24. Coming Spring 2016 to Playstation 4, Xbone and PC. It's apparently going to be the final Dark Souls game and it just looks like it may well be set in Lordran.
  25. By Ubisoft Paris Official Site Release Date: March 7 ABOUT IMAGES VIDEOS Just announced at Ubi's Press conference. Ghost Recon goes Smugglers Run, Far Cry, Mercenaries, and everything else.
