Home • Videos • Bad North • 10 Tactics and hacked bits Matthew Castle RPS Video Person 15th August 2018 / 7:00PM I’m not sure if Bad North is a strategy game for the inept or the lazy. It does a lot that speaks to both: the islands you’re defending are small, you’ve only a few units to guide and those instructions don’t extend beyond ‘go there’ or ‘hide in that’. When they do get ‘there’ they auto-attack any marauders in reach and pursue the stragglers. It even slurps into slow motion when you select units, giving you extra thinking time, or time to watch diddy soldiers deliver vicious beatings. For someone so bad at multitasking I can’t even walk and drink from a can at the same time, this is an RTS game I can finally play. See the video for proof… I love how Bad North allows an idiot like me to find my inner tactician. You don’t play games and watch war movies all these … [Read more...] about Video: Bad North is an RTS that even RTS-haters might enjoy

Home • PC Game Hardware • 21 Move over GTX 1060, there's a new top 1080p graphics card in town Katharine Castle Hardware Editor 22nd February 2019 / 2:00PM Let’s get this out of the way now. The GTX 1660 Ti is a terrible, terrible name. It’s confusingly similar to Nvidia’s existing GTX 1060, implying it’s some sort of weird, halfway house between that and the GTX 1070, when in fact it’s actually part of Nvidia’s new Turing family, which is the same GPU inside their new RTX 20-series cards, making it, in effect, much more closely related to the RTX 2060 than anything else. It’s a mess, really, and isn’t helped by Nvidia’s somewhat weak justification for starting a new 16-series is because 16 is closer to 20 than 10 (seriously). But! Naming conventions aside, the GTX 1660 Ti is actually a pretty swish graphics card – and potentially even a best graphics card contender for those after top notch … [Read more...] about Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti review: The new benchmark for flawless 1080p gaming
Home • Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars • 56 Clunk, click with every trip RPS Hivemind 18th December 2011 / 1:22PM Ho ho ho! Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho! HO HO HO! Father Christmas’s demands on the sex worker industry are frankly grotesque. He is a bad, bad man. Fortunately, you can distract yourself from his ways by finding out what is behind door number 18 of our 2011 calendar of gaming goodnessment. It’s… Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars! John: With the exception of the Lego Harry Potter games, Traveler’s Tales’ format is extremely repetitive. Loosely recreate the source films in episodes of multi-character exploration and simple combat, have players collect 902 billion things, and then do it all over again in Free mode to collect the remaining 3,204 trillion things they missed. Oh, and do it so amazingly brilliantly that no one minds at all, and wants to keep on playing each one that comes out. LSW3 manages it all over again, … [Read more...] about The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day 18
Home • PC Game Hardware • A 4K titan of industry? James Archer Contributor 30th January 2018 / 1:30PM The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070Ti is a bit of a funny old thing. I’ve spent countless hours trying, and failing, to determine where this 4K-bothering card sits in Nvidia’s overall strategy, and while its position in the Nvidia hierarchy is obvious – between the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 – it seems to be more of a toned-down 1080 than a souped-up 1070. It’s got hundreds more cores than the GTX 1070 – 2432 of them, compared to just 1920, but falls short of the GTX 1080 by just 128 of them. Why, then, would you not just make that tiny extra leap to a full-fat GTX 1080? To help answer that question, I’ve got Zotac’s take, the GeForce GTX 1070Ti AMP Extreme, while Katharine has MSI’s GTX 1070Ti Gaming 8G. Together, we should hopefully find out how … [Read more...] about Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070Ti review: Better than the GTX 1080?
Home • Free PC Games • PC Game News • Company Of Heroes 2 • 13 Natalie Clayton Contributor 15th November 2019 / 6:33PM Relic used to make some absolute corkers, huh? They’ve finally found their way back in the spotlight with Age Of Empires VI, but if you were kicking about the RTS space in the 00s, they were akin to gods. Between Homeworld’s space opera spectacle and Warhammer 40k: Dawn Of War’s grimdark bombast, they somehow found time to make a little series of down-to-earth tactics games about the greatest tragedy in modern history. Company Of Heroes 2, the high point of their World War 2 operations, is free to download this weekend. Likewise, the rest of the wartime franchise has been cut to a quarter of the cost ’til Sunday evening. While contemporaries like Starcraft focussed on high-speed memorisation and counter-play, Relic’s games always felt a little more manageable. Whether on the muddy fields of … [Read more...] about Pick up Company Of Heroes 2 free this weekend, keep it forever
