Alex, Tom S and Graham push right in the wordless storyworld of Voyage, bash chitin in the bullet hell of Mushihimesama and gush over affectionate genre-hopping satire Lair of the Clockwork God.

  • Anthem, the deadest living game, has now become simply dead instead.
  • Old School Runescape’s on Steam now.
  • Diablo II: Resurrected is a fancy remaster. Look out for what Tom S, unrepentant pizza criminal, says about it on RPS in the near future.
  • Blitz speedrun mod, Median XL for Diablo II.
  • Path of Exile: gem-socketing up your arse.
  • The very mediocre Days Gone is coming to PC.
  • GIVE ME BLOODBORNE. *mutes Big Daddy Sensible*
  • What’s a homing axe for if not to throw it at seagulls?
  • It’s Limbo for Moomin fans: Voyage. A name so nondescript, I’ve had to look it up twice while writing this bullet point.
  • Alex has continued to vigorously work his MiSTer to produce a flavourful excess. Of shmups.
  • And then spilled his foul ichor all over Mushihimesama.
  • Alex would like to note that he slightly fluffed the description of the controls. He’s a fluffer.
  • On this week’s Bath Games with Tom Senior: it’s postmodern point-n-click / platformer, Lair of the Clockwork God. It’s worth the wrinkles.
  • BUT NOT THE ELECTROCUTION HAZARD. Stay safe and play on your inexplicably wet couch instead, kids.
  • £1000/week and hurrah for Tom’s skeleton.
  • Alex hasn’t been bodily submerged in water since 1985. He must preserve his natural oils!
  • Squad-based roguelike Urtuk: The Desolation. Does it need a Doom Clock?
