What’s the worst thing you’ve done for an achievement?

In the latest edition of Ask RPS, our new mailbag feature where RPS supporters pose us questions that we then answer in public posts for everyone to enjoy, we’re turning our gaze to that loved and loathed staple of the video gaming landscape: achievements. Ah, achievements. Never mind if they’re good or bad. Today, we’re remembering the terrible things we’ve done to actually get them. The question comes courtesy of Fachewachewa, who asked: What’s the worst thing you’ve done for an achievement? Or more generally, a time you were focused on a specific goal in a game, reached it (or…

Alan Wake Remastered review: a handsome lick of paint on a decade-old classic

Long before Jesse Faden and the denizens of Control were losing their minds over sentient fridges and rubber ducks, Alan Wake was doing unholy battle with possessed logging tractors and combine harvesters. In hindsight, it seems obvious that these two worlds would eventually collide in Remedy’s newly established Wake-iverse – such is their shared love of shadowy, flying objects – but back in the dark days of 2010, little did we know that Remedy’s tortured horror writer would be making such a big comeback eleven years later. Well, at least he is over on consoles. While the original Alan Wake…

Alan Wake Remastered won’t feature real-world product placement

Verizon, Lincoln, and Energizer are out. Product placement has been removed from Alan Wake Remastered, which means you won’t see brands such as Verizon in the game. This is due to expired deals, according to a PR representative for the game speaking to ScreenRant. In the adverts’ place, there will be generic in-universe branding. For those who didn’t play the 2010 original, it featured quite a few real-life brands, and some even factored into gameplay. The product placement wasn’t too in your face, as Remedy did its best to help make the game world feel a bit more real with…

All right folks, hands up: who’s ever been excited about that hip new video game, only to find their PC’s so old and decrepit that simply trying to turn the camera risks smothering your monitor screen with remnants of your leftover lunch?
