The RPS Selection Box: Liam’s bonus games of the year 2022

Oh. OK. I guess it’s time for me to publicly confess which games I voted for in this year’s advent calendar but that didn’t get it, and without the usual protection of anonymity granted by group lists. Listen: please don’t judge me. I just want to say that up top before you find out where I live and start sending me pizzas or something. I am fallible. You cut me, I bleed red. I put my bread in the toaster one slice at a time. Anyway, with that out the way, here’s a list of things I liked this year…

Every last RPS Bestest Best review of 2022

I’ve been looking back over an entire year of RPS reviews and, well, we’ve written a lot. Over the past twelve months, the RPS treehouse and our merry band of freelancers have reviewed 168 games in total – and that includes early access reviews, PC-port reviews, group reviews, reviews-in-progresses, and your common or garden fully-fledged reviews. 168! Damn. Even though game releases are still suffering from pandemic pushbacks, 2022 has been a busy year for games. There wasn’t a huge number of big name releases – although the ones that did come out were plenty big enough – but, as…

What’s better: physics freakouts or beautiful food?

Last time, you decided that a really big unreal place is better than going undercover. Good. Very good. Great deciding, reader dear. I’m wholly impartial, of course, but I am glad you haven’t forced me to come up with some contrived reason to jam a really big unreal place back into the running. We can continue. This week, it’s a question of jarring vs. juicy. What’s better: physics freakouts or beautiful food? Read more

20% of Monster Hunter Rise players have already bought Sunbreak DLC

Capcom’s latest Monster Hunter expansion proves that there’s endless appetite for one of gaming’s most enduring series. It’s been a good week for Monster Hunter. After the staggering success of Monster Hunter Rise on both PC and Switch, the ground was likely primed for the game’s expansion, Sunbreak, to do good numbers. But, even for a series that enjoys as much popularity as Monster Hunter, the attach rate of the DLC is super high. “Capcom released a demo version prior to launch, garnering praise and attention for the title, which resulted in shipments of over 2 million units globally,” Capcom…

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak – Could this be the series’ best expansion yet?

With the changes coming to Monster Hunter: Rise in Sunbreak, one of Capcom’s best games is going to get even better. It’s no secret I’m really into Monster Hunter: Rise: as well as pumping over 100 hours into the game on Switch, I started playing the most recent addition to the action-RPG series even more intently when it came to PC earlier this year. A quick rundown of all the information we’ve learned about Sunbreak over the last few months. Sure, it doesn’t quite have the depth (or breadth) of Monster Hunter: World, but Rise does everything I want from…

Monster Hunter Rise is on PC now, but not without hiccups

Nine months after its debut on Nintendo Switch, Monster Hunter Rise today launched on PC. Capcom’s latest lizard-skinning simulator is a good’un, and what we played of it pre-release seemed like a solid PC port. However, now the game is out in the world, some would-be players are being blocked out by a bug which doesn’t let them even start a new save. Still, the majority of folks seem to be quite happily hollowing out dogs to make slippers. Read more
