Is This Simply the Wrong Time for Hatred?

Is This Simply the Wrong Time for Hatred?

It’s time for POLITICS. Sort of. Not really. Here’s recent discussion magnet, controv-em-up Hatred and why we think this pretty despicable game’s existence is endangers the future of our beloved industry! Heck.

We go HANDS ON with Turtle Rock’s co-op monster kill ’em up Evolve in this playtest of the recent alpha! What Rob be utterly feeble at video games whilst also proving he a brain made of soggy cardboard! Hooray!

Parkour for the Course? | Feature

We make brash, nonsensical doomsday predictions about the future in a manner by which the Daily Mail have hailed ‘not too bad, keep at it and maybe we’ll make snakes of you yet’. Sort of. Jump inside and find out what Rob thinks of all the parkour in Titanfall and Dying Light and explains why it DEFINITELY spells trouble for us all! Sort of. Okay not really. Early Access Preview | PC

Nekro Early Access Preview | PC

PREVIEWS. We do those too, seemingly, and here we see Rob preening about in a coloured cloak and raising some demons to do the things he can’t be bothered to do in Nekro! Find out what he thought in this, our Early Access Preview!

VIDEO | Bioshock Infinite: Clash in the Clouds Test Run

It’s VIDEO time folks. Dive right in to watch Rob be exceedingly bad at video games. Like Mr. Kipling. Only opposite. And there’re less cakes. So it’s bad news all round really. Inside, Rob has a fleeting bash at Bioshock Infinite’s arena mode DLC Clash in the Clouds! COR.

Xbox 720 Specs Killed My Father (And Kidnapped My Interest)

The next generation is so close we can taste it! It tastes like a pavement, whatever you do, don’t try to taste it.

The Video Game Awards 2011

Respawn in…5 at the VGAs! And by ‘at the’ we mean, ‘make Rob stay up till 3am streaming it over the interwebs!’ And I’m even aware that makes no sense whatsoever. EXCELLENT HEY! Trawl through this intensive coverage of this rollercoaster event, featuring some Oh-mazing announcements, Charlie Sheen, Hideo Kojima and MORE. Now with HIGHLIGHT TRAILERS! Hoorah. Citizen Alpha 3.0 Delayed to the Surpise of No One

Star Citizen Alpha 3.0 Delayed to the Surpise of No One

Star Citizen’s latest update has been delayed, so with this news, I thought I’d scribble some backstory on what it is, and how I faded from hyper-ventilating excitement to cynical indifference.

The Stanley Parable | Gone Playing

ANOTHER Gone Playing? Yes, two of the same thing in a row, but we’ve not had anything to say all month, presumably because Rob’s been running our Stanley into the ground. Sort of. Watch as he coagulates with shameless joy in this post, and remember the days when he used to DISLIKE things with misty eyes! Why not.

A Short Letter to Phil Fish

We’re pretty good at childish spats here at Respawn. It’s an art we’ve perfected to a truly scientific extent, so much so that people don’t invite us to parties for fear of how much better we’ll be at having a childish spat than them. Still, tragic social ramifications of being cognitively challenged aside, here’s something we think Phil Fish should read, regarding the playground etiquette that stained everyone’s shirts last week.

Microsoft Make One Big Mess of Xbox Reveal Show

Rob excitedly glued his eyeballs to his monitor to drink in the newly revealed Xbox One, but it seems like Microsoft hired a gazelle to put the show together for them. Here’re the mistakes they made, the big disappointments and why E3 could really be make or break for Microsoft.

The Volume of the Voice: Getting to Grips with Mike Bithell’s Volume

Mike Bithell’s new ‘un Volume gets a good hard grilling this week, sort of, and during the process Rob stumbles across the real importance of good voice acting, no matter the type of game! Hurl yourself in bodily and HAVE A READ why not.

Nvidia Think You Should Buy a PC: Cataclysmic Revelation Shocks Nation

After tailing off on some story from several millenia ago, in which he also fleetingly mentioned Nvidia, Rob decides to show rampant displeasure in the face of other people SAYING THINGS. Namely Nvidia, who, by and large, manage to say very little in their interviews. More inside kids, get inside and slap your eyelids on this ‘un eh! EH!

VIDEO | Nether Let’s Play

VIDEO | Nether Let’s Play

Would you believe it? Nether! This week’s Let’s Play sees Rob trying and failing to get used to the pace of a survival game, as he trudges from corner to corner boisterously fog-horning about not knowing what’s going on and where is he and what time is it. Dive in and watch it then! PLAYING | Oquonie


I’ve been playing Oquonie, among other things, and its unique, abstract world is something to get lost in. That’s both your character, and your sense of things that aren’t written by David Firth.

The Stuff of Legends: Rayman Legends Review

TWO reviews in the space of a month? We’re mad right? Mad! Brian Mad from Madcastle! Jump on in to find out what on Earth we thought of Ubisoft’s latest loveable platformer Rayman Legends; does it compare to Origins? Is there ANYTHING different?

Respawn at Insomnia54

Don’t know what Insomnia is? Well, neither did we; other than that debilitating inability to sleep. Turns out it’s also a pretty great gaming show in Coventry. Here’s what happened at our first Insomnia experience! PLAYING | Rocket League

NOW PLAYING | Rocket League

Rob’s been playing Rocket League, in some sort of desperate attempt to get away from The Witcher for 40 seconds. Can he possibly enjoy a FOOTBALL CAR game?

Gaming and Narcotics: Opportunity, Fear and Desperate Pleas for Games

Gaming and Narcotics: Opportunity, Fear and Desperate Pleas for Games

Rob masks a desperate plea for a game based on Phillip K Dick’s mind-malfunctioning A Scanner Darkly behind some nonsensical rambling about drugs and video games and the inevitable downfall of the human race! Perfect Sunday evening reading by anybody’s standards. So long as those anybodies don’t have standards of course.
