Every other Monday, Dominic gives you a reason to dust off one of your old games and dive into its mods with Modder Superior. The Arma series has a bit of a double identity. On one hand, you’ve got a hard-as-nails military sim shooter, pitting the fallibility of human senses up against a world populated by laser-accurate AI. On the other hand, you’ve got the ultra-moddable sandbox that spawned DayZ and (in turn) the battle royale genre as we know it. The Apelegs are connected to the Arma bone, apparently. Arma 3, with its Steam Workshop integration and flexible tools has given players the means to create whole new worlds of conflict. With Bohemia Interactive finally focusing on future games, leaving the game in its player’s hands, here’s some of the biggest and best mods that Arma 3‘s community are field testing today. (more…)
The best shooters endure. While other genres warp beyond recognition, there is something solid about the first-person shooter that makes it as dependable as a nice big AK-47. Maybe it s the gung-ho simplicity – look down a barrel and pull the trigger. It’s as fun to fire a double-barrelled shotgun from an early 90s FPS as the slick shotties of today. For that reason, this list runs the gamut from genre classics to those released in the last year. There’s bound to be something for you in this, our list of the best 50 FPS games on PC. Let s lock and/or load. (more…)

Rust news:

https://files.facepunch.com/s/a964d7d66010.jpg Big announcements this month! Rust console is coming, Instrument DLC, Charitable Rust, and submarines? https://rust.facepunch.com/blog/community-update-218
It's fun to get a look at how the sausage is made in games, and Rust developer Garry Newman opened the doors to his butcher shop in a blog post today. The post reveals that Newman has wanted for years to let players look down in first-person and see their own legs while playing Rust, rather than traveling through the world as a disembodied camera in the same manner as most first-person games. "We have a skeleton with the player model on it (which is what casts the localplayer shadow)," the post reads. "We want to show it, but we also want to manipulate the bones in a way that they don't conflict with the player's view. But if we do that the shadow would be all fucked." The solution Newman finally came up with? Rendering a different model. "So what we do is basically copy the third person model (which creates the shadows) and manipulate the bones. The manipulation isn't anything complicated, it's just a case of tucking shit behind the camera," Newman writes. Above: Gif made from video at Garry.tv "There's a couple of extra things we have to do. When you're crouched and look down, we pull the viewmodel back so it doesn't clip through your knees." While that solution does indeed look convincing from a first-person perspective (above), it's both funny and a little alarming to see what's happening behind the scenes to achieve it: Above: Gif made from video at Garry.tv As you can see, the player's shadow is intact and both it and their body will look perfectly normal to them, but "tucking shit behind the camera" technically turns the player into a weird stretched taffy monster. It's reminiscent of the disturbing gymnastics required to let players peer over cover in Crysis. You can read the full post for more behind-the-scenes magic (there's a reason the models above don't show the player's arms) at Newman's blog. And while we're on the topic of Rust, we also learned this week that it'll release its first paid DLC next month, which will contain 10 new playable musical instruments.
Rust is getting some more new stuff next month, and for the first time ever you'll have to pay something extra for it. The first premium DLC for Rust will feature playable musical instruments, 10 of them in all, including a piano, drums, sousaphone (pictured above), and yes, even a cowbell. The premium DLC will cost $10, though Rust's devblog says it will be initially discounted. The DLC will arrive on December 5, though the instruments are available now to play with and try out for free on Rust's staging server branch. These aren't just instruments where you hold down a key and they automatically play a song. "We've created a whole new control system to play the instruments," the devblog says. "You can now bind the standard note range (A, B, C, D, E, F, G) to any key. From there you can bind sharp and octave modifier keys which allow you to play over 20 notes on some instruments." This new music system will be applied to Rust's existing acoustic guitar as well when the DLC arrives. You can also plug in a MIDI device and play some of the instruments in real time.   Here's a look at some (nude) players in a jam session: Even if you don't purchase the DLC, there are still ways to join in on the fun. If a DLC owner crafts a musical instrument for you (or if you murder someone and take theirs) and you'll be able to play it.  And if you're worried about being hounded at all hours of the night by roving sousaphone and xylophone players, no need to worry. Facepunch's community support manager Errn tweeted that the instruments will have their own dedicated volume slider. Here are the rest of the instruments in the DLC: The Plumber's Trumpet The Canbourine The Shovel Bass The Wheelbarrow Piano The Junkyard Drumkit The Pan Flute The Jerry Can Guitar The Cowbell Xylobones
If you're like me, then you'll firmly believe that all games could be vastly improved with the addition of a melodious hooter that you can blast a proper tune out of when spirits are low. And developer Facepunch Studios is clearly on the same page because it's just announced that Rust's first "premium" DLC will add a whole new range of musical instruments. Rust already has one playable instrument in the form of the acoustic guitar, but the brutal multiplayer survival game's entirely wholesome new paid DLC will introduce an additional 10 - something that fans seem to have been genuinely clamouring for. In total, Rust's instrument pack will usher in the wheelbarrow piano, junkyard drum kit, the shovel bass, the xylobones, the sousaphone, cowbell, canbourine, jerry can guitar, pan flute, and, finally, the plumber's trumpet. Which is not the delightful euphemism it might initially seem to be. Pictures of each and every one can be found in the official announcement post. Read more
Yep, that's right: the game that made me fear the sound of helicopters is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 next year, so even more people can experience the nudist, rock-bashing trauma fun. Hurrah! Announced last night during Microsoft's X019 presentation, survival sim Rust is arriving on consoles sometime in 2020, although we don't yet know key details such as whether cross-play will be a feature. Things could get interesting if a batch of fresh newbies are released onto PC servers. Developed by Facepunch and released in 2013, Rust has consistently been doing well on Steam - with player numbers reaching a concurrent player peak of over 93k back in July, with around 8m players in total. It's a game of complete anarchy and resource-grabbing, with highly aggressive bears and equally aggressive players. Having said that, I've also had some very stupid adventures in Rust, including an episode where my friend and I went on a revenge murder spree. Read more

{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/5377070/8e73335bc5fadd8207bfca3a4c4f7ad5601ddeca.jpg HALLOWEEN COMES TO RUST From now til November 7th 2019 we have a bunch of spooky new features... NEW NPCS: KILLER MUMMIES AND SCARECROWS Get ready to go up against creepy mummies and scarecrows spawning around the world, armed with pitchforks, butcher knives and chainsaws. Good night and good luck - you’ll need it. NEW EVENT: TRICK OR TREAT! During each ingame day in Halloween you’ll be able to join trick or treat hunts for as much candy as you can get your hands on (while everyone else tries to do the same, naturally). Once you have enough candy you can craft loot bags that open to reveal goodies, or collect 10 loot bags to upgrade from small to medium and so forth, with chances for better loot each time. HALLOWEEN ITEMS There’s exclusive Halloween-themed items like graveyard fences and cobwebs to decorate your base. We’ve also got a bunch of Halloween exclusive content both new and old on the Rust Item Store. Spookify your base with candle packs and skull door knockers. Impress your teammates with your bloody Surgeon Scrubs. We also welcome back some favourites like Strobe Lights and the one and only Fogger 3000 fog machine.
Survival sandbox Rust continues to grow and change, having added hot air balloons, electricity, and even underwear in the past 12 months. Back in June, horseback riding was added, which set the stage for this most recent and extremely important update to Rust: Horse armor. (And no, you don't have to pay $2.50 for the horse armor. It's free.) Horse armor will help protect your steed from incoming damage as well as providing additional protection for the rider ("This might seem like it isn't very realistic, but it doesn't matter," reads the dev blog). There are two types of horse armor, one made of wood, and the other (and far more fun) is the armor made of road signs seen above. You can also craft horseshoes, which will make your horse faster, and saddlebags, which will increase your horse's inventory size but reduce their max speed. As is always the case with Rust updates, there's plenty more to it, including changes and improvements to the electrical system, tweaks to weapon balance, exploit fixes, and more. View all the changes here.

We often publish uplifting articles on here about the positive impact of games. Whether that be a Skyrim-playing grandma immortalised in the next Elder Scrolls game, or a memorial to a modder's dog - games have an incredible power to heal and soothe. This story's about vengeance. Specifically, it's about my adventures in Rust, the survival sim which had a big moment a few years ago and has quietly but consistently bubbled away on Steam ever since. Read more
