PAX is a bit different this year, with PAX Australia forced to merge with PAX West into a grand online-only 9-day event. The upside: more games and more game announcements for everyone! So to make life easy, here’s all the new trailers and info from the show.
Yeeky Zhang is a Chinese student who has reimagined Star Wars from the ground up, taking inspiration from both the middle ages and steampunk and ending up with something that wouldn’t have looked out of place in Final Fantasy XII.
Over the weekend, the Washington Justice became the embodiment of Overwatch League playoff chaos. They are other teams’ spoilers and the playoff Cinderellas. They’ve gone from one of the worst regular season performances to knocking out one tournament champ and almost knocking out another. And although their chances of ultimate…
Smash-like platform fighter Rivals of Aether allows players to create custom characters and put them up for download through the Steam Workshop. One such character, modelled after the Nintendo Switch’s ubiquitous Joy-Con controllers, is pretty dang accurate. So accurate, in fact, that it even drifts like a real Joy-Con.
With the price of one of the next-generation Xbox consoles confirmed and the other one likely forthcoming as Microsoft and Sony’s big game of next-gen pricing chicken drags on, there needs to be a frank discussion about the names of these consoles. A discussion wherein I sit down with Mr. Microsoft and ask a simple question: What the fuck?
When you think of the Avengers, you think Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, and Black Widow, comic book characters who’ve been around for over half a century. The main character in the Marvel’s Avengers video game, however, has only been in existence since 2013. That makes it pretty easy…
Nintendo’s not ready to tell us more about the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but they’re fine springing a surprise prequel on us. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, due out November 20 for the Switch, is a hack-and-slash RPG set 100 years before Breath of…
In Super Mario 64, the Backwards Long Jump trick has been used to refer to a glitch that’s known as Ketsu Waapu (ケツワープ). Surely, there has to be a better English translation. Turns out, there is.
Buying a gift for someone who loves videogames shouldn’t be too hard, especially when there are so many great titles available at the moment — not to mention the amount of game-adjacent options available too. But if the person you’re buying for is more into the retro experience it can…
As part of a preview event for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare a gaggle of journalists were invited to a Q&A event with an Infinity Ward developer and a few of the actors set to star in the game. Oddly, for a Q&A event, questions weren’t from the audience but from…
If the rumours are true, we might finally know how much the Xbox Series X is set to cost.
Indie games have already made their mark on 2020. From fantastic adventures to barista puzzlers, multiplayer sports titles and more, we take a look back at all our favourite indie games of the year so far.
After six years of expansions, The Sims 4 is full of exciting adventures, stories and moments to experience. But which expansion packs reign supreme?
I’ve written before about a Fallout 4 mod that uses a complex, intertwining network of, er, kitties to make radios work. Turns out, game development is full of stories like that. World of Warcraft, for instance, is overrun with ghost bunnies.
As Mario turns a positive decrepit 35, the young, sprightly (spritely?) Sonic next year celebrates his 30th birthday. And news has slipped out that Sega is planning to celebrate the anniversary with multiple new Sonic games.
Nintendo extravagantly celebrates Super Mario Bros.’s 35th birthday, I keep coming back to one thought: But what about the greatest of all the Mario games, Mario Picross?
September 3 was the day that Zenitsu Agatsuma from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba was born. It’s not uncommon for anime fans to celebrate their beloved characters’ birthdays online by posing merch or even birthday cakes. Twitter user Momotan’s online celebration was extra special.
Nvidia’s RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070 are definitely looking like exciting PC upgrades. What they don’t have is any real updates for streamers per se. But according to the company, some massive improvements in streaming quality are just around the corner.
Despite moves by other publishers to jack up the price of their Xbox Series X and PS5 versions, CD Projekt Red has announced that it won’t be doing the same with Cyberpunk 2077.
At some point over the last week, Electronic Arts took a game already full of ads — it’s a sports game, it comes with the territory! — and added more. Only this wasn’t an in-world kinda deal, it was a literal commercial flashing around in the middle of a fight.
Metroidvanias are a dime a dozen these days. But where you don’t see them used often is in first-person shooters, despite the excellent blueprint and success had by Hexen back in the early ’90s. But Hexen’s brand of gameplay is coming back, in the form of GRAVEN.
Normally, you won’t find floating letters hanging around skateparks waiting to be collected. But yesterday, Tony Hawk encountered this strange scenario and he did what anyone who’s played Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater would do: He collected S-K-A-T-E.
Be it Sephiroth or Seymour, Zemus or Kuja, Kefka or a weird evil tree, Final Fantasy does not lack for classic villains. And while some of Final Fantasy XIV’s may not be as well-known, the MMORPG enjoys a particular knack for humanising even the most heinous antagonists, and its latest…
The beloved 2015 role-playing game The Witcher 3 will get a next-gen port that includes faster loading times, development studio CD Projekt Red announced this morning.
Today our ears will take flight with one of the very first soundtracks composed for the Super Nintendo. It was not a banger.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, out today for PC, PlayStation4, and Xbox One, is a tour de force — a rare redux that modernizes the original games while staying true to what made them such hallmarks in the first place. The remaster has also, finally, after decades, brought Tony Hawk’s…
Marvel’s Avengers, officially out today for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, send players directly to the uncanny valley of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As with the source material, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes operate uniquely, and reaching black-belt status with each character is something that only comes with time and effort….
Based on a now-deleted Xbox listing that went live overnight, it looks like Immortals Fenyx Rising, formerly known as Gods & Monsters, will be out on December 3 of this year.
Iron Harvest should, by all accounts, be just the game for me. It’s set in a universe I dig, and has a lot in common with Company of Heroes, a game I’m on record as saying is “the perfect RTS”. And yet every time I force myself to sit down…
The Crusader Kings 3 plot thickens.
This butt-trumpet-playing donkey is just the start of medieval strategy game Inkulinati.
Nintendo items are finally returning to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, starting with Mario in 2021.
A South Korean politician has proposed a bill which would exempt esports stars from disrupting their playing careers through military service. The bill, proposed by the country’s Democratic party, would allow notable figures in the fields of pop culture and arts to delay their service until they turn 30.
