Yakuza 0 relaunches crash-fixing patch

Sega have relaunched the first patch for Yakuza 0, aiming to fix several crashes in their delightful dad simulator, after its initial launch last week went a bit wonky.

Monster Hunter: World stomps onto PC

Capcom have just launched Monster Hunter: World on Steam, giving their dinosaur-fighting action-RPG series its long-awaited western PC debut. Going by how the game has rocked Steam's sales charts for several weeks before even launching, it's one many PCnauts have been keen to see. And now it's here. Out now.

This "social adequacy" clause has allowed these symbols to be used in other artistic mediums but wasn't previously applied to video games (which only became art, as we all know, through BioShock Infinite…

Valve chap says last night’s Steam sexy search filtering was a mistake

Those with their ear to the pipes might've heard rumblings last night about Steam's search feature hiding all games with a whiff of wallopers and/or jubblies, seemingly a huge break from Valve's supposed stance of not restricting content on Steam. A variety of games, from jiggly-bedicked party platformer Mount Your Friends 3D to steamy comedy Ladykiller In A Bind, were briefly filtered out from everyone's…

We remember Manager Man, the mascot of Football Manager

After over a decade of leading Football Manager, watching from the sideline and becoming increasingly animated on the box art, series mascot Manager Man has been fired.

It's scandalous. Publishers Sega have…
