Destiny 2’s Solstice Of Heroes event kicks off next week, bringing some delightfully glowy armour

If there's one thing I miss about Destiny 2, it's the armour. I'm a firm supporter of the whole "you can't save the world if you don't look good" thing. What I do not miss about this game, however, is how much you have to grind to look that good in the first place. Destiny 2's Solstice Of Heroes event kicks off on August 11th,…

The Foxer

Roman thinks you’re ready for Rithmetic Foxers. Below are three equations disguised as picture sequences. Each pic represents a number (For example a photo of The Flying Scotsman might signify 4472, 462, or 3). It’s your job to identify the mathematical operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication or division) indicated by the lettered squares. The BIDMAS rule applies. If a solution involves brackets or indices, Roman will…

Hood: Outlaws & Legends is a new PvPvE multiplayer heist game based on Robin Hood

Though Robin Hood was famously surrounded by his Merry Men, the newly-announced Hood: Outlaws & Legends is “a dark and gritty re-imagining of the Robin Hood legend”. Unveiled last night during Sony's State Of Play stream, Hood is a heist game where two teams of four aim to nab the same prize, fighting both AI guards and each other - a bit like Hunt: Showdown…

Control’s Alan Wake expansion comes out this month

So it is, the rumours are true. After months of speculation on whether or not Alan Wake might make an appearance in Control, Remedy Entertainment have revealed that he will indeed be in the game's next DLC, AWE. You won't have to wait long to see him either, because it releases on August 27th. For a hot second, I thought that AWE might stand for…

Spelunky 2 arrives next month, but probably not for PC

The good news? Spelunky 2 comes out next month! Hooray! The bad news is that, in all likelihood, the spelunkin' sequel's release will be exclusive to Sony's PlayStation tellybox. Boo, hiss, and all that rubbish. But while a PC release date remains as elusive as an eggplant, we can still enjoy a deeper dive into Spelunky's caves with developer Derek Yu.

Serious Sam 4 sends its release date screaming into September

Call yourself Serious Sam 4, do ya? Well, you don't seem so "serious" about this launching in August lark to me. Unfortunately, the next entry in Croteam's run-and-gun-and-scream-and-explode 'em up won't launch this month as planned, with the devs today announcing that Sam's fourth shooting gallery has been delayed into late September. It takes time to pack 100,000 baddies onto one screen, after all.

Phantasy Star Online 2 has finally arrived on Steam

It might've taken eight years for Phantasy Star Online 2 to make it to the West, but fortunately, the jump from the Windows Store to Steam only took the Japanese MMO a mere couple of months. Sonic Team's free-to-play anime romp has finally found a place on Valve's shelves, making it easier than ever to hop in and bash a load of goblins in a…

Apex Legends digs in for a new season with new legend Rampart

Playing defensively rarely pans out in Apex Legends - at least, it's never panned out for me. But then, I've never had a whopping great turreted machine gun to help lock down Skulltown. That's all set to change later this month with the addition of scrappy mechanic Rampart and her life partner Sheila, arriving as part of Apex Legends' sixth season on August 18th. Sheila…

I love this man’s enthusiasm for an innovative AI mocap technique

I like neat AI stuff. The prospect of making machines autonomously clever (whatever that means) is a fundamentally exciting concept to me, even though there are plenty of ways in which AI is being and will be used to make people's lives worse. I'm therefore a prime target for Two Minute Papers, a YouTube channel that takes interesting research papers and presents them with hyper-infectious…

3 Out Of 10 is a weekly playable sitcom, free on Epic

We've got sitcoms based on game development, so hows about repaying the favour with a playable comedy series? That's the idea behind 3 Out Of 10, an interactive animated series from Mothergunship developers Terrible Posture Games. Debuting on the Epic Games Store today, each week should see the release of a new episode following the hijinks of a hapless gamedev studio trying to create their…

Impostor Factory’s new trailer raises more questions than answers

An ominous shadow falls across the Earth, cast by a tentacled beast that reaches out to grasp the planet. Impostor Factory, the final game in the To The Moon series, is not effing around. Whatever journey the game will take you on, it involves the apocalypse, a time-travelling bathroom, and reliving lives. It is a “wholesome celebration of the bloody end of the world”, as…

Wargroove’s PC and console players can now play together

It can be lonely being a Wargroove multiplayer fan. I hopped into Chucklefish’s Advance Wars-inspired strategy game the other day and there was only one game in the public lobby. I’m too shy to join such a game, so I left. But the latest patch might make that less of an issue, as it gathers up all the console versions and the PC and lets…

Cyberpunk 2077’s second Night City Wire stream is coming next week

We're only a week away from our next dive into Cyberpunk 2077's neon-filled Night City, as CD Projekt Red have just announced their next Night City Wire showcase will be streamed on August 10th. The last one provided a nice little insight into some of the features we can expect to see in CD Projekt Red's upcoming RPG, and this one looks to be a…

Surgeon Simulator 2 extracts a closed beta this weekend

As far as lockdown hobbies go, invasive surgery's a bit of a strange one. But if you insist on getting snappy with a scalpel, Surgeon Simulator 2 is opening the operating theatre a little early with a closed beta. Kicking off tomorrow, Bossa will give you a few days to get used to a stranger's insides before the medically-trainer hand-wobbler opens the hospital doors later…

Best budget gaming laptop deals of the week – 6th August 2020

Attempt a 20 player alien Olympics in Drink More Glurp, out today

Drink More Glurp is a game about aliens who simply do not understand the Olympics. They think that it's all about paid sponsorships, and as a result, their sponsors have weirded-up all the events, making it so these poor aliens have to deal with increasingly bizarre competitions. Now, when I say aliens I mean you, because they're who you play as in this quirky party…

Save $450 on this Asus RTX 2070 gaming laptop

Gaming laptops are expensive at the best of times, especially if you want one with a decent graphics chip inside it and isn't the size of a small vehicle. Happily, Newegg have chopped a massive $450 off Asus' ROG Strix Hero III laptop today, taking this normally $2000 gaming machine down to a much more appealing $1550. That's still a sizeable amount of cash, of…

Ninja streamed on Twitch yesterday for the first time since Mixer died

In what might be considered an unsurprising move, Ninja was back on Twitch yesterday - if only for a brief couple of hours. He played a bit of Fortnite's new Joyride update with Dr Lupo in his first stream on the platform since he left for Microsoft's now-dead Mixer last year. The popular lad had managed to rack up 100,000 viewers when I caught part…
