New Humble Bundle offers Gang Beasts, Gnog, and… Everything

An eclectic mix of decent games including local multiplayer sillyfighter Gang Beasts, head-spinning puzzler Gnog, and everything simulator Everything are bagged up together in the latest Humble Bundle at a good price. The Humble Double Fine Presents Bundle is its name, gathering games Double Fine published rather than ones they've made themselves. They have an unusual eye like few other 'indie' publishing labels, though they…

EA reportedly cancels Star Wars game for a second time

Remember that ill-fated Star Wars game codenamed ‘Ragtag’ that was being made by Dead Space developers Visceral? It was supposed to be an Uncharted-inspired single player action adventure, helmed by Amy Hennig, director of the first three Drake ‘em ups. But it got cancelled (amid various development problems) and the whole project was thrown to Canadian studio EA Vancouver who were then told to make…

Say hello to Primordial Chaos in the first big Hades update

I'm a big fan of Hades. You'd think an early access roguelike wouldn't be a great fit for the Bastion devs, but I should never have doubted Supergiant's ability to knit a story around whatever genre or development structure they please. Last night saw the release of the Chaos Update, and there's something else lurking among the balance tweaks, art changes and new room types.…

Chaos;Child brings another Science Adventure VN to PC next week

Another visual novel in Mages's Science Adventure series (Steins;Gate et al) is headed to PC, and very soon. Chaos;Child launches next Tuesday, January 22nd. It's a dark teen psycho-thriller mystery set in the aftermath of an earthquake that wrecked Tokyo's Shibuya ward. There's a series of grisly murders to be investigated, and they probably related to a group of youths whose delusions and fantasies can…

Super Dragon Ball Heroes World Mission takes Goku card-battling

The next game bringing far too many Gokus to PC is Super Dragon Ball Heroes World Mission on April 5th. Unwieldy title aside, this one's a bit different from the usual fighting game fare - it's a collectable card game, though it doesn't bear much resemblance to Hearthstone and its ilk either. It's the latest in a series of arcade and 3DS CCGs by Dimps,…

Aer studio Forgotten Key to shut down, release prototypes free

The past year has been rough for a lot of smaller studios, and the latest casualty may be Forgotten Key, developers of the rather lovely exploration adventure Aer: Memories Of Old. Despite the game being well received, the obviously talented studio say here that they've struggled to find investors and keep the lights on. Unless something changes soon, the team will disband. Kindly, they've released…

Forza Horizon 4 axes Carlton and Floss dances, adds cab-driving and Mitsubishis

Forza Horizon 4's latest update giveth and taketh away. While generous in how much Playground Games are adding free to their driving sandbox, the party is over for the Carlton and Floss dances, which have been patched out. Not surprising, given that they're the subjects of two separate legal battles with Fortnite developer Epic Games. Still, it's not all bad - update five adds seven…

In sync at last: Nvidia’s new driver that enables G-Sync on your Freesync is out now

There's a twist in the tale of the today's latest Nvidia driver, as it finally adds support for FreeSync monitors. For years now, there's been a GeForce tax if you wanted a screen with Nvidia's brand of adaptive sync - that is, the one that can adjust its refresh rate, and therefore in-game frame rate, with wild abandon, and more importantly without that icky screen-tearing…

Onimusha: Warlords hits PC today looking sharply remastered

Onimusha: Warlords is out now on PC, just days short of its 18th anniversary on consoles. Capcom's samurai-themed hybrid of precise hack n' slash combat and survival horror puzzling was always the awkward middle child between Resident Evil and Devil May Cry, but it had heart. Rather than a remake, the PC version of Onimusha: Warlords is a straight remaster. The pre-rendered 2D backdrops are…

American Truck Simulator seems off to Washington next

It looks like the next American Truck Simulator expansion will go even deeper into the lands I long for, into the trees and mountains of Washington state. WA! Land of Twin Peaks. WA! Birthplace of riot grrrl. WA! Home of Frasier Crane. WA! Where Valve are. WA! With that nice Twitter account saying if Mount Rainier is visible from Seattle. WA! Where rain is good.…

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius unleashes Tyranids in new DLC

Warhammer's Tyranids would be difficult to placate in a traditional 4X strategy game. They'd always be offering you bum deals for your biomass, sending heretical missionaries to spread the good word about biomass, claiming they saw your biomass first so it's rightfully theirs, rivalling your tourism industry with such attractions as Biomass World and Eurobiomass, delivering notes sneering at your meagre biomass, and tainting your…

My Time At Portia harvests full release today

The game which sounds like summer hols at your posh boarding school gal pal's chateau spent riding horses and investigating the secrets of the grandmother who lives in the attic but is in fact a build-o-farm 'em up, My Time At Portia, today launched properly. A bit like a 3D take on Stardew Valley and Harvest Moon and such, it's about farming and fighting and…

Fortnite brings back glider redeploying, kinda

The ability to redeploy your glider like a flying squirrel any time you please in Fortnite Battle Royale has returned, kinda. Once an unlimited ability, it's now tied to an item you'll need to find and which only has ten charges. As someone who only dabbles in Fortnite's 50v50 madcap modes between my weeks-long matches in Ian Iannucci's Battle For Basildon, I like glider-redeploying as…

Huge space fleet suffers over 30 deaths shortly after launch of Elite Dangerous exploration trip

Space is big, we’re often told. But it’s also a bit of a dick. Over 30 ships are reported to have perished in one star system, known as The View, just days into a months-long expedition organised by Elite Dangerous players. This star system is called 'The View' because you can get some stunning galactic photos from one of its planets. But that planet also…

Do you want to be a speaker at this year’s EGX Rezzed?

Are you a studio manager with tales to tell about how your team conquered crunch? Are you a freelance game artist with tips about how to stay sane while working from home? Are you a writer who can't stop sharing anecdotes about working with voice actors, a struggling indie dev ready to be frank about where things went wrong, or any other games industry person…

Half of all games on Steam came out since 2017

An explosion in PC games is A Thing That Has Happened And Was Always Going To Happen, due to more accessible development tools and the removal of physical barriers to distribution. There's been much discussion about the e'er-rising tide of new Steam releases, but recently we got to put an actual number on it. The current total of games - i.e. complete, individual games, DLC…

Skyrim multiplayer mod is nearly Su Grah Dun

Here's one to put on your Fus Ra-Dar. A Skyrim multiplayer mod is about to enter closed beta, and will soon offer you and up to seven friends the chance to explore the snowy bit of Tamriel together. The devs say the closed beta won't last long, and an open one will be hot on its heels. It is worth bearing in mind that they…

Steam in review for 2018 and Valve’s plans for 2019

A lot happened with Steam in 2018, for better or worse. While unsurprisingly skirting around the worst of their problems, Valve's Steam Blog breakdown of 2018 here makes for an interesting read. The company are clearly proud of the enormous tonnage of data they've distributed (15.39 exabytes), and go on to further chart the growth of gamepad usage on PC. Valve also showcase some of…

Hocus Pocus Doom drags Apogee’s DOS platformer into the third dimension

Hocus Pocus Doom a dangerously potent cocktail of nostalgia. Doom 2 modder "Ravage" has been working on this since 2014, adapting an old 2D DOS game into a GZDoom-based (but kid-friendly) FPS. If you grew up playing DOS games in the 90s, you may remember Hocus Pocus, or at least the shareware version. Honestly, it wasn't the greatest - a simple platformer published by Apogee. Hocus Pocus…

Away: Journey To The Unexpected launches its charm offensive February

Away: Journey To The Unexpected is a preposterously cute game. Launching on February 13th (or earlier from GOG), it's a first-person action RPG by Aurélien Regard (The Next Penelope), and as much about making weird new friends as bopping monsters on the head. I've had the chance to play around with an early build, and it feels like an unusual blend of inspirations. Part PSX-era…
