The Final Hours Of Half-Life Alyx lets you concoct bespoke alien screams

Thought it may as well have felt as much at the time Half-Life: Alyx didn't pop out of a vacuum. Released today, Half-Life: Alyx - Final Hours is an interactive multimedia docu-book full early prototypes and concepts, deets on what Valve's been up to for the last decade, and a bespoke make-your-own-headcrab-scream audio tool. You know, the usual behind-the-scenes stuff.

F1 2020 roars off to a surprisingly early start

Jumping the gun a bit there, aren't we? F1 2020, Codemaster's latest simulationist race 'em up, has sped off a day earlier than expected. That may be grounds for disqualification, but fortunately this a game, not a car. We'll all just have to settle for playing this year's licensed racer a little early. Oooh, what a nuisance, eh? You've really done it now, Codemasters.

Sennheiser’s gaming headset biz transforms with frankly terrifying trailer

Sennheiser have produced some fantastic gaming headsets over the years, including one of my current best gaming headset champions, the GSP 370 Wireless. But alas, Sennheiser's gaming division is no more, as their parent company Demant have now spun it out as a separate company called Epos. The name will continue to live on as Epos | Sennheiser on some of their gaming headsets, but…

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands is killing its gender transition fee

By all accounts, changing gender in World Of Warcraf has always been simpler than doing it for real. No appointments, no faff, no convincing Bobby Kotick through two years "lived experience" - just pay Blizzard a small fee and they'd let you rebuild your digital persona from the ground up. With this year's World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands expansion, even that hurdle is getting the boot,…

Razer’s Deathadder V2 mouse has now shrunk in size and price

Razer have announced a new, tiddlier version of their popular Deathadder V2 gaming mouse today, appropriately named the Deathadder V2 Mini. Weighing just 62g and costing £40 / $50, this ultralight weight gaming mouse is a whole 20g lighter than the regular Deathadder V2, making it a better fit for those with smaller hands. And to really seal the deal, Razer are also packing in…

The Forgotten City looks gorgeous in its new gameplay trailer

There's a new gameplay trailer out for The Forgotten City, the game that started life as an award-winning Skyrim mod. It's set in a cursed ancient Roman city where if one person sins, everyone dies. It's a Groundhog Day kind of scenario where you have to figure out the city's mysteries in order to break a time loop. In this new preview of one of…

Bloody co-op romp Killing Floor 2 is free on Epic this week

Crikey, it's all gotten rather gruesome on the Epic Games store this week.

You know the drill - these three are free to grab 'til next Thursday, at which point they'll be replaced by fantasy dungeon-crawler…

American Truck Simulator will encourage sightseeing with Viewpoint cinematics

As a frequent virtual tourist in American Truck Simulator, I am delighted to hear that developers SCS Software are adding feature catering to Sunday drivers like me who really want to admire the scenery. No, they're not letting us get out of our cabs and walk around the world, but they are adding little nodes you can visit in certain places to watch a cinematic…

Have you seen the green flash at sunset in Sea Of Thieves?

As the sun slowly disappears over the horizon, for just a few seconds it's possible to see the edges of the sun glow green in colour. It's rather aptly named the "green flash", and it's a somewhat rare meteorological phenomenon that can happen during sunset or sunrise when the conditions are just right. Thing is, I didn't actually realise that it was a real thing…

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s latest anti-cheat effort is Trusted mode

Valve have expanded Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's anti-cheat tech with new restrictions blocking third-party software which interacts with the game. 'Trusted mode' cuts off certain types of cheat, which is good. It also has the side-effect of blocking popular legitimate software including Nvidia Freestyle graphics filters and certain modes in OBS, the video capture & streaming tool. That's it working as intended but also, y'know, a…

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands beta arrives next week

The Covid-19 pandemic has taken its toll on a few games now, causing all sorts of delays on new info and release dates. Not World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands, though, as Blizzard confirmed in last night's live stream that the expansion will be arriving sometime this autumn, "even if they end up shipping from their homes." WoW fans will get to explore that sinister land of…

Valorant’s new $100 skins will turn your guns into dragons

What is a free-to-play game, truly, without super cool overpriced skins? Valorant, Riot's CS-like tactical shooter, has just revealed its new line of Elderflame gun skins, which turn your weapons into fiery, roaring, wiggly dragons. They're fully animated, swinging around to look at you after you get a kill, and you even reload them by politely handing over ammunition for them to consume. You'll be…

New Assassin’s Creed Valhalla leaked video shows a mythological boss battle

Ahead of Ubisoft's big notE3 show this weekend, gameplay footage of Assassin's Creed Valhalla continues to leak. Following the half-hour of gameplay seen earlier this week, now someone's come up with seven minutes of the female Eivor in a boss battle against some sort of "demon goddess". It is, appropriately, well metal.

The Dark Pictures Anthology – Little Hope is due on October 30th

Light horror fans rejoice, for The Dark Pictures Anthology - Little Hope cometh. The second game in a planned series of eight, this witchy tale is probably best thought of as a very fancy form of interactive fiction.As expected, it's a self-contained story presented by the vaguely menacing Curator, who challenges the player to decide how each story goes. Your choices and reflexes will ideally…

Totally Accurate Battle Simulator planning a full release this year

Wonky war game Totally Accurate Battle Simulator has been plunking around in various states of pre-release for years now. After an open alpha, closed alpha, and early access launch, TABS will finally get what Landfall are calling version 1.0 at the end of 2020. There's plenty of the usual silliness planned before then too, though.

Ninja is streaming on YouTube now

In what must be a huge stroke of luck, some fella called "Ninja" is streaming on YouTube for the first time ever for hundreds of thousands of viewers. "Like, this is my first YouTube stream ever. Ever. Literally ever," Ninja told his viewers as he dropped out of the battle bus for his first Fortnite match of the stream. I know Fortnite's popular and all, but…

The Sims is getting a reality show

Electronic Arts today announced The Sims 4 is spawning a reality TV show, The Sims Spark'd. No, it's not about strangers trapped in a swimming pool without a ladder. The four-episode series actually sounds kinda cool, challenging twelve Sims players to build characters, places, and stories in The Sims 4 and maybe win $100,000 (£78k). I'm so impressed by so many of the things players…
