Well you’re wrong! All our special Halloween features are about nice things today. We are wall-to-wall niceness. Dare I say suffocatingly cute.…

Steam Charts: Red Dead Redemption 2 Edition!

OK, look, it isn't a Red Dead Redemption 2 edition, because Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't out for PC yet. But if I keep typing Red Dead Redemption 2 into this Google is going to be SO TRICKED and the clicks will pour in and Graham will give me a promotion!

Nier: Automata’s 2B cutting into Soulcalibur VI as DLC

If the sexy horrors emerging from Soulcalibur VI's character creator hadn't already convinced you that it's the horniest fighting game, the next DLC character might sway you: it's 2B from Nier: Automata. Oh 2B, 2B, poor 2B, the robogoth cursed to fight an endless war for the glory of mankind dressed as a sexy fightmaid. (Don't judge: once you recognise the secret reason for her…

A giant rainbow cube is terrifying Soulcalibur VI players

I imagine there's a Fortnite Battle Royale player out there who can't stand cubes. Sick of being menaced by Kevin, I like to think that one day they tried to take refuge in Soulcalibur VI. And failed. Fighting game aficionado "Abbock" has dodged a restriction in the game's extraordinary character creator, crafting himself a massive rainbow cube that hides his true character model. I'm curious…

Soulcalibur VI review

This is Hooves. He loves to stab and parry and slash and speak in an alien tongue about how good he is at all of those things. Hooves also enjoys setting folks on fire, and paralysing people with frightening runes, which has led some observers (me) to dub him “Horse Geralt” after the hero of The Witcher 3. Unbeknownst to Hooves, he is a clone…

Arcade fighter Soulcalibur 6 is out now, featuring Geralt from the Witcher series

As a shameless button-masher, I'm so happy to see this series return, and with its latest iteration - Soulcalibur 6 - landing on PC for the first time ever. Bandai Namco's other long-running fighting series that isn't Tekken, Soulcalibur is about swords (and other melee weapons), ring outs and regular moves that can do enormous damage. This one debuts with a respectable 19 returning fighters,…

I can’t stop making horny lizard lads in Soulcalibur VI

Sword-obsessed fighting game Soulcalibur VI is out next week. I’m stabbing my way through the story mode, which is mostly a matter of skipping lots of anime-quality dialogue and then having a panicked clash against a man with knives for fingers. But something keeps distracting me. The character creator. It is very good. Here you choose from a bunch of fantasy races (orcs, elves, skellingtons),…

Soulcalibur VI arms up for October launch

The PC debut of Bandai Namco's Soulcalibur fighting game series will come with Soulcalibur VI on October 19th, they announced today. It's a stabby fighting game, arming characters with melee weapons rather than sending them in barefisted, and one of the stabbers is quite at home on PC even if the series isn't. Homegrown hero Geralt Of Rivia is a playable guest character, armed with…

See Geralt cut into Soul Calibur VI

As rumoured and expected, Geralt of Rivia will indeed cross over into Soul Calibur VI. Everyone's seemingly known for ages that the monster-hunting hero The Witcher would appear in the upcoming fighting game sequel, but now it's official. One of my main interests in life is hearing Geralt talk in a weary voice so you betcha I'm up for throwing him through a portal into…

Soon, Voldo and Geralt will meet outside my dreams

CD Projekt Red don't have to do much to capture the internet's attention. Remember when they beeped? That was a good day. Today is also a good day. No beeps or boops or any other sound effects have emerged from the witchy cyberpunkers, but a new chronicle of Geralt's adventures has appeared on the official Witcher twitter feed. "Kaer Morhen’s old stones have witnessed many…

Geralt may appear in Soul Calibur VI but here are the characters we really want

This is Brendan, broadcasting live from rumour world, where everything is made of a nebulous candy floss-like substance. The locals call it “hope.” Amid this sticky cloud, a figure has formed. It’s Geralt of Rivia, hero of popular Gwent spin-off, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The monster-hunting swordsman will “make an appearance” in another game later this year, according to CD Projekt Red community lead…

Soul Calibur VI’s first new character is unbelievably anime

I'm not good at most fighting games. I can hold out in the bottom 20% of players in any given Street Fighter, but it's not my scene. Soul Calibur is different, though; intuitive and weighty enough to play decently on instinct and reflex alone, without needing to remember complex input chains. As such, I'm happy that Bandai Namco's continued commitment to the PC extends as far as…

Soul Calibur VI shows off some samurai swordsing

The Game Awards and its accompanying news orgy are over and everyone is settling back into normal life with a low-burning sense of shame. That sweaty night of news saw the announcement of sword-slashing fighting game Soul Calibur VI and its upcoming PC debut. We only saw some cinematic swordicuffs between staple characters Mitsurugi and Sophitia but some PlayStation salesmen have now shown more of…

Soul Calibur VI is coming to PC in 2018

Sword-slashing fighting game Soul Calibur has been on consoles since the 1990s but next year it’s coming to PC with Soul Calibur VI, Bandai Namco announced last night during the Game Awards. Finally, you will be able to slice and/or dice your opponents with blades, rapiers, whips and whatever the hell those things are that Voldo uses. Not much has been revealed but there’s a…
