Grab Little Nightmares free for keeps this week and demo the sequel

Spooky sequel Little Nightmares 2 is just around the corner waiting to pop out and scare you in February. If you've not played its predecessor puzzle platformer, well not to worry, you can snag it free for keeps through Sunday, giving you plenty of time to creep through it before the sequel. Bandai Namco have also scared up a frightful new trailer for the occasion.

The Dark Pictures Anthology’s next horror story is House Of Ashes

Horror anthology The Dark Pictures is apparently jumping even further back in time for its next spook story. Little Hope just launched last week, taking a group of students and their professor to a town haunted by the ghosts of witch trials past. A post-credits scene in Little Hope contains a teaser trailer for the next chapter: House Of Ashes, which will haul some modern-day…

Little Hope review

Little Hope is the second game in The Dark Pictures Anthology, a series of interactive horror games trying to build on the popularity of 2015's Until Dawn. In it, you play as a college field trip group (three teenage students, one mature, and a professor, and I bet some of you already have that in your search history). After a mysterious bus crash, the group…

The Dark Pictures Anthology continues with Little Hope today

Supermassive Games, the makers of Until Dawn, return today with a new branching horror story, The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope. This time, they're sending hapless students to an abandoned American town with a dark history of witch trials. Oh you bet they're getting a spooking! It supports co-op so your pals can join in making foolish decisions leading to their deaths too, make a…

Little Nightmares 2 asks ‘what if weeping angels, but mannequins?’ and you will not like the answer

The original Little Nightmares is one of my favourite horror games ever. I admire a horror game that doesn't rely on the first-person perspective. Little Nightmares is scary in the same way it was scary to hide in your parents' wardrobe because you were planning to jump out at them, but then you sort of fell over your dad's shoes and you weren't sure what…

Extremely anime football game Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is out now

Captain Tsubasa: Rise Of New Champions is an arcade football meets sports anime with all the wild special shots you'd expect from that intersection. Super-powerful special moves and summoned animals and other extremely anime bits accompany the usual dribbling and scoring of proper football. Kickoff is coming because Captain Tsubasa it out now alongside a new ridiculous trailer.

Have You Played… Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+?

Can you honestly say with a straight face that Pac-Man has seen the same success he once saw 40 years ago? He's been rebooted an embarrassing number of times; I still have nightmares about his "Ghostly Adventures". However, I'd argue that Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ (or Pac-Man DX+ for short) was one of the two times that Bandai Namco were onto something great.

Oh hey, remember Dontnod’s weird investigative adventure game Twin Mirror? Here’s a new teaser trailer

It's been a bit quiet on the Twin Mirror front, but a new teaser trailer was just revealed at the PC Gaming Show. For those who don't remember (who could blame you? It's been so long I thought the trailer was teasing a sequel to A Way Out before I thought of Twin Mirror), Twin Mirror is a weird sort of X-Filesy adventure game from…

Monster-fighting action game Scarlet Nexus is coming to PC

This anime-style action game about fighting off the creatively-named "others" was one of the many trailers we peeped during Xbox's big reveal real yesterday. Bandai Namco have announced that Scarlet Nexus is actually coming to PC as well, so we'll get to do a bit of monster butt-kickin' too. Is that an evil bouquet of flowers in a corset down in yon trailer? Yup, of…

Have You Played… Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom?

The first Ni No Kuni game arguably pulled off the biggest art coup in the history of games: getting the renowned Japanese animation giant Studio Ghibli to magic up a living, breathing game world that looked (and sounded) just like their beloved films. Its sequel, Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, never benefited from the same Ghibli wizardry as its predecessor, but put the two…

Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch Remastered review

In Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch, saving the world isn't so much about doing battle with the forces of evil (although that's certainly part of it). Instead, it's about mending the broken hearts of the people within it. Whether it's restoring the enthusiasm of a depressed town guard or snapping the bovine ruler of a desert kingdom out of their all-consuming cheese…

One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 bounces towards PC next year

Piratical punch 'em up One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 is headed to PC next year. For me, this is great news, as among Omega Force's dumb-but-fun Warriors games there's few I consider dumber or more fun than Pirate Warriors 3. Based on pirate adventure manga and anime series One Piece, Pirate Warriors 3 was pure catharsis - if you weren't beating up literal thousands of…

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows brings super-powered ennui to PC

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a game I'm struggling to comprehend the existence of. Superhero comic-based fighting games are common enough, but the subject matter here (excellent comedy manga/anime One Punch Man) doesn't lend itself to close-fought battles. Or fights at all, on account of protagonist Saitama being utterly invulnerable and capable of ending every fight with one hit, hence the title.…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Elden Ring release date, trailer, everything we know

Elden Ring is a collaboration between From Software and George R.R. Martin and aside from the single trailer, there is very little to go on. Bandai Namco will be publishing the game, much like they did the Dark Souls games, and from what we have seen of the trailer, it certainly fits the mold of a Dark Souls like game. So to that end, we will…

Jump Force bounds onto PC today

Manga mash-up fighter Jump Force is out today, and I feel there's something almost uniquely off-putting about its aesthetic. Don't be me wrong - I've nothing against anime - but Spike Chunsoft appear to have carefully cultivated a look for their fighter that I can only describe as 'Doofing around in Garry's Mod'. Still, despite the bizarre look, it's apparently not an awful fighter, letting…

Dragon Ball FighterZ debuts six more DLC characters starting January 31st

There's another six DLC characters headed to excellent anime fighter Dragon Ball FighterZ, and (so far), only half a Goku confirmed. Announced after last night's Red Bull-sponsored Dragon Ball FighterZ tourney finals, Arc System Works unveiled the second FighterZ pass. The first two characters - feisty lass Videl and chunky alien lad Jiren - are launching this Thursday, January 31st. The next two will be an…
