Tekken 7 brings bearbiffing to PC in June

Knuckle tattoo idea: G O O D  D O G S

The bear-knuckle biffing of Tekken 7 [official site] will arrive on June 2nd, Bandai Namco announced today. After 22 years (22!), the fighting game series will finally swing by PC. One might say it has ‘Tekken’ its time, if one were a punfaced git.

“But Alice,” you say, and I hear you saying it so don’t say you don’t because you do, “how will I understand the plot if I’ve missed Tekkens one through six?” Mate, having watched the new trailer I can tell you it’s all a load of tosh about bad dads, bears, a man who shouts zapbeams, a sexy lady spy from an ’80s B movie, Liberace, and an anime magical robogirl armed with a minigun, all throwing down.

Pleased to meet BOO! Little Nightmares out April 28th

What I dig so much about Little Nightmares [official site] is that the nightmares aren’t little – you are. Vast hands emerge from the shadows on snaking arms. Clammy chefs bloated like drowned corpses reach for you cowering under tables. A sea of shoes. The world of Tarsier Studios’ puzzle-platformer looks dreadful in the most wonderful way. Adam will tell you it’s pleasing to play too, or at least the preview version he played was. The rest of us will finally get to venture into its undersea dollhouse soon-ish, as Little Nightmares now has a release date: April 28th. Read the rest of this entry »

Dear sirs...

A demo for Tales of Berseria [official site] is now out on Steam, offering a sample of Bandai Namco’s JRPG ahead of its full launch on January 27th. Tales may be an old series but it’s relatively new to PC, so do have a bash if you’re curious. If you’re less interested in games than options menus and framerates, hey, I can tell you about that.

Tales of Berseria getting demo in January before release

Bandai Namco’s long-running Tales series of RPGs has avoided PCs for most of its life but they’ve recently started bringing both old and new Tales games our way. The PC version of Tales of Berseria [official site] will launch on the same day of its console counterpart, January 27th, and we’ll even be treated to a demo before then. Look for that on January 10th, Bamco have announced. While they are getting better at this ‘PC gaming’ malarkey, their ports can be still wonky so good, that’s good to hear. Here, come have a gander at Berseria in a new trailer. Read the rest of this entry »

Bear-knuckle brawling in Tekken 7 next year

I mean, sure, why not?

Perhaps you, like me, had forgotten that Tekken 7 [official site] will see the fighting game series finally arrive on PC. Perhaps you, like me, had forgotten that Tekken is so cuckoo kooky bonkers that its lineup of pugilists includes not one but two bears – one grizzly, one panda. Also the bears can talk. And at least one of them evidently ↑ likes a good natter on his pocket telephone. Amazing scenes. Tekken 7 isn’t due until next year but, to remind us of that, Bandai Namco have released a new trailer to remind us of that and of its wacky bears. Read the rest of this entry »

Wot I Think: Dark Souls 3 – Ashes Of Ariandel

Ashes of Arandiel is the first of two DLCs for Dark Souls III [official site], making it quite possibly the penultimate Souls adventure. We sent intrepid Robert Zak into the cold wastes of the Painted World of Ariandel to see how well it lives up to the mighty legacy of the series, and he returned a short time later stricken with frostbite. And wolfbites. Here’s wot he thinks.
