Fast & Furious Crossroads exploding out next year

The delightfully daft Fast & Furious movies are getting a new video game adaptation next year from the makers of Project Cars and Need For Speed: Shift. Fast & Furious Crossroads is its name, and doing car crimes while dodging explosions and wrecking balls is its game. F&F is one of the few movies I worry would get less silly in a game but Slightly…

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…

Zafina the astrologist turns her hand to Tekken 7, plus new moves for everyone else

Hello biffers, your Mars is in ascendance. That astrologist you consulted about your mortgage now has a relatable character to use in punchsome fighting game Tekken 7. Zafina is a purple clad fighter with a keen interest in the stars circling your head after she knocks you the flip out. She also has a giant claw for a hand, because what self-respecting Gemini doesn't have…

Little Nightmares 2 explores new horrors next year

The doughy and wonderfully unpleasant horrors of Little Nightmares will return next year in a sequel, Bandai Namco announced today. Little Nightmares II will send us out into the wider world as another spooky wee kid, this time a lad with a paper bag on our head, and our yellow-coated pal from the first game is coming along. She'll be an AI-controlled friend keeping us…

Tekken 7’s new character is Ip Man with dreadlocks

Barnstorming punch ‘em up Tekken 7 is getting a new knuckle sandwich artist, developers Bandai Namco have announced. He’s a calm-looking martial fightist who lost his family in a gang conflict in New York and went missing for 50 years, only to reappear in the following videogame trailer at fighting game championship EVO 2019. It looks like he’s been hanging out in Hong Kong, because…

Evo 2019’s best storyline is a wholesome Dragon Ball FighterZ rivalry

Dragon Ball FighterZ is not supposed to be the main event at fighting game tournament Evo. But at any event like this, it’s the best stories that rise to the surface. In the fighting game community of late, those stories often involve Dominique “SonicFox” McLean, and, when it comes to DBFZ, his rival Goichi "GO1" Kishida. This year, it was GO1 who triumphed – but…

Tales Of Arise looks gorgeous, has a big flaming stompy thing in it

Man is a complicated beast. I, for example, like to complain about not having any good JRPGs to play whilst shamefully ignoring the Tales Of series, which many anime-curve connoisseurs I know consistently tell me is excellent.  That may all change with Tales Of Arise. The announcement at E3 only showed a smidgen of action, but what it did show was pretty enough to get…

Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch Remastered hits PC in September

Studio Ghibli and Level-5's JRPG Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch is the next console game of yesteryear to see a remastered PC release. Due September 20th, it seems that publisher Bandai Namco aren't changing much from the PS3 original beyond a boost in resolution and frame rate. Not there's much that needs changing, as the game's real-time art was almost as pretty…

FromSoftware reveal George R.R. Martin’s Elden Ring

As rumoured, the next game from Dark Souls and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice studio FromSoftware is Elden Ring. Revealed tonight during Microsoft's E3 blast, it is some manner of FromSoft-y fantasy action-RPG. All we have to see for now is a pre-rendered cinematic trailer narrated by a chap stuck in a drainpipe. Elden Ring is being directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, who also directed Sekiro, Bloodborne,…

From Software and George R. R. Martin’s RPG Elden Ring leaked

We are truly in E3 times, as evidenced by the fact that this ship is springing new leaks faster than any crew could patch ‘em. Last night was the turn of Bandai Namco, with the reveal of that previously rumoured From Software/George R. R. Martin joint washing onto deck early. According to a now-pulled, but previously publicly accessible webpage spotted by Gematsu it'll be called…

Feature: Frostpunk meets The Long Dark

Have You Played… Impact Winter?

Say the words 'snowy survival game' and you'll probably conjure up chilly thoughts about 11 bit's excellent Frostpunk or Hinterland's ever-popular The Long Dark. But there's another survival game out there that sees you donning a pair of old snow boots as you try to stick it out in its white, frostbitten wilderness: Mojo Bones' Impact Winter. And I'd argue it does a pretty good…

Steam discounts all things Japanese for Golden Week

It's the first day of Golden Week in Japan, and while that may not mean much to those in English-speaking territories, it's one of the nation's biggest holidays. As Valve never miss an excuse for a sale, that means that there's some great deals on games from Japanese developers and publishers. If visual novels, fighting games or JRPGs are your thing, there's some good stuff…

Valve respond confusingly to European Commission region-locking complaint

Earlier today, the European Commission released a statement claiming Valve and five other publishers may have worked together to breach EU international competition rules. The companies are accused of blocking the activation of Steam keys purchased from other nations, even if the purchase and activation locations are both EU member states. The companies named include Bandai Namco, Capcom, Focus Home, Koch Media (including Deep Silver) and…

Double Fine announce RAD, a post-apocalyptic hack n’ slasher

Double Fine have just unveiled tongue-in-cheek '80s-themed post-apocalyptic hack n' slasher RAD. Players control a baseball bat-swinging, life-bringing teen as they explore a radioactive wasteland, fighting and looting as they go, action RPG style. Wherever you walk, lush green grass sprouts in your wake, but exposure to the weirdness of the wastes changes you in turn. Players can pick up a bunch of big, weird, visible…

Feature: A sad tale of a mother scorned

Have You Played… Dark Souls III?

It was inevitable that this would feature in a Have You Played article. Dark Souls III heralded the end of the wildly popular trilogy of punishing games, and it was the culmination of everything From Software learned over the Souls years. But of course, you probably knew that. You probably don't know, however, that according to the deep and secret lore of Dark Souls 3, one…

Julia and The Walking Dead’s Negan hit Tekken 7 next week

Tekken 7 gets just that little bit weirder on February 28th, as live-streaming pugilist Julia Chang gets extremely online in the ring. Baseball-bat swinging warlord Negan from The Walking Dead makes the leap along with her. Together, they wrap up the second season of the Bandai Namco arcade fighter's DLC. In any other fighter these two would probably seem like oddballs, but Tekken 7's cast…

God Eater 3’s hunt for monsters has begun

'Monster hunter' might once have sounded an impressive job title, one sure to raise gasps and coos when mingling at a house party, but it's got nothing on 'god eater'. Sure, the jobs are largely the same, both involving hacking 'n' slashing big monsters with big weapons, but 'god eater' has much more... drama. You can see people's faces fall when they ask the god…

Ace Combat 7 modders fix pop-in and add ultrawide monitor support

Ace Combat 7, the unflappable JRPG disguised as a jet fighter game, had some dissatisfied pilots when it came out on PC last week. The trigger-happy fly ‘em up released without support for most joysticks or HOTAS controllers, which irritated folks. And other technical foibles also inevitably annoyed people. Well, there's still no joy for the stick users. But there are some other small fixes,…

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,…

Tales Of Vesperia gets depth-of-field fix and more with this mod

I know your sort. I bet you bought that Tales Of Vesperia: Definitive Edition. I bet you slurped it right up, with a thirst for JRPG wolfmen that went unslaked for 10 years as you waited for it to come to PC. I bet you downloaded the new-old game laughing at the Twitter banter between publisher Bandai Namco and a demanding fan from three years…
