Spelunky 2 arrives next month, but probably not for PC

The good news? Spelunky 2 comes out next month! Hooray! The bad news is that, in all likelihood, the spelunkin' sequel's release will be exclusive to Sony's PlayStation tellybox. Boo, hiss, and all that rubbish. But while a PC release date remains as elusive as an eggplant, we can still enjoy a deeper dive into Spelunky's caves with developer Derek Yu.

Dontnod don’t want to tell a transgender story “rooted in pain or trauma”

Dontnod Entertainment have popped a spoiler-filled FAQ up for their new narrative-driven game, Tell Me Why, detailing how trans character Tyler's story is going to be handled. They've made the FAQs as sort of content warnings so fans can get an idea of what Tyler's experience is going to be like before playing."So many mainstream narratives about trans people are rooted in pain or trauma,…

Feature: The biggest of moods

I’m sorry, I’m obsessed with the Halo Infinite crisis gorilla

Escharum has set a fire in my heart. There were plenty of titbits to be gleaned from last night's Halo Infinite campaign footage, but the star of the show for me was the incredibly aggravated gorilla who came out of nowhere to deliver a passionate monologue to camera, right at the end. Admittedly, this sounds exactly like something I would invent in a joke post…

Hello Neighbor 2 coming to PC and Xbox next year

The strange home-invasion simulator, Hello Neighbor, has managed to bag itself a sequel, set to launch next year. From what I know of the first one, you play as a nosy child who will not stop breaking into a man's house, no matter how many creepy things you discover in there. Hello Neighbor 2 is plonking you back in that same neighbourhood, except this time…

CrossfireX’s Xbox Showcase trailer has a DMX cover for xtra Xs

It is weird to me that the makers of Control and Max Payne are working on the singleplayer campaign of a generic-looking paramilitary FPS, CrossfireX. It is even weirder that a new trailer showing off this campaign is soundtracked by an 'epic' melancholy cover of DMX's X Gon' Give It To Ya. It is less weird that it's still not been confirmed for PC, though…

Yakuza: Like A Dragon is out November 13th, Xbox leak says

While Yakuza: Like A Dragon officially doesn't have a release date, only a November launch window, a listing on the Microsoft Store seems to have given it away: November 13th. The Store has been a real helpful source of leaks in recent weeks, with info on games including Call Of Duty: Black Ops CIA, Crysis Remastered, and Star Wars Squadron. Thanks, Microsoft.

Dragon Quest XI’s Definitive Edition is coming to PC

Two years after Dragon Quest XI: Echoes Of An Elusive Age hit PC, a new edition is coming round with additions including new quests and the option to play this 3D JRPG as a retro-styled 16-bit 2D game. Pleasingly daft, that. Bearing the triple-barrelled name Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes Of An Elusive Age - Definitive Edition, this new version debuted on Nintendo Switch in…

Dear reader, do you know of The Gunk? Have you touched the gunk? Tasted the gunk? Sucked up the gunk into your palm-sized vacuum cleaner? Of course you haven't - The Gunk was only just announced, taking a spot in today's Xbox Games Showcase. Coming next year from Steamworld Heist / Quest / Dig, The Gunk is a sci-fi survival platform that's positively covered in…

Destiny 2: Beyond Light’s icy new Stasis powers look great fun

While I'm still not convinced that getting pally with the forces of Darkness in Destiny 2 won't cause a second collapse of human civilisation, it does look great fun. A new trailer for the Beyond Light expansion shows some of the 'Stasis' abilities we'll somehow get from those presumed wrong'uns, and I was expecting to freeze enemies but I was not expecting to erect ice…

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis will give the ageing MMO a facelift

Phantasy Star Online 2's getting on a bit, isn't it? Sega's big ol' sci-fi MMO might've only officially come to the West this Spring, but it's been big in Japan for the better part of a decade - and boy, does it show. Announced during today's Xbox Games Showcase, New Genesis is preparing to change all that with a massive overhaul to the MMOs visuals.

Tetris Effect is adding multiplayer

The trippy neon block-dropper, Tetris Effect has announced plans to add multiplayer in a new edition named Tetris Effect: Connected. There are loads of new modes on the way for players to challenge their friends in local and online co-op - there are even ranked matches if you feel like competitive Tetris is something you'd like to try your hand at. While the devs do…

It's the debut game from Interior/Night, a studio founded by Caroline Marchal, former lead game designer at Quantic Dream on games like Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. The studio's goal is "to tell relatable, inclusive stories, grounded in real…

Feature: I'LL DESTROY YOU AT WRESTLEMANIA

Halo Infinite’s reveal ended with a gorilla losing its mind on camera

So, as of this evening's Xbox Games Showcase, we've finally seen footage of Halo Infinite, and it looks good! There was indeed a grappling hook, more mobility in general from the Chief (he can climb on boxes now!), and a couple of new guns. There was also some classic Warthog action, some dependably stirring music, and a couple of genuinely sublime moments of looking-out-across-a-halo-at-sunset beauty.…

Psychonauts 2 features the dulcet tones of Jack Black

I had looked away from the Xbox Games Showcase for a mere couple of minutes when the new Psychonauts 2 trailer dropped, so you may understand my surprise when I started hearing Jack Black's voice blaring through my headphones. That's right, Double Fine's sequel to the bizarre brain-exploring platformer will feature songs performed by the School Of Rock teacher himself. Here's that trailer with the,…

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a co-op FPS from the makers of Vermintide

They've gone and done it, team. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 developers Fatshark went and put their rat-smasher in space, announcing Warhammer 40,000: Darktide at today's Xbox Games Showcase. Frankly, it's about damn time someone made a rock-solid FPS in the 41st Millenium - and who better than the folks who turned a stodgy old fantasy wargame into a stellar Left 4 Dead successor?

Balan Wonderworld is Square Enix’s new platformer from some of Sonic’s creators

Square Enix today announced Balan Wonderworld, a new 3D platformer from a team including two of Sonic the Hedgehog's creators - who also did Nights Into Dreams together. It'll send us through a weird theatre into the magical Wonderworld, where we'll run, jump, climb, and oh you absolutely better believe we'll collect some glowing gems. You know, platformer stuff. It is very cheery-looking, as you…

The Outer Worlds goes sleuthing with Peril On Gorgon this September

From my understanding of Greek myths, you're not supposed to look directly at a Gorgon. That doesn't seem to be how The Outer Worlds' tales work, then, because there's a bloody asteroid of the same name that's crawling with baddies. Arriving this September, Peril On Gorgon brings in a whole new world full of conspiracies, subterfuge and good ol' fashioned gunfights in The Outer Worlds'…
