Konami’s new cheese grater gaming PC specs are getting shredded online

Konami may be best known for making games here in the west, but over in Japan they also have a long history of making arcade hardware and pachinko machines for the amusement sector. Now, they're branching out into gaming PCs as well thanks to their new line of Arespear rigs, which were unveiled earlier this week. The name is meant to be a portmanteau of…

PES 2021 will be a lesser update because Konami are focused on next-gen game

Konami have announced that this year's new Pro Evolution Soccer game will only be "a streamlined offering in the form of a 'season update'." The reason for the less substantial annual refresh this year, Konami say, is that the game they plan to launch next year on the next generation of consoles is fancy enough that they're focusing efforts on that. For now, they have…

Konami still haven’t announced a new Silent Hill, but some Silent Hill stuff has arrived

Despite all the notE3 showcases and announcements this week, Konami have not announced a new Silent Hill. Not even hinted at one. Despite the rumours that they might have two coming. Ah well. However, two notable things have happened in the field of quiet mounds:1) Dead By Daylight launched Silent Hill DLC, adding Cheryl Mason and Pyramid Head. 2) Konami put seven Silent Hill soundtracks…

Action platformer Skelattack has you defend your dungeon from rude human adventurers

Ever feel like your dungeon crawling adventures are actually you imposing on the homes of those skeleton, ooze, and monster folks? That's the angle that action platformer Skelattack takes, asking you to help recently deceased Skully defend the underworld from a bunch of human attackers. Skelattack is out now, with a new launch trailer to show off all the hopping, slashing, and trap-avoiding.

Silent Hill is returning… in Dead By Daylight DLC

While the Silent Hill series still seems basically dead, and maybe that's for the best, parts will return in Dead By Daylight. The 1v4 multiplayer horrorshow's next DLC pack will introduce Silent Hill, with Cheryl Mason as a playable survivor, Pyramid Head as a killer, and the school as a new map. DBD has long had guest characters out horror films, from Halloween to Scream,…

Dance Dance Revolution just became a free browser game

You feel it too, right? Stuck at home, by your lonesome, we're all just trying to resist that human desire to break out and dance to some high-energy beats. This week, an open alpha for Dance Dance Revolution V brought the arcade classic to PC, for free, through your browser. Blimey, that'll save you a few 50p coins.

Castlevania is back for season 3 on Netflix next month

Alright vampire lovers, do not despair. Bloodlines 2 got the ol' pushback but Castlevania has you covered for early 2020. Netflix's Castlevania is returning for a third season in March with more animated fangs based on Konami's classic vamp 'em up . That's the news part. The non-news is that vampires are still hot. You don't need me to tell you that, you can just watch…

Konami kickabout PES 2020 has a demo out now

Ahem - ah, fitbaw! The bootiful game. Nothing better than gathering the crew 'round for a great big kickabout in the park, right? Actually, tell you what, that sounds a bit rubbish right now. It's all wet out, my spiked shoes are all busted up, and Mister Johnson's not given the ball back since we kicked it into his cabbage patch. How's about some eFootball…

You play a panda with a minigun in Contra: Rogue Corps

The fight to become the best panda in videogames is the smallest, fluffiest battle royale. Until last week, there were two serious contenders. The Just Dance panda was the bookies favourite, for clear reasons. And the panda who became last year’s Tekken World Champion is the other (don’t @ me). But now we have a third competitor. Contra: Rogue Corps is a new twin-stick co-op…

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…

Contra: Rogue Corps attacks PCs aggressively on September 26th

Another surprise during yesterday's Nintendo Direct E3 show: Contra: Rogue Corps is the latest in Konami's long-neglected series of hard-as-nails arcade shooters, and the first to come to PC since the DOS era. Ditching the side-scrolling style of most good games in the series in favour of a roaming camera, and up to four-player via online co-op, it seems like an odd way to revive the…

Castlevania and Contra collections coming to PC

As they turn 50 this year, Japanese developers and publishers Konami have announced three collections bagging up a number of former glories: Contra side-scrolling shooters, a big of old arcade games, and the metroidvania series Castlevania. Konami haven't yet revealed the full contents of the Contra and Castlevania collections, but so far they're very much leaning towards the early days. Hey, when I turn fifty,…

Kat Brewster’s 5 best games of 2018

I wracked my brain over the past few weeks, trying to think of games I played in 2018. This seems to happen every year around GOTY time — much like when someone asks you what your favourite movie is, and you forget whether you’ve actually ever seen a movie. Did… Did I play any video games? Did any games even come out? Surely there must…

Anime mecha classic Zone Of The Enders 2 hits PC today – try the demo now, including VR support

Oi, oi, enough laughing at the back. Yes, the robots have their prominent cockpits mounted at crotch height. Done giggling? Good. Questionable pilot seating aside, Zone Of The Enders The 2nd Runner: M∀RS (to give it its full and incredibly clunky name) still looks and plays great to this day, despite being a fifteen-year-old PS2 game under its glossy 4k (and optionally VR) remastering.Zone Of The…

Metal Gear Solid 5 finally lets you play as sniper Quiet

Messy spinoff Metal Gear Survive might not have landed with much grace, but Konami know better than to kill their golden goose; Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Even if its exiled director is busy hanging out with Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen, they've still got a few people working on MGS5, and their latest annual update finally gives players the chance to play…

PES 2019 kicks off in August

Konami's squad-based real-time tactical series Pro Evolution Soccer will return with its latest annual sequel at the end of August. Changes they're boasting about in the latest include fancier pictures, improved animation, improved ball physics, a dozen new skill traits... ah, y'know, it's the new PES - get this or the next FIFA depending on which you prefer, yeah? For now, watch the announcement trailer…

Super Bomberman R returns a classic to PC with portals

Hard to believe, but the PC hasn't seen a new Bomberman game since 1997. A thousand clones and imitators, yes, but nothing official outside of some emulated compilations. Boundaries between PCs and consoles are crumbling, though, and Konami's recent Super Bomberman R is headed to PC this June, along with a platform-exclusive playable character: P-body, one of the two co-op robots from Portal.

Zone of the Enders 2 HD HD HD gets a comparison trailer & launch month

The Devil May Cry HD updates may have underwhelmed, but there's one PS2 remaster on the horizon that seems far more likely to please: Hideo Kojima's well-regarded foray into the realm of giant mecha anime excess, Zone of the Enders 2, which still stands as one of the best takes on the genre, and after a bit of a slip it seems to have a…

Feature: Shambling backwards

Metal Gear Survive review

There was a point early on in Metal Gear Survive where I thought that, despite its annoyances, Konami’s zombie spin-off was actually going to be quite good. It came about an hour in when I had to sneak into a base packed with shambling horrors, using stealth and distraction to outwit the hordes. It was tense. It was exciting.That didn't last long.
