Reddit grants terminally ill fans’ wishes to play Borderlands 3 & Total War: Three Kingdoms

In case you're running low on good feels, this news packs a healthy dose: In the last week, two players got their dying wishes answered thanks to the help of Reddit. In one of those too-rare instances of the internet being a pretty ok place, users rallied and now a 26-year-old cancer patient will get his hands on Borderlands 3 ahead of its September release.…

Team Sonic Racing power-slides into stores today

If we ignore the wonky Sonic R, then Sonic The Hedgehog has had a pretty good track record as far as mascot kart-racers go. Team Sonic Racing is out today and the latest from Sumo Digital, formerly of the excellent Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. This time, they've narrowed their focus a bit, swapping transforming omni-vehicles for regular cars  and focusing solely on Sonic and…

Yakuza Kiwami 2 review

The first thing you do in Yakuza Kiwami 2 is walk through a graveyard. As caring dad hero, Kiryu, you’re visiting the resting place of those who died at the end of the previous game. It’s a sombre moment, a cemetery visit with your adoptive daughter to pay respects to loved ones killed in terrible circumstances. You bow your head and inspect the graves. Then…

Yakuza Kiwami 2 brings more mobster melodrama to PC today

Guess who just got back today? Them wild-eyed dads that'd been away. Haven't changed, had much to say, but man I still think them cats are crazy. My dads are back in town, you see, now that Yakuza Kiwami 2 is out on PC. Mobster-with-a-heart-of-gold Kazuma Kiryu will once again roam around Tokyo and Osaka in this brawler-RPG sequel, becoming a father figure to total…

Sega buy Two Point Hospital studio

Sega have snapped up another PC strategy studio, today announcing they've bought Two Point Hospital developers Two Point Studios. They haven't stated the English studio's price, but I trust payment was made in the form of a giant novelty cheque. Sega note that Two Point have "several" unannounced projects in the pipeline, in a dry business-y way, while the studio themselves just shouted on Twitter…

Puyo Puyo Champions is out now for pro puzzle fiends

Today's launch of Puyo Puyo Champions makes more sense when you know its Japanese title - Puyo Puyo eSports. This is Sega's attempt to push the cute puzzler into the competitive sphere. Initially similar to last year's (on PC at least) Puyo Puyo Tetris, this game offers a smaller range of modes and features, but at a fittingly reduced price and a laser-focus on online…

Sonic the Hedgehog’s movie look getting a makeover

Sonic the Hedgehog is to get a redesign for his Hollywood movie, director Jeff Fowler has said following reactions this week to the first trailer. Seems he and Paramount have made the terrible mistake of listening to the Internet. Oh sure, I was there, slapping out cyberposts about my FASCINATION with the sapphire snuffler's horrifying human teeth but what anthropomorphic animal isn't eerie? Aren't all…

Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer reveals his horrible human teeth

I was unprepared for Sonic the Hedgehog to have human teeth. Seeing as chilli dogs are his favourite food yet he eats them without soaking the bun in milk, I suppose I knew that Sonic wouldn't have the mouth and teeth of a real hedgehog in our world. I was still not ready for human teeth and weird lips. The first trailer for the live-action…

Total War: Warhammer 2 adds more rats and lizards today, free and paid

Today's The Prophet And The Warlock DLC for Total War: Warhammer 2 may be relatively small, adding just two new Legendary Lords, but the 'Doomsayer' update accompanying it is massive. Creative Assembly have overhauled campaign AI, added new AI factions, new regions and a new system of underground expansion for those sneaky Skaven. There's even a chunk of free DLC, adding a new Lizardman Legendary…

Yakuza Kiwami 2 bodyslams PC in May

Gaming's best dads will return to dispense fatherly advice and bodyslam baddies in Yakuza Kiwami 2 this May, Sega confirmed today. Kiryu and Majima will bring more crime melodrama, more minigames, more daft quests, more japes, and more mobsters whipping their jackets and shirts off in one single dramatic movement to reveal their tattoos when it's go time. This remake of 2006's Yakuza 2 is…

Sit still and quietly listen to Alien: Isolation’s soundscapes

Andy Kelly, the fella from cheery RPS fanzine PC Gamer who's behind pleasant 'look at pretty video game locations' video series Other Places, has kicked off a new subseries focused on the sounds of virtuaplaces. Which is a splendid idea. Video game sound is easily overlooked because 1) you can't actually look at it 2) you're trained to appreciate ambient images more than ambient sounds…

Love Thyself – A Horatio Story is a free, real, Endless Space dating sim

I've always liked how Amplitude set their games in the same universe. From Endless Space to Endless Legend, whether their games are flavoured sci-fi or fantasy, each one forms an act in a space opera that spans millennia. Surprise! The latest act came out yesterday. It's a free visual novel where you play as a fresh clone in the Horatio empire, a people born from…

Yakuza Kiwami 2 PC version revealed by ratings site

Lovers of violent neon soap operas, rejoice. Yakuza Kiwami 2, the open world crime caper about a good dad who punches bad, is coming to PC. At least, that's if the folks who stamp warnings on game boxes are to be believed. The ERSB posted that a PC version of the game has been given a rating of M for Mature, as spotted by a…

Two Point Hospital headcrab pandemic heralds trial weekend

A calamitous crossing of worlds has occurred in Two Point Hospital, the spiritual successor to Bullfrog's Theme Hospital, with Half-Life headcrabs glomping onto heads and all manner of decorative doodads from Sega PC games scattering around hospitals. If you've not yet played the wacky hospital management sim, hey, you're invited to try the whole thing for free this weekend on Steam. The trial weekend has…

Have You Played… Streets of Rage 2?

Streets of Rage 2 was one of the Sega Mega Drive's most revered games but you can get it on Steam these days. It first came during a period when arcades had a lot of similar beat 'em ups, from those based in cities fighting thugs, to fantasy and futuristic settings. There were licensed games based on cartoons such as The Simpsons and Teenage Mutant Ninja…

Records mode makes Total War: Three Kingdoms less romantic

By default, Total War: Three Kingdoms doesn't look like a gritty, realistic simulation of ancient Chinese warfare. Sure, the political and espionage systems make my head spin, but its heroic generals give it some of the same feel as Total War: Warhammer. Enter Records mode, an alternate, more historically accurate way to play Three Kingdoms. Creative Assembly's new mode reduces generals back to mere mortals,…

Yakuza Kiwami review

Yakuza Kiwami is a world of outlandish violence in which you play a kind of unmasked Batman in an out-of-date suit. Our hero, Kiryu, doesn’t kill. He helps people find their glasses, he gives coats to the homeless, and he beats up hundreds of bad people. That SEGA ever called this series “Yakuza” is a wondrous misnomer. It should be called “Helpful Strong Man Versus…
