Call of Duty: WW2 is real, obvs

Cor blimey, love a duck, and stone the crows: Activision have announced that the next Call of Duty game will be Call of Duty: WWII [official site]. Their official announcement says about as much as the leak which gave this away four weeks ago. Another supposed leak has sprung with unconfirmed babbling about unsurprising things like D-Day and a co-op mode. But what's most important…

The RPG Scrollbars: Before Mass Effect Andromeda

Since the original trailers, some players have had questions about Mass Effect Andromeda [official site] and some of its details. In the name of answers, we present this snippet from the official prequel novel. Available March 28th from all good bookshelves. From where Director Tann stood, the curves of the Nexus stretched out like the wings of an angel, embracing Andromeda and all its potential.…

Crusader Kings II Monks and Mystics: The joy of sects

What is Crusader Kings II [official site] missing? I've been playing again recently, drawn back in by The Reaper's Due and its perfect simulation of the general snotty sickness of an English winter. I'd never have thought of disease as such an important addition, which is a bit silly really considering the historical impact of the Black Death, and the fact that entire military campaigns…

Quantum Break review

Quantum Break [official site] has finally received a proper PC release via Steam (although sadly only Steam so far), rather than the ridiculous Windows Store. (A store that hides where it installs games on your PC, which isn't something you'll want with a 70GB game!) I've played it through for the very first time this week, and can tell you wot I think of this…

Quake Champions Has Familiar Voices & Big Eyeballs

I do not believe that I shall ever come to terms with the fact that Quake III's announcer was not, in fact, voiced by Michael Dorn. I believed that to be the case for so long, having been told it was so by someone at university. Watching this trailer for upcoming online shooter Quake Champions [official site], my heart leaped when I heard the familiar…

Battleface: New Battlefield Game Teaser-Trailed

At 9PM BTS/4PM ET, we'll find out whether the new Battlefield game is Battlefield 5, Battlefield: More Uncomfortable Police Brutality Allusions, or something else entirely. I'm wondering if it could be something a little science-fictional, in order to go toe-to-toe with what COD is up to. Also, wild speculation funtimes: the seconds-long teaser trailer below suggests that its Big Face Man is looking up at…

Street Fighter V Supports Steam OS , Beta This Weekend

Street Fighter V [official site] will run on Linux. There's a sentence I never expected to write. Through the Steam community pages for the game, Capcom have confirmed that the latest in their glorious series of biff 'em ups will support Steam OS. "We are working closely with Valve on this endeavor, and will have more details to announce in the near future, so stay…

Black Desert Closed Beta Launches, Has Character

Black Desert Online [official site] is an MMO about sprightly, perfect-skinned warriors doing battle with various grimy monsters. The latter part looks fine, but it's the enormously detailed character creator that let's you influence those sprightly fighters that makes it interesting to me. After being released in Korea last year, it's now in closed beta in the west.

Can You Solve The Riddle Of Batman’s System Specs?

The wailing and gnashing of teeth regarding Batman: Arkham Kerniggut's PC port continues, as the publisher/developer's first attempt to improve matters involves essentially telling everyone to turn all the settings right down for the time being, then make do with a game running in 720 at 30 frames per second. Oy gevalt. So, hardware which many feel should be capable of running the game with…

First Look At Total War: Warhammer Is Totally Warhammer

This is a good trailer. It's a good trailer even though it doesn't contain even a picosecond of in-game footage. This first 'cinematic' trailer for the Creative Assembly's RTS adaptation of Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy Battles is a good trailer because it's got a big old dust-up between the Orcs (on boars!) and the Empire (on Griffons!) with a side-helping of Zombie Dragons, dwarfs fighting…

Batman: Arkham Knight Defeated By Calendar Man

Batman is well known for having some of the best villains in comics, but there are far more that are less well-known though, for one reason or another. Calendar Man for example is a villain whose crimes are related to the day upon which they're committed. That sounds like the kind of thing I can tenuously relate to news that Batman: Arkham Knight [official site]…

London, Arise! Sunless Sea Is Released This Friday

After a year drifting through the sinister oceans of Early Access, Failbetter's wonderful Sunless Sea [official site] is released this Friday. Full steam ahead, Mr. Boatswain, full steam ahead. It's a game of steampunk and Lovecraft, sailing and survival, roleplaying and pint-sized naval combat, wonderful words and terrifying faces. It was one of 2014's best games as far as Adam and I were concerned, and…

Grey Goo Oozes Launch Trailer Ahead Of Jan 23rd Release

On typing Grey Goo into Google, the search box auto-resolved what I was typing into Grey Goose. Might I have just stumbled across the inevitable sequel to Grey Goo, in which its asymmetrical single- and multiplayer is expanded to include a world-ending race of nanogosling, consuming all matter with their honking beaks? Think on this question, I say, while watching the launch trailer for the…

Dumbrella: Resident Evil Revelations 2

The opening cinematic for Resident Evil Revelations 2 is below. Why am I posting an intro to a game that I'll almost certainly never play? I think it's because after watching it this morning, I moved from almost complete apathy to mild curiosity - I cannot imagine a single human being who would be the ideal target audience for this video. It suggests the game…

In The Grump Tank: Arkham Knight

Hardly any time has passed since the previous Arkham Knight trailer but I wanted to share this one for reasons that will become obvious. It's all about the car, that being the big new feature and all, and it has managed to eradicate any enthusiasm I had about getting behind the wheel. The Batmobile looks more like a military fetishist's wargasmic dream (never forget), and…

Zeldalike Animal Gods Reborn Will Be Born

The age of "Zelda-inspired" is very much upon us. After the best part of a decade of our being besieged by Mario-inspired platformers, Johnny Indie's sights are aimed a touch higher these, at Nintendo's deathless action-adventure/fairy-bothering series. Latest case in point is Animal Gods Reborn, which has just successfully cast its Kickstarter incantation and is now preparing for the dark rite of stretch goals. Set…

Because you've been good, if you click on the pictures, they'll get extra-big. Big enough that you could use them as a desktop background, and pretend you're playing The Witcher 3: The…
