    Bald Bouncer
    The latest UK game charts courtesy of Gfk Chart-Track are finally available and Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age is in first place for the week ending July 15th. Interestingly enough, this is the first number 1 selling game for Square Enix since Deus Ex: Mankind Divided released last year.

  • Tekken 7’s Next Add-On Character is Geese Howard
    Bald Bouncer
    The recent EVO 2017 fighting game tournament had a ton of blockbuster news for fans, including announcements for Bandai Namco’s Tekken 7. As it turns out, the next add-on character for the title has been revealed and it’s none other than Fatal Fury’s Geese Howard.


    A major antagonist in SNK’s Fatal Fury series and father to Garou’s Rock Howard, Geese represents an incredible surprise for Tekken 7. Though Capcom has collaborated with SNK numerous times, especially with its...

  • Destiny Crucible Design Lead Was “Never Happy” With PvP, Talks Destiny 2 Changes
    Bald Bouncer
    Bungie’s Lars Bakken hasn’t had the most enviable job in the past few years. As the Crucible design lead, he’s been responsible for numerous changes in Destiny’s PvP modes, buffing and nerfing weapons as seen fit. As such he’s had to deal with a lot of flak over the years but with Destiny 2 on the horizon and so many changes being made to Crucible, why would Bungie choose to revamp PvP entirely?


    Bakken spoke to DailyStar UK about this and said, “There’s a lot of people that...

  • Sony Will Cut PS4 Price To $249 and PS4 Pro Price To $349 This Holiday Claim
    Bald Bouncer
    Although Sony has had a great 2017 so far, the PS4 has no major AAA exclusive games penned for release this Q4, except Gran Turismo Sport. In a way, Gran Turismo Sport has a huge responsibility of pushing the PS4 sales further for all the important Holiday season. Things become even more challenging if one puts Forza Motorsport 7 into the equation.


    So the PS4 may not be getting as many Holiday exclusives as the Nintendo Switch or even the Xbox One this Holiday- but against the...

  • Xbox One Update Allows Custom Gamerpics, Co-Streaming Via Mixer
    Bald Bouncer
    The latest Xbox One firmware update comes with quite the bevy of features. The main appeal seems to be custom Gamerpics which is a fancy word for allowing users to upload their own profile pictures. These can be uploaded from an Xbox One, Windows 10 PC or your smartphone. Keep in mind that your picture should adhere to the Code of Conduct since all users will be able to see it.


    The July update also allows Mixer users to co-stream, which means that up to four players on their...

  • Overwatch Patch 2.15 Now Live on Xbox One And PS4, Doomfist Not Included

    A new patch for Overwatch is now live on Xbox One and PS4. Unsurprisingly, it does not contain Doomfist, the newest melee-based hero who launched last week on the Public Test Realm. Instead, there are a few bug fixes that players can look forward to.


    For instance, a bug that caused a few players to lose audio during matches has been fixed. Furthermore, the sound effects of the menu screen from Horizon Lunar Colony’s gravity-less space section persisting when switching to a...

    NASCAR Heat 2 Gets First Official Gameplay Trailer

    704Games has released the first official gameplay trailer for the upcoming NASCAR Heat 2 by Monster Games, the follow up to last year’s debut NASCAR game by the developer. The upcoming game takes on the base built by the last year and expands upon it significantly, adding an expanded career mode featuring all three national racing series, as well as 40-car online multiplayer, with two-player local multiplayer also returning.


    That apart, NASCAR Heat 2 will feature new drivers,...

  • Destiny 2 New Video Discusses The Making Of Its Story

    Destiny was not known for its story and especially not for its storytelling. While the concept art for the game teased an epic backstory and a symphonic narrative, what we got in the game was minimal context, and backstory that was pushed to Grimoire Cards that didn’t even exist in the game- meaning for most players, the game basically had no plot whatsoever.


    This is one thing that Bungie is addressing with the upcoming Destiny 2, and one thing that they have been pushing greatly....

  • Marvel vs Capcom Infinite New Footage Shows Off PS4 Gameplay

    Marvel vs Capcom Infinite may have had all of its thunder stolen by the infinitely superior seeming Injustice 2 and the upcoming Dragon Ball Fighter Z, but there are undoubtedly long time fans of the series who are still waiting on the fourth entry in the series. Those fans should be pretty happy at the new footage for the game that was shared today.


    This footage shows off some new character moves and combos- and there’s 30 minutes of it, too, so you’ll be able to see a lot...

  • Crackdown 3 Xbox One X Footage Walks Us Through Some New Abilities

    Brand new footage for the upcoming Xbox One and Windows 10 game Crackdown 3 was released today. It’s 10 minutes of free roaming gameplay, meaning we get to see the style of free form action that made the games cult classics to begin with, and we also get to see some brand new abilities, as well as the Black Hole Gun.





    That’s not all, either- the footage is running on the Xbox One X, so we get to see what is likely to be the system’s showcase launch...

  • Far Cry 5 New Details: Ubisoft Explains Why They Selected Montana

    Far Cry’s settings have usually always been in the thick of the wilderness, whether it be on tropical islands or deep in the mountains. With Far Cry 5, the series is going to Montana, coming to the USA for the first time, and there’s a feeling that the setting is different from anything else the series has ever done before. We recently held an interview with Drew Holmes, lead writer of the game, and asked him about why the development team at Ubisoft decided to go with Montana as a setting,...

  • Destiny 2: ‘We Can’t Change The Core, Otherwise It’s Not Destiny’, Says Bungie

    With the launch of Destiny 2 approaching, information on the game has been coming in thick and fast, and while most of it has been very exciting, especially for fans of the game, there have been a few people who’re worried that there haven’t been enough changes to the formula that was set up in the first game. Bungie, however, feel like they’ve made plenty of changes, and the things that they have not changed needed to stay as they were, because they define the identity of the series- which...

  • UK Charts: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Still On Top

    Vicarious Visions’ Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is still the best selling UK title for the week ending July 8th according to Gfk Chart-Track. Despite criticism of the difficulty, N. Sane Trilogy has seen generally favourable reviews and continues to assert its dominance (in terms of retail sales, that is).


    Grand Theft Auto 5 is in second place and is apparently spending its 199th week in the UK charts. That’s just insane. Overwatch is in third place, having placed numerous...

    PS4 Games Are Now Playable On PlayStation Now

    If you want to play PS4 games, but not on a PS4, you now can- sorta. As announced earlier this year, PS4 games have now been made available on Sony’s PS Now streaming service. This means that you can play PS4 games in the PS Now catalog on devices which support PS Now, including your PC.


    Of course, remember, these games are not actually going to be playable natively- they are being streamed, meaning you need to have an appropriate internet connection, and that there will be issues...

  • Nintendo Looking Into Selling Classic Games At Retail

    One of Nintendo’s key strengths over any and all other companies in the industry – after probably its first party catalog – is its legacy catalog. Nintendo has such a long and rich history of classic games, games that people have a lot of nostalgia for, games that influenced the entire industry, games that have held up amazingly well, that it is surprising the company has dropped the ball so often on leveraging it properly.


    The Virtual Console has been hit or miss (more miss...

  • Destiny 2 is “A Hard Reset” That Activision “Really Debated”

    Over the past few days, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg has talked about how Destiny 2, Bungie’s sequel to the hugely successful shared world shooter, will have more frequent content updates. However, even the very nature of the sequel being a reset is something that both parties are fervently pursuing.


    Speaking to Games Industry Biz, Hirshberg said, “Destiny 2 is a sequel, a hard reset, and that choice was not a casual decision. It was something we really debated,...

  • Xbox One X Benchmarks Reveal How Existing Games Will Perform At 4K Resolutions

    We’ve heard so much about how powerful the Xbox One X is- but ultimately, the best demonstration of that is seeing it in action for ourselves, and understanding how it is working behind the scenes, if we cant. Most gamers can’t, of course- but the fine folks at Digital Foundry can, and they posted a lengthy video explaining how games perform on the Xbox One X versus the existing Xbox One S.


    According to the analysis, Forza 7 uses up 77.8% of the GPU power in the original Xbox...
