GTA San Andreas, Rockstar Table Tennis get Xbox One backward compatibility next week

Rockstar has announced a trio of classic Xbox 360 games getting backward compatibility next week; as of June 7th, GTA San Andreas, Midnight Club LA, and Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis will be playable on Xbox One. GTA San Andreas, as if it needs much of an introduction, was Rockstar’s follow-up to the wonderful Vice City, and took the series in a slightly grittier direction. It’s an absolutely vast experience, and was an especially astonishing achievement at the time of its PS2 release in 2004. It lunges from the urban…

You can now battle new Elder Dragon Lunastra in Monster Hunter World

Monster Hunter World is now home to a new Elder Dragon, in the form of Lunastra, the Empress of Flame. Lunastra is an old-favourite in the Monster Hunter universe and the female counterpart to Elder Dragon Teostra, who’s been in World since launch. Lunastra takes things up a notch, however, and Capcom notes that “her capacity to alter the environment around her is unmatched. Stay awake and alert to her burning blue fire at all times if you want to survive.” Cool drinks might be wise. Notably, Lunastra is the…

Review: Agony (PS4)

When UK tabloid newspaper The Sun says your new title is “the most controversial game since Grand Theft Auto” you know you’re on for a winner. This potential for upset has been a double-edged sword for developer Mad Mind Studios, who’s been battling the censors and had to cut an undisclosed amount of content to secure an ESRB rating of Mature. With its early footage replete with graphic imagery and bloody violence, expectations are high for gore-hounds and fans of survival horror. The final product emerges as a stylish and…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Leaked Via Collectible Keychain

Direct sequel to Origins? by Stephen Tailby 16 hours ago A photograph of a keyring has outed Ubisoft’s next Assassin’s Creed entry. Picked up by Jeux-Video, the next game in the series will be named Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Judging by the trinket in the picture, it looks as though we’ll be heading to ancient Rome or Greece in the next adventure. This lines up with how Assassin’s Creed Origins concludes, so it seems that Odyssey will be a direct sequel to the well-received Egyptian entry. We don’t know any more…
