Crash Bandicoot Update Adds New Level and HDR Support on PS4

An update for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is now available on PS4, bringing a couple of interesting additions to the nostalgic package. First and foremost is a new level named Future Tense, an entirely original creation from Vicarious Visions. As for where it’s located, it’s been added to Crash Bandicoot Warped’s hub. However, for PS4 players, this isn’t the only thing to look forward to. HDR support has now been implemented, so you can see the remakes in gloriously improved colours. The update is about 560MB, so it won’t…

Drake’s New Record Has a Final Fantasy Jam on It

A slow news day story to kickstart your Friday: Drake dropped his new album Scorpion overnight which includes a song named Final Fantasy and appears to sample the legendary video game franchise. Listen carefully to the first portion of the song and you’ll hear a harp, which seems to be lifted from Final Fantasy’s legendary prelude theme song. The notes are placed in a different, less pleasing order – but the sounds definitely do appear to be taken from the classic Japanese role-playing brand. Of course, you’ll have to listen…

Amy Hennig Leaves EA, Goes Independent

With EA closing Visceral Games last year and its Amy Hennig-fronted Star Wars game, codenamed “Ragtag”, being handed over to EA Vancouver, it appeared that the future of the project was in doubt. Now, in an interview with Eurogamer at this year’s Gamelab conference, Hennig has announced that she left EA in January this year, and is intending to stay independent. “I just started my own small little independent indie studio and am consulting with some people,” Hennig said.

Microsoft’s Halo TV series is really happening

Nearly five years on, Microsoft has finally gotten its Halo TV series greenlit and into production.

Xbox Games with Gold for July named

July’s Xbox Games with Gold offering is topped by Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction and Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown – both Xbox 360 games. Conviction is the penultimate entry in the Splinter Cell series (to date, anyway), originally released in 2010. It’s decent fun – far from the height of the series, but probably not its low watermark, either (that would be Blacklist, which arrived in 2013). Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, meanwhile, is the latest version of Sega’s fighting game series, released in 2012. Xbox One offerings next…

Wolfman’s Got Nards Documentary Trailer Celebrates Monster Squad Legacy

The Monster Squad was a box office bomb when it originally hit theaters in 1987, making around $4 million at the box office. Critics bashed the movie and it seemed like its fate had been sealed right then and there. However, over the years, kids started to discover the movie at the video store and then later on VHS tapes ripped from HBO that started to get traded around. As the years went on, Monster Squad developed a hardcore cult following, which is now the subject of the new documentary…
