We Happy Few will release in Australia following successful appeal

The Australian Classification Board has announced that, following a successful appeal by publisher Gearbox, Compulsion Games’ psychedelic dystopian adventure We Happy Few will now receive a R 18+ classification, enabling the game to be sold in the country. Back in May, We Happy Few was refused a classification in Australia, effectively banning it from sale, after it fell foul of the ratings board’s strict policies on drug use in games. The board claimed that its drug-use mechanic, which can make progress easier in some circumstances, “constitutes an incentive or reward…

Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD is now backward compatible on Xbox One

Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter are the latest Xbox 360 games to be added to the Xbox One’s ever-growing backward compatibility list. Liberation initially launched in 2012 as a PlayStation Vita exclusive, but saw a spruced-up re-release on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC in 2014 under the HD moniker. Fun fact: its new backward compatibility status means that all console games in the Assassin’s Creed series are now available on Xbox One. Liberation was initially marketed as an Assassin’s Creed 3 spin-off (although its connecting thread…

Planet Coaster’s Vintage DLC celebrates the “golden age” of theme parks

Planet Coaster’s next paid DLC update, which comes to PC on July 10th, offers a celebration of theme parking’s “golden age” in the early 20th century. It’s called the Vintage Pack and introduces seven new rides, “dozens” of scenery props, new visual effects, vending machines, and some old-time musical ambience, including barbershop-quartet-style harmonies – all intended to capture “the spirit of the timeless golden age of outdoor entertainment” and enable players to create nostalgic parks inspired by the likes of Coney Island, town fairs, and end-of-the-pier seaside amusements. On the…

Someone hacked GTA Online to tease a fake GTA6 release date

GTA is well known for its jokes and spoofs, but this week it would appear someone has beaten Rockstar at its own game by falsely advertising the next installment in the GTA series. Over the past few days, GTA Online players have seen messages supposedly advertising GTA6 appear on the side of their screens. On the surface, the announcements appeared to be fairly legitimate: they used a font similar to the official Rockstar branding, and even included a link to Rockstar’s website. Unsurprisingly, this was enough to hoodwink many players,…

UFO Trailer Brings Gillian Anderson Back to Her X-Files Roots

The trailer for Sony Pictures’ UFO has been released online, and it actually looks like it could be an intriguing science fiction thriller. The movie stars Gillian Anderson, best known for playing Dana Scully in The X-Files, in addition to including a number of other talented cast members. The story of UFO isn’t like most alien-themed science fiction movies, which typically send the main character off into space with the aliens, or at least feature a human encountering an alien on Earth like in E.T.. Instead, UFO seems to go…

Feature: It’s Time to Celebrate the PSP, Sony’s 21st Century Walkman

With the PlayStation Vita on life support and Sony seemingly disinterested in tackling the handheld arena again, it’s easy to forget that not so long ago the Japanese giant was celebrating the fact that for the first time in decades, Nintendo’s dominance in the realm of portable consoles had been well and truly challenged. While the PlayStation Portable didn’t outsell the Nintendo DS – Nintendo’s machine sold a staggering 154 million units globally – it still managed to get a whopping 82 million consoles into the hands of players all…

Shenmue I & II Sure Have Scrubbed Up Nicely on PS4

It took one small screenshot of Shenmue in EDGE magazine to sell 11-year-old Sammy on the Dreamcast, and it still holds up today. Okay, so this trailer for the PlayStation 4 version of Shenmue I & II looks like it’s stepped out of the early 2000s – but it was a handsome title back then, and it remains so today. The character and environmental art is very appealing, even if it’s obviously dated by 2018 standards. As we reported earlier, the two titles will release on one Blu-ray from 20th…
