Resident Evil 2’s Cover Channels Classic Key Art

Resident Evil 2, the anticipated survival horror remake announced just weeks ago at E3 2018, hosted a prominent panel at San Diego Comic Con earlier today, where Capcom revealed the box art for the title. The image, which shows protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield standing back-to-back, is clearly inspired by a classic piece of key art from the original PSone release. The publisher also announced a Collector’s Edition, which comes packaged in a case inspired by the series’ iconic Item Boxes. It includes a copy of the game,…

Review: Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars (PS4)

Far Cry 5, like a few of Ubisoft’s high profile releases, has come with the promise of a weird and wonderful DLC schedule that takes the base game and places it in increasingly strange scenarios. Lost on Mars is the latest bizarre excursion for the open world shooter, and it’s probably about what you’re expecting. It doesn’t take itself seriously at all, starting with a sketchy setup that sees Nick Rye beamed up to the red planet by none other than Hurk. He needs your help to prevent a Martian…

Another Big Ghost Recon: Wildlands Patch Sneaks into View Next Week

One of those games that you don’t hear too much about here on the ‘net but has been a huge success story, Ghost Recon: Wildlands is receiving another large, feature-rich update next week.

Feature: How Sony’s First-Party Turned Critical Success into Commercial Success

It’s almost been ten years since LittleBigPlanet released, a PlayStation 3 exclusive that would record a 95 on Metacritic and eventually go on to sell around 4.5 million units as of 2010. It was a success, but like so many of Sony’s games at the time, its numbers didn’t really match its reception. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves would follow in 2009, winning a string of Game of the Year awards and cementing Naughty Dog’s status as one of the world’s best developers. It took almost a year to sell 3.8 million…

No Man’s Sky is a far different game now than when it first launched on PS4 almost two years ago, but that initial release was met with an incredibly mixed response. Many were furious, because features that Hello Games’ Sean Murray spoke about during interviews were missing, but it didn’t end at simple complaints. Murray and many members of the studio were subjected to death threats and worse over the months that would follow. The upcoming Next update finally brings full blown multiplayer to the game, one of the major…

The final entrant numbers for Evo 2018 are in, and Dragon Ball FighterZ is at the top of the pile.

According to the numbers provided by head Evo organiser Joey Cuellar — commonly referred to as Mr. Wizard — FighterZ only just edged it over Ryu and the gang, with 2530 entrants compared to 2421. Evo 2018 Numbers – #Evo20181) DragonBall…

Voldo Scuttles into SoulCalibur VI

Voldo’s always creeped us the hell out in past SoulCalibur games, and it’s safe to say that he’ll be doing it again in SoulCalibur VI. As has become something of a habit, Voldo’s been leaked ahead of an official announcement from Bandai Namco, with Xbox Israel somehow managing to post his reveal trailer early. Oops. The good news is that Voldo certainly looks like Voldo, complete with his spider-like scuttling and sexually charged thrusts. Are you a big fan of Voldo? Make some horrific noises in the comments section below.…
