Promising open-world Lovecraft horror The Sinking City gets its first gameplay trailer

Developer Frogwares has unveiled the first gameplay trailer for its promising open-world Lovecraft horror, The Sinking City, which is due to launch next March on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A word of warning: this probably isn’t an ideal watch if straight razors (or tentacles) make you squeamish. Frogwares, whose previous work includes the extremely solid investigation-based Sherlock Holmes series, announced The Sinking City – described as the developer’s most ambitious project to date – in March last year.

Matt Ryan is back as John Constantine in the first trailer for Constantine: City of Demons. Ryan originally played the character in the short-lived live-action series based on the DC Comics character. However, he’s found his way back to the role several times, most recently becoming a series regular on Legends of Tomorrow.

That’s pretty much all the information that the trailer does offer, however, aside from…

A second, flashier instalment, made its…

Random: Sean Murray’s Face Immortalised on No Man’s Sky Planet

Murray on Mars by Sammy Barker 4 hours ago You’ve got to respect Sean Murray. Hello Games’ lead man may have spoken out of turn around the launch of No Man’s Sky, but the developer has had to deal with an Internet backlash unlike any other seen before. That he even continues to get out of bed is a testament to his strength of character, but he’s actually found the motivation to iterate and improve upon the exploratory space sim’s original build, making it better than it’s ever been before.…
