Jonathan Blow shows more footage of his new Sokoban-inspired game

Jonathan Blow, creator of Braid and The Witness, has shown more of his new puzzle game. It’s a game inspired by (and even, it seems, codenamed) Sokoban, the old Japanese game about pushing boxes in specific orders to cover all the marks on the floor. Blow showed footage during his talk at Spanish conference Gamelab, which I popped along to a few weeks ago. It’s taken a little while for the videos to appear online. In the footage, the viewer looks down into a leafy kind of compartmentalised level to…

World of Warcraft and all current expansions now included in subscription

World of Warcraft’s monthly subscription now unlocks access to all base game and existing expansion content, Blizzard has announced. So, for £9.99 a month you’ll be able to play everything up to and including 2016 expansion Legion and no longer have to add on anything else separately. The caveat, obviously, is this August’s big Battle for Azeroth pack. That’s still a separate purchase, and priced £39.99. Regardless, the change streamlines the process for anyone still thinking about getting into World of Warcraft now, or not caught up on everything the…

Your Heart Will Go on in Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII’s Co-Op Mode

If you haven’t been paying attention to Call of Duty’s co-op Zombies modes then know one thing: they’re utterly insane now. As announced earlier in the year, Black Ops IIII is going all in, with a mode that will start out on the Titanic and then take you to a Roman coliseum. Why not, eh? This year’s instalment doesn’t have a single player campaign, so Treyarch may as well go mad with the rest of the package. There’ll actually be three full Zombies experiences at launch, with Blood of the…

Dante’s Inferno and RUSE are now backward-compatible on Xbox One

Visceral Games’ hellish hack-and-slasher Dante’s Inferno, and Ubisoft’s real-time WW2 strategy game RUSE, now feature backward-compatibility support on Xbox One. Dante’s Inferno launched in 2010, a year or so after Visceral Games’ excellent third-person sci-fi horror Dead Space, and its announcement came as something of a surprise; it was quite the departure for publisher EA, whose back catalogue wasn’t exactly bursting with action games inspired by 14th century Italian poetry at the time. It did, however, provide EA with a suitably moody netherworld explorer to compete with Kratos, the gloomy…

Uncharted Fan Film Sparks Digital Series Discussions

Nathan Fillion’s turn as Naughty Dog’s wise-cracking rogue Nathan Drake has set tongues wagging right throughout the industry, and after amassing almost two million views in just 24 hours, there’s understandably some discussions taking place about what this means moving forwards. According to director Allan Ungar, speaking with Entertainment Weekly, it was very much shot with the intention of being a fun cinematic short – but understandably, the Canadian’s phone is currently on fire. “I actually got a couple emails today, I’m not going to say from who, but there’s…

Soapbox: Five Years On, Warframe Is Something Special

2013 was a simpler time. The Last of Us had just blown people’s socks off on the PlayStation 3, people were anticipating The Order: 1886, and the PlayStation 4 was new. In among such launch classics as Call of Duty: Ghosts and Knack, a free-to-play title called Warframe launched. Warframe, in it’s launch state, was tough to love. The visuals were distinct and the combat fluid, but the procedurally generated levels weren’t exciting, nor was the constant grind to farm a litany of resource types to craft new gear. Almost…
