Following last Friday’s news of majority lay-offs at Telltale Games, questions remained regarding the status of the studio’s previously announced projects.

It has also revealed that Telltale will complete work on its interactive TV adaptation of Minecraft: Story Mode.

Finally, a Space Hulk game with Genestealers that look interesting to play

When it comes to Space Hulk, we’re used to playing as Space Marines cleansing creepy abandoned spaceships of the rabid Genestealer menace. In most cases the Genestealers are mindless AI who try to bludgeon the player’s units to death – and there’s little else going on. Space Hulk: Tactics, though, looks like it’s put a bit more thought into how the Genestealers work. They play significantly differently than the Terminators and even have their own campaign. Space Hulk: Tactics is an XCOM meets Space Hulk turn-based strategy game from Focus…

Nintendo fans are splicing Bowser with Peach and now Bowsette is trending

Last week, a new item for New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe was unveiled which created a brand new character in Mario lore. The power-up, called the Super Crown, appears to transform Toadette into a Princess Peach fusion called Peachette – and understandably, many Nintendo fans were utterly flummoxed. Is Peachette an entirely new character that only appears with the crown? Or is the crown able to transform any Mario character into a Peach version? Until yesterday, I naively thought this was the end of the debate, until I spotted…

Batman: Arkham Knight’s camera isn’t supposed to be messed with – but when you do, it reveals some amazing developer tricks.

Vampyr’s patch to “de-emphasize combat” drops next week

Focus Interactive has confirmed Vampyr’s afore-promised patch to “de-emphasise” combat in the vampire action-RPG will release later this week on 26th September 2018. “Story Mode de-emphasizes combat, placing a greater focus on narrative so players can enjoy Dr. Jonathan Reid’s journey with less challenging gameplay,” states an update on Steam. “On the other end of the scale, Hard Mode makes combat much more difficult. Players will receive less experience from killing enemies too, forcing them to rely even more on embracing citizens to grow in power. Upon starting a new…

Destiny 2 Forsaken players think they’ve found the Malfeasance quest line

Destiny 2 Forsaken players believe they’ve stumbled upon the location where the quest for the Malfeasance hand cannon begins… but cannot yet find a way to trigger the quest line. As reported by Forbes, players believe they’ve located Callum’s Grave, widely thought – thanks to a little datamining – to be the inaugural step of the quest for Malfeasance, an exotic – and extraordinarily elusive – hand cannon. Callum’s grave has been found in the Dreaming City strike, The Corrupted, which wasn’t unlocked until a clan defeated Destiny 2’s latest…

The latest trailer for Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding reveals Troy Baker will be joining the English voice cast. The new teaser for Death Stranding – which debuted at Tokyo Games Show – shows new antagonist The Man in the Golden Mask pull off said mask… only for his face to be further concealed underneath. He then drops to his knees, stirs up some black goo until the strands combine to form… well, I’m not sure what it forms, actually. A lion monster demon thing? Maybe? Perhaps it’s best if you…
