Now that Deathloop is delayed again, go play Prey: Mooncrash

Since Deathloop was first announced, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Prey: Mooncrash, the exceptional expansion to Arkane’s Prey. It follows a similar sort of formula to what the studio have told us about Deathloop, with roguelite elements and permadeath that essentially mean you’ll need to start all over again after each run. And now Deathloop has been delayed again, I reckon this is the perfect time to get back into Mooncrash – or give it a try if you missed it. Read more

Arkane’s Deathloop delayed into September

Six weeks before they were due to release Deathloop, Arkane have announced they’re delaying the timeloop FPS by four months.

Have You Played… Dishonored 2?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Occasionally I have these moments where I can’t stop thinking about Dishonored 2. They come in fits and spurts, when I’m playing a game or I’m ordering a takeaway or I’m reading a book. I think to myself, “this just isn’t A Crack In The Slab though, is it?” (more…)

Now, though, we finally the exact date of your man’s never-ending night of bloodshed – or, at least, the date we’ll be able to get our hands on it. Following a potential leak on an Aussie PlayStation store, a new trailer has put a pin on May 21st as the start of Deathloop’s stabby showdown. (more…)
