Capcom Fighting Collection is a real treat for super fans that oozes with style

If you’ve lost more hair than skill with an arcade stick over the years, this may title may just be for you. I don’t think there’s an entity in the video game industry with a more distinguished back catalogue of arcade classics than Capcom. Those are just the facts. The years where these titles reigned supreme in bowling alleys and various other homes of pixelated entertainment sparkle off rose-tinted glasses. As a fan of fighting games, both modern and classic, it’s the oldies that hold a special place in my heart, even if I was never able to go and…

Game Pass got me to download Sniper Elite 5, but its strong MGS and Hitman vibes are what have me hooked

Sniper Elite 5 may have the appearance of yet another one of those, but it hides an ambitious and fun stealth game underneath. I’ve been guilty of skipping over the Sniper Elite series, and I know I’m not alone. I’ve played them all, though rarely at launch, and I’ve enjoyed them all to varying degrees. But I wasn’t particularly looking forward to Sniper Elite 5. The trailers and gameplay we got to see ahead of launch showed incremental upgrades and general refinements over its predecessors, but nothing that immediately stood out as something I needed to try. Sniper Elite 5,…

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta info, editions, and pre-order bonuses leaked by dataminers

Another year, another Call of Duty leak. Information on an open beta, game editions, and pre-order bonuses for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has reportedly leaked. Apparently, the information comes from Vanguard files pertaining to the Season 3 Reloaded update found by dataminers (thanks, CharlieIntel) According to what was found, like previous Call of Duty betas, PS4 and PS5 players will be granted early access to the open beta first. This will likely be the last year of PlayStation exclusivity should the deal between Microsoft and Activision go through. Three game editions were also revealed in the datamine. There’s…

PlayStation Plus Premium will not support DLC and add-on content when streaming

This isn’t news to those who’ve had a PlayStation Now subscription. Sony has announced that PlayStation Plus Premium will not support DLC and add-on content when streaming a title. This is according to a new PlayStation Plus guide posted on the PS Blog. What this means is that if you have DLC for a PS3 game, you won’t be able to play the additional content, and the only way to play PS3 games is through streaming. But this will also be the case with any streaming title. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, just one of the PS3 games confirmed to…

With a snap of their fingers, Bungie has ignited excitement among Warlocks in Destiny 2

With the introduction of the solar 3.0 rework, Warlocks have a hot new melee ability that’s has us feeling faint. It’s release day for Destiny 2: Season of the Haunted, and we’ve already seen numerous bits of content revealed such as a range of exciting new weapons, an explorable Leviathan, and a new dungeon coming Friday May 27. However, it was the solar 3.0 rework that caught the eye of the community, especially Warlock players, who’ve excitedly spotted their newfound finger snap melee ability. In the video embedded below, you can see each class perform numerous new or updated solar…

How the spirit of Bloodborne lives on in Elden Ring

It may not be Bloodborne 2, but one secret location in The Lands Between comes close. Despite the rumour-mongering over the years, I can promise you there will never be a Bloodborne 2. It’s just not really been Hidetaka Miyazaki’s style (yes, he did direct Dark Souls 3, but then that was Bandai Namco’s IP, and you always got the sense that he grudgingly returned so he could snuff the bonfire out for good). Besides, seven years later, the best PS4 exclusive remains perfect – and I say that despite the 2015 title looking aged, now, with a lack of…

Elden Ring’s most annoying enemy may be in more pain than it’s causing you

Elden Ring is quite similar to FromSoftware’s earlier work, in that it has no shortage of tragic tales. This also goes for enemies, some of which are simply not fun to fight against. But no enemy in the entirety of Elden Ring has garnered as much hate as the Royal Revenants. Okay, maybe they’re tied with Liurnia’s Giant Crayfish – but those are far less common in the game’s world. The Royal Revenants are the multi-limbed, crown-wearing centipede-like creatures. They’re hated because they often surprise you by spawning out of nowhere, so you can’t exactly avoid them. They’re hard to…

PSN tops 100 million users ahead of Sony’s PS Plus Premium rollout

It might be Games Pass that makes the most headlines, but Sony’s PlayStation Network isn’t shirking its money-making duties. In a world where people can’t help but compare Xbox to PlayStation, PSN to Xbox Live, Game Pass to whatever PS Plus Premium will end up being, it’s hard to stay objective about the numbers. But, per a new report from the PlayStation parent company, it’s fair to say that Sony is, indeed, raking it in. In the latest corperate strategy meeting presentation, Sony announced that the PlayStation Network currently generates a frankly eye-watering ¥1,833.8 billion (that’s over $14 billion) in…

“The days of Metacritic determining how well a game sells are long gone” says Saber boss

After finding success with both Evil Dead: The Game and World War Z, Saber CEO Matt Karch says games can look beyond Metacritic for success It’s been a good week for Embracer Group and Saber Interactive: after the publisher/developer combo announced that Evil Dead: The Game sold 500,000 units in under a week, it’s become clear that there’s an appetite for all things multiplayer horror – a trend helped into popularity by the runaway success of games like Dead by Daylight. During Embracer Group’s Q4 Report presentation, Saber Interactive CEO Matthew Karch was asked about the launch of Evil Dead:…
